THEMES & SITE TEMPLATES
Becoming a Seller is easy and if you’ve reached this point then you’re already a member and you’ve accepted our AfriScript Terms. These additional terms for Sellers (‘Seller Terms’) are an extra part of the AfriScript Market Terms that apply specifically to Sellers on the AfriScript Market. You’ll need to agree to them before you can become a Seller. These govern the relationships, rights and obligations of Sellers to us and buyers using AfriScript Market. You agree to put your items on AfriScript Market and make them available to buyers on the basis stated in the AfriScript Market Terms and these Seller Terms.
As a Seller on the AfriScript Market you have responsibilities to us and buyers of your items. Please take the time to review these Seller Terms carefully.
When we say ‘you’ in these Seller Terms we are referring to you, the Seller. All other words defined or explained in the AfriScript Market Terms have the same meaning here. If there’s any inconsistency between what we say in these Seller Terms and what is in the AfriScript Market Terms, what we say in these Seller Terms prevails.
Read on for details about your Seller responsibilities, the process of selling your items on the AfriScript Market and how you can earn money with us.
Becoming a Seller is free: Becoming an Seller and putting your items up on the AfriScript Market is free but there is a review process before your items go live. There are a few things you promise in exchange for the right to be a Seller, which are outlined in these Seller Terms.
Process to become a Seller: There are easy steps you follow to sign up as a Seller, which are outlined on the AfriScript Market Become an Seller guide. There you’ll find instructions and resources that will help you get started. You’ll also find information about payment, submission requirements and other important information about being a Seller on our Seller Guide page.
What you're providing:
When you ‘sell’ an item, you’re making your item available to buyers and downloaders to use that item under certain conditions; you’re not actually selling the item itself. What you’re selling includes a license directly to the buyer or downloader to use that item under the relevant license options that we set. Currently we support three types of Lisence standard, extended and Group Lisence
You can choose whether or not to support certain items. If you choose to support an item, this will be identified on the item page. All supported items include a support period. Buyers can buy support extensions on these items.
The total price for an item on AfriScript Market is made up of:
The item price is made up of a license fee (for the license chosen for the item), and if relevant the item support fee (for supported items).
When your item is sold on AfriScript Market, you will earn the item price component of the list price less a Seller fee that we charge. The Seller fee is what you are charged by AfriScript for use of our platform and services as an Seller. The Seller fee is a flat fee of 10% inclusive of all taxes .The Seller fee you pay to us is set out in the rates schedule that we can change at our discretion, from time to time. Any changes to these rates will take effect on and from the date on which notice of the variation is posted by us on AfriScript Market.
When you think you’ve created an item suitable for AfriScript Market, you can submit that item to us to check the quality and whether it contains adequate information for buyers. We have rules about what we accept and don’t accept and you can read up on these in our Seller-related AfriScript Market information. Although we always like to provide constructive feedback we’re not obliged to give you any reasons for rejecting your item. We have the final say on whether items are accepted for AfriScript Market.
You are not permitted to vary these terms (or our AfriScript Market Terms) as they apply between you and buyers, or to offer your items on different terms or with additional terms (for example, through your item description pages). Any different or additional terms that you try to impose on AfriScript Market on your items will have no effect against buyers or AfriScript.
These sections explain how earning an income works on the AfriScript Market and important information about payments to your account, and withdrawals and deductions from your account. Take a close look!
We will pay you the item price component of the total price less the Seller fee (‘your earnings’ or ‘earnings’). In order for us to do this, you Sellers us to collect payments, to credit your AfriScript Market account with your earnings, and to distribute your earnings to you.
To avoid any confusion, only your earnings from the sale of your items will be payable to you.
We’ll make payments of your earnings based on certain minimum threshold amounts of $10 based on your request.
You ask us to hold the balance of your earnings until you request a payment. You can do this by setting up automatic payment requests. We will continue to hold your earnings until we receive a request for withdrawal unless for some reason we decide to pay you your earnings without a request.
You must provide us with the correct details and payment method when you request your earnings.
You or we may also decide to issue a credit or refund to a buyer in certain circumstances involving issues with your item outlined in the AfriScript Market Refund Rules, or transactions that may be reversed for other reasons. If that happens, we reserve the right to deduct from your AfriScript Market account any amount that would otherwise be payable to you.
We will continue to hold your earnings if we’re not able to pay your earnings to you for whatever reason, including if:
we do not have the correct payment details;
we can’t contact you using the contact details that you have supplied;
you have not made a request for payment; or
you are asking for payment to be made to a person, an institution or a country that we’re legally prohibited from making payments to, or where there are limitations in the banking systems.
If we decide that an item of yours does not comply with an applicable law or any of our rules or guidelines, including the AfriScript Market Terms and these Seller Terms, we can at our discretion disable the item or your membership. We may also hold any earnings on that item for up to two years, and may release those held earnings during that period if we are satisfied that any dispute or issue about your item has been resolved.
If you buy an item from the AfriScript Market Buyers should buy pay the transaction payment gateway charges and currency conversion fee if applicable.
As a Seller on AfriScript Market, you are responsible for paying any taxes that apply (with the exception of VAT in an EU Member State) and price for the package listed should be inclusive of all taxes and there will not be any tax collected from buyers through AfriScript.
If required by law, we may deduct or withhold taxes (including withholding tax) in connection with your being an Seller. If so, we will give you relevant documentation that's required by law about the deduction or withholding (like documentation allowing you to access rebates or credits, or to manage your tax affairs).
We may collect geographical location information to determine your location. You may be required to give us tax-related documentation or information to help us identify you. Information and documentation may be used for tax purposes, so the information you give us must be accurate. Information or documentation may be collected by one AfriScript Company and disclosed to or handled by another AfriScript Company. We or another AfriScript Company may disclose or submit your information to regulators and government Sellerities in connection with our compliance procedures and obligations.
We will issue invoices (or in some cases tax invoices) for transactions between Sellers and buyers on AfriScript Market.

We may use the whole or part of your items to promote AfriScript . This promotional use may include use in public relations, emails, on a features page, or on other sites (e.g. social networks). No compensation is payable for these uses.
We have the right to remove an item for any reason, using our reasonable discretion. For example, we may review the libraries to keep the AfriScript Market fresh and full of quality items that meet the latest technical standards and market trends. Also, issues about an item might be brought to our attention such as errors, representations, or even violations. Our goal is always to address these situations with you constructively. We also aim to give you notice before an item is removed, but this is not always feasible or possible, so we can’t guarantee this. We will not be responsible for any loss that you may suffer as a result of your item being removed.

If, over and above what AfriScript provides you with, a member voluntarily provides you with (or your item accesses or uses) usernames, passwords or other personal information of the member (personal information), you must:
provide a privacy notice, making the member aware of their personal information that you will receive and how you will handle that information;
obtain the member’s permission to use their personal information;
use the personal information only for the limited purposes for which the member gave permission; and
meet any privacy and spam law requirements that apply to you.
Sometimes we might negotiate volume sales or other arrangements with buyers as part of creating business development opportunities for Sellers (special deals).

for passing on your promises to buyers made in s AfriScript Market Terms;
for limiting your liability to buyers of the AfriScript Market Terms.
We’re very glad you’ve made it to the end of this important document. You can head over and read the Seller Guide which will run through all the practical and operational stuff you’ll need to know.
We wish you all the very best in selling your items on the AfriScript Market.
