6.8 Obligations of Sellers: On the transaction detail screens, each seller to a transaction must designate an account to which payment for the transaction will be made. Each Seller authorizes to initiate credit entries to such seller’s account for payment of the purchase price, or applicable balance due, and to debit Seller’s Account to discharge Seller’s obligations. Each Seller in a Transaction shall deliver the items set forth in transaction detail screens directly to the Buyer (or Buyers), at the address specified by such Buyer as shown on Mercon Optics and on the terms and conditions set forth in the transaction instructions. Mercon Optics shall designate a delivery service that provides a confirmation of delivery and shall provide a tracking or reference number for the shipment of the goods. Seller gives Mercon Optics permission to act as its agent in communicating with the shipping company regarding the notice of the delivery of the goods. In the event Mercon Optics does not receive notice of shipment from Seller within ten (10) calendar days of notification from Mercon Optics’s notice to Seller to ship the items, Seller authorizes Mercon Optics to return the escrowed funds (excluding Mercon Optics fees) to Buyer. In the event of a return of the items by Buyer, Seller shall notify Mercon Optics of the receipt of the returned items. Upon receipt of such notice from Seller, the Seller’s five (5) day inspection period shall commence. In the event Seller accepts the returned items within the inspection period or fails to act within the inspection period, Mercon Optics shall remit the escrowed funds (excluding Escrow.com fees) to Buyer. If Seller notifies Mercon Optics of its non-acceptance of any returned items within the Seller’s inspection period, then Mercon Optics will retain the escrow funds pending resolution of the dispute or take other action as authorized. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary above, if all users to a transaction agree on the transaction detail screens that there is no shipping required, then no party hereto will have any obligation under this Agreement with respect to shipping.
6.8 Obligations of Buyers:On the transaction detail screens, Buyer must designate a payment mechanism and an Account from which the purchase price and related fees (unless such fees are to be paid by Seller) will be obtained for the deposit into escrow. Depending on the amount of the transaction and the currency selected for the Transaction, Buyer may remit the necessary funds via various methods, which may include corporate credit card, charge card, debit card or purchasing card, or bank transfer. In the case of bank transfers, Buyer will initiate the wire to an account designated by Mercon Optics on or before the date set forth in the transaction detail screens. Regardless of the payment method, Buyer authorizes Mercon Optics and Mercon Optics authorized agents to initiate credit or debit transactions, as applicable, to obtain the purchase price and fees due for a Transaction and to initiate any debit or credit entries or reversals, as the case may be, as may be necessary to correct any error in a payment or transfer and to discharge Buyer’s obligations under Section 22 of this Agreement. Mercon Optics will deposit funds received from Buyer into an escrow trust account maintained by Mercon Optics (the “Escrow Account”). Unless otherwise requested as specified in the following sentence, escrowed deposits do not earn interest for Buyer or Seller. If you anticipate an extended closing of the Transaction, then you may request and approve an instruction to have Mercon Optics place Buyer’s funds into an interest bearing account for the benefit of Buyer or Seller. If interest is to accrue to the benefit of the Seller, then both Buyer and Seller must request and approve the establishment of the interest bearing account. If this request is made, then Mercon Optics will charge the account of the party to whom the interest accrues an additional nonrefundable service charge of $100.00, which must be paid in advance.
Buyer shall notify Mercon Optics of the receipt or non-receipt of the items on the date the merchandise is received or the Buyer Inspection Period is started. Buyer shall notify Mercon Optics of the Buyer’s acceptance or rejection of the items before the Buyer’s Inspection Period expires. Upon receipt of notice from Buyer that the items have been received and accepted, Mercon Optics shall transfer the payment amount (less any amount payable to Mercon Optics for Mercon Optics fees) to Seller’s Account. Transfer to a Seller generally will be initiated within the next business day from the day on which notice of acceptance of the items is received from the Buyer. If Buyer has not notified Mercon Optics of the non-receipt or rejection of the items during the Buyer’s Inspection Period, then Buyer authorizes Mercon Optics to remit the escrowed funds (excluding Mercon Optics fees) to the Seller. Buyer shall follow the procedures set forth on the Site in the event the items are rejected.
6.8 Obligations of Mercon Optics: Mercon Optics and its agents are obligated to perform only those duties expressly described in this agreement. Mercon Optics shall not be liable for any error in judgment, for any act taken or not taken, or for any mistake of fact or law, except for gross negligence or willful misconduct. Mercon Optics may rely upon any notice, demand, request, letter, certificate, agreement or any other document which purports to have been transmitted or signed by or on behalf of a User indicated as the sender or signatory thereof and shall have no duty to make any inquiry or investigation. In the event that Mercon Optics is uncertain as to Mercon Optics duties or rights under this agreement, receives any instruction, demand or notice from any user or financial institution which, in Mercon Optics’s opinion, is in conflict with any of the provisions of this agreement, or any dispute arises with respect to this agreement or the escrowed funds, Mercon Optics may (i) consult with counsel of our choice (including our own attorneys) and any actions taken or not taken based upon advice of counsel shall be deemed consented to by you, or (ii) refrain from taking any action other than to retain the funds in escrow for delivery in accordance with the written agreement of the users, the final decision or award of an arbitrator pursuant to an arbitration commenced and conducted in accordance with the general escrow instructions or a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction, or (iii) discharge our duties under this Agreement by depositing all funds by interpleader action with a court of competent jurisdiction in accordance with the procedures outlined in the general escrow instructions.
