If you have not returned a Product within seven (7) days after the return date for the Product, your late return will be considered a non-return and rax will charge your payment method up to 100% of the purchase price of the item plus the maximum late fee set forth in this Section, less any late fees that you have already paid, plus applicable sales tax.
For the Lender: If, as Lender, you ship a Product late, as deemed by rax, the Borrower has the right to cancel the Rental and receive a full refund, in which case the Lender will be charged the late shipping fee as described herein, plus the full commission owed to rax for that Rental and the shipping charge. If the Borrower chooses to proceed with the Rental, they have the option of returning it on the original return date, and receive a credit for the average daily rental rate that the Product was late. Alternatively, if the Borrower would like to extend the Rental by the number of days the Product was delivered late, they will have the option to do so, at no additional charge, with the approval of the Lender. In all cases, the Lender will be responsible for the full commission owed to rax, giving rax the right to charge the Lender’s account for any difference that is over the Lender’s earned income.
When in question, rax will use tracking information provided by the shipping carriers to determine the date an item was shipped, whether from the Lender or the Borrower.
Shipping, Receipt & Return of Products
SHIPPING. When shipping an item to a Borrower, it must be put in the mail on day 1 of the rental period. It is the responsibility of the Lender to ensure the item is shipped on the first day of the Rental. If an item arrives late to the Borrower, whether due to late shipment or shipping carrier delays, the Borrower will have the opportunity to return the item the next day for a full refund. It will be at rax’s sole discretion to decide if the late arrival was the fault of the Lender or the shipping carrier. In cases where rax determines it was the fault of the Lender, and the Borrower decides to return the item for a refund, the Lender will be charged in accordance with the Late Fee as described above and will not receive payment for the transaction. In cases where it was the fault of the shipping carrier, the Borrower may still return the product and receive a full refund, and the Lender will not receive payment. Regardless of when the item is received, it must be returned by the original return date, unless otherwise agreed upon between the Lender and the Borrower via in-App Messenger and rax is notified.
RECEIPT OF THE PRODUCTS. you agree to bear responsibility for receipt of Products shipped to the location specified at time of check out. You acknowledge that in all cases, a Secure Shipping Address is highly recommended. A Secured Shipping Address means a location where an individual can physically receive Product(s). In no event does rax bear responsibility for lost packages, whether with the shipping carrier or once delivered. Once delivered, the package and its contents are the responsibility of the person delivered to, whether that be the Borrower or the Lender. Furthermore, you acknowledge that providing anything other than a Secure Shipping Address may result in delivery delays and additional delivery fees for which rax will not be liable. You will be liable for all such delays and additional delivery fees.
USE OF THE PRODUCTS. You, the Borrower, agree to treat the Products with great care, as if it was owned by you. You are responsible for loss, destruction or damage to the Products due to theft, mysterious disappearance, fire, major stains or any other cause, other than normal wear and tear.
Normal wear and tear may occur and is not covered by the Borrower. We consider normal wear and tear to include stains which can be removed by proper cleaning, minor snags, missing beads, stuck zippers or other minor damage. If you return a Product that is damaged beyond normal wear and tear, then you agree that we shall charge you, and you shall pay, for the price for repairing or replacing the Product, as determined in our discretion. If the Product cannot be repaired or replaced, as determined in our discretion, you will be charged up to 100% of the Retail Value plus applicable sales tax (plus the Rental Fee) using the payment method you used to pay the Rental Fee or any other payment method included in your account information that you have provided to us.
As a Lender you acknowledge that normal wear and tear may occur. Normal wear and tear may occur and is not covered by the Borrower or rax. We consider normal wear and tear to include stains which can be removed by proper cleaning, minor snags, missing beads, stuck zippers or other minor damage. If you receive a returned Product that is damaged beyond normal wear and tear, rax will first attempt to have the product repaired at the Borrower’s expense. Should the item not be repairable or not returned, rax will do their best to mediate between the Lender and Borrower to replace the product OR reimburse the Lender the current resale value of the item, based on its last known condition at the Borrower’s expense. The value of such replacement will be determined solely by rax.
rax assumes no liability for any missing, unreturned, damaged/dirty/unlike the photo, sizing issues, late arriving items or unresponsiveness/any misconduct that may result between borrowers or lenders.
In all cases of damage, or items not meeting the description as listed for the Product, the Lender or Borrower must notify rax within 24 hours of the receipt of the Product. After this time period, rax is under no obligation to mediate any discrepancies between the Lender and the Borrower.
RETURN OF THE PRODUCTS; EXTENSIONS. You agree to return the Products to the Lender in the same packaging you received the Products in (including any garment/dust bags or boxes) on or before the return date for the Products that are identified in the online invoice for your order. If you lose the Return Packaging, you will be responsible for safe return of the item at your own expense by the expected return date, and providing rax with a tracking number. For the avoidance of doubt, the limitations of this clause shall not apply to the Rental Fee, which is charged separately from, and in addition to, any other charges payable by you pursuant to this Section. If the Return Packaging is lost or not in adequate condition, the Borrower is responsible for finding adequate substitute packaging. rax is not responsible for any personal or other items left in the Products or which are returned to the Lender. If you believe you have accidentally or otherwise sent any such items, please contact rax as soon as possible by chatting with rax in the chat function of the app. Our staff may assist in attempting to locate such items at a customer’s request, but are not obligated to and assume no liability for doing so.
RETURNS As a Borrower, if you borrow a Product and it does not fit you or is not as described you may received a refund in the form of a rax credit if you (1) notify the Lender of the return via in-App Messenger within 24 hours of receiving the Product (2) notify rax in the messaging section of the app and (3) return the Product to the Lender within 24 hours (excluding Sundays and holidays) of the date you received the Product in conformance with the return procedure as defined herein. Once Lender confirms receipt of Product, rax will then issue a refund in the form of a rax credit (see Fees & Payments section) for the full Rental Fee less shipping fee, so long as the Product, in the Lender’s discretion, has not been worn. rax credits received from fit issues do not expire and cannot be redeemed for cash.
As a Lender, you will be notified of a fit or quality return via email from rax and agree to accept the return of the rental. You agree to not earn payment for an item which was returned for a fit issue or for the condition of a Product not being in proper condition.
If you participate in a conversation via in-App Messenger with a user who has acted inappropriately including without limitation a user who (a) engages in offensive, violent or sexually inappropriate behavior, (b) you suspect of stealing from you or (c) engages in other disturbing conduct, you should immediately report such person to the appropriate authorities and then to rax by providing us with your police report number; provided, however, that your report will not obligate us to take any action beyond that required by law (if any) or cause us to incur any liability to you or any other person.
