Website terms and conditions: marketplace for goods to businesses; seller side

Not yet reviewed

These are terms and conditions for a website that acts as a marketplace, connecting businesses selling physical products with other business buyers.

It is suitable if your business:

  • simply introduces sellers and buyers - it does not hold stock or fulfil orders
  • provides payment facilities and collects taxes and fees, reimbursing the seller the net sales value
  • provides an advertising service to sellers

Your sellers probably use your site because they do not have a facility for taking money online, because they can reach buyers that otherwise they would could not, or because your marketing service is better than they could achieve.

These T&C:

  • are suitable for connecting businesses in local or international markets
  • as far as possible, insulate you from conflict between sellers and buyers
  • include strong legal protection against malicious use of your website and misuse of your intellectual property

Use this document for sites such as ones that:

  • connects manufacturers with wholesalers or retailers in new markets
  • help businesses to recycle used, unwanted equipment by providing a marketplace via a forum

Website terms and conditions template: marketplace for events; buyer side

Not yet reviewed

These are terms for a website that acts as an intermediary between event goers and event organisers or ticket resellers.

Your business is likely to publish event information, check customer qualifications (such as age) and confer with organisers. You may promote, advertise, or undertake other marketing tasks.

This document serves two main purposes:

  • First it gives you legal protection from potential problems as a result of disputes between the event organiser and the ticket buyer.
  • Secondly, it sets out how your website works to benefit the event organiser or ticket reseller. Standard terms for all ticket sellers allow a buyer to return to your site and buy again from a different seller without the terms or process being noticeably different.

The nature of the event for which the tickets are being sold is not important to the document. Your site could specialise in one type of event or multiple ones. The nature of the events to which the tickets are sold could be as diverse as:

  • sporting events
  • concerts, festivals and live music performances
  • theatre shows
  • consumer exhibitions (such as food exhibitions)
  • business events (such as motivational or training courses)

Note: this template is not suitable if you sell tickets directly yourself. You will need our website terms for a ticketing agency instead or as well as these ones.

Note: you will need an additional set of terms with ticket sellers or event organisers – use Marketplace for services: seller side.

Website terms and conditions template: marketplace for property

Not yet reviewed

These are terms and conditions of use for a website that advertises residential or commercial property for sale or rent, or spare space or holiday accommodation for let.

Your business model may be based on advertising, charging property advertisers or searchers a subscription fee for access, or taking a percentage of the value of the sale or rent.

The template provides an option for you to give members access to tradesmen or professionals with whom you have negotiated a discounted price or other deal.

Note in law: sales of real property are excluded from the Consumer Contracts (ICAC) Regulations, but intermediary businesses like estate agents are not. Neither do the Regulations exclude the application of the Estate Agents Act. This document has been drawn so as to cover most forms of property introduction, but we do not know enough about your business to be able to give a guarantee that this document is completely suitable. Please contact us if you would like more information.

Marketplace provisions

We define a marketplace site as one where the website operator is an intermediary, providing a platform from which someone else sells goods or services to buyers who come to the site.

Because each marketplace website has its own business model, we provide separate agreements for terms with buyers and sellers. You should therefore buy a pair of documents: one dealing with terms for your sellers and one dealing with terms for the buyers.

Seller side documents vary far less than buyer side documents so we have not provided exact matches. Only you know which of each side best suits your business model. If you need help choosing, please ask.

We offer several options for sale of services because that word covers such a vast range.

We try to avoid you being an agent in law, but rather a publisher. However, the range of services you offer and the fact that you collect payment may well categorise you as an agent. We know of no court cases on this point.

We do our utmost to insulate you from problems between a seller and a buyer. We push seller obligations onto your sellers and direct a buyer to his or her seller, leaving you as clean as possible.

However, as an intermediary, you still have to comply with the CC(ICAC) Regulations. We have covered that of course.

All market place documents cover:

  • a framework of rules as to how a seller places a product or service with you
  • the fact that you do not hold stock
  • e-commerce: prices, your remuneration options, return of goods, taxes
  • your payment options: a commission basis, a transaction fee basis, through advertising, or not at all
  • upload by sellers of their own product pages or product advertisements
  • joint advertising to sellers
  • options for regular sellers (for example, ones that operate their business entirely from your site), and one-off sales

The law in these terms and conditions documents

The law in these T&C is largely common law that deals with the basics of contracts.

Where your end customer is a consumer, i.e. a private individual, you need to comply with the Consumer Contracts (ICAC) 2013 Regulations, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 and Alternative Dispute Regulations 2015.

Where your customer is a business person, our templates allow you to comply with the Sale of Goods Acts (1979 and 1994).
