FORD MARKETPLACE TERMS

These Marketplace Terms (“Terms”) govern the use the Ford Marketplace (available on www.ford.ie) (“Ford Marketplace”). The Ford Marketplace is operated by Henry Ford & Son Limited. Registered in Ireland: No 4441. Registered Office: Elm Court, Boreenmanna Road, Cork

These Terms do not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with us or other Ford companies. These Terms contain important information about the Ford Marketplace.  By using the Ford Marketplace, you acknowledge that you have read and understood these Terms, and that you agree to be bound by them.

1. ORDER PROCESS

VEHICLES 

Through the Ford Marketplace, you can configure selected new Ford vehicles and place orders with participating Ford dealers. As part of the order process, you will select the Ford dealer with whom you will place your order (your “Dealer”). You will be required to enter into an order form with your Dealer, setting out key information about your order and your Dealer’s terms and conditions. You should read these documents carefully before proceeding.

Cash purchases: you will have the option to purchase your selected vehicle outright in cash from your Dealer. This purchase will be between you and your Dealer. Please see your Dealer’s terms and conditions for more information. 

Finance: you may have the option to apply for finance from third party providers outside of the Ford Marketplace. Please note that finance is subject to terms and conditions. You should read any Finance related documents carefully before proceeding.

WALLBOXES 

For selected battery electric/plug-in hybrid vehicles, you may have the option to order a wallbox.  

On the Ford Marketplace, you can order an available wallbox from your Dealer as an accessory (without installation included). See Section 3 below for more information on accessories.

If you wish to order a wallbox with installation, this can be arranged through Ford’s recommended third party installation provider.

PART EXCHANGE

You can arrange with your Dealer the part exchange of your existing vehicle. You could apply the funds towards your deposit for your new vehicle. Your part exchange will be handled by your selected Dealer. Please see your Dealer’s terms and conditions for more information.

If there is any outstanding finance on your existing vehicle, you must ensure that information submitted to your Dealer is accurate and up to date. You are responsible for settling the outstanding finance (unless agreed differently with your Dealer).

2. VEHICLE PRICE

When you order a vehicle through the Ford Marketplace, your Dealer will provide an On The Road cash price for your chosen vehicle as part of the checkout process. This On The Road cash price is valid on the date of order. Please note that changes to government legislation, currency conversion rates and tax changes could impact the On The Road cash price.

3. OPTIONS AND ACCESSORIES

If, through the course of this process, you add certain optional factory fitted features or available accessories to your selected vehicle, the Dealer’s price of such features will be added to the total price and any changes to VRT will be reflected.

You may have the option to order third party accessories, which are identified under that third party's brand name. Please note that third party branded accessories do not come with a Ford warranty but may be covered by the third party’s own warranty, details of which will be included within the packaging that the accessories are supplied in.   

4. PAYMENTS

If you place an order for a vehicle through the Ford Marketplace, your Dealer may require you to pay a deposit. Your Dealer will specify any deposit amount as part of the checkout process. You will make this payment to your Dealer using the default payment card in your Ford Pay Wallet. As a result, you authorize your Dealer to charge your default payment card for the amount owed. For more information on the Ford Pay Wallet, please also see the Ford Pay Payment Terms: and Privacy Policy.

Remaining Balance: you will need to pay your Dealer any remaining balance for the vehicle prior to receiving the vehicle. Your Dealer will contact you to arrange this. 

Delivery and other charges: your Dealer may charge you an additional charge for the cost of delivery (where available) and additional charges for other services/support provided. In this case, your Dealer will provide the charge amount(s) to you as soon as possible (including as part of the checkout process).  

5. VEHICLE IMAGERY

The vehicles available to order through the Ford Marketplace are from our current manufactured range. The images of the vehicles and the size and dimension icons and indicators on the Ford Marketplace are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the sizes and colours of our vehicles, accessories and trim accurately, we cannot guarantee that your PC, laptop, tablet or phone will display the sizes or colours accurately to reflect the actual size or colour of the vehicles. Your new vehicle may vary slightly from those images.

We may, from time to time, make minor changes to our vehicle specifications to implement small technical adjustments. 

6. FORD PROGRAMMES & CROSS BORDER SALES

Ford programmes

Please note that you cannot use the following programmes on orders made through the Ford Marketplace: (i) Ford Privilege; (ii) Ford Ambassador; (iii) D-Plan programmes; (iv) Ford Fleet; (v) Motability; and (vi) Military and Diplomatic personnel sales.

Cross Border Sales 

For cash sales, if your selected Dealer is not located in your country of residency, please be aware that your Dealer may not offer the option of home delivery to your country of residency and you will therefore need to collect the vehicle from the Dealer’s premises. You should take tax advice before placing an order should you intend to permanently move the vehicle to a different country

7. CHANGING YOUR MIND

If you are unable or do not wish to proceed with your order, please contact your Dealer as soon as possible to discuss your options.  

Furthermore, Ford may terminate or suspend your access to the Ford Marketplace at any time (acting reasonably) by written notice (including by e-mail to your current registered email address) for reasons including (but not limited to) the following:

  • you commit a serious or persistent breach of a term which you fail to remedy (if remediable) within 5 days after the service of written notice requiring you to do so; or
  • (in the reasonable opinion of Ford) circumstances beyond the reasonable control of Ford impairs or prevents Ford from operating the Ford Marketplace or products.
8. ACCOUNT & PASSWORD

Ford account

Where you create a Ford account, you will be asked to provide a user name and password. This will allow you to access your ordered vehicles. You must keep the password secure and must not share it with any other person. We are not responsible for any misuse of your Ford account where you have caused your username and password to be known by another person.

You must tell us as soon as possible if you think your password has been shared or your Ford account has been accessed without your authority. We may disable your account immediately if we know of or suspect any misuse.  

9. VEHICLES/PRODUCT ASSISTANCE 

In the event that you believe the vehicle/product is defective or mis-described or you believe a fault develops with your vehicle/product, then please contact your Dealer as soon as possible (as a delay in doing so might affect any remedy available to you). Your dealer will discuss your rights and remedies with you. 

If you feel that a vehicle/product you have ordered from us is unsatisfactory, please contact your Dealer as soon as possible (as a delay in doing so might affect any remedy available to you). Your Dealer will discuss your rights and remedies with you. 

Ford will provide the Ford Marketplace platform through which you can order selected vehicles/products from participating Ford dealers (who are independent operating businesses) and other selected third parties. Ford will not be the seller or supplier of the vehicles/products on the Ford Marketplace. As a result, Ford does not control and assumes no responsibility for the sale/supply of the vehicles/products to you by the Ford dealers and other third party sellers
