Effective Date: July 1, 2013

The following additional Global Postage Programme Buyer Terms and Conditions ("Terms") apply to your purchase of items on eBay.co.uk through the Global Postage Programme ("Programme"):

  1. Nature of the Programme. Your seller ("Seller") has chosen to make certain items, which your Seller has listed on eBay.com, available for delivery to the United Kingdom (among other locations outside of the United States) through the Programme ("GSP Item(s)"), along with certain parcel processing, domestic and international shipping, and customs clearance services (collectively, the "Services") that are being offered to you by a third party global technology and shipping provider, Pitney Bowes Inc. ("Pitney Bowes"). The pricing that is displayed to you at checkout is inclusive of all shipping and import charges associated with these Services, as described further below.
    1. Description of the Services. By purchasing a GSP Item from your Seller, you will be entering into a binding contract with your Seller for the purchase of the GSP Item. You will also be entering into an agreement directly with Pitney Bowes on the terms set forth in these Terms for the provision of the following Services in connection with your order:
      1. Parcel processing service. Your Seller shall, upon receipt of your cleared payment, ship the GSP Item to a parcel processing facility located in the United States ("U.S. Shipping Center"), which is managed by Pitney Bowes and operated by a third party logistics provider. Pitney Bowes will oversee the sorting and processing of the GSP Item at the U.S. Shipping Center in preparation for international shipment.
      2. International shipping and tracking service. Pitney Bowes will arrange for the international shipment of your order from the U.S. Shipping Center by a third party shipping carrier (or carriers) to the delivery address designated by you. You and your Seller will be able to track the international shipment of your order from the United States to the designated delivery address within My eBay.
      3. Customs service. Based on information provided by your Seller and obtained during the processing of your order, Pitney Bowes will manage the exportation and, through third party customs brokers, the importation clearance of GSP Items that you have purchased including, as applicable, remitting your payment of import charges to applicable customs and tax authorities, preparing required documentation, making necessary filings, and providing customs authorities with information needed to clear the shipment through customs.
    2. Roles of the Parties.
      1. Pitney Bowes. Headquartered at 1 Elmcroft Road, Stamford, CT 06926 and publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol PBI, Pitney Bowes is a global technology and shipping provider. The Services described above will be provided either by Pitney Bowes itself, its affiliates, or via third party logistics providers, shipping carriers, customs brokers, freight forwarders, and/or other subcontractors under contract with Pitney Bowes. Your relationship with Pitney Bowes is governed by these Terms.
      2. Your Role as Importer of Record; Power of Attorney. You hereby agree that Pitney Bowes will designate you (or the recipient of the GSP Item that you purchase, if someone other than yourself) as the "Importer of Record" of the GSP Item or, at its discretion, will designate one of its service providers as the "Importer of Record" to facilitate the customs clearance of the GSP Item. You are responsible to: (A) ensure that your purchase and importation of the GSP Item complies with all laws and regulations of the country into which the GSP Item is being imported, (B) file a completed customs entry and related documents with the customs authorities of the country into which the GSP Item is being imported, and (C) pay the assessed import duties and other taxes due upon importation of the GSP Item. However, to the extent applicable, you hereby grant to Pitney Bowes (and, to the extent necessary, its third party service providers) a "Power of Attorney" authorizing Pitney Bowes and/or its service providers to act as your agent(s) to retain customs brokers and/or freight forwarders for the purpose of transacting customs business with all relevant customs and revenue authorities on your behalf, including, but not limited to, arranging for the importation of the GSP Item, assigning Harmonized System classification codes to each commodity, accounting for duties and taxes on your behalf, and managing any dispute with such authorities regarding customs classifications, applicable duties and/or taxes. In addition, you agree to authorize the customs brokers and/or freight forwarders selected by Pitney Bowes to make, endorse, sign, declare and/or swear to any customs, entry, withdrawal, declaration, certificate, bill of lading and/or any other documents required by law or regulation in connection with the importation and/or transportation of the GSP Item that is shipped or consigned to you or your designee for shipment out of the United States and into any other country. You acknowledge and agree that assigning Harmonized System classification codes requires expertise and that you will defer to the expertise of Pitney Bowes in performing this task and will not question the Harmonized System classification codes so assigned by Pitney Bowes.
      3. Your Seller's Role as Exporter of Record. Pitney Bowes will designate your Seller as the U.S. Principal Party in Interest ("Exporter of Record") of the GSP Item that you purchase or, at its discretion, will designate itself or one of its service providers as the "Exporter of Record" in lieu of your Seller to facilitate the customs clearance of the GSP Item. To the extent applicable, your Seller has granted to Pitney Bowes (and, to the extent necessary, its third party service providers) a power of attorney authorizing Pitney Bowes and/or its service providers to act as your Seller's agent(s) to retain customs brokers and/or freight forwarders for the purpose of transacting customs business with all relevant customs and revenue authorities on behalf of your Seller, including, but not limited to, making export classifications and managing any dispute with such authorities regarding customs classifications, applicable duties, and/or taxes, and performing any other act that may be required by law or regulation in connection with the exportation and/or transportation of GSP Items out of the United States and into any other country.
      4. Relationship between eBay and Pitney Bowes. eBay Inc. and Pitney Bowes are independent contractors and have entered into an agreement with one another in order to make the above-described Services available to you in connection with your use of the eBay.co.uk website. However, neither eBay Inc. nor its subsidiaries (collectively, "eBay") are providing any of the Services, and Pitney Bowes is neither owned by, nor affiliated with, eBay.
    3. Data Privacy. eBay's collection of personal information in connection with the Programme is governed by the privacy policy that applies to your use of the eBay.co.uk website. However, in order for Pitney Bowes to provide you with the Services that you are requesting under the Programme, Pitney Bowes requires the following personal information in addition to your order information: your name, user ID, address, email address, and telephone number. By these Terms, you direct eBay to provide this personal and order information to Pitney Bowes on your behalf so that Pitney Bowes may provide you with the Services that you are requesting under the Programme. You acknowledge that Pitney Bowes may, in turn, disclose this information to its affiliates, service providers, and customs and revenue authorities as necessary to perform the Services that you have requested (for example, providing your name and address information to shipping carriers so that they can deliver your order to the delivery address designated by you). Your personal and order information will be collected, used, and disclosed by Pitney Bowes only for the purpose of providing the Services in accordance with Pitney Bowes's privacy policy, which may be found here, with the exception that Pitney Bowes shall not provide, rent, sell or otherwise share the foregoing information for marketing purposes. eBay does not control the privacy policies of Pitney Bowes, its affiliates, or its service providers, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those parties, as applicable.
    4. Optional Services. The Services being offered to you by Pitney Bowes under the Programme are entirely optional. However, to purchase GSP Items, you must agree to these Terms. If you do not agree with these Terms, then you cannot proceed with the purchase of GSP Items and may instead purchase an item from a Seller who is not participating in the Programme.
  2. Your Use of the Programme. You will use the Programme in compliance with these Terms, eBay's policies, and all applicable laws, including, but not limited to, the following requirements and limitations:
    1. Applicability of eBay User Agreement. The Programme is designed to be used in conjunction with the eBay.co.uk website and is therefore subject to the eBay.co.uk User Agreement and policies (collectively, and as the same may be amended from time to time, "eBay's policies"). These Terms apply to you in addition to the eBay.co.uk User Agreement. In relation to your purchase of a GSP Item through the Programme, where there is any conflict or inconsistency between these Terms and any other agreement or policy between you and eBay, these Terms will control as to all matters that are explicitly addressed in these Terms. For all matters not explicitly discussed in these Terms, eBay's policies will control.
    2. Item Eligibility. Not all listings appearing on eBay.co.uk are eligible for the Programme. Items that are being offered to you by your Seller through the Programme, and which appear to be eligible for the Programme based on their listing description, are so designated within the GSP Item listing. eBay reserves the right at any time, in its sole discretion, with or without notice to you, to alter or amend the eligibility requirements for items under the Programme, including, but not limited to, limits on the number, type, category, and/or value of items and/or transactions. Item eligibility requirements include, but are not limited to, the following:
      1. Item Location. Only items physically located in the United States and which your Seller ships to the U.S. Shipping Center from a United States address are eligible for the Programme.

    5. Compliance with Applicable Laws. You agree not to purchase or import any GSP Items through the Programme in violation of any applicable laws or regulations. Without limiting the foregoing, by purchasing a GSP Item, you are representing and warranting that your possession, use, and purchase of the GSP Item or that of your designee does not violate any laws of the country into which the GSP Item is being imported.

However, any Program discontinuation will not affect the fulfillment of undelivered orders for which you have already made payment.
  3. Payment and Programme Fees.
    1. Payment Method. Your Seller requires payment for GSP Items using PayPal, and you therefore agree to pay for GSP Items and applicable Programme Fees using PayPal , as described below.

      1. "International priority shipping" (or "Shipping"): this Programme Fee consists of charges associated with the parcel processing and shipping services described above and is comprised of the following variable amounts: your Seller's shipping charges to ship your order to the U.S. Shipping Center; third party international shipping charges to ship your order from the U.S. Shipping Center to your designated delivery address; fuel surcharges; charges for selling, general, and administrative expenses, hardware, software development and licenses, operations, and hosting by Pitney Bowes; charges from third party parcel processing service providers and for the management of the parcel processing service providers and related software systems; charges relating to the management of insurance for lost or damaged items; charges for operational expenses associated with short-term loss recovery and the management of variances between the quoted Shipping amount and actual costs; and any referral fees paid by Pitney Bowes to eBay for referring you to the Programme.
      2. "Import charges": this Programme Fee consists of charges associated with the customs service described above and is comprised of the following variable amounts: sales, goods and services, and value added taxes, duties, tariffs, excise taxes, and other amounts assessed or levied by any government authority in connection with the importation of goods into the applicable country of importation (but excluding income taxes) ("Commodity taxes"); third party brokerage fees (including advancement and disbursement charges and customs brokers handling and filing fees); penalties (but excluding any customs duties, taxes, surcharges, fines, penalties, or other charges which may be imposed on you by customs or tax officials after a GSP Item has successfully cleared customs and been delivered to, or made available for pickup at, the delivery address that you specify); classification charges associated with the assignment of a Harmonized System ("HS") classification code; charges for export compliance screening and verification and the assignment of an Export Control Classification Number (ECCN); and operational expenses associated with short-term loss recovery and the management of variances between the quoted Import charges and actual costs.

    3. Payment Split. PayPal will split your payment of the Programme Fees between your Seller and Pitney Bowes in the following manner, as reflected within your Order Details page and, if you have a PayPal account, in your PayPal account overview:
      1. Payment to your Seller: PayPal will transmit to your Seller's PayPal account that portion of your payment consisting of the GSP Item price and the amount (if any) charged by your Seller to ship the GSP Item to the U.S. Shipping Center.
      2. Payment to Pitney Bowes: PayPal will transmit the balance of your payment to Pitney Bowes's PayPal account (identifiable with the description "Pitney Bowes Inc.").
    4. Programme Fee Estimates. The Programme Fees quoted in your Seller's listing are estimates only and are subject to change until you pay for the GSP Item and the quoted Programme Fees in full during checkout. With the exception of the shipping charges specified by your Seller to ship your order to the U.S. Shipping Center, the quoted Programme Fees are derived from real-time, proprietary estimates of applicable international shipping and import charges by Pitney Bowes. Pitney Bowes's estimates may not always reflect actual costs to Pitney Bowes; actual shipping and/or import costs may be more or less than the estimates. However, subject to your compliance with these Terms, your payment of the GSP Item price and quoted Programme Fees during checkout represents the total amount of Shipping and Import charges for a GSP Item to be purchased, shipped to the delivery address specified by you, cleared by customs, and delivered to (or made available for pickup at) the delivery address that you specify. You will not request, and you will not receive, a refund for the difference, if any, between Programme Fees paid by you and actual costs to Pitney Bowes in the event that actual shipping and/or import costs are less than the amounts paid by you.
    5. Remittance of Programme Fees to Third Parties. Upon receipt of your payment of the Programme Fees, Pitney Bowes shall be responsible for paying its service providers for fees owed to its service providers and for remitting Commodity taxes to governmental authorities, as applicable.
    6. Payment Reversals. If eBay, Pitney Bowes, or Pitney Bowes's service providers determine, after you have purchased a GSP Item, that the GSP Item is ineligible for the Programme or cannot be shipped to you (for whatever reason), eBay and its affiliates shall have the right to cancel your purchase in lieu of proceeding with the processing and/or shipment of the GSP Item and, upon exercising this right, shall reverse the PayPal payment that you made to your Seller and to Pitney Bowes for the GSP Item and will process the GSP Item as an undeliverable item, as described below.
    7. Currency Conversion. Unless stated otherwise, all Programme Fees are quoted in U.S. dollars.
    8. Unpaid Items and Payment Failure. Your purchases of GSP Items under the Programme are subject to eBay's unpaid item policy. eBay reserves the right to collect, using any collection methods at its disposal, any unpaid amounts that eBay pays to your Seller and/or Pitney Bowes because of your non-payment or failed payment.
    9. Exclusions. You alone are responsible for any customs duties, taxes, surcharges, fines, penalties, or other charges which may be imposed on you by customs or tax officials after a GSP Item has successfully cleared customs and been delivered to (or made available for pickup at) the delivery address specified by you.
  4. Lost, Damaged, or Undeliverable Items. If a GSP Item that you purchase is not delivered to the delivery address specified by you, it is damaged, or it does not match your Seller's description, your purchase may be covered by an eBay Money Back Guarantee or PayPal Purchase Protection policy, as described below.
    1. eBay Money Back Guarantee. Your purchases of GSP Items on eBay.co.uk are covered by eBay.co.uk's eBay Money Back Guarantee policy if your purchases otherwise meet the policy's eligibility requirements and conditions and do not fall within an exclusion or coverage limitation. eBay.co.uk's eBay Money Back Guarantee policy may be different from the eBay Money Back Guarantee policy (if any) on your own eBay site of registration. If you are eligible for eBay Money Back Guarantee and eBay finds in your favor in a case stemming from your purchase of a GSP Item under the Programme, the applicable coverage amount will include the Programme Fees that you paid for the GSP Item.
    2. PayPal Purchase Protection. Your purchases of GSP Items using PayPal are covered by the PayPal Purchase Protection policy applicable to your use of the PayPal services if your purchases otherwise meet the policy's eligibility requirements and conditions and do not fall within an exclusion or coverage limitation. The PayPal Purchase Protection policy applicable to your purchase can be found in the PayPal User Agreement and is governed by the applicable PayPal User Agreement's terms. If you are eligible for PayPal Purchase Protection and PayPal finds in your favor on a claim stemming from your purchase of a GSP Item under the Programme, the applicable coverage amount will include the Programme Fees that you paid for the GSP Item.
    3. Risk of Loss. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, as between you and your Seller, the risk of loss or damage to a GSP Item shall remain with your Seller until the GSP Item is accepted at the U.S. Shipping Center. As between you and Pitney Bowes, risk of loss or damage to a GSP Item shall transfer to you from Pitney Bowes and/or its third party parcel processing service providers when the GSP Item leaves the U.S. Shipping Center. However, your purchase may be covered by the eBay Money Back Guarantee policy and the PayPal Purchase Protection policy.
    4. Undeliverable Items -- Valid Delivery Address Required. The delivery address that you specify must be within a country eligible under the Programme and must be a valid and complete delivery address. The delivery address that you specify may not be a Post Office (P.O. Box), Army Post Office, or Fleet Post Office. eBay and Pitney Bowes shall have no liability and shall have, in their discretion and in any manner that they prefer, the right to dispose of or liquidate parcels (and their contents) that eBay or Pitney Bowes conclude are undeliverable, for whatever reason. If eBay or Pitney Bowes conclude that a parcel is undeliverable and elect to dispose of or liquidate a parcel, title to the parcel (and its contents) shall transfer automatically from your Seller to eBay, Pitney Bowes and/or any third party designated by either eBay or Pitney Bowes (as eBay and Pitney Bowes may elect), at no cost to either eBay or Pitney Bowes (or to any third party designated by eBay or Pitney Bowes), and eBay and Pitney Bowes (and any third party designated by eBay or Pitney Bowes) shall retain all proceeds (if any) received from the disposal or liquidation of the parcel and/or its contents). eBay or Pitney Bowes may also elect to return to your Seller any parcels that eBay or Pitney Bowes conclude are undeliverable. eBay shall not be responsible under either the eBay Money Back Guarantee or PayPal Purchase Protection policies if eBay concludes that a GSP Item is not deliverable to your designated delivery address for any reason, including because the delivery address that you provide is incorrect, incomplete, or inaccessible. In addition, certain third party shipping carriers utilized under the Programme may require that the designated recipient of a GSP Item be present to receive delivery; where in-person delivery is required, you shall be solely responsible for ensuring that the designated recipient is available to receive delivery.
    5. Transfer of Title. Title to a GSP Item remains with your Seller until such time as the GSP Item is successfully delivered to the designated recipient of the GSP Item, at which time title to the GSP Item shall transfer to the designated recipient. At no time do eBay (or its affiliates), Pitney Bowes (or its affiliates), or the third party logistics providers, shipping carriers, customs brokers, freight forwarders, or other subcontractors under contract with Pitney Bowes take title to GSP Items, except as otherwise provided herein.
    6. International Returns. The returns policy specified by your Seller in his/her listing description of a GSP Item will apply to your purchase of the GSP Item For GSP Items that you return to your Seller, you will not be eligible for, and you will not receive, a refund of any Programme Fees that you paid to Pitney Bowes. You may have additional rights under local law.
