WHURL provides a meeting and marketplace where our members can buy and sell vintage fashions and other goods (collectively “Vintage Goods”), as well as communicate with one another. Vintage Goods include the following items which were made at least twenty (20) years ago: clothing, accessories, household and other small items. WHURL members who are interested in buying certain Vintage Goods may upload photos and/or written descriptions of their desired items. In response to the posted purchase desires of a WHURL member, other WHURL members who possess Vintage Goods which are within the potential scope of those goods which are desired by a WHURL member may upload photos and/or written descriptions of such goods. WHURL members may browse other members’ photos and descriptions of desired Vintage Goods as well as members’ photos and descriptions of the Vintage Goods for sale offered in response to prospective buyers’ queries.
All purchase and/or sale transactions which come about as a result of postings on WHURL’S Services will be conducted through PayPal.

WHURL shall not be entitled to any commission based upon any separate charge agreed upon between the buyer and seller with respect to shipping fees. However, should any seller quote a single price for the sale of its goods which includes shipping fees, WHURL’s commission shall be determined based upon that single price with no deduction or adjustment for shipping fees.
