Vendor Participation Agreement

Welcome to site (the “Site”) and our selling services (the “Services”). Any person who wants to access the Site and use the Services to sell items must accept the terms and conditions of this Participation Agreement without change. By registering for and using the services, you agree to be bound by all terms and conditions of this participation agreement, and all policies and guidelines of the site are incorporated by reference.

DushiMart (“,” “we,” “us,” and “our”) reserves the right to change any of the terms and conditions contained in this Participation Agreement or any policies or guidelines governing the Site or Services, at any time and at its sole discretion. Any changes will be effective upon posting of the revisions on the Site. All notice of changes to this Participation Agreement will be posted on the Site for thirty (30) days. You are responsible for reviewing the notice and any applicable changes. Changes to referenced policies and guidelines may be posted without notice to you. Your continued use of this site and the services following DushiMarts posting of any changes will constitute your acceptance of such changes or modifications. If you do not agree to any changes to this participation agreement, do not continue to use the services or this site.

  1. Eligibility. Use of the Site and Services is limited to parties that lawfully can enter into and form contracts under applicable law. For example, minors are not allowed to use the Services. To register, you must provide your real name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and valid credit card information. You represent and warrant that: (a) if you are a business, you are duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the country in which your business is registered and that you are registering for the Services within such country; (b) you have all requisite right, power and authority to enter into this Participation Agreement and perform your obligations hereunder; and (c) any information provided or made available by you or your affiliates to DushiMart is at all times accurate and complete.
  2. Sellers participation fees. Participation is by 30 days membership fees. By default, DushiMart does not charge vendors any commission on their sales. Membership fees must be paid prior to the end of each term in order to guarantee the continuation of services provided by DushiMart.
  3. DushiMart’s Role. DushiMart provides a platform for third-party sellers (“Sellers”) and buyers (“Buyers”) to negotiate and complete transactions. DushiMart is not involved in the actual transaction between Sellers and Buyers As a Seller, you may list any item on the Site unless it is a prohibited item as defined in the Product Listing Policy or otherwise prohibited by law. Without limitation, you may not list any item or link or post any related material that (a) infringes any third-party intellectual property rights (including copyright, trademark, patent, and trade secrets) or other proprietary rights (including rights of publicity or privacy); (b) constitutes libel or slander or is otherwise defamatory; or (c) is counterfeited, illegal, stolen, or fraudulent. It is up to the Seller to accurately describe the item for sale. As a Seller, you use the Site and the Services at your own risk.
  4. Payment processing. As of this writing, payment for sales/order transactions are not processed online by DushiMart, although plans exist to do so in the near future. Customers can pay the sellers directly through bank transfer or direct payment when they pick up their order or when the order is delivered to them, depending on the option chosen at the time the order was placed. Sellers can make their payments to DushiMart by bank transfer.
  5. Seller to Buyer Communication. All communication related to the sales process takes place between Buyers and Sellers. DushiMart facilitates this process in several ways. Buyers and Sellers will resolve any dispute directly among themselves.
  6. Seller Verification. DushiMart allows sellers to verify themselves by uploading a copy of an official document (Passport, government issued ID, Chamber of Commerce document). Although this is not required, it is advisable because it increases buyer trust. All verified Sellers are identified by a “verified seller” badge that is visible throughout the site. This substantially increases the vendors success because it helps to install trust in the customer.
  7. DushiMart Reservation of Rights. DushiMart retains the right to determine the content, appearance, design, functionality and all other aspects of the Site (including the right to re-design, modify, remove and alter the content, appearance, design, functionality, and other aspects of the Site and the Service and any element, aspect, or feature thereof, from time to time), and to delay or suspend product listings or any other content, or to refuse to list, or to de-list, or to require Seller not to list, any or all products at our sole discretion.
  8. Your Obligation. By entering into this Participation Agreement, you agree to complete the transaction as described by this Participation Agreement. You acknowledge that by not fulfilling these obligations, your action, or inaction may be legally actionable.
  9. Seller Taxes. You agree that it is the Seller’s responsibility to determine whether Seller Taxes apply to the transactions. You are responsible to collect, report, and remit the correct Seller Taxes to the appropriate tax authority. DushiMart is not obligated to determine whether Seller Taxes apply and is not responsible to collect, report, or remit any sales, use, or similar taxes arising from any transaction. “Seller Taxes” are taxes pertaining to the sales of goods and services, incurred or required to be collected or paid for any reason in connection with these transactions.

If your password is compromised, you must change your password.
