These Terms and the Services Form will be together referred to as the “Agreement.”
Fees & Payments: FREE TO ALL RESTAURANTS: Buying.com does not charge the restaurant any fee for the work that buying.com does for the delivery of any food or products.

The payment schedule is from Friday to Thursday Night at 12 pm Eastern Time. A 3.85% fee is deducted to cover the cost of the credit card processing from the customers. The restaurant has the ability to upload photos and change the menu for any of the items on the restaurant’s menu. User name and passwords are provided upon registering.

We are a FREE delivery service provider for restaurants and businesses.
We provide a service product for every type of restaurant and for every need.
(If you like the sound of that, take a few minutes to read below.)
Here is a brief overview of how we can benefit you.
What Makes Us Different?
What makes the competition different?
Delivery services like Grub Hub, Door Dash, Uber Eats and Seamless charge you!
The restaurant is responsible to pay a commission up to 25-30% of earnings monthly!
We think that’s unfair, so Buying.com doesn’t charge you anything!
We add your menu and product line to our platform and we charge a service delivery fee to the customer.
Now your business has a chance to save big and make more!
How Do We Do It?
STEP 1: If you don’t provide a delivery service for your restaurant or business: now you are now able to provide it without the stress and aggravation of worrying about drivers. If you receive an order at your restaurant or business that needs to be delivered, you would just tell your customer ---- YES WE DELIVER: PLEASE GO TO BUYING.COM AND PLACE YOUR ORDER THERE AND THEY WILL DELIVER IT FOR YOU.
STEP 2: If you have a website now: then you would just put a Delivery Logo on your site and it will forward to your menu on Buying.com. The delivery will be made for you, eliminating all the pressures and worries of the delivery industry.
STEP 3: Use buying.com for delivery during non-peak hours and avoid hiring your own drivers during slow periods.
STEP 4: Payments made weekly to your account for all orders processed. Add extra business and services with no out of pocket expense.

c. DELIVERY SERVICES (IF SELECTED): BUY will connect Restaurant with delivery service providers through Buy BUY’s proprietary logistics platform(s) (the “Delivery Services”).

BUY delivery service providers are independent contractors who access BUY’s proprietary technologies to provide on-demand delivery and logistics services, and such independent contractors control the method and manner in which they deliver orders. Accordingly, BUY will not be liable or responsible for any delivery service providers or any errors or misrepresentations made by them. BUY will have the sole right to determine the particulars of the Delivery Services, including, without limitation, the delivery fee, delivery area and availability.

Restaurant owns all rights, title, and interest in and to the Restaurant Content, subject to the license granted to BUY herein. BUY may remove Restaurant Content on the Systems at any time if it believes, in its sole discretion, that such Restaurant Content violates any applicable laws, infringes upon any third-party rights, or otherwise impacts the integrity of the Systems.

BUY’S MAXIMUM LIABILITY UNDER THE AGREEMENT WILL BE THE AMOUNT OF COMMISSIONS EARNED BY BUY DURING THE SIX (6) MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO THE EVENT WHICH GAVE RISE TO SUCH DAMAGES.

5. Dispute Resolution Restaurant and BUY agree that all claims or disputes arising out of the Agreement will be decided by an arbitrator through Buy arbitration and not by a judge or jury (“Arbitration Agreement”). This Arbitration Agreement is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) and evidences a transaction involving commerce. The arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), which are available at www.adr.org. The arbitrator’s fees and the costs will be shared equally by the parties, unless prohibited by law. Parties are responsible for their own attorneys’ fees. The arbitration proceeding will take place in NJ, unless otherwise agreed. A court of competent jurisdiction will have the authority to enter judgment on the arbitrator’s decision and award. The parties agree to bring any claim or dispute in arbitration on an individual basis only, and not as a class or collective action, and there will be no rights or authority for any claim or dispute to be brought Buy, heard or arbitrated as a class or collective action (“Class Action Waiver”). Regardless of anything herein and/or the applicable AAA Rules, the interpretation, applicability or enforceability of the Class Action Waiver may only be determined by a court and not an arbitrator. The following claims are excluded from this Arbitration Agreement: (a) claims in small claims court; (b) claims to enforce or to prevent the actual or threatened violation of a party’s intellectual property rights; (c) claims for temporary relief in connection with an arbitrable controversy; and (d) claims that are non-arbitrable per the applicable federal statute.
