What is Stripe?
- Stripe is the platform we have chosen to process credit cards. By accepting credit card payments, we are allowing more users to purchase products through this site. Stripe does take a commission. As of this writing, they take 2.9%+ 30 cents per successful credit charge. This charge is separate from the 7% commission we charge. If you want Stripe to process credit cards, you agree to the following:
- You will need to create and maintain your Stripe account.
- You will need to handle chargebacks and customer service issues. We will contact you to mediate the process.
- By using Stripe, you agree to pay the stripe fees, 2.9% +30 cents per successful credit charge.
- You agree and pay the 7% commission we charge, in addition to the Stripe fee
Can I opt for no credit cards?
- Yes, you can but we discourage it. Credit cards help increase sales because more buyers want to purchase items through credit cards for security, limiting fraud, etc. Yes, our credit card vendor, Stripe, takes commission, but it’s a small percentage and fee.
What are your shipping options?
- You are allowed to ship items the way you want. In your dashboard, you can specify your own shipping method and communicate that to sellers.
Can I ship internationally?
- As of now, we don’t allow international shipping for items. Shipping is within the US only.

- Yes, you can provide coupons for your store.
Can I post my business site on my items?
