Fees for our services are described here.

iCraftGifts.com is a Venue

iCraftGifts.com is not a retailer. Instead, iCraftGifts.com acts as a venue to allow an individual who complies with iCraftGifts.com's Terms and Conditions to showcase, sell, and buy certain art, craft or fashion items, within a fixed price format. iCraftGifts.com is not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result, iCraftGifts.com has no control over the quality, safety or legality of the items advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to pay for items. iCraftGifts.com cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction. Consequently, iCraftGifts.com does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer.

Identity Verification

iCraftGifts.com uses many techniques to verify the accuracy of the information iCraftGifts.com's users provide to iCraftGifts.com when they register on iCraftGifts.com. However, because user verification on the Internet is difficult, iCraftGifts.com cannot and does not confirm each user's purported identity. Thus, iCraftGifts.com has established a user-initiated feedback system to help you evaluate with whom you are dealing. iCraftGifts.com also encourages you to communicate directly with potential transaction partners through the tools available on iCraftGifts.com. You may also wish to consider using a third party escrow service or services that provide additional user verification.

Release

Because iCraftGifts.com is a venue, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you release iCraftGifts.com (and iCraftGifts.com's officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

Information Control

iCraftGifts.com does not control the information provided by other users that is made available through our system. You may find other users' information to be offensive, harmful, inaccurate, or deceptive. Please use caution, common sense, and practice safe trading when using iCraftGifts.com. Please note that there are also risks of dealing with underage persons or people acting under false pretense. Additionally, there may also be risks dealing with international trade and foreign nationals. By using iCraftGifts.com, you agree to accept such risks and that iCraftGifts.com (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) is not responsible for any and all acts or omissions of users on iCraftGifts.com

Buying

A buyer is obligated to complete the transaction of a purchase of an item on iCraftGifts.com in any shop within three (3) days. A buyer is obligated to immediately pay in full if using PayPal by clicking the "Buy Now" button during checkout. A buyer must submit payment in full within three (3) days if paying by personal check, certified check or money order. A buyer who pays by mail with a money order, certified check or personal check must send the seller an email to notify the seller that that the payment is in the mail, within three (3) days of the transaction.

A seller must abide by all of iCraftGifts.com's policies and the seller's own "Creator Exhibit" page policies and sell the item as described. Likewise, a seller must abide by the seller's own individual policies when dealing other issues, for example, issues of damage and returns.

Billing

Each iCraftGifts.com seller is responsible for paying the iCraftGifts.com fees incurred. At the beginning of the month each seller is emailed an invoice detailing the amount they will have to pay through PayPal. iCraftGifts.com doesn't process or keep sellers' credit card information on file.

Listing and Selling

Listing Description: You must be legally able to sell the item(s) you list for sale on the Site. You must describe your item and all terms of sale on the listing page of the Site. Your listings may only include text descriptions, graphics, pictures and other content relevant to the sale of that item. All listed items must be listed in an appropriate category. Each listing must accurately and completely describe the item/items for sale in that listing. If the "in stock" quantity is more than one, all items in that listing must be identical. Each unique item must have its own listing. 

All listings must adhere to the following Submission Criteria:

• you must be the designer, creator and/or producer of your art, craft or fashion
• ABSOLUTELY no product resellers are permitted
• iCraftGifts.com does not permit the selling of food, drinks, or any other consumables of any kind
• at a minimum, you must submit at least one product for your Creator Exhibit page
• you must submit at least one quality photo of your work
• you must only submit items that are not previously used
• your products must be available for sale or for custom orders/commissioned work
• your submitted work will be reviewed for quality, uniqueness, and presentation

iCraftGifts.com reserves the right to remove any item not in compliance with the above mentioned criteria. iCraftGifts.com maintains the right to manipulate product images and/or adjust product descriptions so as to remove inappropriate references to other websites, and irrelevant/inappropriate copy.

"Creator Exhibit" Policies: All sellers are urged to outline individual "Creator Exhibit" policies (in their Profile) for their iCraftGifts.com shop. These policies include, for example shipping, returns, payment and selling policies. Sellers must create these policies in good faith and must abide by such policies. iCraftGifts.com reserves the right to request that a seller modify an individual policy.

Linking to External Sites: You must not link your Creator Exhibit to any other online storefronts or use your Creator Exhibit for the sole purpose of driving traffic to another website. iCraftGifts.com reserves the right to remove any links not in compliance with our Terms & Conditions Policy.

Binding Sale: All sales are binding. If you, as a seller, receive a purchase request (order) you are obligated to complete the transaction with the buyer in a prompt manner, unless there is an exceptional circumstance, such as: (a) the buyer fails to meet the terms of your listing (such as payment method), or (b) you cannot authenticate the buyer's identity.

Termination: Without limiting any other remedies, iCraftGifts.com, without notice, may suspend or terminate your account if iCraftGifts.com suspects, in its sole discretion, that you (by information, investigation, conviction, settlement, insurance or escrow investigation, or otherwise) have violated any of iCraftGifts.com's policies set out in this Agreement, the Privacy Policy, or any other policy documents or community guidelines, or you have engaged in an improper or fraudulent activity in connection with iCraftGifts.com.

Manipulation: The price stated in each iCraftGifts.com Item Description must be an accurate representation of the sale. Manipulation refers to activities whereby the price no longer accurately represents the monetary value of the transaction. For example manipulative activities include, but are not limited to, intentionally stating one price in the Item Description but charging a higher price to the buyer, hacking into another's account and altering prices. Further, neither buyer nor seller may interfere with any other member's listings or transactions.

Access and Interference

iCraftGifts.com may contain robot exclusion headers. Much of the information on iCraftGifts.com is updated on a real time basis and is proprietary or is licensed to iCraftGifts.com by iCraftGifts.com's users or third parties.

Feedback

Integrity: You may not take any actions that may undermine the integrity of the feedback system. iCraftGifts.com may, without prior notice, limit the number of purchases and listings, which you may place on iCraftGifts.com based upon the level of your feedback. If you earn a low percentage feedback rating, your account will automatically be flagged for staff review, at which time your membership may be fully or partially suspended, and you may be unable to list or buy.

Export: You acknowledge that your feedback consists of comments left by other users and a composite feedback number compiled by iCraftGifts.com.

Import: iCraftGifts.com does not provide you with the technical ability to import feedback from other (non-iCraftGifts.com operated) websites to iCraftGifts.com because a composite number, without the corresponding feedback does not reflect your true online reputation within our community.
