Welcome to Peddle! By using the Peddle platform (including accessing the peddlenz.com website or any future app and/or purchasing any goods or services through the site or app) (‘the Platform’), you agree to, and are automatically bound by, these terms and conditions.
We refer to the customer, as ‘you’ or the ‘Patron,’ and to the vendors who offer goods or services for sale through the Platform as ‘Peddlers’. References to ‘Services’ is to any service you access through the Platform, including payment services. References to ‘Peddle NZ’ or to us or we are to Peddle NZ Limited, a New Zealand registered company.
1. We are not the vendor
As a Patron, you acknowledge that:
you are buying goods and/or services through the Platform from the relevant Peddler, who is the vendor of those goods and/or services; and
- Peddle NZ is not a vendor. We provide the Platform as a venue but we don’t take part in the offer for sale or purchase of any goods or services through it. You accept that all transactions and contact between you and any Peddler is entirely at your risk and is your responsibility.
Peddle NZ has engaged third-party service providers to perform payment processing services that connect to the Platform, including card processing, currency exchange, identity verification, fraud analysis and regulatory compliance.
Peddle NZ partners with Stripe to facilitate card and other payments, and the disbursement of funds to the Peddlers. Stripe in turn has relationships with other third-party payments providers, including PayPal, Apple Pay and Google Pay. When you make payments through the Platform, you may also be subject to an agreement with Stripe and those other third party service providers. You accept those terms when you access those Services.
If you use a Peddle Gift Card or Peddle Points to pay or partially pay for goods or services ordered through the Platform, please note that the Peddle Points Policy will apply.
If you want to return goods purchased through the Platform, you must arrange this directly with the relevant Peddler. All Peddlers are required to comply with their obligations under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 (CGA) which requires them to provide refunds or returns for damaged or faulty goods. You will not be entitled to return goods just because you have changed your mind, unless the Peddler voluntarily accepts change of mind returns in its Returns Policy. If you believe the Peddler is not meeting its CGA obligations then please contact us and we will do our very best to find an acceptable solution.
For more information about your rights under the CGA, please refer to this link: https://comcom.govt.nz/consumers/dealing-with-typical-situations/returns-and-refunds
Please refer any complaints about Peddlers to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will determine whether it’s appropriate to take further action.
5. Disclaimer of liability
We vet our Peddlers and their products and services, and we take care to ensure that our Peddlers are honest and responsible, but neither Peddle NZ nor any of our directors, employees or officers is liable in any circumstances whatsoever to you or any other person, including for Peddle NZ’s negligence:
for the quality, fitness for purpose, compliance with description or lawfulness of the product offer for sale or supplied to you by the Peddler;
if the Peddler does not provide the product or service you buy;
for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of any Service; nor
- to ensure the safety of any product,
except to the extent required by mandatory law.
