Description of transactions
A. Buying used Apple computers from individuals, exclusively within the Prefecture of Attica
2.1. Through our website you can sell us used Apple products-computers that you own, following a very easy and simple procedure, the steps of which you can see on our website and are for your own convenience described in detail below as well. This possibility regards exclusively the products which can be collected from specific points within the Prefecture of Attica.
2.2. Procedure of offer for purchase of your used computer: More specifically, through our website we offer you the opportunity to withdraw your used computer at a price corresponding to its value based on your computer’s features and the condition it is in after having been used by you. For this purpose, we invite you to submit an offer for purchase of your used computer under the terms and conditions herein. We have created a withdrawal procedure which guarantees that the price paid to you shall correspond to the actual value of your computer. The steps are the following:
2.2.1. You choose the computer system series (e.g. iMac or Mac Book etc) of your computer from the respective icon on our website
2.2.2. Filling-in a questionnaire: Fill in correctly the questionnaire with the actual details which describe your computer’s current condition on which the initial calculation of your computer’s value (henceforth the “Temporary Value”) shall be based. It is expressly pointed out that in filling out the specific details you declare under your sole responsibility that to the best of our knowledge these details are true and state the actual condition of your computer. However, your computer’s condition shall be verified/finalized after the product’s inspection by our company and the final calculation of your computer’s value (henceforth the “Final Value”).
2.2.3. Temporary Product Value: After filling in all the details in the respective questionnaire, the Temporary Product Value shall be automatically calculated. Then, you will have the choice to accept its Temporary Value, to make a counter-offer regarding the Temporary Value or to entirely reject the offer. In any case however, you accept that the Temporary Value (either the one automatically determined by us or the one determined by you and temporarily accepted by us) is without prejudice to the Final Value our company will determine after the computer’s final inspection at our facilities. Therefore, sending us a request stating interest in selling a used product which is based on its Temporary Value, constitutes an offer on your behalf towards us. We may accept this specific request or make a counter-offer regarding the purchase or even reject your offer in its entirety after the finalization of the inspection conducted at our facilities.
2.2.4. Solemn statement of the seller of the used product: After filling in the e-questionnaire the interested seller is obliged to download a solemn statement which includes all their details automatically filled in (based on the details the customer has stated during the registration). By this statement they shall be bound and shall guarantee that the product is neither stolen nor lost belonging to a third party and that they have acquired it in a lawful manner and that they have the ability to distribute it in the way set out in the terms of the Website. The interested buyer is obliged to sign the statement at a Citizens’ Service Centre (KEP) or before a Police Authority, which shall certify the authenticity of their signature. You bear the full responsibility for the product’s acquisition in good faith and in a lawful way and you release the company from any liability for your own unlawful acts or omissions. The company has the right to disclose your details in accordance with the law to any third party that has the right to be notified for the purposes of research, imputation of liability or imposition of penalties for any offences or omissions you may have committed. In case you do not fill in the above solemn statement then it is not possible for your offer to be sent to the company. The specific solemn statement must be filled in for every sale offer that the interested buyer submits.
2.2.5. Pick-up of the computer from your address for inspection free of charge: Upon completion of the questionnaire’s filling-in and submission of a request towards us, a user’s account is automatically created in your name on our Website (henceforth the “User’s Account”). For this purpose you are asked to determine a specific user name and a secret password, while every time you transact with our Company you may use this account. Then, after submitting your request to us we will send back to you within a reasonable period of time an automated email at your specified contact email address stating we have received your communication. Following that, within a reasonable time period, we will either send you an email or contact you via phone to inform you about the specific date and time we shall visit you to collect the product for inspection. In case we do not receive a further email or telephone communication from you to determine another reception day/time within 24 hours from the dispatch of our own email (or telephone communication) then we shall regard the specific date as valid and we shall come to the address specified by you to collect the product for inspection. The product’s date and time of receipt shall be determined by us based on our company’s general transport schedule and we shall do our best to avoid unjustified delays. In any case, however, we are not responsible for delays resulting from force majeure events (such as traffic, demonstrations, bad weather conditions etc.) – we will try though to keep you updated by all available means (email, communication via mobile phone, sms). We would like to inform you that product pick-up for inspection takes places on working days, Monday – Friday, 18.00 to 21.00 and on Saturday 18.00 to 21.00. In the case that we arrive at the specified time of our date and we do not find you at the specified place, then the company is not obliged to come again to collect the product. In that case it is you who must contact us anew.
2.2.5 The transport for the product’s inspection from the address specified by you to our Facilities shall be free of charge. We, however, would like to point out the following:
i) you must specify a specific pick-up point in a specific building within the Prefecture of Attica (exclusively) – henceforth the “Pick-up Point”. In the case that the product is delivered in an outdoor point or at the entrance of a building the company has the right to refuse to collect the product. If it is a third party that delivers the product and not you personally, then the third party is considered to act on behalf of the interested seller, the details of whom are stated in the solemn declaration and the questionnaire.
ii) upon pick-up of the product a first casual inspection shall be conducted (henceforth the “Temporary Inspection”) and we shall note on our special form few of the product’s external features (such as indicatively any visible scratches or other flaws, any visible damages based on the filled in e-questionnaire of the interested seller or any other external issue which may be spotted with a casual and quick initial inspection). This special form shall also be signed by you, the interested seller (or by the third party who shall deliver the product on your behalf) and shall constitute the product’s initially agreed properties which however are subject to the final inspection carried out by the company at its Facilities (henceforth the “Final Inspection”) which shall determine the Final Value of the product.
iii) You are to submit to the company the printed-out and signed (with authentication of the signature) solemn statement mentioned in Article 2.2.5. above, as well as a copy of your police identity card – the details of the solemn statement and of the identity card must match. In the case that you refuse or you do not provide the above, the company shall refuse to collect the product. It is clarified, that if the product is delivered by a third party, then the solemn statement must bear the authenticity of signature of the interested seller (not of the third party), and the identity card copy must match the details of the interested seller (not those of the third party).
2.2.6. Final Inspection/Final Used Product Value: After collecting the product as per the aforementioned procedure, the company shall carry out the Final Inspection of the product at its Facilities, on basis of which it shall determine the Final Value of the product and shall dispatch to you a relevant email for informational purposes within 5 working days at the very latest since the collection of the product.
i) In the case that the Final Value coincides with the Temporary Value then the email shall be considered as acceptance of your offer and the company shall proceed with depositing the amount as stated in article 2.4. below.
ii) In the case that the Final Value differs from the Temporary Value then the email shall contain a counter-offer of the company as regards the price. Attention: In the case that the company does not receive from you within 3 working days at the latest from the dispatching of the email containing its counter-offer, an email response from you accepting or rejecting its counter-offer, then it shall be considered that its counter-offer has been accepted and shall proceed with depositing the amount in the way stated in article 2.4. below.
iii) In the case that the company receives a new counter-offer form you by email within 3 working days from the dispatching of the company’s email further to point ii) above, then the company has the right to accept it, to make a new counter-offer or to reject this counter-offer.

v) The company has the right to reject from the beginning the product you offered for sale as well as your initial offer. In this case the company shall notify you accordingly by email and shall proceed with the product’s return procedure as stipulated in the following article.
2.3. In the event that the product is returned due to the absence of a purchase agreement on the side of the Company: In the case that due to any of the reasons mentioned in article 2.2.6. above the company returns the product to you, that will be on its own expense under the following terms:
i) the product shall be returned exclusively to the point from which it was originally collected.
ii) we will inform you via e-mail about the date and time of the product’s return. In case we are not notified regarding a failure of receipt at the specific date and time, then it shall be reasonably deemed that you have accepted it and subsequently you are required to be present at the Pick-up Point at the specific time.
The product’s date and time of receipt shall be determined by us based on our company’s general transport schedule and we shall do our best not to delay without reason. In any case, we are not responsible for delays due to force majeure (such as traffic, demonstrations, bad weather etc.) – we will, however, try to keep you updated by all available means (email, communication via mobile phone, sms). We would like to inform you that product pick-up for inspection takes place on working days, Monday – Friday, 18.00 to 21.00 and on Saturday 18.00 to 21.00.
iii) We would like you to pay special attention to the following:
a) In case we come to the Pick-up Point at the above specified time period and there is no one to receive the product, it shall be returned to our Facilities and you will be notified by email. Then, you will have to come and collect it yourself from our Facilities, either in person or by appointing an authorized person (it is required that you send us the details of this person beforehand and that this person carries with them their ID and your authorization bearing an authenticity of signature at the time of the pick-up).
b) In the case that you do not make any of the above actions to collect your product, we expressly state that the product shall remain at our facilities for a time period up to 3 months from its pick-up for inspection. During this period we shall keep it at our facilities as unremunerated safe-keepers. After the 3-month period has expired we shall send you a last email reminder. After 10 days since the dispatching of this last email we shall deliver the relevant product for recycling. Any expenses arising from the above procedure shall be borne by you and our company reserves the right to send you a relevant invoice for the covering of its expenses.
c) In the case that a third person appears at the Delivery Point to receive the product who declares that they are authorized by you and presents a document signed by you with authentication of the signature, then our company will reasonably assume that they are indeed authorized by you and shall not be liable for the delivery of the product to this person. If you wish that the product is delivered to you alone, please notify the company by e-mail accordingly before the delivery of the product. The company has the right (but is not obliged) to refuse the delivery to the third person.
d) In any case, upon delivery of the product a form shall be signed between the company and the receiver which shall constitute the product delivery-reception protocol releasing the company from any liability. Any refusal to sign the relevant protocol by you (or a third person according to the above) shall grant to the company the right to deny the delivery of the product, in which case the procedure stated in subparagraphs a) and b) above shall be followed.
2.4. Payment method for the used product purchased by us (if we conclude an agreement after inspecting the product): In the case that an agreement is concluded between us as stated in article 2.2.6 iv) then the company shall pay you the Final Value in one of the following payment methods of your choice. More specifically:
2.4.1. Via a deposit at a bank account in your name at a bank of your choice (notified to us through the filling-in of the questionnaire) the latest within 5 working days upon conclusion of the agreement.
By depositing the amount of the price to the specific bank account that you specified, the payment obligation is extinguished on our side according to the agreement between us. You are liable for communicating to us correct and accurate details regarding the full payment of the product’s price. The payment shall be proven by the respective bank statement or electronic proof of payment at the specific bank account.
2.5. You bear sole and full responsibility for fulfilling your tax duties, for issuing the appropriate sale documents, for complying with all relevant laws and conditions. The company does not know (and is not obliged to know) whether you are an individual or a trader (regardless of the number or the value of your sales towards our Company) and you are obliged to consult your accountant on your respective duties. The Company shall however provide any information requested by the respective Authorities regarding your transactions on www.flip2store.gr whenever it is requested according to the legal terms and conditions.
B. Selling new or used Apple computers (all over Greece)
Moreover, on the e-store of the Company, which is an authorized retailer of Apple products, there are available for sale either new Apple products-computers (i.e. third-party supplier products) or used Apple products-computers that the Company has acquired through the procedure stipulated in section A above.
It is clarified that for distance contracts:
a) consumer means any natural person acting for purposes not relating to his trade, business, craft or profession;
b) supplier: any natural or legal person, irrespective of whether privately or publicly owned, who is acting, including through any person acting in his name or on his behalf, for purposes relating to his trade, business, craft or profession.
To avoid any misinterpretation, if you wish for an invoice to be issued and dispatched, then you shall be considered as “supplier”, while in the case you are a natural person and you wish for a receipt to be issued and dispatched you will be considered as “consumer”.
3.2. Description and Features of products for sale
The company reserves the right to choose at its sole discretion the products offered for sale in its e-store and modify, renew and/or withdraw them at any time, without penalty and without an obligation of prior notification. The same applies to the products’ prices, any offers and discounts which the company may apply at its sole discretion and which may change at any time without an obligation of prior notification (it is understood that all the aforementioned apply before the conclusion of a transaction agreement with you).
3.3. In any case it is pointed out that
i) As regards used products, the description of the products for sale and their features stem from answers of the initial buyers as well as from the Final Inspection the Company conducted before purchasing them. The Company does everything it can to determine and verify the condition of the products during the Final Inspection it conducts, however, you recognize that these products are used and can in no way have the same efficiency and features as a new product even if they have suffered very little damage/deterioration/defects and have been only slightly used by their initial buyer. Used products are offered as they are, with no commercial warrantee and no warrantee whatsoever as to their fitness for purpose and more specifically (but not exclusively) for the purpose mentioned on the respective new product. All used products are covered under Article 45 concerning the VAT margin on the difference profit.
Furthermore, you are aware that used devices may have been repaired and a key component may have been replaced or a part may have been repaired under an Apple repair and replacement program or by non-authorized service providers and/or repair/replacement by an Apple Authorised Service Provider. As is reasonable and understood, it is neither obligatory nor possible for flip2store.gr to know any such information. The interested customer may request this information only from an authorized apple service provider after the purchase of the product. The purchase of the used product by you is carried out in full knowledge of the above.
ii) As regards the new products posted for sale, these include the properties and features made known to us by their manufacturer. The same applies for the description of the intended purpose of each product. The Company is not obliged, nor has the ability, to check nor is responsible for the truth, the accuracy, or the precision of the description, or the fitness of the products for their intended purpose.
iii) Therefore, the Company is not obliged to compensate the customer for any incidental and consequential damage arising out of the use or inability to use the product (either used or new).
Terms and sale completion stages
4.1. By placing an order through our e-store or via telephone, the buyer agrees with the implementation of the present terms and conditions. It is explicitly pointed out that this Website does not constitute a proposal for an agreement conclusion towards the buyer (consumer and/or supplier) but an invitation for the latter to submit an offer. The stages of the procedure from the order submission on behalf of the buyer to the purchase agreement conclusion between the buyer and the company are the following:
4.2. The sale completion procedure of a product (new or used) is the following:
4.2.1. Upon entering our e-store you may choose the product you are interested in by going to the respective category of products.
By clicking on the product that interests you, you may see the product’s picture and description. Our Website offers you information on the product’s features, its technical description as well as the option to download manuals (provided they exist) by clicking on the respective option.
4.2.2. To complete your transaction you are asked either to register as a new member and acquire a User Account on our Website (if you don’t already have one) or to proceed to buying the product through the “fast buy” procedure by filling in each time the necessary details.
It is however pointed out that if you have previously sold to the Company a used product you have to continue to the procedure through your User Account, otherwise in case you wish to pay the price by offsetting the Final Value calculated for the purchase of your used product, this will not be feasible (i.e. if you have not already acquired a User Account).
4.2.3. The products will be displayed on the Website marked “Available” or “To order”.
Once the ordering procedure is completed you receive an automated message confirming receipt of the order, sent to you at your specified e-mail address.
As regards the above message, the following distinction applies:
i) If the product is Available, this confirmation message includes detailed information about your order, informing you about the availability and the price of the product. The dispatch of the aforementioned e-mail constitutes the Company’s acceptance of the offer made by you for the conclusion of an agreement and therefore the agreement between the buyer and the Company is concluded only when the Company sends the message by which it accepts your offer in accordance with the above.
ii) In cases where the product is marked as “To order” (applies only to new products) then the Company must place a special order to the product’s manufacturer. Therefore, the automated order receipt confirmation e-mail which you shall receive from the Company does not constitute an acceptance of your order or a conclusion of an agreement with the Company. Contrariwise, the order is received by the Company with the reservation of an availability check by the manufacturers as well as of the price accuracy/up-to-datedness of the ordered product. Consequently, during this stage the agreement between the buyer and our Company hasn’t yet been concluded. Any price that has been reserved (e.g. in the case you choose to use a credit card) by a third party payment service provider or that has been paid, constitutes an agreed monetary guarantee and not a payment of the price, which shall only be paid in full after confirming availability and price accuracy and concluding the agreement between us.
Then, provided that the product is available from the supplier, you receive an automated e-mail declaring the acceptance of your order by the Company, which also informs you about the product’s final price and delivery time. The dispatch of the aforementioned e-mail constitutes the Company’s acceptance of the offer made by you for the conclusion of an agreement and therefore the agreement between the buyer and the Company is concluded only when the Company sends the message by which it accepts your offer. In case however, that the product’s final price is greater than the price indicated on the Website at the time your agreement conclusion offer was dispatched, then we shall contact you via a personal e-mail to finalize the agreement.
4.2.4. Through your access in your User Account by using your secret password you have the ability to view your pending orders, the progress of every order, the orders’ content as well as your communication and transaction history with flip2store.com. In case any issue comes to our attention in relation to your order or any change of your order we shall inform you accordingly via e-mail or phone.
4.3. In case of a phone order, the Company shall take all appropriate legal actions for the conclusion of an agreement with the buyer, among which is acquiring the buyer’s consent for the order via e-mail. Phone orders are also subject to these terms and conditions.
To complete the order you must provide via acceptance of the present terms your consent for the processing of your personal information, so that you may receive a notification regarding the progress of your order as well as the fulfilment of our contractual and legal obligations towards you.
5.1. Product prices
The product prices displayed on our e-store are in Euro and include the Value Added Tax. The indicated prices do not include the required surcharges for shipment, postal fees and packaging as well as special product wrapping etc. which are calculated according to the product and the delivery point you choose during the order submission procedure, as described in detail in article 4 above. Moreover, the indicated prices do not include any expenses or charges required in the case the price is paid via bank transfer (your bank’s commission or/and the Company’s bank commission etc.) or other banking surcharges. These expenditures may not be calculated beforehand as they are set by the bank’s pricing policy each time.
5.2. The Company has the right, and you accept it, to freely set the product prices, to modify them and to change and/or withdraw any offers at any time without an obligation of prior notification. You will be informed about the price that applies each time through the relative post of the product on the website. Especially regarding used products, the time has been set after the product’s Final Inspection. Your submission of an offer for the purchase of a product means you accept the price posted based on the description of the product as fair and reasonable under the present terms and conditions. However, although we take due care to ensure all details, descriptions and prices appearing on this Website are accurate, there is the possibility that clerical errors may arise, of which you shall be informed immediately should they come to our attention.
For available products the delivery time is 1-5 working days from the date the product is delivered to the courier services for transport. For products available upon order we shall notify you on the exact delivery time by means of an availability confirmation e-mail (depending on the time the product was delivered to us by the importer).
We inform you that the delivery date of the products may change without the Company’s liability, as the products for sale are not manufactured by the Company itself but from third party manufacturers in Greece or abroad. In any case of modification of the delivery deadline initially communicated to you, we shall contact you to update you accordingly. In the case that the delivery is required to take place up to a certain deadline, we inform you that you must either point it out at the comments accompanying your order or notify us accordingly via e-mail at email@example.com so as to avoid any issues regarding products which are not available.
7.1. Means of transport and delivery
Our Company provides for your own convenience various means of product receipt and delivery. As regards the transport expenses, these shall be calculated and displayed to you before the completion of your order.
The transport cost may change for future purchases without an obligation of prior notification (does not concern already concluded transaction agreements with pending deliveries).
7.2. It is clarified that the transport is conducted via a courier service. The Company chooses the courier service through which the product deliveries are conducted at its sole discretion.
7.3. The Company cannot guarantee the timely delivery of the products, when the delivery takes place by courier service or through a transport service. The deadline for delivery of the products by the courier or the transport service is set exclusively by the latter depending on the delivery address. The Company delivers the products to the courier service or provides the products for pick-up form the courier service within the provisioned period according to the delivery time specifications. In any case, however, we are not liable for any delays resulting from force majeure events (such as traffic, demonstrations, bad weather conditions etc.) We inform you that returns of products take place on working days from 10.00 to 18.00.
8.1. Payment method
For your own convenience and most effective service we offer the following payment methods for you to choose from:
a) through credit card for all the amount at one, or by installments
There is a possibility to pay 3 til 12 interest-free free installments.
In detail, credit card payment from 3 to 12 interest-free installments.
For products worth € 500 – 1000, you can pay up to 3 interest-free installments.
For products worth more than € 1001, you may pay up to 12 interest-free installments.
The approval of interest-free installments is always up to the Bank that issued your credit card. Applies to cards issued in Greece. In the case you choose to use a credit card as a payment method, we inform you that the amount is either paid directly provided that the product is available or if the product is to be obtained by order then it is temporarily reserved by the placement of your order and is released as soon as the availability check is conducted according to article 4.2.3. ii) above and as soon as the agreement between us is concluded. Any price reserved before the conclusion of the agreement constitutes a financial guarantee and not a payment of the price, which shall be paid in full only upon verification of the availability and the price accuracy and upon the conclusion of the transaction agreement or service agreement under the terms of the third party payment service provider.
Our company, in setting as its highest priority the maximum possible security of transactions has the ability (but is not obliged to) conduct an inspection through the payment service providers it collaborates with, regarding the accuracy of the payment details communicated by you (in case of payment via credit card) during the stage of order completion. Through the connection with a third party service provider the company may reject your order if it is established or suspected that there is any issue in connection to these details.
b) via bank deposit in one of the following bank accounts:
Alpha Bank: GR14 0140 3510 3510 0200 2005 118
National Bank (Ethniki trapeza): GR96 0110 4110 0000 4116 1816 008
Keep in mind that if you are an account holder of Alpha bank or National bank is legitimate to choose one of the above, for immediate transfer. In the opposite case you have another bank, the transaction requires more time (usually 2-3 business days) to complete the transfer. This depends on each of the respective bank policy. In this case please bear in mind that the order is further processed upon appearance of the deposited full amount in the company’s account. In case the deposit does not take place within 3 working days from the conclusion of the transaction agreement, the order and the transaction shall become fully invalid and without any penalty.
c) via cash-on-delivery of the product.
The allowable limit for cash payment is what is defined by the law (at present, up to € 500 for sale to suppliers but also for sale to consumers). Therefore, in the case of cash on delivery you will have to pay at the POS terminal of the courier agency you are served, with a debit or credit card charge.
The price may cover the entire or a part of the purchase amount, but it may not be less than that amount. This means that no amount can be credited for future purchases from our e-store and you are obliged to spend the entire amount on your next purchase. Full payment shall be done by setting-off the product’s Final Value with the amount corresponding to the product you wish to purchase.
By sending a proposal to conclude a transaction agreement you offer us an irrevocable order and authorization to set off the Final Value we may owe you with the amount corresponding to the product to be purchased. It is however pointed out that in order to complete the new transaction you need to pay us any remaining amount for the product to be fully paid-off. The transaction must take place the latest within 2 days from the dispatching of the e-mail concluding an agreement between us, otherwise we hall proceed to the payment of the product’s Final Value at the account which you have specified.
8.2. If you have chosen to pay via credit card, the procedure shall be carried out and completed via our trusted partner, a banking institution which provides according to its statement all safety measures regarding electronic transactions. The pick-up and processing of the payment details you have sent us are conducted only by the collaborating financial institutions which are solely responsible for their processing in view of the completion of the payment.
8.3. In case you have chosen to pay via credit card, it is reasonable that the owner of the credit card is present at the time of the receipt of the order, carrying with him his credit card and his Identity Card or in the case that a third person acts as the recipient, it is reasonable that you previously inform us accordingly via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. However, if before the distributor appears at the delivery address stated by you, a person which claims that they are you or that they are acting in your name and on your behalf after receiving relevant oral authorization by you, then it is reasonably assumed by the distributor that this person acts in this capacity.

It is a fully certified system, compliant with international PCI DSS safety standards.
- Supports 3D MasterCard® SecureCode™/Verified by VISA transactions: As long as customers and cardholders are registered with the MasterCard® SecureCode™ or Verified by VISA service provided by the issuing Bank, they can be authenticated by using their PIN.
- Enables the card number not to be used at the merchant’s e-shop in future transactions, by use of “Tokenization”, whereby the card number is converted into a unique e- token. More specifically, the customer can revisit the e-shop to make purchases without each time having to re-enter his or her card details.
