Mogoče je TLG ugotovil, da so cene višje kot v tovarni sami in bo odprl svojo štacuno in sesul konkurenco. Zdaj ko imajo poln dostop do celega prodajnega nabora takoj ko se pojavi, to z lahkoto naredijo.
In še kup podobnih zadev lahko v svojo korist obrnejo.
Res bo zanimivo spremljati dogodke.

Kontrola trga, nič drugega. Po mojem.
+ seveda še dodaten zaslužek (BL fee je 3% od prodanega).

Prebral sem tudi, da bodo omejili na prodajo izključno LEGO robe, tako da 3rd party robe ala Brickarms in Brickmania in podobno ne bo več na BL. Sicer pa še več monopola... upam da ne na našo škodo.

Sem jim že napisal svoje. Će ga bodo karkoli srali, bo folk šel pač drugam. Saj znanje je, katalogi tudi, rabi se platforma in gremo naprej po svoje.

Lego je kupil tudi Soho bricks, tako da bo zgleda še to konkurenco zaprl.

@Skandinavc FH: Problem je v tem, da je zaradi takih "štosov", kot je (se bojim da bo) ta z bricklinkom, že ta prvi konj bolj shiran. Da bi jih mel pa več, pa bi bil vsak bolj lačen od prejšnjega in pol ne bi vedel a maš konje al hrte. "Hi konjiček!!!"

@MajklSpajkl: tale štos z bricklinkom bo TLG ubil sam. Drgač pa v hobi vlagaš toliko, kolikor želiš oz je mogoče, enkrat več, drugič manj. Tud hrti so lepi, brez dodatnih maščob :wink: :D

Pa koliko spremljam par youtuberjev, jih je tudi TLG vzel pod okrilje, zdaj že javno. Tako da se scena zelo privatizira. Mene sicer ne gane, ker me tudi mnenja YT ne ganejo. Naj delajo kar hočejo.

Aja pa še to sem zasledil; kocke se zdaj že prodajajo dejansko vsepovsod, tudi eksluzive. Vsak prodajalec, ki ima 5 minut časa, še Lego prodaja. V tem loncu so že vse spletne trgovine...

A ni cilj večine, da pridejo do cekinov? In ko so dovolj zanimivi/dobijo neko vrednost, se prodajo.
Jaz samo ne razumem pohlepa tistih, ki jim nikdar ni dovolj, tudi ko imajo več kot za neko normalno življenje. Kaj šele tistih, ki imajo več kakor bodo lahko porabili.

Budale smo mi, ki jih financiramo na tak ali drugačen način.

Such terms and conditions are between you and the seller, we are not a party to those seller terms conditions, and such seller terms and conditions do not modify or amend these Terms.
Sellers may cancel orders at any time, including after receiving payment if for example (and without limitation) the seller does not have the items that you ordered in stock. If an order is cancelled after payment, you will be entitled to a refund from the seller.

2. Items for Sale:
If you are a registered seller on the Site, you agree to comply with the following rules for selling. We reserve the right to delete without notice any items listed in your store on the Site that in our judgement do not comply with these rules. Repeated violations of these rules may result in the suspension of your selling privileges.
1. LEGO Brand Only: All items listed for sale must be LEGO brand products unless they fall into either of the two categories listed below – 6. 2.5 (Custom Sets) or 6.2.6 (Non LEGO Items). Other brands of building toys are not permitted.
2. Items Pending Official Release: Items may not be listed prior to their official LEGO release date, either as custom lots or under related catalog entries.
3. Replicas and Counterfeit Items: All LEGO items must be original and genuine. Replica boxes, photocopies of instructions, or any other counterfeit listings are not permitted.
4. Modified Parts: All parts listed in your store must be genuine LEGO parts in their original, unmodified condition. Custom printed, engraved, chromed, or painted parts are not permitted.
5. Custom Sets: Custom sets or instructions may be listed, provided they do not infringe on any intellectual property rights, including those of the LEGO Group. Custom sets may not contain modified parts or non LEGO parts such as lighting kits or electric motors.
6. Non LEGO Items: Certain non LEGO items that are deemed by BrickLink to be part of LEGO fan culture may be listed. These include literature about LEGO products, LEGO memorabilia, and items used to make custom sets (e.g. stickers, instructions, and boxes).
7. No Animated GIF Files: If you are using your own image of an item, the image cannot be an animated GIF or the animated GIF must contain only 1 frame.
8. Exact quantity: The quantity of the item that you are listing for sale must not be greater than the quantity you have on hand. The only exception to this is a custom LEGO magazine that has to be pre-ordered and the buyer is made aware of this in the item description.
9. Comments Field: You can include the price of the shipping costs in the comments field but you can't hard-code the price of the item for sale in the comments field. Putting an exchange rate in the comments field is prohibited.
10. Item Condition (New/Used) and Sub-Condition for Sets (Complete/Incomplete/Sealed) must adhere to their respective Definitions. Sets which have been previously built must be listed as Used. Sets without Minifigs must be listed as Incomplete.
11. MOC Packages. If you offer for sale in your store bricks and build instructions for a design made available by a designer (a “MOC Package”), then you must (i) offer to sell all the bricks that are necessary to build the model represented by the MOC Package and (ii) deliver or otherwise make available to the buyers of the MOC Package the build instructions for the MOC Package.
12. Designers’ MOCs and Designs. Without written consent of a designer, or except as otherwise permitted herein, you may not sell, reproduce or create derivative works of any designer's models, images or designs published on the Site, including at moc.BrickLink.com or within the Studio Gallery portion of the Site.
13. Compliance with Laws. You as a seller agree to comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, including without limitation all laws regarding ecommerce, distance selling, consumer protection, commercial electronic messages, privacy, disclosures that must be made to buyers in advance of a sale (including without limitation the terms and conditions applicable to each sale), affording buyers’ the right to review, accept and reject such disclosures, and providing to buyers copies of the terms and conditions of sale.
3. Fees Payable by Sellers To BrickLink.
Fees for Sale of Bricks and Related Items. Sellers are required to pay BrickLink a fee based on the final dollar amount of all orders for individual bricks and orders for other items which orders are received by the seller during the period of each calendar month. Fees are charged based on the final dollar amount for each individual order that a seller receives during a monthly billing period (“BrickLink Store Fee”). The fee is calculated for every order batch (order batch is every new order or addition to an existing order) at the time an order is submitted to a seller's store. BrickLink Store Fees are calculated in accordance with the then-current Fee Table. The following is the current Fee Table as of the date set forth at the top of these Terms:
Fee table
Order Batch Total BrickLink Store Fee
$0 USD - $500 USD 3% of the Order Total
$500.01 USD - $1,000 USD 3% of the initial $500 ($15),
plus 2% of the remaining total
Over $1,000 USD 3% of the initial $500 ($15),
plus 2% of the initial $500.01 - $1,000 ($10),
plus 1% of the remaining total
Fees for the Sale of MOC Packages. In addition to the BrickLink Store Fee, BrickLink charges each seller a transaction fee based on the seller’s price of each MOC Package. The fee is for all orders of MOC Packages received by the seller during the period of each calendar month. The fee is calculated for every MOC Package at the time an order is submitted to a seller's store. When sellers make a sale of a MOC Package on MOC Shop, the seller is charged a transaction fee of 5% of the net MOC Package price (list price before value added tax (VAT), shipping and handling and other fees are added) (such transaction fee is referred to as the “MOC Store Fee”). This percentage does not include the shipping cost or tax. The MOC Store Fee is be added to your overall BrickLink bill.
Design Fees. In addition to the MOC Store Fee payable by sellers to BrickLink, design fees are owed to designers for MOC Package orders received by sellers as described in these Terms (the “Design Fee”). This Design Fee, which is set by the designer, will only show on your bill if you have registered as a seller on BrickLink MOC Shop and have sold MOC Packages for someone else’s design.
In these Terms, references to the term “Fees” means the BrickLink Store Fees, the MOC Store Fees, and the Design Fees.
All Fees due to BrickLink are calculated and must be paid in US Dollars (USD). All BrickLink Store Fees and MOC Store Fees are based on the net price of each order item. If you have elected to have your store be enabled for value added tax (VAT), the VAT is automatically included in the total price shown to buyers according to their region. In all other instances, any other taxes (e.g., sales taxes, goods and services taxes, etc.) must be invoiced and collected by the seller.
1. Account Balance and Amount Due: Your account balance for Fees due to BrickLink is the sum of Fees from all orders received minus the sum of all Fee payments received by BrickLink from you at any given time. This can differ from the amount due you received on your bill, including without limitation if any orders were cancelled after the bill was generated. The amount due is your account balance calculated at the time of billing which is on shortly after the first of each calendar month for orders and sales the prior calendar month. For clarity, the overall account balance owned will include the BrickLink Store Fees, MOC Store Fees, and Design Fees. Please note that we cannot reissue your bill after the bill has been issued to you, including without limitation if orders are cancelled.
2. Billing: Seller bills are generated and emailed to sellers monthly for the previous month’s billing cycle. A “billing cycle” lasts from the first day of the calendar month until the last day of the calendar month. The due date to pay each bill is the 5th of the second calendar month following the end of the billing cycle. By way of example, the bill for the December billing cycle will be due February 5th. If payment is not received by the due date, the amount of your bill will be considered past due. Once an amount is past due, there will be another 10 days to submit payment (the “grace period”) before the amount becomes overdue. An overdue balance will be handled in accordance with Section 6.3.9 of these Terms.
We will not send a bill if the amount to be billed does not exceed the minimum bill requirement. The term “minimum bill requirement” differs depending on your location: you will be billed if your current balance at the end of a billing cycle is at least $5.00 if you are located in the USA or at least $10.00 if you are located outside of the USA. If your sales for the current billing cycle have not reached the minimum bill requirement to generate a bill by the end of the month, your Fees will continue to carry over to future billing cycles until the minimum bill requirement is met.
You will need to pay the bills we send to you using one of the payment methods and instructions we make available to you. As of the date set forth above, payment methods include PayPal and Stripe. The payment methods and instructions may be included on the fees page of your account, on the bill, or in the correspondence we send to you with the bill. Additional terms and conditions applicable to your payment might also be included on the fees page of your account, on the bill, or in such correspondence.
3. Billing Adjustment Period: At the end of each billing cycle, there is a 4-day adjustment period for orders received during the billing cycle but which are pending cancellation (Order Cancellation Request (OCR) by the buyer or seller or Non-Paying Buyer (NPB) request by the seller), i.e., the cancellation has been entered into the Site prior to the end of the billing cycle, but the processing of the cancellation has not yet been completed. If an order is cancelled in the same month it was created or during the adjustment period for that billing cycle, the Fee for that order will not be included on your bill for that month. All billing cycle adjustment periods end at midnight Eastern Time on the 4th of the month.
4. Fee Adjustments: When a Fee for an order has changed, there will be a fee adjustment on your bill. The Fee for an order will change when an item has been removed from the order via Order Item Removal Request, when additional batches are added, or when an order is cancelled.
5. Fees for Batch Orders: If an order has multiple batches, the total Fees will be the sum of the Fees calculated for each batch. If a batch is added to an order which has already been billed, the Fees will be reset and then recalculated. The recalculated Fee will be on the next bill along with an adjustment entry to reflect the Fee change.
6. Fees for Cancelled Orders: Fees for an order are charged in the month in which the order is created. If you have an order that is still in Order Cancellation Request (OCR)/Non-Paying Buyer (NPB) or Non-Paying Buyer- Accept Penalty (NPX) status that has not yet been cancelled at the end of a billing cycle and its adjustment period, the charge will still be on your bill. You will be credited for any cancelled orders in the month in which the orders are cancelled. Fees are not refunded for orders cancelled through a Non-Responding Seller Alert or a Non-Shipping Seller Alert. Orders which have been purged from the system (6 months from the order date) cannot be cancelled, nor can their Fees be refunded.
7. Fee Credits: Your account is credited after BrickLink receives payment. After your payment is credited to your account, it will appear in your My Fees page in the credits section. If the payment is not credited immediately after you have paid, please contact Customer Support. Payments are credited when they are cleared based on the payment method you have selected.
8. Fees for Sellers with Store Prices in Currency other than US Dollar: The system calculates the Fees in US dollars using the exchange rate set forth in Section 9 and in effect as of the date of the latest order batch. When another batch is added to an existing order, the Fee is recalculated using the most recent exchange rate at the time the additional order batch is submitted.
If you have selected that your store be a VAT enabled store, then your Fee will be based on the sum of the order net prices for the items in the order which net prices exclude VAT (i.e., we do not charge Fees on VAT amounts).
9. Non-Payment of Fees: Sellers who do not pay the fees due by the end of the grace period will have their selling privileges revoked. Any seller account with an overdue balance will receive a reminder on or shortly after the due date. The revocation of selling privileges for overdue fees will be automatically reinstated once payment in full is received by us. The account may be terminated if at least 1 more month has passed from the time selling privileges were revoked for non-payment of fees and payment has still not been made. If an amount has been overdue for 2 months, however, you will need to contact Customer Support to get your selling privileges for your store reinstated once payment is submitted.
7. Order Cancellation:
The following are some but not all reasons for which you can request an order to be cancelled. The actual cancellation of an order is to be resolved or agreed by the buyer and the seller. If there is a dispute between a buyer or seller regarding whether an order should be cancelled, we reserve the right (but do not have an obligation) to resolve the dispute.
1. As a buyer, you can request an order be cancelled for the following reasons:
• Mutual agreement to cancel between buyer and seller
• Seller did not respond to emails
• Seller did not have items after order was submitted
• Seller listed item with error
• Seller provided a shipping fee that was too high (not clearly stated in the seller’s terms and conditions of sale)
• Seller is using an exchange rate inconsistent with the exchange rates specified in these Terms
• Seller did not ship order after payment was made
• Seller is underage (under the age of majority)
• Seller is no longer a registered seller on the Site
• System problem during order submission (excluding not receiving order notification e-mail)
• Applicable law gives you the right to cancel the order
The following are not valid reasons for a buyer to cancel an order:
• Buyer no longer wants the items - This is the most common example which BrickLink does not tolerate, except where applicable law gives the buyer the right to cancel an order. Buyer should make sure he or she wants to buy the items before submitting an order, not after. After an order is submitted, the buyer enters into a legally binding contract with the seller to purchase all items in that order, subject to the buyer’s rights under applicable law.
• Buyer found items cheaper somewhere else - Buyer should be confident that he or she is ready to pay the asking prices before submitting an order. After an order is submitted, the buyer enters into a legally binding contract with the seller to purchase all items in that order.
2. As a seller, you can request an order be cancelled for the following reasons:
• Mutual agreement to cancel between buyer and seller
• Buyer's email address bounced
• Buyer did not pay for order
• Buyer did not respond to emails
• Buyer did not comply with store terms
• Buyer does not have enough funds to pay
• Buyer demanded a lower price on items
• Buyer submitted a bogus order
• Buyer no longer wants to purchase items
• Buyer found items elsewhere
• Package cannot be delivered to buyer's address
• Package returned with incorrect address
• Buyer is underage (under the age of majority)
• Buyer is no longer a registered user of the Site
• System problem during order submission (excluding not receiving order notification e-mail)
• Buyer requested falsifying customs declarations or requested the order be marked as "gift" in order to avoid customs fees.
Sellers who repeatedly cancel orders due to lack of stock or inventory of items listed on the seller’s store may have their selling privileges revoked or suspended.
8. Designer Terms:
If you upload your designs to the Site, then you agree to the terms and conditions applicable to designers on the Site, which terms and conditions may be found at the following link: https://www.bricklink.com/v3/terms_of_s ... igner.page (the “Designer Terms”). The Designer Terms are hereby incorporated into these Terms by this reference as if fully stated in these Terms.
We may update and change the Designer Terms from time to time and we will notify you of the updates and changes and you will have an opportunity to accept the revised Designer Terms. If you do not agree to the revised Designer Terms, then BrickLink is entitled to terminate these Designer Terms and disable your account. By using the Site or uploading any designs to the Site following such notice, you agree to the updated Designer Terms.
The following are the Designer Terms as of the date set forth at the top of these Terms.
1. Designing My Own Creation and Uploading Content to Studio Gallery:
The Designer Terms apply if you (i) upload a design for a model or creation using bricks (“My Own Creation” or “MOC”), (ii) upload an image of a brick model of a design (with or without uploading or making available Build Instructions (as defined below) for the model, or any parts lists necessary to build that model) for a creation using digital bricks into the Studio Gallery portion of the Site (a “Studio Gallery Design”), and (iii) otherwise upload build instructions for a particular brick model (“Build Instructions”, and collectively with the MOC and the Studio Gallery Designs, “Your Designs” or “Designs”).
If you upload the Build Instructions for one of Your Designs, then the bricks that are compatible with that Design may be offered for sale and sold by you or by other users that are sellers of bricks.
By designing and uploading Your Designs, you agree that you and all aspects of Your Designs comply with these Terms.
You agree that you will not seek to prevent a seller from either or both (i) selling bricks necessary to make the design or model representing Your Design and/or (ii) providing to brick buyers the Build Instructions you provide for Your Designs and in each case of (i) and (ii) you hereby authorize the selling of such bricks and the sale and distribution of all such Build Instructions by any and all sellers.
If bricks for Your Designs receive a valid order in a store on the Site, you are obligated to follow the rules of buying and selling as noted in these Terms, including without limitation the Seller Terms.
You are solely responsible for Your Designs and related content and the consequences of submitting and publishing Your Designs and related content on the Site. You affirm, represent, and warrant that you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to publish, display, and sell all of Your Designs and related content you submit.
With respect to Your Designs and related content that you submit, post or upload to the Site, you hereby grant to BrickLink an irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, assignable, and sublicenseable license for the duration of applicable legal protection of any intellectual property right attached to Your Designs, to use, modify (except as prohibited by applicable law) and translate as necessary, reproduce, communicate, and display Your Designs and related content (including Build Instructions) on the Site and to promote the Site in any media formats and through any media channels. Where applicable by law, you hereby waive your moral rights in Your Designs, to the extent necessary to give effect to the above license.
2. BrickLink does not transfer legal ownership of any of Your Designs to any seller or buyer of bricks. As a designer, you also hereby grant each user of the Site a non-exclusive license to access Your Designs (other than Your Designs posted by you in the private portion of your account, e.g., My Studio) and other content through the Site and to use, copy, or communicate Your Designs and other content as permitted through the functionality and features of the Site and under these Terms. You further agree that the content you submit to the Site, including but not limited to Your Designs, will not contain, use or infringe any third party copyrighted material, or material that is subject to other third party proprietary rights (including trademarks, image or personality rights, or other intellectual property rights), unless you have permission from the rightful owner of the material or you are otherwise legally entitled to post the material and to grant BrickLink all of the license rights granted herein. You warrant the content you submit to the Site will not result in BrickLink's infringement of any intellectual property right or other right of a third party.
3. Each model must include the following components in order to be published on MOC Shop:
• Photo(s) of Your Design (PNG or JPG) - required
• Design Title and Description - required
• Parts List - required for sale items only
• Build Instructions - required
4. All users will be able to browse, rate and review Your Designs (other than Your Designs uploaded by you to the private area of your account, e.g., My Studio) to help sellers decide what bricks to stock up next in order to offer for sale bricks and Build Instructions based on Your Designs (“MOC Packages”). When you upload one of Your Designs onto the Site, you must comply with the following guidelines and comply with these Terms. We reserve the right to delete without any notice any of Your Designs and related content included on the Site that do not comply with any of the following rules, our policies or these Terms.
• Your Designs must be constructible: Any person will be able to actually build your model using unforced, proper clutch connections.
• Your Designs must be original: Any element you include in Your Design must be your own original work. If you’re submitting a Design based on an existing LEGO model, it must be your own creative work.
• Your Designs must be your own: You must be the original creator of the model represented by Your Design and you must have the exclusive right to submit your model and Your Design to the Site. This means:
o Your Design submissions are your own work and no one else’s. The only exception to this rule is if you are the parent or legal guardian submitting a model Design on behalf of your child under the age of majority. The same policies and guidelines apply for kids’ designs. Any model or Design submitted by you in violation of the foregoing may be taken down without notice.
o You agree not to upload images that belong to someone else as a part of your listing of Your Designs, even if that person gives you permission. (If you want someone else’s model to be available on MOC Shop or within Studio Gallery, please ask them to post it in their account on the Site.)
o For collaborative models, each person is recognized as a designer even though one person (the account holder) is designated to coordinate their team and relationship with BrickLink.
o You can submit a Design for a model based off an idea someone else has already submitted, as long as your work is original. For example, multiple people can submit original designs of the same theme or different designs of the same object.
o Your Design does not contain and is not based on any third party copyrighted material, or material that is subject to third party proprietary rights (including trademarks and other intellectual property rights).
If Your Design has been infringed upon, please submit a notice of your claim of copyright infringement per Section 25 of these Terms.
• One submission per MOC set: Please have one listing dedicated to one set or kit, not a series of products. Your MOC Package should not contain a whole series of related designs. While it's possible we could consider your MOC as a starting point for a new theme or series, any follow-up or related models should be listed separately.
• Your Design submissions must meet criteria: Each model must include the necessary and appropriate components in order to remain published. If it comes to our attention that a listing does not fulfill the requirements or is not an acceptable submission, the listing may be removed at any time without notice. If your listing has been removed or not approved for sale, try reevaluating your listing and submit again.
• Your Designs must show relevant content: Your listing may only include content relevant to the display of that item. Each listing must accurately and completely describe the item in an appropriate category.
• Your Design submissions must be complete: Your listings must be complete with all of the necessary files. While you may add or edit content (until MOC gets stocked by a store), please don't submit incomplete designs, placeholders, or try to "reserve an idea" to pre-empt someone else. Such listings are not allowed and will be removed.
• Your Designs must abide by legal constraints: We are not obligated to evaluate any Design submission for license conflicts, including without limitation because there are too many potential issues and we cannot know when a particular Design or model will go for sale. However, listings may be removed by us at any time if legal issues arise or a third party makes an allegation regarding Your Design. To avoid this, you should do your own research for potential conflicts before submitting a Design.
• Parts lists cannot be modified: You cannot modify parts lists for MOCs that are currently available for sale in a store(s).
5. MOC Design Fees: There is no fee charged for uploading one of Your Designs and no fee charged for designing a MOC for sale. At the time of uploading of one of Your Designs to the Site for sale by sellers on the Site, you will set an amount between $0.00 and $10.00 which is known as the “Design Fee”. A Design Fee is the price of your electronic and/or printable manuals for instructions on how to build the brick model that conforms to Your Design for the MOC (i.e., the “Build Instructions”). BrickLink does not transfer legal ownership of any intellectual property rights in Your Designs to the seller or the buyer of a MOC.
Each time a seller of your MOC makes a sale of bricks and Build Instructions corresponding to one of Your Designs, you will receive the Design Fee that you set for the MOC.
As a designer on BrickLink, you agree to the following guidelines:
0. Account Balance and Amount Earned: Your account balance at any point in time is the sum of all Design Fees received by us from sellers minus the sum of all payments made to you and other deductions noted in these Terms. Your account balance, minus the transaction fees charged by PayPal and the BrickLink commission, will be paid to the PayPal account that you designate in your account. Payments will be made on or about the fifth day of each month for sales in the prior month.
1. What to Expect: We will pay the Design Fees into your account, subject to various deductions as described in these Terms.
2. How to Receive Payment: BrickLink credits your account via PayPal.com. PayPal service charges (2.9% + $0.30 per transaction) are levied to the designers when receiving payments of the Design Fee. On or about the first day of each month, we will send a report to the e-mail address you have on file that will contain the amount of Design Fees paid or to be paid for the month. Please keep for reference. Your Design Fee might be subject to withholding tax and we will deduct from the Design Fee any such withholding. The amount posted to your account will be the total after withholding tax, Pay Pal fees and other amounts noted in these Terms have been deducted.
3. Minimum Payout Amount: If your account balance is less than $5.00 if you are located in the U.S. or less than $10.00 if you are located outside of the U.S., then we will not credit your PayPal account the amount of your BrickLink account balance until such time as the account balance exceeds these amounts.
4. Credits - After a Design Fee payment posts to your account, your balance will be updated accordingly. If the payment is not credited in your account balance, please contact Customer Support.
5. Refunds - When an order for a MOC Package is cancelled and processed by the seller within 30 days of the order date, the Design Fee for that order is set to $0.00. When an order is cancelled through a Non-Responding Seller Alert or a Non-Shipping Seller Alert within 30 days of order date, the Design Fee for that order is set to $0.00. If an order is cancelled after your Design Fee has been paid, the Design Fee for the order will reduce your account balance. After 30 days from order date, the Design Fee will remain unchanged. After an order is purged from the system (6 months from the order date), the order cannot be cancelled and the Design Fee remains unchanged. For clarity, we do not pay you and Design Fees on orders that get canceled.
6. Fees for sellers with store prices in currency other than US dollars: The system calculates the Design Fee in US dollars using the exchange rate of the latest order batch.
7. Currency: All Design Fees are calculated and paid in US dollars (USD)
8. BrickLink Commission: As compensation for making the Site available to designers, BrickLink reserves the right in the future to take a percentage of the Design Fee as a commission or transaction fee, including with respect to designs that are already available. In such event, you will have the right to remove Your Designs from the Site or establish a new Design Fee for Your Designs.
9. Exchange Rates:
If you are a seller and have a store on the Site, pricing of your items will be set up with exchange rates. Exchange rates for currency conversion are provided by XE.com. Use of this website constitutes acceptance of the XE.com Terms of Use.
If you are a buyer, please note that as a result of the exchange rate conversion, the actual price may vary from the price shown in the store.
1. If you are a seller, then in your seller terms and conditions, you can mention currency conversion and that your prices are converted using xe.com rates but only if it's consistent with how the currency conversion is actually done - the system automatically converts prices using exchange rates from xe.com updated once an hour and order totals are converted using the latest exchange rate in the system as of the time the order is submitted. You don't need to mention currency conversion at all since the system automatically puts an explanation how currency conversion is done on your store terms page.
2. Using other exchange rates is prohibited. Currency conversion is done the same way using the same exchange rates in all stores.
3. Hard-coding an exchange rate in your seller store terms, splash page, store banner or anywhere else in your store is prohibited. Since exchange rates are updated once per day, the hard-coded exchange rate would not correspond to the actual rate that is being used at any given moment. You can instead instruct your buyers to check the XE.com website to see what the current rates are.
4. The Site uses current exchange rates from XE.com to convert prices between the below currencies. Exchange rates on the Site are downloaded from XE.com once per day. Exchange rates provided by XE.com contain the rates and inverted rates for the US Dollar as the base currency (ex. 1 USD = ? EUR and 1 EUR = ? USD). Rates which do not include the US Dollar (ex. 1 EUR = ? GBP) are calculated using a cross rate (ex. USD to GBP rate divided by USD to EUR rate). Rates contain up to 10 decimals. The exchange rates on the XE.com website are updated more frequently and thus the exchange rate on the XE.com website may not match the exchange rate currently in the systems that support the Site exactly. If the system fails to download the most recent exchange rate, the most recent exchange rate in the system is used.
As required by the XE.com Terms of Use, the actual exchange rate that is used to convert prices cannot be displayed anywhere on this Site, including without limitation in your store. For current rates, please visit XE.com.
Prices and order grand totals are converted in all stores the same way using the same exchange rates.
If more currencies are added to the system, you automatically accept for prices in those currencies to be converted using these exchange rates. If BrickLink abandons the multi-currency system on the Site and moves back to all prices in US Dollars, prices in currencies other than the US Dollar will be converted to the US Dollar using the most recent exchange rate in the system.

10. Buying and Selling Offenses:

You agree that you will not:
1. Non-Paying Buyer: As a buyer, fail to pay the seller for items after you have submitted an order, unless you are legally entitled to withhold payment. If you have experienced a non-paying buyer, you may submit a Non-Paying Buyer Alert.

• Using user contact information obtained from BrickLink or the Site or using any feature of the Site to offer to sell items outside of the Site.
• Using the BrickLink messaging systems to conduct business either offering items for sale or requesting items to be sold that would circumvent buyers from buying those items via submitting an order in the applicable seller's store on the Site.
• Using our Discussion Forum to conduct business by offering items for sale not listed in the seller's store on the Site or to inquire about items for sale and offering contact information.
• After an order is submitted, seller offering to the buyer for sale any items which are identical to the items listed in the seller's store on the Site or to the items in the order submitted in a manner that would circumvent submitting an order in that seller’s store or adding to an existing order placed to that seller’s store.
• Seller cancelling a successful order with the intent of receiving a fee refund from BrickLink for that order.

It is permitted to put a link (such as www.mystore.com) in feedback comments which redirects directly into the seller's store on the Site.
8. Feedback Extortion: As a buyer, demand additional goods, services or refunds over and above what was agreed in the original transaction with the threat of negative Feedback if the seller does not comply with such demand. Sellers are not allowed to require buyers to leave positive Feedback or revise existing Feedback in exchange for shipping items, completing refund requests or providing monetary compensation. Sellers are, however, allowed to ask the buyer to leave positive Feedback at the end of a successful transaction. Please note that we can't accept reports of Feedback extortion received through email outside of the Site because these can be easily falsified. In order to protect yourself, we recommend you always use the BrickLink messaging system to communicate with your buyer or seller. If you have experienced feedback extortion, please contact Customer Support.
9. Sale of Plagiarized Designs: Offer to sell, sell or provide MOC designs that violate others’ intellectual property rights, publicity or privacy rights as it is expressly forbidden by these Terms. Sellers who facilitate such transactions will incur penalties ranging from a warning to account suspension or termination depending on the severity of circumstances.

Sellers may not offer any additional items for sale in such e-mail. For Wanted List notification emails, sellers may not 1) put any links to web pages that are outside of BrickLink; 2) include a phone number, e-mail address or snail mail address; 3) include any other contact information leading to the purchase of the item(s) on the wanted list notification.

27. Governing Law; Severability, Waiver, Entire Agreement; Survival:
Except as provided below, these Terms together with all our policies are governed by and construed in accordance with Danish law, excluding conflicts of law provisions which would result in another jurisdiction’s law governing these Terms, provided this stipulation is not in conflict with mandatory rules of the state in which your abode is situated. Such rules shall remain unaffected. For United States customers only, these Terms together with all our policies are governed by and construed in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act and the law of the State of Connecticut, excluding its conflicts of law provisions.
If any provision of these Terms (other than the Class Action Waiver) shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions or the arbitrability of Disputes. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Class Action Waiver is found to be illegal or unenforceable, (i) Disputes with users located in the United States will be decided by a State or Federal court of competent jurisdiction in the State of Connecticut and (ii) Disputes with users located in any other country will be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction in Denmark.
BrickLink’s failure to enforce any of these Terms is not a waiver of such term.
These Terms are the entire agreement between you and BrickLink regarding the Site or the subject matter of these Terms and supersede all prior or contemporaneous negotiations, discussions or agreements between you and BrickLink about this Site or regarding such subject matter.
The proprietary rights, disclaimer of warranties, representations made by you, indemnities, limitations of liability and general provisions shall survive any termination of these Terms.
28. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration; Class Action Waiver:
If you reside in the EEA/UK/Switzerland/Australia/New Zealand/Turkey/Japan/Brazil, then only this first paragraph of this Section 28 will apply to you. BrickLink will try and solve any disagreements or disputes that arise between you and BrickLink promptly and efficiently. You and BrickLink may mutually agree to refer any disagreement or disputed matter to resolution proceedings other than in a court, but You and BrickLink are not restricted from bringing court proceedings at any time. The European Commission provides for an online dispute resolution platform, which you can access here: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/.. If you would like to bring a matter to our attention, please <email> us at legal@bricklink.com with the following information: (1)your name, (2) your address, (3) a written description of your disagreement or dispute, and (4) a description of the specific relief you seek. We are not obliged nor willing to participate in dispute settlement proceedings before a consumer arbitration board or scheme.
If you reside outside the EEA/UK/Switzerland/Australia/New Zealand/ Turkey/Japan/Brazil, then the terms below in this Section 28 apply to you.
This Section 28 facilitates the prompt and efficient resolution of any claim or controversy, suit, action, or other dispute, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort – including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence – or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this provision (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below) that may arise between you and BrickLink arising out of or relating to these Terms (“Disputes”).
0. Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution: For all Disputes, whether pursued in court or arbitration, you must first give BrickLink an opportunity to resolve the Dispute which is first done by <emailing> to us at legal@bricklink.com the following information: (1)your name, (2) your address, (3) a written description of your Dispute, and (4) a description of the specific relief you seek. If we do not resolve the Dispute within 45 days after receiving your notification, then you may pursue your Dispute in arbitration as provided in this Section.
1. Individual Binding Arbitration. Please read this Section carefully. It provides that you and BrickLink agree that, except as expressly provided above in Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution or below in this Section, all Disputes shall be resolved by binding individual arbitration as provided in this Section 28. Arbitration replaces the right to go to court, and by entering into this arbitration agreement you acknowledge that you are waiving your right to bring claims and seek remedies in court, including the right to a judge or jury trial, and that your Disputes will be resolved by an arbitrator, not a court. The arbitrator must follow this arbitration agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court, but may not award any damages disclaimed or limited by these Terms unless, as provided in this Agreement such disclaimer or limitations are not enforceable under applicable law. The arbitrator’s decision is final and binding. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that we may seek injunctive and equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction and without having to proceed through arbitration as provided in this Section.
2. Conduct of the Arbitration. The arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator. The arbitration shall be commenced as an individual arbitration only, and shall in no event be commenced as a class or collective arbitration or a consolidated or representative action or arbitration. All Disputes submitted to arbitration under these Terms shall be governed by the law specified in Section 29. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing, the arbitral award shall be made no more than 30 calendar days after the close of the arbitral hearing. Any failure to render the award within this time period shall not affect the validity of the award. The award shall be a reasoned award, including an explanation of the basis of the arbitrator’s decision, and shall be in writing. Such award shall be final and binding on the parties thereto. The prevailing party may present the award to a court of competent jurisdiction for confirmation. An arbitral award may be confirmed in a court of competent jurisdiction.
3. Arbitration Procedures. If you are located within the United States, the then-applicable American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “US Rules”) shall apply to any arbitration under these Terms, and if you are located outside the United States, the then-applicable United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (“UNCITRAL”) Arbitration Rules (“International Rules”) shall apply to any arbitration under these Terms, except to the extent the provisions of this Section vary from the applicable US Rules or International Rules. In the case of the International Rules, the appointing authority shall be the AAA and the case shall be administered by AAA in accordance with its “Procedures for Cases under the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules.” In the case of the US Rules, the arbitration shall be conducted and administered by the AAA. If the AAA refuses or declines to be the appointing authority or to conduct or administer an arbitration for any reason, then JAMS will be the appointing authority and JAMS will conduct and administer that arbitration. In such event, the thenapplicable JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures shall apply to that arbitration and shall be the US Rules for that arbitration for purposes of this Section. If the JAMS refuses or declines to be the appointing authority or to conduct or administer an arbitration for any reason, then BrickLink may specify a different organization to be the appointing authority and to conduct and administer that arbitration. Further, these Terms concern interstate commerce such that the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) will govern the arbitrability of all Disputes. However, the arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and the applicable statutes of limitations or conditions precedent to arbitration.
4. Payment of Arbitration Fees and Costs: As long as you make a request in writing to BrickLink at <emailing> to us at legal@bricklink.com prior to the commencement of the arbitration, including without limitation as a part of the pre-arbitration claim resolution contemplated by Section 28.1 above, BrickLink will pay all arbitration filing fees and AAA or JAMS or alternative authority hearing fees and any arbitrator's hearing fees, costs and expenses upon your written request to the arbitrator given at or before the first evidentiary hearing in the arbitration. But, you will still be responsible for all additional fees and costs that you incur in the arbitration which include but are not limited to attorneys’ fees or expert witnesses. In addition to any fees and costs recoverable under applicable law, if you provide notice and negotiate in good faith with BrickLink as provided in the Section above titled “Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution” and the arbitrator concludes that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to recover reasonable attorney’s fees and costs as determined by the arbitrator.
5. Location of Arbitration: If you are not located in the United States, you or BrickLink may initiate arbitration in a mutually agree location that is reasonably convenient for you and BrickLink.
If you are located in the United States, you or BrickLink may initiate arbitration in the States of Connecticut USA, or the federal judicial district that includes the address provided in your notification to BrickLink of Pre-Arbitration Claims Resolution.
6. Class Action Waiver: You agree not to participate as a representative or member of any class of claimants proceeding against BrickLink in a judicial forum or an arbitral forum, including a class, representative, collective, consolidated, or private attorney general action. The arbitrators may not consolidate more than one person’s or entity’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class, collective, or representative proceeding or claims unless both you and BrickLink specifically agree to do so following initiation of the arbitration in a writing signed by authorized representatives of each party. If you choose to pursue your Disputes in court by opting out of this provision, as specified in Section 28.8 below, this Class Action Waiver will not apply to you.
7. Class Action Waiver Opt-Out; Small Claims Court: Notwithstanding the other terms in this Section, you or BrickLink may choose to pursue a Dispute in court and not by arbitration if (a) the Dispute may be and is initiated in small claims court in the United States; or (b) YOU OPT-OUT OF THE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES IN THIS SECTION WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU FIRST AGREE TO THE THESE TERMS (the “Opt-Out Deadline”). You may optout of the arbitration terms in this Section by mailing written notification to BrickLink, Legal Department, 16815 Von Karman Ave. Ste 100, Irvine, CA 92606. Your written notification must include (1) your name and your BrickLink account name and number, (2) your address, and (3) a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with BrickLink through arbitration. Your decision to opt-out of this arbitration provision will have no adverse effect on your relationship with BrickLink. Any opt-out request received after the Opt-Out Deadline is not valid and you must pursue your Dispute(s) in arbitration or small claims court as described in this Section.
If you are located in the United States and have elected to pursue Disputes in court by opting out of the arbitration terms in this Section, then you hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of the United States federal courts located in the State of Connecticut, United States of America, for all Disputes and, if those federal courts do not have jurisdiction over you or the Dispute, then the state courts located in the State of Connecticut, United States of America. The jurisdiction of those courts shall be exclusive, provided that either party may seek injunctive relief or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction.
8. Jury Trial Waiver: If you elect to pursue Disputes in court by opting out of arbitration in this Section then, to the extent jury trials are permitted under applicable law, each party hereby waives, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, its right to a jury trial for any cause of action, claim, or suit arising out of or related to these Terms.
29. Assignment:
You may not assign these Terms to any person or entity without our prior written consent. We may, without your consent, assign these Terms and the rights granted to us in these Terms to (a) an affiliated entity, including a direct or indirect parent company, subsidiary, or sister company, and (b) a third party in connection with a merger, reorganization or the sale or transfer of all or substantially all of our assets related to the Site.
