References to ‘us’ means Round She Goes and references to ‘you’ mean you, the user of the Website. By using the Website, including without limitation only visiting or browsing the Website, you are deemed to have accepted these Terms, including the additional terms and conditions and policies incorporated by reference into these Terms. The Terms constitute the entire agreement between us and you concerning the Website, including the online Round She Goes market service accessible at roundshegoes.com.au/shop (‘Round She Goes Market’).
The Round She Goes Market
The Round She Goes Market is an online service on the Website that allows you to sell and buy women’s fashion items, including clothing and accessories, using the Website.
Each transaction and interaction on the Round She Goes Market occurs solely and completely between a user selling on the Website (‘Seller’) and a user buying on the Website (‘Buyer’). Round She Goes plays no part in the transactions and/or interactions that occur between Sellers and Buyers other than providing the Round She Goes Market platform and suggesting guidelines for them to operate within. Round She Goes takes no responsibility, in any way whatsoever, for any products, including without limitation the quality or integrity of a product, the transaction, and/or interactions between Sellers and Buyers or any consequences resulting from these or any other activities on the Website.
Any person in Australia can apply to to sell on the Website providing they have quality womenswear items to sell. Your eligibility to sell on the Website will be determined by us at our sole discretion.
The Round She Goes Market is intended for persons who are 18 years or older. By registering to use the Round She Goes Market, you represent and warrant that you are 18 years or older and capable of entering into a legal binding agreement to use the Round She Goes Market.
Sellers must be residents of Australia and residing in Australia to sell on the Website.
If you are registering for a business, you are declaring that you have authority to act on behalf of the entity for which you have registered. The information provided in the registration and in relation to your account must be true, correct, and not ambiguous, and must be updated by you when changes occur.
Registered users are able to set up their online Round She Goes Market profile (‘Shop’) and list their items for sale.
Round She Goes is strictly for women’s preloved fashion items (and new lingerie and make-up) or handmade items. The following can be sold using the Round She Goes Market service:
– skirts and shorts;
– tops and blouses;
– accessories (hats, belts, sunglasses, badges, scarfs, gloves, fascinators, tights and stockings, and hair accessories);
– trousers and leggings;
– coats and jackets;
– new, unused lingerie;
– new make up and perfume;
– bags and purses;
– suits; and
– jumpers and cardigans.
High-end luxury items such as new or near new designer handbags must include an original receipt or proof of authenticity. Round She Goes can recommend authorised certifiers. Round She Goes may, at its sole discretion, remove or refuse certain item listings if the items do not comply with the aesthetic and quality requirements of Round She Goes. Items deemed offensive by Round She Goes will be removed without warning. Offensive items include any items suspected or deemed to be illegal or in bad taste, including without limitation counterfeit items.
Prior to sale, the details, price and other information in an item listing can be changed by the Seller. An item listing becomes a binding offer for sale at the price, and on the basis of the item details, at the time a Buyer agrees to purchase that item and proceeds with payment. Once an item has been sold, the details relating to that unique item cannot be changed under any circumstances.
Where the information relating to an item is incorrect or misleading at the time of sale, the Seller is liable to give a full refund, including the relevant postage, shipping, and handling costs (‘Postage Costs’), to the Buyer. Where an item listed on the Seller’s Shop is also listed elsewhere, the Seller must take immediate action to remove that listing from Round She Goes Market when it is sold.
Sellers are wholly responsible for ensuring that they are legally entitled to sell the items they list for sale on their Shop. Sellers agree to ship purchased items to the Buyer promptly. Slow delivery may justify poor feedback from a Buyer. Postage Costs set by the Seller must be reasonable.
Any Seller who has received payment for an item but has failed to send it within a reasonable window of time may have their account terminated and be banned by us, at our sole discretion, from all Round She Goes activities, including without limitation the Round She Goes Market and offline market events.
If any item you have listed sells online with us and you cannot ship it to the buyer because it had already sold anywhere else, it's a very bad experience for the buyer. In such cases, we might require you to compensate the buyer, and take additional measures, including suspending your account.
From time to time, Sellers may organise promotions or sales on their Shop items at their discretion.
All Seller sales terms must be stated in the Seller’s Shop policies.
In order to receive payment for the sale of any of their items on the Round She Goes Market, Sellers must have an active PayPal online payment service (‘PayPal’) account. Sellers must also specify the email address of their PayPal account in their Shop. Failure to do so will mean that a Seller will not be able to receive the proceeds of any sales of their items.
All applicable taxes such as GST are the Seller’s responsibility.
Buyers agree to buy an item on Round She Goes by clicking the ‘Proceed to checkout’ button. By agreeing to purchase and paying for an item, you form a binding agreement to purchase that item and are bound by any policies and/or terms and conditions of the Shop from which you purchased it, providing that those policies and/or terms and conditions are not in breach of these Terms.
You can purchase items by using your PayPal account or by using a credit card or debit card (via PayPal). PayPal is a safe and secure way to pay online. To be entitled to PayPal Buyer Protection for a purchase, you must log in and pay via your PayPal account.
Prior to the time of sale, the details, price and other information in relation to an item can be changed by the Seller. If information relating to an item has been found to be incorrect or misleading at the time of sale, the Seller may be liable to provide the Buyer with a full refund, including Postage Costs, to the Buyer.
As a Buyer, it is your responsibility to make sure that you are legally entitled to purchase any item that you purchase and that your shipping address is specified correctly when making a purchase.

Refund policy and procedure
Sellers are encouraged to provide as much information as possible when listing an item on the Website in order to provide an accurate representation of the item, including its quality, size, and history.

A Seller’s refund and exchange policy must comply with Schedule 2 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (‘Australian Consumer Law’) to the extent that the Australian Consumer Law applies.
Consumer guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law do not apply to one-off sales by private Sellers (consumer to consumer sales), but do apply to sales made in the course of any Seller’s business (business to consumer sales).

It is each Seller’s responsibility to understand and comply with legal requirements that apply to sales they make through the Website.
If a Buyer wants to lodge a claim for a refund or exchange, they can do this through the Website but logging into their account, clicking on ‘My Invoices’ and the ‘lodge a refund request’ in the ‘Action’ column beside the relevant purchase in the list of their purchases. This will send a refund request to the Seller. Alternatively, a Buyer can send a Mail message to the Seller requesting an exchange or refund.
It is the Seller’s responsibility to determine whether they will provide a refund or exchange. It is possible to provide a refund through PayPal within 45 calendar days of the original transaction.
PayPal Buyer Protection
If a Buyer is not satisfied with a Seller’s response to their request for a refund or exchange, they can raise a dispute through PayPal’s Resolution Centre. You can read more about PayPal’s transaction dispute process at: www.paypal.com/au/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=xpt/CaseManagement/customerservice/EducationBuyerOverview.
