This Agreement applies to all users of the Site, including without limitation users who are vendors, customers, merchants, contributors of content, information and other materials or services on the Site.
1. CarPartDart is a Venue
CarPartDart acts as a venue to allow users who comply with CarPartDart's policies to request, offer, sell and buy car parts. CarPartDart is not directly involved in the transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result, CarPartDart has no control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the items requested or offered, the truth or accuracy of the part requests or offers, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to pay for items. CarPartDart does not pre-screen users or the content or information provided by users. CarPartDart cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction.
Consequently, CarPartDart does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer.
CarPartDart cannot guarantee the true identity, age, or nationality of a user. CarPartDart encourages you to communicate directly with potential transaction partners through the message tool available on the Site. PayPal™ is the payment method of choice, therefore, all rules, responsibilities and safeguards inherent to PayPal™ apply to each and every transaction on CarPartDart.
You agree that CarPartDart is a venue and as such is not responsible or liable for any content, for example, data, text, information, usernames, graphics, images, photographs, profiles, audio, video, items, and links posted by you, other users, or outside parties on CarPartDart.

3. Fees and Billing
CarPartDart is free to use up until the time of sale. It is free to sign-up, free to make part requests and free to reply to part requests with an offer.
CarPartDart.com charges a nominal 2% fee of the total offer price, split evenly between buyer and seller, if and when the car part sells.
For example, If a seller makes an offer for selling a part at $100, inclusive of all shipping and handling fees, the requester has the opportunity to purchase this part, shipped to their door for $101. If the requestor accepts the offer, $101 is transferred to the seller's PayPal™ account, and $2 is immediately transferred from the seller's PayPal™ account to Carpartdart's PayPal™ account. Any and all PayPal™ fees are further deducted from the remaining $99 by PayPal™.
As a part requestor/buyer: when you accept an offer for a part, you have an opportunity to review and accept the 1% fee that you will be charged. CarPartDart's Fees Policy, which is subject to change, is incorporated into this Agreement by reference. Changes to the Fees Policy and the fees for CarPartDart's services are effective after CarPartDart provides you with notice by posting the changes on this page of this site. However, CarPartDart may choose to temporarily change the Fee Policy and the fees for CarPartDart's services for promotional events; such changes are effective when CarPartDart posts the temporary promotional event on this page of this Site. CarPartDart may, at CarPartDart's sole discretion, change some or all of CarPartDart's services at any time. In the event CarPartDart introduces a new service, the fees for that service are effective at the launch of the service. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in US Dollars (USD).
In certain situations, including but not limited to a void or invalid transaction, CarPartDart may issue a credit for the applicable fees only, to a buyer's or seller's PayPal™ account. You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with using CarPartDart.
The selling member is the merchant of record in the eyes of PayPal™ with CarPartDart acting merely as a broker. All buyer-initiated chargebacks are executed by PayPal™ at PayPal's discretion. CarPartDart has no input on PayPal's decision, which is final.
Fees and Termination: If CarPartDart terminates a part request posting from your account, if you close your account, or if the payment of your CarPartDart fees cannot be completed for any reason, you remain obligated to pay CarPartDart for all unpaid fees plus any penalties, if applicable. If the seller's account is not paid in full and becomes past due, the seller risks penalties such as the suspension of privileges and/or termination of the account and other collection mechanisms (including retaining collection agencies and legal counsel). If you have a question or wish to dispute a charge, email support@CarPartDart.com
4. Offers and Selling
Offer Description: By replying to a part request generated by the Site, you warrant that you and all aspects of the item comply with CarPartDart's published policies. You also warrant that you may legally sell the item. You must accurately describe your item and all terms of sale in your listings. Your offers may only include text descriptions, pictures and other content relevant to the sale of that item. Each offer must accurately and completely describe the item/items for sale in that listing. Your offer is an "on your doorstep price" so it is the seller's responsibility to make an offer inclusive of shipping. The Buyer's postal (zip) code is provided with all requests, enabling the seller to calculate the shipping costs offline and offer the part at a decent price inclusive of shipping.
Binding Sale: All sales are binding and subject to the terms of PayPay™ PayPal Policies. The seller is obligated to ship the part or otherwise complete the transaction with the buyer in a prompt manner, unless there is an exceptional circumstance, such as: (a) the buyer fails to meet the terms of the seller's listing (such as payment method), or (b) the seller cannot authenticate the buyer's identity. The buyer is obligated to deliver appropriate payment for items purchased, unless there is an exceptional circumstance.
The all-inclusive price stated in each item listing description must be an accurate representation of the sale. Sellers should include a reasonable shipping and handling fee to cover the costs for packaging and shipping the items.
