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

laws, rules and regulations in the jurisdictions in which you will sell and ship the goods to; and

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.

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.

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.
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.

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

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.

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.

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

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
