For details on opening a Charmskool Marketplace Boutique (a ‘Boutique’) please click here. You may close your Boutique at any time.
You may not transfer or sell your Boutique account or User ID to another party. If you are registering as a business entity, you personally guarantee that you have the authority to bind the entity to these terms.
By setting up a Boutique you must:
You are responsible for all activity, liability and damage resulting from your failure to maintain password confidentiality!
Charmskool Marketplace reserves the right to refuse service to anyone, including restricting, suspending or terminating Boutiques that breach these terms or its Code of Conduct.
By listing an item for sale on your Boutique, you confirm that the item complies with the Code of Conduct and that you have the right to sell the item.
The price stated in each item listing description must be an accurate representation of the sale. Prices may not be higher than on your own website to cover our commission. Boutiques may charge reasonable shipping and handling fees to cover the costs for packaging and posting the items, however Boutiques may not charge excessive shipping fees or otherwise avoid fees.
All sales are final and binding. The Boutique is responsible for shipping up to the point of delivery or otherwise completing the transaction with the buyer within 30 days of the order being placed, unless the following exceptional circumstances apply:
You may issue promotional codes for your Boutique or include certain selected items in your Boutique for promotional purposes only. Promotional codes have no cash value and cannot be exchanged for money or credit.
Please note, Charmskool Marketplace does not support the drop shipping business model. If a Boutique is thought to be running their business as a drop shipper, then we may remove that Boutique from the Website without notice or prior warning.
Your refund policy is at your discretion, however it must follow UK distance and online selling regulations. This must be clearly stated in your shop profile. You must also take necessary steps to ensure your products are described and displayed clearly and accurately.
In the event a customer wishes to return a faulty item, we will expect you to:
In the event that a buyer requesting a refund does not receive a reply from you within 7 days after making a refund request, or if mutually you are unable to come to a solution within 30 days of the first communication regarding a refund is made, we can be asked to step in and mediate, however please note we are unable to override decisions made by card providers and payment gateways.
Further information as to the fees charged for Boutiques can be found here (the ‘Fees’). Unless otherwise stated, all Fees are quoted in UK Pounds (GBP). A fee of 22% (except on sale items which may be less and advised at the time) will be deducted by us, per sale. In the event of a refund or cancellation, the fees will be returned to you.
Charmskool Marketplace recommends that you research whether you are liable to declare such taxes to the relevant tax authorities, as a third party we do not take involvement with this.
Please note that, if your Boutique’s product count falls to zero, the Boutique will no longer show on the Website. Charmskool Marketplace may decrease the Fees charged at any time in its sole discretion, however we will give you at least 30 days' notice of any Fee increases. Charmskool Marketplace may, at its sole discretion, change some or all of Charmskool Marketplace's services or features at any time, however you will receive at least 30 days’ written notice of any material changes to the features, if any such changes require a significant adjustment to the way you use Charmskool Marketplace.
If Charmskool Marketplace suspends or terminates a listing or your account, if you close your account for any reason, all outstanding orders need to be fulfilled and Charmskool Marketplace may also apply penalties such as the suspension of privileges, interest and/or legal action.
