Term: The Good Trends and Seller agree that the term of the Agreement shall remain in effect until terminated by either party as set forth below. 

Cancellation: If The Good Trends or Seller is not satisfied with the program defined by this Agreement, and the results thereof, either party may terminate this agreement by providing a written notice to the other aforementioned party at any time. 

Agreement to resale: The Seller acknowledges and appoints the The Good Trends as an official licensed distributor and reseller for Seller’s products in all states [and territories] of the United States of America. 

Seller's Role: Seller will provide product fulfillment for all sales obtained by The Good Trends in regards to any products listed on The Good Trends Website or Services by Seller. Seller is not involved in the actual transaction between the The Good Trends and the Buyer. Seller is not the agent of either the The Good Trends or the Buyer.  

Trademark License and Marketing Materials.  Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Seller grants to The Good Trends a non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty-free license to use, copy, reproduce and distribute any marketing materials provided by Seller under this Agreement (the “Marketing Materials”) and to use any trademarks, service marks, logos and trade names of Seller included in or on such Marketing Materials (the “Seller Marks”), solely in connection with marketing and reselling the Seller’s products in the United States.  The Good Trends agrees to reproduce any Seller Marks or other proprietary notices on any Marketing Materials copied, reproduced or distributed by The Good Trends.  Promptly upon notice from Seller, The Good Trends will suspend or modify its use of the Marketing Materials (and The Seller Marks) if Seller determines that The Good Trends’ use of the same does not comply with this Agreement and with Seller’s then-current trademark usage policies.

Listing Information: Seller is responsible for the accuracy and content of the listing and items offered via The Good Trends Properties.  Seller’s listing may not be immediately searchable by keyword or category for several hours.  The Good Trends strives to create a marketplace where Buyers can find what they are looking for.  Therefore, the appearance or placement of listing in search and browse results will depend on a variety of factors, including, but not limited to: (i) a Buyer’s location, search query, browsing sites, and history; (ii) an item’s location, listing format, price and shipping cost, terms of service, end time, history, and relevance to the Buyer’s query; (iii) Seller’s history, Seller rating and feedback; and (iv) the number of listings matching the Buyer’s query.  To drive a positive user experience, a listing may not appear in some search and browse results regardless of the sort order chosen by the Buyer.

Shipments: Seller will aim to fulfill shipments in less than 3 business days after order placement in a shipping container fitting for the safety of product transportation. For each order, tracking number should be shared with the The Good Trends ahead of invoicing.

Inventory: Seller will provide transparency in terms of inventory available for the sales either through TGT online platform or through the Ecommerce POS integration. Repeated out of stock will lead to reduced visibility on The Good Trends Properties.

Shelf life: Seller will always aim to supply products with at least 75% of its maximum shelf life to allow Buyers to sell the product. Supplying below this shelf life can result in termination of this Agreement.

Fees and Charges: Seller will provide The Good Trends with a detailed listing of all items shown in the photos along with, but not limited to, the price they will be charged for each item, shipping amounts and any and all other charges which may be due in affiliation with each item. Seller will also provide The Good Trends with the suggested retail price. The Good Trends will pay all fees and charges incurred with each item shipped by the Seller directly to the Buyer. The Good Trends will charge Buyers on average a 15% commission on  transactions value. The price the The Good Trends charges for each item will be left solely to the The Good Trends’ discretion. 

Billing and payment terms:  Payment terms will be End of Month and all payments for shipped orders (with tracking number) will be deposited into the Seller account no later than the 3rd day of each month.

Sales and Tax: The Good Trends agrees that it is the sole responsibility of The Good Trends to collect, report, and remit all taxes to the correct tax authority for all business transactions, sales or revenue stemming from the sales of the Seller’s products. The Good Trends further agrees that Seller is not obligated to determine whether a sales tax applies and is not responsible to collect, report, or remit any tax information arising from any transaction involving the images or photos provided. 

Return policy: Product returns will be managed by the The Good Trends for all products delivered in sellable state. Seller should monitor their return rates in their dashboard in order not to lose visibility to the The Good Trends’ Buyer. 

Bad address: If reshipping is required due to a bad address, Seller may charge The Good Trends a re-shipping charge equal to the original shipping charge added to the The Good Trends’ account.

Non-Payment: Seller is not responsible for any payment problems between The Good Trends and the Buyer.
