Handling orders

  • When a Buyer orders a Do, 3Quid will notify the Seller by email.
  • Sellers are required to meet the delivery duration specified by them when creating their Do's. Failing to do so will permit the Buyer to cancel the order and will reduce the Seller's rating.

Shipping

Some of the services on 3Quid are delivered physically (arts and crafts, collectable items etc). For this type of Do, Sellers are entitled to add additional charges for local or international shipping.
 

Important

  • When a buyer buys a Do which is delivered physically, the Buyer will be required to provide a shipping address. The Seller will be responsible for all shipping arrangements once the Buyer supplies the shipping address. 3Quid does not handle or guarantee shipping, tracking, quality and condition of items or their delivery and shall not be responsible or liable for any damages or other problems caused, directly or indirectly, from delivered items and their shipping.
  • Using a service with a tracking number is the best way to avoid disputes related to shipping. We recommend entering the tracking number on the order page when delivering your work.

General terms

  • Violation of 3Quid's Terms of Service may get your account permanently blocked.
  • Sellers will be able to withdraw their earnings from blocked accounts after a safety period of 45 to 90 days, depending on the reason for the block, from the day of last cleared payment received in their account, and subject to 3Quid's approval.
  • For any disputes contact us immediately.
  • 3Quid reserves the right to put any account on hold or permanently cancel accounts. Users with accounts on hold will not be able to sell or buy on 3Quid.
  • 3Quid may make changes to its Terms of Service from time to time. When these changes are made, 3Quid will provide an update to the Terms of Service at terms_of_service
  • Using 3Quid after the date on which the Terms of Service have changed constitutes your acceptance of the updated Terms of Service.

Disputes

  • We encourage our Buyers and Sellers to try and settle disputes amongst themselves. If for any reason this fails, users can contact 3Quid's customer support department for assistance.
  • 3Quid will not refund payments made for cancelled orders back to PayPal. Refunds are made to the Buyer's account balance and are made available for future purchases on 3Quid.
