How does it work
When you upload an item you must own or have rights to use the intellectual property rights of that item and that item does not infringe the intellectual property rights of a third party.
You set the price for your item. After all it is your creation, not ours. However, when we see no sales for a longer period, we may suggest another price strategy.
Before an item becomes available in our marketplace, we review the item’s details. If it is conform our guidelines, the item will be approved and made available to our audience. If some details need adjustments, or further details are needed, we will let you know. If the item does not offer the quality we require and we feel it does not benefit our audience, we will reject the item at our discretion and further communication about our decision is not open for discussion.
You will receive the item price minus our fee. We take care of the payment processing and marketing expenses. Payments of your earnings are based on minimum threshold amounts and are paid to you on a monthly basis in US dollars. You are responsible for all costs of converting the amount of the payment from US dollars into your preferred currency. We may issue a credit or refund to a buyer in certain circumstances if there are issues with your item or if a transaction is reversed. If so, we reserve the right to deduct related amount from your account.
