The term further includes use licenses ("Licenses") permitting the use of such Digital Goods, as purchased and sold by Us under a reseller agreement.
3.4 For the avoidance of doubt, when We sell Digital Goods We have purchased from You, no contract is formed between You and the Buyer.

Given that most Customers will not require support, and of the others We will directly provide support to them, You recognise that offering this support is incidental and has no intrinsic value, and as such will be provided by You free of charge.
4.2.1 As part of this, You will provide Us with a monitored contact method that We can use, and We can direct Our Buyers to use, for support. This may include email, chat, Discord or other methods as We deem appropriate.

5. Our responsibilities
5.1 We will produce and operate a web property ("Webstore") featuring Your Assets, and the Digital Goods You have agreed to sell to Us, for the purpose of promoting said Digital Goods to potential Buyers.

In all cases, We will pay You the Trade Price, less any deductions in accordance with Clause 6.
6. Trade Price & Deductions
6.1 For all Digital Goods You offer to sell to Us, You will state Your RRP.

6.3 In recognition of the fact that if We are able to sell a higher volume of Digital Goods to Our Buyers, then this is mutually beneficial to You as a Creator in terms of higher revenue, You agree to contribute to Our costs of selling Digital Goods We purchase from You in the following ways:
6.3.1 We will always endeavour to add on Sales Taxes (including but not limited to VAT, GST, HST etc) in addition to the RRP or any other price We chose to sell that. In the event that We are unable to do so, for any reason including but not limited to technical issues, legal requirements or human error, You agree that We may deduct the cost of such Sales Tax from any invoice due for payment.
6.3.2 Tebex will aim to allow Our Buyers to pay with as wide a range of payment methods as possible, in order to secure the highest possible volume of Sales, enabling Us to purchase more Digital Goods from You. As such You agree to contribute to Our payment processing costs in accordance with the table available in Your Creator Portal (“Processing Cost Assistance”). In a situation where We sell Digital Goods from multiple Creators in a single transaction, such contributions will only be on the sale price of Digital Goods We have purchased from You.
6.5 If You advise Us of required Creator-required promotions (as defined in clause 4), the cost of honouring such promotions will be deducted from any invoice due for payment.
6.6 If You advise Us that a refund would be appropriate for a given Buyer as defined in Clause 4.7, You agree that We may deduct the cost of such refunds and a processing fee to cover Our costs of administering the refund of no more than USD 20 (TWENTY US DOLLARS) from any invoice due for payment.
6.7 If We decide that a chargeback is the result of a breach of this Agreement, or by an Action or Inaction by You (as defined below in Clause 7), You agree that We may deduct the Trade Price of any disputed Digital Goods, and a processing fee to cover Our costs of administering the refund of no more than USD 20 (TWENTY US DOLLARS) from any invoice due for payment.
6.8 Where there are no outstanding invoices available from which to make deductions, We may at Our discretion either collect such funds from any payment method You have recorded with Us, or offset the amount against future invoices.
6.9 You acknowledge and agree that We may, from time to time, retain a portion of monies due to You (a 'Deposit') as a form of risk mitigation. We undertake to review the Deposit level on at least a monthly basis, and further undertake to provide You with guidance on how to reduce Your Deposit level upon request.
6.9.1 You acknowledge that any Deposit is not time-limited, and will only be reduced by Us as part of Our review process when We are satisfied that the risk has been reduced to a satisfactory level.

7.5 We may additionally ask for Your assistance in resolving a Dispute, particularly where information stored on Your servers (evidence of package delivery etc) would be beneficial in challenging said Dispute.
7.6 In situations where legitimate fraud, including but not limited to stolen cards, cloned cards and compromised payment methods is apparent, We may, at Our sole discretion, opt to refund the payment before a dispute is adjudicated. Such situations will be classified as a refund rather than a dispute. In this situation, We will return the Digital Goods to You for a refund of the Trade Price, in line with Clause 4.7 above.
8. Additional Services and Plus Fee
