1. Reverb Credits Require Use of Reverb Payments

A. Reverb Credits Require Reverb Payments   In order to buy or sell items using Reverb Credits (a “Reverb Credits Transaction”), such Buyer or seller must be a Registered Seller with a Reverb Payments Checkout Account (“Reverb Payments Account”) and agree to the terms associated therewith. Reverb Credits may only be spent and are only accepted through Reverb Payments. Reverb Payments allows Registered Sellers to accept authorized credit card transactions or Reverb gift card payments.

B. No Agency   Reverb helps facilitate marketplace transactions. It is not the purchaser of any seller’s goods and it is not the agent of a buyer in a transaction through the Site. Reverb’s receipt of a payment through Reverb Payments is related to a transaction between a Registered Seller and the relevant buyer and not Reverb or any of Reverb’s affiliates. Reverb provides a payment processing platform for Registered Sellers and it is not a party to any transaction through the Site. See Reverb’s general Terms of Use for more information.

C. Reverb Payments Availability   Reverb Payments is generally available seven (7) days per week, twenty-four (24) hours per day, except for scheduled downtime due to system maintenance. This is not, however, a warranty or guarantee of any such availability, but merely a projection of estimated availability. By using the Site you accept that delays and outages are inevitable, acknowledge that the site is being provided “AS IS” and with all faults, and waive any claims with respect to the same.

D. Reverb Payments Eligibility   Reverb Payments is only available to sellers who and are approved for a Reverb Payments Account (a “Registered Seller”). Sellers must meet the following requirements to obtain and maintain Registered Seller status: (a) sellers must be at least 18 years old to register for a Reverb Payments Account; (b) prior to enrolling, sellers must register bank account information and undergo identity verification; (c) sellers must be current on all Reverb fees and have valid payment information on file; (d) once enrolled, sellers must maintain an average of 4 of 5 star or 80% positive feedback ratio to continue to participate in Reverb Payments; (e) once enrolled, sellers must maintain a rate of order cancellation below 10% of their total order volume; (f) prior to enrolling, sellers must publish policies for refunds and returns for their shops; (g) once enrolled, sellers must maintain policies for refunds and returns for their shops; and (h) once enrolled, sellers must continue to comply with this Agreement.

E. Reverb Payments Modifications   Reverb Payments functionality may be made available, modified, or discontinued by us at any time without notice and is subject to the limitations in Reverb’s general Terms of Use.

F. Transaction Limits   As a security measure, we may impose transaction limits on some or all Buyers, and/or Registered Sellers on any transaction, deposit, or adjustment, the cumulative value of all transactions, deposits, or adjustments, or the number of transactions per day or during any other period of time. We will not be liable to a Registered Seller: (i) if we do not proceed with a transaction, deposit, or adjustment that would exceed any limit established by us; or (ii) if we permit a Buyer to withdraw from a transaction to avoid exceeding a Reverb-established transaction limit.

G. Right to Refuse Service   We may refuse service to anyone, for any reason, at any time.

2. Reverb Credits Transactions

A. Authorization   Buyers may only authorize a Reverb Credits Transaction if at least part of the total payment is being made with Reverb Credits.

B. Compliance with Terms of Use   By registering for Reverb Credits, a Registered Seller agrees to always comply with and to sell items in accordance with Reverb’s general Terms of Use.

C. Reverb Credits are Solely for Reverb Transactions   The use of Reverb Credits must be solely for the sale and purchase of items listed on the Site. A Registered Seller agrees to ship sold item(s) once the Reverb Credits Transaction is complete and reflected in the Reverb Payments Account. Reverb reserves the right to terminate Registered Seller’s access to Reverb Credits or Reverb Payments if the Registered Seller is determined to be using Reverb Credits or Reverb Payments Payments for transfer of funds not related to the sale of items listed on the Site.

D. Right to Reject High Risk Transactions   Reverb reserves the right to decline any Reverb Credits Transactions that we have reason to believe may be high risk, fraudulent, or in violation of this Agreement. Reverb also retains the right to refuse to complete any transaction in Reverb Credits at any time and for any reason. In the event of such a refusal, the transaction will be completed in ordinary currency with no associated Reverb Credits Boost.

E. Fraud   Reverb will bear the risk of credit card fraud (i.e. fraudulent purchase arising from the theft and unauthorized use of a third party’s credit card information) occurring in connection with Reverb Credits Transactions. In the event a Registered Seller or Buyer is indirectly or directly involved with and/or participates in any credit card fraud, Reverb will not be liable and such Registered Seller or Buyer will be subject to indemnification obligations set forth in Reverb’s general Terms of Use. Additionally, such Registered Seller or Buyer’s access to the Site may be terminated immediately. Reverb retains the right to contact the appropriate law enforcement agency and to report the Registered Seller or Buyer’s activities on the Site. In the event Reverb exercises this right, or if a Registered Seller or Buyer is found in violation of this provision, the Registered Seller or Buyer hereby consents to the disclosure of any information, including personal information, to any appropriate law enforcement agency.

F. Privacy    Reverb maintains records associated with Reverb Credits Transactions and does not pass any confidential data, including credit card numbers, to Registered Sellers. Registered Sellers will receive shipping information and limited Buyer account information only as needed to complete the order. Use of this information is dictated by our Privacy Policy.
