Please see our Shipping Labels Services FAQ for more information here.
MODIFICATIONS TO SHIPPING LABELS TERMS OF SERVICE
Discogs may at any time revise the Shipping Labels TOS by updating this posting. By using Discogs, Member agrees to be bound by any such revisions and should therefore periodically visit this page to determine the then-current Shipping Labels TOS to which you are bound. Member's continued use of Discogs constitutes an affirmative: (1) acknowledgement by Member of the Shipping Labels TOS and Shipping Labels TOS modifications; and (2) agreement by Member to abide and be bound by the Shipping Labels TOS and Shipping Labels TOS modifications.
MODIFICATIONS TO SHIPPING LABELS SERVICE
Discogs reserves the right to modify or discontinue the Shipping Labels Service with or without notice to Member. Discogs shall not be liable to Member or any third party should Discogs exercise the Shipping Labels TOS right to modify or discontinue the Shipping Labels Service.
Members must specify shipping costs (range) and processing times in their listings and provide a valid address from which they will ship. Members are permitted to charge or pass through shipping costs to customers as set forth on the seller pages. Members must ship order to customers promptly after they are sold. Members are responsible for complying with all applicable local and international shipping and customs regulations, as well as USPS rules, when using Discogs Shipping Labels Services shipping services. Please see USPS Shipping Restrictions and A Customer’s Guide to Mailing.
The Shipping Labels Services may only be used in association with orders placed through the Discogs Marketplace. Labels may not be transferred or sold to a third party. Members may not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit any portion of the Shipping Labels Service, use of the Shipping Labels Services or access to the Shipping Labels Services. Members may not use the Shipping Labels Services for any illegal or unauthorized purpose, including violation of any laws in a Member’s jurisdiction.
Shipping costs will vary depending on the origin, destination, weight, dimensions, and any signature confirmation or insurance applied to the package. Discogs charges a fee of 11% ("Discogs Fee") on each purchase for a domestic shipping label through the Shipping Labels Services. There are no extra fees for international shipping labels at the moment. When a purchase is made through the Shipping Labels Services, Discogs will charge the Member’s PayPal account for the amount of the purchase, including the Discogs Fee. You authorize Discogs to charge your PayPal account for the Shipping Labels Services in accordance with these Shipping Labels TOS.
Label and postage may be cancelled or voided at any time unless (i) the label and postage have been used (as evidenced by USPS scan) or (2) more than thirty-five (35) days have passed since the label and postage was purchased. If the label and postage are eligible for cancellation or voidance, and the Member requests that the label be cancelled/voided and refunded, Discogs will refund the Member automatically through PayPal. The refund will consist of the total shipping and postage costs originally charged, including the Discogs Fee.
If PayPal declines to remit payment to Discogs for the cost of any Shipping Labels Services a Member has ordered, then the label and postage will not be available through Discogs.
AUTOMATED PACKAGE VERIFICATION
Discogs supports the USPS Automated Package Verification ("APV") System. This allows USPS to verify the accuracy of the postage amount and issue debits or credits where that amount is incorrect. When purchasing shipping labels through discogs.com, any postage amount discrepancy is debited or credited to the Discogs account. Discogs will then pass along that debit or credit to the Member's account. If a postage amount purchased through discogs.com is less than the amount required to ship the package, then Discogs will invoice the Member for the difference. If a postage amount purchased through discogs.com is greater than the amount required to ship the package, then Discogs will credit the Member’s account for the difference.
At this time, the Discogs postage and label program does not support additional insurance add-ons. Please see the USPS page for additional details on Shipping Insurance and Extra Services.
LOST, STOLEN, DAMAGED, AND RETURNED PACKAGES
Discogs only assists with the postage and label purchase. All issues with package delivery must be handled directly through the shipping provider. Members may need to reference the tracking number of the package in order for the shipping provider to investigate the issues. The tracking number can be found on the label itself. Members may contact the carrier for additional information.
You agree to indemnify and hold Discogs, and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, co-branders or other partners, and employees, harmless from any alleged claim or demand, including reasonable attorney fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your use of the Shipping Labels Service, your connection to the Shipping Labels Service, your violation of the Shipping Labels TOS, or your violation of any rights of another, whether you are a registered user or not. The user is solely responsible for their actions when using the Shipping Labels Service, including, but not limited to, costs incurred for Internet access.
