If The House Of Bazaar terminates a listing or your account, if you close your account, or if the payment of your The House Of Bazaar fees cannot be completed for any reason, you remain obligated to pay The House Of Bazaar for all unpaid fees plus any interest or other charges, if applicable. If the seller's account is not paid in full and becomes past due, the seller risks penalties such as the suspension of privileges and/or termination of the account and other collection mechanisms (including retaining collection agencies and legal counsel or charging any payment method associated with your account).

You may list and sell new and gently used women's fashion and accessories (such as clothing, shoes, handbags, and jewelry) and wedding items on the Website or on our mobile applications. You may not list or sell designer replicas or derivatives, including but not limited to items that are counterfeit, inauthentic, or not manufactured for retail sale by the designer whose name, logo, trademark, or design is represented in or on the item.
By listing an item for sale on the Website or any Services, you warrant and represent that (a) you are in compliance with all aspects of this Agreement and applicable laws, including in respect of all items; (b) you have the legal right to sell the item and to post all of the descriptions, graphics, photos, images and any other content related to your listing of the item; (c) the description and depiction of the item, including but not limited to any damage, size or measurements, are complete, truthful, and accurate; (d) the item is listed in the appropriate category; (e) the item is not priced significantly over a reasonable market price; (f) a reasonable market price can be determined for custom made or non-branded items; and (g) the item does not have more wear and/or damage than can be defined as Gently Used, including but not limited to: significant wear, rips, tears, discoloration, odor or broken hardware or components. Your listings may only include text descriptions, graphics, photos, images, and other content relevant to the sale of that item. All items must be listed in an appropriate category with relevant tags. Each unique item must have its own listing. In addition, certain items may be prohibited or restricted; you also need to make sure the sale of your item complies with all laws. If your listing does not comply, it may be removed. Please note that at this time only users based in the United States are eligible to list or sell on the Website or any Services.
In addition, The House Of Bazaar reserves the right to designate certain items as Final Sale (including but not limited to clearance, wedding category, and non-women’s fashion items) where no returns are accepted for The House Of Bazaar Site Credit. The sale of any items outside of women’s fashion categories is prohibited (including but not limited to intimates, technology equipment and accessories, household goods, men’s and children’s clothing/shoes/accessories) and is not covered by our Return Policy.
All sales are binding. The seller is responsible for accurately listing their items, and the buyer is responsible for reading the item description before making a purchase. The seller is obligated to ship the order to complete the transaction with the buyer in a prompt manner, unless there is an exceptional circumstance. The buyer is obligated to deliver the appropriate payment for items purchased, unless there is an exceptional circumstance. Our Cancellation Policy is available via the following link: http://thehouseofbazaar.com/help/article/220748827/how-can-i-cancel-my-purchase.
If you do not complete a sale or purchase, your account and all listings may be suspended and removed from the Website and any Services at The House Of Bazaar’s sole discretion. You may request your account and listings be reinstated, which The House Of Bazaar may do in its sole discretion.
The price stated in each item listing description must be an accurate representation of the sale price. Sellers may not alter the item’s price after a sale for the purpose of avoiding The House Of Bazaar transaction or commission fees, misrepresent the item’s location, or use another user’s account without permission.
Offers to buy or sell outside of the Website or Services are a potential fraud risk for both buyers and sellers and are not protected by the The House Of Bazaar Trust Promise, the Agreement, or other buyer/seller protection programs. Additionally, these offers may be an attempt to avoid The House Of Bazaar transaction fees. This is unfair to other sellers, violates the Agreement, and will result in account termination. You may not exchange personal information or engage in any other activities to transact with another in any manner to avoid any transaction fee or the The House Of Bazaar Secure Checkout process. You may not manipulate the price of any item or fees owed to The House Of Bazaar when using the Website or any Services.
When you sell an item on The House Of Bazaar (except for certain categories such as wedding items), the seller has the option to receive a The House Of Bazaar shipping kit with prepaid postage and pre-addressed to the buyer in order to mail the item sold to the buyer. Seller also has the option to handle shipping on her own by adding reasonable shipping and handling fees to the sale price in order to cover the costs for packaging and mailing the item sold to the buyer. The House Of Bazaar requires “Delivery with Signature Required” for any packages of items valued at $500 USD or more.
The House Of Bazaar has engaged third-party service providers to perform many of the services related to payment processing, including card processing, currency exchange, identity verification, fraud analysis and regulatory compliance.
The House Of Bazaar has partnered with Stripe, PayPal, Affirm, and other licensed payment processors to facilitate credit card/ACH payments and the disbursement of funds to sellers. The provider and processing time for your payment may vary. If there are insufficient funds in your bank account or insufficient credit available when our provider processes the payment for your purchase or to recoup fees or balances due to The House Of Bazaar, The House Of Bazaar reserves the right to contact you directly to seek payment.
The House Of Bazaar may share your personal or transactional information with those third-party service providers when it's necessary to process payments.
Upon completing a sale, sellers will have access to the buyer’s full physical address. As a seller, you are strictly prohibited from using this personal information for anything other than completing the sale.
In order to cash out seller earnings, you are required to verify your identity. This verification helps The House Of Bazaar to maintain a safe place to buy and sell. At any time, The House Of Bazaar may require a seller to re-verify his or her identity. As part of this verification process, and as enforced by regulatory requirements relating to online payments, you will be required to provide the last four digits of your Social Security Number (SSN) or Employer Identification Number (EIN). This information is transmitted securely and will not be stored by The House Of Bazaar.
Paypal is a third-party service provided by PayPal Holdings, Inc. and is subject to the PayPal User Agreement. Apple Pay is a third-party service provided by Apple Inc. and is subject to the Apple Pay Terms and Conditions. Android Pay is a third-party service provided by Google Payment Corp. and is subject to the Android Pay Terms and Conditions.
If The House Of Bazaar receives notice that your listings or activity violates any third party service agreement, we may at our sole discretion take action against your account to comply with their policies. Such actions may include canceling a transaction, removing listings, or suspending your account.
When you return an item purchased on the Website or using our Services, The House Of Bazaar may relist and resell it on one of The House Of Bazaar’s in-house accounts, including Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields, Abbey R, Jaclyn’s Closet and Lady Madonna. In exchange for the right to resell on The House Of Bazaar’s in-house account items that the seller sells and the buyer returns to The House Of Bazaar, the seller will retain her/his earnings from the sale and the buyer will receive site credit for the item returned to The House Of Bazaar. During special promotions, some items from The House Of Bazaar's in-house accounts may be marked Final Sale or Non-returnable.
When an item purchased on the Website or using our Services is returned, it will be sent back to the Seller’s designated shipping address. However, if the shipping address listed in your account is outdated or incorrect, and you have not responded to The House Of Bazaar’s attempts to reach you via the email address listed in your account, the item will be deemed abandoned after thirty days and may be donated to a charity of The House Of Bazaar’s choice.
When purchasing an item, you agree that: (a) you are responsible for reading the full item listing before committing to purchase; (b) you enter into a legally binding contract with the seller to purchase his or her items when you commit to purchase the item; and (c) The House Of Bazaar is not a party to the contract and does not transfer legal ownership of the item from seller to you (unless you have purchased an item from one of The House Of Bazaar’s in-house accounts).

Verified Rights Owners Program (VRO): To enforce the intellectual property rights of owners, The House Of Bazaar engages in a Verified Rights Owners program that allows owners to request The House Of Bazaar to remove certain listings that offer items or contain images or other materials that infringe on their intellectual property rights. These rights can include trademark, copyright, and/or other legal rights. For example, a Verified Rights Owner may ask The House Of Bazaar to remove an item being sold that uses the rights owner's registered trademark (such as a logo on a designer handbag) if the item is not an authentic product of the rights owner. This VRO program helps protect The House Of Bazaar members from buying or selling items that may be replica or otherwise unauthorized under state and/or federal laws. Before a listing is removed, a Verified Rights Owner must provide to The House Of Bazaar information that ensures that the person or company reporting the item is authorized to do so. If a Verified Rights Owner believes a listing violates their intellectual property rights, please provide The House Of Bazaar with a written notice containing (where applicable) the following information:
Written notice should be delivered to The House Of Bazaar at:
The House Of Bazaar Inc
313 Grand Blvd, Box 840
Venice, CA 90291
If a copyright notice is received by The House Of Bazaar’s Copyright Agent, The House Of Bazaar may send a copy of the notice to the user who posted the material at issue.
If your item is reported, you may receive an email notifying you that a Verified Rights Owner participant requested your listing to be removed from the Website or Services. We require the rights owner to provide us with an email address so you can contact them directly for more information about why your listing infringes their intellectual property rights. You can find the Verified Rights Owner's email address in the email you received when your listing was removed.
At The House Of Bazaar's sole discretion, users who infringe on intellectual property rights of Verified Rights Owners will have their user accounts and/or access to the Services removed or disabled. If The House Of Bazaar disables or removes your user account, or any content or other materials you have posted, and you believe this was done in error, please forward a written notice stating the same and providing any supporting documentation necessary to establish your rights to the agent referenced above.
If you have concerns or questions about why your listing was reported or removed, please contact the VRO participant directly using the email address we provided.
You can also contact our Member Care team at firstname.lastname@example.org if the Verified Rights Owner has not replied after 10 days or if you have any other questions.
If your material has been removed, disabled, or otherwise restricted due to a copyright infringement notification, and you believe that your material is not infringing or you were authorized by the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law to post and use the material, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to The House Of Bazaar’s Agent for Infringement Claims:
If a counter-notice is received by our Copyright Agent, The House Of Bazaar may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing it that we may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in the next 30 business days at our sole discretion unless the original complaining party files an action seeking a court order against The House Of Bazaar or the applicable member/user.
