Rates and Fees
PLEASE NOTE OUT OF THE GROSS COMMISSION FEES WE PAY THE STRIPE OR CREDIT CARD FEES DIRECTLY ON THE VENDORS BEHALF. If you are at 10%, we are only getting 7% NET from the commission fees.
We set everyone at 5% when they sign up and review after 6 months to adjust the rates according to the usage of our platform.
The shipping fees are also collected by the site and the shipping bill paid monthly for all our vendors sales.
We want to thank you for choosing Surpluswood.ca as your wood marketplace. We are a professional sales site with 100% automated payments and shipping built right in. Without the automated sales process and preauthorization of sellers we are just another Facebook Marketplace or Kijiji. The automation makes every sale a 15-minute process without any hassle! Tired of low ballers and people wasting your time, give our professional platform a try!
Our standard fees are 10% of all sales.
We also offer discounts on the commission rates from the standard 10%.
