Arms Cove Selling Terms & Conditions

  1. Arms Cove is an advertising system, nothing more. And like with any advertising system, you are completely responsible for the legality of what you are selling, who you are selling it to, and your legal ability to sell it. This applies to all items listed for sale. Crimes with far reaching harmful impact have occurred on the internet involving everything from children’s toys to car parts. Verify the identity of every buyer and any transfer dealers involved. Protect your item with shipping insurance, and take pictures of it before it is shipped out. Save all communications (email can never be entirely deleted from our system) and retain your records. If you are unsure of your ability to handle this, please consider using a trusted resource.
  2. There is no posting fee for a standard ad, or even an auction. If you want to highlight or feature your ad, or use a gallery of images, some posting fees do apply. Classified Ads and Auction type listings can run up to 180 days.
  3. All items posted into a standard classified ad or auction must be “in hand.” This means that you must possess the item for sale or if it has been consigned for you to sell, you must be able to get it on short notice. All pictures of used items must be of the actual item. New, current manufacture items may carry a manufacturer photo, but must also be “in hand.”
  4. There is an after sale fee for all things sold from an ad on Arms Cove. This is somewhat tracked in our system, but The Honor System, operational on Arms Cove 2017, still applies. If a customer walks into your store and say “Hey I want to buy this item I saw on Arms Cove,” you are liable for an after sale fee on The Honor System. This applies to regular sales as well.
  5. The standard after sale fee for all items is 3%.
  6. Arms Cove works with the manufacturers to attain the standard picture, description and specifications for each SKU in the entire manufacturer catalog. They also provide a Minimum Advertised Price (MAP).
  7. A basic seller account on Arms Cove is free except the standard after sale fee.
  8. All fees at Arms Cove are very clear. If you feel you have been charged unfairly please contact and you will be answered promptly. Generally we will refund any incorrect fees regardless of time lapse. If you neglect to contact us and do a charge back through your credit card company, generally we do fight these and we always win, so please contact us if you have a problem. We generally give people the benefit of the doubt and you will be more likely to get a refund without the charge back than with.
  9. Arms Cove makes no warranty on anyone or anything, period. This is the internet and there are literally hundreds of thousands of people sitting in desks in other countries and even some in this country trying to come up with ways to rip you off every day. IF SOMETHING IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT IS NOT TRUE. IF SOMEONE OFFERS YOU MONEY TO DO SOMETHING ILLEGAL THEY ARE ALWAYS 100% OF THE TIME TRYING TO RIP YOU OFF OR STEAL YOUR IDENTITY. Be careful, always.
  10. You must log into your Arms Cove account to answer buyer inquiries. If you do not answer a buyer within 7 days your account may be suspended without notice.
  11. This is the entirety of our agreement with you as a seller. It is subject to change at any time without notice and all changes will be binding upon you as soon as they change. We generally don’t do that though and you are informed about everything. The only thing Arms Cove guarantees is to do our best to have your ad posted in a timely manner, and to keep it up and online. We try to keep our fees clear and consistent and to tell you everywhere you will be charged.
