1. PARTIES AND INTRODUCTION
1.1 Order Legend owns and operates Orderlegend for Google Ads, a shopping feed app which enables Order Legend to upload the Merchant’s products to Google Merchant Centre & create Google Shopping Ads campaigns to advertise the Merchant’s products.
1.2 Merchant (who has approved the Order Legend Commission and accepted these terms (collectively, this “Agreement”) before installing the Order Legend for Google Ads App), offers all of its products for sale to prospective customers via Order Legend's Google Shopping Ads campaigns.
1.3 This Agreement forms the basis upon which Order Legend and Merchant agree to cooperate to provide a product feed to advertise, promote, market and sell products to Customers through Order Legend Google Shopping Ads campaigns and for the Merchant to pay 12% commission to Order Legend on amounts associated with such sales and any sales made via www.orderlegend.shop (‘Order Legend Commission’) calculated on subtotal basket value and on Sales Before Returns and based on a 30 day cookie window Last Non-Direct Click Attribution Model. Merchant is not charged commission on shipping costs (or any US sales tax, or other local, state or federal tax that Merchant is obligated to collect on the order within the US). The 12% commission rate factors in an average returns rate, meaning that commission is charged on all orders irrespective of returns/cancellations that are made after the transaction is complete. As a result of the original sale, the Merchant has the contact details of the customer so they can re-market to the customer, so even if an item is returned/cancelled, there is still intrinsic value to the transaction. In the UK and EU, commission is charged on the VAT-inclusive price.
1.4 Commission Rate Adjustments - The default commission rate is set at 12%. Any adjustments to this commission rate must be mutually agreed upon between Order Legend and the Merchant. The Merchant may request changes to the commission rate used to calculate charges in writing, and no changes will be made without the explicit consent of the Merchant. Order Legend will manage its ad spend to ensure the sustainability of the service and will not pass on losses incurred from advertising spend to the Merchant.
1.5 Notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement, the minimum commission charge processed by Order Legend will be $0.03. In cases where the calculated commission charge is less than this minimum amount, the charge will be rounded up to $0.03. This minimum charge is in place to cover various operational costs, including but not limited to Shopify fees, payment processing fees, and regulatory fees such as digital sales tax.
1.6 Merchant’s website is powered by Shopify (as defined below). Order Legend has entered into separate terms with Shopify which govern, among other things, the basis on which Order Legend will obtain access to Merchant data, products and inventory via Shopify.
1.7 This Agreement sets out the parties’ respective rights and obligations in respect of providing an app to advertise, promote, market and sell products to Customers through Order Legend Google Shopping Ads campaigns.
