Vendor Policy 

This policy (“Vendor Policy”) is a part of our Terms of Use. By using any of our Services as a Vendor, you agree to this Vendor Policy and our Terms of Use.


Marketplace Fees

  • Depending on the Vendor Plan you selected when you applied for a Continuum Store, you may owe monthly fees, commissions on sales, or other fees as “Marketplace Fees.” You agree to remit Marketplace Fees to Ten Block as outlined in the Plan section of the Vendor Admin Panel, and that failure to do so in a timely manner may result in account suspension or termination.

  • Any monthly plan you purchase through us will automatically renew unless you notify us. You may request cancellation at any time. 

  • We do not provide prorated refunds for cancelled plans, and will keep you Store active on the Continuum until the end of your current monthly term unless you request immediate deactivation.

  • Ten Block reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove Marketplace Fees at any time. Existing Vendors will be notified 30 days in advance of any changes to the monthly plans they have purchased.

  • You are responsible for the creation and operation of your Store.

  • You are responsible for all activity and content such as photos, images, videos, graphics, written content, audio files, information, or data uploaded, collected, generated, stored, displayed, distributed, transmitted or exhibited on or in connection with your Account.
