CyBay is an online shopping portal based in Cyprus that allows users to offer, sell and buy a variety of pricing formats and locations.
CyBay does not have possession of anything listed or sold through CyBay and is not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers. The contract for the sale is directly between buyer and seller.
While we may provide pricing, postage, listing and other guidance in our Services, such guidance is solely a guide and is down to the discretion of the user.
CyBay does not review users’ listings or content, although we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes.
CyBay has no control over, and does not guarantee the existence, quality, safety or legality of items advertised; the truth or accuracy of users’ content, listings or feedback; the ability of sellers to sell items; the ability of buyers to pay for items; or that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction or return an item.
Sellers must have a valid payment method on file with CyBay at all times.
