Where you buy any product from a Supplier (as defined below) through our site, the Supplier’s individual liability will be set out in the Supplier’s terms and conditions.
Transactions concluded through our websiteWe act as an agent for retailers, importers, manufactures and designers (each a ‘Supplier’) who are offering for sale via our site products which are discounted from their recommended retail price. Any contract for the supply of goods entered into pursuant to an offer or bid submitted by you will be between you and the Supplier who is offering the relevant product. The Supplier’s terms and conditions can be viewed on our website within the relevant product detail. You should carefully review the Supplier’s terms and conditions applying to the transaction. If you do not agree to be bound by the Supplier’s terms and conditions you should refrain from making any Bids (as defined below).
In particular, should you choose to re-sell stock before receiving it, you do so at your own risk.
By placing an offer or Bid through our site, you warrant that:
You are legally capable of entering into binding contracts;
You are a trader and/or business (whether a limited company or not) and are not a consumer; and
You have read the Supplier’s terms and conditions and agree to be bound by them.
Please note, the recommended retail price given is an estimate and may not be accurate as many of the goods sold via our site are not sold to consumers in the same form as sold via our site.
BiddingIn this clause:‘Bid(s)’ shall mean the irrevocable offer by you to purchase the goods at the Price, such an offer being made either verbally or by electronic means by email or through our site, on the condition that this Bid exceeds any reserve Price and meets any other conditions of the relevant auction or sale. For clarity this will mean the same for sales by auction as it does for immediate ‘Buy It Now’ type sales made through our site;
‘Price’ shall mean the price for the goods in pounds sterling and excluding carriage and VAT at the prevailing rate unless otherwise specified.
By placing a bid on an auction you are entering into a legal contract to buy the stock at any value, up to the maximum value of your bid. Bids are final and binding and may not be withdrawn. Failure to make payment within the specified timeframe will result in a penalty charge and may result in deactivation of your account.
The winning Bid in any auction will be the highest Bid that exceeds any reserve and meets any other conditions of the relevant auction. If a Bid you make is followed by a higher Bid by another bidder that is later removed by us for any reason, it shall be open to us to accept your earlier Bid.
Where the Supplier offers goods for sale on a ‘Buy It Now’ basis then you are able to purchase these goods at the price offered by the Supplier at that exact point in time.
Bids must be made in increments as defined by us from time to time.
We may also place Bids on your behalf at your request up to a maximum level set by you.
We reserve the right to close auctions or sales early or to extend auctions and sales at any time and at our discretion. We do not guarantee that Bids received will be processed and do not accept any liability for any direct or indirect loss so caused. Auctions or sales may also be cancelled or listings withdrawn because of technical difficulties experienced by us, our partners or agents or due to technical issues experienced on the Internet.
WinningWe shall notify a winning Bid by email to you. A shipping cost is determined and an invoice is generated and emailed to you to include this charge.
The shipping rate determined by the Supplier will be as per the shipping charges detailed on the product description relating to the goods. These charges will appear on our invoice to you.
PaymentEach auction is conducted in GBP (£) and payment can only be accepted in GBP (£).
You must make the appropriate payment to us within 6 hours of committing to buy a listing.
If payment is not received within 6 hours, the goods will be re-auctioned or otherwise disposed of by us. In this eventuality your account will be suspended indefinitely. In addition you will also be invoiced for a re-stocking fee of £10.00 + VAT per lot and be liable for any loss or consequential loss to the Supplier resulting on a re-sale of any items in question.
brands365.co.uk operates a “Make an Offer” functionality. If a buyer’s offer is accepted, the buyer has 24 hours to make the payment.
Any applicable VAT shall be applied at the prevailing rate on the date of invoice.
Title in the goods remains with (and goods remain the property of) the Supplier until full cleared funds are received.
In the event that stock you have purchased is not available from the vendor, a full refund for the purchase price will be issued. Under no circumstances will additional compensation be offered.
DispatchThe goods will be delivered to you or collected by you as set out in the Supplier’s applicable terms and conditions or as otherwise set out in the applicable product description.
Where you collect the goods it is your responsibility to ensure that you have a suitable vehicle with which to do so. You agree that you will be responsible for loading the vehicle and we or the Supplier cannot accept any liability for any damage to the goods which occurred after the goods were made available for collection. The Supplier may require you to sign an acceptance/collection document when you collect the goods. Other conditions concerning the collection or delivery of goods can be found in the product description or the Supplier’s terms and conditions.
RejectionGoods may only be rejected if they are faulty or do not match the product description given on our site. The Supplier will examine the returned goods and we will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 7 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund for the defective goods. Goods returned by you because of a defect will be refunded in full, including a refund for the delivery charges for sending the item to you (if any). However, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us. We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. Where the Supplier deems (at its sole discretion) that the goods are not faulty and/or that they did match the product description you will not be entitled to a refund and you will be required to collect the goods from the Supplier at your cost. If you fail to collect the goods within 7 days of being notified that you are not entitled to a refund, the Supplier will be entitled to dispose of the goods and the Supplier shall be entitled to charge you for the cost of such disposal.
ComplianceWe reserve the right to monitor our site and any material on it at our sole discretion to ensure that the service offered by us remains in accordance with any and all consents, authorisations, laws and governmental regulations.
We may in our absolute discretion refuse or remove Bids or remove from sale or re-offer for sale listings in respect of which there is a dispute or which fail to draw Bids above the reserve.
We are entitled, without any liability or giving any advance notice to terminate any auction or sale and/or your registration or participation in any particular auction or sale. We have no obligation to offer any of the auctions or sales to you, or at all, where it appears reasonable to us to do so.
The following safety test must be carried out on goods purchased by you from the Supplier prior to use or resale.
