2. Fee Avoidance

Any action by a seller to avoid paying a fee is considered fee avoidance and is strictly prohibited by Shop Nottingham.

A transaction initiated on Shop Nottingham may not be completed off the Shop Nottingham site. The price stated in each listing description must be an accurate representation of the sale. Sellers may not alter the item’s price after a sale for the purpose of avoiding Shop Nottingham transaction fees, misrepresent the item’s location, or use another user’s account without permission.

3. Paying your Shop Nottingham Fees

Shop Nottingham will automatically deduct all fees owed from your payment account. Provided you have sufficient funds in your payment account no further payment action is required. If your payment account does not contain sufficient funds you are responsible for paying any fees owed in full within 15 days of the date of your monthly statement, or the account will be considered past due, and Shop Nottingham may charge your card on file or take other actions to collect funds as laid out in the Recoupment section of Shop Nottingham’s Payments Policy. If you make a sale while you have an outstanding balance the net sale amount will be applied to your outstanding balance. You may pay your outstanding balance manually by credit card, or debit card.
