SERVICES

Through the Site, Vinted provides Users a virtual space, including the systematized Catalogues and the Forum, which allows them to participate in the online exchange and/or sale and/or purchase of Items, and to use other Additional Services provided by the Site. Users are able to upload their Items onto the appropriate Catalogue on the Site, to exchange, buy, sell Items, correspond by sending private messages, communicate publicly in the Forum and use other Additional Services provided on the Site. 

Becoming a User, uploading Items to the appropriate Catalogues, viewing the Items and communicating privately or publicly on Vinted is free. Vinted charges certain Transaction related fees, as detailed in the Payment and Shipping section of our Terms and Conditions.

When you access the Site through a mobile device, your wireless carrier’s standard charges, data rates and other fees may apply. In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain mobile services may be prohibited or restricted by your carrier, and not all mobile services may work with all carriers or devices.

Site Accounts are constituent parts of the Site. As editor of both the Site and User Accounts, Vinted may place the same information as on the Site on the Site Accounts. 

Vinted is a venue

Vinted acts as a venue to allow Users who comply with Vinted's policies to offer, sell, buy, exchange certain goods and communicate privately and publicly. Vinted is not directly involved in the transaction between Sellers and Purchaser. As a result, Vinted 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 Purchasers to pay for items. Vinted does not pre-screen users or the content or information provided by users. Vinted cannot ensure that a Purchaser or Seller will actually complete a transaction. Consequently, Vinted does not transfer legal ownership of items from the Seller to the Purchaser. Vinted cannot guarantee the true identity, age, and nationality of a User. Vinted encourages you to communicate directly with potential transaction partners through the tools available on the Site. 

You agree that Vinted is a venue and as such is not responsible or liable for any content, for example, data, text, information, usernames, graphics, images, photographs, profiles, audio, video, items, and links posted by you, other Users, or outside parties on Vinted. You use the Vinted service at your own risk.

Placement of Items and Catalogues

The Seller, when uploading an Item into the appropriate Catalogue, must complete the Item placement questionnaire and: describe the Item as exhaustively as possible; indicate defects of the Item, if any; indicate whether or not a warranty is provided for the Item; indicate warranty terms, if any; and indicate the Item price. If the Seller does not indicate Item payment and Delivery conditions, this means the Purchaser is entitled to make an offer to the Seller on the Item payment and Delivery conditions. Only clothes, footwear and accessories may be uploaded to the Catalogue; other goods are not allowed to be subject of a Transaction. 

Items uploaded to the Catalogues must be both described in the Item placement questionnaire and photographed. When uploading an Item to a Catalogue, at least one good quality photo of the Item must be placed next to the Item description. It is prohibited to upload photos found on the Internet and uploaded photos must reflect the real quality and external appearance of the Item and show the presence of defects on the Item. Assessment of photo quality is by nature subjective and is at Vinted’s entire discretion. There is no limit on the quantity of Items that may be uploaded to the Site Catalogues; however, it is prohibited to upload the same Item more than once.

Once the Purchaser and the Seller agree on the Item sold and the price, the Purchaser is required to pay for the ordered Item pursuant to the payment terms set forth below under “Payment and Shipping,” and to accept the Item if it complies with the description provided by the Seller. The Seller, by uploading the Item, is deemed to represent and confirm that the Item complies with the description Seller provides and that such description is complete. The placement of Items in the Site Catalogues is free. The Seller, after uploading the Item, shall be entitled to remove it at any time unless he/she is a professional seller. An offer to sell may be retracted at any time prior to its acceptance, but not after.

Items on the Site are purchased and sold by making the Transaction directly between the Purchaser and the Seller and only they are responsible for such Transaction. Except for Vinted’s administrative role regarding payment and shipping, as described below, Vinted is not a party to, does not participate in, and bears no responsibility or liability for, the making or performance of, or otherwise in connection with, such Transaction.

Users are also entitled to exchange/swap Items. In this case, Users make the exchange Transaction directly where Vinted is not a party to, does not participate in, and bears no responsibility or liability for, the making or performance of, or otherwise in connection with, such exchange Transaction.

Vinted provides Payment and Shipping services to facilitate Transactions. Sellers offering items for financial consideration may not refuse to Transact with Purchasers to avoid using the Payment and Shipping services made available by Vinted. Sellers are prohibited from voiding a Transaction with the aim of performing the same Transaction without using the Payment and Shipping services, be it with the same Purchaser or with another Purchaser. A Purchaser and a Seller may, prior to Transacting, mutually agree to opt out of the Payment and Shipping services offered by Vinted and mutually agree payment and shipping methods at their discretion and also at their own risk.

While Vinted is not party to the Transactions, we aim to facilitate a unique and friendly experience for all Users. If a Purchaser receives the wrong item, one that is faulty, fake or significantly not as described by the Seller, said Purchaser should notify our Community Support team using our Help Center within 2 days of Item delivery. We will hold payments if they have been made via our Payment Services while we encourage Seller and Purchaser to find an amicable solution. We cannot guarantee that such a solution may be found. If a refund is made, it will be for the Item value only, unless the shipping fees have not yet been incurred.

Forum

Every User and Visitor, before using the Forum, must read and agree to comply with the Forum regulations here

Both Users and Visitors may read the Forum, whereas the ability to post messages to the Forum is reserved to Users. Users, after registering in the Forum, may create themes using their user names or anonymously. Vinted shall not be responsible if, due to the User’s or any third party’s actions, or any actions beyond Vinted’s reasonable control, the identity of a User who posted a message or theme is made public.

With respect to the use of the Forum, Vinted strictly prohibits, and you agree not to engage in: the use of swear words; insulting other Users and Visitors; incitement to crimes and offenses; discrimination, hate speech or violent language of any kind, including such language related to race, ethnic origin or nationality; false or malicious news; libel or slander or other defamatory allegations; offenses against individual privacy; the uploading of indecent materials or the use of the Forum in any matter that is inconsistent with applicable laws or such as to injure Vinted’s business reputation. 

Further, it is strictly prohibited in the Forum to publish advertising messages, place links to other websites, offer goods for purchase and sale, announce or organize auctions for Transactions of Items, or perform other commercial actions. Advertisements regarding personal Items to be sold and information about any services may be placed only in the special column referred to as “Advertisement Corner”. 

Private Messages

If a User or a Visitor sends Private Messages to another User, he or she must ensure that he or she is not sending: (i) messages or information of an advertising character; (ii) spam or content disseminating viruses or swarms; (iii) mass messages of any other type (e.g., when one message is sent to more than five Users or when the same message is copied and sent to the Users who have not requested such information); (iv) messages containing texts or content that are unlawful or that would otherwise contravene any applicable laws, common moral precepts or public order, or messages that would be insulting;  or (v) messages that harm, attempt to harm or may harm other Users, this Site or Vinted’s business or reputation, or would be otherwise in conflict with these Terms and Conditions. 

Feedback Exchange Among Users

A User is entitled to write comments about another User, only if a Transaction has been made between them. In all cases, the feedback of one User related to another should be just, honest and respectful. Lies and insults against each other and the publication of false information through any of the Services provided on this Site or otherwise by Vinted is strictly prohibited. 

Vinted is entitled to remove from the Site comments that are false, insulting or violate these Terms and Conditions or the rights of other Users, including Users who did not have the right to post comments under the provisions set forth in these Terms and Conditions. Visitors shall not be able to post comments regarding Users.

News and Communications

Vinted is entitled at any time to publish on the Site new short-term or long-term proposals, competitions, games or sweepstakes (collectively, “Contests”) complying with U.S. law, to propose new Services, and to amend these Terms and Conditions accordingly. In the case of inconsistencies between these Terms and Conditions and special terms and conditions published on the Site regarding any of the foregoing, such as regulations, instructions or descriptions about such Contests, the latter shall prevail.

Subject to the terms set forth in the Privacy Policy , Vinted shall have the right to send Users email messages, using the email address provided by Users at the time of registration, regarding the Services and any new proposed services, or any other relevant matters that in Vinted’s view may assist in enhancing Users’ experience using the Services. Such messages may include reminders, invitations, suggestions and descriptions of existing, new or future Services as well as marketing and promotional content.

Vinted is entitled to receive remuneration for the Services according to the prices indicated in the Pricelist, available here . You acknowledge and agree that Vinted is entitled, at its sole discretion, to change the Pricelist. Vinted shall post such changes on the Site. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in U.S. Dollars.

In addition to the payment of the applicable purchase price for a purchased item and remuneration for paid Vinted Services (as indicated in the Pricelist ), Purchasers are responsible for paying all shipping costs to Vinted and all applicable sales, excise, import, export, VAT and other taxes or duties associated with the purchase and sale of any items through the Service.

All such shipping costs, remunerations for paid Vinted Services and taxes are not included in the listed price for any items made available from Sellers through the Service, but will be displayed to Purchasers before confirmation of any purchase. The Purchaser is responsible for the proper and timely payment of the ordered Item in accordance with the conditions communicated by the Seller in public or according to the mutually agreed conditions. 

Sellers are responsible for all income taxes associated with the purchase and sale of any items through the Service. All shipping costs paid will be retained by Vinted. The amount to be received by the Seller is shown at the time of item upload.

If you make any purchase through the Site using a credit card, you must have a valid credit card on file with Vinted. Vinted will (through a third party credit card processor) store your credit card information. Vinted will verify your credit card information (including expiration date and billing address), but will not charge your credit card unless you conduct an activity through the Site that requires your credit card to be charged. By agreeing to pay for a Transaction with your credit card, you authorize Vinted to charge your credit card.

For Transactions using Vinted’s payment and shipping services, following confirmation of a Transaction through the Service and payment of the required amount by Purchaser, Vinted will notify the Seller and send to the Seller’s address indicated in the Seller’s account information a pre-paid shipping label for Seller to ship the purchased Item to the Purchaser. The Seller must ship the purchased Item using the shipping label (and corresponding shipping method) required by Vinted within three days after receipt of such shipping label. Upon receipt of Item Confirmation, Vinted will credit Seller’s account in an amount equal to the purchase price received from the Purchaser. Purchaser must confirm his acceptance within 2 days after receipt of the purchased Item. If Purchaser does not respond within such time period, the purchased Item will be deemed accepted. Any funds credited to Seller’s account may be redeemed by Seller through a permitted third party payment provider.
