The buyers ("Buyer/s") can choose and place orders ("Orders") from a variety of products and services listed and offered for sale by various merchants including but not limited to the restaurants, eateries and grocery stores ("Merchant/s"), on the Platform. Further, the Buyer can also place Orders for undertaking certain tasks on the Platform (“Tasks”). 

 

  1.

For both Platform Services and Delivery Services, GShop is merely acting as an intermediary between the Merchants and Buyers and/or Pilots and Buyers/Merchants.

 

Pilots are individual entrepreneurs engaged with GShop on a voluntary, non-exclusive and principal to principal basis to provide aforementioned services for service fee. Pilots are independent contractors and are free to determine their timings of work.  GShop does not exercise control on the Pilots and the relationship between the Pilots and GShop is not that of an agent and principal or employee and employer. 

 

  1. For the pickup and delivery services and completing the Tasks, Pilots may charge the users of the Platform (Buyers or Merchants), a service fee (inclusive of applicable taxes whenever not expressly mentioned) determined on the basis of various factors including but not limited to distance covered, time taken, demand for delivery services/Tasks, real time analysis of traffic and weather conditions, seasonal peaks or such other parameters as may be determined from time to time.

  1. Use of Platform and Services

 

  1. All commercial/contractual terms are offered by and agreed to between Buyers and Merchants alone with respect to products and services being offered by the Merchants. The commercial/contractual terms include without limitation price, applicable taxes, shipping costs, payment terms, date, period and mode of delivery, warranties related to products and services and after sales services related to products and services. GShop does not have any control or does not determine or advise or in any way involve itself in the offering or acceptance of such commercial/contractual terms between the Buyers and Merchants. GShop may, however, offer support services to Merchants in respect to Order fulfilment, mode of payment, payment collection, call centre support and other ancillary services, pursuant to independent contracts executed by GShop with the Merchants. The price of the product and services offered by the Merchant are determined by the Merchant itself and GShop has no role to play in such determination of price in any way whatsoever.

 

  1. Upon acceptance of any Order or Task by the Pilots, the pickup and delivery services or Task completion services (as the case may be) undertaken by him/her, shall constitute a separate contract for services between Merchants/Buyers and Pilots. GShop shall not be responsible for the services provided by Pilot to Merchants/Buyers through the Platform. GShop may, however, offer support services to Pilots in respect of Order fulfilment, payment collection, call centre support, and other ancillary services, pursuant to independent contracts executed by GShop with the Pilots.

 

  1. GShop does not make any representation or warranty as to the item-specifics (such as legal title, creditworthiness, identity, etc.) of any of the Merchants. You are advised to independently verify the bona fides of any particular Merchant that you choose to deal with on the Platform and use your best judgment on that behalf. All Merchant offers and third-party offers are subject to respective party terms and conditions. GShop takes no responsibility for such offers.

 

  1. GShop neither make any representation or warranty as to specifics (such as quality, value, salability, etc.) of the products or services proposed to be sold or offered to be sold or purchased on the Platform nor does implicitly or explicitly support or endorse the sale or purchase of any products or services on the Platform. GShop accepts no liability for any errors or omissions, whether on behalf of itself or third parties.

 

  1. GShop does not make any representation or warranty with respect to any aspect of the services being provided by the Pilots through the Platform including but not limited to pick up and delivery services and Task completion services to the Merchants or Buyers as the case may be.

 

  1. GShop is not responsible for any non-performance or breach of any contract entered into between Buyers and Merchants, and between Merchants/Buyers and Pilot on the Platform. GShop cannot and does not guarantee that the concerned Buyers, Merchants and Pilots will perform any transaction concluded on the Platform. GShop is not responsible for unsatisfactory or non-performance of services or damages or delays as a result of products which are out of stock, unavailable or back ordered.

 

  1. GShop is operating an online marketplace and assumes the role of facilitator, and does not at any point of time during any transaction between Buyer and Merchant and/or Buyer and Pilot on the Platform come into or take possession of any of the products or services offered by Merchant or Pilot. At no time shall GShop hold any right, title or interest over the products nor shall GShop have any obligations or liabilities in respect of such contract entered into between Buyer and Merchant and/or Buyer and Pilot.

 

  1. GShop is only providing a platform for communication and it is agreed that the contract for sale of any of the products or services shall be a strictly bipartite contract between the Merchant and the Buyer. In case of complaints from the Buyer pertaining to efficacy, quality, or any other such issues, GShop shall notify the same to Merchant and shall also redirect the Buyer to the consumer call center of the Merchant. The Merchant shall be liable for redressing Buyer complaints. In the event you raise any complaint on any Merchant accessed using our Platform, we shall assist you to the best of our abilities by providing relevant information to you, such as details of the Merchant and the specific Order to which the complaint relates, to enable satisfactory resolution of the complaint.

 

  1. Similar to the above, GShop is only providing a platform for communication with Pilot and does not provide any pick-up and delivery services or Task completion services with respect to the Orders placed by Merchants/Buyers on the Platform as it is merely facilitating Delivery Services by connecting the Merchants/Buyers with the Pilot through the Platform. In case of complaints by the Merchants/Buyers for deficiency or lapse in the delivery services or Task completion services provided by Pilot, GShop shall notify the same to the Pilot and also assist Merchants/Buyers to the best of its abilities to enable satisfactory resolution of the complaint.
