The above definitions are broad guidelines. More specific condition definitions specific to the category and type of Product are included on https://www.selltrade.co.za. Condition definitions are subject to change at SellTrade’s discretion.
If you are uncertain about your Product’s condition, please seek guidance by contacting SellTrade’s customer support.
Product Valuation and Product Recycling.
All quotes will be based on SellTrade’s own determination of the Product value in reliance on the accuracy of the information you supply us. SellTrade will use its discretion to determine the Product value, weighing factors that may include the Product’s model, functionality and condition. Upon receiving a quote, you have the option to accept or reject that quote. Acceptance indicates you are willing to provide your Product to SellTrade at the quoted price.
Fitness for Sale. You must own the right, title, and interest in any Products you seek to sell or recycle to SellTrade. The Products and the sale and shipment of such items to SellTrade: (a) must comply with all applicable laws, statutes, ordinances, including without limitation all import and export laws and may not infringe on third party intellectual property rights (including copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade secrets or other proprietary rights), and ( c) shall not be counterfeit, stolen, or fraudulent.
You represent and warrant that the Products are free of any liens or encumbrances, including third-party software which may not be transferred or for which royalties are due.
By using the SellTrade Services, you agree to indemnify SellTrade from all claims or losses sustained by SellTrade as a result of any breach of this warranty.
Sending SellTrade your Product. When packaging your Product, be sure to include all materials included in your description when we calculated your quote, as well as any other elements that came with your Product.
This may include software, accessories, adapters, and manuals. Failure to add any items you told us about when the quote was calculated, or sending us a Product that does not match your original description, may impact the final value of your Product and may result in a recalculated quote.
Removing Data From Your Product. For Products involving devices that store files and personal data on hard drives, memory chips or the like, you must back up and store any data you wish to keep from your Product and remove any personal information before you send your Product to us. SellTrade’s standard practice is to remove all such data from your Product; however, SellTrade makes no guarantee that it will do so.
By sending SellTrade your Product, you agree to release us from any claim as to the Product, the data stored in such Product, or any information on any media used in conjunction with the Product and which you send to SellTrade or for such data’s security, integrity, confidentiality, disclosure or use.
SellTrade is not responsible for: (a) any loss suffered by you due to any data that is not erased from the device and transferred to a third party, or (b) any loss of data after you submitted your Product to us.
Quote Recalculation. SellTrade must receive your Product within ten (15) business days after you accept the original quote by SellTrade (the “Delivery Period”).
Packing and shipping recommendations provided to you by SellTrade should be followed to avoid possible damage to or loss of the Product in transit. SellTrade will inspect all Products that are received.
SellTrade has the option to accept or reject the Product, including without limitation, to reject any Product not conforming to the description you provided to us, any Product modified in such a way that it no longer conforms to the original factory specifications, as well as any Product that no longer complies with applicable laws or regulations (e.g., FCC rules, etc.) and/or any Product damaged or lost in transit.
SellTrade reserves the right to recalculate the original quote for the Product if: (a) the Product and/or materials are not as described, and/or (b) the Product is received by SellTrade after the Delivery Period above.
In the event SellTrade recalculates the quote, you shall have the option of accepting or rejecting the new quote.
If you accept the new quote, you will be paid in the normal course and per these service terms.
If you reject the new quote, SellTrade will return the Product to you at the address from which it was originally sent. SellTrade will give you five (5) days after SellTrade presents you with a recalculated quote to accept or reject the new quote (the “New Quote Period”).
SellTrade will also remind you of the outstanding new quote one or more times during the New Quote Period. However, if the original quote is neither affirmatively accepted nor rejected by you during the New Quote Period, SellTrade will return the Product to you at the address from which it was initially sent.
For the avoidance of doubt, your acceptance of the original quote or any new quote is final, and you may not change your mind later about accepting such quotes.
Releasing Rights to Product. Once you send SellTrade your Product, SellTrade cannot and does not guarantee that it will be able to honour any request for the return of the Product or any data or information contained in such Product. Of course, if SellTrade rejects the Product or you do not accept any new quote for the Product, the product will be sent back to the owner.
Risk-Of-Loss. You remain responsible for the risk-of-loss for the Products until delivery of the same to SellTrade. You are liable for any damages that may occur to your Product while in transit. SellTrade is responsible for risk-of-loss when it opens the packaging containing your Product and ceases in the event SellTrade returns your product to you for any reason. For the avoidance of doubt, in such an event, the risk of loss will be transferred to you once SellTrade delivers the package to the carrier for return to you and you will bear the risk of damage or loss in transit.
Passing of Title:
Title to the applicable Product passes to SellTrade upon SellTrade’s acceptance of the Product for the original quote or the new quote, as appropriate. If there is a Return Circumstance, the title shall not pass and shall remain with you.
Any quote by SellTrade for your Product is non-transferable and not redeemable for any other consideration other than what is quoted by SellTrade.
The accuracy of all information.
SellTrade makes every effort to ensure the accuracy of all information you receive concerning your Product. From time to time, however, there may be typographical errors, technical inaccuracies, pricing or other errors or omissions. As such, SellTrade reserves the right, at any time before payment, to:
(a) Correct an error.
(b) Change the quote. In the event the Product has already been sent to SellTrade, the changed quote will become a New Quote subject to the processes outlined in Section 9. Otherwise, the modified quote will be a re-issued original quote, which you may accept or reject.
(c) Void a transaction. If the Product was already sent to SellTrade, SellTrade will be deemed to have rejected the Product resulting in a Return Circumstance subject to Section 10.
Privacy. We view the protection of users’ privacy as a very important community principle.
If you object to your information being transferred or used in this way, please do not use our services.
You are responsible for obtaining at your own expense all equipment and services needed to access and use the SellTrade Websites and the SellTrade Services, including all devices, Internet browsers and Internet access.
