1. SELLER REPRESENTATIONS
1.1 You represent and warrant to us that:
(a) you are at least 18 years of age;
(b) you possess the legal right and ability to enter into a legally binding agreement with MyDeal and a User with respect to any Product or Voucher sold or offered by you on the Site; and
(c) you will use the Site in accordance with these Seller Terms and Conditions.
2. OUR RELATIONSHIP
2.1 MyDeal provides a Site whereby you may advertise Products and Vouchers for sale to Users. Users may order and purchase those Products and Vouchers from you, as a Seller. Users do not purchase any Products or Vouchers from MyDeal directly and MyDeal simply acts as a limited agent for you and the User, for the following purposes only:
(a) facilitating the purchase of Products or Vouchers from you by Users;
(b) collecting payment from Users for purchases which they make;
(c) paying you your Seller Fees (as described below); and
(d) providing the Support Services (as described below) in respect of issues arising between you and Users, in relation to the supply of Products or Vouchers.
3. ACCOUNTS AND APPLICATION FORMS
3.1 You agree that in order to offer Products or Vouchers for sale on the Site, you must have an online account with MyDeal which is accessible via marketplace.mydeal.com.au and will be established for you by MyDeal (“Account”).
3.2 You will be responsible for all usage of your Account and the use of your Account by others (including your employees, officers or agents) or any unauthorised use. You must immediately advise us if you become aware of unauthorised use. Your user name and password for your Account are non-transferrable and must be kept confidential. You must ensure that your registration details are true and accurate at all times.
3.3 At the time an Account is set up, and at such other times as required by MyDeal, Sellers must complete a seller application form containing the details of the Products and/or Vouchers that will be offered for sale on the Site, and certain other information as requested by MyDeal from time to time on the form (“Seller Application Form”). Once you submit a Seller Application Form to MyDeal, we will contact you to confirm if we accept the Seller Application Form, what changes or additions are required to be made to the Seller Application Form before we accept it, or if we have rejected the Seller Application Form. We may reject a Seller Application Form at any time in our sole and absolute discretion and prohibit you from creating an Account on the Site.
3.4 Once we accept a Seller Application Form, we will permit you to list your Products and Vouchers for sale to Users on the Site. If you are asked by us to complete a new Seller Application Form, then this will override any prior form completed by you.
3.5 Either at the time of completing a Seller Application Form or at such other time as notified to you by MyDeal in our sole discretion, we will confirm to you our commission which we will deduct from all sales which you make through the Site (“Commission”). We may also update our Commission by written notice to you at any time. Any updated Commission will only apply to new orders of your Products and Vouchers, but not existing orders.
4.1 When you list a Product or Voucher for sale on the Site, you must include all information as required by MyDeal about you and the relevant Product or Voucher. Such information may include (without limitation):
(a) your name, address and contact details;
(b) the total price payable by the Users for the Product(s) and/or Voucher(s), including (but subject to clause 4.2) all delivery costs and charges (“Sale Price”);
(c) the terms of your Seller Terms (as defined below);
(d) details of any warranty applicable to a Product and/or Voucher; and
(e) any other relevant information requested by MyDeal or required in order to accurately or legally represent and describe the Products and/or Vouchers.
4.2 If at the time of sale of a Product, the Seller is unable to determine the delivery charges to the User or provide an accurate estimate of the delivery charges (due solely to conflicting or inaccurate information supplied by the User), then the Seller may subsequently notify the User of new accurate delivery charges once an order is placed but before it is dispatched (“Delivery Fee”). If the User rejects the Delivery Fee then the sale will be cancelled and the User will receive a refund. If the User accepts the Delivery Fee then the sale will proceed, and the Sale Price will be deemed to include the Delivery Fee.
4.3 MyDeal relies on information provided to it by each Seller in connection with the Products and Vouchers, and each Seller warrants that any information provided by it is accurate, current, complete, correct and complies with all applicable laws.
4.4 MyDeal will not be liable for any mistake or misrepresentation made by you in connection with the Products and/or Vouchers or contained in a Seller Application Form, and you indemnify MyDeal for and against any loss, cost (including legal fees on a full indemnity basis), damage, expense, or claim (including for negligence) suffered or incurred by MyDeal in connection with your misrepresentation, mistake, infringement of any person’s rights (including in respect of intellectual property rights), or breach of law in connection with the sale of the Products and/or Vouchers.
4.5 You agree that MyDeal may:
(a) suspend, terminate and/or close your Account at any time;
(b) refuse to accept a Seller Application Form; or
(c) remove any Product or Voucher listing from the Site,
for any reason in MyDeal’s sole and absolute discretion, with or without notice to you.
4.6 Upon terminating and/or closing your Account, or during any period of suspension, you will not be permitted to use any features or functionality of the Site which is reserved for registered Sellers or offer your Products/Vouchers for sale to Users on the Site.
5. SELLER TERMS
5.1 You must specify the complete terms of the sale of your Products or Vouchers (“Seller Terms”) on your Seller profile page or on the listing page for each of the Products and/or Vouchers that you offer for sale on the Site. Your Seller Terms are deemed to include the following minimum terms of supply:

6. ORDERS AND PAYMENT
6.1 When an order for a Product or Voucher by a User is accepted by a Seller via the Site, the User and the Seller will at that time form a legally binding agreement between each other on the terms of your Seller Terms (and a reference in these Seller Terms and Conditions to the “Seller Terms” will include the binding agreement reached between you and the User on the basis of those terms).
6.2 A Seller must communicate its acceptance or rejection of a User’s order promptly and in accordance with any time frames stipulated in the SLA (as that term is defined in clause 8.1(b) of these Seller Terms and Conditions). If you reject an order, then the Sale Price paid by the User in respect of that order will be refunded to them.
6.3 The User will select Products or Vouchers they wish to purchase via the Site, which may include orders from multiple Sellers. When the User commits to purchase those Products or Vouchers, it will make payment of the total amount to MyDeal (Total Purchase Amount).

You agree that the Total Purchase Amount, once paid to MyDeal, is the property of MyDeal, and that you have no claim to the Total Purchase Amount (or any part of it).
6.4 Payment of the Total Purchase Amount will be made by Users directly to MyDeal, and not to any Seller. Payments will be made:
(a) via third-party payment platform(s) (including, without limitation, PayPal, eWay and ZipPay) or any other means of payment provided by MyDeal through the Site from time to time; and
(b) subject to acceptance of, and in accordance with, any credit account terms and conditions or terms and conditions of use of a third-party payment platform or services provider or the Seller.

(a) MyDeal’s Commission;
(b) any transaction fee payable to MyDeal as described in a Seller Application Form or that MyDeal has advised you in its sole discretion; and
(c) any applicable third-party fees or charges as notified to a Seller by MyDeal in writing from time to time (collectively, the “Charges”).

(b) refund administration fees payable to MyDeal as described in a Seller Application Form or that MyDeal has advised you in its sole discretion
(c) credit card charge backs or amounts declined by a payment provider to MyDeal in relation to a sale of a Seller’s Products or Vouchers;
(d) sales of Products or Vouchers which a Seller has indicated as being dispatched (thereby triggering an accrual of the Seller Fee under clause 6.7), but which in fact have not been dispatched;
(e) any amount which MyDeal reasonably considers that a Seller may owe to MyDeal after the Seller Fee is paid to the Seller; and
(f) any other amount which a Seller owes to MyDeal under these Seller Terms and Conditions or on any other account whatsoever.

6.11 MyDeal may modify the Charges which apply at any time by notice to the Seller. If the Seller does not wish to accept the modified Charges, the Seller’s only recourse or remedy is to remove the Product(s) and/or Voucher(s) from the Site and/or cancel its Account (but any Products or Vouchers already sold prior to modification of the Charges will not be affected).
6.12 To receive remittance of the Seller Fee in accordance with this clause, the Seller must provide accurate and current account information in the format and via the means requested by MyDeal or a third-party payment platform or service provider from time to time.
6.13 The Seller is solely responsible for updating its account information as required and for providing a valid delivery tracking code for each order. MyDeal will not be liable for any loss, cost, damage, or claim (including for negligence) suffered or incurred by the Seller in connection with a failure to receive or delay in receiving payment (including, but not limited to, a failure caused by the supply of inaccurate account information or an invalid delivery tracking code).
