Buying and Selling:
When buyers and sellers reach an agreement on a listing, they may have various options to complete the transaction. If the buyer and seller agree to use payment methods outside of iBidd Services, such as cash on delivery (COD), check, or other mutually agreed upon methods facilitated by the seller, and the payments are made directly between the buyer and seller as per their agreed terms, iBidd is not involved in these transactions. iBidd does not facilitate or assist with refunds or returns related to such transactions.
Alternatively, iBidd provides the option for buyers to make purchases using credit cards or other electronic payment methods through iBidd Services if the listing party has chosen this process. Certain transactions may only be conducted using iBidd Payment options. All purchases made using other payment options are directly between you and the other party, governed by the Terms and any additional terms agreed upon by both parties. iBidd is not a party to these transactions, and the responsibility for facilitating such transactions, as well as providing refunds or returns, rests with the listing party unless explicitly stated otherwise.
iBidd Refund Policy:
iBidd Tokens are non-refundable. iBidd does not assume responsibility for refunds in transactions between buyers and sellers, except in cases where the purchase was processed and shipped through iBidd, and the buyer opted for iBidd Buyer's Protection (subject to applicable terms and conditions).
iBidd Buyers Protection:
iBidd's Buyer's Protection is specifically designed to provide coverage for purchases made through iBidd payment gateway and shipped via iBidd. Any transactions or processes conducted outside of iBidd are not covered by the iBidd buyer protection, and iBidd assumes no responsibility for the buyer or seller in such cases.
Please take note that electronics listings lacking a serial number are not eligible for coverage under iBidd Buyer's Protection.
With iBidd Buyer's Protection, buyers are assured of receiving the item as described. If the item does not match the description, iBidd will initiate a refund to the buyer after the item is returned and verified by the seller. Should the return process exceed 14 business days, the transaction will be closed, and the seller will receive the funds.
iBidd Buyer's Protection remains in effect until proof of delivery is provided, with an additional 3-day extension if the buyer scans the seller's barcode.
Sellers hold the responsibility for ensuring the accuracy and condition of all listed items. iBidd retains the right to address claims related to improper listings and defective items.
iBidd Payment Solution:
By listing, making, or receive payments for Listings using the iBidd Payment Solution (if chosen at the time of listing), you acknowledge and agree to comply with all relevant service fees. iBidd reserves the right to modify these service fees by posting any changes and the effective date within these terms.
To make or accept payments using the iBidd Payment Solution, it is mandatory to maintain an account with iBidd's designated payment processor, currently Stripe, Inc. ("Stripe"), as the Payment Gateway. If you wish to utilize this feature, you must enroll for the service through Stripe. By enrolling, you enter into a separate agreement with Stripe, governed by the terms of the Stripe Connected Account Agreement, which includes the Stripe Terms of Service (collectively, the "Stripe Services Agreement").

Please be aware that your application to use the iBidd Payment Solution must be accepted by the Payment Provider before you can receive sales proceeds via the iBidd Payment Solution. Failure to set up a Payment Provider account within 30 days after completing a sale processed through the iBidd Payment Solution, or if your application is rejected by the Payment Provider, may result in the disabling or restriction of your ability to receive sales proceeds via the iBidd Payment Solution.
It is important to note that your right and/or ability to receive sales proceeds via the iBidd Payment Solution may be revoked, disabled, or limited if any purchase or sale violates these Terms, including the guidelines and restrictions outlined in the Prohibited Items, Services, or Products section.
Once a purchase is made, the buyer's payment, minus any applicable iBidd fees, will be held in escrow and released to the seller either after mutual agreement between both parties or after 7 business days from the delivery of the purchased item to the buyer, provided there are no Buyer Protection claims made by the buyer. In case of Buyer Protection claims, the release of payment to the seller may be delayed or canceled. Sellers authorize the Payment Provider to deduct any fees incurred from their account for using the Services and pay them to iBidd.
Please review and adhere to the Buyer Protection Policies and Guidelines referenced in this section to ensure a smooth payment process and transaction experience.
You are solely responsible for complying with any sales, use, duty, or other governmental taxes or fees related to your purchases or sales through the iBidd Services.

Guidelines for Law Enforcement Agency:
If you are a law enforcement agency, iBidd may work with you to assist in on-going matters related to alleged violations of the law, please contact iBidd at:
Please read the following section carefully because iBidd requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with iBidd and limits the way you can seek relief from iBidd, unless you opt out of arbitration by following the instructions set forth below. No class or representative actions or arbitration's are allowed under this arbitration agreement. In addition, arbitration precludes you from suing in court or having a jury trial.
No Representative Actions. You and iBidd agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms, or our iBidd Services is personal to you and iBidd, and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual action, and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. The limitations imposed by this section apply to, but are in no way limited to, class action refund claims brought by a class of taxpayers against iBidd related to taxes collected and remitted in good faith efforts at compliance with state and local marketplace facilitator or marketplace provider laws. Nothing in this section will be construed to prohibit a buyer from filing a refund claim with the seller or applicable state and local tax authority as permitted by law.
Arbitration of Disputes Except for small claims disputes in which you or iBidd seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or iBidd seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and iBidd waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our iBidd Services resolved in court. Instead, for any dispute or claim that you have against iBidd or relating in any way to the Services, you agree to first contact iBidd and attempt to resolve the claim informally by sending a written notice of your claim to:
The Notice must include your name, your residence address, your email address, your telephone number, and, if you have registered for an iBidd account, the email address your account is registered under if it is different from your current email address; describe the nature and basis of the claim; and set forth the specific relief sought. Our notice to you will be similar in form to that described above. If you and iBidd cannot reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after such Notice is received, then either party may submit the dispute to binding arbitration administered by JAMS or, under the limited circumstances set forth above, in court. All disputes submitted to JAMS will be resolved through confidential, binding arbitration before one arbitrator. Arbitration proceedings will be held in Suffolk County, Massachusetts unless you are a consumer, in which case you may elect to hold the arbitration at the JAMS office closest to your residence. For purposes of this Section, a "consumer" means a person using the Services for personal, family, or household purposes. Additionally, arbitrations may be conducted telephonically or via video conference for disputes alleging damages less than $10,000. You and iBidd agree that arbitrations will be held in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures ("JAMS Rules"). The most recent version of the JAMS Rules is available on the JAMS website and are hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the JAMS Rules or waive your opportunity to read the JAMS Rules and waive any claim that the JAMS Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
You and iBidd agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce, and that the enforceability of this Section will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the "FAA"), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court, including the power to determine whether a dispute may be arbitrated. The arbitrator may conduct only an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual's claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding, or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
The arbitration will allow for the discovery or exchange of non-privileged information relevant to the dispute. The arbitrator, iBidd, and you will maintain the confidentiality of any arbitration proceedings, judgments, and awards, including, but not limited to, all information gathered, prepared, and presented for purposes of the arbitration or related to the dispute(s) therein. The arbitrator will have the authority to make appropriate rulings to safeguard confidentiality unless the law provides to the contrary. The duty of confidentiality does not apply to the extent that disclosure is necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy or in connection with a judicial challenge to an arbitration award or its enforcement, or to the extent that disclosure is otherwise required by law or judicial decision.
You and iBidd agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and iBidd will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by IBidd, iBidd will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and iBidd agree that either the state or federal courts of the State of Delaware in the United States sitting in Kent County, Delaware or the state or federal courts of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the United States sitting in Suffolk County, Massachusetts have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
Any claim arising out of or related to these Terms, or our iBidd Services must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently time barred, which means that you and iBidd will not have the right to assert the claim.
You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within 30 days after the date you first accepted the terms of this Section by mail to:
To be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and address and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve disputes in accordance and within the Governing Law Venue below.
If any portion of this Section is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (a) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these Terms; (b) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section or the parties' ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Section; and (c) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Further, if any part of this Section is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section will be enforceable. If you are a consumer, the provisions of this Section will be modified to the extent necessary to conform to the JAMS Consumer Arbitration Minimum Standards.
Governing Law Venue:
Any dispute arising from these Terms and your use of the Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of Delaware, except to the extent preempted by U.S. federal law, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of Delaware or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction.

Sale of personal information:
iBidd respects your privacy and have never sold our users’ personal information as most people understand that term. Recent laws, such as the CCPA, provide California state residents various rights over their personal information and define terms like “sale” much more broadly than the common interpretation of the term. For example, sharing user IP addresses with advertising platforms in order to show relevant advertising, is now considered a “sale” under CCPA.

Under the CCPA, California residents have consumer rights including the right to access specific information and data portability; the right to request deletion of personal information; and the right to opt out of the “sale” of personal information (collectively “Rights”). iBidd is extending these Rights to all our users in the United States, and they are described above in more detail. In sum, the Rights, and the methods for submitting requests are as follows:
• CONSUMER RIGHT METHODS FOR SUBMITTING REQUESTS
• RIGHT OF ACCESS TO SPECIFIC INFORMATION AND DATA PORTABILITY RIGHTS
• USER SETTINGS AT IBIDD.COM
• RIGHT TO REQUEST DELETION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
• RIGHT TO OPT OUT OF A “SALE” OF PERSONAL INFORMATION, AS “SALE” IS DEFINED UNDER THE CCPA
• “DO NOT SELL MY PERSONAL INFORMATION”
California residents also have a right not to be discriminated against for the misuse of their Rights. to notify iBidd regarding your rights Please send notice to:
Nevada law permits residents of Nevada to opt-out of data sales by iBidd. A “sale” under Nevada law means the exchange of personal identifiable information for monetary consideration to a person for that person to license or sell that personal identifiable information to additional persons. IBIDD does not sell your personal information under Nevada law. However, IBIDD is offering all its users the right to opt out of the sale of personal information under the CCPA, which iBidd believes contains a broader definition of “sale.”
