Buy with confidence

This Code of Ethics is subscribed to by all members.

CODE OF ETHICS
  • Contracts for pottery sales are binding, whether written, electronic, or verbal. When a buyer and seller agree to a transaction and a price, that agreement will be considered binding and cannot be changed except through mutual agreement.
  • Sellers must clearly price all pottery for sale.
  • Sellers must provide buyers with their name and/or business name, address, telephone number, and email address if appropriate. This information must be provided on a receipt, which must be given for all sales. The receipt should accurately describe the item(s) being sold and the condition of the item(s).
  • Sellers must state their return policy clearly before a sale is finalized. They must give any buyer who purchases pottery in person the privilege of return of any piece if the pottery is not as described. When a piece of pottery is bought, sight unseen, the buyer must be allowed to return the piece for any reason, provided it is in the same condition as it was when sent to the buyer.
