2. Description of Services:
WeFulfillIT.com is a provider of fulfillment services. Fulfillment services are generally described as the storing of a Merchant’s product, the packaging, and subsequent shipping thereof, depending upon the needs of the Merchant. These services are provided to Merchants desiring to sell products.
Merchant will use WeFulfillIT.com’s online Merchant Information Station to maintain a list of Merchant's Products for sale. Merchant will develop and maintain marketing programs, which will advertise and describe these products. Merchant will design these Web sites in a manner, which automatically transmits customer orders to WeFulfillIT.com, using the instructions provided to Merchant via WeFulfillIT.com’s Merchant Information Station.
Upon receipt of each valid Customer order, the order can be viewed on the Merchant Information Station. WeFulfillIT.com will promptly ship the ordered product(s) to the Customer.
Merchant agrees to pay WeFulfillIT.com as described hereinafter. WeFulfillIT.com will either maintain Merchant's bank account information or valid credit card for the purpose of direct withdrawal of fees due. Merchant expressly authorizes WeFulfillIT.com to withdraw payment for services rendered from the Merchant’s payment method. A valid credit card must remain on file regardless of which method is preferred and will be automatically billed should Merchant’s bank account lack sufficient funds. Merchant agrees to hold WeFulfillIT.com et al. harmless for any failure of the Merchant to maintain sufficient funds or resulting overdrafts or non-sufficient funds (NSF) checks arising from any withdrawal of funds by WeFulfillIT.com et al.
The amount to be paid by Merchant will be determined on the 14th and last business day of each month following each Accounting Period during the Term of this Agreement. WeFulfillIT.com will take its payments from Merchant as promptly after these dates as is practicable. The payment due to WeFulfillIT.com is equal to the sum of all fees for products, which have been delivered within the specified time period
Merchant agrees and understands that any account over 60 days past due from the date of the invoice is a failure to abide by the terms of this agreement such that termination automatically arises, without need of the notice requirement set forth in Paragraph 5, below, and that liquidation procedure of the inventory is authorized by Merchant, again, as set forth in Paragraph 5 below, as part of the termination of the agreement.
The Merchant and WeFulfillIT.com may at any time to cancel this Agreement provided that sufficient notice is given. A 30-day written notice is required. Upon cancellation by either party, this Agreement will terminate and WeFulfillIT.com will no longer ship orders. Minimums, storage fees, fulfillment fees and shipping fees will apply until product is shipped back to the Merchant on WeFulfillIT.com’s shipping account at the Merchants expense. WeFulfillIT.com is under no obligation to ship back the product until payment for such shipping expense is made in advance. Furthermore, Merchant agrees and authorizes that WeFulfillIT.com has a lien upon the product until the entire account due WeFulfillIT.com is paid in full. Merchant authorizes WeFullFitIT.com to sell said product to any willing buyer at fifty percent (50%) of the wholesale cost or value if, at any time, the Merchant’s account becomes past due by more than 60 days. No notice is required for such liquidation of the product because the failure to pay upon the past due account is notice enough. After liquidation, WeFulfillIT.com will apply the proceeds to its outstanding invoices and refund any excess monies to the Merchant. Any amount still owing will remain the responsibility of the merchant and formal collections proceedings will ensue as well as reporting to all credit reporting agencies. Any payments due for Orders shipped prior to cancellation will be paid according to the payment terms set forth above. In the event that the Merchant is current in its payment to WeFulfillIT.com, the Merchant may either pickup all remaining Stock in WeFulfillIT.com's warehouse, or pay WeFulfillIT.com for shipping to return all remaining Stock to Merchant.
