Site Communication

The Different Needz Messaging System gives you the ability to communicate with buyers/sellers directly from this site without having to open up your email client. To ensure your safety and to ensure site integrity, all communications between buyer and seller are filtered through Different Needz. All email addresses and personal information will be removed from communications and sales must go through the Different Needz website.

Sales

When a user agrees to buy an item from a seller, Different Needz will send a communication to the seller letting the seller know the item has been sold. Different Needz will then send the buyer a PayPal invoice for the purchase price. Once the buyer pays the invoice, Different Needz will notify the seller the invoice has been paid and the seller will ship the item within 24-48 hours.

Once the item has been shipped, the seller will then send the shipping number to Different Needz and the buyer will be notified. Once the buyer receives the item, the buyer has 48 hours to contact Different Needz with any issues. After 48 hours, the funds will be sent to the seller.

Site Maintenance

Different Needz wants to keep the Site working properly and safe. Please report problems and violations to us via our email at contactus@DifferentNeedz.com.

Different Needz may take whatever steps necessary, including but not limited to suspend, or terminate our service, remove content, or take legal action to assure the safety of the Site. Different Needz also reserves the right to terminate accounts that have been inactive for a period of six months.

Fees

Creating a Different Needz seller or buyer account is free. We do not charge fees for posting items. Different Needz reserves the right to change from time to time the fees for posting items for sale on the Site.

By posting an item on Different Needz, you are agreeing to and contract to pay Different Needz a sales commission fee in the amount of 17% of the sale price of your item upon the sale of your item. For example, if your item sells for $100.00 plus $25.00 shipping, you agree to pay to Different Needz the amount of $17.00 as the sales commission fee. The seller grants authority to Different Needz to subtract the sales commission prior to receiving funds. The sales commission fee is due to Different Needz upon sale of your item. Said fee is only owed if the buyer pays for your item. You can obtain a receipt of this transaction upon request. The sales commission fee is due to Different Needz if the item was returned to you for any reason other than non-payment.

You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with the Site in a timely manner with a valid payment method. If your payment method fails or your account is past due, we may collect fees and other damages, including attorney fees, owed using other collection mechanisms. All fees are quoted in U.S. Dollars.

Delivery

When an item is purchased, Different Needz will send a sale notification to the Seller's email account listed by the Seller when the Seller registered for an account with Different Needz. The Seller must send the purchased item to the Buyer within 24-48 hours after the date of the notification of the sale issued by Different Needz. It is recommended that the Seller monitor their items and email accounts for the notification of the sale of their item. It is the Seller's sole responsibility to deliver the purchased item to the Buyer. If there are any delivery issues, please contact Different Needz at contactus@DifferentNeedz.com. Different Needz will attempt to resolve any delivery issues with the Seller and Buyer, however, no resolution is guaranteed.

Return Policy

All sales are final. All sales commission fees paid are final. All disputes are between the Seller and the Buyer. Returns, for whatever reason, must be resolved with the other party. DifferentNeedz will help resolve any issue, but does not guarantee any resolution, is not a party to the dispute and does not assume any liability.

We Are Not Liable

You agree to not hold and will not hold Different Needz responsible for other user's acts and/or omissions. Different Needz is not involved in the actual transaction between Buyers and Sellers. We do not guarantee anything, including but not limited to, the quality, safety or legality of items posted, the accuracy of postings, the ability of Sellers to sell items, the ability of Buyers to pay for items, or that a Buyer or Seller will actually complete a transaction.

We do not transfer legal ownership of items from the Seller to the Buyer, and nothing in this agreement shall modify the governing provisions of the Uniform Commercial Code S 2-401(2) and/or any State equivalent of Uniform Commercial Code S 2-401(2), under which legal ownership of an item is transferred upon physical delivery of the item to the Buyer by the Seller. Unless the Buyer and the Seller agree otherwise, the Buyer will become the item's lawful owner upon physical receipt of the item from the Seller, in accordance with the Uniform Commercial Code S 2-401(2) and/or any State equivalent of Uniform Commericial Code S 2-401(2).
