Additional Terms for Online Stores
Last updated Oct 2021
Stage provides additional features for entities that use our Services ("Store," "Online Store," "Retailers, "Shops," "Online Shops," "you," or "your") that require additional terms or restrictions ("Additional Terms") and will provide the Services to Store following these Additional Terms.
These Additional Terms are listed below and incorporate our Terms of Service and any updates thereto (such documents, together with the Additional Terms, the "Terms"). When Stores use our Services, they also agree to all our Terms. The terms used in these Additional Terms shall have the meanings outlined in these Additional Terms.
Stage Sales Channel is a way to boost Store revenue through integration with Stage App and a seamless shopping experience for the customer. Stage sales channel connects to the Stage App to give Stores or Shops the best sales results from cross-promotional digital advertising with short-form videos showcasing real-life usages of their products made by social influencers.
Install Shopify Sales Channel
Under certain circumstances, you may begin using the Services to activate Stage sales channels on your Shopify store.
Activating Stage's Sales Channel will require stores to provide some information to share its products list on the Stage Mobile App.
Shop Account and Stage's Terms
After a shop installs the Stage's Sales Channel, it must provide some information to share its products list on the Stage Mobile App.
Right after a store profile is approved, their products will automatically be migrated to our Mobile App and made available for our Influencers to tag them in their videos, showcasing usage of the item. These will be posted inside the Stage App.
Suppose Stage has reason to believe you, Your Content or your use of the Services violates our Terms, including this Store terms. In that case, we may deactivate Your Content or suspend or terminate your account (and any accounts Stage determines related to your account) and your access to the Services.
The video content published by Stage for the products displayed for the Store is not the property of said company. If the Store decides to terminate the relationship with Stage, they will not be authorized to use said content on any visible means, such as website, social media, etc. If there is any content visible, it must be removed upon contract termination.
As a Store or Shop, you may be accessing the Services to create Store through a third-party "E-Commerce Platform," including Shopify. Stage and the E-Commerce Platforms are unaffiliated companies, and Stage does not influence the E-Commerce Platforms' operations. Stage and/or its Representatives shall in no way be held responsible for any losses or damages, direct or indirect, pecuniary or otherwise, resulting from any error or failure on the part of the E-Commerce Platform through which you are accessing the Services.
Upon installing Stage sales channel, you will be presented with the “Fees” that will be charged to you for the use of the Services to create and run Events. The Fees are “Transaction Fees,” a percentage of the sales from a Stage App.
The Fees displayed to you are in Canadian dollars, which may be converted to other currencies at the time of payment processing, depending on your country of origin. Fees may not include applicable taxes, which shall be displayed when your credit card is charged, depending on your location.
The Transaction Fees calculate automatically once the Purchase Order is finalized. The shopper credit card will be charged the amount calculated, and Shopper will receive an email notification of the amount charged. By joining our sales channel, you authorize Stage to collect the amount of the Transaction Fees.
Modification of the Fees
Stage, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Transaction Fees. Any Transaction Fee modification will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Period. Stage will provide you with reasonable prior notice of any change in Transaction Fees to allow you to terminate your account before such modification becomes effective. Your continued use of the Services after the Transaction Fees modification comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the modified Transaction Fees.
The Consumer can use STAGE to defer paying for a Purchase until after they have had a chance to try it on. The period for evaluating a Purchase (the "Trial Period") begins on the day the product is delivered to you (as determined by STAGE based on Purchase tracking information it receives from Merchant or a tracking service)
The Trial Period ends on the earliest of the following:
(a) the day any one item from the Purchase is returned to Merchant.
(b) the day consumer notifies STAGE or the Merchant that they are keeping everything from the Purchase.
(c) the trial expiration date communicated by STAGE at the start of the Trial Period. STAGE will notify the user when the Trial Period for a Purchase begins and when it is set to expire by sending an email to the email address user keep on file with STAGE.
Initial and Final Order Value
The amount the user can use STAGE to defer paying is the total value of the goods in their Purchase as specified by Merchant at the time of checkout (the "Pre Order Value"). This includes the cost of all the items purchased from the Merchant plus any other fees or charges assessed by the Merchant. When the Trial Period ends, Consumer will be responsible for repaying the Pre Order Value less any amounts credited to STAGE by Merchant during the Trial Period, such as an amount credited due to a return (this net amount being the "Final Order Price"). If the Merchant processes credit for multiple returned items on different days during the Trial Period, the Final Order Price will equal the Pre Order Value less the amount of the earliest Merchant credit.
Card Hold on user Bank Card
When you agree to use STAGE, STAGE places a temporary authorization hold for a short time, a matter of minutes, on funds associated with the credit or debit card user-provided STAGE in connection with the Purchase transaction (the "Bank Card") equal to the amount of the Pre Order Value (such authorization hold, a "Card Hold"). A Card Hold is different than a card charge in that the Card Hold does not result in funds coming out of the deposit account associated with the user debit card or an advance from the credit line associated with your credit card.
STAGE is not responsible for any transactions that the issuer of Bank Card may decline or on which it may assess an overdraft fee due to a Card Hold for a STAGE Purchase you requested.
Promise to Pay
In exchange for STAGE permitting, user to defer payment of your Purchase, consumer promise to pay STAGE the Final Order Value on or soon after the expiration of the Trial Period. The user promise to make this payment by authorizing STAGE to charge the Bank Card you provide in connection with the Purchase transaction, any substitute Bank Card provided STAGE, or any other Bank Card user may have on file with STAGE.
If STAGE's charge to a Bank Card fails, you authorize STAGE to continue attempting to charge any Bank Card until such payment is successful. If the user closes a Bank Card, reports it as lost or stolen or otherwise knows that STAGE's charge to the Bank Card will not be processed, the user agrees immediately to provide STAGE with a substitute Bank Card or pay STAGE through another means that STAGE may make available. STAGE will notify you of the Final Order Value on or around the date that STAGE processes the charge by sending an email to the email address you keep on file with STAGE.
Individual Purchase Evaluation
We will separately review each requesting user make to use STAGE for a Purchase. Our approval of one Purchase does not mean we will approve a subsequent Purchase. If we agree to your request, we will disburse the Pre Order Value (less any amount we may retain) to Merchant.
No Interest pay to STAGE:
This is a 0% APR extension of credit. There are no interest or other finance charges due on this payment option. Additional fees will apply as described in this agreement.
The Store is responsible for all sales, use, and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties, and charges of any kind imposed by any federal, state, multinational or local governmental regulatory authority on any amount payable by Store to Stage hereunder, other than any taxes imposed on Stage's income. Without limiting the preceding, if the Store is required to deduct or withhold any taxes from the amounts payable to Stage hereunder, the Store will pay an additional amount so that Stage receives the payments due to it hereunder in full, as if there were no withholding or deduction.
You agree and understand that the Confidentiality provision in terms of Service applies to Stores, in part, to foster an open environment where Shopper and entities in the business of attempting to influence the purchase decisions of others (whether through social media or similar outlets) ("Influencers") can contact you without fear that specific comments will be quoted or attributed to them outside of the Services. Further, you acknowledge that such provisions do not create a binding obligation on the part of the owners or operators of the Services to protect the confidentiality of information posted or transmitted through the Services or to act as insurers or guarantors of or to accept liability for, the conduct of other visitors.
Each party will have the right to publicly announce the existence of the business relationship between the parties. Besides, during the term of your use of our Services, we may use your name, trademarks, and logos (collectively, "Store's Marks") on our Websites, Applications, and marketing materials to identify you as our Shops and to provide the Services to you.
