If the seller’s account is not paid in full and becomes past due, the seller risks penalties such as the suspension of privileges and/or termination of the account and other collection mechanisms (including retaining collection agencies and legal counsel or charging any payment method associated with your account).
Listing and Selling
You may list and sell new and gently used fashion and accessories (such as clothing, shoes, handbags, and jewelry) new and unopened beauty products, formal items and services applicable to the performing arts on the Website or on our mobile applications. You may not list or sell designer replicas or derivatives, including but not limited to items that are counterfeit, inauthentic, or not manufactured for retail sale by the designer whose name, logo, trademark, or design is represented in or on the item.
By listing an item for sale on the Website, you warrant and represent that (a) you are in compliance with all aspects of this Agreement, including in respect of all items); (b) you have the legal right to sell the item and to post all of the descriptions, graphics, photos, images and any other content related to your listing of the item; (c) the description and depiction of the item, including any damage, is complete, truthful, and accurate; and (d) the item is listed in the appropriate category.

In addition, certain items may be prohibited or restricted; you also need to make sure the sale of your item complies with all laws. If your listing does not comply, it will be removed.

The seller is obligated to ship the order to complete the transaction with the buyer in a prompt manner, unless there is an exceptional circumstance. The buyer is obligated to deliver the appropriate payment for items purchased, unless there is an exceptional circumstance.

The price stated in each item listing description must be an accurate representation of the selling price. Sellers may not alter the item’s price after a sale for the purpose of avoiding Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com) transaction fees, misrepresent the item’s location, or use another user’s account without permission.
Offers to buy or sell outside of the Website are a potential fraud risk for both buyers and sellers and are not protected by the Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com) Trust Promise, the Agreement, or other buyer/seller protection programs. Additionally, these offers may be an attempt to avoid Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com) transaction fees. This is unfair to other sellers, violates the Agreement, and will result in account termination and may proceed with forcible legal action.

You may not manipulate the price of any item or fees owed to Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com) when using the Website or any Services. Even if users meet in person the transaction must occur on Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com). Failure to comply, may result in legal consequences.

The shipping rates are set but can be manually modified prior to purchases from US $8, CANADA $15, UK/EU $20. Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com) requires “Delivery with Signature Required” for any packages of items valued at $500 USD or more. Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com) is not responsible for items arriving in a timely manner. It is the buyer/seller/renter responsibility to accurately communicate and negotiate all deadlines and time constraints.

When purchasing an item, you agree that: (a) you are responsible for reading the full item listing before committing to purchase; (b) you enter into a legally binding contract with the seller to purchase his or her items when you commit to purchase the item; and (c) Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com) is not a party to the contract and does not transfer legal ownership of the item from seller to you (unless you have purchased an item from one of Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com)’s in-house accounts).

Disputes with Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com)
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND HOW CLAIMS THAT YOU AND Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com) HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED.
This Section is deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com) agree that we intend that this Section satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. This Section can only be amended by mutual agreement.
(a) Single Arbitrator. The Arbitration shall be conducted before a single arbitrator selected in accordance with the Applicable Rules or by mutual agreement between you and Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com) (the “Arbitrator”);
(c) Location of Arbitration. The Arbitration shall be held either: (i) at a location determined by JAMS (or, if applicable, AAA) pursuant to the Applicable Rules (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for you and does not require travel in excess of 100 miles from your home or place of business); or (ii) at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com); or (iii) at your election, if the only claims in the arbitration are asserted by you and are for less than $10,000 in aggregate, by telephone or by written submission.
(d) Governing Law. The Arbitrator (i) shall apply internal laws of the State of Nevada consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, or, to the extent (if any) that federal law prevails, shall apply the law of the U.S., irrespective of any conflict of law principles; (ii) shall entertain any motion to dismiss, motion to strike, motion for judgment on the pleadings, motion for complete or partial summary judgment, motion for summary adjudication, or any other dispositive motion consistent with Nevada or federal rules of procedure, as applicable; (iii) shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; and (iv) shall have authority to award any form of legal or equitable relief;
(e) No Class Relief. The Arbitration can resolve only your and/or Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com)’s individual claims, and the Arbitrator shall have no authority to entertain or arbitrate any claims on a class or representative basis, or to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated;
(f) Written Award. The Arbitrator shall issue a written award supported by a statement of decision setting forth the Arbitrator’s complete determination of the dispute and the factual findings and legal conclusions relevant to it (an “Award”). Judgment upon the Award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof or having jurisdiction over the relevant party or its assets;
(g) Arbitration Costs. In the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of Arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com) will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the Arbitration as the Arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive, regardless of the outcome of the Arbitration, unless the Arbitrator determines that your claim(s) were frivolous or asserted in bad faith;
(h) Reasonable Attorney’s Fees. In the event you recover an Award greater than Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com)’s last written settlement offer, the Arbitrator shall also have the right to include in the Award Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com)’s reimbursement of your reasonable and actual out-of-pocket attorneys’ fees associated with the Arbitration, but Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com) shall in all events bear its own attorneys’ fees; and
(i) Interpretation and Enforcement of Arbitration Clause. With the exception of subpart (e) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Applicable Rules, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (e) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com) shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute, and must instead bring any claims in a court of competent jurisdiction.
(j) Modification of Arbitration Clause With Notice. Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com) may modify these arbitration provisions, but such modifications shall only become effective thirty (30) days after Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com) has given notice of such modifications and only on a prospective basis for claims arising from Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com) Transactions and Relationships occurring after the effective date of such notification.
(k) Small Claims Matters are Excluded. No Class Relief or Joinder of Claims. Notwithstanding the foregoing arbitration provisions, at your option, you may bring any claim you have against Shoperatic LLC (Shoperatic.com) in your local small claims court within the U.S., if your claim is within such court’s jurisdictional limit; provided that such court does not have the authority to entertain any claims on a class or representative basis, or to consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated in such proceeding.
