3.3 When a Seller lists an Item in the Catalog and the listing is published on the Service, this constitutes an offer for sale of the relevant Item by the Seller, which may be accepted by a Buyer.
3.4 The Seller who has listed an Item may withdraw the Item or amend the Listing (including the price) any time before a Buyer clicks on the “Buy now” button for such Item.

SELLERS AND BUYERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR COMPLYING WITH ALL LAWS AND REGULATIONS APPLICABLE TO THE INTERNATIONAL SALE, PURCHASE, AND SHIPMENT OF ITEMS.
3.6 You authorise us to use automated tools to translate your listed content, including member-to-member communications, in whole or in part, into local languages where such translation solutions are available. We may provide you with tools which will enable you to translate content at your request. The accuracy and the availability of any translation are not guaranteed.
4. BUYING ITEMS ON THE SERVICE
4.1 A Buyer can use the “Buy now/Check Out” button to buy an Item. For safety reasons, we always recommend that Buyers buy in-app or on-web by using the “Buy now” button, in which case the Buyer is covered by Buyer Protection (see Section 5 below for additional details). If a Buyer concludes the Transaction outside of the Service directly with the Seller and without using our “Buy now” button, Buyer Protection will not apply and Linework will not be able to assist the Buyer in the event any problems occur with the Transaction.
4.2 By using the “Pay now” button and confirming the Buyer’s details during the Checkout process, the Buyer acknowledges that their acceptance of the Seller’s offer has been made in consideration of the Item as described in the Item’s description. Both the Buyer and the Seller acknowledge that using the “Pay now” button and confirming the Buyer’s details creates a legally binding contract between the Buyer and the Seller, and the Buyer has a commitment to pay for the Item and the Seller has a commitment to transfer ownership of the Item. To avoid doubt, Linework is not a party to this contract.
5. BUYER PROTECTION SERVICE
5.1 When Buyer Protection is added the Buyer pays a fee which enables the Buyer to seek a refund in certain circumstances, as further described in this Section 5.
5.2 The Buyer Protection Fee is a fixed amount of 1USDT for each purchase ;
5.3 Buyer Protection includes the right for a Buyer to seek a refund in the event (i) an Item is lost during shipping or (ii) the delivered Item is damaged or (iii) is significantly not as described in the listing for the Item. In such circumstances, the Buyer must report the issue to Linework within five (5) days after the date the Item is marked as ‘delivered’ in the system. If there is a mistake in the reported ‘delivered’ date and the item has not been actually delivered to the Buyer, the Buyer must still report the issue within the Dispute Filing Period; otherwise, the Transaction will be marked as completed. To report an issue to Linework, the Buyer must click the “I have an Issue” button in their Private Message with the Seller within the Dispute Filing Period. Otherwise, the Transaction will be completed, and money will be transferred to the Seller.
5.3.1 If the Buyer did not receive an Item, the Buyer must inform Linework by clicking on the “I have an issue” button within the Dispute Filing Period. This will suspend the Transaction and the Total Price will be retained until Linework investigates where the Item is and receives confirmation from the shipping provider that the Item is confirmed lost. Once the Item has been confirmed as lost, Linework will manage the refund.
5.3.2 If the Buyer receives an Item that has been damaged during shipment or is significantly not as described in the Item’s listing, the Buyer must inform Linework by clicking on the “I have an issue” button within the Dispute Filing Period. This will suspend the Transaction and the Total Price will not be released to the Seller until the following process is complete:
- The Buyer and Seller can resolve the issue between themselves in their Private Messages and Linework will not interfere.
- If the Buyer and the Seller are unable to resolve the issue directly, the Buyer or the Seller can escalate the issue to Linework by contacting Linework Customer Support from their Private Message. After Linework has reviewed the issue, if Linework agrees that the Item indeed does not substantially comply with the description provided by the Seller in the Item listing or that the item was damaged during transit, Linework will cancel the Transaction and issue a refund to the Buyer after the Buyer confirms that the Item has been shipped back to the Seller. Linework does not provide return shipping services. Shipping costs for returning an Item are the responsibility of the Buyer unless the Buyer and the Seller agree otherwise. If the Buyer does not send the Item back within the period stipulated by Linework, the Buyer may not be eligible to receive a refund. If Linework determines that there are strong indications that the received Item is a counterfeit, then Linework may decide, in its sole discretion, that the Buyer does not need to send back the Item in order to get a refund and the Buyer and the Seller will respect such decision.
- If the Buyer and the Seller resolve the issue privately after having already contacted Linework Customer Support, the Users must inform Linework (by contacting Linework Customer Support) that the issue has been resolved.
- With respect to an Item that a Buyer has reported is significantly not as described in the Item’s listing, if Linework determines that the Item complies with the description provided by the Seller in the Item listing, then the Buyer shall not be eligible for a refund through Linework and Linework will complete the Transaction in accordance with Section 6.4. After the Transaction is completed and the money in escrow wallet is released to the Seller, the Buyer can try to negotiate directly with the Seller for the return of the Item (e.g., agreement on reimbursement, return shipping fees, etc.); however, the Seller may refuse to cooperate with the Buyer on the grounds that the Transaction has been fulfilled from the Seller side.
5.3.3 If there is something wrong with the Item received by the Buyer, or the Item was not received by the Buyer but the Buyer does not click the “I have an issue” button within the Dispute Filing Period, the Transaction will be completed automatically, and the Buyer will not be entitled to a refund under Buyer Protection for that Item and the money that the Seller is entitled to for the Transaction will be released by Linework to the Seller.
5.4 BUYER PROTECTION IS NOT INSURANCE SERVICES OR LEGAL PROTECTION GUARANTEE SERVICES.
5.5 Users agree to comply with the process for receiving a refund under Buyer Protection and to permit Linework to make the final decision on any Buyer Protection-related issue.
5.6 If the Seller does not provide the shipping between the term of five (5) days the Buyer is eligible for a refund. The refund will be issued on the Internal wallet used for the original transaction.
5.7 If the User has subscribed for the Buyer protection, the refund policy will be extended to other cases such as:
- The Item(s) is lost or destroyed during the shipping;
- The item(s) does not have the characteristics of the Item listed on the marketplace by the Seller.
6. INTEGRATED PAYMENT SERVICE
6.1 Integrated Payment Service enables the Buyer to pay in advance the total amount due for the Transaction, which consists of:
(i) the price for the Item(s) purchased from the Seller;
(ii) the Shipping fees; and
(iii) the Buyer Protection fee, if selected.
(collectively, (i)-(iii), the “Total Price”).
6.2 Payment for the Total Price can be made by the Linework internal wallet, or any other payment method introduced from time to time on the Service (the same applies for Paying for Additional Services as described below). The funds available on the internal wallet (Balance) will be automatically used to make purchases on the Service from other Users. If the Buyer does not have enough funds in their internal wallet to cover the total amount due, the Transaction cannot be successful.
6.3 To pay for Additional Services, the User use the Balance in the Internal wallet, if the funds available are enough to cover the fee.
6.4 The Total Price paid by the Buyer in advance will be retained by Linework in the escrow wallet until a Transaction is completed. A Transaction is considered complete:
- When the Seller confirms through the Service that the he has delivered the Item(s); or
- Automatically after the expiration of the Dispute Filing Period if no disputes about the Item(s) are reported during the Dispute Filing Period; or
- After the resolution of a dispute that was reported during the Dispute Filing Period.
Once a Transaction is completed, the purchase price of the Item, and if the Custom Shipping option was used (as described in Section 7.1), also the shipping fees, will be immediately transferred by Linework to the Seller’s internal wallet.
6.5 Internal wallet.
6.5.1 Internal wallet (Balance) feature is a payment service provided by Linework. When a User subscribe to the Service, the User enters into a contract directly with Linework, and the User will be accepting Linework terms and conditions. Users will be asked to confirm this during account creation. For the first sale Transaction where the Buyer purchases an Item using the “Buy now” button, the Seller will be asked to add funds to the Internal wallet.
6.6 Linework process payments made using the Integrated Payment Service and store information relating to the Internal wallet transactions. Additionally, Linework provides escrow services when a Buyer makes a purchase by using the “Buy now/Check out” button, Linework acquires funds from the Buyer on behalf of the Seller and holds those funds for disbursement. Linework supports its Users in using the services provided and also provides direct assistance to Users for such services; however, to avoid doubt, Linework does not provide any payment processing or money transmission services for Users. Users are solely responsible for providing accurate information associated with the funds deployed on the Internal wallet and LINEWORK HEREBY DISCLAIMS ANY RESPONSIBILITY AND ALL LIABILITY FOR USER-PROVIDED INFORMATION TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
6.7 Additional Integrated Payment Service Restrictions.
6.7.1 The right to use the Integrated Payment Service is only for sales in a User’s name. A User may not resell, hire, or on any other basis allow third parties to use the Integrated Payment Service to enable such third parties to be paid for their services.
6.7.2 The Integrated Payment Service is only for Items on the Service and not for any other products or services. Users may use the Integrated Payment Service only for Items that comply with the Catalog Rules and that are not on the list of prohibited goods & services.
6.8 Linework retains the right to suspend your right to use the Integrated Payment Service, as further described below.
6.8.1 If there are consistent and objective reasons to suspect that a fraud of any kind whatsoever has been committed or carried out by a User, Linework may immediately suspend the User’s Account while the suspected fraud is investigated (including any in-progress transactions).
6.8.2 In the event Linework is aware of reports, any issues or concerns to Linework (such as suspected illegal sales on the Service, money laundering, spamming, violation of this Terms), Linework may immediately suspend the User’s Account (including any in-progress transactions) while the issue or concern is investigated.
6.8.3 If any User initiates a dispute resolution procedure in relation to a Transaction and there are objective and legitimate reasons to believe that the User has violated applicable laws, breached these Terms and/or misused the Service, Linework may immediately suspend the User’s Account (including any in-progress transactions).
7. INTEGRATED SHIPPING SERVICE
7.1 Except as stated below, the Integrated Shipping Service is applied to every Transaction concluded using the “Buy now/Check out” button. The Buyer will pay for the Integrated Shipping Service at Checkout and the Integrated Shipping Service fee will be held in the internal wallet in escrow. As further described below, the Integrated Shipping Service includes Integrated Shipping Labels and the Custom Shipping option. Items regulated as hazardous materials are not eligible for the Integrated Shipping Service and must be shipped using the Custom Shipping option. Please refer to Linework Catalog Rules for additional information regarding hazardous materials.
A) If the Seller decides to ship an Item using Integrated Shipping, (i), during Checkout, the Buyer will be able to choose from the shipping providers available within their area (available options will be provided on the Item page) and (ii), after Checkout, a prepaid shipping label will be automatically generated and provided to the Seller who must use that label to send the Item to the Buyer (the “Integrated Shipping Label”). The Seller must use the Integrated Shipping Label provided by Linework; otherwise the Transaction may be cancelled. Once the Transaction is completed (as per Section 6.4), the price of the Item will be released from escrow to the Seller and the Buyer Protection fee and the fee for the Integrated Shipping Service (and any applicable taxes charged on Services) will be released from escrow to Linework.
For its Integrated Shipping Labels option, Linework offers its Users a choice of third-party shipping providers specialising in transport and delivery. Linework may at any time add or remove shipping providers from the list of options available to Users.
With Integrated Shipping, if an Item is lost or damaged during the shipping process, the Buyer is eligible to be reimbursed as part of Buyer Protection as described in Section 5.
The Seller may be entitled to compensation for a lost or damaged Item up to the compensation limit set by each shipping provider.
The integrated shipping services available are listed in the listing/buying page, we suggest Users to check the Terms applied by those shipping services.
B) If the Seller decides to independently ship an Item (i.e., without using an Integrated Shipping Label) or is shipping hazardous materials, the Seller will be responsible for choosing the shipping provider, determining the postage price, and arranging for the label and shipping the Item. The Seller is responsible for estimating a correct and accurate postage price and identifying it in the listing. The Seller must use a shipping provider with tracking enabled. The Seller must, in particular, note down the tracking number for the shipment and send it to the Buyer via a Private Message or the integrated shipping module.
If any Item that is sent by Custom Shipping is lost or damaged in the shipping process:
(i) If the Buyer chooses Custom Shipping offered by the Seller and the Buyer purchases the Item using the “Buy now” button, the Buyer will be reimbursed by Linework as part of the Buyer Protection as described in Section 5.
(ii) The Seller accepts the risks of shipping when using Custom Shipping. Linework will not offer any compensation to the Seller and the Seller will have to reach out to the shipping provider directly regarding any problems in connection with shipping. The Seller therefore should consider insuring Items shipped using a Custom Shipping option in the event the Item is lost or damaged.
7.3 The costs (excluding any applicable taxes) for the available Integrated Shipping Services (“Shipping Fees”) are shown after clicking on an Item in the Catalog on the Item Page. The Shipping Fees (plus any applicable taxes in case of Integrated Shipping Label) are the responsibility of the Buyer, in addition to the purchase price for the Item, the Buyer Protection fee, and applicable taxes.
7.4 As soon as the Buyer has paid the Total Price, Linework informs the Seller that the item was sold and should be shipped to the Seller. The Seller is responsible for shipping out the Item to the Buyer within five (5) working days after Linework provides shipping instructions. If the Seller does not ship the Item within such a 5-day period, Linework has the right to cancel the Transaction and to release the Total Price held in escrow wallet to the Buyer. This refund of the Total Price will constitute the Buyer’s only recourse under their contract with the Seller and these Terms and will be the Buyer’s sole remedy for the cancelled Transaction.
7.5 Integrated Shipping Services are available only in some states or regions. If Integrated Shipping Services are unavailable, the Seller and the Buyer must agree on one of the other shipping methods.
8. PAYING FOR ITEMS
8.1 Linework is authorised to collect fees for the Services in accordance with the prices indicated in the app. In its sole discretion, Linework may update the Price List from time to time (and updates may include price changes) as per Section 1.5 of these Terms. Price List changes will not apply to ongoing Transactions (i.e., Transactions for which a Buyer has already made a payment). The updated Price List shall become effective and replace the prior Price List at the time of posting or such other time as may be indicated by Linework. If you do not agree with or accept the updated Price List, you can choose to not access and use the Service, to terminate your relationship with Linework, and to close your User account (as further described in Section 16.1). You will be deemed to have accepted the updated Price List if you continue to access and use the Service after the updated Price List becomes effective; however, Price List changes will not apply to ongoing Transactions (i.e., Transactions for which a Buyer has already made a payment).
8.2 All prices on the Service are expressed in LWC/USDT and do not include applicable taxes, which are the responsibility of the Users. The amount of LWC paid at the moment of the selling is an amount calculated on the value of the LWC Token at the moment of the selling.
9. INTERACTION AND MESSAGES ON THE SERVICE

- Messages or information that feature advertising;

- Spam or mass mailing messages of any kind (e.g., when a message is sent to more than five Users simultaneously or when the same message is copied and sent to Users who have not asked to receive the message);

- Messages of an unlawful nature or otherwise intended to cause harm to other Users and/or the Service; or

Linework may use automated software that is designed to use algorithms to detect contents of Private Messages that are contrary to good moral standards and public order or that are inappropriate, insulting, or defamatory. If the automated software detects a Private Message containing any such content, without limiting other remedies available to Linework:
- The Private Message and User may be blocked and/or the Private Message may be hidden from the User to whom it was sent and
- The User who sent such Private Message may receive a warning reminding the User of their obligation to comply with these Terms and informing the User that Linework may take further steps such as suspending the User’s Account in case of further violations.
Linework use of such automated software does not create a monitoring obligation on Linework nor an obligation to actively search for unlawful activities and/or content on the Service and, to the extent permitted by the applicable law, does not give rise to any liability on Linework.
9.2 A User has the right to write a review concerning another User only if a Transaction was completed between the Users. The review may be published on the Service. No compensation is given to Users or to Linework in exchange for online reviews. A User’s review on another User must always be fair and honest. LIES AND INSULTS ARE FORBIDDEN. Linework does not check reviews prior to publication on the Service by Users.
