THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE & PURCHASE AGREEMENT
A customer must register an account through our Website to gain access to the Sharesies Subscription Service.
The Subscription Service works by having a Subscriber select a Plan based on the packages presented, which will auto-renew and be charged continually unless cancelled by the Subscriber. All Subscriptions auto-renew as per the length of the associated purchase plan.
For the duration of the Subscription period, Subscribers have access to swap items (according to the Plan selected) and have access to credits associated with their account for the Subscription period. The length of term begins when the Plan is paid for by the customer, and includes time where the items are in transit (being delivered).
Your Subscription allows you trade items, that are accepted into the Sharesies inventory, for credits based on their retail value ex. if an item is assessed to have a retail value of $45 CDN dollars, then your account will receive 45 credits after it has been donated to Sharesies and determined to be in good working condition. Credits do not have cash value and may not be transferred to other accounts. Credits remain valid with a active subscription and will expire if/when a subscription is cancelled.
We will always make a reasonable amount of items available to you as part of the Subscription service. We cannot guarantee that a particular item will be available, or that all items are in stock at a particular time. The Website will indicate the availability of items at the time of your order.
Subscribers may Swap (i.e. trade or exchange) items during the Subscription period. The Subscriber may choose items to return or donate in exchange for store credit. Then use those credits to make new selections.
For example: Subscriber has ordered 4 items and chooses to Swap 1 and keep 3. The item returned will be assessed to ensure it is in good working condition and the subscribers account will be loaded with credits for it’s retail value. The Subscriber may choose to donate/share/trade toys from their possession in exchange for credit by leaving them on the doorstep on their order delivery day. Sharesies will pick up the donated toys and load the Subscribers account with credits in accordance with their respective retail value for each item that meets the posted Sharesies toy trade in guidelines.
Assessment and acceptance of donations is at the sole discretion of Sharesies and is not guaranteed. Should an item not be accepted, Sharesies will either donate the item to local charity or a day care facility or have it recycled appropriately. Sharesies will not return items that were not accepted.
Subscribers are responsible for placing the items intended to be swapped in a Sharesies box or bag (or another object that sufficiently protects the items from outdoor elements). Items must be outside the Subscriber’s door as of 9:00am on their scheduled Swap day. If the items scheduled for return are not available at the time of delivery, the Swap will not occur and the Swap order will be cancelled. Items being returned are in the possession of the Subscriber until they are successfully picked up by Sharesies.

Free Trials & Promotions
Free trials and/or promotions may be available to first time customers only. Limited to one per household. The free period of the trial and/or promotion beings on the date the order is made, ends in accordance with the length of term of said trial/promotion and a Sharesies Membership (renewing every 1-year) will be charged without notice. Delivery fees are not included in free trials/promos. Additional unique terms and conditions may apply, see trial and/or promo advertisement for details.
Upgrading Your Plan
Subscribers may be able to upgrade their plan (ex. by changing their Membership to a Premium Membership) by updating their Subscription plan at any time. Full payment for additional access to items is due immediately (and not prorated). Access to any additional credits is granted immediately upon successful payment. The Subscriber’s Plan will auto-renew at the rate of the updated Plan on their scheduled billing date.
Decreasing Your Plan
Subscribers can decrease their Plan (ex. Updating their ‘Premium Plan’ to a ‘Plus Plan’) at any time. The Subscriber’s change to credits and delivery packages takes effect for the next billing cycle. Their current access will remain until their Plan changes at the next scheduled billing date. For example: The Subscriber has a ‘Premium’ Plan scheduled to auto-renew in 10 days and wants to update to a ‘Plus’ Plan. The Subscriber will retain access to credits and delivery packages items for 10 days. The next billing date will be updated to renew at the ‘Plus’ Plan and new credits and delivery packages will be fulfilled in accordance to the new plan will take effect. Refunds of any kind are not provided when downgrading a Plan.
Subscribers may cancel their subscription at any time. After a cancellation has been confirmed, the Subscriber’s credits will expire.
STANDARD OF ITEMS
Items may have been used by other Subscribers, but we will ensure the items are in good working order prior to making them available to you.
Items may be choking hazards as small parts are included or may be generated. Adult supervision is always recommended while using Sharesies items.
Returned and/or donated items are expected to be in good working order. Items will be inspected upon return to Sharesies. If an item’s condition has dramatically changed while in your possession, if the item has lost its’ intended function, and/or is missing piece(s), you will not receive credits for the item and Sharesies will have it recycled accordingly.
RECEVING AND EXCHANGING ITEMS
Items will be delivered to your home address in Manitoba as specified during your order for those items (the “shipping address”). Your delivery will arrive in accordance with the delivery option chosen at the time of the order. If items are sent for delivery but cannot be delivered, Sharesies will contact you for support. If we are unable to connect with you while making the delivery, the delivery will not occur and Sharesies will contact you via email to seek resolution. Items shall remain at our risk until they are delivered to your shipping address. We may use third party delivery companies to assist us with the delivery of items to the shipping address but any such third party delivery company is acting on our behalf and we will always be your primary point of contact for shipping/delivery.
DAMAGE & LOSS
