As a renter:I agree to pay up-front a four week rental fee to Coco & Co Ltd for the selling of my product at the Coco & Co store located at 240 Heretaunga Street East, Hastings.
I understand that the rent is $20 per week and that my work will be in the store for a trial period of 8 weeks to begin with. After the initial 8 week rental period finishes I will negotiate a month by month rental plan with Coco & Co if all parties are happy and agree.
I understand that the rent I pay is non-refundable if I remove my work from the store prior to the end of the agreed 8 weeks.
My rent will be paid into the designated bank account before the due date stated below.
As a seller on commission:I understand that the commission payable to Coco & Co when my work sells, is 35% and that my work will be in the store for a trial period of 8 weeks to begin with. After the initial 8 week period finishes, I will commit my work to Coco & Co for 16 more weeks upon which time the work can be removed from the store if not selling.
If the item is displayed in Coco & Co and it sells elsewhere. Eg. online or via private negotiations. Coco & Co reserves the right to charge the commission normally gained if sold in-store. This covers the cost of displaying, promoting and storing items.
I agree to not introduce new product ranges without prior approval of the management team. We reserve the right to remove any unapproved items from the public area, if we do we will contact you to discuss it.
Coco & co sells on behalf of the maker, with the funds being held for a period of up to one month in our account before being paid to the maker. The funds do not belong to Coco & Co, we are a holding account only, the maker is responsible for their own tax position, GST, income tax, insurance etc.
All goods will be professionally labelled, individually priced and ready to sell and I will provide Coco & Co with an up to date, easy-to-use, inventory upon sending any new stock to the store.
I allow Coco & Co to photograph my products and use the photos to publicise the store.
I will provide Coco & Co with any marketing material that may assist to sell my stock and I will let Coco & Co know if my work is sold anywhere else in Hawke’s Bay.
When possible I will replenish the items sold, within 21 days. I will cover the postage and packaging costs for this. On return of any of my goods Coco & Co will cover postage costs.
If goods are faulty or not fit for their intended purpose the maker is required by the Consumers Guarantee Act to refund the monies or fix the problem.
