Principles and arrangements for offering items
London Music Hall’s arrangements are guidelines that make a protected, reasonable and charming exchanging environment for all LMH members. As a dealer, you are in charge of comprehension and sticking to LMH’s offering arrangements, and additionally all relevant laws and controls as laid out in the User Agreement .
Strategies and rules particularly identified with offering an item include:
Precluded and limited items ― What items can and can’t be listed. LMH’s limitations are regularly in view of nation, incorporating those managing copyright or trademark. Be that as it may, numerous limitations include the offer of dubious or delicate items and are not really precluded by law, and are regularly leads we have organized in light of input from our Community. Before you list your thing, it is a smart thought to peruse LMH’s disallowed and limited things arrangement to check whether it is on the rundown of what may not be sold on LMH.
Finishing the deal ― These approaches are identified with exchanges. For instance, tolerating installment and sending an item that is fundamentally not quite the same as the item portrayed in the listing is not permitted. For arrangement and cases, see Seller non-execution.
Breaks of LMH arrangements can bring about a scope of actions, including:
Relinquish of LMH expenses on wiped out listings
Constrains on account benefits
Loss of PowerSeller status
At the point when ruptures of approach happen, LMH messages the merchant, and in addition bidders, that a listing has been finished. Finding out about LMH’s offering arrangements beforeyou list an item will help you to stay away from accidentally breaking rules (and the law). LMH’s offering approaches are overhauled to react to commercial center, Community and security issues, so it is essential to check them consistently for changes.

To protect against the risk of liability, LMH has at times recommended, and may continue to recommend, that PayPal restrict access to funds in a seller’s PayPal account based on certain factors, including, but not limited to, selling history, seller performance, returns, riskiness of the listing category, transaction value or the filing of a case. This may result in PayPal determining to restrict funds in your PayPal account.
Sellers can create rules to automate returns and refunds under certain circumstances. For all new sellers, LMH may set a default rule that automates the return process for some or all listings where returns are accepted. Sellers may remove or customise their returns preferences in the description of the items listed and deal with it with the buyer.
When an item is returned, to refund the buyer, you request PayPal to reverse the refund amount (in the same or other currency) from your PayPal account, and place the amount on your seller invoice as a fee (which may be charged to your automatic payment method on file). If the buyer returns an item because it does not match the listing description, sellers will usually be responsible for return postage costs.
When a transaction is cancelled, and you choose to refund the buyer via Paypal, you will request PayPal to reverse the refund amount (in same or other currency) from the seller’s PayPal account, to the buyer.
Most LMH sales go smoothly, but if there’s a problem with a purchase, seller and buyer needs to go in dispute through Paypal.
Sellers must have a payment method with LMH. The accepted method on LMH auctions page is Paypal only.
