    These terms and conditions are in addition to the standard Terms of Service of the Site. Pursuant to those terms, title and risk of loss for the items transfer to the recipient upon delivery to the common carrier in the United States.

    Please note that Merchants may have policies that differ from Sharizing’s Terms. For items you have purchased from a Merchant, please see the applicable Merchant's policies for any other terms and conditions that may apply to your purchase of such items.

    In connection with the Site, Sharizing may provide Sharizing members referral credits when members invite their friends to join Sharizing or registered members complete a purchase through a referral link from another member (collectively “Referral Credits”). Referral Credits may be awarded to the referrer when her friends join, as well as when her friends make their first purchases.

    Referral Credits are granted at our sole discretion. Referral Credits do not have a cash value, and you may only use Referral Credits in connection with a qualifying purchase on the Site or Applications. We reserve the right to revoke your Referral Credits if we determine that you have engaged in fraudulent referral activity or otherwise violated our Terms of Use, or if we terminate your membership. Referral credits expire 6 months after they are granted. Referral credits are not transferable or sellable, are not gift cards, and cannot be used to purchase Sharizing gift cards. Sharizing reserves the right at any time without notice to you to change the terms applicable to the Referral Credits, including expiration period and/or your ability to redeem existing Referral Credits.

    2. Limitations

    For products shipped internationally, please note that any manufacturer warranty may not be valid; manufacturer service options may not be available; product manuals, instructions and safety warnings may not be in destination country languages; the products (and accompanying materials) may not be designed in accordance with destination country standards, specifications, and labeling requirements; and the products may not conform to destination country voltage and other electrical standards (requiring use of an adapter or converter if appropriate). You are responsible for assuring that the product can be lawfully imported to the destination country. When ordering from the Site or Applications, the recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country.

    3. Risk of Loss

Where an item is offered for sale by one of our Merchants, the list price or suggested price may be provided by the Merchant.

    Product specifications, prices and quantity are subject to change. With respect to items sold by Sharizing, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced. If the correct price of an item sold by Sharizing is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. Other merchants may follow different policies in the event of a mispriced item. From time to time, we may offer coupon codes or rebates as a form of purchase. All purchases paid with a coupon code or rebate are final sale and may not be returned. Terms of coupon codes and rebates are subject to change in the sole discretion of Sharizing and may be altered without notice.

    Products offered for sale on the Site or Applications may be limited to stock and while supplies last. Product offerings are available for end users only. Not available to distributors, dealers or resellers, as determined by Sharizing.

Promptly after shipment of a customer's order (or any portion of the customer's order), you will accurately inform us that the order has been shipped (and, in the case of a customer order that is shipped in more than one shipment, accurately inform us which portion of the order has been shipped), using our standard functionality for communicating such information when we make that functionality available to you. If you fail to provide confirmation of shipment within the time frame specified by us (e.g., 7 days after the date an order was placed), we may in our sole discretion cancel (and/or direct you to stop and/or cancel) any such transaction, and you will stop and/or cancel any such transaction upon such request by us.

    4) Sharizing’s Role

    Sharizing provides a platform for Sellers and buyers ("Buyers") to complete transactions. Sharizing is not involved in the actual transaction between Sellers and Buyers and is not the agent of Sellers except for the limited purpose of processing payments and has no agency authority for any other purpose, and Sharizing is not the agent of Buyers for any purpose. As a Seller, you may list any item on the Site unless it is a prohibited item as defined in the Site’s Terms of Service, this Merchant Agreement or otherwise prohibited by law. Without limitation, you may not list any item or link or post any related material that (a) infringes any third-party intellectual property rights (including copyright, trademark, patent, and trade secrets) or other proprietary rights (including rights of publicity or privacy); (b) constitutes libel or slander or is otherwise defamatory; or (c) is counterfeited, illegal, stolen, or fraudulent. It is up to the Seller to accurately describe the item for sale. As a Seller, you use the Site and the Services at your own risk.

    As the Seller, you acknowledge that, by only providing you with the ability to publish, sell and distribute your own or third party products, services or content, the Services act only as passive conduits for the distribution and/or publishing of such products. Sharizing has no obligation to you or any third party, and undertakes no responsibility, to review your sale, the products listed therein or any other content to determine whether any such product, service or content may incur liability to third parties. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, if Sharizing believes in its discretion that your sale or any products, services, content or other materials in the listing or on Sharizing’s servers may create liability for Sharizing or harm other users of the Services, then you agree that Sharizing may take any actions with respect to the content or materials or listing that Sharizing believes are prudent or necessary to minimize or eliminate our potential liability or to protect other users of our Services.

    5) Merchant Responsibilities

    Seller is solely responsible for creating, managing, editing, reviewing, deleting and otherwise controlling the content of the sale posted to the Site, including all descriptions of Merchandise and disclosure and warnings of product materials that are required to be disclosed by any applicable domestic and international laws, statutes, ordinances and/or regulations where the Merchandise is offered for sale. If you have reason to believe that your sale is in violation of any law or the rights of any third party, you will promptly send notices to us using the functionality for contacting Sharizing as provided on the Site. Notwithstanding anything contained in the foregoing, if you breach any of the terms of this Merchant Agreement, Sharizing is entitled to suspend or terminate your sale(s) and/or any access to information or data related to your merchant account.

    6) Service License

    Seller acknowledges and agrees that, as between you and Sharizing, all Services and Applications provided by Sharizing, and all worldwide intellectual property rights therein, are the exclusive property of Sharizing. All rights not expressly granted to you in this Agreement are reserved by Sharizing.

    Seller acknowledges that the Services and Applications and their structure, organization, and source code constitute valuable intellectual property of Sharizing. Accordingly, you will not, either directly or through a third party, (a) modify, adapt, alter, translate, or create derivative works from the Site, Applications or Services; or (b) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or otherwise attempt to derive the source code for the Site, Applications or Services.

    7) Merchant Registration

    IN ORDER TO SELL MERCHANDISE ON THE SITE, YOU MUST REGISTER YOUR MERCHANT INFORMATION ON THE SITE. You must provide us true and accurate information when registering and must maintain and update that information as applicable. Seller will not impersonate any person or use a name he or she is not legally authorized to use. Seller authorizes us to verify his or her information (including any updated information), to obtain credit reports about Seller in order to approve Seller for use of the Site and to obtain an initial credit authorization from Seller's bank account at time of registration.

    a. Sharizing and any third party agents designed by Sharizing facilitate the purchase of Merchandise listed on the Site. A Buyer's authorized credit card or other form of payment ("Payment Transaction") is credited to a registered Seller's account, and funds are periodically transferred to the Seller's designated checking account ("Seller's Account"). The Buyer may authorize a Payment Transaction with any major credit card accepted by Sharizing or a coupon code, referral credit or gift card(s) issued by Sharizing or any combination thereof. Receipt of Payment Transaction funds by us on a Seller's behalf will be deemed receipt of funds by Seller and will satisfy the obligations owed to Seller by the Buyer in the amount of the applicable Payment Transaction. Upon completion of a Payment Transaction a receipt indicating that payment has been made will be furnished to the Buyer. Our obligation to remit funds collected by us on your behalf will be limited to funds that we have actually received and that are not subject to chargeback or reversal. Sharizing and any third party agents designed by Sharizing help facilitate Payment Transactions and are not the purchaser of the Seller's goods. Seller will resolve any dispute directly with Buyer or with the assistance of Sharizing.

    b. Payment Transactions can be credited only to bank checking accounts in the United States or any other country shown as supported by our standard functionality and enabled for your account (which functionality may be modified or discontinued by us at any time without notice). Sellers waive any rights with respect to payment when shipping to an address other than that provided by the Buyer.

    c. The Site is generally available seven (7) days per week, twenty-four (24) hours per day, except for scheduled downtime due to system maintenance. We can initiate Payment Transaction credits to Seller's Account only on a Business Day when the automated clearinghouses are open for business. For purposes of this Merchant Agreement, a Business Day is a Monday through Friday, excluding United States federal banking holidays. We will inform you of each completed transaction using our standard procedures.

    d. You may provide refunds or adjustments to Buyers for their purchases through the Site using functionality we enable for your account. This functionality may be modified or discontinued by us at any time without notice and is subject the terms of this Merchant Agreement. You only use functionality provided by the Site to create invoices for sales processed through the Site or Applications.

    e. We will initiate a transfer to the Seller on a rolling basis for the total amount of Payment Transactions received from Buyer's authorized credit card transactions, less any refunds, adjustments, or other amounts paid to Buyers in connection with purchases as well as applicable Seller fees. In the event that the Buyer submits payment, or partial payment, to the Seller via Sharizing issued gift card, coupon code or user earned referral credit, Sharizing shall be responsible for transferring the value of such portion of the Buyer’s transaction to the Seller upon deposit of payment.

    f. Transfers to the Seller's Account will generally be credited within five Business Days of the date we initiate the transfer.

    g. As a security measure, we may, but are not required to, impose transaction limits on some or all Buyers and Sellers relating to the value of any transaction, disbursement, or adjustment, the cumulative value of all transactions, disbursements, or adjustments during a period of time, or the number of transactions per day or other period of time. We will not be liable to Seller: (i) if we do not proceed with a transaction, disbursement, or adjustment that would exceed any limit established by us for a security reason, or (ii) if we permit a Buyer to withdraw from a transaction because the Site or Applications are unavailable following the commencement of a transaction.

    h. If we reasonably conclude based on information available to us that Seller's actions and/or performance in connection with the Services may result in Buyer disputes, chargebacks or other claims, then we may, in our sole discretion, delay initiating any remittances and withhold any payments to be made or that are otherwise due to you in connection with the Services or this Merchant Agreement for the shorter of: (a) a period of 90 days following the initial date of suspension; or (b) completion of any investigation(s) regarding any Seller actions and/or performance in connection with this Merchant Agreement. We will not be liable to Seller if we act in accordance with the provisions of this Section.

    i. All notices will be sent by e-mail or will be posted on the Site. We will send notices to Seller at the e-mail address maintained in Sharizing’s records for Seller. Seller will monitor his or her e-mail messages frequently to ensure awareness of any notices sent by us. Seller will send notices to us using the functionality for contacting Sharizing as provided on the Site.

    j. There is no fee for registering to sell on the Site or Applications. The fees for sales processed via the Site or Applications are deducted from any final payments transferred to Sellers. We may, in our sole discretion, waive, reduce, or reverse charges or fees for a specific transaction.

    k. We may refuse service to anyone for any reason. We may earn interest or other compensation from the balances in our bank accounts that result from the timing difference between our being paid by Buyer and our bank account being debited to pay Payment Transaction credits to Seller. Seller will bear all risk of credit card fraud fraud (i.e. fraudulent purchase arising from the theft and unauthorized use of a third party's credit card information) or loss in connection with Payment Transactions. We will not bear the risk of credit card fraud in connection with any of Seller's products that are not fulfilled strictly in accordance with the order information and shipping information that we provide you. We reserve the right to seek reimbursement from Seller if we, in our sole discretion, decide to reimburse Buyer, provide a refund to Buyer if Seller cannot promptly deliver the goods, discover erroneous or duplicate transactions, or receive a chargeback from Buyer's credit card issuer for the amount of Buyer's purchase from Seller. We may obtain reimbursement of any amounts owed by Seller to Sharizing by deducting from future payments owed to Seller, reversing any credits to Seller's Account, or seeking such reimbursement from Seller by any other lawful means. You authorize us to use any or all of the foregoing methods to seek reimbursement, including the debiting of your checking account.

    l. Seller may terminate his or her participation in the Site or Applications at any time by informing us using the standard method then-currently provided by Sharizing for such termination, and we may terminate Seller's participation in the Site or Applications at any time without notice to Seller. Upon termination, Seller must pay us whatever fees were incurred prior to the effective date of the termination. Also upon termination, any pending transactions will be canceled.

    m. We reserve the right, upon termination, to set off against any payments to be made to Seller, an amount determined by us to be adequate to cover chargebacks, refunds, adjustments or other amounts paid to Buyers in connection with purchases from Seller's Account for a prospective three-month period. At the end of such three-month period following termination, we will disburse to Seller any amount not used to offset chargebacks, refunds, adjustments, or such other amounts paid to Buyers, or seek reimbursement from Seller via any of the means authorized in Section 5.k. above for any additional amount required to offset chargebacks, refunds, adjustments, or other amounts paid to Buyers, as applicable.

    8) Reservation of Rights

    Sharizing retains the right to determine the content, appearance, design, functionality and all other aspects of the Site and the Services (including the right to re-design, modify, remove and alter the content, appearance, design, functionality, and other aspects of the Site, Application and the Service and any element, aspect, portion or feature thereof, from time to time), and to delay or suspend listing of, or to refuse to list, or to de-list, or to require Seller not to list, any or all products in our sole discretion. We may in our sole discretion withhold for investigation, refuse to process, restrict shipping destinations for, stop and/or cancel any of your transactions. You will stop and/or cancel orders of your products if we ask you to do so (provided that if you have transferred your products to the applicable carrier or shipper, you will use commercially reasonable efforts to stop and/or cancel delivery by such carrier or shipper). You will refund any customer (in accordance with this Merchant Agreement) that has been charged for an order that we stop or cancel.

    9) Employee Participation

    Employees of Sharizing and its affiliates are permitted to participate in their personal capacity in the transactions conducted through the Site and Applications (unless they have confidential information about a particular item). Employees of Sharizing and its affiliates, when participating in any transaction in their personal capacity, are subject to this Merchant Agreement and the same procedures and guidelines contained in Sharizing’s Terms of Service as any Buyer or Seller on this Site.

    10) Seller Transactions

    1. a.Fees and Pricing. For each purchase completed through the Site or Applications, Sharizing collects the amount paid by the Buyer, including the item price, shipping or other charges and any applicable taxes.

    2. b.Pricing. You may list items at any price you feel is fair.

    Payment Gateway and Sharizing provide the e-commerce tools to enable you to use the Service. We reserve the right to require you to install or update any and all software updates to continue using the Service. The foregoing offering is separate and distinct from the Sharizing e-commerce and other services that are provided by Sharizing Inc. under separate terms and conditions, which are independent of this Agreement (such services being a "Sharizing User Account" and such agreement being the "Terms of Merchant Sale" available at: https://Sharizing.com/about#terms-merchant).

You agree you are not entitled to any interest or other compensation associated with the settlement funds held in the deposit account pending settlement to your designated bank settlement account, that you have no right to direct that deposit account, and that you may not assign any interest or grant any security interest or lien in the settlement funds or the deposit account. From time to time, we may make available to you information in your Merchant Account regarding anticipated settlement amounts that we have received on your behalf from the Payment Networks and are being held by us pending settlement. The settlement information reflected in the Merchant Account is for reporting and informational purposes only, and does not create any ownership or other rights in settlement funds, which are provisional credits only, until such funds are credited to your designated bank settlement account. Your authorizations set forth herein will remain in full force and effect until your Merchant Account is closed or terminated.

    Processing Card Transactions and Receiving Your Funds

    1. Processing Card Transactions

    You agree that you will honor all eligible payments presented for payment by your customers for your goods and services in accordance with the Payment Network rules, this Agreement and any operating guides that we may provide you from time to time. You agree that you will obtain an authorization from the Payment Network(s) for each card transaction, as required under the Payment Network rules. You acknowledge that the existence of an affirmative authorization from us or the Payment Networks does not mean that a particular card transaction will not be subject to Chargeback, Reversal or Claim at a later date.

    You will not impose any fee or surcharge on a customer that seeks to use an eligible payment card.  You will use our Service provide a receipt to the customer at the conclusion of the purchase transaction that includes all information required under Payment Network rules and applicable law.

    You will display all Payment Network marks in accordance with the rules and procedures of the Payment Networks, and will use such marks only to indicate that you accept their payments for payment.

    2. Payouts and Transaction History

    We will pay out funds settling from the Payment Networks to your designated bank settlement account in the amounts actually received (less our Fees as defined below) for card transactions submitted to our Service. The payouts will be made to the bank account ("Bank Account") you provide for your Merchant Account. The Bank Account must be an account located at a bank in the United States and held in the name of the business. You are responsible for the accuracy and correctness of information regarding your Bank Account. Funds for any given transaction will not be transferred to your Bank Account until the transaction is deemed complete. Transactions will be deemed complete when we have received funds settling from the Payment Networks and when we or our processing financial institutions have accepted such funds. The actual timing of the transfers to your Bank Account of the settling funds will be subject to the Payout Schedule as defined below.

    Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge that all credits for funds provided to you are provisional and subject to reversal including without limitation if there are adjustments for inaccuracies and errors (including rejects) and Chargebacks, Reversals or Claims in accordance with this Agreement and the Card Network payment rules, whether or not a transaction is charged back by the issuer of the Card or the Cardholder. Accordingly, you authorize us to initiate reversal or adjustment (debit or credit) entries to the Bank Account and to initiate or suspend such entries in accordance with this Agreement as may be necessary to grant or reverse provisional credit for any transaction.

    After each payout of card settlement funds to your Bank Account, we will update information in your Merchant Account to reflect settlement. Information regarding your card transactions processed and settled with the Services ("Transaction History") will be available to you when you login to our website using your Merchant Account. Except as required by law, you are solely responsible for compiling and retaining permanent records of all transactions and other data associated with your Merchant Account, your Transaction History and your use of the Service.

    3. Payout Schedule

    Payout schedule refers to the time it takes for us to initiate a transfer to your Bank Account of settlement funds arising from card transactions processed through the Service ("Payout Schedule"). Once your bank account information has been reviewed, the Payment Gateway, on behalf of Sharizing, or Sharizing itself will initiate transfer of settlement funds (net Fees, chargebacks, and other funds owed to us for any reason) in accordance with the Payout Schedule. The settlement funds should normally be credited to your Bank Account within 1-2 days of us initiating the payout. We are not responsible for any action taken by the institution holding your Bank Account that may result in some or all of the funds not being credited to your Bank Account or not being made available to you in your Bank Account. You can contact Sharizing to inquire about changing the timing of your Payout Schedule. Upon submitting a request, you will be informed of the process and requirements for Sharizing to review your Payout Schedule.

    Payment Gateway, on behalf of Sharizing, and Sharizing reserve the right to change the Payout Schedule or suspend payouts to your Bank Account should we determine it is necessary due to pending disputes, excessive or anticipated excessive Chargebacks or refunds, or other suspicious activity associated with your use of the Service or if required by law or court order.

    4. Reconciliations and Errors

    Your Transaction History will be available to you when you login to our website using your Merchant Account. Except as required by law, you are solely responsible for reconciling your Transaction History with your actual card payment transactions. You agree to notify us of any discrepancies arising from such reconciliation and verification. We will investigate any reported discrepancies and attempt to rectify any errors that you or we discover. In the event you are owed money as a result of the discrepancy, we will transfer funds to your Bank Account in the next scheduled payout. Your failure to notify us of an error or discrepancy in your Transaction History within sixty (60) days of when it first appears on your Transaction History will be deemed a waiver of any right to amounts owed to you in connection with any such error or discrepancy in processing your card payments.

    If you submit or cause us to process transactions erroneously, you agree to contact us immediately. We will investigate any reported errors and attempt to rectify any errors that you or we discover by crediting or debiting your Merchant Account as appropriate. Sharizing will only correct transactions that you process incorrectly if and when you notify us of such an error. Your failure to notify us of a processing error within thirty (30) days of when it first appears on your electronic transaction history will be deemed a waiver of any right to amounts owed to you.

    5. Refunds and Returns

    By accepting these terms of service, you agree to submit any and all refunds and adjustments for returns of your products and services through the Service to the Cardholder's card in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and Payment Network Rules. Payment Network Rules require that you will (i) maintain a fair return, cancellation or adjustment policy; (ii) disclose your return or cancellation policy to customers at the time of purchase, (iii) not give cash refunds to a customer in connection with a Card sale, unless required by law, and (iv) not accept cash or any other item of value for preparing a Card sale refund.

    Full refunds must be for the exact dollar amount of the original transaction including tax, handling charges, and other charges. The refund amount may not exceed the original sale amount except by an amount equal to any reimbursements to customer for postage costs incurred for product returns. Refunds processed though the Service must be submitted within sixty (60) days of the original transaction but in all cases, within three (3) days of approving the Cardholder refund.

    For processed refunds, we, will deduct the refund amount (including any applicable Fees) from (i) settlement funds owed to you from processing of other card transactions, or (ii) funds in any Reserve Account (as defined below). If these funds are not sufficient, you authorize us, to initiate an ACH debit entry to your Bank Account in the amount necessary to complete the refund transaction to the Cardholder's card. In the event we cannot access your Bank Account by means of ACH debit entry, you agree to pay all funds owed to us upon demand. You are solely responsible for accepting and processing returns of your products and services; we have no responsibility or obligation for processing such returns.

    6. Chargebacks

    A Chargeback (defined below in Section D(6)) is typically caused when a customer disputes a charge that appears on their bill. A Chargeback may result in the reversal of a transaction, with the amount charged back to you. You can be assessed Chargebacks for: (i) customer disputes, (ii) unauthorized or improperly authorized transactions, or (iii) transactions that do not comply with Payment Network Rules or the terms of this Agreement or are allegedly unlawful or suspicious, or (iv) any reversals for any reason by the Network, our processor or acquiring bank, or the Cardholder's card issuing financial institution.

    When a Chargeback is issued, you are immediately liable to Sharizing for the full amount of payment of the Chargeback plus any associated Fees, fines, expenses or penalties (including those assessed by the Payment Networks or our payment processors). You agree that we may recover these amounts by means of ACH debit of your Bank Account associated with your Merchant Account, debiting your Reserve Account, or setting off any amounts owed to you by us. If we are unable to recover funds related to a Chargeback for which you are liable, you will pay us the full amount of the Chargeback immediately upon demand. You agree to pay all costs and expenses, including without limitation attorneys' fees and other legal expenses, incurred by or on behalf of us in connection with the collection of any unpaid Chargebacks unpaid by you.

    Further, if we reasonably believe that a Chargeback is likely with respect to any transaction, we may withhold the amount of the potential Chargeback from payments otherwise due to you under this Agreement until such time that: (a) a Chargeback is assessed due to a customer's complaint, in which case we will retain the funds; (b) the period of time under applicable law or regulation by which the customer may dispute that the transaction has expired; or (c) we determine that a Chargeback on the transaction will not occur.

    7. Contesting your Chargebacks

    You or Sharizing may elect to contest Chargebacks assessed to your account. Sharizing may provide you with assistance including notifications and software to help contest your Chargebacks. We do not assume any liability for our role or assistance in contesting Chargebacks.

    You agree to provide us with the necessary information, in a timely manner and at your expense, to investigate or help resolve any Chargeback. You also grant us permission to share records or other information required with the Cardholder, the Cardholder's financial institution, and your financial institution to help resolve any disputes. You acknowledge that your failure to provide us with complete and accurate information in a timely manner may result in an irreversible Chargeback being assessed.

    If the Cardholder's issuing bank or the Payment Network does not resolve a dispute in your favor, we may recover the Chargeback amount and any associated fees from you as described in this Agreement.

    We reserve the right, upon notice to you, to charge a fee for mediating or investigating Chargeback disputes.

    8. Excessive Chargebacks

    At any point, Sharizing, Payment Gateway, the Payment Networks, or our payment processor(s) may determine that you are incurring excessive Chargebacks. Excessive Chargebacks may result in additional fees, penalties, or fines. Excessive Chargebacks may also result in additional controls and restrictions to your use of the Service, including without limitation, (i) changes to the terms of your Reserve Account, (ii) increases to your applicable Fees, (iii) delays in your Payout Schedule, or (iv) possible suspension or termination of your Merchant Account and the Service. The Networks may also place additional controls or restrictions as part of their own monitoring programs for merchants with excessive Chargebacks.

    9. Sharizing Fees

    You agree to pay the Fees ("Fees") assessed by us to you for providing the payment services described in this Agreement. These fees will be calculated pursuant to a Fee Schedule incorporated into this Agreement.

    We reserve the right to revise our Fees at any time, subject to a thirty (30) day notice period to you.

    You acknowledge that you are also responsible for any penalties or fines imposed on us or directly on you by any Payment Network or financial institution as a result of your activities.

    10.Our Collection Rights

    To the extent permitted by law, we may collect any obligations you owe us under this Agreement by deducting the corresponding amounts from the Reserve Account or from funds payable to you arising from the settlement of card transactions. Fees will be assessed at the time a transaction is processed and will be first deducted from the funds received for such transactions. If the settlement amounts or Reserve Account are not sufficient to meet your obligations to us, we may charge or debit the bank account or credit card registered in your Merchant Account for any amounts owed to us. Your failure to fully pay amounts that you owe us on demand will be a breach of this Agreement. You will be liable for our costs associated with collection in addition to the amount owed, including without limitation attorneys' fees and expenses, costs of any arbitration or court proceeding, collection agency fees, and any applicable interest.

    Additionally, we may require a personal guaranty from a principal of a business for funds owed under this Agreement. If we require a personal guarantee we will specifically inform you in advance.

    In addition to the amount due, delinquent accounts may be charged with fees that are incidental to the collection of delinquent accounts and chargebacks including, but not limited to, collection fees and convenience fees and other third parties charges.

    You hereby explicitly agree that all communication in relation to delinquent accounts will be made by electronic mail or by phone, as provided to Sharizing by you. Such communication may be made by Sharizing or by anyone on its behalf, including but not limited to a third party collection agent.

    11.Reserves

    Funds held in reserves are amounts of money set aside to cover Chargebacks, refunds, Fees, or other payment obligations under this agreement (a "Reserve Account"). We, in our discretion, will set the terms of your Reserve Account and notify you of such terms, which may require that a certain amount (including the full amount) of the funds received for your transaction is held for a period of time or that additional amounts are held in the Reserve Account. We, in our discretion, may elect to change the terms of the Reserve Account at any time for any reason based on your payment processing history or as requested by our payment processors.

    We may require you to fund the Reserve Account by means of: (i) any funds payouts made or due to you for card transactions submitted to the Service, or, or (ii) amounts available in your Bank Account by means of ACH debit to that Bank Account, or (iv) other sources of funds associated with your Merchant Account, including credit card; or (iv) requesting that you provide funds to us for deposit to the Reserve Account.

    You agree that you are not entitled to any interest or other compensation associated with the funds held in the Reserve Account, that you have no right to direct that account, that you have no legal interest in those funds or that account and that you may not assign any interest in those funds or that account.

    12.Security Interest

    You grant us a lien and security interest in the Reserve Account, all Card transactions (including future Card transactions), any rights to receive credits or payments under this Agreement, and all deposits and other property of yours possessed or maintained by us on your behalf. You will execute, deliver, and pay the fees for any documents we request to create, perfect, maintain and enforce this security interest.

    Subdomain Hosting

    1. Subdomain Web Hosting

    As part of the Services, as of the date of your use and registration of a Merchant Account, Sharizing will assign you a subdomain (eg.“www.YourMerchantStoreName.Sharizing.com) hosted on Sharizing’s primary domain (“Merchant Site”). Each Merchant account will be able to select a unique Merchant Site name, provided that the name is previously registered to another Merchant Account. By registering a subdomain, you recognize that the subdomain is the property of Sharizing and is non-transferrable upon termination of Service under this Agreement. Each Merchant Site is placed within one or more Servers (defined below) and resources are shared between many customers on the same servers; however, each Merchant Site is given a unique subdomain address.

As part of its process, Sharizing will bill a monthly inventory management fee prior to the month for which the fees are to apply.

    3. Price Increases

    If Sharizing is asked to perform Fulfillment Services for products which do not materially conform to the pricing assumptions and fees identified at the time of registration of a Merchant Account, Sharizing may, in its sole discretion, increase the per unit price for the Fulfillment Services for certain Services or individual inventory pieces.

    4. Your Responsibilities

    You shall deliver all inventory offered for sale through your Merchant Account (“Inventory”) to Sharizing’s designated 3PL warehouse (“Fulfillment Center”) in order to enable Sharizing to perform the Fulfillment Services.

    At the time of delivery of Inventory, you shall provide Sharizing with a summary, aggregated cost list for all Products (a "Product Cost List"). The Product Cost List will be confidential. This information will be used for the purposes of inventory valuation in connection with the determination of the Shrinkage Allowance (defined below).

    You shall ensure that all Inventory, when delivered to the Fulfillment Center, have proper labeling for identification and storage.

    Shrinkage is an uncorrectable negative difference between physical Inventory and Sharizing’s book inventory of stock. If inventory accuracy has been maintained between 99.5% and 99.8%, the cost of any inventory discrepancy shall be shared equally by both parties. If the inventory accuracy is less than 99.5%, Sharizing shall reimburse Merchant, at Merchant’s, out-of-pocket cost (not to exceed $50 per item), for the amount of the inventory adjustment, which may be provided as a credit toward future services. Inventory accuracy shall be defined as inventory overages minus inventory shortages, as measured by dollar value of the discrepancy and a percentage of total inventory value at Merchant’s cost. The measurement shall be based upon the results of Sharizing’s cycle count program with its third party logistics provider unless Merchant requests an additional physical inventory which will be billed to Merchant at an agreed upon rate. Shrinkage overages and shortages roll forward throughout the duration of the contract term and are only payable after two consecutive shortages or expiration of this Agreement.
