1. Commissions and Fees
CPR charges a flat 25% commission on the value of each item sold through carnivorousplantresource.com. At time of sale, 25% will be deducted from the total amount before shipping fees and taxes. Here’s an example with simplified math:
James is selling a work of art for $100 which costs $10 to ship, and requires the collection of $10 for taxes. CPR will receive the full $120 (value of art + shipping + taxes) from the buyer, and pass along $95 of it to James. The full value of shipping, taxes, and 75% of the sale passes through to James. James is responsible for shipping the item and paying his taxes.
All products must be listed in USD, and all payouts will be made in USD via PayPal. This avoids immediate currency conversion fees upon receiving your money. Should you choose to convert the currency or withdraw it in a tender other than USD, PayPal or your payment processor will handle the conversion, and they may charge fees for doing so.
2. Fee Avoidance
Any action by a seller to avoid paying a fee is considered fee avoidance and is strictly prohibited by CPR. This includes, for example, encouraging buyers to purchase an item in your CPR 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 or taxes. Sellers may not alter the item’s price after a sale for the purpose of avoiding CPR fees or misrepresent the item’s location.
