3.2 Creating Your Sales & Marketing
When a Merchant has completed Registration (above) and is logged in to MyStr33t Platform, the Merchant can add surplus food items (hereinafter referred to as “Item(s)”) to be offered for sale. To create an Item, the Merchant has to provide certain Item information such as title, ingredients, quantity or net weight, allergens, regular retail price and discount, expiry dates and more. Each Item must be listed with the correct regular retail price, and must also be discounted a minimum of thirty-three percent (33%) or more.
The Merchant then lists the number of available Items, sets the day and time by which it needs to be collected the (“Collect By” time), and starts a sale through the Merchant Application. After the Item has been posted, the available Items will be shown to the MyStr33t Buyers and will appear in the Merchant list of Items available for sale.
IMPORTANT: It is strictly prohibited to list the regular retail price of an Item on MyStr33t at a higher retail price than the regular retail price charged at the Merchant’s retail location. Any failure to comply with this will result in termination of your Account.
3.3 Order and order confirmation
The logged in MyStr33t Buyer places an order and pays for an Item via the MyStr33t Marketplace. After placing the order, the logged in Merchant will receive an order confirmation via the Merchant Application. This will provide a name of the Buyer and a unique sales reference number. The Merchant will label the Item(s) purchased with the Buyer by name and unique sales reference number and store the Item(s) ready for collection in an appropriate area that meets current UK Food Hygiene Standards as determined by UK legislation and the Food Standards Agency.
3.4 Merchant’s Sales Obligations
After a Buyer has placed an order for an Item made available by the Merchant through the Merchant Application, and an order confirmation has been received by the Merchant, the Merchant is obliged to make the Item that has been purchased available for collection from that time forward until the “Collect By” time.
Items made available through the Merchant Application must be of a standard that meets the description of the listed Item. For example, this means that each Item provided shall be fit for all the purposes for which Items of that kind are usually supplied, be safe for consumption and have satisfactory quality, appearance and finish. The Merchant is solely responsible for maintaining the quality and freshness of the Items sold via the Merchant Application until the Item is collected.
The Merchant will provide food items offered via the MyStr33t Marketplace in compliance with current UK legislation concerning the handling, storing and transportation of food and in accordance with the established principles and practices of the industry.

3.51 Order Cancellation
The Buyer does not have the right to cancel or change an order once purchased. This restriction of the right to cancel an order for an Item is based on the nature of food which has a limited shelf life remaining or is perishable.

Upon arrival to collect the Item, the Buyer will show the Merchant an order confirmation. This will have a name and unique sales reference number and can be presented via the buyer account in the MyStr33t Marketplace application (shown via phone, tablet or other device), by paper receipt, or in an email.
The Merchant will review the order confirmation and check this against the order in the Merchant Application to confirm that the name and unique sales reference number matches that provided by the person collecting the Item. The item may then be released to the person collecting the Item.
Once the item has been collected the Merchant will mark the Item as collected in the Merchant Application to complete the transaction.
If the Buyer does not collect the order before the “Collect By” time, the Merchant has the right to do as they see fit with the Item ordered by the Buyer. In such cases the Buyer is not entitled to a refund for the ordered Item.
