SPAM: Sellers are prohibited from SPAMMING: that is, the practice of listing multiple auctions of the same item, including in multiple categories - for the purpose of increased coverage with the viewing public. Spamming does not generally result in increased sales, but does result in increased bandwidth usage, and frustration for the buying public on having to sort through multiples of the same item from a single seller. Sellers are encouraged to utilize lot Auctions, where the bidder can select a quantity. Spammers will have their excess auctions without bids removed, and money refunded for any special services utilized in those auctions. GUN NATION reserves the right to decide whether or not a seller is spamming, and prolific violators of our spamming policy will be banned. EXCEPTION: Sellers may list multiples of identical guns, as lot auctions for guns are permitted.
If a Seller is expelled for violating our Terms and Conditions set forth herein, or for violating federal, state or local laws, or for fraud of any sort, no refund of any fees paid to GUN NATION will be issued and all uncollected fees become immediately due and payable to GUN NATION. GUN NATION will vigorously defend against any attempt to claim a refund to the point of pressing for criminal or civil liability.
An Auction Seller may not manipulate the price of their own item, either by using a shill (a secondary account or third party), by bidding themselves, or in any other manner.
The Seller must contact the Buyer with payment instructions and address within 3 business days of the close of the auction.
The Seller must notify the Buyer immediately upon receipt of payment for the auction.
The Seller must ship the item via traceable means upon receipt of payment (and also Buyer's FFL if the sale is for a firearm) within 5 business days if payment is by cash, certified funds, money order, credit card, or any online payment service. However, if a Seller agrees to accept a personal check from the Buyer, this period may be increased by the number of days the Seller's bank withholds releasing funds after deposit of a personal check and such check clears. Sellers WILL NOT ship products until payment (and, if required, an FFL) is received.
Federal Firearms Licenses (FFL s) can be validated immediately on-line. Curio and Relic Federal Firearms Licenses (C&RFFLs) cannot be validated on-line. Acceptance of C&RFFLs for firearms eligible to be transferred under such licenses is at the sole discretion of the Seller.
All guns or gun shipments must be fully insured for the selling price with the Seller named as the insured party. A Seller continues to legally own a gun until the mandatory 3 Day Inspection Period has expired without proper notice of a return, (unless an insurance claim has been filed), or the sale is otherwise finalized by the Buyer's firing or disassembling the gun or guns.
Damage in Shipment. In the event a Seller is properly notified of a claim of damage in shipment of a gun or guns, the Seller is responsible for the secure packaging of the gun or guns as shipper and as insured party is responsible for complying with the insurer's notification and reporting requirement and issuing a refund of the Buyer's purchase price under the same procedures used in the 3 Day Inspection Period regardless of the outcome of any insurance adjustment. The Seller has the obligation to relay any instructions from the insurer to the Buyer on how to cooperate with Insurance investigation. The return of the item and the Buyer’s time obligations on return thereunder however does not begin until such time as the Insurance investigation is completed. If the Insurance Investigators take possession of the item for return to the seller, the Buyer's obligations for return are considered complete and the Seller shall immediately refund the Buyer's Purchase Price. Otherwise, once the insurance investigation is completed the Buyer must return the item within the time frame specified under the 3 business day Firearms Inspection policy.
The Seller must inform Buyer once the product has been shipped. The Seller will provide a tracking number on all firearms shipments and on other items (if available) and an estimated arrival date.
If a Seller is caught "borrowing" another Seller's pictures, that is considering theft and is grounds for expulsion from GUN NATION. Storefront Merchants are not considered to be "borrowing" pictures if their pictures are sourced from a manufacturer's, wholesaler's, jobber's, drop shipper's or other suppliers catalog or source made available to the Storefront Merchant as a customer.
In order to receive a Relist Credit, a Seller must request that Relist Credit within three months of the close of that auction. Relist Credits requested after that three month period will be denied.
In order to be fair to our Sellers that pay a fee to advertise on our web site and to protect the privacy of our bidders, the use of our web site as a source of email addresses to directly solicit items in competition with a currently running auction will be discouraged. Individuals demonstrating this type of business ethic will be subject to expulsion from the site, at the sole discretion of GUN NATION.
