2. About Auction2u Live Marketplace.
Auction2u provides a live marketplace for buyers and sellers of certain consumer products. A description of the live marketplace process and the rules applicable to buyers and sellers is available on our FAQ page, as updated from time to time. Although the Services include buy and sell functionality: (1) Auction2u ; (2) although Auction2u might provide historical pricing data, we do not set prices for the items; and (3) Since the sellers set prices, they may be higher than retail value. Any item valuations displayed through the Services are estimates only.
Auction2u does not guarantee that any item will sell. We reserve the right to investigate complaints and violations of these Terms and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, may take any actions we deem appropriate, including suspending your account and charging you for costs we incur as a result of the violation. Although the Services are anonymous and we generally do not share your information with other buyers and sellers, we may share your information with law enforcement and other third parties as part of an investigation related to any alleged violation of law or these Terms, and we may respond to all inquiries initiated by law enforcement or other governmental agencies. The Services are accessible to certain international sellers and buyers. Auction2u may provide access to certain features and tools to international sellers and buyers, such as estimated local currency conversion and integrated international shipping, customs and tax tools. Sellers and buyers are responsible for complying with all laws and regulations applicable to the international sale, purchase, and shipment of items.
3. Accounts, Passwords, and Security.
To make a bid, you must create an account using an email address and password. To offer items for sale (“Offer”) or offer to purchase items (“Bid”), you must create an account and have a valid payment method on record with us, such as a valid credit card, valid debit card, or My Credits. You agree that we may charge your credit card or other payment method for amounts you owe as described in these terms, as well as any costs or losses arising from your violation of the Terms. When you register to create an account with us, you agree to provide accurate information about yourself and must not register under a false name or age or use an unauthorised payment method. If you use any Service, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. You agree to notify Auction2u immediately upon learning of any unauthorised use of your account or password, or any other unauthorised access or breach of security. However, you may be held liable for losses incurred by Auction2u or any other person or entity due to another person using your account or password. You may not use any other user’s account or password at any time without the express permission and consent of the holder of that account or password. You may not transfer or assign your account. Please review our other policies posted on this site which are part of the Terms and govern your use of the Services. We reserve the right to make changes to our site, policies, and the Terms at any time. Auction2u cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with these obligations. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your account in the event that you breach any of these Terms.
4. Fees, Promotional/Discount Codes and Taxes.
Fees for the Services, including applicable shipping fees, are described in our FAQ, as updated from time to time. Auction2u may sometimes furnish an alphanumeric code that can be used for promotions or discounts for purchases on our sites. These promotional or discount codes may be sent via email to our registered users, presented on our web sites or circulated at events and through other means and, unless otherwise provided are subject to the promotional or discount terms available here Discount Policy.
5. Authentication; Shipping and Handling.
As part of the purchase transaction, the seller will ship the item to Auction2u and Auction2u will visually inspect the item and use commercially reasonable efforts to confirm it is authentic. If Auction2u determines the item is authentic, Auction2u will ship the item to the buyer. If Auction2u cannot reasonably confirm the authenticity of the item or determines it is not authentic, then we will notify the buyer and the seller that the item is not authentic and will issue a refund to the buyer. Additionally, Auction2u has the right to reject any item for any reason, including but not limited to, authenticity or damage of the item. Auction2u policy requires sellers to ship items within the specified timeframe provided in the sale confirmation email after purchase. However, because Auction2u cannot control the amount of time it takes for the item to reach Auction2u, we cannot guarantee a specific delivery timeframe for any items and therefore, buyer is not permitted to cancel the purchase if the item does not ship from the seller within the specified timeframe in the sale confirmation email after purchase. Once we receive the item from the seller it generally takes 7-10 working days for us to authenticate the item and ship it to a buyer. If a buyer does not receive an item, the buyer shall promptly report the issue to Auction2u within 2 days of the latest estimated delivery date. Auction2u has the right, in our sole and absolute discretion to refuse to accept returns or other refunds and/or to charge restocking fees for returned or abandoned items, which are in compliance with the implied gurantees provided under Part V of the Consumer Protection Act 1999, that the items are, amongst others, of acceptable quality, fit for the particular purpose and the goods shall comply with description.
6. Counterfeits, Fraud, and Market Manipulation.
Auction2u takes counterfeiting, fraud and market manipulation very seriously. If a seller provides a counterfeit item or attempts to defraud any buyer or Auction2u, Auction2u reserves the right to do any or all of the following, in its sole discretion: (i) remove any or all of seller’s listings from the Services; (ii) cancel any or all of seller’s orders pending through the Services; (iii) withhold any payments due to seller; (iv) place limits on seller’s buying and selling privileges; (v) charge the seller for costs, expenses and fees incurred by Auction2u as a result of seller’s action or inaction, including charging seller for the cost of replacement items, the value of coupons and gift certificates provided to the buyer, reprinting fees incurred by Auction2u, rerouting charges imposed by carriers, and refunds to the buyer; (vi) ship the item back to the seller at the seller’s cost; (vii) provide the counterfeit items to law enforcement or destroy the counterfeit items, (viii) temporarily or permanently suspend seller’s account, and (ix) charge . Seller hereby agrees that each of the foregoing remedies are reasonable and justified upon Auction2u’s discovery of counterfeit items or fraudulent actions, even if those items or actions were not known by the Seller at the time to be counterfeit or fraudulent (e.g., negligent fraud). Seller understands and agrees that if we provide the counterfeit item to law enforcement, seller’s communications and any property claim with respect to that item must be solely with that law enforcement agency and not with us. We may also use fraud protection measures, including algorithms and automated systems to monitor for fraud, which might result in cancellation of listings or sales or account suspension. If this occurs in error please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may also require additional identification information from you if you engage in certain high-value transactions or high overall payment volumes through Auction2u.
If a buyer receives an item that it believes to be counterfeit, the buyer must notify Auction2u in writing within 3 days after receiving the item, and we will commence an investigation into the item. The buyer shall cooperate with us in the investigation and final disposition of the item, including providing photographs and other evidence of the item, providing the item to law enforcement, destroying the item, or delivering the item back to us, at our direction. If we elect to have the buyer destroy the item, the buyer shall provide reasonable proof of destruction to us. We will refund all fees and costs paid by the buyer for the item (including shipping and handling). In no event may a buyer resell any item (on Auction2u or elsewhere) that is reasonably believed to be counterfeit.
Auction2u may monitor the integrity of the Auction2u marketplace and may take steps to protect the marketplace as determined by Auction2u in its sole discretion (e.g., if Auction2u believes a seller or buyer is engaging in market manipulation or fraud, including creating false or “dummy” accounts). If Auction2u believes that a seller or buyer attempts to interfere with the free and fair operation of the Auction2u marketplace, or creates artificial, false or misleading information, or information appearing to mislead with respect to pricing or demand for a product on the Auction2u marketplace (all of the foregoing in Auction2u’s sole discretion), then, without limiting any other rights of Auction2u, Auction2u reserves the right to do any or all of the following, in its sole discretion: (i) remove any or all of the user’s listings from the Services; (ii) cancel any or all of the user’s orders pending through the Services; (iii) withhold any payments due to the user; (iv) place limits on a user’s buying and selling privileges; (v) charge the user for costs, expenses and fees incurred by Auction2u as a result of the user’s actions; (vi) notify law enforcement of the fraudulent activity; (vii) temporarily or permanently suspend the user’s account, and (viii) charge the user an additional service fee of up to USD$1,000 to cover Auction2u’s investigation fees and other related costs and expenses.
7. Seller Obligations.
By listing an item for sale (each posting, a “New Offer”), you are making a binding offer to sell that specific item to a buyer who purchases the item for the Offer price you have specified and to ship the item in accordance with our FAQ as updated from time to time. When a buyer accepts your offer by purchasing your item through our Services, you are contractually and legally bound to deliver that exact item for the specified price. SELLERS MUST SHIP items via the shipping carrier designated by Auction2u within the specified timeframe provided in the sale confirmation email and must obtain a receipt from the shipping carrier to verify shipment of item. Auction2u will provide you with a shipping label with such carrier after your Offer is matched by a buyer. You are obligated to monitor your inventory and ensure all listings are accurate. Once a Bid and Offer are matched, under no circumstances may a seller cancel the listing. Failure to fulfill your orders will result in additional charges to you, including an additional charge equal to 15% of the transaction amount or USD$15.00 for items below USD$50.00, whichever is greater, as a service fee. If a seller fails to deliver items to Auction2u in accordance with these Terms, Auction2u reserves the right to do any or all of the following, in its sole discretion: (i) charge the selleran additional amount equal to 15% of the transaction amount or USD$15.00 for items below USD$50.00, whichever is greater, as a service fee; (ii) remove any or all of seller’s listings from the Services; (iii) cancel any or all of seller’s orders pending through the Services; (iv) withhold any payments due to seller; (v) place limits on seller’s buying and selling privileges; (vi) charge the sellerfor costs, expenses and fees incurred by Auction2u as a result of seller’s action or inaction, including charging seller for the cost of a replacement, coupons and gift certificates provided to the buyer, reprinting fees incurred by Auction2u, rerouting charges imposed by carriers, and refunds to the buyer; and (vii) temporarily or permanently suspend seller’s account.
As a seller, you are required to ensure that the item you are listing exactly matches the image on the New Offer page and meets the applicable Condition Standard. If Auction2u or a buyer reasonably determines that your item does not conform to the description (including, without limitation, meeting the applicable Condition Standard), or is counterfeit, then we will charge you an amount equal to 15% of the transaction amount or USD$15.00 for items below USD$50.00, whichever is greater, as a service fee, plus additional amounts or, as determined in Auction2u’s discretion, charging you for the cost of a replacement, coupons and gift certificates provided to the buyer, reprinting fees incurred by Auction2u, rerouting charges imposed by carriers, and refunds to the buyer. Auction2u has no obligation to return items that do not conform to the description (including, without limitation, meeting the applicable Condition Standard), or are counterfeit (in which case, Auction2u may turn those items over to the proper authorities) at your cost. Auction2u will pay you within thirty (30) days after the sale is complete, which occurs when the buyer receives the item. To get paid more quickly, ship your items immediately after your Offer is matched by a buyer. To see the fees applicable to sales transactions, please refer to the New Offer window where your Offer price is entered. You will also receive fee information via email notification when an Offer goes live, is updated, or a sale occurs.
8. Buyer Obligations.
As a buyer, you are obligated to pay for any items you Bid on when your Bid matches a seller’s Offer. WHEN YOU PLACE A BID, YOU ARE COMMITTING TO PURCHASE THE ITEM AS SOON AS YOUR BID MATCHES A SELLER’S OFFER PRICE AND YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT PAYMENT OF THE OFFER PRICE WILL BE TAKEN FROM YOUR PAYMENT METHOD. To be an eligible buyer you must have a billing address and shipping address within one of the countries that Auction2u supports. You can see a full list of these countries at Available Countries, which may be updated from time to time. If your address is outside the Malaysia, then you will be responsible for picking up your package and for paying all customs, duties, taxes and any other related fees in addition to the international shipping charges; you will be solely responsible for compliance with all customs requirements on import; and, when placing your order, you authorise us to appoint an agent to file the customs declarations on your behalf. In general, we charge you immediately upon purchase and hold the funds in escrow until the transaction is complete, at which time we pay the seller. You will not receive any interest on the escrowed amount. You might be required to pay certain fees as described when placing your Buy Order, as updated from time to time. If your payment fails or is rejected for any reason (e.g., purchase exceeds credit card limit, card is cancelled, chargeback is requested), Auction2u reserves the right to do any or all of the following, in its sole discretion: (i) charge the buyer an additional amount equal to 10% of the; (ii) remove any or all of buyer’s Bids from the Services; (iii) cancel any or all of buyer’s orders pending through the Services; (iv) withhold refunds or payments due to buyer; (v) place limits on buyer’s buying and selling privileges; (vi) charge the buyer for costs, expenses and fees incurred by Auction2u as a result of buyer’s action or inaction; and (vii) temporarily or permanently suspend buyer’s account.

16. Notification of Infringement of Copyright.
If you’re a copyright owner or an agent of a copyright owner and believe that any User Content infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification to Auction2u’s designated Copyright Agent, email: firstname.lastname@example.org and require Auction2u to remove or disable any access to the electronic copy of that User Content.
You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this Section, your Notification of Infringement of Copyright may not be valid. Auction2u will remove or procure the removal of the User Content from the Auction2u website not later than forty-eight (48) hours from the time the notification was received.
If you believe that your User Content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorisation from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the material in your User Content, you may send a Counter-notification of Infringement of Copyright (“Counter-notification”) containing the following information to the Copyright Agent at the address(es) listed above:
- Your physical or electronic signature;
- Identification of the User Content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the User Content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
- A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the User Content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification; and
- Your name, address, telephone number and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the court in which the address is located, or if the issuer’s address is outside Malaysia, in which the service provider may be found, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided Notification of Infringement of Copyright.
If a Counter-notification is received by Auction2u’s Copyright Agent, Auction2u may send a copy of the Counter-notification to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed User Content or cease disabling it in ten (10) business days. Unless Auction2u receives another notification from the copyright owner that he has filed an action seeking a court order against the User Content provider, member or user, the removed User Content may be restored, in not less than ten (10) business days or more after receipt of the Counter-notification.
