Terms and Conditions


Responsibilities of the Marketplace Seller 

  1. Accurate listing: The Marketplace Seller agrees to accurately list all item information and descriptions including, but not limited to, the proper categorization of international editions, instructor editions, and annotated instructor editions using book traits. fThe Marketplace Seller will make note of any differences regarding content (including exercises and problems) when listing international, instructor’s, or annotated editions. The Marketplace Seller also will not misrepresent different editions, publication years, or other information with the intent of misleading buyers to a version other than what they are searching for. Proper usage of book traits is critical.
  2. Ownership of items: The Marketplace Seller warrants that the Marketplace Seller the legal owner of all items listed in the Marketplace Seller’s inventory.
  3. Checking for new orders: It is the marketplace seller’s responsibility to log in and verifies whether or not new orders were received. Reliance solely on automated order notifications and order files does not eclipse the seller’s responsibility to log in and verify the receipt of new orders.
  4. Order confirmation: Orders will be confirmed no later than 2 business days (excluding holidays) from the time they are placed. Orders that are not confirmed within this time frame are subject to cancellation at Aurrii’s discretion. It is the Marketplace Seller’s responsibility to log in to their account and verify that each order has been confirmed within 2 business days regardless of the method you use for confirming orders, or the order will be canceled. Repeated neglect regarding order confirmation could result in account suspension until the problem is resolved. In extreme cases, account termination could result.
  5. Order processing: The quick and accurate fulfillment of orders is required within 2 business days of order confirmation. Marketplace Sellers are required to log into their accounts every day to check for new orders. The minimum requirement for order processing is the fulfillment of 85% of orders placed.
  6. Cancellations: Orders that cannot be fulfilled must be canceled within 2 business days. A refund must be issued immediately to customers who have had their orders canceled. An excessive amount of cancellations may result in account suspension until any issues are resolved.
  7. Returns: Marketplace sellers are required to accept returns within 30 days of the order date. Any buyer who returns a book due to an error on the Marketplace Seller’s part (i.e., wrong book shipped, faulty packaging resulting in damage or loss, item not as described, item shipped past deadline, etc.) shall not be charged shipping, handling, or restocking fees and will be issued a full refund. However, modest restocking fees no greater than 15% of item cost may be charged when the reason for return is no fault of the Marketplace Seller (i.e., buyer changed his or her mind, buyer ordered incorrect book, class cancellation, etc.) Marketplace Sellers may not assess additional shipping charges for the original shipment of the order. Credits are $2.99 or $5.49 of the original shipping charge. Marketplace Sellers may not impose additional shipping fees for the original shipping charge if an order is returned. Buyers must request permission to return a book within 30 calendar days from its order and the Marketplace Seller must respond within 2 business days of the request. Any fees deemed excessive by Aurrii may be charged back to the Marketplace Seller and a refund in part or whole is given to the buyer. The maximum restocking fee permitted is 15% of item cost. Since refunds cannot be given above the original purchase amount, Marketplace Sellers must provide a prepaid shipping label for returns that are the result of the Marketplace Seller error or forfeit the item. Marketplace sellers may not under any circumstances ask for or coordinate payments or credits outside of the Aurrii Marketplace. Customer return requests are considered valid when the first contact is made within 30 days of the order date.
  8. Return rate: The return rate is calculated by dividing the number of returns by the total number of orders placed. Excessively high return rates could negatively impact a Marketplace Seller’s account status. The target return rate for all Marketplace Sellers is less than 12%. Marketplace Sellers that have a significantly higher return rate than 12% may face account suspension or other corrective actions.
  9. Responsiveness to buyers and Aurrii: The Marketplace Seller is expected to answer all pre-purchase and post-purchase buyer inquiries in a timely manner (within 48 business hours) and resolve all issues to the best of his or her ability. Additionally, the Marketplace Seller agrees to answer all communication from Aurrii within 2 business days to remain in good standing with Aurrii. Failure to do so could result in account suspension or other actions.
  10. Communication requirements: All sellers are required to list a valid contact email. In addition, all sellers must include a valid phone number. The phone number will not be shared with customers, it is for use by Aurrii only. All communication with buyers and Aurrii staff is expected to be professional and courteous. Any disrespectful remarks to customers and/or Aurrii staff will be taken seriously and may result in a refund/cancellation of an order, account suspension, or other action.
  11. Feedback: Any manipulation of feedback is prohibited. Any replies to comments left must be respectfully crafted in a professional tone. Any attempt to bribe a customer to leave positive feedback will result in an immediate suspension and possible termination of your account. Absolutely no personally identifiable information may be posted. This includes, but is not limited to customer’s name, address, other contact information, as well as order number or other identifying data. Violations may result in account suspension and payments held for 120 days. Aurrii has the final word regarding feedback and any resulting actions.
  12. Valid credit card: A valid credit card is a prerequisite for participation on the Aurrii Marketplace. Credit cards are used to settle debts such as those resulting from refunds exceeding sales in a billing cycle. Accounts with expired or invalid cards may have one or more actions taken as described in Consequences for Non-performance.

Chargebacks and Marketplace Seller responsibility

Marketplace Sellers are responsible for all chargebacks related to non-delivery, quality of goods, or shipment of an incorrect item. Marketplace Sellers will be held responsible for any chargeback where the Marketplace Seller fails to respond to any and all information requests, or if the response is insufficient to fight the chargeback. Marketplace Sellers will be held responsible for the amount of the order (including shipping costs), as well as all fees assessed by the bank for the issuance of the chargeback. These fees are not assessed nor covered by Aurrii and are the Marketplace Seller’s responsibility. It is the Marketplace Seller’s responsibility to ensure delivery of the item or issue a refund when one is due; to accurately represent the item for sale, and to ensure shipment of the correct item. If a chargeback is issued and covered by the issuer’s protection policy, you will not be held responsible for the monetary amount. However, all chargebacks are closely monitored. A high number of chargebacks for your Marketplace Seller account will result in further action by Aurrii.
