upXycled.com is meant as a platform allowing sellers to sell their handmade upcycled, recycled or repurposed products, or craft supplies for making these items. Upcycled, recycled or repurposed items you sell on upXycled.com should generally be created or designed by you, unless you have a clear agreement with the creator/designer that you can sell them.
upXycled can at any time decide that products which you published for sale in your store are not appropriate if:
- They do not meet above mentioned criteria (they are not upcycled, recycled or repurposed and they are not craft supplies meant for making these items)
- They are otherwise inappropriate (e.g. if they are offensive, discriminating, obscene, misleading, or if you use photos and other property not belonging to you)
If so upXycled can without warning disable/delete products (you will be informed).
In case of serious or repeated abuse/misuse upXycled can without warning suspend or disable your sellers account.
Be honest and transparent
By selling on upXycled.com you agree that you will:
- Always provide honest and accurate information all across your store
- Always honor your Store Policies and any other obligations you defined in your store (if you promise your customers something then keep it)
- Always honor your defined shipping processing time (contact the customer if for some reason you cannot ship the parcel within the promised time)
- Respond to messages from your customers and from us in a timely manner

Your store email and store phone details are not visible to customers, but your store address is. If you cannot accept that your store address is visible you should not register as a seller.
Generally we will contact you via the ‘Notification Board’ in your Store Manager Dashboard, or via the store email address you specify. However, we may for various reason decide to contact you by phone where you must be reachable within reasonable time.
Setting product and shipping prices
As a seller you enter product as well as shipping prices in Euro (€). If Euro (€) is not the primary currency used in your country you can use XE Currency Converter or similar currency conversion calculators to calculate the product prices + shipping costs you want to set for your upXycled store.
Notice we automatically add about 1% to all listed product and shipping prices if customers choose to browse upXycled.com in other currencies than our default payment currency Euro (€).
However, our customers will always pay in Euro (€) during checkout. Since our payment gateway provider Stripe will charge the customers a conversion fee if their bank account currency is not likewise Euro (€) this allows customers to see realistic prices in their preferred currencies.
Your earnings for sold products as well as for shipping costs you added will be paid out in Euro (€) to the Stripe account you specify under ‘Settings’ -> ‘Payments’ in your Store Manager Dashboard.
If you have Euro (€) as currency for the bank account you connect to your Stripe account settings, you will receive the exact amount as specified under ‘Payments’ in your Store Manager Dashboard.
If your Stripe connected bank account is not in Euro (€) you can use Stripe’s currency conversion estimate calculator (requires you login to your Stripe account) to see the current conversion rates used by Stripe (notice Stripe will add a fee for handling the conversion of about 1%). You can accomodate for this by setting the product + shipping cost prices in Euro (€) a bit higher than what you minimum expect to get when paid.
Generally upXycled.com is meant as a platform allowing private sellers to sell their handmade upcycled, recycled or repurposed items to private buyers. If you are registered as a company, or if you otherwise meet national requirements in your’s or the buyer’s country/state to claim sales taxes (Value Added Taxes or Sales Taxes which may also in some countries be known as JCT, GST, SST or QST), you are responsible to include these sales taxes to the product and if applicable to the shipping prices you set, as you are responsible to ensure the taxes you collect are paid to the correct national tax authorities in yours and/or the buyer’s country. The product and shipping prices you set in your Store Manager Dashboard are always considered including sales taxes where applicable and are the prices displayed to your customers.
In case we at some point have reason to believe you meet the requirements to pay sales taxes in your’s or the buyer’s country/state we may ask you for evidence you have done so. In case you cannot provide this evidence we can suspend or delete your sellers account.
