  3. We reserve the right to assign you a criteria or withdraw a criteria assignment at any point. We try to be as fair as possible with our assignment but continue to learn as we go along. We also want to make it clear that you are not considered an unsustainable or unethical brand simply because you do not fulfill all of the Conclo Criteria.

If we decide that you do not fulfill at least two of these criteria, we reserve the right to restrict you from selling on Conclo or to remove you from selling on Conclo if you are already on the platform.

Furthermore, if you aim to develop your brand to fulfill more of the Conclo Criteria than are already assigned to you, we are happy to help you do so in any way that we can.



 

Product Promotions

 

Since Conclo is a social network in addition to a marketplace, the visibility of products on the platform will depend largely on user behaviour. Conclo’s algorithms are designed to promote products and brands that We expect to be popular among our users, determined by factors such as how many times an item has been saved or added to a wardrobe, the follower count and relative engagement of users that have saved or shared products.
 

What products are most readily visible to Users may also temporarily be influenced manually by Conclo if We see the need to promote certain products or brands in order for Conclo to function and grow.
 

By agreeing to these Terms you accept that some products and brands may be more visible or more promoted than others.


 

The Fees

 

As much as we wish we could promote all our amazing sustainable brands at no cost, we have to keep the business running. By agreeing to the Terms you agree that Conclo will deduct the following fees for the use of Conclo:

  1. When one or more of your products is sold via Conclo, We automatically deduct 8% of the total price of the product or products sold (referred to as “Commission”).The sales price equals the total price that a customer paid for your product or products, including VAT but not including the cost of shipping. Note that the Commission is subject to change at Conclo’s discretion. If we intend to change the Commission, we will notify you at least 30 days in advance of the changes coming into effect using the contact details that you provide Us with via the Portal. This is to give you a chance to terminate your account with Us, would you not be willing to accept the changes to our Commission

  2. We use Stripe, Inc. (https://stripe.com/en-gb-se) to handle all payment processing on Conclo. In effect, Stripe will deduct service and card fees from you when using Conclo. These may include an active account fee, card processing fees, and payment processing fees. Up-to-date fees can be found at https://stripe.com/gb/connect/pricing. Note that Stripe may deduct fees based on the entire payment amount transferred, including the cost of shipping. Stripe’s pricing may change across currencies and time. Although We aim to update you about any changes to Stripe’s pricing, you agree that Conclo is not liable for any changes to Stripe’s pricing or terms, any effects of these changes or for communicating these with you.



 

Payment Transfers

 

This section deals with the process of transferring payments between Conclo, Stripe and you in different scenarios.

  1. You make a sale. When a customer orders and pays for one or more of your products, Conclo and Stripe will automatically deduct the fees, as mentioned in the section labelled “The Fees”. The remaining amount will then be transferred to the bank account that you have provided Us with.

  2. A customer requests a return. If a customer requests a return, the customer is instructed to follow your stated returns procedure via the App. When you have received and accepted the return, we are either automatically informed via your API integration, or you inform us manually via the Portal. In the case of a valid return, We will refund the Commission we charged for the purchase. You are liable to refund the remaining price paid for the returned product.

  3. Conclo reserves the right to refrain from refunding the Commission charged for a returned product (in which case you are liable for refunding the total price of the returned product) in certain scenarios:

  1. Products are regularly returned for reasons that are clearly the fault of you, the brand. This includes but is not limited to situations in which the product sizing is inaccurate, product information or photos of a product do not accurately reflect the physical product, or the product received by the customer differs significantly from the product ordered.

  2. Products are regularly returned because they are defective at receipt.

  3. Refunds are regularly processed because stock levels are inaccurately reported to Conclo. The information presented to the User may for example suggest that a product is in stock when it is in fact sold out.
