However, we do not warrant the completeness, accuracy, or reliability of any product descriptions, pricing, availability, or other information displayed. We reserve the right to modify or discontinue products without prior notice that are part of our inventory. Your shop Terms and Conditions Policy should include a sub section for product accuracy.

Limitation of Products for Sale by Vendors:

Vendors are not allowed to sale products that are illegal, stolen or in opposition to the sensibilities of the local community. We reserve the right to require you to remove a product if it causes real or perceived harm to the website or other vendors.

If you are not an authorized seller of a newly manufactured product, you must state that the product is for resale. Authorized sellers must provide proof to HCM before we allow a newly manufactured product to be sold on the website, where you are not the manufacturer of the product. Products should state if they are new or used or if they are new and for resale.

Items that you manufacture or create are considered new and don’t have to state they are new.

Any software or digital item that has a license, you must be in possession of the license to transfer to the buyer.

Print on Demand products are allowed, but require you to manually list those products, where you would have to process the order manually with the Print on Demand (POD) vendor, after payment has been received. This website has limited automated listing ability and integrations with Print on Demand vendors. Limitations for print on demand vendors typically only allows one website to be associated with the vendor’s website. As such, it would be Hunt County Market and not your individual shop. Due to this limitation by POD vendors, a single POD shared account would have to be used by all shops on HCM, which is not sustainable.  If you are interested in automating a Print on Demand service for your shop, please contact us to see if it can be supported.

Fees and Charges:

We process all online transactions. The payment processors charge transactions fees. The payment received from an online sale is set aside in an account. At the end of each week, the payment processing fees are deducted from your proceeds along with our .05% fee (this covers our website hosting and advertising). We then transfer the remaining funds to the account you have on file. If no account is on file, we will mail you a check if we have your address. If we do not have an address for you, we will contact you to determine how to send you your funds.

Sales Tax:

We process all online transactions for you. As such we are required to capture local sales and use tax at the time of sale. The proceeds you receive will have the sales tax included in it. As such, you are required to file and pay the sales tax with the State of Texas. We do not pay the sales tax for you. All orders show an itemization of the sales tax charged and received. We charge sales tax based on Greenville, Texas sales tax rate. If you live outside of the city limits of Greenville and sale products on our website, you will need to inform us of your locality and tax rate. We will create a custom tax rate selection for you that you will choose for each product.
