We strongly encourage buyers to work with sellers before opening a claim relating to a purchase. Buyers and sellers agree to follow the requirements of the Hey-Deals Buyer Protection Policy with respect to claims. Hey-Deals Buyer Protection covers only claims filed? in accordance with the? Hey-Deals Buyer Protection Policy, not claims filed with PayPal. We may suspend the Hey-Deals Buyer Protection Policy without notice if we suspect abuse or interference with the proper working of the program.
We require Hey-Deals sellers to comply with our resolution process. Sellers permit us to make a final decision, in our sole discretion, on any claim that a buyer files with Hey-Deals under the Hey-Deals Buyer Protection Policy. If we resolve a dispute in the buyer's favor, we will refund the buyer for the cost of the item and the original shipping, and we will require the seller to reimburse us for the refund. Without limiting the foregoing, sellers may not have to pay a reimbursement for an Hey-Deals claim if they provide the documentation (for example, delivery confirmation or proof that the item was as described) indicated in theHey-Deals Buyer Protection Policy.
Sellers must have a reimbursement method on file with Hey-Deals.
For transactions paid with PayPal, sellers agree to allow us to remove funds from their PayPal accounts?to reimburse buyers. Sellers may change this reimbursement method by contacting Hey-Deals.
When there are insufficient funds in PayPal accounts, transactions are not paid with PayPal, or when PayPal is not the reimbursement method of a seller, we will require another reimbursement method.
For future claims where the seller is found at fault, we will notify the seller and continue to charge the sellers preferred method for any reimbursements made under the Hey-Deals Buyer Protection Policy. Changing a reimbursement method will not affect Hey-Deals's use of a payment method on file for other purposes (such as payment of your Hey-Deals fees). If sellers do not provide Hey-Deals with a valid reimbursement method, we may collect amounts owed using other collection mechanisms, including retaining collection agencies. We may also suspend or restrict sellers from trading on our sites until payment is made.
Fees and Services
Joining Hey-Deals and bidding on listed items is free. We do charge fees for using other services, such as listing items. When you list an item or use a service that has a fee, you have an opportunity to review and accept the fees that you will be charged based on our Fees schedule, which we may change from time to time. Changes to that schedule are effective after we provide you with at least 14 days' notice by posting the changes on the Hey-Deals site. We may choose to temporarily change the fees for our services for promotional events (for example, free listing days) or new services, and such changes are effective when we post the temporary promotional event or new service on the site. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in U.S. Dollars. You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with our site and services in a timely manner with a valid payment method. If your payment method fails or your account is past due, we may collect fees owed using other collection mechanisms. (This includes charging other payment methods on file with us, retaining collection agencies and legal counsel, and for accounts over 180 days past due, deducting the amount owed from your PayPal account balance.)
