4. Operation of the Site
The Site provides a marketplace for persons seeking to purchase items online (“Buyers”) to purchase items for sale from merchants on the Site(“Sellers”). The role of World’s Best is expressly limited to making the Site available to Buyers and Sellers and to maintaining the Site. In this capacity, World’s Best is strictly an intermediary between the Buyers and Sellers and is not an agent for either the Buyer or Seller for any purpose except to facilitate the processing of the purchase order and Buyer’s payment. In so doing, World’s Best accepts responsibility for the safe processing of the Buyer’s payment through the Site. However, World’s Best does not accept and specifically disclaims any responsibility or liability of any kind for any actions of either the Buyer or Seller, including but not limited to, any negligence, misconduct or other inappropriate, unlawful or unprofessional conduct by the Seller in connection with any sales transaction entered into on or through the Site. Prospective Buyers understand and acknowledge that most of the items displayed on the Site are unique and are concurrently being offered for sale in a physical store location or on other websites. Consequently, it is possible that an item ordered by a Buyer on the Site may no longer be available for sale. World’s Best assumes no responsibility or liability for the unavailability of any items displayed on the Site.
5. Purchase Orders
The Buyer may make an offer to purchase an Item directly by completing the Site’s checkout process or by contacting World’s Best through any method listed on the Site. At that time the Buyer shall submit valid payment information to World’s Best for payment of the Total Purchase Amount including valid credit card and billing address information. For items that require full or partial payment by bank wire, the Buyer will be informed of such requirements in advance of checkout and the making of an offer by the Buyer through checkout or by other means shall constitute acceptance of the required method of payment. The "Total Purchase Amount" is the price agreed to on the Site between Buyer and Seller and includes (i) the agreed price of the Item (the "Purchase Price"); (ii) if applicable, shipping fees; and (iii) sales tax, use tax, VAT, Internet sales tax and/or any other taxes or levies that the Seller is required to collect from the Buyer under applicable law at the time of sale. In the event that all or part of the Total Purchase Amount is required to be made by bank wire, the Buyer’s offer constitutes his/her agreement to complete the bank wire payment within a maximum of two (2) business days following issuance of a Confirmation of Sale.
6. Confirmation of Sale
By making an offer to purchase through the checkout process or by communicating a separate offer to purchase an item on terms proposed by the Buyer, the Buyer irrevocably agrees to pay the Total Purchase Amount and the Seller agrees to sell the Item for the Total Purchase Amount upon issuance to Buyer of a Confirmation of Sale. The Seller’s acceptance of the offer will be communicated by World’s Best to the Buyer in a Confirmation of Sale. A Confirmation of Sale may be made through any form of communication, including through a message sent on the Site, by email to the registered email address, by telephonic notice, or other means, and may be in various forms or terminology indicating that the Buyer’s purchase is being confirmed and that payment in full by the Buyer has been processed or that Buyer is now required to send payment due in accordance with instructions. The Buyer irrevocably authorizes World’s Best to charge the Buyer’s credit card or to issue an invoice for payment by any alternative payment methods required upon issuance of a Confirmation of Sale.
7. No Cancellation or Revocation
An offer may not be canceled or revoked by the Buyer unless the offer was made at a time prior to issuance of a Confirmation of Sale such as prior to confirmation of the availability of the item being purchased, the acceptance by the Seller of the Buyer’s offer price or determination of the cost of shipping if not previously established and presented to the Buyer (and subject to any statutory rights a Buyer may have). The issuance of a Confirmation of Sale constitutes acceptance of the Buyer’s offer and a binding contract between the Buyer and Seller for the purchase and sale of the item. Neither World’s Best nor any Seller shall be liable for failure to confirm a Buyer’s offer for any reason, including but not limited to, the item is no longer available for sale, the price has changed, the item has been lost, damaged or stolen, there is a mistake in the description or price of the item, or any other reason. In such cases, the Buyer’s offer shall be deemed to have not been accepted by the Seller.
Once a Confirmation of Sale has been issued to the Buyer, a purchase order may not be canceled or revoked by the Buyer. All purchases are subject to any applicable returns policies in effect by the Seller at the time of purchase. World’s Best is not responsible for the administration of the Seller’s return policies, the shipping of goods to Buyers or the return of any goods to Sellers, all such matters being the responsibility of the Buyer and Seller respectively. Once a Confirmation of Sale has been issued to the Buyer, World’s Best has completed its service and has earned its service fee for the transaction. World’s Best shall have no further responsibility to the Buyer.
From time to time, World’s Best and/or Sellers may make various offers, promotions, discounts or other benefits available in connection with certain items for sale on the Site or to certain World’s Best account members. World’s Best and/or the Sellers retain the right, in their sole and absolute discretion, to determine the terms and conditions of all such offers or promotions, including but not limited to, the amount, duration, terms or limitations of such offers or promotions and the eligibility of any items or members for such offers or promotions (subject only to state, local and federal law). World’s Best and/or Sellers reserve the right to implement, amend or revoke any such offers or promotions without notice unless a Confirmation of Sale has previously been issued for an item for which such offer or promotion was then in effect. Offers or promotions may be applicable to some but not all World’s Best members at various times as determined by World’s Best and/or the Sellers, including but not limited to, promotions to reward prior purchases, promotions for first-time buyers and promotions for certain types or categories of merchandise or price points.
9. Credit Card Authorization
Buyer irrevocably authorizes World’s Best (i) to use the credit card information provided to World’s Best by the Buyer and (ii) upon confirmation of a sale, to charge to Buyer’s credit card the full amount of the purchase price, shipping charges, taxes and other charges associated with Buyer’s purchase. If, for any reason, Buyer cancels a payment made by credit card or by any other means fails to pay the total amount due for the item purchased without first receiving authorization from World’s Best, Buyer shall be liable for payment of the total amount due plus any additional costs incurred in collection, shipment, processing costs or other costs associated with Buyer’s order.
10. Taxes and Import/Export Duties
Buyer is solely responsible for paying all sales and use taxes, export and/or import taxes and duties, VAT and any other taxes or levies related to the purchase of each item on the Site. To facilitate transactions, World’s Best may collect applicable sales taxes from Buyer on purchases within the United States but the failure of World’s Best or the Seller to collect any taxes, duties or levies does not relieve the Buyer of sole responsibility to pay them in accordance with applicable laws. Any sales tax collected by World’s Best will be remitted to the Seller for reporting and payment to the appropriate taxing authority. It is the responsibility of the Buyer and Seller to determine, pay and report to the appropriate taxing authorities the correct amount of all taxes, duties or levies due on the sale of any items on the Site.
11. Independent Sellers
World’s Best relies upon a network of independent Sellers who sell items on the Site and who are solely responsible for shipping those items directly to the Buyers. These Sellers are independent, third-party merchants who are solely responsible for the content of all product displays, photos, images, logos, descriptions and pricing of goods sold through the Site. Without limitation, World’s Best is not liable for any infringement of copyrights, trademarks, trade dress or other proprietary or intellectual property rights arising out of content posted on or transmitted through the Site, or items advertised on the Site, by such independent Sellers, even if appearing on the Site or in emails from us.
