We want to make sure that you and your buyers have a positive experience on the Got2bcre8tv Marketplace. Please read to learn more about your rights and responsibilities.
This policy is a part of our Terms & Conditions. By opening a Got2bcre8tv Marketplace shop, you are agreeing to this policy and our Terms & Conditions.
What Can be Sold on Got2bcre8tv Marketplace
Got2bcre8tv Marketplace is a unique marketplace. Buyers come here to purchase items that they might not find anywhere else. Everything listed for sale on Got2bcre8tv Marketplace must be handmade, personally branded (no designer, name brand or other branded products that are not owned by you), or custom.
Handmade items are items that are made and/or designed by you, the seller. Items that are made are items that are physically made by you and listed for sale in the marketplace. Designed items are items where you come up with an original design and translate that design onto an item that is for sale on the marketplace.
If you sell handmade items, you agree that:
- All handmade items are made or designed by you. If you work with a manufacturer partner, you must disclose that manufacturer partner in your relevant listings.
- You accurately describe every person involved in the making of an item in your shop in your About section.
- You are using your own photographs—not stock photos, artistic renderings, or photos used by other sellers or sites.
If you are selling personalized or made-to-order items, you agree that:
- All listings are available for purchase at a set price.
- If you are using photographs of previous work with options for customization (like color choices) included in the listing, it is clear in your description that the photos shown are just examples.
Branded items are items that are designed solely by you with your logo or name only. Branded items cannot be items that carry the brand name of other artists or designers except for t-shirts that may have been printed on a t-shirt brand, but also includes your branding.
Custom items are items that are made to order. You may have similar items in your shop that people can request certain colors, sizes, or other specifications. Custom items must have a set price listed on the site for purchase.
We encourage you to be transparent about how your products were made and where your materials come from. You can disclose whether your items have social or environmental attributes, such as organic or recycled.
