Policies

Terms

“Designer” and “Vendor” in the store and policies shall be used interchangeably and refer to users who join to sell products on the Showit Design Market.  “Market” and “Store” shall be used interchangeably.

 

Commissions

Commissions shall be calculated on the sale price of a purchase item after all discounts have been applied but before taxes are charged.
Design Partner Experts will receive a 10% higher commission rate if they are current on the design partner requirements of submitting one free in-app design per year.  If the design partner status changes from active to suspended then commission payouts for future purchases will drop to the standard “Designer” rate. Commission pay scales will be reviewed at the end of every month and changes apply starting the next month after you qualify for a new level.

Commission Pay Scale
# of Full Site Designs Sold Design Partner Design Partner Expert*
Platinum 300+ 75% 85%
Gold 150+ 70% 80%
Silver 50+ 65% 75%
Copper (0-49) 60% 70%

*Design Partner Experts with an active status will earn this rate as long as they maintain their status. Design Partner Experts who do not maintain their Expert status will revert to the standard “Design Partner” rate for future sales.

 

Qualifications to Sell

To become a designer that sells on the Showit Store you must meet the following requirements:

  • Be an active Design Partner, maintaining all active requirements.
  • Maintain an active Showit subscription.

If a designer’s subscription shall lapse all payments for commissions shall be put on hold until the designer re-subscribes and their product sales may be suspended during this time. If a designer decides to discontinue their Showit subscription they will need to contact our designer team to receive all final commissions and have their vendor account closed.

 

Pricing

Prices are set by the designer with a minimum price of $5 (or free).

An item’s price cannot be priced higher than it’s standard (non-sale) price in any other online market including the designer’s own store.

 

Market Sales (Opt-In)

Designers may “opt-in” each of their designs to participate in storewide sales up to the following levels:

  • Up to 30% off (7 days max)
  • Up to 50% off Flash Sale (24 hours max)

Designers may also request a sale discount period be set on their own products.

 

Display of Products

The display and order of site designs shall be determined by Showit and may be changed at any time.

 

License

The designer agrees to license the purchased designs for use inside of one (1) Showit account per purchase.

 

Commissions

Commissions shall be calculated on the sale price of a purchase item after all discounts have been applied but before taxes are charged.

 

Commission Payments

Commissions will be calculated at the end of each calendar month. Payments will be made if the current commission balance is higher than $50.  Unpaid credits will roll over to the next months until they meet the minimum payout threshold stated above. Payments will be made by the 15th of the following calendar month and all payments will be made via Bill.com (by check or electronic payment) or Paypal (International Users only).

 

Store Credits

Store credits are viewed as a form of payment and won’t affect any commission calculation.

 

Returns

Showit reserves the right to refund a customer within 30 days of purchase if it’s in the best interest of the customer, designer’s reputation, and Showit’s reputation. The purchased design would be deleted and disabled, and commissions generated by the sale would be revoked.

 

Quality Control

If it is determined that a design is not appropriately formatted for customer use the design may be temporarily removed from the store and the designer will be notified to make changes to resolve the issues or remove the design entirely.

 

Changes to Policy

Showit Inc. reserves the right to change the terms of these Store Policies for Designers without notice. You are responsible for reviewing these Store Policies for Designers prior to becoming a Vendor. Remaining a vendor after any changes to these policies acknowledges your agreement to the then current Store Policies for Designers.
