International Selling Agreement
- you're listing an item for sale on an eBay site other than your eBay site of registration; and/or
- you're listing an item for sale with an international postage option (such as offering worldwide postage), which may result in your item being sold to a buyer on an eBay site other than the eBay site where you're listing your item for sale
you must agree to these additional terms and conditions.
This Agreement applies to all your active or "live" listings and all your future listings. If after accepting this Agreement, you no longer want these terms and conditions to apply, you must end your active listings, not list on an eBay site other than your eBay site of registration and not list items with international postage options.
If you have a PayPal account, this Agreement is between:
- eBay - an eBay company determined by your country of residence. For example, and as listed in the chart of eBay companies linked above, if you reside in the United States, you are contracting with eBay Inc.; and
- PayPal - specifically, the PayPal entity with which you've entered into a User Agreement to receive the PayPal Services. For example, if your PayPal account is registered in the European Union, you're contracting with PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. & Cie, S.C.A.
- If you don't have a PayPal account, then this Agreement is between you and eBay only.
POLICIES ON OTHER EBAY SITES.
If your item is sold to a buyer on an eBay site other than your eBay site of registration, you agree to be subject to that other site's policies, laws and regulations applicable to the sale and delivery of items to international buyers.
PAYMENT HOLD NOTICE: PAYPAL FUNDS FROM CERTAIN EBAY SITE SALES MAY BE UNAVAILABLE FOR A PERIOD OF TIME.
For items that you sell on certain eBay sites and for which you're paid through PayPal, you accept this paragraph as PayPal's notice and agree, that:
- If PayPal believes that there is a risk associated with you, your PayPal account, or any or all of your PayPal transactions, then pursuant to the "Payment Hold" section of your PayPal User Agreement, PayPal may hold the funds you receive into your PayPal account from each of your transactions on certain eBay sites for up to 21 days, or in some instances longer. Please refer to the "Payment Hold" section of your PayPal User Agreement for more information.
- PayPal will consider a number of factors in evaluating if there is a risk, such as if eBay considers you to be a seller who doesn't meet certain seller standards, or you're a new PayPal customer and/or eBay seller or have a limited customer/seller history with PayPal and/or eBay. You may review additional information about the circumstances under which payments won't be immediately available for items you sell, for example, on the US eBay site, on the UK eBay site and on the Canadian eBay site.
- If you use a PayPal account registered in a country outside of the European Union, you agree that the PayPal entity that operates the PayPal website where you registered your PayPal account, in its sole discretion, may place a hold on any or all payments you receive when there may be a high level of risk associated with you, your account, or your transactions, to the extent and as long as reasonably needed to protect against the risk of liability; that it may suspend, block, limit, close or cancel access to PayPal's services (such as limiting access to any of your funding sources, and your ability to send money, or make withdrawals). PayPal's determination may be based on different factors and may rely on information from its third party partners, such as eBay; that, if it places a hold on a payment, (i) the payment will show as "pending" in your account; (ii) it will provide you with notice; (iii) it will normally give you advance notice of any suspension or cancellation but may, where reasonable, (for example, if you're in breach of its user agreement or it considers it advisable for security reasons), suspend or cancel your right to use your payment instrument without prior notice to you; (iv)it will release the hold on any payment after 21 days from the date the payment was received into your account, unless you receive a dispute, claim, chargeback, or reversal or it takes another action permitted under its user agreement with you. PayPal may, in its sole discretion, release the hold earlier under certain circumstances, for example, if you have uploaded tracking information; and PayPal may continue holding the payment in your account if you receive a dispute, claim, chargeback, or reversal, until the matter is resolved pursuant to its user agreement with you.
EBAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE POLICY.
You’re subject to the eBay Money Back Guarantee policies (if any) of the eBay sites where your items are sold. Among other terms and conditions, if a transaction dispute can’t be resolved between you and the buyer and eBay resolves such dispute in favour of the buyer, you agree to reimburse eBay for any amounts refunded to your buyer. View a list of the eBay sites with eBay Money Back Guarantee policies, and the terms of those policies.
REIMBURSEMENT TO EBAY.
If eBay refunds your buyer under an eBay Money Back Guarantee policy, you need to reimburse eBay. If the buyer paid for the item with PayPal, you agree to reimburse eBay as follows:
- AUTHORISATION TO CHARGE YOUR PAYPAL ACCOUNT
You authorise eBay, or any eBay affiliate appointed by eBay, to charge your PayPal account for the full amount of any money you owe eBay under an eBay Money Back Guarantee policy (the "Authorised Amounts") on a one-time, sporadic, or recurring basis.
- YOUR INSTRUCTION TO PAYPAL
You authorise and instruct PayPal, or any PayPal affiliate, to debit your PayPal account for all and any Authorised Amounts and to pay eBay, or any eBay affiliate appointed by eBay, such Authorised Amounts. You acknowledge and agree that in all circumstances you reasonably expect that payments made pursuant to this section are variable and may be made on various dates. You further agree that PayPal isn't obliged to verify or confirm the amount that eBay presents to PayPal for the purpose of processing the payment of any Authorised Amount.
- If at any time you no longer want PayPal to debit your PayPal account for future Authorised Amounts, you must end your active listings and not list (a) additional items on an eBay site with an eBay Money Back Guarantee policy or (b) with international postage options. Alternatively, for future listings, you may withdraw this authorisation by emailing PayPalReimbursementOpt-Out-EU@ebay.com from your registered eBay email address and stating your eBay ID and intention to opt out of PayPal reimbursement. Your withdrawal will be effective within 1 business day, after which time eBay won't use your PayPal account to recover Authorised Amounts. However, as a consequence of withdrawing this authorisation, eBay may restrict your selling activity.
- If you use a PayPal account that is registered in the European Union, this payment authorisation is without prejudice to your right to cancel a recurring payment pursuant to the "Cancelling Recurring Payments" section of your PayPal User Agreement.
If your PayPal balance is insufficient or the buyer didn't pay with PayPal, you agree to allow eBay or an eBay affiliate to charge any automatic payment method (and if PayPal is your automatic payment method, any payment methods or funding sources linked to your PayPal account) you have on file for the Authorised Amount. eBay or an eBay affiliate may place the Authorised Amount on your invoice subject to your automatic payment method. You'll remain obligated to pay eBay for all unpaid amounts and eBay reserves the right to seek reimbursement through other means.
With the exception of subsections (a), (b), and (c)(ii) in the above "eBay Reimbursement" section, eBay may amend these terms at any time in accordance with your eBay User Agreements. In this case, eBay will notify you via the Messages section of My eBay or by email.
The laws applicable to this Agreement shall be the laws governing the User Agreement of your eBay site of registration, except for the above subsections (a) and (b) of "Reimbursement to eBay" section, which shall be governed by the laws that govern the PayPal User Agreement applicable to your receipt of the PayPal Services. To the extent that there is any conflict between the terms of this Agreement and your eBay User Agreement, these terms shall prevail. If you accept this Agreement, a copy of the Agreement will be sent to you via the Messages section of My eBay or email.
