2. Description of Services - Customers
Our site Rise Creatives has a dedicated shopping area which allows you (‘Customer’) to order products from our Sellers through us. We accept orders as agents on behalf of our Sellers. When an order is placed the resulting legal contract is between you and the Seller and is subject to these terms and conditions and to the terms and conditions of the Seller, which they will advise you of on their individual shop policies page or product page. You should review all terms and conditions applying to the transaction.
We cannot give any undertaking, that goods or services you purchase from Sellers through the Site will be of satisfactory quality, and any such warranties are DISCLAIMED by us absolutely. This DISCLAIMER does not affect your statutory rights against the Seller. Where you order goods through the Site we may disclose your customer information related to that transaction to the relevant Seller.
We do not review or control, and are not responsible in any way for, listings provided by Sellers and at no time do we possess any items offered for sale through the Site. You use the Rise Creatives service at your own risk.

4. Buying Art, Design and Craft Work
Placing an Order
Each order you place shall be deemed to be an offer by you to purchase the goods specified within it subject to these Terms & Conditions and any additional terms and conditions notified to you by the Seller.
When a Customer purchases an item/item(s) in the shop, Rise Creatives the Customer and the Seller each receive an email outlining the item(s) purchased. The Seller will dispatch the item(s) directly to the Customer. Customers must inspect any item(s) purchased from a Seller immediately upon receipt to ensure that it accords with any description given by the Seller in the item's listing.
All payment transactions are carried out using PayPal only, our online payment facility. All prices are in euro (€), and are payable in euro (€), plus any applicable taxes.
The Rise Creatives site uses PayPal (http://www.paypal.com/ie), a secure payment processor for the safe collection of your payment details.
In order to check that your card is not being used fraudulently, PayPal carries out a series of security checks with your bank to verify your details and authorise your purchase. The authorisation of the transaction will only last for a set period of time, and your account will be debited immediately if successful. Therefore, for pre-ordered and made-to-order items your account may have been debited well in advance of you receiving your goods. However, please remember that any orders can be cancelled during our 7-day cooling off period, and that in such instances a full refund is guaranteed subject to the terms described in our Returns and Refunds Policy (which you can read on our site) and the Returns and Refunds policy for each Seller (which you can read in their shop policy pages). There may be exceptions to the Returns policies for made-to-order items.
All records of orders are automatically kept within the Customer Account area. If you have any queries regarding your order please contact the Seller directly in the first instance. If you are still not satisfied you can contact Rise Creatives support through our contact form or by telephone. All details can be found on our site.
All orders placed through our website will be subject to our acceptance of the order, and all goods are sold subject to availability. We may refuse to process a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any third party by reason of so refusing or by reason of unwinding or suspending any transaction after processing has begun.
Your shopping bag on the Site displays the goods you have chosen. When you proceed to the checkout, details of your purchases will be listed together with post and packing costs and any applicable discounts. The delivery costs for each Seller will vary according to the delivery methods they offer. Any delivery times quoted are estimates only, based on availability and normal delivery time in working days. All orders are shipped by the Sellers.
Rise Creatives and our Sellers would like you to be happy with your purchase(s) however, in circumstances where a Customer wishes to cancel an order or return a product the following points will guide you through the process.
If you change your mind you can cancel the order within 7 working days by emailing orders[at]risecreatives[dot]ie. (For more information on our 7 day cooling off period see below). If the item has already been dispatched you can return it to the Seller in accordance with the Seller’s returns policy.
We offer a 30-day returns policy, whereby you have up to 30 days from receipt of your goods to return item(s) for any reason.
Exceptions do apply where items are personalised, custom-made or commissioned at point of sale. We are sorry but made-to-order items, earrings and personal items are non-refundable unless faulty. Please refer to individual Seller’s returns policy before ordering if you are unsure.
Exchanges can only be made with the Seller who made the item being returned and are subject to stock or material availability.
The cost of returning the item will be at your expense. Where an item is agreed to be faulty, the cost of this returns postage will be refunded along with the value of the item returned and the delivery charge. You must obtain proof of postage in order to receive a refund for the postage cost for a faulty item.
Where a return is acceptable, a full refund (including p&p fees if the product is deemed faulty) will only be made via our payment provider PayPal to the credit or debit card used to place the order. Refunds can only be made by Rise Creatives via our online payments system, PayPal.
- If returning an item(s) under the 30-day returns guarantee, please complete our Return Request form prior to sending the item back to the Seller. This form needs to be completed before a refund can be authorised and processed. By completing the form Rise Creatives can locate your order details and contact the Seller. It also allows us to understand your reasons for returning the goods and to monitor quality and Customer service.
- Once the form has been completed and we have contacted the Seller regarding the return and the return does not breach the Returns Policy of the site or the individual Seller’s Returns Policy, you need to return the item(s) in their original condition, with labels still attached and with original packaging intact and in resaleable condition.
- Please return the goods appropriately packed and securely to the Seller. The Seller’s address will be sent to you.
- When the Seller has received and checked the item(s), and there has been no error on our part we will refund only the cost of the item. The refund will only be made via our payment provider PayPal to the credit or debit card used to place the order. Refunds can only be made by Rise Creatives via our online payments system PayPal. We will send you confirmation of the refund via email. The cost of returning the item will be at your expense.
- Where an item is agreed to be faulty, the cost of the returns postage will be refunded along with the value of the item returned and the delivery charge for that item. You must obtain proof of postage in order to receive a refund for the postage for a faulty item.
- Refunds or exchanges will be made to you within 28 days of receipt of the returned goods, as long as you have followed all of the procedures and timeframes above, and conditional upon stock availability.

- Where you are returning an item that was part of a larger order, we will refund the cost of the item and the delivery charge for that item.

Once your work has been approved we will forward details regarding joining and payment options. One of the objectives of Rise Creatives is to provide a highly professional website.

When you become a member you agree that all the information you provide is true and complete. You agree to pay the commission fees and annual membership fee (where applicable) and abide by the Terms and Conditions like any other user. Rise Creatives reserves the right to change the amount of, or basis for determining, any fees or charges for services we provide and to institute new fees, charges or terms upon prior notice to members.

Sellers must create reasonable policies in good faith and must abide by such policies. All shop policies must comply with Rise Creatives site-wide policies. Sellers are responsible for enforcing their own reasonable shop policies. Rise Creatives reserves the right to request that a Seller modify a shop policy.
8. Selling Art, Design and Craft Work
When a Buyer makes a purchase of items listed on the Site for Sale through PayPal, the amount ("Payment Transaction") is deposited to a dedicated Rise Creatives PayPal Account, and funds are periodically transferred to the Seller's designated PayPal Account ("Seller's Payment Account"). A buyer may authorise a Payment Transaction with any major credit or debit card accepted by PayPal. Payment Transactions can only be deposited into PayPal accounts. Rise Creatives is not the purchaser of the Seller's goods. The Seller will resolve any dispute directly with the Buyer or with the assistance of an official Rise Creatives Representative. Sellers must provide us with true and accurate information when registering and must maintain and update that information as applicable. Sellers must not impersonate any person or use a name he or she is not legally authorised to use.
The Seller is responsible for shipping orders to a customer. Once payment has been received by Rise Creatives the seller will be contacted by a member of the Rise Creatives team instructing the Seller to post the order to the customer. Once the order has been shipped the Seller must log into the Sellers Administration area and mark the order as complete so the customer is made aware that the item has been dispatched.
The Rise Creatives site is generally available seven (7) days per week, twenty-four (24) hours per day, except for scheduled downtime due to system maintenance. We can transfer earnings only on a Business Day. For purposes of this Agreement, a Business Day is a Monday through Friday, excluding bank holidays in the Republic of Ireland. For each order transaction the Seller receives an Order Invoice from Rise Creatives.
All balances for a given 30-day period will be reflected in Rise Creatives monthly Payment Notification document to the Seller, sent via email. Rise Creatives will initiate a transfer to the Seller's Account on each Payment Date for the total amount of Payment Transactions received from buyers' authorised credit or debit card transactions for the Seller, less any refunds or fees incurred, or for funds otherwise received for the Seller since the last Payment Date. The amount of the fees for Payment Transactions will be confirmed in a Payment Notification, which is emailed to the Seller, each month.
Transfers to the Seller's Account will generally be made within five Business Days of the date we initiate the transfer.
As a security measure, we may, but are not required to, impose transaction limits on some or all Buyers and Sellers relating to the value of any transaction or disbursement, the cumulative value of all transactions or disbursements during a period of time, or the number of transactions per day or other period of time. We will not be liable to any Seller: (i) if we do not proceed with a transaction or disbursement that would exceed any limit established by us for a security reason, or (ii) if we permit a buyer to withdraw from a transaction because the Payment Service is unavailable following the commencement of a transaction.
If we reasonably conclude, based on information available to us, that a Seller's actions and/or performance in connection with the Services may result in a significant number of buyer disputes, chargebacks or other claims, we reserve the right to delay initiating the transfer of Payment Transaction credits to a Seller's Bank Account (or sending paper cheques) for the shorter of either 30 days following the initial date of suspension or completion of an investigation regarding Buyer disputes, chargebacks or other claims.
We reserve the right to delay initiating the Payment Transaction transfer to a Seller's bank account (or sending paper cheques) pending an investigation if we, in our sole discretion, believe the buyer or the Seller may have breached this Agreement or terms and conditions. We may refuse to transfer any Payment Transactions to the Seller and may instead maintain such amount in a trust account or may return such amount to the buyer. We will not be liable to the Seller if we act in accordance with the provisions of this Section.
All notices will be sent by e-mail or will be posted on the Site. We will send notices to the Seller at the e-mail address maintained in the Rise Creatives records for the Seller, which the Seller can update using their Seller Account. The Seller will monitor his or her e-mail messages frequently to ensure awareness of any notices sent by us, and ensure that such messages are not caught by the Seller's junk-email filters. The Seller will send notices to us at our current e-mail address published on our Site. E-mail notices are deemed written notices for all purposes for which written notices may be required. E-mail notices are deemed received the Business Day after transmission if properly addressed to the intended recipient. If not sent by e-mail, notice may be provided in writing and posted to the address at the contact details at the end of these Terms and Conditions. Posted mail is deemed received three Business Days after it is posted.
We may refuse service to anyone for any reason. We may earn interest or other compensation from the balances in our bank accounts that result from the timing difference between our being paid by a Buyer and our payment of the Payment Transaction to the Seller from our bank account. We reserve the right to seek reimbursement from the Seller if we, in our sole discretion, decide to reimburse a buyer, provide a refund to the buyer if the Seller cannot promptly deliver the goods, discover erroneous or duplicate transactions, or receive a chargeback from the buyer's credit card issuer for the amount of the buyer's purchase from the Seller. We may obtain such reimbursement by deducting from future payments owed to the Seller, reversing any transfer to the Seller's bank account, charging the Seller's credit card, or seeking such reimbursement from the Seller by any other lawful means.
Products are offered by Sellers for sale at a fixed price ("Sales"). The Seller is obliged to sell the items at the listed price to Buyers who meet the Seller's terms. Unless otherwise agreed by us with the Seller in advance in writing, the price of any items sold (including the applicable delivery charge) are displayed inclusive of any VAT and other taxes which may be applicable and Sellers may not charge or seek to charge the buyer for any VAT or other taxes which are additional to the price displayed for the item on the Site.
Customers may purchase an item for Sale by clicking on the "Add to Bag" button on the relevant item's page. When a Customer has finished browsing the Buyer must then follow the necessary "Checkout" procedure in order to purchase the item. Multiple items can be added to the Buyer's "Bag" and purchased in one single checkout procedure.
The Seller's listing of an item for Sale constitutes an offer to each participant to purchase the item at that price and the act of clicking on the "Add to Bag" button by a participant constitutes acceptance of that offer. Such acceptance will become effective on receipt by the Site of such act. A Seller may retract an item listed for Sale at any time but is bound by any offers accepted prior to the retraction.
Shipping/Delivery charges must be set by the Seller in the seller’s administration area in the Shipping Charges section. Rise Creatives is not responsible if shipping charges are not set correctly by the Seller. For items listed for sale, Sellers may only charge Buyers a pre-determined delivery charge, which they set in the Shipping Charge section of their shop. They must also specify said Shipping/Delivery charge on the Delivery charge policy page and each product page in their shop area, whereby this information is provided solely for the customers' information.
By listing an item for sale you represent a warrant to prospective buyers that you are the true owner of the item or are properly authorised to sell the item by the true owner and are able to transfer good title to the item free from any third party claims, liens or encumbrances; and the listing is accurate, current and complete and is not misleading or otherwise deceptive; and the item is made to a high quality and is safe.
Sellers will determine the purchase price for each of their items offered for sale on the Site; all Sellers will ensure that the purchase price and any other type of offer offered for sale on the Site are at least as favourable to consumers as the terms of sale upon which the Seller offers or sells such items through its own or any of its other online sales channels other than the Site, after taking into consideration all discounts, sales, rebates and other promotional offers or business practices.
You further warrant that the sale or distribution of the item is not in breach of applicable law.
By listing an item on the Site for Sale, you agree to pay the fees as set-out by Rise Creatives. Fees include commission fees and membership fees (where applicable). These fees are paid in euro (€) and are subject to change. However, the fees in effect on the date of listing the relevant item for Sale will govern the transaction.
By listing an item for Sale on the Site, you authorise Rise Creatives to deduct the amount from the funds owed to you from your completed Sales, for all and any amounts due in the manner and at the times set out by Rise Creatives.
VAT on Seller Fees
The Seller fees are subject to VAT where applicable and will be paid by the Seller at the time of payment of the corresponding fees.
Do not send any pieces of work to Rise Creatives. It is up to you to organise your images for your web space and your shop according to the following specifications.
Web Space and Shop
All images should be a jpeg or png file format at 72dpi, where possible images should be square - 567px (20cm). They should be sharp and in focus; blurry images will not sell your products. Place your images in context for example a necklace should be either on a person or a bust. Take the image on a light background to ensure all detail is visible.
The Seller may terminate its participation at any time by giving notice to us in writing, and we may terminate the Seller's participation in the Service at any time by giving notice to the Seller in writing. Upon termination, the Seller must pay us whatever fees were incurred prior to the effective date of the termination. Also upon termination, any pending transactions will be cancelled.
