Each User may, at its sole discretion, elect to connect directly with such other User to transact with such other User for the sale/purchase or rental/borrowing of any such Fashion Items displayed on the Platform. A Seller or Lender is the sole offeror and issuer of the Fashion Item for purchase or rental to Buyers/Renters. ÀLA.HAUSSE is not a provider of goods, products, or services, and any such products or services are offered and/or provided solely by the Seller/Lender for sale or rent. Subject to Section 8 (Fees and Payments), pricing relating to Fashion Items posted or displayed on the Service may change at any time without notice to you. The Seller/Lender is also solely responsible for the sale/rental and shipment of the Fashion Item or Items purchased by the Buyer or Renters.

For more information relating to the fees detailed herein, please visit our User Guide. 

Seller Fees. Listing an item on the Platform is free for Sellers, and ÀLA.HAUSSE does not charge Sellers any fees in connection with the listing of any Fashion Items thereon.  However, ÀLA.HAUSSE does charge the Seller the Service Fee, and a tiered commission on any Fashion Items sold by a Seller through the Platform, such amount of commission which is determined and dependent on the Listing Price of the Fashion Item (“Commission”). Commission will be deducted from the aggregate amount of the Listing Price set by the Seller and paid by the Buyer to the Seller. Sellers are responsible for arranging for the shipment of Fashion Items purchased on the Platform and may choose to charge a Shipping Fee to the Buyer or to cover the cost of the Shipping Fee for the Buyer.  However, if the Seller has sold a counterfeit or unauthentic Fashion Item to a Buyer, Seller will be responsible for payment of Shipping Fees, as applicable, to have the Buyer return the Fashion Item to Seller.

Seller pays 10% of the Listing Price on Fashion Items with a Listing Price of between $1,000.01 and $3,000.00; and

Seller pays 8% of the Listing Price on Fashion Items with a Listing Price of $3,000.01 or more.

Renter Fees.  For every Fashion Item borrowed, the Renter agrees to pay the Listing Price set by the Lender (which includes for greater certainty the Service Fee), a rental fee of 15% (“Rental Fee”), a deposit on the Fashion Item (“Deposit) which ÀLA.HAUSSE will hold until any Fashion Items rented (Renter) have been returned to the Lender (as specified in the User Guide), as well as any Shipping Fee agreed upon as between the Renter and Lender for the shipping of the Fashion Item (as applicable), any taxes or levies thereon, including applicable charges, international fund transfer fees (as applicable) and any currency exchange rate fees (as applicable) which may be charged to the Renter’s credit card/debit card on file using the Billing Information provided. The Renter must have adequate funds to replace any lost or damaged product(s) up to the amount of the Deposit (plus any associated Service fees) indicated by the Lender. Please contact ÀLA.HAUSSE before reserving your rental if you are unclear of a product’s replacement value. DO NOT RENT A PRODUCT UNTIL YOU HAVE THE FUNDS TO PAY FOR THE DEPOSIT. For more information relating to the fees detailed herein, please visit our User Guide. 

Lender Fee. Lenders who lend Fashion Items to Renter through the Service will pay a lending fee of 15% (“Lender Fee”) for the lent Fashion Items, the Service Fee, as well as any Shipping Fee agreed upon as between the Renter and Lender for the shipping of the Fashion Item (as applicable), including applicable taxes and/or international fund transfer fees and any currency exchange rate fees that may be charged to the credit card/debit card on file of the Lender using the Payment Information provided.

For more information about cancellations and refunds on a User’s behalf, please visit the User Guide.

 

Deposits. Where the Borrower has paid a Deposit for a Fashion Item to the Lender, the Lender will be required to mark the Borrower’s order as processed and the transaction completed. The Lender will then receive its Commission for the transaction, and the Deposit will be released back to the Borrower. In the event that the Lender fails to mark any given transaction as complete, the order will automatically be marked as having been completed after 48 hours of the end of the rental period in question. All Deposits in such case will be held by Stripe on behalf of the Renter until the rental period has ended and/or the transaction has otherwise been marked as complete. All returns on Deposits will be returned to the Renter within 7-10 business days of the date on which the transaction was completed.
