Terms and Conditions
Our platform has been designed with the aim to support small independent businesses. We offer small businesses the chance to create additional online exposure, and act as a vehicle for online sales and transactions. Each business is responsible entirely for their own storefront and listings, as well as order fulfilment, processing and refunds. We will not allow the sale or advertisement of anything illegal, or deemed by us to be inappropriate, but accept no responsibility for any items or services of that nature that may reach the live site without our knowing. You, as the customer, agree to use the platform for the benefit of your business and community, without attempt to break the law, mislead or defraud any person/persons. We may remove your account at any time, without prior notice, should we be made to believe the use against the law, inappropriate or fraudulent. Thank you for obeying our rules – Locally UK
The initial fee payable under the contract is due immediately as processed via our website. We reserve the right not to begin the Works until the said initial fee has been cleared in full. The initial fee in the contract does not include any subsequent monthly payment, the cost of domain registration, hosting set up fee or hosting or any other service unless otherwise specifically agreed. The initial fee is exclusive
All transactions processed via Locally UK will incur the following charges. 7% + 20p per transaction. This fee includes any payment processing charges and is subject to change at any time. We will notify you by email/in writing 7 days prior to any increase. Funds for purchases aim to be in your Stripe account immediately and are transferred to your bank account within 3-5 working days, less the transaction fees. You will have full control over pay-outs via Stripe. If your account is not connected, Locally UK will receive the transaction funds. We will then transfer these funds on a monthly basis, less the fees we have incurred. Additional Options stated in clause 4, will be paid immediately via our website. As a registered business using our delivery service, we will invoice you on a monthly basis for deliveries booked. Funds will be taken from the payment method on file. If that is not possible, an invoice will be raised and payment will be due within 21 days.
The customer must actively update stock and products on the website, as well as be able to fulfil orders. The customer agrees to display our Logo at their premises, and on any packaging used to ship any order (packaging can be provided by us at an additional cost). The customer also agrees, where possible, to display a link to their storefront on Locally UK on their own website and social media accounts. The customer agrees to process transactions for products and services via our website at point of sale. There will be no option for differed payment to avoid processing fees, unless the customer has subscribed to our advertising package. If you list products or services that do not include a payment process (for example “Free Quotation”), you must be subscribed to our minimum advertising package. If we feel you are abusing the site or trying to avoid payment processing or subscription fees, we will remove/not publish items to the website. Pricing for products and services must be seen to be equal or fair in comparison to other sales avenues. Descriptions, order fulfilment and processing are the sole responsibility of the customer. The customer agrees to meet the regulations and guidance regarding our website terms and conditions (link above).
The Customer can choose to subscribe to our advertising options. All are subject to a minimum one-year contract. Payment will be taken at point of booking and repeated each month until cancelled. Repeat payments will be taken via the same payment method as the first payment. The amount due under clause 2 shall be dependent on the selected additional advertising package. Full details of these packages and the amounts due for each are on our Subscription Page when available. Any sales made via Locally UK will incur the relevant charges. If your commission charge exceeds your monthly advertising fee, we will refund the monthly fee.
On completion of the Works, the Customer will be notified and have the opportunity to review it. The Customer should inform Locally UK in writing, within seven days of being notified of completion, of any unsatisfactory points/issues or any problems in the Works. Any of the Works that has not been reported in writing to us within the seven-day period will be deemed to have been approved. Once approved, or deemed approved, work cannot be subsequently rejected, and the Works will be deemed to have been completed.

If full payment has still not been received 21 days after the due date, Locally UK has the right to replace, modify or remove the Membership, or any other provided product, and revoke the Customer’s access to the Software until full payment has been received.
