Access and Use of the Service
Services Description: The Service is a technology platform that provides an online social marketplace in which consumers and boutiques can list and sell their fashion items ("Items"), and buyers can browse and purchase Items.

Purchase and Sale Transactions
Fees: PUT YOUR FEES IN HERE Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in U.S. dollars. Taxes; Shipping Costs; Buyer Responsibility: Items purchased by and shipped to Buyers in locations in U.S. or Canada may be subject to applicable state, provincial or local sales or use tax, privilege tax or similar transaction-based taxes ("State Tax"). Items purchased by and shipped to Buyers in locations outside of U.S. and Canada may also be subject to applicable taxes, including value added taxes (collectively with State Tax, "Taxes"). The amount of Taxes is based on a number of factors, including but not limited to the type of Items purchased, the Buyers designated delivery address, and/or the location of the Seller.
Buyers are responsible for paying the applicable purchase price for a purchased Item to the Seller, as well as any shipping costs (which are detailed in the Fee Policy) and paying applicable Taxes and/or duties associated with the purchase and sale of any Items through the Service. For Buyers in the U.S., the rate of Tax applied to purchases of taxable Items is a combined rate based on the state and local rates of the address where the Items are delivered to or shipped from.
Tax and shipping costs are not included in the listed price for any Items listed by Sellers through the Service but will be displayed to Buyers before confirmation of any purchase. Estimated Taxes: When a Buyer chooses to make an offer an estimated amount of Tax will be displayed. The estimated amount of Taxes is an estimate of applicable Taxes based on several factors, including the offer price, Buyers designated delivery address and rates of Taxes in effect at that time. If the offer price is accepted, the amount a Buyer is charged will include the amount of estimated Taxes displayed when the offer is submitted. If there is a counteroffer from the Seller, the amount a Buyer is charged will include the amount of estimated Taxes displayed when the counteroffer is accepted. The amount of Taxes may change and be updated when the order is finalized and completed through the Service.
Marketplace Collection; Taxes; Commissions; Seller Responsibility: Gunshepherd.com will collect Taxes from Buyers on behalf of Sellers where we are legally obligated to do so, including (1) those states that have enacted legislation requiring marketplaces, like Gunshepherd.com, to collect Taxes, and (2) those states that have agreed to allow Gunshepherd.com to collect Taxes on behalf of Sellers. In these states, the amount of Taxes collected will be submitted by Gunshepherd.com to the appropriate taxing authority on behalf of Sellers. In those states where Gunshepherd.com does not collect Taxes on behalf of Sellers, Sellers are responsible for collecting and submitting any Taxes to the appropriate taxing authority in accordance with relevant state or local tax laws.
Sellers are responsible for paying GunshepHerd’s commission as well as all taxes imposed or measured by Seller’s net income, net profits, income, profits, and/or revenues associated with the sale of any Items through the Service.
