Terms of Service
1. Accepting These Terms
This document and the other documents that we reference below make up our house rules, or what we officially call our Terms of Service (the “Terms” for short). The Terms are a legally binding contract between you and Diabetic Plaza.
Please note that Section 10. Disputes with Diabetic Plaza, contains an arbitration clause and class action waiver. By agreeing to the Terms, you agree to resolve all disputes through binding individual arbitration, which means that you waive any right to have those disputes decided by a judge or jury, and that you waive your right to participate in class actions, class arbitrations, or representative actions.
This contract sets out your rights and responsibilities when you use DiabeticPlaza.com, our mobile apps, and the other services provided by Diabetic Plaza (we’ll refer to all of these collectively as our “Services”), so please read it carefully. By using any of our Services (even just browsing one of our websites), you’re agreeing to the Terms. If you don’t agree with the Terms, you may not use our Services.
2. Your Privacy
Both Diabetic Plaza and sellers process members’ personal information (for example, buyer name, email address, and shipping address) and are therefore considered separate and independent data controllers of buyers’ personal information. That means that each party is responsible for the personal information it processes in providing the Services. For example, if a seller accidentally discloses a buyer’s name and email address when fulfilling another buyer’s order, the seller, not Diabetic Plaza, will be responsible for that unauthorized disclosure.
If, however, Diabetic Plaza and sellers are found to be joint data controllers of buyers’ personal information, and if Diabetic Plaza is sued, fined, or otherwise incurs expenses because of something that you did as a joint data controller of buyer personal information, you agree to indemnify Diabetic Plaza for the expenses it occurs in connection with your processing of buyer personal information.
3. Your Account
You’ll need to create an account with Diabetic Plaza to use some of our Services. Here are a few rules about accounts with Diabetic Plaza:
- You must be 18 years or older to use our Services. Minors under 18 and at least 13 years of age are only permitted to use our Services through an account owned by a parent or legal guardian with their appropriate permission and under their direct supervision. Children under 13 years are not permitted to use Diabetic Plaza or the Services. You are responsible for any and all account activity conducted by a minor on your account, and there may be commercial products or services available that you may want to consider to limit a minor’s access to material online.
- Be honest with us. Provide accurate information about yourself. It’s prohibited to use false information or impersonate another person or company through your account.
- Choose an appropriate name. If you decide to not have your full name serve as the name associated with your account, you may not use language that is offensive, vulgar, infringes someone’s intellectual property rights, or otherwise violates the Terms.
- You’re responsible for your account. You’re solely responsible for any activity on your account. If you’re sharing an account with other people, then the person whose financial information is on the account will ultimately be responsible for all activity. If you’re registering as a business entity, you personally guarantee that you have the authority to agree to the Terms on behalf of the business. Also, your accounts are not transferable.
- Protect your password. As we mentioned above, you’re solely responsible for any activity on your account, so it’s important to keep your account password secure.
- Let’s be clear about our relationship. These Terms don’t create any agency, partnership, joint venture, employment, or franchisee relationship between you and Diabetic Plaza.
4. Your Content
Content that you post using our Services is your content (so let’s refer to it as “Your Content”). We don’t make any claim to it, which includes anything you post using our Services (like shop names, profile pictures, listing photos, listing descriptions, reviews, comments, videos, usernames, etc.).
Responsibility for Your Content. You understand that you are solely responsible for Your Content. You represent that you have all necessary rights to Your Content and that you’re not infringing or violating any third party’s rights by posting it.
Permission to Use Your Content. By posting Your Content through our Services, you grant Diabetic Plaza a license to use it. We don’t claim any ownership to Your Content, but we have your permission to use it to help Diabetic Plaza function and grow. That way, we won’t infringe any rights you have in Your Content and we can help promote it. For example, you acknowledge and agree Diabetic Plaza may offer you or Diabetic Plaza buyers promotions on the Site, from time to time, that may relate to your listings
Rights You Grant Diabetic Plaza. By posting Your Content, you grant Diabetic Plaza a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, sub-licensable, perpetual license to use, display, edit, modify, reproduce, distribute, store, and prepare derivative works of Your Content. This allows us to provide the Services and to promote Diabetic Plaza, your Diabetic Plaza store, or the Services in general, in any formats and through any channels, including across any Diabetic Plaza Services, our partners, or third-party website or advertising medium. You agree not to assert any moral rights or rights of publicity against us for using Your Content. You also recognize our legitimate interest in using it, in accordance with the scope of this license, to the extent Your Content contains any personal information.
That sounds like a lot, but it’s necessary for us to keep Diabetic Plaza going. Consider these examples: if you upload a photo or video of a listing on your Diabetic Plaza shop, we have permission to display it to buyers, and we can resize or enhance it so it looks good to a buyer using our mobile app; and if you post a beautiful photo or video of your latest product, we can feature it– often along with your store name and shop picture– on our homepage, in our blogs or even on a billboard to help promote your business and Diabetic Plaza’s.
Reporting Unauthorized Content. Diabetic Plaza has great respect for intellectual property rights, and is committed to following appropriate legal procedures to remove infringing content from the Services. If content that you own or have rights to has been posted to the Services without your permission and you want it removed, please contact us. If Your Content is alleged to infringe another person’s intellectual property, we will take appropriate action, such as disabling it if we receive proper notice or terminating your account if you are found to be a repeat infringer. We’ll notify you if any of that happens.
Inappropriate, False, or Misleading Content. This should be common sense, but there are certain types of content we don’t want posted on Diabetic Plaza’s Services (for legal reasons or otherwise). You agree that you will not post any content that is abusive, threatening, obscene, vulgar, or otherwise offensive or in violation of our Policy, or any part of our Terms. You also agree not to post any content that is false and misleading or uses the Services in a manner that is fraudulent or deceptive.
5. Your Use of Our Services
License to Use Our Services. We grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license to use our Services—subject to the Terms and the following restrictions in particular:
Don’t Use Our Services to Break the Law. You agree that you will not violate any laws in connection with your use of the Services. This includes any local, state, federal, and international laws that may apply to you. For example, it’s your responsibility to obtain any permits or licenses that your shop requires, and to meet applicable legal requirements in applicable jurisdiction(s). This includes the sale and delivery of your items, such as age verification upon delivery, where required by law. You may not sell anything that violates any laws, and you may not engage in fraud (including false claims or infringement notices), theft, anti-competitive conduct, threatening conduct, or any other unlawful acts or crimes against Diabetic Plaza, another Diabetic Plaza user, or a third party.

Except as set forth below, you are also solely responsible for collecting and/or paying any applicable taxes for any purchases or sales you make through our Services.

Don’t Steal Our Stuff. You agree not to crawl, scrape, or spider any page of the Services or to reverse engineer or attempt to obtain the source code of the Services.
Don’t Try to Harm Our Systems. You agree not to interfere with or try to disrupt our Services, for example by distributing a virus or other harmful computer code.
Follow Our Trademark Policy. The name “Diabetic Plaza” and the other Diabetic Plaza marks, phrases, logos, and designs that we use in connection with our Services (the Diabetic Plaza Trademarks), are trademarks, service marks, or trade dress of Diabetic Plaza in the US and other countries.

You grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, sub-licensable, perpetual license to use and publish those ideas and materials for any purpose, without compensation to you.
G. Talk to Us Online. From time to time, Diabetic Plaza will provide you with certain legal information in writing. By using our Services, you’re agreeing to our Electronic Communications Policy, which describes how we provide that information to you. It says that we can send you information electronically (such as by email) instead of mailing you paper copies (it’s better for the environment), and that your electronic agreement is the same as your signature on paper.
Termination By You You may terminate your account with Diabetic Plaza at any time from your account settings. You’ll still have to pay any outstanding bills.
Termination By Diabetic Plaza We may terminate or suspend your account (and any accounts Diabetic Plaza determines are related to your account) and your access to the Services should we have reason to believe you, your Content, or your use of the Services violate our Terms. If we do so, it’s important to understand that you don’t have a contractual or legal right to continue to use our Services, for example, to sell or buy on our websites or mobile apps. Generally, Diabetic Plaza will notify you that your account has been terminated or suspended, unless you’ve repeatedly violated our Terms or we have legal or regulatory reasons preventing us from notifying you.
If you or Diabetic Plaza terminate your account, you may lose any information associated with your account, including Your Content.
We May Discontinue the Services Diabetic Plaza reserves the right to change, suspend, or discontinue any of the Services for you, any or all users, at any time, for any reason, including those laid out in Diabetic Plaza’s policies under these Terms of Service. We will not be liable to you for the effect that any changes to the Services may have on you, including your income or your ability to generate revenue through the Services.
Survival. The Terms will remain in effect even after your access to the Service is terminated, or your use of the Service ends.
7. Warranties and Limitations of Liability

Diabetic Plaza is not responsible for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, or decency of content posted by users that you accessed through the Services.

We reserve the right to handle our legal defense however we see fit, even if you are indemnifying us, in which case you agree to cooperate with us so we can execute our strategy.
9. Disputes with Other Users
If you find yourself in a dispute with another user of Diabetic Plaza’s Services or a third party, we encourage you to contact the other party and try to resolve the dispute amicably.
Case System. Buyers and sellers who are unable to resolve a dispute related to a transaction on our websites or mobile apps may participate in our case system. You can find details about the case system in this Help article. Diabetic Plaza will attempt to help you resolve disputes in good faith and based solely on our interpretation of our policies, in our sole discretion; we will not make judgments regarding legal issues or claims. Diabetic Plaza has no obligation to resolve any disputes.
Release of Diabetic Plaza. You release Diabetic Plaza from any claims, demands, and damages arising out of disputes with other users or parties.
10. Disputes with Diabetic Plaza
If you’re dissatisfied with us, inform us, and hopefully we can resolve your issue. But if we can’t, then these rules will govern any legal dispute involving our Services:
A. Governing Law. The Terms are governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of laws rules, and the laws of the United States of America. These laws will apply no matter where in the world you live, but if you live outside of the United States, you may be entitled to the protection of the mandatory consumer protection provisions of your local consumer protection law.
B. Arbitration. You and Diabetic Plaza agree that any dispute or claim arising from or relating to the Terms shall be finally settled by final and binding arbitration, using the English language, administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect (those rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this section, and as of the date of these Terms you can find the AAA Rules here), unless otherwise required by law. **Arbitration, including threshold questions of arbitrability of the dispute, will be handled by a sole arbitrator in accordance with those rules. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court that has jurisdiction.
Any arbitration or mediation under the Terms will take place on an individual basis. You understand that by agreeing to the Terms, you and Diabetic Plaza are each waiving the right to trial by jury or to participate in a class action lawsuit. Class arbitrations shall only be available if requested by either party under its Class Action Arbitration Rules and approved by the arbitration entity. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party shall have the right to bring an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable or conservatory relief, pending a final decision by the arbitrator or mediator. You may instead assert your claim in “small claims” court, but only if your claim qualifies, your claim remains in such court, and your claim remains on an individual, non-representative, and non-class basis.
C. Costs of Arbitration. Payment for any and all reasonable AAA filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees will be in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules. If the value of your claim does not exceed $10,000 USD, Diabetic Plaza will pay for the reasonable filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration, unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose. For mediation, the parties will pay their share of mediation costs, and under certain conditions such fees may be refundable to you, depending on the outcome of the mediation.
D. Forum. We’re based in California, so any legal action against Diabetic Plaza related to our Services must be filed and take place in San Luis Obispo County, California. For all actions under the AAA Rules, the proceedings may be filed where your residence is, or in California, California, and any in-person hearings will be conducted at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties taking into account their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. For any actions not subject to arbitration or mediation, you and Diabetic Plaza agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state or federal court located in San Luis Obispo County, California.
E. Government Exception. If you are a government agent or entity in the United States using the Services in your official capacity, and you are legally unable to agree to the clauses in this section, then those clauses do not apply to you. In that case, the Terms and any action related to the Terms will be governed by the laws of the United States (without reference to conflict of laws) and, in the absence of federal law and to the extent permitted under federal law, the laws of the State of California.
F. Modifications. If we make any changes to this “Disputes with Diabetic Plaza” section after the date you last accepted the Terms, those changes will not apply to any claims filed in a legal proceeding against Diabetic Plaza prior to the date the changes became effective. Diabetic Plaza will notify you of substantive changes to the “Disputes with Diabetic Plaza” section at least 30 days prior to the date the change will become effective. If you do not agree to the modified terms, you may send Diabetic Plaza a written notification (including email) or close your account within those 30 days. By rejecting a modified term or permanently closing your account, you agree to arbitrate any disputes between you and Diabetic Plaza in accordance with the provisions of this “Disputes with Diabetic Plaza” section as of the date you last accepted the Terms, including any changes made prior to your rejection. If you reopen your closed account or create a new account, you agree to be bound by the current version of the Terms.

a. Creating and Uploading Content
As a member of Diabetic Plaza, you have the opportunity to create and upload a variety of content, like listings, Messages, text, photos, and videos. In order to keep our community safe and respectful, you agree that you will not upload content that is:
- Graphic, obscene, or vulgar;
- In violation of someone else’s privacy or intellectual property rights; or
- False, deceptive, or misleading.
b. Privacy and Protecting Personal Information
In particular, when you sell using our Services (subject to this Policy), you may receive and determine what to do with certain personal information, such as when communicating with users and entering into transactions with buyers. This means you process personal information (for example, buyer name, email address, and shipping address) and, to the extent you do so, you are an independent controller of data relating to other users that you may have obtained through the Services.
As a data controller (that is someone who decides what personal data is collected and the purpose you’ll use the data for) to the extent that you process user personal information outside of the Services, you may be required under applicable data protection and privacy laws to honor requests received from such users for data access, portability, correction, deletion, and objections to processing. Also, if you disclose personal information without the buyer’s proper consent, you are responsible for that unauthorized disclosure. This includes, for example, disclosures you make or unintentional data breaches. For example, you may receive a buyer’s email address or other information as a result of entering into a transaction with that buyer. This information may only be used for Diabetic Plaza-related communications or for Diabetic Plaza-facilitated transactions. You may not use this information for unsolicited commercial messages or unauthorized transactions. Without the buyer’s consent, and subject to other applicable Diabetic Plaza policies and laws, you may not add any Diabetic Plaza member to your email or physical mailing list, use that buyer’s identity for marketing, or obtain or retain any payment information. Please bear in mind that you’re responsible for knowing the standard of consent required in any given instance. If Diabetic Plaza and you are found to be joint data controllers of personal information, and if Diabetic Plaza is sued, fined, or otherwise incurs expenses because of something that you did in your capacity as a joint data controller of buyer personal information, you agree to indemnify Diabetic Plaza for the expenses it occurs in connection with your processing of buyer personal information.
c. Communication Standards
With Diabetic Plaza Messages, you have the ability to communicate directly with your buyers or other Diabetic Plaza members. Messages are a great way for buyers to ask you questions about an item or an order.
Messages may not be used for the following activities:
- Sending unsolicited advertising or promotions, requests for donations, or spam;
- Contacting someone after they have explicitly asked you not to; or
- Interfering with a transaction or the business of another member.
- Exchanging personal contact, financial or other information for the purposes of evading the checkout process on Diabetic Plaza, including phone number, address, email, social media handles, external URLs, instructions for money transfer, etc.
Interference occurs when a member intentionally interferes with another member’s store in order to drive away their business. Interference is strictly prohibited on Diabetic Plaza. Examples of interference include:
- Contacting another member via Diabetic Plaza Messages to warn them away from a particular member, store, or item;
- Posting in public areas to demonstrate or discuss a dispute with another member;
- Purchasing from a seller for the sole purpose of leaving a negative review;
- Maliciously clicking on a competitor’s Promoted Listings ads in order to drain that member’s advertising budget, also known as “click fraud.”
- Creating or using an independent buyer account to maliciously upvote another shop’s negative reviews in order to position those reviews more prominently.
ii. Communicating Cancellations
If you are unable to complete a transaction, you must notify the buyer via Diabetic Plaza Messages and cancel the transaction. If the buyer already submitted payment, you must issue a full refund. You are encouraged to keep proof of any refunds in the event a dispute arises. All cancellations are subject to our Cancellation Policy.
III. Feedback, Disputes and Your Success
Reviews are a great way for you to build a reputation on Diabetic Plaza. Buyers can leave a review, including a one to five star rating and a photograph of their purchase, within 100 days after their item’s estimated delivery date. If an estimated delivery date is not available, the review window opens after the order’s processing time and shipping time have elapsed. Buyers can edit their review, including the photograph, any number of times during that 100 day period.
On the rare occasion you receive an unfavorable review, you can reach out to the buyer or, if the review is less than 3 stars, leave a response.
Reviews and your response to reviews may not:
- Contain private information;
- Contain graphic, mature, or obscene language or imagery;
- Contain prohibited medical drug claims;
- Contain advertising or spam;
- Be about things outside the seller’s control, such as a shipping carrier, Diabetic Plaza or a third party;
- Contain threats, harassment, or extortion;
- Include shilling or otherwise falsely inflate a shop’s review score; or
- Undermine the integrity of the Reviews system.
b. Your Seller Account and Diabetic Plaza’s Terms
In order to improve our Services, we may take actions that limit the visibility of your store, listings or ads, or that impact your payment account. In the event a shop sees unusual order activity, or we otherwise believe that your actions or shop may result in buyer disputes, chargebacks, increased risk of fraud, counterfeiting, or other claims, Diabetic Plaza may take actions such as limiting visibility of your account, or placing restrictions or reserves on your payments account, in accordance with our Terms of Service, including this Policy and our Diabetic Plaza Payments Policy. When appropriate and permitted by law, Diabetic Plaza will communicate information to the affected seller about the issue.
In the event a store sees an unusual spike in orders, particularly in a high demand category, a shop may see an increase or decrease in its search ranking. Often, if a shop sees an increase in fulfilled orders and good reviews, this may result in higher visibility and search rank. However, sometimes a rapid increase in orders can reduce visibility.
In addition, we may limit the visibility of listings or ads in the interest of improving our Services. For example, listings or ads may have decreased visibility because they include terms that represent a prohibited item or based on third party policies. These listings or ads may also be restricted from appearing in one or more features of the Diabetic Plaza Services. While these listings or ads may have limited visibility, they are still discoverable in search.
If Diabetic Plaza has reason to believe you, Your Content, or your use of the Services violate our Terms, including this Seller Policy, we may deactivate Your Content or suspend or terminate your account (and any accounts Diabetic Plaza determines is related to your account) and your access to the Services. Generally, Diabetic Plaza will notify you that Your Content or account has been suspended or terminated, unless you’ve repeatedly violated our Terms or we have legal or regulatory reasons preventing us from notifying you.
IV. Listing policy

- Unique listings can be created from scratch by sellers who offer products that do not already exist on DiabeticPlaza.com. For existing listings, sellers can easily assign them to their store.

I. Transaction Fees
When you make a sale through DiabeticPlaza.com, you will be charged a transaction fee of 5% of the price you display for each listing plus the amount you charge for shipping. The transaction fee will not apply to sales tax, unless you have included those charges in your listing price. The transaction fee will apply to the listing price (which should include any applicable taxes) and shipping price. Transaction fees are deducted from your current balance as each sale occurs, and are reflected in your payment account.
II. Payment Processing Fees
Online Sales. Diabetic Plaza charges a payment processing fee for each transaction through DiabeticPlaza.com. The payment processing fee is assessed on the total amount of the sale, including tax and shipping. Payment processing fees are deducted from the sale amount in your payment account.
When you make a sale through DiabeticPlaza.com, you will be charged a payment processing fee of 3% of the total amount of the sale, including tax and shipping, plus $0.30 per transaction. Payment processing fees are deducted from your current balance as each sale occurs, and are reflected in your payment account.
Deposit fees are deducted from your Available Funds and reflected in your payment account at the time of your scheduled deposit.
III. Fee Avoidance
Any action by a seller to avoid paying a fee is considered fee avoidance and is strictly prohibited by Diabetic Plaza. This includes, for example, encouraging buyers to purchase an item in your shop through another venue. A transaction initiated on Diabetic Plaza may not be completed off of Diabetic Plaza. The price stated in each listing description must be an accurate representation of the sale. Sellers may not alter the item’s price after a sale for the purpose of avoiding Diabetic Plaza transaction fees, misrepresent the item’s location, or use another user’s account without permission.
IV. Paying Your Diabetic Plaza Fees
Diabetic Plaza will automatically deduct all fees owed from your payment account. Provided you have sufficient funds in your payment account no further payment action is required. If your payment account does not contain sufficient funds you are responsible for paying any fees owed in full within 15 days of the date of your monthly statement, or the account will be considered past due, and Diabetic Plaza may charge your card on file or take other actions to collect funds as laid out in the Recoupment section of Diabetic Plaza’s Payments Policy. If you make a sale while you have an outstanding balance the net sale amount will be applied to your outstanding balance. You may pay your outstanding balance manually by credit card, debit card, or PayPal.
Your statement is available in your payment account at the beginning of each month, and will detail all sales and fees activity from the preceding month.
Diabetic Plaza may suspend your selling privileges at any time pending payment of your outstanding balance.

Diabetic Plaza Payments allows buyers and sellers to use various forms of payments on DiabeticPlaza.com, and Diabetic Plaza’s mobile apps and other services. Diabetic Plaza Payments users can pay with and accept payment by credit card, debit card, Diabetic Plaza Gift Card, Diabetic Plaza Rewards, Diabetic Plaza Coupon, some bank transfer services, PayPal, Apple Pay, Google Pay and Health Savings cards. This policy explains all of your rights and obligations when using Diabetic Plaza Payments.
Accepting The Payment Terms
The Diabetic Plaza Payments Policy (or the “Policy”) sets out your rights and responsibilities when you use Diabetic Plaza Payments on Diabetic Plaza’s services (we’ll refer to DiabeticPlaza.com, Diabetic Plaza’s mobile apps, and other services as our “Services”)y. By using Diabetic Plaza Payments, you’re agreeing to the Policy. The Policy is a legally binding contract between you and Diabetic Plaza.
I. Diabetic Plaza Payments
Diabetic Plaza Payments allows sellers to (a) accept payment by authorized credit and debit card transactions, some bank transfers services, PayPal, transactions using Apple Pay, and transactions using Google Pay, and Health Savings cards (b) have those funds credited to a seller’s payment account with Diabetic Plaza, and (c) have those funds deposited into a seller’s designated bank account.
Diabetic Plaza reserves the right to add or remove payment methods accepted by Diabetic Plaza Payments in its sole discretion, with notice where required by applicable law.
Diabetic Plaza Payments is only available to sellers who are at least 18 years old who register and are approved for a payment account with Diabetic Plaza. Diabetic Plaza Payments is currently available to sellers in the United States and and its territories.
Sellers may only use Diabetic Plaza Payments for the sale of items listed on DiabeticPlaza.com, and agree to ship sold items once a payment transaction is complete and reflected in their payment account. Diabetic Plaza reserves the right to terminate a seller’s access to Diabetic Plaza Payments if the seller uses Diabetic Plaza Payments in any other manner.
Buyers may authorize a payment with any major credit or debit card accepted by Diabetic Plaza. Buyers and Sellers benefit from Diabetic Plaza having visibility into payments made on Diabetic Plaza via Diabetic Plaza Payments, because it can make the Services easy to use and enables Diabetic Plaza to more effectively provide support to sellers or buyers where relevant. It also can help reduce fraud and other types of misuse of the DiabeticPlaza.com.
II. Third-Party Services
Diabetic Plaza has engaged third-party service providers to perform many of the services related to payment processing, including card processing, disbursements, identity verification, fraud analysis, and regulatory compliance.
Diabetic Plaza partners with Authorize.net, PayPal, Stripe, and other licensed payment providers to facilitate card payments and other payments and the disbursement of funds to sellers. If there are insufficient funds in your bank account when our provider processes the payment for your purchase, Diabetic Plaza reserves the right to contact you directly and to seek payment.
Diabetic Plaza may share your personal or transactional information with those third-party service providers for purposes related to payments processing.
By using a third-party service, you may also be subject to an agreement with the third party. For example, PayPal is a third-party service provided by PayPal Holdings, Inc. and is subject to the PayPal User Agreement. Apple Pay is a third-party service provided by Apple Inc. and is subject to the Apple Pay Terms and Conditions. Google Pay is a third-party service provided by Google Payment Corp. and is subject to the Google Pay Terms of Service. Payment methods made available by Authorize.net are subject to the Authorize.net’s Terms and use.
If Diabetic Plaza receives notice that your shop’s content or activity violates a third party’s service agreement, we may at our sole discretion take action against your account to comply with their policies. Such actions may include canceling a transaction, disabling listings from your shop, suspending or terminating your selling privileges, or removing certain payment methods.
III. Diabetic Plaza’s Rights and Responsibilities
As a security measure, we may impose transaction limits on buyers and sellers. For example, we may impose limits relating to the value of any transaction, deposit, or adjustment, or limits relating to the cumulative value of all transactions, deposits, or adjustments during a period of time. We may also impose limits related to the number of transactions per day or other period of time. We will not be liable to a seller: (a) if we do not proceed with a transaction, deposit, or adjustment that would exceed any limit established by us, or (b) if we permit a buyer to withdraw from a transaction.
Diabetic Plaza may refuse service of Diabetic Plaza Payments to anyone, for any reason, at any time.
In the event that a buyer does not make payment for the purchase of a legitimate item sold using Diabetic Plaza Payments (e.g., where the buyer used a stolen or unauthorized credit card), Diabetic Plaza may provide limited payment protection to the seller, in the interest of fairness.
IV. Seller Rights and Responsibilities
A. Use of Diabetic Plaza Payments. Using Diabetic Plaza Payments will result in your store accepting payment through authorized credit and debit card transactions, health savings cards, some bank transfer services, PayPal, Apple Pay, and Google Pay. Sellers must provide all required information and complete all required steps, including verifying your bank account, for compliance purposes.
B. Payment Accounts. Payment accounts are only available to individuals who are eligible to be sellers on DiabeticPlaza.com. A payment account allows sellers to track payment amounts, refunds, and fees related to transactions and seller services. Sellers must provide accurate personal information as requested during registration, and are responsible for maintaining and updating that information as necessary. Sellers will not impersonate any person or use any name they are not legally authorized to use. Sellers authorize us, and authorized agents, to verify their information (at registration and on occasion when using the Services) by accessing public records and obtaining credit reports about the sellers. Diabetic Plaza verifies sellers’ information in order to safeguard the integrity of the marketplace and reduce the risk of fraud, money laundering, terrorist financing, and the violation of trade sanctions.
In the event that a buyer submits a chargeback, Diabetic Plaza will respond to the credit card networks on behalf of the seller involved in the transaction; the seller agrees to provide any requested information to us within five calendar days of the request. Diabetic Plaza reserves the right to recoup funds associated with buyer chargebacks from the seller.
D. Communications. We will inform sellers of each transaction, or of other information pertaining to Diabetic Plaza Payments, using standard communication procedures, including by email.
E. Refunds. Refunds or adjustments paid by Diabetic Plaza to buyers for payments made through Diabetic Plaza Payments may be initiated using the refund functionality in the seller’s payment account for a period of 90 days after the purchase was made. The Diabetic Plaza Payments Platform does not have refund functionality after 90 days from the original purchase date. Any such funds paid by Diabetic Plaza to cover refunds will be deducted from the seller’s payment account balance. If there are insufficient funds to cover the amount of the refund, the balance will be charged to the seller’s card on file or added to the seller’s payment account. Refunds issued by Diabetic Plaza will be in the original form of payment, and if such payment is not available, an Diabetic Plaza credit will be issued.
For full refunds to buyers who used an Diabetic Plaza Coupon towards their underlying purchase, the buyer will be refunded the amount they paid as part of the purchase, and Diabetic Plaza will be refunded the amount contributed by Diabetic Plaza via the Diabetic Plaza Coupon. For partial refunds to buyers who used an Diabetic Plaza Coupon towards their underlying purchase, refunds will be made to the buyer and Diabetic Plaza proportionate to the amount contributed to the underlying purchase (in Diabetic Plaza’s case via an Diabetic Plaza Coupon).
Fully refunded transactions may be eligible for cancellation in accordance with our Cancellation Policy.
F. International Trade Laws. You agree that your use of Diabetic Plaza Payments will not involve any countries, entities, individuals, or items prohibited by sanctions, embargoes, regulations, or orders administered by the US Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”) or other government agencies.
G. Information on Cardholder Charges. Please note that your bank or card provider may charge additional fees (including cross-border fees) for transactions that you make on Diabetic Plaza. These fees are not charged by Diabetic Plaza and are at the discretion of your bank. Please contact your bank for further details.
V. Appointment of Diabetic Plaza as Limited Collection Agent for Sellers
Each seller appoints Diabetic Plaza as its agent for the limited purpose of receiving, holding, and settling payments to seller. Diabetic Plaza will settle payments that are actually received by Diabetic Plaza to each seller, less any amounts owed to Diabetic Plaza and subject to these Terms. Each seller agrees that a buyer payment received by Diabetic Plaza, on behalf of seller, satisfies the buyer’s obligations to make payment to seller, regardless of whether Diabetic Plaza actually settles such payment to seller. If Diabetic Plaza does not settle any such payments as described in these Terms to a seller, such seller will have recourse only against Diabetic Plaza and not the buyer.
A. Payment Account.
All funds resulting from a completed transaction will be reflected as a balance in a seller’s payment account. Transactions are considered complete at the later of once the payment is approved by Diabetic Plaza or our fraud analysis service provider. Any refunds, adjustments, or other amounts paid to buyers in connection with purchases, or for funds received since the last payment day, are also applied to the seller’s payment account balance.
Funds displayed in a seller’s payment account balance are eligible for deposit (the “Available Funds”) into a seller’s bank account, subject to any applicable reserve(s) and corresponding reserve limit, hold, or deposit delay, as described in Section B. Reserves; Holds and Delays below, and as otherwise determined by the seller’s bank.
A deposit minimum also applies to deposits. Funds will only be available for deposit if they exceed the applicable deposit minimum.
B. Reserves; Holds and Delays
To protect the security and integrity of our marketplace, the users of the Diabetic Plaza, Diabetic Plaza may take account-level or transaction-level actions based on risk-based criteria, like the criteria listed below. Some of our decisions about reserves, holds and delays may be based on criteria that demonstrates a seller’s ability to fulfill orders in a manner consistent with Diabetic Plaza’s policies. These criteria are essential to our management of risk and the protection of Diabetic Plaza and our users. Diabetic Plaza reserves the right to use a combination of reserves, deposit delays, and holds on your account.
A Reserve is an amount of money pending settlement as indicated in your payment account. A Reserve will be placed on your account if we believe there may be a high level of financial risk associated with you, your account, your business model, or your transactions.
When a Reserve is applied on your payment account, it means that a percentage of the funds in your payment account balance is held on an ongoing basis, and will not be made available for disbursement as Available Funds for a specified period of time. The Reserve percentage applies to amounts from your sales that would otherwise be available for disbursement. The percentage Reserve applied to your account is determined by your risk level and is used to create a threshold amount (explained in detail below) that applies to your payment account balance while you are in Reserve. You’ll be notified by email if a Reserve is applied to your Payment Account. The email you receive notifying you that you are in Reserve will include details of the Reserve, including the period of Reserve and the percentage applied to your Payment Account.
- Threshold Reserve Amount applicable to your Account
- The threshold reserve amount is the amount of funds you must have in your Payment Account while you’re in Reserve before you’ll have money available to disburse to your bank account (the “Threshold Reserve Amount”). The Threshold Reserve Amount will maintain the percentage Reserve that has been applied to your account. As a result, it may increase and decrease as appropriate to reflect new activity in your payment account, like sales you’ve received, refunds and chargebacks, charges to your payment account where applicable, as well as and Reserve amounts released to you. The Threshold Reserve will also determine the amount of funds available to be disbursed to your bank account as Available Funds and the amount of funds that are pending, because they are still in Reserve. Funds in excess of the Threshold Reserve Amount are available to you for disbursement as described in Section 7A above. Funds below the Threshold Reserve Amount are your Reserved funds and are not available for disbursement until the end of the applicable Reserve period. If your Reserve funds are used to cover any charges and your Reserve funds fall below the Threshold Reserve Amount, funds from subsequent sales will be applied to your Reserve funds to help you meet and maintain your Threshold Reserve Amount. You can view your Threshold Reserve Amount, as well as any Reserved funds and funds available to you for disbursement (Available Funds), in your Payment Account.
Reserve funds will be used to address potential financial risk such as refunds, chargebacks, claims, or seller fees and charges, where your Available Funds do not sufficiently cover such charges. Reserve funds that are not used to address refunds, chargebacks, claims or seller fees, where applicable, will be released to you in full at the end of the corresponding Reserve period on a rolling basis. However, Reserve funds will not be released if, during the Reserve period relating to a particular sale, a buyer raises a case against you, or files a chargeback, and you do not have sufficient funds in your Available Funds to cover a potential refund. Diabetic Plaza relies on different risk factors (and whether and how these factors have changed over time) to determine whether and how much of a Reserve should be applied to your payment account, including:
- How long you’ve been in business on Diabetic Plaza (including how long since you’ve made your first sale)
- Details of your sales (including volume and average sales earnings)
- The extent of any backlog of orders from your shop
- Availability of shipping tracking information
- Types of goods you sell (whether they’re ready to ship or made to order)
- Ratio of cases (disputes) opened by buyers in respect of your sales
- Suspensions or warnings already received
- Estimated delivery times; and
- Shipping status of active orders
Types of Account Reserves:
A fixed reserve is a fixed percentage of your payment account balance at the time a Reserve is placed on your account, which will be held for a specified period of time. After that, the same percentage of each of your subsequent sales will be held in Reserve, each for a specified period of time. Reserve funds will be held for such period and where applicable, will be used to address chargebacks, refunds, and pay seller fees. Reserve funds will be released on a rolling basis after the corresponding Reserve period expires, unless a case is raised against you by a buyer. Any funds above the Threshold Amount of your Reserve will be available to be disbursed as described in Section 7A.
A variable reserve is a percentage, determined as appropriate by Diabetic Plaza, of a seller’s payment account balance (i) delayed prior to being included as part of a seller’s Available Funds for a period of up to 180 days or (ii) deducted from a seller’s payment account as a reserve for a period of up to 90 days. A variable reserve may be placed on a seller’s payment account balance in addition to any applicable Fixed Reserve in Diabetic Plaza’s sole discretion. Account Reserves are placed on an account on a case by case basis, in reference to the factors listed above and other risk-based criteria, and are reviewed from time to time. Diabetic Plaza may deem a seller eligible for reduction in the percentage or removal of a Reserve due to a change in our risk-assessment of a seller based on the factors listed above, or as a result of a seller’s positive performance, such as a reduction in cases or an improvement in the seller’s fulfillment of orders. Diabetic Plaza may increase the Reserve percentage held and/or the period for which the Reserve applies based on our re-review of a seller account against the factors listed above, and other risk-based criteria. If we change the terms of a Reserve due to a change in our risk assessment, we’ll notify you of the new terms.
Holds and Delays. In some cases, deposits to a seller’s bank accounts could be temporarily delayed by an issue at Diabetic Plaza, Diabetic Plaza’s third-party service providers, or a seller’s bank. We’ll do our best to communicate with any affected seller as soon as we can.
Separately, if we believe that a seller’s actions may result in buyer disputes, chargebacks, increased risk of fraud, counterfeiting, or other claims, then we may, in addition to any applicable Reserve and in our sole discretion, put a hold or deposit delay on the seller’s payment account balance.
- A hold may be put on funds associated with a particular transaction if there is a dispute or investigation related to the order, for the shorter of: (a) 180 days after the estimated delivery date, or (b) completion of any investigation regarding the seller’s actions.
- Deposit delays are defined as the number of days between a sale and the day the net amount from the sale becomes available for deposit, provided the payment has been completed. A deposit delay may be between 0 and 180 days. A deposit delay is applied across all transactions for a seller and the number of days is reflected in each seller’s payment account.
If Diabetic Plaza places a hold or deposit delay on a seller’s account, we’ll do our best to communicate with the affected seller as appropriate as soon as we can.
We always work hard to avoid and minimize any delays. However, please note that Diabetic Plaza is not obligated to refund any fees or reimburse any expenses due to holds or delayed deposits.
C. Scheduled Deposits. Diabetic Plaza will instruct our payments partners to initiate a deposit of a seller’s Available Funds into the seller’s bank account on a daily, weekly, biweekly, or monthly basis. Sellers can select the frequency of disbursements from their payment account in their account settings. When a seller selects daily disbursements, disbursements will be made on each day that the seller’s payment account has a balance equal to or greater than the minimum daily disbursement thresholds listed below. When a seller selects weekly, biweekly, or monthly disbursements, disbursements will be made on every applicable Monday. In this policy we’ll refer to the date of disbursement as the “Payment Date.” Deposits into a seller’s bank account will generally be credited within three (3) to five (5) business days from the date Diabetic Plaza initiates the deposit request. The actual timing of the deposit may depend on how quickly a seller’s bank processes the request.
The Payment Date will fall on the next business day (Monday through Friday, excluding bank holidays) if the scheduled Payment Date falls on a non-business day. If a seller elects to change the frequency of disbursements, the following deposit will be initiated on the next business day if the seller selects daily disbursements, or on the next applicable Monday if the seller selects weekly, biweekly, or monthly disbursements. When a seller either initially provides or later changes their bank account information, the seller must wait at least five (5) calendar days to request a deposit into a bank account as a security precaution. The next scheduled deposit after a change to bank account information will occur on the next applicable Payment Date after a period of five (5) calendar days from the date of the requested change.
A. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to seek reimbursement from a seller in any of the following circumstances: (a) we provide a refund to a buyer because a seller did not promptly deliver the goods or we otherwise determine, consistent with Section 5 (Seller Rights and Responsibilities], that a refund is warranted in a particular circumstance, (b) we discover erroneous or duplicate transactions related to a seller, (c) we receive a chargeback from a buyer’s credit card issuer or reversal of payment for the amount of a buyer’s purchase from a seller, or (d) a seller does not act in accordance with Diabetic Plaza’s policies.
B. We may obtain reimbursement of any amounts owed by a seller to Diabetic Plaza by deducting from future payments owed to the seller, reversing any credits to the seller’s payment account balance, charging the seller’s card on file, charging the seller’s payment account, or seeking reimbursement from the seller by any other lawful means, including by using third-party collections services. You authorize us to use any or all of the foregoing methods to seek reimbursement. Diabetic Plaza may suspend your selling privileges at any time pending payment of your outstanding balance.
VIII. Payment Processing Fees
A. Overview. Diabetic Plaza charges a fee (the “Payment Processing Fee”) for processing each transaction through Diabetic Plaza Payments. The fee amount will be assessed on the gross order amount, including shipping and tax (if applicable). Payment Processing Fees will be reflected in your payment account and will be deducted from the total amount of the payment at the time the payment is considered complete. We reserve the right to modify the Payment Processing Fee at any time. For deposits below designated thresholds, a deposit fee of 3% + 0.25 USD will apply. Deposit fees are deducted from your Available Funds and reflected in your payment account at the time of your scheduled deposit. In the event of any partial or full refunds credited back to a buyer, the Payment Processing Fee and other applicable fees will be recalculated based on the adjusted sale price. The difference between the original Payment Processing Fee and the adjusted Payment Processing Fee will be applied to the refund amount being credited back to the seller. Other applicable fees will be refunded to the seller’s payment account. Deposit fees will be refunded if the deposit is returned to a seller’s payment account.
B. Value-Added Tax (VAT). Depending on your business status and location, Diabetic Plaza may be required to charge VAT on seller fees accrued each month and remit it to the relevant tax authority. VAT is collected on Diabetic Plaza Payments processing fees for sellers.
C. Interest. Diabetic Plaza may earn interest (or other compensation) from the balances in our bank accounts because of the timing difference between our being paid by buyers and our paying sellers (when our bank account is being debited to pay Available Funds in payment accounts to sellers).
IX. Reporting Obligations
Internal Revenue Service regulations require that we file a Form 1099-K to report unadjusted annual gross sales information for sellers located in the United States or being paid in USD in certain circumstances.
To comply with these regulations, sellers who approach 150 (one hundred and fifty) transactions in a calendar year, regardless of sales volume and aggregated across his or her Shops, will be required to provide taxpayer-identification information to Diabetic Plaza.
To comply with these reporting obligations, Diabetic Plaza requires your your taxpayer name and ID as you approach the VAT sales threshold or local reportable threshold. Your Diabetic Plaza selling privileges may be suspended until you provide this information.
Sellers may terminate this contract and their acceptance of Diabetic Plaza Payments at any time by adjusting the Settings in their account with Diabetic Plaza. Diabetic Plaza may also terminate or suspend a seller’s use of Diabetic Plaza Payments at any time.
Upon termination, any non-disputed Available Funds will be deposited into a seller’s bank account. Diabetic Plaza reserves the right, upon termination of access to Diabetic Plaza Payments, to set off against any payments to be made to the seller, an amount determined by us to be adequate to cover any anticipated chargebacks, refunds, adjustments, or other amounts that might be paid to buyers in connection with purchases from the seller’s payment account for a prospective 180-day period. At the end of the 180-day period following termination, we will disburse to the seller any amount not used to offset chargebacks, refunds, adjustments, or such other amounts paid to buyers, or seek reimbursement from the seller via any of the means authorized in this Policy for any additional amount required to offset chargebacks, refunds, adjustments, or other amounts paid to buyers, as applicable.
