Terms of Membership
All people living in the United States of America are allowed to have ONE membership to Earth Vendors. Because of our Seller's Bonus Product (sellers are allowed to sell one product without having to pay any Earth Vendor's commission charges) we have put into place added checks and controls to assure the ONE membership policy remains intact. The Earth Vendor program automatically looks for duplicates of the following personal information: email address, Paypal email address, home address and phone number. Any data point that is shared with another person will require both parties to prove ownership of that information. Attempting to purposely falsify information, or to gain more than one membership will result in the person being band from the website.
Types of Products That Can be Sold
Every product must have at least 35% of the earth in its make up. There are eight product categories: Art, Health, Pottery, Jewelry, Gardening, Raw Stones, Concrete and Metals.
Linking to Other Websites
No outbound links can be placed within the selling page of a product. Inbound links can be placed on selling pages. Up to two outbound links can be added to an article the seller has written. Outbound links from articles must take the viewer to a web page that is relevant to the product being sold.
Sellers are liable for transaction fees arising out of all sales made using some or all Earth Vendors' Services. There is no fee for uploading products.
