We are not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers. The price and other terms of any sale remain subject to direct negotiation between the buyer and the seller. As a result, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the items advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to buy items. We cannot and do not control whether or not sellers will complete the sale of items they offer or whether buyers will complete the purchase of items. In addition, note that there are risks of dealing with people in other countries, minors or people acting under false pretence. We encourage you to communicate directly with a trading partner to help you evaluate the other party.
