Your Rights

Globes Marketplace operates as middle-man to connect you with vendors that use our marketplace, you have a contract with individual vendors when you make a purchase. Each vendor has a shipping and returns policy that explains their procedures. In the event of a dispute Globes Marketplace will help arbitrate if contact directly with the vendor does not resolve your issue. We can issue refunds directly to you if the need arises.

Vendor’s Obligations

  1. Order Cancellations, Refunds and Returns: All item returns, order cancellations or refunds are handled by you and not Globes Marketplace and are subject to your cancellation, refund and return policy, as may be stated on your store site under the “Details” section of your listing. Customers are therefore responsible for reviewing your policy prior to purchasing an item on the Site.
  2. Shipping and Delivery: You decide how you want to ship. Choose the shipping option that offers the greatest value and convenience for you.
  3. Taxes: You are responsible for paying taxes and other government-imposed fees associated with using our Site, in accordance with all applicable laws.


We charge a fee when a Vendor’s  item sells. This fee is calculated as a percentage of the total amount of the sale, which is 10%.

Reviews and Comments

Except as otherwise provided elsewhere in this Agreement or on the Site, anything that you submit or post to the Site and/or provide us, including without limitation, ideas, know-how, techniques, questions, reviews, comments, and suggestions (collectively, "Comments"), you agree that we may, at any time, without restriction, edit, copy, publish, distribute, translate and otherwise use in any medium any comments that you forward to us. We are and will be under no obligation (1) to maintain any comments in confidence; (2) to pay compensation for any comments; or (3) to respond to any comments.

In addition, we may, but have no obligation to, monitor, edit or remove content that we determine in our sole discretion are unlawful, offensive, threatening, libellous, defamatory, pornographic, obscene or otherwise objectionable or violates any party’s intellectual property or these Terms and Conditions.

In no event shall we, our related entities, our affiliates or staff be liable, whether in contract, warranty, tort (including negligence), or any other form of liability, for:

Notwithstanding the above provisions, nothing in this Agreement is intended to limit or exclude any liability on the part of us and our affiliates and related entities where and to the extent that applicable law prohibits such exclusion or limitation.

Legal Limitation


As some jurisdictions do not allow some of the exclusions or limitations as established above, some of these exclusions or limitations may not apply to you.

We may plead this Agreement in bar to any claim, action, proceeding or suit brought by you, against us for any matter arising out of any transaction or otherwise in respect of this Agreement.

In addition, the arbitrator may award relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) only in favour of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that party's individual claim(s). Any relief awarded cannot affect other users in favour of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that party's individual claim(s). Any relief awarded cannot affect other users.


If you have a dispute with one or more users on the platform, you release us (and our affiliates and subsidiaries, and our and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. In entering into this release, you expressly waive any protections (whether statutory or otherwise) that would otherwise limit the coverage of this release to include only those claims which you may know or suspect to exist in your favour at the time of agreeing to this release.


You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Globes Marketplace and our affiliates, partners, officers, directors, agents, contractors, licensors, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers, interns and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third-party due to or arising out of your breach of these Terms and Conditions or the documents they incorporate by reference, or your violation of any law or the rights of a third-party.

These Terms and Conditions and any separate agreements shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United Kingdom.
