All items offered for sale on Cheapcheap must be authentic.
Cheapcheap does not allow the sale of inauthentic merchandise, including any items that have been manufactured, replicated, or reproduced without authorization. All items bearing a company’s official brand name or logo must have been lawfully made by, for, or with the consent of that company, otherwise the seller is in violation of Cheapcheap’s Authentic Items policy.
It is the responsibility of each seller to source and sell only authentic products. If a seller is determined by Cheapcheap to have sold inauthentic/counterfeit goods, Cheapcheap may suspend or terminate the seller’s ability to sell on Cheapcheap immediately, indefinitely, and without warning; and current or future payments held by Cheapcheap on the seller’s behalf may be forfeited, withheld, and applied towards the reimbursement of buyers.
If a buyer receives an item determined to be inauthentic, Cheapcheap will not facilitate the return or replacement of this item to the seller and the seller bears the entire risk of losing the physical item, the monetary value of the item, and the privilege to continue selling on Cheapcheap. Sales of inauthentic/counterfeit goods may also lead to civil and criminal penalties and legal action against sellers by the lawful owners of the intellectual property infringed upon, and Cheapcheap will cooperate with the appropriate parties in holding the offending sellers accountable.
