Listing

You must be legally allowed to sell the item(s) that you list for sale on Shizzle Dogs website.

You must accurately describe your item(s) and all terms of sale on the listing page of Shizzle Dogs website.

Your listings may only include text descriptions, graphics, pictures, and other content relevant to the sale of that item. All listed items must be listed in an appropriate category. Each listing must accurately and completely describe the item(s) for sale in that listing.

If you are listing multiple items on one listing, all items must be identical with the exception of size, color and variations. You may use the drop down menu to display different sizes, colors and variations in one listing. Each unique item must have its own listing.

Binding Sale: All sales are binding. If you, as a seller, receive an order, you are obligated to 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 your listing (b) you cannot authenticate the buyer’s identity (c) the buyer fails to pay for the item once purchased.

Termination: Without limiting any other remedies, Shizzle Dogs, without notice, may suspend or terminate your account if Shizzle Dogs suspects, in its sole discretion, that you (by information, investigation, conviction, settlement, insurance or escrow investigation, or otherwise) have violated any of Shizzle Dogs policies set out in this agreement, the privacy policy, or any other policy documents or Shizzle Dogs guidelines, or you have engaged in an improper or fraudulent activity in connection with Shizzle Dogs or if Shizzle Dogs receives complaints from users and upon investigating finds that these complaints are valid and deemed unacceptable for use of the Shizzle Dogs website.

If a seller issues a refund to a buyer, a seller has up to 45 days from the transaction date to request a refund for the final value fee. Shizzle Dogs  retains the right to contact the buyer in a seller refund transaction request to verify any details of the refund requested. Refunds issued by the seller due to the inability of the seller to complete the transaction, due to a lack of inventory or otherwise, will not result in a final value fee refund from Shizzle Dogs. After 45 days from the transaction date, any final value refund request will not be honored.
