Description of Kreative Lane Services
Kreative Lane is an online platform in the form of a marketplace that enables registered users who offer products and/or services to publish such products and/or services on the Kreative Lane Platform, to communicate and transact directly with registered users that are seeking to buy or consume such products and/or services. It is important to note, however, that Kreative Lane is not part of the transaction as the transaction is between the vendor and the customer. By shopping on the Kreative Lane Platform, You understand that:
- You are not buying directly from Kreative Lane, but from one of the many vendors on Kreative Lane;
- Kreative Lane does not pre-screen vendors and therefore does not guarantee or endorse any items sold on Kreative Lane or any content posted by vendors (such as photographs or language used in listings or shop policies);
- Each vendor on Kreative Lane accepts all payment methods that are accepted by Our payment processor, PayPal. Each vendor has its own processing times, collection/shipping/delivery methods and shop policies

- the customer can then choose to approve the price and continue to checkout as per usual; and
