2. Fee Avoidance
Any action by a seller to avoid paying a fee is considered fee avoidance and is strictly prohibited by Locally Made. This includes, for example, encouraging buyers to purchase an item in your Locally Made shop through another venue. A transaction initiated on Locally Made may not be completed off the Locally Made site. The price stated in each listing description must be an accurate representation of the sale. Sellers may not alter the item’s price after a sale for the purpose of avoiding Locally Made transaction fees, misrepresent the item’s location, or use another user’s account without permission.
3. Paying your Locally Made Fees
Locally Made will automatically deduct all fees owed from your payment account. Provided you have sufficient funds in your payment account no further payment action is required. If your payment account does not contain sufficient funds you are responsible for paying any fees owed in full within 15 days of the date of your monthly statement, or the account will be considered past due, and Locally Made may charge your card on file or take other actions to collect funds as laid out in the Recoupment section of Locally Made’s Payments Policy. If you make a sale while you have an outstanding balance the net sale amount will be applied to your outstanding balance. You may pay your outstanding balance manually by credit card, or debit card.
Locally Made may suspend your selling privileges at any time pending payment of your outstanding balance.
