THE BUYLIST

TCGplayer provides the Buylist Program as an online service that allows Stores to purchase products on their Buylist from Players. Stores create Buylist Pricing, which contains items, quantities and pricing. TCGplayer then acts to fulfill this list on behalf of the Store. Our service provides a platform for these transactions to take place.


ACCOUNT SETUP

To participate in the Buylist Program, a Store must review the program documentation and opt in to the Buylist Program, along with its relevant Terms of Service and submit information, such as address, phone number and payment method details. A prerequisite to Buylist Program participation is that a Store must be a Direct Seller and therefore accept the Terms of Service for the Direct Program.

Please see our Privacy Policy for our account and usage terms of service.


ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

Participating in the TCGplayer Buylist Program is limited to parties that can lawfully enter into a contract. Minors are not allowed to buy or sell within the Buylist Program. Stores must be located in the United States to participate in the Buylist Program.

TCGplayer reserves the right to refuse service to anyone at any time for any reason.


SHIPPING EXPECTATIONS

All items shipped by TCGplayer to the store will have shipping cost covered by the store. TCGplayer determines the shipping method best fit for the items, which will also include tracking. You authorize TCGplayer to deduct these shipping costs from your Withholdings amount or your payment method should your Withholdings not be enough to cover shipping charges. Should a package be lost en route to a Store, TCGplayer will credit the Store's account at fair market value.


STORE RESTRICTIONS

The accounts of Stores may be limited in a manner that allows them to make a certain amount of transactions within a given time at the sole discretion of TCGplayer. TCGplayer reserves the right to refuse service to anyone at any time for any reason. Products may be added or removed at any time without notice and as such, the inventory to fulfill the Buylist Pricing list fluctuates. Stores having a Buylist Pricing list fulfilled are required to pay for items at the price listed when the Buylist Offer was initiated.


DEPOSITS/PAYMENTS

A Store must add funds in the form of deposits to their Withholding amount by setting up an allocated percentage every payment cycle, a set amount every payment cycle or by initiating a one-time payment. The Store gives permission for TCGplayer to deduct from a Store’s Withholdings when TCGplayer fulfills items from the Store's Buylist Pricing List. You give TCGplayer the permission to pull funds from your payment method for deposits into your Withholding amount in accordance with your specified method of adding funds. You authorize the cost of cards will be removed from your Withholding as payment, along with associated Buylist fees. Payment cycles for deposits occur on Monday and Thursday of each week with exceptions for holidays.

By providing a payment method, you are authorizing us to debit your account for purchases or fees through the Buylist, as well as charge the account per the guidelines of the Buylist Program. Please note that the payment method you have identified must be valid. In the event of an overdraft, all fees and penalties associated with the overdraft are the responsibility of the Store.

In order to receive payments, you must open a “White Label” account provided by Dwolla, Inc. (“Dwolla”) and you must accept the Dwolla Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. Any funds held in the Dwolla account are held by Dwolla's financial institution partners as set out in the Dwolla Terms of Service. You authorize us to share your identity and account data with Dwolla for the purposes of opening and supporting your Dwolla account, and you are responsible for the accuracy and completeness of that data. You understand that you will access and manage your Dwolla account through our application, and Dwolla account notifications will be sent by us, not Dwolla. We will provide customer support for your Dwolla account activity and can be reached at sales@tcgplayer.com for any questions.

As a security measure, TCGplayer may, but is not required to, impose transaction limits on some or all Stores relating to the value of any transaction, disbursement or adjustment, the cumulative value of all transactions, disbursements or adjustments during a period of time, or the number of transactions per day or other period of time. TCGplayer will not be liable to Store: (i) if we do not proceed with a transaction, disbursement or adjustment that would exceed any limit established by us for a security reason, or (ii) if we permit a party to withdraw from a transaction because of issues involving the Account.

If TCGplayer reasonably concludes based on information available to us that Store's actions and/or performance in connection with the Site may result in disputes, chargebacks or other claims, then we may, at our sole discretion, delay initiating any remittances and withhold any payments to be made or that are otherwise due to you in connection with this marketplace agreement for the shorter of: (a) a period of 90 days following the initial date of suspension, or (b) completion of any investigation(s) regarding any store actions and/or performance in connection with this Buylist agreement. We will not be liable to Store if we act in accordance with the provisions of this Section.


TAXES

It is the Store’s responsibility to collect and remit any taxes associated with a transaction. TCGplayer is not responsible for determining when tax should be remitted.


STORE BUYLIST FEES

For all Buylist purchases, TCGplayer charges a fee based on a percentage of the sale price. This fee will automatically be taken from a Store's Withholding.

By creating a Buylist Pricing List, you agree to pay the applicable fees and any collection costs related to non-payment of fees.

TCGplayer reserves the right to monitor user accounts to determine if policies or laws are being broken. TCGplayer reserves the right to remove or edit any content supplied by users. Any illegal or fraudulent activity may be reported to law enforcement or other third parties. Upon termination, a Store must pay TCGplayer any fees that were incurred prior to the effective date of termination, and any pending transactions will be canceled.

TCGplayer reserves the right, upon termination, to offset against any payments to be made to a Store, an amount determined by TCGplayer to be adequate to cover chargebacks, refunds, adjustments or other amounts paid in connection with the Buylist from store's account for a prospective three-month period. At the end of such three-month period following termination, TCGplayer will disburse to store any amount not used to offset chargebacks, refunds, adjustments or such other amounts, or seek reimbursement from Store via any of the means authorized in this Buylist agreement for any additional amount required to offset chargebacks, refunds, adjustments or other amounts paid, as applicable.
