Introduction & Scope
Changes to the Agreement and Additional Terms
WE MAY CHANGE THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT FROM TIME TO TIME, WITH OR WITHOUT NOTICE TO YOU AND AT OUR SOLE DISCRETION, AND YOUR CONTINUED USE OF THE WEBSITE OR ANY SERVICES AFTER SUCH CHANGES TO THIS AGREEMENT HAVE BEEN POSTED CONSTITUTES ACCEPTANCE OF ALL SUCH CHANGES. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO REGULARLY REVIEW THIS AGREEMENT WHEN USING THE WEBSITE OR OUR SERVICES.
WeBuyClothes reserves the right to modify or terminate the Website and Service for any reason, without notice and at any time. WeBuyClothes reserves the right to alter this Agreement or other policies at any time, so please review the policies frequently. If WeBuyClothes makes a material change, then WeBuyClothes will notify you here by posting updates to this Agreement or by means WeBuyClothes deems appropriate. What constitutes a “material change” will be determined at WeBuyClothes’s sole discretion, in good faith, and using common sense and reasonable judgment.
1.WeBuyClothes is an online retailer
WeBuyClothes is an online retailer selling its own unique range of new ladies clothing under its own brand as well as second-hand clothing being uploaded by registered users (see section 3 underneath). Registered users may place orders for Items, which WeBuyClothes may accept or reject. Whether or not WeBuyClothes accepts an order depends on the availability of Items, correctness of the information relating to the Items (including without limitation the price) and receipt of payment or payment authorisation by WeBuyClothes for the Items.
NOTE: WeBuyClothes will indicate the acceptance of your order by delivering the Items to you, and only at that point will an agreement of sale between you and WeBuyClothes come into effect (the “Sale”). This is regardless of any communication from WeBuyClothes stating that your order or payment has been confirmed. WeBuyClothes will indicate the rejection of your order by cancelling it and, as soon as possible thereafter, refunding you for any amount already paid.
Orders may not be cancelled after receipt of payment of the Items by WeBuyClothes. After dispatch of your Items, you may cancel the Sale only in accordance with the Returns Policy.
Placing Items in a shopping basket without completing the purchase cycle does not constitute an order for such Items, and as such, Items may be removed from the shopping basket if stock is no longer available. You cannot hold WeBuyClothes liable if such Items are not available when you complete or attempt to complete the purchase cycle at a later stage.
You acknowledge that stock of all Items on offer is limited. In the case of Items for sale by WeBuyClothes, WeBuyClothes will take all reasonable efforts to monitor stock levels and ensure that when stock is no longer available, that offers thereof are discontinued on the Website. However, we cannot guarantee the availability of stock. When Items are no longer available after placing an order, WeBuyClothes will notify you and you will be entitled to a refund of the amount paid by you for such Items.
- 2.WeBuyClothes is a Marketplace
WeBuyClothes is also an online marketplace that allows users who comply with WeBuyClothes’s policies, to offer, sell, and buy certain Items within a fixed-price format. WeBuyClothes is not directly involved in the transaction between buyers and sellers, unless you purchase from us directly. WeBuyClothes has no control over the quality, safety, morality, or legality of any aspect of the items listed, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items, or the ability of buyers to pay for items. Except as stated in Listing and Selling (see Section 5), WeBuyClothes does not pre-screen users or the content or information provided by users. WeBuyClothes cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction.
Legal ownership of items purchased on WeBuyClothes is transferred by the seller to the buyer after a sale is completed. WeBuyClothes does not transfer nor is it involved in the transfer of legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer, except for items being sold from WeBuyClothes directly.

Fees and Termination
If WeBuyClothes terminates a listing or if the payment of your WeBuyClothes fees cannot be completed for any reason, you remain obligated to pay WeBuyClothes for all unpaid fees plus any interest or other charges, 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 or charging any payment method associated with your account). If you have a question or wish to dispute a charge, please email WeBuyClothes at email@example.com.
- 5. Listing and Selling
You may list and sell new and gently used women’s clothing items on the Website or on our mobile applications. You may not list or sell designer replicas or derivatives, including but not limited to items that are counterfeit, inauthentic, or not manufactured for retail sale by the designer whose name, logo, trademark, or design is represented in or on the item.
By listing an item for sale on the Website or any Services, you warrant and represent that (a) you are in compliance with all aspects of this Agreement and applicable laws, including in respect of all items; (b) you have the legal right to sell the item and to post all of the descriptions, graphics, photos, images and any other content related to your listing of the item; (c) the description and depiction of the item, including but not limited to any damage, size or measurements, are complete, truthful, and accurate; (d) the item is listed in the appropriate category; (e) the item is not priced significantly over a reasonable market price; (f) a reasonable market price can be determined for custom made or non-branded items; and (g) the item does not have more wear and/or damage than can be defined as Gently Used, including but not limited to: significant wear, rips, tears, discoloration, odor or broken hardware or components. Your listings may only include text descriptions, graphics, photos, images, and other content relevant to the sale of that item. All items must be listed in an appropriate category with relevant tags. Each unique item must have its own listing. In addition, certain items may be prohibited or restricted; you also need to make sure the sale of your item complies with all laws. If your listing does not comply, it may be removed. Please note that at this time only users based in the South Africa are eligible to list or sell on the Website or any Services.
You agree that we or our nominated agent may undertake any necessary credit checks on you and/or your credit card where applicable. In addition to any other rights we may have under this Agreement, if you fail to comply with this Clause, we may prevent you from using the Services on our website.
In addition, WeBuyClothes reserves the right to designate certain items as Final Sale (including but not limited to clearance,) or auction items where an item had not been so within 10 days after you have listed it on the Website. The item will then be subject to the terms and conditions of the auction as set out under the heading “Auction” underneath.
The sale of any items outside of women’s woman clothing items is prohibited (including but not limited to intimates, technology equipment and accessories, household goods, men’s and children’s clothing/shoes/accessories) and is not covered by our Return Policy.
When we designate an item to be auctioned, such item will be auctioned online via our website for a period of 7 Days. The price that an item achieve by means of the highest good during the auction will be subject to the seller’s acceptance within 3 days from the closing date of the auction. An email will be sent to you immediately on closing of the auction informing you of the highest bid achieved for your auction item and you will have 3 days to confirm acceptance thereof by sending us an email to that effect or informing us that you do not accept. If we do not receive an email from you within the 3 days, we will be entitled to accept that you do not accept the bid. If the seller accepts the highest bid, the transaction is treated as any other transaction concluded through our WEBSITE and is subject to the same terms and conditions.
If no bid is received during the auction period or you do not accept the highest bid, your item will be removed from the website.
All sales are binding. The seller is responsible for accurately listing their items, and the buyer is responsible for reading the item description before making a purchase. WeBuyClothes will collect the items sold from the seller and deliver it to the buyer within 7 days from the date of the transaction, unless there is an exceptional circumstance. The buyer is obligated to make payment for items purchased by means of electronic funds transfer before delivery of the items can take place, unless there is an exceptional circumstance. See our Cancellation Policy.
If you do not complete a sale or purchase, your account and all listings may be suspended and removed from the Website and any Services at WeBuyClothes’s sole discretion. You may request your account and listings be reinstated, which WeBuyClothes may do in its sole discretion.
The price stated in each item listing description must be an accurate representation of the sale price. Sellers may not alter the item’s price after a sale for the purpose of avoiding WeBuyClothes transaction or commission fees, misrepresent the item’s location, or use another user’s account without permission.
Offers to buy or sell outside of the Website or Services are a potential fraud risk for both buyers and sellers and are not protected by the WeBuyClothes Promise, the Agreement, or other buyer/seller protection programs. Additionally, these offers may be an attempt to avoid WeBuyClothes transaction fees. This is unfair to other sellers, violates the Agreement, and will result in account termination. You may not exchange personal information or engage in any other activities to transact with another in any manner to avoid any transaction fee. You may not manipulate the price of any item or fees owed to WeBuyClothes when using the Website or any Services.
We are committed to providing secure online payment facilities. All transactions are encrypted using appropriate encryption technology.
Payment can be made for Items via –
– credit card: where payment is made by credit card, we may require additional information in order to authorise and/or verify the validity of payment. In such cases we reserve the right to withhold delivery until such time as the additional information is received by us and authorisation is obtained by us for the amounts. If we do not receive authorisation, your order for the Items will be cancelled. You warrant that you are fully authorised to use the credit card supplied for purposes of paying the Items.
