USING THE BIS MARKETPLACE
We only provide a platform for a Seller to list their product for sale and a Buyer to buy such product with the intent of completing the purchase and transaction of such product. BEAUTY IN SOUND (BIS) do not act as agent of the Seller and we do not offer for sale, sell, buy or exchange any Product Listing. Except for providing limited administrative services to facilitate the Buyer and the Seller entering into a sale contract for a private product sale, we are not involved in the contracting process nor are we a party to the sale contract between the Buyer and the Seller.

SELLING A LISTED PRODUCT
A Seller must first complete the BIS Marketplace Selling Form and upload photos and related information. Further information can be found in our FAQs.
BIS will consider the proposed Product Listing and confirm if the Product Listing is accepted to be listed on the BIS Marketplace. BIS may assist Sellers in the creation of their listings (including the content of such listings) but it remains each Seller’s sole responsibility to make sure that its listings are accurate. The seller will have the opportunity approve the advert before it goes live.
After the Product Listing is accepted for listing, you shall be committed to have the product listed with us exclusively for a minimum period of 6 months. This means that during this period, you shall not use another means of sale unless we agree and notify you in writing of our consent. Therefore, we require you to exclusively use the BIS Marketplace to sell your product, once we have accepted the Product Listing.
BEAUTY IN SOUND gives no warranty or representation as to the anticipated or likely selling price of any Product Listing. Any price given, whether written or oral, as to the estimated selling price of any Product Listing is a statement of opinion only and may be subject to revision from time to time at BEAUTY IN SOUND’s sole discretion and should not be relied upon as
an indication of the actual selling price.
If you are a Seller listing a product for sale on the BIS Marketplace: you are solely responsible for the factual accuracy of, and for any judgments or opinions expressed in, the description of each Product Listing entered by you, and for any error, misstatement or omission of information in that description, as well as the condition, authenticity and quality of the product items. If you are a Seller you represent and warrant that you are the legal owner of the product items and free to sell the products listed on the BIS Marketplace and that you will complete the sale of the Product Listing to the successful Buyer and that sale will be free of any charges or encumbrances and transfer legal ownership to the Buyer. Once a sale is agreed, you are not entitled to increase the selling price by charging any VAT or other sales tax or charges to the Buyer.
If a Buyer agrees to buy the Seller’s product, the Buyer enters into a contract directly with the Seller. Payment will be received by BEAUTY IN SOUND and funds will be transferred to the Seller via Bank Transfer. Any fees and commission owed to BEAUTY IN SOUND will be subtracted from the full amount prior to the transfer of any money to the Seller.
If you as the Seller withdraw your Product Listing from sale, or from the Coming Soon list, or following a Product Listing purchase, you fail to complete the sale of the Product Listing within the timeframe agreed with the Buyer for any reason other than the default of the Buyer, you will be obliged to pay the fees to BEAUTY IN SOUND.
BUYING A LISTED PRODUCT
If you are a Buyer making an offer to the Seller for a product on the BIS Marketplace, you acknowledge that it is your responsibility to:
review the product’s listing description, photographs and information provided in relation to the product by or on behalf of the Seller in the comments section;
conduct your own due diligence on the product before purchase;
arrange an inspection of the product before purchase;
check the product at the point of collection;
independently determine the description, ownership, value, condition, authenticity, quality of the product and any additional fees connected to the purchase such as government fees and taxes, finance charges; and
pay shipping and delivery costs associated with your purchase of the product item, including but not limited to taxes, fees and testing charges and any additional fees.
The Seller is solely responsible for the factual accuracy of, and for any opinions expressed in, the description of a Product Listing, and for any error, misstatement or omission of information in that description, as well as the condition, authenticity and quality of the Product Listing. BEAUTY IN SOUND is not responsible for the accuracy of such information.
BEAUTY IN SOUND reserves the right to remove or suspend the publication of a Product Listing on the BIS Marketplace at any time and in its sole discretion. If a Product Listing is so removed or suspended on the BIS Marketplace, we will attempt to contact you to explain why your advert has been removed or suspended but are under no obligation to do so.
BEAUTY IN SOUND will receive the money from the Seller via the BIS Marketplace. Funds are then transferred to the Buyer less any owing fees and commission. Upon transfer of the money to the Seller, BEAUTY IN SOUND will set up a channel of communication between the Seller and Buyer who will complete the transaction.
Upon the transfer of funds to the Seller for a Product Listing, the Buyer enters into a contractual agreement with the Seller to complete the transaction. The arrangement and costs of delivery are the sole responsibility of the Seller and Buyer and BEAUTY IN SOUND will not enter into the arrangements of delivery of the Product Listing.
It is the responsibility of the Seller to ensure any products being sold are shipped and delivered safely. BEAUTY IN SOUND does not accept any liability for any damage caused in the delivery process.
Using the BIS Marketplace is free for Buyers. It is the Seller’s responsibility to pay the appropriate Listing Fee and forfeit the relevant commission on each sale.
