I need another way to say "as is". I've tried to look up in every dictionary and thesaurus

    What's wrong with as is? Can you give us two example sentences in which you'd like to use this contraction (with blanks)? – Dan Bron Aug 4 '15 at 20:37
  • How about talis qualis? An as is sale is sometimes called nonrefundable. – jxh Aug 4 '15 at 20:49
  • Warts and all is common, if "colloquial". – FumbleFingers Aug 4 '15 at 21:06
  • In India, it is common to say "As it is". – Tabrez Ahmed Aug 4 '15 at 21:14

    Well, "stet" means "as is" in some contexts. But there are many possible contexts and you don't even give us a hint. – Hot Licks Aug 4 '15 at 23:52

Assuming you mean as-is in the sense of selling something as-is:

What you see is what you get

Informal expression that conveys that the thing in question may or may not be in perfect condition or work perfectly, and that it's up to the other party to determine that for themselves.

caveat emptor

Literally buyer beware, this phrase means that the other party in the transaction agrees to assume any risk of a defective product.

no guarantees expressed or implied

This is a little bit more legal sounding, so I linked an article explaining more. Basically, there are expressed guarantees ("The car I'm selling runs great!") and implied guarantees ("I'm selling a car, not a picture of a car"). This phrase is an attempt to claim you're providing neither.

    What you see is what you get is also shortened to WYZIWYG (spoken: whizzy-wig). Usually in reference to text/HTML editors on the web. – VampDuc Aug 5 '15 at 17:30
  • I thought it was WYSIWG, but a quick google search shows both are commonly used. Interesting. – WithScience Aug 5 '15 at 19:16

It is common usage in the United Kingdom to say "as seen". This implies that the buyer should use their own judgement and that no guarantees are given other than those legally required.
