GOODS AND MAKE IT AVAILABLE TO OTHER MEMBERS UNLESS THEY HAVE AN
EXCLUSIVE RIGHT TO MARKET SAID INVENTORY.
• If a Wholesaler is a VirtCert member and has not authorized
you to sell their goods, you may not upload their data from another
source into your own inventory (this would bypass our authorization
• Wholesalers may upload data on goods that they own or have
exclusive rights to market. This data may be made available to other
companies via our Authorization system.

EXCLUSIVE rights to market.

for use ONLY WITHIN the web site associated with their member account.
• These rules are required to maintain the integrity of our
system and protect the sales channels of our members.
Without these rules we would have the following problems (among
• Many members would be listing the same inventory, all at
different prices, which would look bad as customers would see the
identical diamonds listed at multiple prices.
• Members would not update their inventory at the same times,
resulting in stones that should no longer be available still being
listed, with the same problems described above.
• The sales process would become more fractured, with another
company having to serve as a middleman, slowing down the process,
adding another layer of cost and reducing the reliability of the
• The company who actually owns the stone would miss out on
a sales opportunity to sell alternative goods in the event that
the requested one is no longer available. The lead would be diverted
to the member inappropriatly listing the owners' inventory.
• Diamond Sea would be subject to requests and/or orders
to remove the inventory from our system by the company that actually
owns the goods.
• Diamond Sea would not have a direct channel to the true
owner of the goods in order to resolve any issues that may arise
regarding their inventory.

have access to, please let us know or have them contact us and we
will be happy to set them up with a free trial account so that they
can see the benefits of our services.
