Terms and Conditions for Brands

1. Scope of application
These Weecos ("Business Terms") Terms of Sale (hereinafter "Terms") apply to Weecos and Weecos ("Service") manufacturer ("Brand"). The brand must be duly registered with a business ID. The service serves as a web shop where Brands can notify their products ("Product") for sale through the Service and customers who have registered or billed in their billing information ("Customer") can purchase Products from the Brands through the Service.

To obtain authorization to use the service, the Brand must meet the criteria set by Weecos. Weecos verifies the Brand's eligibility and then allows the Brand to sign up for the service. The Brand must answer the questions of the criterion truthfully. Weecos has the right to remove the Brand from the service on the basis of derecognition. Weecos grants the Brand the right to market its Products on the Service in accordance with these Terms and to the duration of the Agreement on the Use of the Service between Weecos and the Brand. There are separate Weecos delivery terms applicable to trade in products and their delivery [www].

Use of Weecos’ Service shall be subject to Brand’s acceptance of and compliance with (i) these Terms, and (ii) the Privacy Policy of the Service, which the Brand shall accept upon registering for the Service, and after which the Brand shall have the right to use the Service in accordance with the Terms currently in force.

2. Brand’s obligations and use of Service 
Weecos operates as the administrator of the marketplace in the Service and on behalf of the Brand, manages acceptance of Customer’s orders, billing, acceptance of spoken and written reclaims and the general customer service of the Service. The Brand manages the customer service of their own trademark (this comprises communication with Customers through the brand page). A purchase agreement is always formed between the Customer and the Brand selling the Product. Weecos is not the brand of the Product, neither a party in the sale of the Product in the Service.

Weecos provides the Brand with a merchant page through which the Brand can sell and market their products. The Brand has the right to sell in the Service only Products sold under its own brand (which must be self-made or subcontracted). The Brand does not have the right to market products from other manufacturers. Exceptions to this are the brand's selections of high-quality second-hand products (vintage products).

The license to use the Service obliges the Brand to keep Products on sale in the Service. The Brand is entitled to hold short breaks so the Brand's store page may be out of the sale for up to four months. If this time is exceeded, Weecos will contact the Brand and negotiate any changes to the service. The Customer Orders the Order by Selecting the Products in the Service Basket. The Brand is eligible to inform Product price, delivery costs and times, countries of delivery and guarantee correct exact value-added tax in connection with the marketing of the Product.

The Customer places an order by choosing Products in the shopping cart in the Service and pays the Products through the online payment service of the Service. The online payment service of Weecos is offered by Checkout Finland Oy (2196606-6). Checkout Finland Oy is responsible for the money transactions between the Customer and the Brand as well as maintaining account information of the Customer and the Brand.

The Brand will supply the Products to Customer by the Delivery Terms of the Weecos and within the delivery period specified by them. The brand can choose a delivery package or a letter. Weecos is not responsible for undelivered product shipments.

3. Product prices and Weecos commission
The Brand has the right to decide on the prices of the Products sold by the Service. The Brand's bid to Customers must include the Brand's value-added tax rate and the applicable value-added tax amount. The Brand is responsible for ensuring that his VAT on his products is appropriate. Brand's price to Customers must also include Weecos's 20% commission, calculated from the taxable price of the Product, which will be credited to the Weecos transaction. The chargeable fee includes the current value added tax as well as any other costs arising from the payment transaction. The fee charged does not include the costs of canceling the transaction (see section 6. Refunds).

The online payment service CheckOut Finland Oy will account for the proceeds of the actual sales deducted by the Weecos commission and the postal charges paid by the Customer in an unlimited amount, directly to the Brand's Account about once a week. Credit card debits are accounted for with a lag of about two weeks.

After receiving the product, the brand will compensate the full price to the customer. The customer is responsible for the delivery costs of the return.
