MarketStop Merchant fee Itinerary
MarketStop currently collects a 10% share of sale in any category across the board and any fees you are notified of by MarketStop (such as promotional fees that MarketStop may provide from time to time). This does not apply to all merchants, such as warranty providers and other similar service providers. These merchants will continue to pay their shares in consonance with current established percentages per category.
MONTHLY subscription fee

Merchants pay a finders fee on each item sold. All categories at the current time have a 10% fee across the board. Please note that this is subject to change in the future.
For all products, MarketStop deducts the 10% fee calculated on the total sales price, excluding any taxes calculated per state and federal law. The total sales price is the total amount paid by the shopper, including the item price and any delivery or gift wrapping charges.
- Goldstar Merchant Plan – 10% per-item, regardless of category (subject to future change)
- Individual Merchant Plan – 10% per-item, regardless of category (subject to future change)
When your item sells, MarketStop collects the amount paid by the shopper (including the item price and any shipping, gift wrap, or other charges). Note that third-party merchants set their own shipping cost, as long as it is fair and reasonable. Unsubstantiated shipping costs are grounds for merchant account suspension, temporary revocation, or outright termination. MarketStop will retain their percentage share, and the rest will be held until withdrawal requirements have been met. Then the merchant may request direct payment to their registered bank account. Only Goldstar Merchants may offer gift wrapping services.
Not currently, but in the future, merchants will also pay a closing fee of $1.50 per media item that is sold. Media categories include physical Books, DVD, Music, Software & Computer/Video Games, and Video Game Consoles.
