For Originals Only it is important to create a marketplace that is characterized by integrity and respectful social interaction. Thus, our principles pursue the goal of creating a safe and fair collector portal. It is necessary for sellers to adhere to certain principles and fulfil obligations according to our seller guidelines.
Every OO. Member initially starts with a green OO- Integrity Compass. As soon as one of our guidelines is violated we must take action against the user to uphold our principles (e.g. restriction of sales activities, temporary suspension of the user's account, etc.).
Furthermore, the purchase of an item advertised on Originals Only outside the platform is expressly prohibited and will be sanctioned. To prevent accidental violation of rules, we recommend that you read the Seller Guidelines before selling an item.
1. Truthful information
All customers on Originals Only agree to provide truthful information regarding themselves and the items offered. The item description is the central source of information for the buyer.

✔ Fill out the Originals Only account registration diligently and truthfully.
✔ Updating personal information before making a purchase is recommended
✔ Contact the seller if the item has actually not arrived by the expected delivery date.
✔ Contact the seller if an item significantly differs from the item description.
✖ It is not allowed to provide false information about yourself.

✖ An item other than the original item received is returned to the seller.
✖ The item is damaged by the buyer and then returned.
