ASOS Marketplace Terms & Conditions (Boutiques)

The legal bits...

We’re ASOS Marketplace Limited (company number 07289272), a company registered in England and Wales. Our HQ is at Greater London House, Hampstead Road, London NW1 7FB.

These terms apply when you list items for sale on ASOS Marketplace (https://marketplace.asos.com/) or access our services and websites (our ‘Website(s)’). They’re important for both of us as they set out what we expect from each other, and they also give you helpful info. Of course, if you need anything else, please get in touch with the team on sell@asos.com!

We keep these terms and any related documents or policies updated and we amend them every so often, so remember to regularly check back as the latest set will apply. In the event of a significant change to one or more of the clauses in these terms, we will notify you of the change in advance by giving you at least 30 days’ notice, including your right to terminate your account with ASOS Marketplace if you disagree with the revised terms. If you do not terminate your account with ASOS Marketplace before the date the revised terms become effective, your continued access to or use of the ASOS Marketplace Website will constitute acceptance of the revised terms. We recommend you print a copy of the terms to keep for your own reference.

Setting up an ASOS Marketplace Boutique

For details on opening an ASOS Marketplace Boutique (a ‘Boutique’) please click here. You may close your Boutique at any time.

You may not transfer or sell your Boutique account or User ID to another party. If you are registering as a business entity, you personally guarantee that you have the authority to bind the entity to these terms.

By setting up a Boutique you must:

You are responsible for all activity, liability and damage resulting from your failure to maintain password confidentiality!

ASOS Marketplace reserves the right to refuse service to anyone, including restricting, suspending or terminating Boutiques that breach these terms or its Code of Conduct.

Selling on ASOS Marketplace

By listing an item for sale on your Boutique, you confirm that the item complies with the Code of Conduct and that you have the right to sell the item.

The price stated in each item listing description must be an accurate representation of the sale. Boutiques may charge reasonable shipping and handling fees to cover the costs for packaging and posting the items, however Boutiques may not charge excessive shipping fees or otherwise avoid fees.

All sales are final and binding. The Boutique is responsible for shipping up to the point of delivery or otherwise completing the transaction with the buyer within 20 days of the order being placed, unless the following exceptional circumstances apply:

You may issue promotional codes for your Boutique or include certain selected items in your Boutique for promotional purposes only. Promotional codes have no cash value and cannot be exchanged for money or credit.

Please note, ASOS Marketplace does not support the drop shipping business model. If a Boutique is thought to be running their business as a drop shipper, then we may remove that Boutique from the Website without notice or prior warning.

The placement of products for sale via Boutiques in ASOS Marketplace’s search results may vary and depends on a variety of factors including search parameters and preferences. For further information into rankings, please see the ‘Our Marketing Channels’ guide provided to you when you open an account.

ASOS Marketplace’s fees and features

Further information as to the fees charged for Boutiques can be found here (the ‘Fees’). Unless otherwise stated, all Fees are quoted in UK Pounds (GBP). If Fees are due, we will invoice the Boutique for the amount due that month, which will be taken automatically by ASOS Marketplace from the boutique’s registered PayPal account 2 working days later.

All Fees are inclusive of UK VAT where applicable. In certain circumstances Fees will not be subject to UK VAT but may be subject to taxes under a different jurisdiction. ASOS Marketplace recommends that you research whether you are liable to declare such taxes to the relevant tax authorities. A valid VAT identification number is required from EU boutiques who are VAT-registered. EU boutiques are liable to notify ASOS Marketplace of any change in VAT status.

It is your responsibility to ensure that your Boutique stays up to date with all Fees owed to ASOS Marketplace, or your account may be suspended until all outstanding Fees are paid in full. Please note that, if your Boutique’s product count falls to zero, the Boutique will no longer show on the Website, but the monthly Boutique Fee will still be debited from the boutique owner’s PayPal / Stripe account until the account has been officially closed.

ASOS Marketplace may decrease the Fees charged at any time in its sole discretion, however we will give you at least 30 days' notice of any Fee increases. ASOS Marketplace may, at its sole discretion, change some or all of ASOS Marketplace's services or features (‘Features”) at any time, however you will receive at least 30 days’ written notice of any material changes to the Features, if any such changes require a significant adjustment to the way you use ASOS Marketplace.

If ASOS Marketplace suspends or terminates a listing or your account, if you close your account for any reason, or if the payment of Fees due cannot be completed for any reason, all unpaid Fees for the Boutique will still be payable, all outstanding orders need to be fulfilled and ASOS Marketplace may also apply penalties such as the suspension of privileges, interest and/or legal action.

If you have any questions about Fees, please contact ASOS Marketplace at sell@asos.com.

Brexit Transition: New rules for 2021 in relation to VAT on overseas goods sold to customers in Great Britain using online marketplaces. From 1st January 2021, there will be changes to the way that UK VAT is collected at the point of sale on certain marketplace sales. From 1st January 2021 ASOS Marketplace will be responsible for collecting VAT on the sale of goods from overseas into Great Britain if the total value of the consignment is £135 or less. You will be responsible for calculating the value of the goods that are outside of Great Britain at the point of sale to a customer in Great Britain. We will update these terms in due course from the point that ASOS will require you to charge and account to ASOS Marketplace for the UK VAT and we will provide you with 30 days’ notice of such change to the terms. For full details of the UK Government guidance please refer to: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/vat-and-overseas-goods-sold-to-customers-in-great-britain-using-online-marketplaces-from-1-january-2021.

ASOS Marketplace Terms & Conditions (Customers)

The legal bits…

We’re ASOS Marketplace Limited (company number 07289272), a company registered in England and Wales. Our HQ is at Greater London House, Hampstead Road, London NW1 7FB.

When you shop with us on ASOS Marketplace (https://marketplace.asos.com/) (or access our services, apps and websites (our “Websites”)), these terms and ASOS’s general terms and conditions apply. They’re important for both of us as they set out what we expect from each other, and they also give you helpful info.

The boring stuff – your Boutique contract

ASOS allows third party sellers (our Boutiques) to list and sell their products on ASOS Marketplace. In each case this is indicated on the respective product page. While ASOS Marketplace (as a service provider) helps facilitate transactions that are carried out on ASOS Marketplace, ASOS Marketplace is neither the buyer nor the seller of the items for sale on ASOS Marketplace. When you buy an item on ASOS Marketplace, you enter into a contract with the Boutique – they are solely responsible for providing you with your items and any issues or complaints you may have in respect of the items. . ASOS Marketplace is not a party to this contract nor assumes any responsibility arising out of or in connection with it nor is it the agent of any Boutique. That said, ASOS Marketplace wants to make sure you have a positive buying experience and will assist you in resolving any disputes that arise between you and a Boutique. For details of how you can access this help, please see the ‘Feedback, Interactions with Boutiques, Complaints or need to speak to us?’ section below.

Placing an Order

When you place an order on ASOS Marketplace you should receive an acknowledgement e-mail confirming receipt of your order. All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price.

You may be able to cancel an order within a short period of ordering, depending on your chosen delivery method and whether the Boutique has already shipped the item. Most Boutiques will not be able to change your order – you’ll need to cancel (and/or return original item(s)), and re-order.

Very occasionally, a Boutique may need to refuse or cancel an order even if it has previously confirmed your order – e.g. if they notice something unusual on an order. If this happens to you and you think they’ve made a mistake, please don’t take offence – get in touch with the Boutique and they’ll be happy to speak to you about it.

ASOS Marketplace may, very occasionally, need to close or freeze an account if we notice something unusual on an order or an account.

Prices and Product Descriptions

The price and product descriptions for items available on ASOS Marketplace are the sole responsibility of the Boutique owners. ASOS has no liability to you for any items which are incorrectly priced or described. Prices include VAT (where applicable).

All transactions on ASOS Marketplace are paid in GBP and can be paid via PayPal or Stripe (credit/debit card payments). We provide a currency converter tool to allow you to see an approximate cost in selected currencies. The currency data is regularly updated from multiple sources to create one guideline rate. This guidance rate may differ to that offered by PayPal or your card provider. The correct billing amount in GBP will always be displayed before you enter your payment details.

Please contact the Boutique owner if you have any questions about an item available for sale on Marketplace.

ASOS gift cards and gift vouchers cannot be used to purchase goods on ASOS Marketplace.

Delivery

Before you finalise your order, you’ll be given various shipping options to choose from with estimated delivery time and dates depending on the delivery address and the methods of shipping the Boutique has decided to offer. If a certain shipping method is not available, you should contact the Boutique and ask if they would be prepared to offer the alternative shipping method and add it to their listing.

Unfortunately, you cannot use ASOS' Premier Delivery service on ASOS Marketplace.

Delivery timeframes can vary based on the delivery method that the Boutique has provided or that you have chosen, as well as where the item is being delivered from or to. A number of Boutiques offer free UK delivery – just refine by "Free Delivery" on your favourite category pages. If you want more information, please contact the Boutique by clicking on the envelope icon on their store front or on any of their items for sale.

Overseas buyers may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches your country. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be covered by you; we have no control over these charges and can’t predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. Additionally, please note that when ordering from a Boutique at ASOS Marketplace, you are considered the importer of the item and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods.

If an item hasn’t been delivered within the estimated delivery timeframes, please see the ‘Feedback, Interactions with Boutiques, Complaints or need to speak to us?’ section below.

Returns and Refunds

We get it, sometimes something just doesn’t work for you and you want your money back. As long as the item is unworn and still in the condition in which it was received, Marketplace customers are entitled to receive from the Boutique a full refund by way of the original payment method if you return an item requesting a refund within 28 days of the item being delivered to you or available for collection. Exchanges are also permitted by some Boutiques – please contact the relevant Boutique if you wish for an exchange rather than a refund.

To request a refund, select the item from the Orders section of your Account and use the drop down available to select ‘Request Refund’. The Boutique will then provide you instructions on how to return your item and (subject to our fair use policy) they will process your refund to your original payment method once they have received the item. Please note, a Boutique may refuse to cancel an order or accept an exchange or return if an item has been used, opened or unsealed, or been made according to your precise measurements (i.e. made-to-measure) or has been customised or personalised at your request. Boutiques are unable to accept returns without original packaging or labels. Where products are sealed for health protection or hygiene purposes, A Boutique will not be able to accept a return once the product has been unsealed.

If you do not receive a satisfactory outcome from the Boutique, ASOS Marketplace will assist in resolving the issue. Please see the ‘Feedback, Interactions with Boutiques, Complaints or need to speak to us?’ section below.

You may also use the withdrawal form to let the Boutique know if you wish to cancel your contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (the “CCRs”). Cancellations received under the CCRs must be made within 14 days of receiving the item and sent to cancellations@asosmarketplace.com. If you cancel your contract under the CCRs, any standard shipping charges that you have paid to receive your purchase will be included as part of your refund.

If you have received a faulty or incorrect item, please contact the Boutique in order to resolve the issue, providing a detailed description of the fault together with photographic evidence.

Return postage is your responsibility unless the item is incorrect or faulty, in which case the Boutique will refund the return postage. Please do not send returns to ASOS or use ASOS.com's freepost label. Marketplace cannot recover items incorrectly sent to ASOS.com.

Fair Use Policy

ASOS Marketplace follows a fair use policy for returns – items being returned must be unworn and in the condition in which it was received save for your right to inspect the goods and try on the garments. It is your responsibility to ensure that you package the returned goods adequately so that it arrives back to the Boutique undamaged. If you have any further questions on returns, refunds or cancellations please contact the Boutique.

Promo Codes and Student Discount

We do not offer student discount on items purchased via ASOS Marketplace, however boutiques have the option to set up promotion and discount codes so it is a good idea to keep an eye out for these. Each promo code will have its own terms which will be made clear at the time they are issued to you.
