Reporting policy violations:

If you see a listing that violates one of our policies, report it by sending an email to admin@artyah.com.

If we determine that a listing has violated a policy, we will email the seller and the bidders or the buyer to let them know that we've removed the listing from ArtYah.

Selling Policy:

ArtYah is a marketplace where you can sell your handmade goods, antiques, vintage items and craft supplies directly to buyers around the world. We want to make sure that you and your buyers have a positive experience on ArtYah. Please read on to find out more about your rights, as well as what is expected of you, as a seller.

By selling on ArtYah, you agree that you will:

Provide honest, accurate information in your About page should you choose to have one. Honor your Shop policies, should you choose to publish them. Accurately represent your items in listing photos. Respect the intellectual property of others. If you feel someone has violated your intellectual property rights, you can report it to ArtYah. Not engage in fee avoidance. Not create duplicate shops. 
 

Custom orders outside of ArtYah

A. Items purchased in person via the sale on ArtYah
B. Subscriptions or other transactions in which the buyer submits a single payment for recurring deliveries (like item-of-the-month clubs).
C. Transactions processed outside of ArtYah, for example, through standalone PayPal or a personal check, money order etc.

 

Emails:

You may receive a buyer’s email address or other information as a result of entering into a transaction with that buyer. This information may only be used for ArtYah-related communications or for ArtYah-facilitated transactions. You may not use this information for unsolicited commercial messages or unauthorized transactions. Without the buyer’s explicit consent, you may not add any ArtYah member to your email or physical mailing list or store or misuse any payment information.

Extortion:

Extortion is not allowed on ArtYah.  Any attempt to manipulate reviews through threats, intimidation, or bribery is considered extortion and is strictly prohibited on ArtYah. Extortion includes when a seller offers a buyer additional goods, services, or compensation in exchange for a positive feedback.

Shilling:

Shilling is strictly prohibited on ArtYah. Shilling is the fraudulent inflation of a shop’s reputation by use of an alternate account. The intent of shilling is to make a seller look more desirable by increasing the shop’s number of sales and overall review score. Not only does it violate our core value of transparency, but it is considered to be a deceptive business practice by the US Federal Trade Commission. Feedback must reflect the honest, unbiased opinions, findings, beliefs, or experience of the buyer.

Visiting www.ArtYah.com or sending emails to ArtYah constitutes electronic communications. You consent to receive electronic communications and you agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically, via email and on the Site, satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.

  1. Honor your shipping and processing times. Sellers are obligated to ship an item or otherwise complete a transaction with a buyer in a prompt manner, unless there is an exceptional circumstance.

  2. Respond to communications in a timely manner.
  3. Honor the commitments you make in your shop policies.
  4. Resolve disagreements or disputes directly with the buyer. In the unlikely event that you can’t reach a resolution, our Trust and Safety team can help through our case system. Read about your rights and responsibilities regarding cases.
  5. If you are unable to complete an order, you must notify the buyer and cancel the order.

Cancellations:

If you are unable to complete a transaction, you must notify the buyer and cancel the transaction. If the buyer already submitted payment, you must issue a full refund. You are encouraged to keep proof of any refunds in the event a dispute arises.

You may cancel a transaction under the following circumstances:

  1. The buyer did not pay. (The seller may flag a buyer for a payment not received, chargeback, or canceled payment.)
  2. Both you and the buyer agree to cancel the transaction prior to shipment, and you have issued the buyer a full refund.
  3. You have decided to refuse service to the buyer, and if the buyer has already paid, you have issued a full refund, including shipping.
  4. The buyer did not receive the item(s) ordered, even though you provided proof of shipping, and you have issued a refund for the item. (Refunding shipping is optional, unless the buyer paid with Direct Payments, in which case you'll need to refund in full.)
  5. Both you and the buyer agreed that the buyer could return the item for a refund, you have received the returned item and issued a refund to the buyer for the item. (Refunding shipping is optional, unless the buyer paid with Direct Payments, in which case you will need to refund in full.)

Seller account fees:

Artyah has a $5.00 PayPal verification fee.

This method is used to verify names, addresses and email addresses of the person signing up to become
a seller on ArtYah.

​When an item is imported or (listed by using the sell link)
there will be a $0.10 listing fee added to the seller account.
Fees can be viewed in the account fees section.

​Fees are billed once monthly on the first of every month
and need to be paid when the invoice is presented.

​Accounts will have a 10 day grace period, but will also receive
an invoice ​daily until the account has been paid in full.

If an account remains unpaid after the 5th day of the month, a letter is sent out via email
​to the recipient that has a balance due. The letter will detail the account and will also let the
​individual know that if the account remains unpaid after the 10th day of the month:

  • The account will be suspended
  • All buyer and selling privileges removed
  • All listings posted by seller will be deleted

​In an effort to keep seller fees down, we have implemented  a new policy -
Wshen an amount of $10.00 is reached by importing items or listings, accosiated fees must be paid in
order to continue listing. This is a separate transaction from invoices that are billed on the first of the month.
