  1. Types of Fees

Sellers may be required to pay the following types of fees. Please note that all fees are listed exclusive of any value - added tax (HST) that may apply. See the Taxes section below for further details.


Seller Profile Fees

In 2020, there will be not be a fee to create a Seller Profile on the Streetsville Marketplace. This can change in 2021 and will be decided by the Streetsville BIA Board of Directors upon planning their 2021 budget. You will be notified by email, 30 days in advance if fees have been changed.

Transaction Fees

When you make a sale through shopstreetsvillebia.com, you will be charged a transaction fee of 4.4% plus 30 cents off your sale, (2.9% plus 30 cents collected by a third-party Stripe and an additional 1% collected by a third party Shopify and an additional 0.5% by the Streetsville BIA). The BIA must charge a commission off the sales transaction with this application service because the BIA cannot collect HST. Your store is solely responsible for deciding weather or not you are charging HST. The transaction fee will not apply to Goods and Services Tax ("GST"), or Harmonised Sales Tax ("HST"), unless you have included those charges in your listing price. Transaction fees are deducted from your current balance as each sale occurs.

Delivery Fees

You, the seller are solely responsible for all of your delivery fees and packaging.
