1. MATCHRX LICENSE
1.1 Grant of License. You grant MatchRX a perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, worldwide, irrevocable, royalty-free right to exercise publicity, database, trademark and copyright rights, including the right to reproduce, modify, adapt, publish and display on the Site and on the sites of our partners and affiliated companies, any public content you may provide to MatchRX in connection with your use of MatchRX and its Services. You agree that MatchRX shall be permitted to use your name or user ID, home city and other ancillary information (for example, the number of years you have been a MatchRX user) in connection with the content in conjunction with MatchRX’s marketing, promotion and publicity efforts in any media known now or in the future.

MatchRX will not share your bank account information with any entity.
1.2 Release. MatchRX acts as a marketplace only to allow Buyers and Sellers to interact. In all cases, the submission and confirmation of orders are transactions between Buyers and Sellers only. The fulfillment of confirmed orders, including DSCSA compliance, and delivery and shipment of Prescription Drugs, are the responsibility of the Seller. If you have a dispute with one or more registered users, you release MatchRX and all affiliated companies, officers, directors, agents, parents, subsidiaries, legal representatives and employees from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such dispute. You further agree that MatchRX shall not be deemed a party to any contract by and between Seller and Buyer.
2. POSTING CONDITIONS
2.1 Posting Process. A registered user who wants to sell/transfer Prescription Drugs may post (place for sale) the Prescription Drugs to the Site. As part of the posting process, the Seller assigns a price to the Prescription Drugs and provides information such as the National Drug Code (NDC), size, pack size, pack quantity, expiration date, lot number, serial number (if applicable) and package condition in accordance with the process outlined in the Seller’s section. Seller attests the posted item was purchased from a manufacturer or wholesaler in compliance with the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) exclusive of a government pricing program and/or within the seller’s authorized limited distribution network, and stored/handled under the manufacturer’s temperature and storage requirements. Sellers can modify any open field of an open posting or remove the posting from the Site.
2.2 Fixed and Declining Pricing Formats. A Seller who posts a Prescription Drug for sale on the Site must sell/transfer such Prescription Drug at a minimum discount of 9% below the prevailing Wholesale Acquisition Cost (WAC). When WAC pricing is not available, the Seller must post the Prescription Drug at a minimum discount of 25% below the current Average Average Wholesale Price (AAWP) per unit. WAC and AAWP for each NDC is provided by Medi-Span, an industry recognized national drug database. AAWP discounts may not apply to generic drugs. If a Seller attempts to post a Prescription Drug at a price outside of these parameters, an error message will appear displaying the proper pricing range. A Seller who posts a Prescription Drug for sale on the Site may choose to sell/transfer such Prescription Drug in one of two pricing formats: fixed price or declining price.
- Fixed Price: the Seller sets a definite price at which the Prescription Drug will sell/transfer immediately when a Buyer places an order for the Prescription Drug.
- Declining Price: the Seller sets both a maximum and minimum price for the Prescription Drug. The Prescription Drug price will first appear at the maximum price and decrease incrementally every week for 10 weeks by 10% of the difference in the maximum and minimum provided, until the Prescription Drug sells/transfers or the minimum price is reached, whichever comes first. For example, if a Seller posts a Prescription Drug on a declining basis at $500 maximum and $400 minimum ($100 difference), the price will decrease by $10 each week for 10 weeks until the Prescription Drug sells or its minimum price is reached.
2.3 Seller Responsibility and Posting Accuracy. Once a Buyer makes a purchase of Prescription Drugs from a Seller, Seller is responsible for fulfilling the order with the exact Prescription Drugs that the Seller posted. The fulfillment of confirmed orders, including shipment and delivery of Prescription Drugs, is the sole responsibility of the Seller. The Seller may be charged a cancellation fee if Seller lists Prescription Drugs for sale and is unable to produce the exact Prescription Drug(s) in the order. The cancellation fee is equal to 10% of the order amount not to exceed $25 (the “Cancellation Fee”). MatchRX is not responsible for any errors made by the Seller in the posting or pricing of Prescription Drugs and is not liable for any such errors. Seller agrees to honor the price posted when fulfilling the order. MatchRX may waive any Cancellation Fee in its sole discretion. Multiple transactions giving rise to a Cancellation Fee may result in temporary suspension or permanent removal from the marketplace.
2.4 Personal Information in Seller Comments. As a Seller, you agree not to place any personal information (including, but not limited to, addresses, phone numbers, or email addresses) in the Seller Comments area of Prescription Drug postings.
2.5 Traceability and Audit Requirements. Upon request of the Buyer, MatchRX, third party (i.e. wholesaler, insurance provider), or any governmental regulatory agency, the Seller must provide within the amount of time required by applicable state or federal law or 48 hours, whichever is less, proof of payment and pedigree (aka wholesaler invoice) of each item posted and sold on the site including but not limited to the Transaction History (Statement of Origin) which traces the drug from the point of manufacture and contains information about all transactions that the item undergoes until it reaches the Buyer. You agree that each item posted for sale in the marketplace meets the compliance and reporting criteria of the DSCSA and any promulgated regulations then in force.
2.6 Substituted Prescription Drugs. Prescription Drugs posted and described must be the actual Prescription Drugs available from Seller. Prescription Drugs may not be substituted or mixed with comparable prescription drugs. Actual posted Prescription Drugs and the amount described must be provided to the Buyer. MatchRX reserves the right at its sole discretion to terminate a transaction or Seller’s membership if it deems any Prescription Drugs offered by Seller to be suspect, counterfeit, adulterated, or suspicious in any way.
2.7 Posting Limitations – NDC. A member is limited to posting and selling 20 containers of any generic NDC and 20 containers of any brand NDC over a rolling 12 month period. Certain antiretroviral and oncology NDCs are limited to 10 over a rolling 12 month period. At the time of posting, the marketplace will restrict the quantity allowed for that specific NDC after calculating the sales history and current open postings in the marketplace. For example: Quantity sold of generic NDC 123456789 within the past 12 months = 1. Quantity currently for sale by Seller (open posting) of NDC 123456789 = 4. Total allowed for new posting = 15 (20 allowed – 1 sold – 4 currently posted).
2.8 Posting Limitation – Unsealed Items. A member is limited to selling one (1) partial pack of any unique NDC over a rolling 90 day period, and one (1) full unsealed item of any unique NDC over a rolling 90 day period. A message will display at the time of posting if the limitation has been reached, prohibiting the member from adding the item to the marketplace.
2.9 Warranties of Seller – 2013 Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) – Transaction Statement. Items posted to the Site must comply with the DSCSA. By listing Prescription Drugs on the Site, Seller expressly warrants the following: (1) that the sale of Prescription Drugs will comply in all respects with the DSCSA; (2) that all Prescription Drugs were received from a person in compliance with the DSCSA; (3) that Seller received transaction information and a transaction statement from the prior owner of the product, as required under section 582 of the DSCSA; (4) that Seller did not knowingly ship a suspect or illegitimate product; (5) that Seller had systems and processes in place to comply with verification requirements under section 582 of the DSCSA; (6) that Seller did not knowingly provide false transaction information; and (7) that Seller did not knowingly alter the transaction history.
2.10 Double Posting and Removal of Prescription Drugs. Except as provided herein, you agree not to promote the sale of Prescription Drugs through any site other than MatchRX without express permission from MatchRX. We reserve the right to prohibit users from posting Prescription Drugs at MatchRX if they are not able to provide the exact Prescription Drugs that were posted at MatchRX. If you, at any time, fail to deliver the Prescription Drugs you’ve posted or deliver invalid, fraudulent, adulterated, or misrepresented Prescription Drugs, MatchRX reserves the right to cancel the order, suspend or cancel your membership, contact applicable regulatory agencies, and charge you a discretionary nuisance fee.
2.11 Accurate Descriptions. For all Prescription Drugs you post as the Seller, you warrant that your descriptions of the Prescription Drugs accurately detail and describe the Prescription Drugs offered for sale. If you, at any time, deliver invalid, fraudulent, adulterated, or misrepresented Prescription Drugs, MatchRX reserves the right to cancel the order, return the Prescription Drugs to you, and hold you liable for any and all charges we incur to satisfy the Buyer. These charges may include, but are not limited to shipping and handling charges, and refunds to the Buyer.
3. BUYING CONDITIONS
3.1 Placing an Order – Warranties of Buyer. By selecting and agreeing to purchase Prescription Drugs from a Seller, Buyer attests that the item(s) is for a specific patient need or declared public health emergency, and is authorized to purchase and dispense if the item is subject to a limited distribution network, and will be tracked in accordance with the DSCSA. MatchRX will debit the Buyer’s account at the time the Seller confirms the availability of the Prescription Drug(s) and produces the packing slip and shipping label.

Upon receipt and completion of the transactions, Buyer may continue to purchase other Prescription Drugs on the Site not to exceed $20,000 of orders in process.
3.2 Bank Account Authorization. The Buyer’s account is charged when the Seller confirms availability of the Prescription Drug(s) ordered by Buyer.

When ordering Prescription Drugs, an authorization is sent to the Buyer’s bank account via Automated Clearing House (ACH) for each order placed by the Buyer. In all cases, MatchRX is not responsible for any bank fees, including but not limited to overdraft or wire fees. A $25 fee will be accessed by MatchRX for every non-sufficient fund (NSF) occurrence.

Once MatchRX obtains an order from a Buyer, MatchRX notifies the Seller of the sale via email and/or text message and/or mobile push notification that a Buyer has purchased the posted Prescription Drugs at the posted price and is willing to pay the shipping or handling charges (when applicable) for the Prescription Drugs. At this time, MatchRX reserves the right to cancel any order that it identifies as suspect or fraudulent.
