(How money is handled)
In order to accept payments for sales, Vendor’s must have an appropriate account with Stripe, and their account must be connected to LeeFee Market’s Stripe account through ‘Stripe Connect’. Payments are made directly to Sellers from Buyers via Stripe Connect. The Seller’s account balance will be debited for the cost of any Stripe fees, refunds, and/or chargebacks. LeeFee Market reserves the right to issue refunds to buyers, debited from the seller’s account, on behalf of seller.
Vendors may have their own agreements with Stripe, especially with regard to transaction/processing fees. LeeFee Market is paid 8% of all sales made through leefeemarket.com via an “application fee”. This application fee is processed by Stripe through Stripe Connect.
RETURNS AND REFUNDS
Refunds may be initiated by the seller, by LeeFee Market, or by Stripe. If the seller initiates any refunds, they will do so via the LeeFee Market site when possible. In the event of a refund, LeeFee Market may return some or all of the associated application fee to the buyer. Sellers may define their own refund and return policies. Sellers may charge buyers a “re-stocking” fee, “transaction” fee, or any other refund-related fees when issuing a refund, only if they had defined and any such fees in their publicly viewable store policies at the time of the sale.
(You collect sales tax)
Sellers are solely responsible for collecting and remitting any required sales tax from sales made through LeeFee Market. Sales tax laws and rates can differ by state, county, city and municipality. Make sure you’re familiar with sales tax laws and rates where you live! If you would like LeeFee Market to automatically add shipping tax to purchases, and you don’t see a tax class on your product add page that matches your needs, let us know, and we’ll see what we can do about adding it for you.
