About pricing and fees

To set the best possible price, which will motivate your buyers, first browse existing and similar deals and adapt your business strategy accordingly. Your price will most probably depend on your business strategy and other factors, like deal duration (the longer the deal, the lower the price), quantity (the more products you offer and sell, the lower the price should be),whether or not you have an existing stock of items you are selling or if you are selling refurbished items.

Read more about business strategies in Selling tips and tricks. Also learn more about pricing and fees in our Payment policy, Fee policy and Set the price section.

 

Include VAT

According to EU directives and regulations all prices listed MUST include VAT and other taxes.

Read more about VAT in VAT section.

 

Include shipping costs

We are committed to our What you see in what you get policy, which enables buyers to actually see what they will pay for their product right away and not at the end of the checkout. So think carefully to which countries you will ship your items to avoid greater expanses.

Read more about our What you see is what you get policy, Delivery policy, and Shipping.

 

Determine your shipping costs

Carefully measure and weight your package and choose the best carrier for the job. Choose the right package (letter, box..) and other necessary packaging material and determine the shipping costs for the countries you ship to with your carrier. Try to uniform the packages for all items you sell.

About VAT

VAT is a tax your buyers pay on most goods and services. You can only charge VAT if your business is registered for VAT.

Learn everything about VAT here:  https://www.gov.uk/vat-registration

 

VAT is charged on things like:

  • Business sales – e.g. when you sell goods and services.
  • hiring or loaning goods to someone,
  • commission,
  • items sold to staff – e.g. canteen meals,
  • business goods used for personal reasons,
  • ‘non-sales’ like bartering, part-exchange and gifts.

 

These are known as ‘taxable supplies’. There are different rules for imports and exports and charities.

 

VAT-registered businesses must:

 Charge VAT on their goods or services,

reclaim any VAT they’ve paid on business related goods or services.

 

If you’re a VAT-registered business you must report to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) the amount of VAT you’ve charged and the amount of VAT you’ve paid. This is done through your VAT Return which is usually due every 3 months.

 

If you’ve charged more VAT than you’ve paid, you have to pay the difference to HMRC. If you’ve paid more VAT than you’ve charged, you can reclaim the difference from HMRC.

 

VAT rates:

Rate % of VAT What the rate applies to
Standard 20% Most goods and services. You should charge this rate unless the goods or services are classed as reduced or zero-rated.
Reduced rate 5% Some goods and services, e.g. children’s car seats and energy-saving materials in the home.
Zero rate 0% Zero-rated goods and services, e.g. most food and children’s clothes.

 

When to charge VAT?

If a transaction is a standard, reduced or zero-rated taxable supply, you:

 

  • must charge the right rate of VAT,
  • must show the VAT information on your invoice,
  • must show the transaction in your VAT account - a summary of your VAT,
  • must show the amount on your VAT return,
  • may be able to reclaim the VAT that relates to these sales.

 

You need to know the right rate of VAT so you can charge it correctly and reclaim it on your purchases. If you pay the wrong amount of VAT on a purchase, you can’t claim all of the amount you’ve paid back

 

How to charge VAT on discounts and free gifts:

Offer How to charge VAT
Discounts Charged on the discounted price (not the full price)
Gifts Charged on the gift’s full value - there are some exceptions listed below
Multi-buys Charged on the combined price if all the items have the same VAT rate. If not, VAT is ‘apportioned’ as mixed rate goods
Money-off coupons, vouchers etc. No VAT due if given away free at time of a purchase. If not, VAT due on the price charged
Face value vouchers (used instead of money for purchases) No VAT due, If sold at or below their monetary value
Redeemed face value vouchers Charged on the full value of the transaction
Redeemed face value vouchers sold at a discount Charged on the discounted value of the transaction
Link-save offers (buy one get one free or discounted) VAT is apportioned as mixed rate goods) - there are exceptions

 

Exceptions:

There’s no VAT due on gifts given to the same person if their total value in a 12 month period is less than £50.

 

The VAT is charged on the combined value of the link-save items if the incentive products’:

 

  • resale value is less than £1
  • sale value is less than £5
  • cost is less than 20% of the other items in the offer

 

How to charge VAT for free goods and services:

You don’t have to pay VAT on things like free samples if they meet certain conditions.

 

Supplies Condition to meet so no VAT due
Free samples Used for marketing purposes and provided in a quantity that promotes sales
Free loans of business assets The cost of hiring the asset is included in something else you sell to the customer

Taxes

Please contact a tax professional to determine whether you need to charge sales. Dealstocker cannot provide any tax related advice. Also, we can't guarantee that our sales tax features will meet all tax requirements.

 

Fees

For some optional features and services on Dealstocker, like Dealstocker ads and exposed product options, we will charge you extra fee according to our policies and rules stated below.

 

Selling fees

While we are testing our beta version, which may take some time by the way, we will not charge you any fees for selling on Dealstocker. Please read our Fee policy for more information. After the transition to full working mode, following selling fees will be charged:

 

1. Insertion fee:

 

The listings on Dealstocker are free. You will not be charged any insertion fee, EVER!

 

 

2. Final value fee

 

Once out of beta testing period, we will start charging the lowest final value fee in the business. So do not get upset just yet! You are free to use our services until then.

 

Final value fee is charged only if the deal is closed successfully and the items are actually sold. Final value fee is calculated automatically while Setting the price of the product and displayed in a grey box below the form. When you set the price (the price of an item, shipping costs and VAT), fee is automatically added to the total amount and is presented to you as the final price. This is also the price that will be published under your listed product and shown to the buyers.

 

Final value fee calculation

Final value fee is always 1% from the total amount of the sale per item, regardless of the type of the item you are selling (electronics, clothing, books, tickets, DVDs, etc.) and the price.

 

Final value fee (per single product) = (your price + shipping costs + VAT) * 0,01

 

Final value fees are calculated separately for each item you sell and then summed together. For example: If you sell one (1) item that costs £10, you will be charged £0,1 fee. If you sell 10 equal products, you will be charged 10 times the fee, calculated for one product. In this case 10 x £0,1 = £1. You can also calculate your fee for multiple equal products:

 

Final value fee (for multiple products)  = n * (your price + shipping costs + VAT) * 0,01 = 10 * £10 * 0,01 =£1

 

n = quantity of products being sold.

 

 

Paying the final value fee

 

After deal is closed successfully, we will send you an invoice, with all your seller fees included. You are responsible for paying all fees by the payment due date. You will receive your invoice by email within 5 working days. You can pay by credit card or make a one-time payment by the due date. You will find all necessary paying information in an email we will send you and the invoice itself.

 

NOTE: As we are still in beta version, final value fee will not be charged. We will notify you as soon as we are ready.

Read more about fees in our Fee policy.

 

 

Not paying the final value fee

 

If you have not paid your amount by the payment due date, you will be charged a late payment charge (amount permitted by applicable laws). This fee will be applied on the day after the payment due date. It will be applied each month until the overdue amount is paid.

 

If you still do not pay the amount, your account will be blacklisted and terminated and you will be responsible for collection and related legal costs. We reserve the right to immediately charge any amount you have not previously disputed to the payment method that you have on file.

 

NOTE: As we are still in beta version, final value fee will not be charged. We will notify you as soon as we are ready.
