3. Fees for Store Subscriptions (please see our Seller Fees page linked from our user agreement)
By registering for a Small Business Barn Store, you agree to pay all applicable fees for our subscribers.
Please see our Seller Fees Page for details on our commission, late fees, compliance fees, bank service charges and other fees. Our fees may be changed from time to time. We will give you at least 14 day notice via email if there is a change to our fees.
Fees may differ based on such things as if you are utilizing a certain payment method such as managed payments.
We offer a lower monthly rate for product sellers because if they sell on our site we will earn a commission on the sale.
If you are using our site to list your services or to sell goods whose sale cannot occur completely online due to extensive legal requirements ( Real Estate and Automobile sales ) we charge you the service business higher subscription price since we will not earn a commission on your sales.
Our Monthly Store Subscription fees include but are not limited to, recurring subscription fees ( “Store subscription fee”). If you subscribed for more than one month you will pay a Store Subscription Fee for each month of a current subscription (monthly, or yearly also stated as annually). Yearly or annual subscriptions may be discounted. The subscription fee will be charged at the beginning of the billing cycle. The fee will be the fee associated with your specified subscription type and term.
The number of listings allowed for you to use every month is for YOUR use only. You may not use unused listings for any other person or business under your account. Although we are aware that some businesses will not use all 25 listings we have made the price affordable enough to allow many to remain unused. It will be helpful for service and sales people to be able to list each separate service they offer.
4. Billing & Payment terms
We will bill subscription fees monthly on the 20th of the month for the next month. Subscription fees will be automatically deducted from your payment method on file.
We will deduct our direct sales (seller fees) commissions and fees from payouts due to you for the sale.
If you incur any other fees we will invoice you via email. We will charge your payment method on file on the due date. If your payment method fails we may use other payment methods on file such as your debit card or linked bank account, and / or begin collections actions and enforcement actions up to closing your account.
5. Initial Billing and Benefits
We will pro-rate the first month of your subscription by dividing the total monthly subscription price by the number of days in the month of your subscription start date and multiply the result by the number of days in the month.
Example : if $25/month rate then …25 (monthly rate) / 31 (days in month) = 0.81 the daily rate.
If subscription starts on the 18th of a 31 day month then 31-18=13 days x 0.81 per day = $10.53 will be charged for the period.
We will charge your card on file automatically on the 20th of the month for the billing period of the next month 1st through end of month. If your first month was not pro-rated we will post the credit from the first partial month to the first full month’s billing.
If other fees apply they may be added to your 20th billing.
Your store services begin as soon as payment is processed and approval granted in our system.
We may contact you to complete the sign up process.
All recurring subscription fees will be automatically charged until cancelled. We do not charge cancellation fees but require 30 days notice to cancel to allow time for processing.
