Site Policies

Vampire Classifieds Site Policies

All site policies and terms have been put in place to help protect buyers and sellers while maintaining a safe environment. New members should make themselves aware of all policies and terms prior to using our site and review them on a regular basis as they can be updated periodically. Vampire Classifieds is a third party site that provides a platform for sellers.

Dispute Policy

Vampire Classifieds provides members with a platform to buy and sell items online. We will strive to provide a safe and secure online community for all members; however, since we are not involved with the sale between buyer and seller, we do not take responsibility for the sale or transaction and cannot be held accountable for any issues that may occur.
We are not responsible for any disputes or refund requests between buyers and sellers. If a problem occurs between a buyer and seller, the resolution of this issue is the responsibility of the buyer and seller, not Vampire Classifieds.
If a dispute occurs during the sale and transaction, it must be solved between the buyer and seller via open communication. If a member has any complaints or issues about a sale or transaction, they must be directed to the other party, not Vampire Classifieds.
If the issue cannot be resolved between direction communication of the buyer and seller, we may be contacted. Vampire Classifieds will be neutral during the dispute process, and if a solution cannot be agreed upon, we reserve the right to implement the following action: issue a warning, cancel an advertisement without notice or refund, suspend an account, or terminate an account without notice for refund.

Role of the Seller

Selling items on Vampire Classifieds is done at your own risk and any transactions or contact with other members is conducted at your own risk. Responsibility for details of advertisements that are published on Vampire Classifieds rest on the seller.
The seller must ensure that advertisements represent their items accurately not mislead buyers in any way. It is the seller’s responsibility to ensure the items they list are legal and do not violate any law. If a breach is brought to our attention we reserve the right to remove the advertisement from the website and a refund will not be issued.
The seller must ensure that listed items do not breach copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights of any third party. If a breach is brought to our attention we reserve the right to remove the advertisement from the website and a refund will not be issued.
The seller must honor and complete all transactions. Listing an item on Vampire Classifieds is making a commitment to sell and the seller must deliver the item after payment has been accepted. The seller must send the described item to the seller in a timely manner. All sellers must comply with Terms of Use listed on Vampire Classifieds before listing an advertisement.

Seller’s Responsibilities

If a dispute occurs, the seller must comply with the following:
– communicate with the buyer to resolve the issue quickly and efficiently (any complaints or issues regarding the sale must be directed towards the buyer)
– behave in an ethical manner while communicating (defamatory, libelous, offensive, threatening or harassing is not acceptable)
– keep all personal information about the buyer confidential (addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and other personal information are not to be published anywhere)
It is the responsibility of the seller to issue a refund if needed.

Role of the Buyer

 Any purchases that are done on Vampire Classifieds are done at your own risk. Any contact between you and any members of Vampire Classifieds are conducted at your own risk. All advertisement details published by Vampire Classifieds are provided for informational purposes only as Vampire Classifieds does not endorse any products or members.

Complying with Buying Requirements

To reduce the likelihood of seller dissatisfaction and a possible dispute, we ask buyers and sellers to comply with the following:
  1. Honoring the Transaction Contract: A contract of sale is formed immediately between the buyer and the seller, once the buyer makes the commitment to purchase. This commitment is binding, and consequently, buyers must pay for the items that they commit to purchase in a timely manner.
  2. Complying with law: It is the buyer’s responsibility to ensure that any items purchased do not violate any law. Read prohibited items for further details.
  3. Complying with Vampire Classifieds Terms of Use: Buyers must be familiar with, and comply with, Vampire Classified’s Terms of Use before purchasing any items.

Prior to publishing your advertisement you will be given the option of different packages to purchase depending on availability. We do not accept major credit cards and only take payment through PayPal. Applicable taxes are included in the package pricing. All listings are to be paid for by the seller and fees cannot be transferred to another buyer.
Sellers are not permitted to charge buyers additional surcharges or fees on top of their sale price. All fees must be included in the total cost of the item.
