Terms & Conditions
Used Jamaica is an online marketplace encouraging people to find the joy in selling. Turn home items, electronics, fashion and everything into cash!
These terms and conditions (the “Terms”) apply to the use of all Used Jamaica. If using Used Jamaica the user accepts these terms and shall be obliged to adhere to them.
As a registered user, you can make offers and buy and sell a variety of goods and services (“products”). This is permitted providing it doesn’t break any laws, is not against good morals, our Terms, or our Prohibited Items list.
Once the user has confirmed their purchase the user agrees that Used Jamaica, concluding the contract, delivers the service in its entirety immediately.
Used Jamaica is not responsible for content generated by users and there is no right for publication of content. Used Jamaica reserves the right to suspend or remove a user from the platform without reason. It is also prohibited to create another account under a different name and/or e-mail address if you have previously been blocked from using Used Jamaica.
Used Jamaica only provides the framework for users to buy and sell. Posts for buying and selling are not legally binding offers by Used Jamaica and Used Jamaica is not a contracting party. The contract is between the users of the marketplace and the fulfillment of these contracts is concluded via the Used Jamaica Services but carried out exclusively among the users.
Used Jamaica offers a variety of premium features. Once the user selects the premium feature and pays for it, the feature is activated and Used Jamaica has fulfilled their contractual obligation for the premium feature.

The indemnity includes but is not limited to payable fines, damages, as well as all costs of legal defence and legal representation.
Transactions between Users
Other Used Jamaica users can view posts and submit offers to purchase. The seller can accept the offer or submit a counter offer.

Offers can be cancelled by the seller or the buyer before the other party has confirmed.
The contract between the seller and buyer is exclusively between the users themselves and must be closed on the Used Jamaica platform. Used Jamaica does not offer or receive any offers or submit or receive bids and therefore is not a party in the sales contract.

Should the Used Jamaica somehow become aware of a specific unlawful act of an individual user or receive information within the Used Jamaica services, the information will immediately be removed or the access to this content will be blocked.
