If there are any major updates, all Users will be notified.)
Access to the Website
We endeavour to keep the website up and running 100% of the time. We cannot however guarantee that this will always be the case. We therefor reserve the right to take the website down for short periods of time for maintenance or any other reason deemed necessary by Offer Parade. Every attempt will be made to keep the downtime to the absolute minimum. We will not be held liable if the website is unavailable. We will not be held liable if an individual cannot access the website but will provide support to assist any User experiencing a problem.
Everyone, not just registered Users, can access, Browse and use the Search functions of the website or mobile application, without registering or logging in. Transacting on the website refers to using the features such as making an Offer, Buy Now, Manage Products, Messaging, Tell a Friend, and so forth. Registration and Login is required to Transact.
Users are required to use an active email and password to login. You will be required to verify your registration via the email address. Your login information MUST NEVER be shared with anyone. Select a strong password. For the security of your Offer Parade account, You will be automatically logged out of the website if you have not been active on the site for a few minutes. If you think your account has been breached, please notify Offer Parade immediately and if you can still login, do so and immediately go to your profile and change your password. Our contact information is on the website.
Items or content of any type that are deemed offensive for whatever reason can be reported by a User. The Offer Parade team will investigate and will remove the item if deemed offensive, or in more serious cases, will terminate the User account responsible for the transgression. Messages between Buyers and Sellers are confidential between the two parties except where a report has been lodged. Where an item has been reported, the messages associated with that item only, will be made available to the Offer Parade investigating team. All other messages are private between the Buyer and Seller.
Terminating a User's account is exclusively at Offer Parade's discretion. This would typically be related to cases where these Terms and Conditions have not been adhered to or if the website was not used in the spirit intended (i.e. mutual respect, honesty, ethical).
Offer Parade is not responsible for incorrect, misleading or provocative information on the website. In the case of the latter, Offer Parade will endeavour to remove any provocative content as soon as possible and will take whichever measures deemed necessary to ensure that this type of transgression is caught early and individuals listing such content are banned from using the site.
Offer Parade does not set the prices for any of the items on the website. All prices are inclusive of VAT. Retailers should include VAT into their Buy Now prices and be aware that Offers will include a VAT component. Private Sellers will not need to consider VAT even though the website will indicate that VAT is included in the price.
The Buy Now price is what the Seller deems to be the value of the item. This could be the price of the item on the shelf or the price they paid for it recently or a sale price specifically applicable to Offer Parade Users. The Seller is OBLIGATED to let the item go at the Buy Now price if a Buyer elected to purchase the item at said price.
If there are multiple units of the same item, a Buyer can purchase multiple units at the Buy Now price. Private Seller sales, especially for secondhand goods, would generally not have a Buy Now price.
The Seller has the right to decline any Offer they receive. They also have the right to choose an Offer that may not be the highest one they receive. Where this could happen is where a Seller and a Buyer negotiated through Offer Parade's Messaging functionality and agreed on a price. The Seller should ignore any higher Offers that comes in after an agreement was struck with a Buyer. This may not always be the case as the Seller has control over accepting Offers, but in the spirit of mutual respect, We hope that this is how such type negotiations will be handled.
The Seller is obligated to let an item go at the Buy Now price. This is not an Offer and must be transacted, by the Buyer, in the Buy Now section. Click on the Buy Now button to access this section for the specific item. If a Buy Now price is not specified, it is because the Seller chose not to include one.
A Seller CAN accept multiple Offers made on items that have more than one unit listed, provided they have sufficient units of the item listed on Offer Parade. The system will prevent the Seller from selling more units than they have available on Offer Parade.
Buyers will pay the agreed amount directly to the seller at such time as the Buyer collects the item.
Do not provide personal details (such as bank details) in any communications between Buyers and Sellers.
