General Terms and Conditions for Sellers
Owned by founder and managing director Gail Rolfe, PRELOVED PERFECTION offers the provision, marketing and sale of second hand and preloved designer fashion for private sellers, primarily via the website operated by www.prelovedperfection.com, but also via other distribution channels such as Instagram.
Here at PRELOVED PERFECTION we are committed to selling your designer items at the best possible price and in the most efficient way and in order that we can do this, we ask that you comply with the following terms and conditions. At present we only sell items through our Concierge Service, where we are responsible for professional photography, authenticity checks, all details, including descriptions, condition rating, and style tips.
PRELOVED PERFECTION accepts only authentic designer items. You, as the owner, guarantee the authenticity of all items consigned withPRELOVED PERFECTION. Any item delivered to PRELOVED PERFECTION and deemed to be counterfeit/fake by the team at PRELOVED PERFECTION or any qualified third party, will will either be destroyed or returned to the seller at the seller’s risk and expense. PRELOVED PERFECTION can make return shipment dependent on an advance payment by the seller.
Furthermore, if in PRELOVED PERFECTION's opinion, the sales item is a fake or otherwise infringing merchandise, PRELOVED PERFECTION has the right to notify the alleged rights holder and/or law enforcement agencies and disclose the seller’s identity. Furthermore, PRELOVED PERFECTION has the right to inform the buyer that the sales contract in conjunction with this sales item designated for sale cannot be concluded. The same applies in the event that the sales item was not the sole property of the seller or the seller is not acting based on an appropriate authorisation from the owner and the (co-)owner did not authorise the seller to sell the sales item. If you receive payment for an item that is later deemed to be counterfeit you agree to repay the full amount received plus any other loss associated with its sale and return.
The seller owes PRELOVED PERFECTION a commission for each brokered sales contract or for each sales contract concluded on behalf of the seller. The commission is also owed if PRELOVED PERFECTION buys a sales item from the seller itself. The amount of commission depends on the amount of the sales price and is calculated according to the commission scheme which is valid at the point in time when a seller lists an item. The current commission scheme can be found at any time on the section listed as COMMISSION RATES.
All consigned items must be delivered toPRELOVED PERFECTION in excellent condition and must be of the highest quality, (either Unused/Very Good, Good or Fair), cleaned, on hangers (if applicable), and “ready to sell.” You must disclose to PRELOVED PERFECTION, prior to our acceptance of the item, any and all flaws, damage, and/or alterations to the item, regardless of size or appearance. In cases where damage or alterations are not disclosed, PRELOVED PERFECTION reserves the right to terminate the sales agreement at any time and without notice. We do NOT accept any items that require cleaning or repair, or items with severe traces of use, stains, holes, odours or other damage.
You guarantee that you are the true and lawful owner of any, and all items, consigned to PRELOVED PERFECTION. You agree to indemnify and not hold PRELOVED PERFECTION responsible for any damages arising from any, and all, claims, demands, losses, causes of action, damage, lawsuits, judgments, including legal fees and costs, to the extent caused by or arising out of or relating to any unlawful ownership. As the owner you understand that PRELOVED PERFECTION acts only as an agent and that the title does not at any stage pass to PRELOVED PERFECTION and remains with you, the owner through out the sale procedure. You accept that PRELOVED PERFECTION is entitled to claim the agreed commission figure from the selling price.
As the seller’s representative, PRELOVED PERFECTION determines the sales price at its own discretion taking into account the brand, current market situation, condition of the item and desirability. PRELOVED PERFECTION will attempt to achieve the highest possible sales price and a quick sale. However, the seller can indicate his or her desired asking price. PRELOVED PERFECTION is obligated to not reduce the sales price by more than 10% of the seller’s agreed asking price without having consulted with the seller beforehand.
If buyer wishes to propose a lower price, this can be done by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with a suggested offer. PRELOVED PERFECTION will then approach the seller and determine if this offer is acceptable. No changes can be instigated by PRELOVED PERFECTION without the acceptance of the seller.TERMS:
