(The terms “ Live Siddha”, “we”, “us”, “our” refer to Live Siddha Retail Pvt Ltd.)
Live Siddha, acting as independent contractor under your instructions will market to and obtain orders from customers for the purchase of your products over the website and on instruction from you, Live Siddha will arrange for third parties to fulfil those orders by facilitating payment for, manufacture of and delivery of your products (“Services”).
Live Siddha will provide the Services pursuant to this agreement until termination in accordance with its terms.
You agree that Live Siddha is free to act in any capacity for any other person interested in promoting, marketing and obtaining orders from members of the public for the purchase of their art over the website, including any art that is the same as, or similar to, your products.
License and standing instructions
You grant Live Siddha an royalty free license to use your intellectual property relating to your products for the purpose of enabling us to carry out the Services.
You hereby instruct Live Siddha to facilitate payment, manufacture and shipping in respect of orders for your product(s) via the website and Live Siddha will facilitate such payment, manufacture and shipping in accordance with reasonable business practices unless you otherwise instruct prior to the placement of that order by a customer.
Sale of your products
The retail price charged to customers who purchase your product is made up of the manufacturing fee charged by the third party manufacturer, Live Siddha’s fee for hosting the marketplace and facilitating the transaction (the manufacturing fee and Live Siddha’s fee are referred to collectively, and inclusive of tax, as the “base price”), your creator margin (“your margin”), and any relevant tax (such as Sales Tax, GST, VAT, etc). Shipping charges will also be added. When making each individual work available for sale you are able to select any percentage markup you wish, greater than or equal to 0, above the base amount but below the automated upper limit set by Live Siddha (subject to change from time to time). The percentage markup selected by you on the website for each of your products is used to calculate the value of your margin for each sale.
You may change the percentage markup on top of the base amount at any time by changing your selection on the website. We may change the base amount at any time without specific notice to you and this will affect the value of your margin, which is calculated as a percentage of the base amount (e.g. if we increase our base amount, your margin will also increase). The retail price will not change on an individual sale after a customer has submitted an order to the website.
Live Siddha will send you an email to the email address you registered in your account to notify you when an order has been placed for your products.
You agree that Live Siddha does not guarantee that it will be able to procure an order for your products, whether at the retail price or at all, nor that you will obtain any benefit by entering into this Services Agreement.

You authorize Live Siddha to collect, hold and distribute the retail price and shipping charges (“sale proceeds”) from customers on the terms set out in this clause 4.

We will initiate a direct bank deposit between the 12th and 16th day of the month(the date might alter depending upon bank holidays) for sales made in the previous month, or post you a check before the 15th day of the month for sales made in the previous month, in accordance with the payment method you selected on the website. Please note that minimum amount to be transferred in a single transaction has to be above INR 100 for bank transfers and above INR 1000 for payments through cheques.
It is your responsibility to ensure Live Siddha has current details of your postal address and bank account details.

If we are unable to pay you because you have given us incorrect details or your details are out of date, we will hold your margin for up to 12 months from the payment date. If you have not notified Live Siddha of any amendment to the payment method details in that time, you authorize us to cancel your payment.
Each party is responsible for their own taxes associated with each transaction and will account for any taxes imposed by governments or governing authorities, and related accounting or audit requirements arising out of, as a result of, incidental to, or in connection with obligations under this Services Agreement. We recommend that you consult with your tax advisor as to the application of taxes for you, as the seller of the merchandise. This may include sales tax, VAT, and other transactional taxes.
