You agree that we have no obligation to you if any of your unclaimed funds are turned over to governmental authorities in accordance with applicable law.
The following terms also apply to any Purchase transaction:
Product Eligibility. WeBuyPhones determines, in its sole discretion, which Products are eligible for purchase or sale by or through the WeBuyPhones Services and WeBuyPhones Websites and for which eligible Products WeBuyPhones will provide an offer or sell. WeBuyPhones may terminate the eligibility of certain Products at any time and without advanced notice, but such termination will not affect any Products for which you have already accepted an offer, which is good for thirty (30) days, except as set forth in Section 9 below. WeBuyPhones reserves the right to cancel any Purchase and refund any applicable purchase price actually received by WeBuyPhones at any time prior to delivery of the Product to You.Condition Defined for Trade-In and Purchase. WeBuyPhones uses six (6) basic Product conditions to grade Products for Trade-In, ranging from "New" or "Excellent" to "Good" or "Broken” or “Dead” or “Locked”. Conditions can vary widely between categories and types of Products. Broadly, WeBuyPhones's Product definitions are as follows:
- Credit Card – Your credit card will be charged by WeBuyPhones when your order is placed, unless you choose to pay with your PayPal account.
- Sales Tax – State Sales Tax will apply to all items shipped to Florida, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Washington or any other jurisdiction in which we are legally obligated to collect sales tax.
- Shipping - Shipping is not free. WeBuyPhones provides fixed, leveled prices associated with ground, expedited, and next day shipping. Shipping is provided by TheCourierGuy
- Returns - WeBuyPhones offers a 30-day domestic return policy which commences on the delivery date, as reported by the shipping carrier. In the event of a return, WeBuyPhones will refund the full amount of the item(s) being returned. If free return shipping applies to a purchase, it is only valid within the 50 South Africa based on the original delivery address and is provided via TheCourierGuy. The cost of any return without an RMA and without using the supplied TheCourierGuy label is your responsibility.
- Consumables - Consumables such as batteries have a limited lifespan and may not function in a like-new manner. Please be aware that some devices require service, carrier service contracts and/or data plans in order for the Product to be fully functional. These services and plans are not included in the purchase price and are not provided by WeBuyPhones unless and until separately offered and purchased.
- Product Pricing - WeBuyPhones regularly adjusts prices based on a variety of factors, including market conditions and individual Product condition, and therefore does not price match other Product sellers and does not provide price adjustments once a payment is complete. Prices for the same or similar Products may vary between the WeBuyPhones Websites and third-party marketplaces like eBay or Amazon.
- Product Availability – Products are not guaranteed to be available until the order for Purchase is accepted by WeBuyPhones and confirmed on the applicable WeBuyPhones Website. Notwithstanding the foregoing, WeBuyPhones reserves the right to cancel any order for Purchase at any time prior to delivery of the Product for any reason.
- Maximum Product Quantity – WeBuyPhones does not permit more than three (3) Product purchases per transaction. If you are interested in purchasing a greater quantity, please contact Customer Care.
- Partial Order Fulfillment – If an order can only be partially filled, all available Products will ship and WeBuyPhones will reimburse the different to the original method of payment.
- Technical Support – WeBuyPhones does not provide any technical or other support in connection with any Product offered for sale. You are responsible for all Product use and set up.
New: Brand New Sealed and never used
Excellent : No noticeable signs of use
Good : Used device, does show signs of use but everything works and no cracks
Broken : Device has some fault but still powers on and functions
Dead : Devce does not power on but contains all components
Locked : Device is locked to network or icloud but works and powers on
The above definitions are broad guidelines. More specific condition definitions specific to the category and/ or type of Product may be included on the WeBuyPhones Website offer screen and serve as the effective condition definition for that product. Condition definitions are subject to change at WeBuyPhones's discretion. If you are uncertain about your Product's condition, please seek guidance by contacting WeBuyPhones's customer care.
All products available for purchase are, where applicable, eligible for activation on the carrier network identified for that particular device. It is important to select your specific carrier when purchasing a WeBuyPhones certified preowned device, as we can only guarantee it to work with the selected carrier. For example, we can only guarantee that a WeBuyPhones certified AT&T device can be activated on AT&T; we cannot guarantee that it can be activated on any other carrier and we cannot guarantee that it can be unlocked.
We can also only guarantee that your WeBuyPhones certified preowned device will work domestically within South Africa. We cannot guarantee that it will work internationally.
- Product Valuation. All offers will be based on WeBuyPhones's own determination of the Product value in reliance on the accuracy of the information you supply us. WeBuyPhones will use its discretion to determine the Product value, weighing factors that may include the Product's model, functionality and condition and whether necessary Product accessories have been provided by you. Upon receiving an offer, you have the option of accepting or rejecting that offer. Acceptance indicates you are willing to provide your Product to WeBuyPhones at the offered price. If you do not accept WeBuyPhones's offer, the specific transaction expires. If after rejecting the offer you change your mind and want to accept the offer, you will need to open another transaction with us at which point, assuming the Product is still eligible for purchase, the new offer may be different as Product prices are subject to change.
- Fitness for Sale; Phone and Internet Service. You must have all right, title, and interest in any and all Products you seek to sell to WeBuyPhones and all Products must be able to be activated for new service (unless the Product is incapable of being activated because it is in "Broken" condition). The Products and the sale and shipment of such items to WeBuyPhones: (a) must comply with all applicable laws, statutes, ordinances, including without limitation all import and export laws as described in Section 14 below, (b) may not infringe on third party intellectual property rights (including copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade secrets or other proprietary rights), and (c) shall not be counterfeit, stolen, or fraudulent. You represent and warrant that the Products are free of any liens or encumbrances, including third-party software which may not be transferred or for which royalties are due. By using the WeBuyPhones Services, you agree to indemnify WeBuyPhones from all claims or losses sustained by WeBuyPhones as a result of any breach of your representations and warranties. It is your responsibility to discontinue phone, Internet and/or any similar service on your Product prior to selling it to WeBuyPhones. WeBuyPhones is not responsible for any service charges related to your Product, whether you incur such charges before, during or after your use of the Services. It is also your responsibility to remove any security codes that would prevent use of any Product.
- Sending WeBuyPhones Your Product for Trade-In or Return. When packaging your Product, be sure to include all materials included in your description when we calculated your offer for Trade-In, or, in the case of Purchase, include all materials provided by WeBuyPhones in the package you received. For Trade-In, this may include software, accessories, adapters, and manuals. Failure to include any items you told us about when the offer was calculated, or sending us a Product which does not match your original description, may impact the final value of your Product and may result in a revised offer.
- Removing Data From Your Product. For Products involving devices that store files and/or personal data on hard drives, memory chips or the like, you must back up and store any data you wish to keep from your Product and remove any personal information from the Product before you send your Product to us for Trade-In. Likewise for Products you Purchase from WeBuyPhones and returned to WeBuyPhones in accordance with these Terms, you agree to remove any such data from the Product prior to returning the Product to WeBuyPhones. WeBuyPhones's standard practice is to remove all such data from the Product; however, WeBuyPhones makes no guarantee that it will do so. By sending WeBuyPhones the Product, you agree to release us from any claim as to the Product, the data stored in such Product, or any information on any media used in conjunction with the Product and which you send to WeBuyPhones (whether in connection with a Trade-In or a Purchase), or for such data's security, integrity, confidentiality, disclosure or use. WeBuyPhones is not responsible for: (a) any loss suffered by you due to any data that is not erased from the device and transferred to a third party, or (b) any loss of data after you submitted the Product to us.
- Product Inspection; Offer Recalculation. Your Trade-in Product must be received by WeBuyPhones within thirty (7) days after you accept the original offer provided by WeBuyPhones and complete the check- out process on the WeBuyPhones Website (the "Delivery Period") or the offer shall automatically expire. Packing and shipping recommendations provided to you by WeBuyPhones should be followed in order to avoid possible damage to or loss of the Product in transit. WeBuyPhones will inspect all Products that are received. WeBuyPhones has the option to accept or reject the Product, including without limitation, to reject any Product not conforming to the description you provided to us, any Product modified in such a way that it no longer conforms to the original factory specifications, any Product no longer complying with applicable laws or regulations and/or any Product damaged or lost in transit. If WeBuyPhones rejects the Product for any of these reasons, the original offer automatically expires and is rescinded. WeBuyPhones reserves the right to revoke the original offer and provide a revised offer for the Product if: (a) the Product and/or materials are not as described, (b) the Product is received by WeBuyPhones after the Delivery Period, and/or (c) WeBuyPhones receives Product(s) that are different from those identified when your offer was calculated. As described above, WeBuyPhones typically honors the offer price you receive for your Product on the Site for a period of thirty (7 days); sometimes for a longer period of time in connection with a temporary extended price-lock offer (each a "Price-Lock Offer"). Notwithstanding any Price-Lock Offer, WeBuyPhones always reserves the right to recalculate the original offer price and provide a revised offer for the Product if, during the Price-Lock Offer period, the market price for your Product has declined by more than thirty percent. WeBuyPhones shall determine the market price during such applicable period and whether there has been any such decline in its sole discretion. If you elect not to accept the recalculated offer price, your Product will be returned to you.
- Recalculated Product Offers after Inspection. In the event WeBuyPhones recalculates the offer it provided for the Product after it has been received and inspected for Trade-In, as described above, you shall have the option of accepting or rejecting the new offer. If you accept the new offer, you will be paid in normal course and in accordance with these service terms. If you reject the new offer, WeBuyPhones will return the Product to you at the address from which it was originally sent. WeBuyPhones will give you a period of five (5) days after WeBuyPhones presents you with a recalculated offer via email at the address you provided to accept or reject the new offer (the "New Offer Period"). WeBuyPhones will also remind you of the outstanding new offer one or more times during the New Offer Period. However, if the new offer is neither affirmatively accepted nor rejected by you during the New Offer Period, the new offer will be deemed to have been accepted by you and you will be paid the new offer price in the normal course and in accordance with these service terms. For the avoidance of doubt, your acceptance of the original offer and/or any new offer is final and you may not change your mind later about accepting such offer.
- Releasing Rights to Product. Once you send WeBuyPhones your Product for Trade-In, WeBuyPhones cannot and does not guarantee that it will be able to honor any request for return of the Product and/or any data or information contained in such Product. Of course, if WeBuyPhones rejects the Product or you do not accept any new offer for the Product pursuant to Sections 9 and 10 ("Return Circumstances"), your Product will be returned to you as set forth in Sections 9 and 10.
- Risk-Of-Loss. You remain responsible for the risk-of-loss for the Products sent to WeBuyPhones for Trade-In until delivery of the same to WeBuyPhones. You are responsible for any damages that may occur to your Product while in transit. WeBuyPhones is responsible for risk-of-loss when it opens the packaging containing your Product and ceases in the event WeBuyPhones returns your product to you for any reason. For the avoidance of doubt, in such event, risk of loss will be transferred to you once WeBuyPhones delivers the package to the carrier for return to you and you will bear the risk-of-loss while the Product is in transit.
If you return a Product to WeBuyPhones that you Purchased, you are responsible for the risk-of-loss for the Product until WeBuyPhones receives the Product. You are responsible for any damages that may occur to the Product while in transit back to WeBuyPhones.
- Passing of Title. Title to the applicable Product sent to WeBuyPhones for Trade-In passes to WeBuyPhones upon WeBuyPhones's acceptance of the Product for the original offer or the new offer, as applicable. If there is a Return Circumstance, title shall not pass and shall remain with you.
- Non-Transferable. Any offer by WeBuyPhones for your Product for Trade-In is non- transferable and not redeemable for any other consideration other than what is offered by WeBuyPhones.
- Promotions. From time to time, and at WeBuyPhones's sole discretion, WeBuyPhones may offer promotional programs as an incentive to customers. Promotions applicable to payments are applied as an increment to the final value of a customer's Product, but they are not considered a change in that final value. Promotional programs have explicitly defined terms, including but not limited to, expiration, usage per person and per transaction, and other limitations and restrictions. Unless otherwise stated, promotions must be applied by you before checkout. For the avoidance of doubt, once checkout is completed, promotions cannot be applied to the same transaction. WeBuyPhones reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel or refuse promotions.
- Accuracy of all Information. WeBuyPhones makes every effort to ensure the accuracy of all information you receive in relation to your Product. From time to time, however, there may be typographical errors, technical inaccuracies, pricing or other errors or omissions. As such, WeBuyPhones reserves the right, at any time prior to payment, to:(a) Correct an error. (b) Change the offer or cancel the Purchase prior to your receipt of the Product. In the event the Product has already been sent to WeBuyPhones for Trade-In, the changed offer will become a New Offer subject to the processes set forth in Section 9 and Section 10. Otherwise, the changed offer will be a re-issued original offer, which you may accept or reject. (c) Void a transaction. If the Product was already sent to WeBuyPhones, WeBuyPhones will be deemed to have rejected the Product resulting in a Return Circumstance subject to Section 11.
- Electronic Notices and Transactions. You agree to transact with us electronically, including without limitation, agreeing to terms and conditions or offering to sell your Product by electronic means. You authorize WeBuyPhones to provide you with terms and important notices about WeBuyPhones and your transactions to an email address you provide to us or by posting notices on an applicable page (or my account area) on www.Webuyphones.co.za. It is your duty to keep your email address accurate and up to date and to maintain a valid email address and to ensure that emails we send you are not filtered or stopped by spam filters or other types of email blocking functionalities.
