Selling price is fixed by the seller. Any sell is however completeley validated only after a delay of 1 month, after the buying date. During this delay, the foundation can cancel transaction for any reason and without notifying the seller (if this occurs, seller will see it into its statistics panel into its seller dashboard area). The foundation keep 20% of amount to pay bank charges or resiliation cost. Remain money will be used to help the promotion of Dolibarr ERP & CRM.
The buyer can not claim anything to the Dolibarr foundation, even if the purchased product does not works correctly. The Dolibarr foundation does not provide any quality tests on products available on the store (except into packaging structure). Any help must be claim using channel defined into description of product, if supplier offer such a support (informartion is mandatory into product description). The foundation can remove a product if there is too many complain about it.

The product can be downloaded from DoliStore web site during a duration of 1 year after payment.
The seller can send an invoice to the Dolibarr foundation, to received payments of its purchased module/products, 1 month after the purchase (this laps of time is used to cancel the payment at the buyer request). The seller will receive 80% of gains made by the foundation and it total amount is more or equals to 50 euros.
The seller must provide into product description, all mandatory information, this means at least:
* a short description.
* module version
* name of author and licence.
* if help support is available or not, if yes, how. If no support is provided, this must appears.
* the Dolibarr version the module is compatible with (mininum and maximum).
Some links to external documentation/demo can be added, but only into the long description field.
If something is wrong, or if Dolibarr compatible version is too old, the Dolibarr foundation can remove entry without any other reason.
