Is there a limit on how many products I can upload?

Who is responsible for remitting State sales tax?

It depends on the State of the buyer. Gearflow Inc collects and remits State sales taxes for the 12 States we are required to: AL (4%), AZ (5.6%), CT (6.35%), IA (6%), IL (6.25%), MN (6.88%), NJ (6.625%), OK (4.5%), PA (6%), RI (7%), SD (4.5%), and WA (6.5%) for non-tax-exempt buyers. Please let your Account Manager know the States where you collect and remit State taxes. If they are outside these 12 States, we will collect them on your behalf and submit them back to you with a report each month. The tax remittance back to you will coincide with your sales earnings payout on the 15th.

Can I upload my company's terms and policies?

Yes, and we encourage you to! In your dashboard under "Storefront," there are options to input your Return Policy, Cancellation Policy, Payment Policy, and Other Terms. Users will be able to see these terms in your storefront by clicking on the "Policies" link. Feel free to use the terms you already have in place. We are here to showcase your products, reviews, and policies to generate more orders. Treat your storefront like your own website.

Can I bulk upload my products?

Yes, and we will do it for you! Once you are approved, please send your Account Manager your export from your system with all necessary product info: Make, Model, Serial #/Part #/SKU, Price, Description, Quantity, etc. Pictures can be sent separately and our data entry team will assign them appropriately.
