A. Cash and Other Payments Determined by Users. A buyer may, by agreement with the seller, elect to make payment by cash, check or other payment method accepted by the seller. Such payments are made directly between the buyer and the seller when they meet in person to complete their purchase and sale transaction, pursuant to terms they determine. RBD Marketplace is not a party to such transactions, and does not facilitate such transactions, refunds or returns in any manner.
B. RBD Marketplace Payment Solution. A buyer and seller may instead pay with and accept credit cards and other electronic payment methods (each an “Electronic Payment Method”) through the RBD Marketplace Service. RBD Marketplace has integrated with Stripe, a payment processing service, to allow sellers to accept certain Electronic Payment Methods from buyers using Stripe’s payment processing services (“RBD Marketplace Payment Solution”). Buyers who wish to use the RBD Marketplace Payment Solution must register an Electronic Payment Method with RBD Marketplace, and sellers must enroll for the service through Stripe. Enrollment in and usage of the RBD Marketplace Payment Solution is voluntary, so buyers should note that some sellers may not accept Electronic Payment Methods, or may only accept Electronic Payment Methods for certain transactions. RBD Marketplace, in its sole discretion, may from time to time impose limits on your ability to make and/or receive payments through the RBD Marketplace Payment Solution. Additionally, Stripe may impose its own limits and limitations on a seller’s use of the RBD Marketplace Payment Solution. For instance, a seller’s enrollment in the RBD Marketplace Payment Solution is subject to Stripe’s confirmation that the seller meets Stripe’s enrollment criteria. Sellers should refer to Section 2(d) below for information about the impact of failing to meet Stripe’s enrollment criteria.

RBD Marketplace is not a party to the Stripe Services Agreement and will not be liable or responsible for the payment services provided by Stripe. If Stripe discontinues providing services in connection with the RBD Marketplace Payment Solution, you authorize Stripe to share your payment method information with an alternative third-party payment processor that is or will be integrated into the RBD Marketplace Payment Solution.

When a seller accepts a buyer’s offer to purchase an item to be shipped, the seller must print the pre-paid shipping label and mail the item within 3 business days of accepting the offer. The seller may cancel an accepted offer up until the package is initially scanned for mailing. The buyer’s payment, minus RBD Marketplace’s nationwide posting fee, will be released to the seller typically 3 business days after delivery, provided that no Buyer Protection claims are made by the buyer. Buyer Protection claims may result in delay and/or cancellation of payment being released to the seller.

For these items, the buyer is solely responsible to pay the cost of shipping the item from the seller.
