Account Balance & Billing for all New Seller Accounts
New Merchants are required to add a $10.00 balance to their ledger as part of the setup process. New Merchant accounts are placed in a pending or review status with limited functionality during a review period and/or while an account verification is conducted.

High risk accounts will require greater reserve funds to be maintained on your ledger and/or additional funding sources and verification may be required.
Account Balance & Billing for Per Item(Formerly Free Commission Only) Plan
Merchants on the Per Item Plan are required to maintain a positive account ledger balance. (Note – This is the ledger that keeps track of commissions and Item Listing Fees, ILF). New Merchants on the Ad Supported plan are required to add a $10.00 balance to their ledger as part of the setup process. Item Listing and sale Commission fees will draw down the account balance when sales are made; if a ledger would be depleted to below a 0.00 balance by an Item Listing or Commission fee, a charge sufficient to bring the ledger balance back to $5.00 will be processed.
Item Listing Fees (ILF) is assessed and added to Merchant’s Accounting Ledger at the per item level when items are taken live in the Merchant’s shop. Listings stay live until sold or for a period of 60 days. Listing an item with a quantity greater than one available will apply a single ILF fee to the Accounting Ledger at the time of listing and an additional ILF fee for each item sold over the first. Additional quantities of an item sold will be assessed the per item ILF at the time of sale. If multiple quantity of an item is available and one or some of the total available are sold the remaining quantity of that item available will stay active and only be assessed an additional ILF when each item sells. Items will automatically renew if not sold at the expiration of the 60 day listing period. Merchants can disable auto renew preferences on the My Items page.
Account Balance & Billing for all Paid Plans
Merchants on any paid plan level (Shop, Store, Featured Store or Featured Store+) can accrue commission or other ledger charges up to a -$5 limit after which an automatic payment will bring the account balance back to $5.00. This limit can be changed on a case by case basis for established sellers in good standing.
Account balances that are more 20 days old will be collected on the 1st of the next Month. The minimum charge for account balance payments is $5.00, If you owe less than $5.00 any remainder will be added as a positive balance on your account.
On shop7e our Promoted Items are targeted at handmade shoppers, the best target group you can advertise to. Promoted Items are $2.00 per 500 Impressions per item, lower than the Industry Average. When activating this feature, your items are shown to shoppers more frequently than other items, leading to more views to your items. When listing an item you have the option to List and Promote or just list your item without promotion and when editing your items you can now Update and Promote or just update. Your promoted items will be displayed where they are most likely to convert to a sale including at the bottom of similar items and page with a high affinity match to your items.
The daily per item threshold cap has been set at $2 per item to prevent item view saturation and abuse. When you toggle promotion on your promoted items will display and receive additional exposure until your item sells or set your item(s) to “Stop Promoting” via the Actions button on your My Items page. Due to the nature of these charges and the service provided, the fees are non-refundable.

Automatic renewal can be canceled at any time and your plan will revert to the free plan level once your remaining pre-paid time has expired. Merchant users who are upgrading from one paid plan level to another will be charged a one time pro-rated amount to immediately receive the new plans benefits, regular billing will continue on the user’s next billing date.
UPGRADING TO A PLAN WITH A REDUCED COMMISSION DOES NOT RETROACTIVELY CHANGE PENDING COMMISSION CHARGES, ALL COMMISSION CHARGES ARE CALCULATED BASED ON YOUR COMMISSION RATE AT THE TIME OF THE SALE.
Intentionally listing commercial items as handmade or vintage will result in the automatic reclassification of shop and a plan price adjustment to a commercial account. Items will be removed and back fees and penalties will be assessed. Any violation of this section will result in the seller account being placed in a probationary, high risk status and additional reserve funds will be required to be maintained on account ledger based on an internal risk assessment. Listing items in incorrect categories to obtain additional placement or site exposure will result in the take down of the items and seller account being placed in a probationary, high risk status requiring an increased minimum account ledger balance. Accounts designated as probationary, high risk may be assessed a special admin fee of $50 per month on top of all other listing, shop and FVF fees and will not be eligible for refund of ledger balance upon account closure. Multiple accounts under the control of a single seller may be affected and restricted under this policy. Establishing a new account when a current or prior account is delinquent will result in all related accounts being placed in probationary, high risk or other restricted status.

- Native American Crafts
The Indian Arts and Crafts Act is a truth-in-advertising law that prohibits misrepresentation in the marketing of Native American or American Indian arts and crafts products within the United States.
shop7e Merchants who are listing items that are inspired by Native American or American Indian craft, be sure to label those items truthfully and accurately. It is illegal to list or sell any item in a manner that falsely suggests it is Native American or American Indian produced or the product of a particular tribe or arts and crafts organization within the United States.
Here is more information directly from the Indian Arts and Crafts Board:
When consumers unwittingly purchase art or craftwork misrepresented as a Native American product, the integrity and vitality of the authentic Native American art and craft market is seriously eroded.
Congress passed the Indian Arts and Crafts Act in 1990. The Act is a truth-in-marketing law designed to prevent the marketing of art and craft products as Indian made when they are not, in fact, made by Indians as defined by the Act. The Act is designed to help protect this vital indigenous heritage from unfair competition.
The Act does not prohibit non-Indians from creating Indian-style or Indian-inspired art or craft items. The Act does, however, require that products sold as Indian, Native American, or the product of a particular Indian Tribe be made by an enrolled member of a federally or officially State recognized Tribe, or a certified non-member Indian artisan by the Tribe of their direct descent.
