2. CrossPlastics.com serves only as a Venue
Although we are commonly referred to as an online Buy Sell Trade web site, it is important to realize that we are not a traditional "auctioneer." The Site acts as a venue to allow members our services to buy and sell in a variety of pricing formats, including a fixed price format commonly referred to as "Buy Now" auctions and an auction-style format commonly referred to as "online auctions" or "auctions." We are not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the items advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to pay for items. We cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction. Consequently, 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 CrossPlastics.com, under which legal ownership of an item is transferred upon physical delivery of the item to the buyer by the seller.
CrossPlastics.com is an Internet site in which registered users post ads offering merchandise which they possess and wish to sell in an open auction environment. Registered users may also bid on or buy such merchandise. At no time does CrossPlastics.com possess, hold, or offer any merchandise for sale or auction, nor are we involved in any part of the actual transaction. CrossPlastics.com serves only as a venue in which individual sellers and buyers may engage in transactions between each other. Because of our non-involvement in these transactions, it is the sole responsibility of the seller to accurately represent the quantity, quality, safety, authenticity, and availability of the items the seller has listed on the site. Further, it is the responsibility of the bidder/buyer to verify with the seller any or all information about any item listed on CrossPlastics.com, for which they intend on placing a bid, before placing such bid. CrossPlastics.com cannot be responsible for a seller’s willingness or ability to sell any item they have listed, or a Bidders willingness to follow through with a transaction for an item(s) for which they have placed a bid. We encourage open communication between buyers and sellers before and after any transaction takes place.

3. User Verification
We use many techniques to verify the accuracy of the information our users provide us when they register on the Site. However, because of difficulties involved with verification over the Internet, CrossPlastics.com is unable to guarantee that a user is who they may claim to be. If you are uncertain as to another user’s identity, we suggest that you contact them. You may also review any member’s feedback profile to see what others have said about dealing with them.

4. Disputes and Release
Because CrossPlastics.com has No involvement in transactions between users, we cannot get involved in disputes between users. You hereby release CrossPlastics.com, including all officers, employees, parent companies, contractors, suppliers, or agents from any and all liability of damages or claims resulting from such disputes.

5. Uploading Images on CrossPlastics.com
From time to time we may wish to use an image in our advertising and may select one or more of our user’s images for such purposes. You hereby agree that whilst you are a member of CrossPlastics.com we may use any and all images for the purpose of promotions or other similar non harmful activity.

6. Placing Bids
By placing a bid on an item(s) listed on CrossPlastics.com, you are stating that you have the ability and intention to purchase the item for the amount of your bid, should the auction end and you are the high bidder. In the case of a reserve auction, if your bid meets or exceeds the sellers stated reserve price, you agree to purchase the item(s) for the amount of your winning bid.
Before placing a bid in an auction, verify that you understand all terms and conditions of the sale as indicated by the seller. Placing a bid is considered a legal, binding contract in most states. If you have any questions about an item, or the seller offering the item, you should ask the seller before placing your bid.
Only in certain situations would bid withdrawal/retraction be acceptable. These situations may include:
a) The seller has made material changes to the description of the item after your bid was placed.
b) The seller has made a typographical error in the description of the item.
c) You have contacted the seller and received their express permission to withdraw your bid.

Bidders may not engage in the following activity:

a) Bidding in a manner that causes the maximum bid of other bidders to be revealed, then retract your high bid, and bid again at a lower increment above the true high bidder.
b) Placing bids for the purpose of exposing the seller’s reserve price then retract your bid and bid again later with a secondary User ID.
c) Bidding on any item that you do not have the intention or means to purchase at the close of the auction, should your high bid cause you to win the auction. You are encouraged to ask the seller of an item listed on CrossPlastics.com any questions you may have regarding the sale of or condition of the item before placing your bid.
d) By placing a bid, you further state that the purchase and/or delivery of the item does not violate any local, state or federal laws, regulations or guidelines regarding the sale or distribution of such item(s).

7. Fees and Charges
The listing fee for posting an item on CrossPlastics.com is 100% FREE. There is, however, a nominal charge for other auction posting features such as featured item listings, attention grabbers, bold listings, etc., should you wish to use them. CrossPlastics.com imposes a low Percent final value fee on all items sold. Please see Fees. This amount will be automatically debited to your account and you will be sent a monthly invoice via email showing your account status. A negative balance indicates money owed on your account. A positive balance indicates credit available to you for posting items for auction and our other services. Should this payment not be made, your account will be suspended until payment is received, and posted to your account. Payments can be made through a variety of payment options", which is our preferred method, or if you so desire, you can send a check or money order to us. Please realize however, that this method of payment may delay your ability to continue posting auctions until your payment is received, processed, and posted to your account.
Another method of paying off your account debit is by using your account credits. These credits are automatically deducted from your account balance. However, these credits have a ZERO cash value, and cannot be refunded as cash. You may also wish to make a payment ABOVE your amount owed, which you may do at any time, and the amount will show as a CREDIT amount in your account.
Please refer to our Site Fees page for additional information on our fee structure.
