Sellers may be charged for using some of America First Goods and Services LLC’s services. This Fees & Payments Policy explains your fees and taxes and how to pay them.
1. Types of Fees
Sellers may be required to pay the following types of fees. See the Taxes section below for further details.
When you make a sale through America-First.Org, you will be charged a transaction fee of 10% of the price you display for each listing plus the amount you charge for shipping and handling. The transaction fee will not apply to sales tax, unless you have included those charges in your listing price. If you offer optional personalization for an additional fee, the additional fee for personalization is added to the listing price you display and the total display price is subject to the same transaction fees described in this Section. See the Taxes section below for more information about whether you are required to include applicable taxes in your listing prices. Transaction fees are deducted as each sale occurs.
2. Fee Avoidance
Any action by a seller to avoid paying a fee is considered fee avoidance and is strictly prohibited by America First Goods and Services LLC. This includes, for example, encouraging buyers to purchase an item in your America-First.Org store through another venue. A transaction initiated on America-First.Org may not be completed off of America-First.Org. 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 America First Goods and Services LLC transaction fees, misrepresent the item’s location, or use another user’s account without permission.
3. Paying your America First Goods and Services LLC Fees
America First Goods and Services LLC will automatically deduct all transaction fees owed at the time each transaction occurs. If any other amounts are owed you are responsible for paying any amounts owed in full within 15 days of the date of your monthly statement, or the account will be considered past due, and America First Goods and Services LLC may charge your card on file or take other actions to collect funds as laid out in the Recoupment section of America First Goods and Services LLC’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, debit card, or PayPal.
Your statement will be made available at the beginning of each month, and will detail all sales and fees activity from the preceding month.
America First Goods and Services LLC may suspend your selling privileges at any time pending payment of your outstanding balance.
