1. Types of Fees
Sellers may be required to pay the following types of fees:
Listings are FREE at BodyGeek.com!
Sales made on BodyGeek.com are charged a transaction fee of 4.0% of the price displayed for the listing. If item is sold from within the US or Canada the transaction fee will not apply to the shipping cost, sales tax, Goods and Services Tax, or Harmonized Sales Tax, unless you have included those charges in your listing price. If you sell from anywhere other than the US and Canada, the transaction fee will apply to the listing price (which should include any applicable taxes), but will not apply to the shipping cost. See the Taxes section below for more information about whether or not you are required to include applicable taxes in your listing prices.
Payment Processing Fees
Online Sales. Payments for items sold on BodyGeek.com are charged a payment processing fee that depends on the location of the seller and buyer. This fee is assessed on the total amount of the sale, including tax and shipping. This fee is deducted from the transaction amount as the funds become available for deposit. Payment processing fees will be reflected in your payment account from whichever payment processor is used.
Any action by a seller to avoid paying a fee is considered fee avoidance and is strictly prohibited by BodyGeek. This includes, for example, encouraging buyers to purchase an item in your shop through another venue. The price stated in each listing description must be an accurate representation of the sale. Sellers may not charge excessive shipping fees. Sellers may not alter the item’s price after a sale for the purpose of avoiding BodyGeek transaction fees, misrepresent the item’s location, or use another user’s account without permission.
