Terms and Conditions

These terms and conditions shall apply to orders placed by a customer (hereinafter referred to as “the Customer”) with a vendor (hereinafter referred to as “the Vendor”) through a multi-vendor platform owned by Property Map Limited trading as www.buythebook.ie (hereinafter referred to as “the Company”). The terms and conditions are, and are deemed to have been, accepted by the Customer and the Vendor once the order has been placed.


By using www.buythebook.ie (“the Website”) and placing an order, the Customer and the Vendor agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions set out herein (“the Terms and Conditions”). The Company reserves the right to amend these Terms and Conditions from time to time. The version of the Terms and Conditions that will apply to the Customer’s order will be those on the Website at the time at which the Customer has placed the order.

Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully before accessing or using our website. By accessing or using any part of the site, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, then you may not access the website or place any orders.

By using the Website, the Customer hereby acknowledges and confirms that the Company operates a multi-vendor platform via the Website. The Company does not sell products directly to the Customer, nor does the Company have any responsibility or involvement in the supply or delivery of any such goods.

When the Customer purchases a product from the Vendor, the Customer and Vendor enter a contract directly for the sale of goods. The Vendor of the respective product shall be obliged to comply with all Sale of Goods and Supply of Services Act regulations applicable together with any e-commerce or distance selling regulations applicable to the sale of the said goods.

The Company does not receive payments for the orders processed on the website. Accordingly, the Company does not issue refunds directly. The Customer must liaise with the Vendor directly with regard to delivery, cancellation and refund for all orders processed on the website.

All orders processed through the Website are lodged directly with the Vendors registered with the Company. When a Customer places an order, the Customer enters into a contract with the Vendor directly for the provision of the goods. The Company is not a party to this contract.

When the Customer places an order on the website, the Customer and the Vendor will receive an email confirmation of the order and confirmation of payment for the order.

Once the Vendor has completed the order and shipped the order, the Vendor will update the order status and the Customer will receive an email notification that the order is complete.

If for any reason the Vendor is unable to fulfil an order, they must notify the Customer of the cancellation of the order. If the Vendor has cancelled the order, the Vendor will refund the customer through Stripe and in full within 7 days of the cancellation.

The prices displayed on the Website are set by the Vendor and include Value Added Tax and other Government taxes or duties. The prices displayed do not include the delivery charge.

The cost of delivery will be calculated based on the pricing set by the Vendor and the Customer delivery address.

The cost for delivery will be calculated when the Customer enters the delivery address at the checkout. The payment processed will include the delivery cost and the payment will be processed using Stripe.

The Customer will receive an email notification once payment for the order has been processed.

The Company does not take any responsibility with delivery of orders processed through the website. If there is a delay with delivery, the Customer must contact the Vendor directly.

The Vendor is solely responsible for delivery and will ensure that orders placed by the Customer are delivered with good care and diligence and will be delivered within 30 days of the order date.

In certain circumstances, delivery may take longer due to unexpected or unforeseen events. In the unlikely event that the delivery time exceeds 30 days, the Customer may cancel the order by notice to the Vendor, and the full amount of the order including any delivery charges will be refunded by the Vendor to the Customer within 7 days of cancellation.

Each Vendor on the website operates an independent delivery system. Accordingly, if the Customer places multiple orders on the Website from multiple Vendors, the deliveries will be made by each Vendor separately and delivery times will vary.

The company recommends that all Customer complaints are submitted to the Vendor directly via the Vendor contact page. In the event of a dispute, the Customer can contact the Company via email to resolve the dispute.

If the Vendor does not respond to a complaint within 7 days, the Customer can contact the Company for assistance to resolve the complaint.

All complaints in relation to cancelled orders and refunds must be first directed by the Customer to the Vendor directly via the Vendor contact page.

The Vendor will refund the Customer through Stripe using the same method of payment as used for the initial transaction.
