Terms of Use for Buyers

Regarding the separation of Plazko.com from the Plazko.com Marketplace (and other future Plazko sites and venues):

A. Plazko.com offers a selection of fine products and/or services

These items will be available for purchase directly through our online portal at Plazko.com, and payment directly to Plazko.com via accepted credit cards and online payment services. Plazko.com has its own Payment Policies and Returns and Refunds.

Pricing errors, out-of-stock, materials availability and quality, and other issues can occasionally cause an order to be delayed or canceled. Plazko.com will work with the Marketplace Sellers to help ensure that such incidents are handled promptly and fairly.

B. Plazko.com Marketplace

These Sellers operate separate venues called 'Shops' through our online portal, allowing Buyers to discover, research, and enter into transactions around the world. 'Specialty Shops' can include but are not limited to one-of-kind or limited edition artisan-made products; expertly curated collectible and vintage boutique items, and custom items. By shopping on Plazko.com Marketplace, you understand and agree that:

  • You are not buying directly from Plazko.com, but from our Sellers.
  • While we reserve the right to assess the initial Seller application for product quality, accuracy, authenticity, or fitness-for-use, we can make no continual or long-term warranty of such.
  • While Plazko.com Marketplace processes sales through the same online payment services as Plazko.com, Sellers have their own Shop policies, processing times, and preferred shipping methods. If you have a question about a product or service, we encourage you to contact the Seller directly through their Plazko.com Marketplace Shop.
  • By making a purchase from either Plazko.com or a Plazko.com Marketplace Shop, you agree that you: have read the item description and Shop policies before making a purchase; have submitted appropriate payment for item(s) purchased; and have provided accurate shipping information to Plazko.com and/or (for Marketplace Shops) the Seller.

C. Marketplace Policies

  • All Sellers will follow the minimum Plazko.com Returns/Refund Policies.
  • Sellers may opt for Enhanced Returns and Refunds based upon the types of Shops they create.
  • Some Sellers may be part of special programs that have different Shop Policies.
  • We urge Buyers to check for in-depth Shop Policies at individual Shops.
  • We encourage Sellers to set fair and reasonable prices for their items, fulfill order processing promptly, and engage in the feedback process to improve the experience for everyone.
  • However, Plazko.com does not set Marketplace shop prices.
  • As members of the Plazko.com community, Buyers have the opportunity to flag an item or a shop that violates any of Plazko.com’s policies. Flagging is confidential, and helps us maintain a high-quality browsing and buying experience for everyone.
  • Title and Risk of Loss: In the case of specific physical items, title to the items you purchase on both Plazko.com and the Plazko.com Marketplace passes to you upon delivery of such goods to the carrier, as does the related risk of loss!
  • The Plazko.com Case System can be used in cases of disputes.

D. Returns and Refunds

While Plazko.com will make every effort to provide return and refund services for sales on both Plazko.com and the Plazko.com Marketplace, we reserve the right to deny such to buyers who generate excessive or abusive returns or attempted returns. Those actions may void Plazko.com's collective Returns and Refunds, any guarantees as applied to future orders on Plazko.com site(s), or even account membership on Plazko.com, Plazko.com Marketplace, and other affiliated site(s).

  • Plazko.com returns and refunds are handled only as described in our Returns and Refunds.
  • Each Seller will follow the minimum Plazko.com Marketplace Returns/Refunds Guidelines, and may opt for 'Enhanced' Returns/Refunds Guidelines.
  • If you reside in the European Union, you may be entitled to a 14-day 'cooling off period', or a 'right of withdrawal', during which you may return an item for any reason.
  • Buyers may be required to include a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA) to used on the outside of the return shipping box or package, and inside with the Buyer's name, contact information, agreed resolution, etc. Please visit your order history and follow return procedures.

Returns and Refunds, Guidelines, and Exceptions:


Occurs when a Buyer places an order and submits payment, but the order is not delivered. This includes but is not limited to the following:

  • An item was never sent.
  • An item was sent to an address that is not on the Plazko.com or Plazko.com Marketplace order, or was not verified through Buyer/Seller conversations or through address verification.
  • There is no proof that the item was shipped to the Buyer’s address.
  • Lost-in-transit.


Items are Not as Described if they are materially and substantially different from the Seller’s listing description or photos. Some Not-as-Described cases can be:

  • Differences in material, size, color, model, or design.
  • Sold as authentic to a certain material, process, or design but upon receipt are determined to be inauthentic.
  • The item is determined to be flawed, damaged, or have missing parts.
  • Items purchased in multiples are sent with the wrong number of items. Note: orders may be split into multiple shipments.
  • The condition of the item differs substantially from its image or description.

Not-as-Described cases may also be filed for late delivery under certain guidelines. In order to qualify as a Late Delivery, the Buyer must provide proof that all of these conditions have been met:

  • Item(s) were ordered for a specific date or event.
  • Both Buyer and Seller agreed upon a specific timeline for completion, shipping, and arrival of the product.
  • Because of that delay, the item(s) are rendered useless and/or superfluous after that date.
  • To be considered for this type of case, the Buyer must pick a guaranteed delivery service! ('Priority' and 'Economy' shipping services cannot make accurate guarantees of delivery, and are thus disqualified as Late-Delivery cases.)

Ineligible Transactions

The following transactions are rendered ineligible for return/refund under the Plazko.com Terms of Use:

  • Items purchased in person, and not through Plazko.com, Plazko.com Marketplace, or any of our other site(s), regardless of whether that item or a similar one was previously or concurrently offered through our sales platforms.
  • Intangible items or services, whereby neither the Seller, Buyer, nor Plazko.com can reasonably ascertain whether the product has allowed or caused a particular intangible function or action.
  • Items are prohibited by certain local, national, or international conventions.
  • Transactions where payment is not made through Plazko.com's approved payment platforms.
  • Items that are returned without a return agreement arranged beforehand. Sellers may require a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA) to used on the outside of the return shipping box or package, and inside with the Buyer's name, contact information, agreed resolution, etc. Failing to include that RMA and required information may delay or invalidate the return process, so please visit your order history and follow return procedures.
  • Items that have been altered, used, worn, washed, or otherwise altered after Buyer received them.
  • Items returned without Seller's packaging materials as pertaining to secondary boxes, shaped-foam insets, bags, product packaging, etc. These are included in this notice as they can be necessary to physically protect the item in shipping, and/or may be necessary in Seller's restocking of item. Most Sellers will re-sell returned items, so please be respectful of the Seller and the product!
  • Physical or tangible items unavailable for return because they have been destroyed or discarded by the Buyer.
  • Items that are received after the agreed-upon delivery date due to unavoidable shipping delays.
  • Cancelled transactions that have already resulted in a refund.
  • See list of non-returnable Products.

E. Leaving Reviews of Items

For clarity, review opportunities will be offered in three main categories: Seller, Product, and Shipping Carrier.

  • 'Seller reviews' cover the Seller's conduct toward the Buyer.
  • 'Product reviews' cover the product itself and/or its presentation on Plazko.com or Plazko.com Marketplace.
  • 'Shipping Carrier reviews' cover the shipper chosen to deliver the item.

Reviews help other Buyers learn about a Shop’s items and reputation, help Buyers find the shipping carrier best for their needs, and help responsible Sellers build a good reputation.

  • You may leave a review any time after receiving your product or service.
  • We ask that your reviews reflect your honest, unbiased opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences.
  • If you think your one review won't matter, think again! Word of mouth advertising is one of the most effective and trusted ways to bring great products and services to the public.
  • Plazko.com reserves the right to use any and all reviews for purposes of marketing and promotion, with no compensation.

Note: Plazko.com does not allow paid third-party reviews or in-kind reimbursement for product or service reviews. That means Sellers can't pay to get glowing reviews of their product or service from workers at online platforms such as Fiverr or Craigslist. If this sounds harsh, be aware that paid and often false reviews are a multimillion-dollar problem in online sales. False reviews distort sales figures, rankings, and customer confidence, resulting in an uneven playing field for genuine Sellers.

If someone gave you a free product or service listed on Plazko.com or Plazko.com Marketplace, in return for a good review, you may not leave that review on the Plazko.com site(s). Should the latter situation occur and you genuinely want to review a free product or service, we encourage you to review that item on a third-party site such as your personal blog, website, Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, or other online account...and we'd be honored if you included that item's Plazko.com buy link or Seller's Shop link on Plazko.com Marketplace.

The sole exception to this policy concerns products offered as prizes, bonuses, giveaways, or other promotions by Plazko.com or Plazko.com Marketplace, in which cases reviews are welcomed on the Plazko.com site(s).

By leaving a review, you acknowledge that:

Your review will be publicly displayed on Plazko.com's or the Plazko.com Marketplace Seller's listing and review pages.

Your review must conform to some basic guidelines. These include:

  • Reviews must be about a real product or service offered by or sold through Plazko.com or Plazko.com Marketplace;
  • Reviews must not contain Buyer's or Seller's private information;
  • Reviews must not contain obscene, racist, threatening, or harassing language or imagery;
  • Reviews must not contain advertising or spam;
  • Reviews must not concern things outside the Seller’s control, such as actions by a shipping carrier, bank, or other third party.
  • Reviews must not undermine the integrity of Plazko.com's review system.

Plazko.com does not allow extortion, blackmail, or any other kind of intimidation designed to manipulate Buyer reviews or Seller actions. Examples of extortion can include but are not limited to the following:

  • Buyer leaves a negative review in an attempt to force the Seller into providing additional products or services not agreed upon in the original transaction.
  • Buyer leaves a negative review in an attempt to force the Seller into providing a refund when a refund is not warranted.
  • Buyer leaves a negative review in an attempt to punish or harass the Seller, for reasons not related to transactions on Plazko.com.

Shilling and sock-puppets are not allowed on Plazko.com.

  • 'Sock-puppets' are secondary alternate accounts created as hidden personas, and are often used to troll, insult, and/or harass rival Sellers or Buyers.
  • 'Shilling' is a dishonest marketing practice whereby someone attempts to inflate a Seller's reputation by dishonest means through good reviews and/or fraudulent purchases. Both practices violate Plazko.com's Terms of Use. Shilling is also considered to be a deceptive business practice by the US Federal Trade Commission, and in certain cases may fall under civil or criminal prosecution.
  • You may not access and or use our site(s) through concealed IP addresses, and/or by using third party credentials, fraudulent credentials, or other methods to conceal your true identity, except as noted above in our Registration section 1A.

As noted above, Plazko.com does not allow shilling by sock puppet accounts, false sales created by fraudulent means, third-party reviews paid for by the Seller, or other attempts to manipulate our review system.

  • Should we determine that one or more of these practices are being engaged in by a Seller or Buyer, we reserve the right to terminate that account, and any other accounts maintained by that Seller or Buyer.
  • Our Sellers may choose to respond to negative or neutral reviews, provided they do so in a civil and reasonable manner, and for good reasons including but not limited to correction of information, or clarification of materials or techniques. We remind Sellers that reviews are ultimately subjective, and meant more for customer benefit. Participation in online flamewars can damage a Buyer's reputation as well as a Seller's.

Plazko.com reserves the right to remove reviews that violate our policies or Terms of Use.

3. Accuracy, timeliness, and completeness of Information on Plazko.com, the Plazko.com Marketplace, or our other sites

Our online sites contain third-party information from Sellers, suppliers, and other providers. While Plazko.com makes every effort to be accurate, we cannot guarantee any aspect of a Seller's or supplier's product information including without limitation: product descriptions, images, materials, and specifications. The data provided by those Sellers and suppliers is for information purposes only, and may be inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, mis-categorized, or unhelpful; it may differ from information included on actual product packaging, inserts, or materials.

A. If you purchase a product that is not as described, your sole remedy against Plazko.com, the Plazko.com Marketplace, or Sellers is to return it and/or request a refund in accordance with Plazko.com'sReturns/Refunds Policies.

  • Certain Sellers may have Enhanced Store policies with different Returns and Refunds.
