Terms & Conditions of Sale

  1. Definitions & Interpretation

Unless otherwise defined, the definitions and provisions in respect of interpretation set out in Schedule 1 of Terms of Use shall also apply to these Terms & Conditions of Sale.  

  1. Purchase of Products

2.1 Your Compliance: You agree to comply with any and all the guidelines, notices, operating rules and policies and instructions pertaining to the purchase of Products through the Platform, as well as any amendments to the aforementioned, issued by YesCart (whether as part of use of the Platform or in relation to the purchase of Products, on behalf of Seller), from time to time. YesCart reserves the right to revise these guidelines, notices, operating rules and policies and instructions at any time and you are deemed to be aware of and bound by any changes to the foregoing upon their publication on the Platform.

2.2 Product Description: While Seller endeavors to provide an accurate description of the Products, neither YesCart nor Seller warrants that such description is accurate, current or free from error. In the event that the Product you receive is of a fundamentally different nature from the Product as described on the Platform and which you have ordered, Clause 6 of these Terms & Conditions of Sale for YesCart shall apply.

2.3 Sellers: Products are sold by “Sellers”. YesCart may be a “Seller” for selected Products. “Seller” may also refer to a party other than YesCart (such party referred to in these Terms & Conditions of Sale for YesCart as a “Third Party Vendor”). Whether a particular Product is listed for sale on the Platform by YesCart or a Third Party Vendor may be stated on the webpage listing that Product. Products sold to you by Sellers will be governed by individual Customer Contracts (more details below in Clause 2.6) which:

(a)       for Products sold by Third Party Vendors, shall be agreements entered into directly and only between the Third Party Vendor and you; and

(b)       for Products sold by YesCart, shall be agreements entered into directly and only between YesCart and you.

2.4 Placing your Order: You may place an Order by completing the Order form on the Platform and clicking on the “Place my Order” button. Seller will not accept Orders placed in any other manner. You shall be responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the Order.

2.5 Orders are irrevocable and unconditional: All Orders will be deemed to be irrevocable and unconditional upon transmission through the Platform and Seller shall be entitled (but not obliged) to process such Order(s) without your further consent and without any further reference or notice to you. Nevertheless, in certain circumstances as stated in Clause 8, you may request to cancel or amend the Order which Seller will endeavor to give effect to on a commercially reasonable effort basis. However, notwithstanding the foregoing, Seller is not obliged to give effect to any request to cancel or amend any Order.

2.6 Seller’s reservation of rights in respect of Orders: All Orders shall be subject to Seller’s acceptance in its sole discretion and each Order accepted by Seller (such accepted Order to be referred to as a “Customer Contract”) shall constitute a separate contract. You acknowledge that unless you receive a notice from Seller accepting your Order, Seller shall not be party to any legally binding agreements or promises made between Seller and you for the sale or other dealings with the Product(s) and accordingly Seller shall not be liable for any Losses which may be incurred as a result. For the avoidance of doubt, Seller reserves the right to decline to process or accept any Order received from or through the Platform in its absolute discretion.

2.7 Product Warranty: The warranties with respect to a Product (“Product Warranty”) sold under a Customer Contract shall be as stated by Seller via the Platform, under the “Specifications” tab in the fields “Warranty Type” and “Warranty Period” for the relevant Product, and shall be limited by the terms and conditions therein. The warranties and conditions, remedies for breach of warranty or condition, or other terms stated in the Product Warranty are, unless expressly prohibited by applicable mandatory law, in lieu of all other terms, warranties and conditions, whether expressed or implied, statutory or otherwise. Except as expressly provided in such Product Warranty, Seller excludes (unless expressly prohibited by applicable mandatory law) all other express or implied terms, warranties or conditions with respect to the Products supplied.

2.8 Customer’s Acknowledgement: You acknowledge and warrant that you have not relied on any term, condition, warranty, undertaking, inducement or representation made by or on behalf of Seller which has not been stated expressly in a Customer Contract or upon any descriptions or illustrations or specifications contained in any document including any catalogues or publicity material produced by either YesCart or Seller. You also acknowledge and agree that the exclusion of warranties, exclusion of liability and exclusion of remedies in these Terms & Conditions of Sale for YesCart and Customer Contracts allocate risks between the parties and permit Seller to provide the Products at lower fees or prices than Seller otherwise could and you agree that such exclusions on liability are reasonable.

2.9 No representations or warranties: Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing Clause 2.9: 

2.9.1    no condition is made or to be implied nor is any warranty given or to be implied as to the life or wear of the Products supplied or that they will be suitable for any particular purpose or use under any specific conditions, notwithstanding that such purpose or conditions may be known or made known to Seller;

2.9.2    Seller binds itself only to deliver Products in accordance with the general description under which they were sold, whether or not any special or particular description shall have been given or shall be implied by law.

Neither YesCart nor Seller gives any warranty as to the quality, state, condition or fitness of the Products;

2.9.3    YesCart shall be under no liability for the following measures and actions taken by the Customer or third parties and the consequences thereof: improper remedy of defects, alteration of the Products without the prior agreement of YesCart, addition and insertion of parts, in particular of spare parts which do not come from YesCart;

2.10 Intellectual Property:
