We charge fees for using some services.

13. TRANSACTIONS POLICY
Copious is a community of users wo buy and sell with each other. We are committed to providing a positive experience for both parties in every transaction on our marketplace. The procedures and guidelines contained in the Transactions Policy ("Transactions Policy") explain the buying and selling processes and set out acceptable conduct and prohibited practices. You agree to abide by the procedure and guidelines contained in the Transactions Policy for conducting the sale and purchase of an item. Copious's Transactions Policy is expressly incorporated into this Agreement by this reference. A complete statement of Copious's current Transactions Policy can be found by clicking here. We may change these procedures and guidelines in the future, and such changes will be effective immediately upon posting without notice to you. Because Copious's involvement is limited to that of a platform provider facilitating the actual transactions between a Seller ("Seller") and Buyer ("Buyer"), it is not the agent of either party for any purpose. The following describes and explains our Transactions Policy:
- Seller lists item for sale. Price includes shipping with a tracking number and sales tax if applicable.
- Buyer purchases item, and Copious immediately emails Seller with Buyer's shipping address.
- Seller ships item within 4 business days of purchase notification and enters a tracking number on Copious. (Tracking number is required for payment. If we do not receive a correct tracking number within 4 business days, the transaction will be cancelled.)
- Copious notifies Buyer that item has shipped.
- Buyer receives item. If the Buyer reports no problems with the item, the transaction completes after 2 business days, and we transfer payment to the seller's account less any fees retained by Copious.
Once a purchased item is delivered, you as a Buyer will be afforded a review period as designated by Copious ("Review Period") to inform Copious whether there was an issue with the delivery of an item. Sale proceeds will not be released to the Seller until the Review Period has expired. If the Review Period expires, the transactions will be considered final, and the Buyer agrees to waive all claims or chargebacks. If the Buyer indicates that there is a problem with the item within a Review Period, the issue will be resolved according to Copious's Transactions Policy. While the vast majority of transactions go smoothly, occasionally an issue may arise where an item is not as-described or damaged. When this happens, the buyer has 2 business days from delivery to notify Copious. We follow the policy outlined below to resolve the issue as quickly and fairly as possible.
Item not as-described or damaged
Seller did not ship item / no postal service record it was mailed
Lost in the mail / postal service did record it was mailed, but did not arrive
Copious commission shown at time of purchase.
Copious fees shown at time of listing.
14. MARKETING AND PROMOTION PROGRAMS
Copious reserves the right to cancel any and all marketing promotions at any time without warning. Marketing programs include special offers, incentive or sign in credits and all other programs.
