PART IV: OUR ONLINE MARKETPLACE

The TCG Platform also allows third party sellers to sell their own goods and services. Our marketplace technology allows sellers to list their products and services for sale and facilitates payments between buyers and sellers via third party payment processors.

We are not a consignment service. We do not take ownership, possession or title to any of the goods being sold by third party vendors on the TCG Platform. We merely connect buyers and sellers of goods online. When you buy or sell products or services on the TCG Platform, unless otherwise indicated by us, you are buying and selling goods and services directly with a third party seller or another user of the TCG Platform.

Terms Applicable to Sellers

To operate an online store on the TCG Platform marketplace, you will be required to submit an application to us.

If you list your products or services for sale on the TCG Platform you represent and warrant to us, and any purchaser of your products or services that (i) the description of your goods is accurate and not misleading; (ii) you are lawfully permitted to sell the goods or offer the services you make available; (ii) the goods are authentic; (iii) the goods are safe and comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations in the jurisdictions in which you will sell and ship the goods to; and (iv) you have acquired all necessary rights to use the photos, trademarks and tradenames you upload in connection with the sale of any goods or services.

As a seller on the TCG Platform:

  • it shall be your responsibility to ensure you accurately display your full legal name (whether personally or your business name if you are offering goods for sale as a business), as the seller of the goods or services, on the pages displaying products and services you are offering for sale;
  • you agree that you are responsible for the goods and services you sell via the TCG Platform marketplace.

While we do not actively monitor or review all product and service listings, we reserve the right to remove any listing or product images you upload to the TCG Platform if we reasonably believe they are misleading, fraudulent, contrary to these Terms or otherwise do not conform with our internal listing requirements, as updated and amended from time-to-time. We may also reject, cancel or terminate any order placed on the TCG Platform, including accepted orders, for any reason, including to protect buyers where we reasonably believe a seller has posted goods or services for sale which do not comply with these Terms.

As a seller, you may elect to remove your goods from the TCG Platform at any time. If you require assistance to delist your goods, please contact us.

Terms Applicable to Buyers

Unless indicated on the webpage hosting the products you purchase on the TCG Platform, products offered for sale are offered by other users and third party vendors, not us. When you purchase products on the TCG Platform, we accept payment and remit your payment to the applicable seller, after deducting our fees.

As we merely provide the marketplace technology to allow our users and third party sellers to sell their goods and services, you agree that we accept no responsibility, and shall not be liable to you, in connection with any products or services sold by our users or third party vendors. Accordingly, you accept all risks associated with buying products or services from third party vendors on the TCG Platform, including but not limited to, another user posting misleading or fraudulent information or failing to duly facilitate refunds and product returns.

As the TCG Platform merely facilitates the sale of goods and services between independent buyers and sellers, we do not represent or warrant that:

  • product descriptions, images or other content uploaded on the TCG Platform by third party sellers is accurate, complete or error-free;
  • the goods or service you purchase are of any particular quality or standard, conform to the descriptions provided by third-party sellers
  • the products are safe for consumption or use.
Prices and Placing an Order

Sellers are permitted to revise pricing information any time prior to accepting and processing an order from a buyer. Accordingly, prices listed on the TCG Platform by sellers shall be deemed to be an invitation to make an offer and place an order. When a buyer submits an order, the order is subject to the seller’s acceptance at the list price. Even in the event of the automated processing of an order, you agree that the seller will have the opportunity to review and accept it prior to shipment. This allows sellers to confirm their products are still available for sale and that they are able to ship to the shipping address provided. As a buyer, once your order is accepted, you agree to pay all fees and taxes specified in these Terms and on the checkout page.

Our Fees

While listing goods or services for sale on the TCG Platform as a seller is free, in the event an order is placed, we charge a fee on the sale price of each order. Our fees are communicated to sellers via email and/or displayed in their online accounts. Our fees may be updated from time to time as communicated to you. However, we will provide at least fourteen (14) days’ notice of any such changes via email or from within your account. Our fees are deducted from payments we receive from the buyer prior to us releasing the balance of the purchase price to the seller.

Taxes

You agree to pay any and all sales taxes, whether Canadian or foreign, applicable to this agreement or arising in any way from your purchase of goods or services and use of the TCG Platform.

You agree and acknowledge that if you are offering products, licensing us User Content or providing services via the TCG Platform, you may be required to collect and remit sales, income and other taxes to applicable government authorities in connection with the supply of your goods, content and services. You agree that we are not responsible for, and shall not be liable in connection with, your failure to collect and remit any and all such taxes. To the extent you earn any income as a result of using the TCG Platform, you agree that it shall be your sole responsibility for declaring and paying all taxes associated therewith, including but not limited to sales and income tax, in all applicable jurisdictions.

You agree to indemnify us against any claims from a government or taxing authority arising from or related to your failure to deduct and remit applicable sales and income taxes.

You agree that upon request and subject to applicable laws, we may share records of your income earned on or via the TCG Platform with governmental authorities, including tax authorities.

Shipping

You agree to pay all shipping fees displayed on the checkout page in connection with your order. Sellers may also cancel or correct shipping fees after an order has been place, however, upon making any such changes, buyers shall have the right to cancel or terminate the order if they do not accept the amended fees.

As we are not the seller of the goods, we make no representations or warranties as to shipping times. Any shipping times displayed to you should be viewed as an estimate only.

Refunds and Returns

All refunds and return policies shall be the responsibility of the seller to display on their product listing pages on the TCG Platform. Absent any such return or refund policy being displayed by the applicable seller, as a buyer you agree that refunds will only be granted if (i) the goods sold and delivered do not materially conform with the description provided by the seller on the TCG Platform; (ii) we reasonably conclude that the goods are inauthentic or otherwise violate the terms of this agreement or our policies; or (iii) the seller fails to ship the goods within twenty (20) calendar days of the order being placed. Otherwise, all sales are final. Shipping costs are not refundable and return shipping fees may apply, if a return is granted. Accordingly, you accept that you may not be permitted to return or exchange any of the products you order from the TCG Platform.

COMPLAINTS: If you believe that a seller has not complied with their own refund and return policy or these terms, to raise a complaint and commence the refund process, you must email us within three (3) days of your goods being received or within three (3) days following the expiration of the above twenty (20) calendar day period. Your email must specify one or more of the above reasons in which you are requesting the refund.

We will make a determination as to whether a refund will be processed based on the information supplied by both the buyer and the seller by deadlines we may impose after the complaint is raised. Our refund determinations are final and you agree that pending our determination, we may either (i) refund the purchase price in full after the buyer has returned the goods, at their expense, via return shipping to the seller; or (ii) deem the sale to have duly concluded and not process the refund.

As a seller, you accept all risks and losses arising from our (or the applicable payment processor’s) determination to grant a refund or chargeback, including the risk that the products in question may not be returned, or may not be returned in the condition they were shipped in. You agree that our determination as to any dispute or claim you have arising from our refund determination shall be brought only against the other user, whether as buyer or seller, and not us.

If we approve your refund claim, you must ship the goods back to the seller within five (5) calendar days, or such longer period if approved by the seller. However, return shipping fees are at your expense. We do not provide return shipping labels or arrange for return shipping. You must provide a tracking code from a major shipping company (FedEx, Purolator etc). Refunds will not be processed with our payment processors until we have received confirmation from the shipping company that the goods have been returned to the seller. Even in the event we permit a refund, where you fail to ship the products being returned in the time period specified, we reserve the right to refuse the refund thereafter.

Payments from Buyers to Us

All payments for the purchase of goods on the TCG Platform are paid to us. We use a third-party payment processor, PayPal Canada Co. and their related and affiliated entities (collectively “PayPal”), to process payments from you. Although we may display, embed or redirect you to their forms on the TCG Platform, when you provide your payment details, you are providing them directly to PayPal. You consent to their collection and use of your personal information in doing so and their applicable agreements and terms of use. In order to facilitate payments, you may be required to hold a PayPal account or provide us or PayPal with your banking and payment information. For more information on PayPal’s terms of service for Canadian users, visit https://www.paypal.com/ca/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full

We will have access to view portions of your payment information and transaction details via PayPal. We will also automatically share that information with the applicable seller on the TCG Platform. However, we do not collect or store your full credit card number. You acknowledge that PayPal may have their own terms and conditions and privacy practices that apply to you and your personal information. If you have any questions concerning our third-party payment providers, please contact us.

Payments from Us to Sellers

After deducting our fees and taxes in accordance with these Terms and subject to a refund being processed in favour of the buyer, we release the balance of the purchase price via PayPal, typically within seven (7) days, or after the expiration of any return or refund period, for a seller’s goods. You will be required to have a PayPal account to receive payments.

Payment Holds and Chargebacks

We reserve the right to withhold payment to a seller pending the resolution of any refund claim or complaint raised by a buyer.

You agree that as a seller, you shall be fully liable and responsible for any chargebacks processed by our payment processors, credit card providers, banks or other third party. In the event we provided you with your payment and a chargeback is subsequently processed, you agree to return the applicable payment(s) to us. In no event will we be liable or responsible for any chargebacks processed in favour of a buyer or other third party.
