Wholesale Files - Terms of Use Policy
Dropship Direct™ (DSDI, INC) has been in the wholesale drop ship distribution business since 2003, and we do our very best to serve our customers with a spirit of appreciation. We believe in the potential of our Retailer customers, which is why we developed our new WholesaleFiles™ marketplace data feed tool to make selling online easier. Your wholesale account with Dropship Direct™ is free and will always remain so.

If you place enough monthly orders with us ($1000/month), we’ll even waive the normal monthly cost of your optional WholesaleFiles™ service ($37.00).

The terms and conditions described on this page are typical for most e-commerce data service providers. In fact, we shamelessly borrowed much of what you read from other data feed service companies. They are designed to be straight-forward and easy to understand terms of use. If there’s anything in this policy you don’t understand or with which you don’t agree, please let us know: http://help.dropshipdirect.com

  • When seeking help for technical issues using WholesaleFiles™ (“WF”), please be as detailed as possible.
  • When adding the optional WF service to your account, you agree to be billed on a monthly, recurring basis.
  • If you qualify for free WF service, no worries; we’ll happily waive the fees
  • If you wish to cancel your WF service, visit your account settings at https://inventory.dropshipdirect.com/pages/wholesalefiles to unsubscribe
  • You agree not to use WF for any illegal purposes
  • Product and marketplace data content should be exclusively used for professinal company use and not distributed to third parties without prior permission from DSDI, INC
  • You agree not to resell WF services, website content, and/or WF data feeds without prior permission from DSDI, INC

Violations of this agreement can lead to account suspension and/or termination. You don’t want this; neither do we.

Your privacy is precious to us. We don’t share your company/personal details to third parties without your permission. We think junk mail is uncool, too.

If there’s anything else we can do to help clarify the above terms and/or user policy described below, please let us know. You’re the reason why we keep our lights on.


Happy Selling,
DropshipDirect.com

 


WHOLESALEFILES : TERMS OF USE AGREEMENT

This user agreement specifies the terms and conditions under which DSDI, INC agrees to provide you with access to inventory information (“the Information”). If you want to access DSDI, INC to centralize access to online inventory and use the automated inventory updating or use the other services we provide (collectively, “Services”) you must accept this user agreement (“Agreement”) in its entirety, including all of its terms and conditions.

This Agreement may be amended at any time by posting the amended terms and conditions on the DROPSHIPDIRECT.COM website. Unless otherwise indicated, all amended terms shall automatically be effective fourteen (14) days after they are initially posted, and your continued use of our Services indicates your acceptance of the amended terms. You are responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any changes.

DSDI, INC, in its sole discretion, may add, delete, or modify some or all of the features of the Information or Services at any time.

Eligibility; Registration

1.1 Use of the Services is limited to parties that lawfully can enter into and form contracts under applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, the Services are not available to minors. Further, the Services are not available to parties whose use of the Services has been suspended or terminated.

1.2 To use the Services, you must submit a complete registration form on behalf of yourself or the corporation, partnership or other legal entity that will be using the Services. By accepting this Agreement, you represent that (a) you are eighteen (18) or older and, if applicable, (b) you are authorized to sign for and bind the corporation, partnership or other legal entity that will be using the Services. You shall provide current, complete and accurate registration information (including email address and credit card information), and then update the information as required to keep the registration information current, complete and accurate.

1.3 As a subscription service, DSDI, INC will collect payment information from you during the account setup. By providing such payment methods to DSDI, INC, you are explicitly authorizing DSDI, INC to charge one or more of these methods as fees are due.

  

Fees and Payment Terms

2.1 The fees are set forth in the Fee Schedule and Payment Terms and are sent to you when you register and are posted on our site. All registered wholesale accounts start off as a free account with no additional data services and will remain this way until a data service is added by you, the user. When you add a data service to your account directly, the current cost will also show before you confirm the addition. Changes to fees and payment terms are effective immediately unless otherwise indicated, and it is your responsibility to check for any changes, but we will also update the changes on our site and alert our member network of the change by sending you a notice to your email ID on file. You agree to pay us for using our services in accordance with our then current Fee Schedule. All fees are payable in U.S. Dollars and will not be treated as paid until actually received by DSDI, INC in same-day and freely available funds. Failure to pay any amounts when due may, in DSDI, INC’s sole discretion, result in your account being suspended or terminated. Service fees may be waived either at the discretion of DSDI INC and/or by the customer’s accumulated monthly wholesale order history placed at dropshipdirect.com. Once a customer’s accumulated order total meets or exceeds $1,000.00, the standard WholesaleFiles™ data feed service fees will be waived during the following 30-day billing cycle. This fee waiver resets every 30-day billing cycle; if customer continues to qualify for free standard data feed service (based on previous 30 days of order history placed at dropshipdirect.com), customer will not be charged service fees.

2.2 Any claims for refunds or other adjustments to charges on your account must be submitted in writing. Any claim must be submitted within 30 days of the date such charges are placed on your account.
