2. SERVICE PROVIDERS (otherwise referred to as "Seller")

  •  You are at least 18 years of age.
  • You are a legal United States resident.

  • You must provide all services that you offer from locations within the United States of America. No subcontracting or offshoring is allowed.
  • You will only post services which you are ready, willing, and able to provide.
  • You must agree to honor all terms of your proposal, accepted payment terms and policies for refunds, cancellations, deposits, and warranty as stated in every proposal you send to a buyer. This will protect you and your customers as your policies will be clearly noted, understood and agreed to in advance of any agreement or financial transaction taking place. This will help protect both parties from disputes and chargebacks and create a credible name for you as well as foster a trusted ecommerce service marketplace environment.
  • You are solely responsible for all communications and transactions with your customers and shall utilize the private messaging system we provide for all customer communications.
  • You agree that you are qualified to complete any propoals you make and all orders that you accept in a satisfactory and timely manner as described in your service offering pages, proposals, and any communications you make with buyers via our website and under the terms and conditions agreed in your proposals.  You shall indemnify and hold SSU harmless from any and all loss or liability arising with respect to any services you provide or fail to provide.    
  • You expressly understand and agree that you shall be considered an independent serivice provider and that no employment relationship shall be formed between you and SSU. You shall have no claim against SSU for vacation pay, sick leave, retirement benefits, Social Security, workers' compensation, disability, unemployment insurance benefits, or any other employee benefits, all of which shall be your sole responsibility. SSU shall not withhold any taxes on your behalf, any sums for income tax, unemployment insurance, Social Security, or any other withholding pursuant to any law or requirement of any government agency. You shall indemnify and hold SSU harmless from any and all loss or liability arising with respect to any of the foregoing benefits or withholdings that you fail to remit.  
  • You expressly understand and agree that SSU shall not charge, collect, withhold, or pay any State Sales Tax, B&O tax or any other tax related to any transactions you make using our Services. You shall indemnify and hold SSU harmless from any and all loss or liability arising with respect to any taxes that you fail to remit.  
  • You agree to charge service fees in US dollars only.
  • To accept any and all buyer ratings and comments as valuable feedback, we will remove any comments that use inappropriate language or comments that do not offer constructive critisism; however, you must notify us via the Contact Us link found at the bottom of most of our web pages.  
  • Service Store USA, LLC does not charge any fee for providing a marketplace for buyers and service providers to find each other and negotiate business transactions, nor do we charge to promote the marketplace.  We do however charge a small fee based on the total amount proposed by the service provider and agreed to by the buyer. Our fee is otherwise known as the "provider fee."  How this fee is charged will depend on the payment terms indicated in your job proposal and agreed to by the buyer. Our provider fee is not refundable. You agree to pay Service Store USA, LLC, the provider fee shown below:

The standard Service Store USA, LLC Provider Fee Schedule is as follows:

Proposal Amount....................................................................Fee

$15.00 minimum transaction to $49.99-------$2.50 flat fee per transaction

$50.00 to $99.99------------------------------$5.00 flat fee per transaction

$100.00 to $999.99 -----------------------------8%

$1,000.00 to $2,499.00 -------------------------6%

$2,500.00 and up-------------------------------4%

The standard provider fee above may change without notice, but any changes to the fee structure will be reflected in these on-line terms of use.  Our provider fees may vary depending on special circumstances and agreed to by Service Store USA, LLC and the Service Provider. Amazon.com also charges a small fee (known as the "capture fee") to process the buyer’s payment and deposit the money into the service providers Amazon Payment account. The Amazon.com Capture Fee Schedule is currently 2.9% plus $0.30 and this can be found at https://payments.amazon.com/help/201212280.   Our provider fee and the Amazon.com payment capture fees are not refundable.  This is because the job proposal and agreement are entirely between the buyer and service provider. The proposal and agreement is in no way involved with Service Store USA, LLC or Amazon.com. The following are examples of how the provider fee will be charged to the service provider.

Payment Terms between buyer and seller: Pay in-full and in-advance: In this case, the provider fee for the total proposed amount of the job will be due and payable and charged to the service provider at the time the buyer’s payment is made. Amazon.com will deduct our provider fee from the proceeds received from the buyer.

Example: A buyer needs a service which you require full payment in advance. The buyer agrees to pay you $99.00. Upon payment, the provider fee of $5.00 will be deducted from the payment.  No further fee will be charged by Service Store USA, LLC.  Amazon.com will also deduct their payment capture fee of  $3.17. Payment Terms between buyer and seller: Pay an agreed deposit with the balance upon notice of job completion. In this case, the provider fee for the total proposed amount of the job will be due and payable and charged to the service provider at the time the buyer’s deposit payment is made.

Example: A buyer needs a new function on a website, the service provider sends the buyer a proposal to implement this new function for $500.00 and the buyer agrees.  The agreed payment terms are payment of 50% deposit in advance and the balance due upon job completion notice. The buyer pays the $250.00 deposit.  At this time, the full provider fee of 8% or $40.00 for the full $500.00 agreed will be deducted from the deposit payment.  No further fee will be charged by Service Store USA, LLC.  Amazon.com will deduct their payment capture fee only on the $250.00 deposit payment and then again upon payment of the $250.00 balance. Payment Terms between buyer and seller: Pay in-full upon final delivery of the work. This payment term should only be used in situations where you go to the buyer's home or place of business and complete the entire job or task in-person and in one visit.  

Example: A buyer needs a job done at his home. The service provider sends a proposal to do the job for $300.00, but the buyer only agrees if you accept full payment upon completion and delivery of the work and you agree to these terms.  Immediatelty upon completion and delivery of the work, the service provider must login to ServiceStoreUSA.com with the buyer present, send a job completion notice to the buyer and have the buyer make the payment from his or her cell phone or computer before you leave his or her presence. This protects both parties as it shows the service provider completed the expected work and the buyer made the full payment, thus minimizing disputes over non-payment and non-delivery. Upon payment, the provider fee of  8% or  $24.00 is deducted from the payment.  Amazon.com will also deduct their payment capture fee of  $9.00.

You agree to not accept or offer cash, checks or other forms of payment as this will not be traceable though our system and we will be unable to offer the service provider or buyer any support should a dispute arise.

If the buyer and seller agree to payment after work is delivered, this does not release the obligation of the service provider to pay our provider fee. Our provider fee will be due and payable at the time the service provider estimated the job to be completed. Unpaid provider fees will be sent to collections and all cost related to collections will be the responsibility of the Service Provider.

We strongly suggest to avoid payment disputes that you never offer or accept payment in-full upon final delivery for work which is delivered on-line.  Non-payment of our provider fees will be result in the suspension of the service provider’s account until the unpaid provider fees are paid. Amazon.com will deduct our provider fee from the service provider’s Amazon Payments account.  

  • Chargebacks and Payment Disputes: Should a buyer decide they are not satisfied with a Service Provider's product or service, they may submit a complaint or dispute to Amazon.com, their bank or credit card company. ServiceStoreUSA.com has no control over the dispute process beyond allowing you to access to the limited information available via the Control Panel we provide. SSU does not store any credit card, banking, or tax information, this is entirely handled by Amazon.com. Errors or omissions made by the payment processor or bank are beyond our control and the Service Provider will handle those issues directly with the payment processor or bank. You are solely responsible for your interactions with other ServiceStoreUSA.com Registered Users and Visitors. ServiceStoreUSA.com has no obligation to become involved in any way with disputes between you and other Registered Users or Visitors to our website. Service Providers who incur frequent disputes, complaints, and chargebacks may be terminated at the discretion of SSU. 

3. BUYERS 

Buyer's do not pay any fees for using our Services, nor do they pay any fees to Amazon.com.  All fees are paid by the Service Provider and are included in any proposed amount that you accept for the completion of the required task. The contract for sale of goods or services is between you (the buyer) and the service provider and is entered into upon your acceptance or agreement with the service providers proposal. All buyer's must agree to the following terms and conditions:
  • be at least 18 years of age to request a free estimate or purchase services from any of our service providers
  • clearly, truthfully, and accurately identify your legal name and provide a valid US based email address
  • maintain all communucations concerning any agreed proposal with the service provider using the private messaging system we provide
  • honor all terms and conditions of the proposal and accept your full understanding of the scope of work, the payment terms and the service providers stated polices for refunds, cancellations, deposits, and warranty. No proposal can be created and sent to a buyer without stated polices for refunds, cancellations, deposits, and warranty. This will protect both parties as these policies will be clearly noted, understood and agreed to in advance of any agreement or financial transaction taking place.
  • agree to make all payments for agreed and accepted service proposals only via the Amazon Payments button and shopping cart we provide.  You agree not offer cash, checks or other forms of payment as this will not be traceable though our system and we will be unable to offer the you any support should a dispute arise betwen you and a Service Provider.
ServiceStoreUSA.com has no control over the dispute process beyond allowing you to access to the limited information available via your User Profile. SSU does not store any credit card, banking, or tax information, this is entirely handled by Amazon.com. Errors or omissions made by the payment processor or bank are beyond our control and you must handle those issues directly with the payment processor or bank.
