3. Creating Item Information (Listing)
The Item’s features mentioned in the Details/Description, including, but not limited to, the Item’s condition, must match the features as declared by the Seller. Items listed for sale must be available for Buyers to order for as long as the Item’s Information remains published on the Website. A listed Item can therefore be temporarily or permanently removed from the Website by a Seller at any point if the Item has not been ordered, by deleting the Item from User’s Listings.
4. Seller’s obligations
Users agree to sell only Items of which they are the sole owner or, in the case of second hand goods dealers/shops, on behalf of persons who are the sole owners of the Items. Users must ensure they are not infringing any applicable laws and regulations or third-party rights in any way whatsoever by submitting Item Information to ExpaTrust.com or listing an Item for sale via the Website. Users promise that the condition and specification of the Items they list on the Website are as described in the Item’s Details/Description.
5. Process for approving Listing
To ensure the consistency of the Items listed for sale on the Website, ExpaTrust.com reserves the right to accept or refuse a Seller’s Item listing before it is posted on the Website and, where appropriate, provide modifications to the Item main photograph, within the limit of a simple silhouetting on white/neutral background. If the Item Information is accepted, ExpaTrust.com will send the User an email confirming that. The curating services offered by ExpaTrust.com are currently free of charge.
6. Listing Modifications
After Item is being posted on the Website Seller may request to modify his/her Item Information or answer on questions/comments in the section reserved for this purpose. The Seller has the possibility of changing Item’s Price or moving it into Free section at any time via Manage Item option on Item’s Listing page
7. Listing Posting Period
All listings will be posted for a period of three (3) months and will be automatically removed if the extended renewal period offered to you by email, is not confirmed.
