After registering for and “logging on” to your The Golden Bazaar account, you can review and modify the specific details of your Membership status, purchases and billing information at any time by clicking the “Pricing Plan” link in your The Golden Bazaar account webpage. Without limiting the following, you agree to The Golden Bazaar’s Fees and Cancellations policy.
- Free Trials
The Golden Bazaar encourages the initial use of the Services through a “free trial” Membership. Free trials are only available to first time users of the Services and cannot be combined with any other promotional offer. Only one (1) free trial may be redeemed by you or your affiliates (e.g., a retailer, such retailer’s organization and its agents).
In order to redeem a free trial offer, you must have Internet access and a valid form of currently-accepted payment, such as an accepted credit card or debit card. Upon redemption of the free trial offer, your Payment Method may be authorized in an amount up to the Membership price of the initial term of the Plan (as defined below) for which you were given a free trial. In some instances, your available balance or credit limit may reflect the authorization; however, no charges will be made against your Payment Method until the end of the free trial period. The day you start your free trial (based on Mountain time) is considered “Day 1” of the trial, regardless of the time of day you register. Once the free trial has ended, you will be automatically billed the monthly Membership price applicable to the Plan for which you were given a free trial.
- Membership Subscription
The Golden Bazaar offers a number of Membership subscription plans that may vary from time to time in the sole discretion of The Golden Bazaar, including special promotional plans with variable pricing, subscription duration and bundled products and services (collectively, each a “Plan”). A given Plan may not be available for your Membership at any given time, and The Golden Bazaar is under no obligation to offer you the same Plan offered or subscribed to by another The Golden Bazaar customer. The Golden Bazaar reserves the right to modify, terminate or otherwise amend offered Plans. If a promotional Plan is made available to you during your free trial and you elect to upgrade to such promotional Plan, you acknowledge that your free trial will terminate immediately upon submission of payment in respect of such promotional Plan. To the extent third party products and/or services are bundled with a Plan, The Golden Bazaar explicitly disclaims any and all responsibility and liability with respect to such third-party products and services. For The Golden Bazaar Memberships purchased over the phone: YOU, THE BUYER, MAY CANCEL THIS CONTRACT AT ANY TIME PRIOR TO MIDNIGHT OF THE THIRD BUSINESS DAY AFTER THE DATE OF THE TRANSACTION OR RECEIPT OF THE PRODUCT, WHICHEVER IS LATER. All requests must be in writing or email, and must be postmarked or electronically date stamped within the cancellation period. All requests for cancellation must be sent via email to Customer Support.
- Billing (for more information, please see The Golden Bazaar’s Fees and Cancellations policy)
Upon registering for your Membership and selecting an available Plan, your Payment Method will be charged an automatic recurring monthly or yearly subscription fee applicable to your selected Plan, any applicable tax and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Services (collectively, and as modified from time to time in the sole discretion of The Golden Bazaar, the “Subscription Fee”). The Subscription Fee is charged on the monthly or annual anniversary of the commencement of your Membership (or, if such date does not occur in a given month, the last day of the applicable month) automatically and without notice to you, unless and until either you cancel or The Golden Bazaar terminates your Membership. You must cancel your Membership prior to the end of the then-current billing period to avoid being charged for the following billing period, and such amounts shall accrue regardless of the validity of your Payment Method. You can verify the date on which the next Subscription Fee will be charged at any time by clicking the “Billing Details” link in the “My Account” section of your The Golden Bazaar account webpage.

You are responsible for all taxes associated with your use of the Services and products purchased in connection therewith.
It is your responsibility to maintain a current Payment Method on file. Payment Methods may be updated at any time by clicking the “Change Payment Method” button in the “Pricing Plan” section of your The Golden Bazaar account page.

Any amounts overdue by more than 30 days shall accrue interest from the initial date of nonpayment at a rate per annum equal to the lesser of five percent (5%) and the highest rate allowable under applicable law.

- Product and Venue Disclaimers
The Services include a venue or marketplace to connect you and other retailers with suppliers of wholesale and bulk products (each, a “Supplier”).

The foregoing applies universally regardless of the method of order placement (e.g., single orders, batch orders, APIs).
Each Supplier determines its own return, replacement and refund policies applicable to the products you purchase from such Supplier and may modify those policies at any time. You are responsible for becoming familiar with each such policy prior to placing an order and agree to abide by such policies with respect to applicable orders. Failure to comply with any such policy may result in a rejected or reduced return, preplacement or refund. You can view a Supplier’s policies at any time by clicking the “Supplier Info” link in the “Products” section of The Golden Bazaar’s website.
All payment for orders shall be made via your Payment Method or by wire transfer; provided that The Golden Bazaar may limit or suspend wire transfers for orders over $2,000 or that The Golden Bazaar deems, in its sole and absolute discretion, to have high fraud risk.
Generally, once an order is placed, it cannot be modified or cancelled. However, under certain circumstances and in the discretion of The Golden Bazaar and, if applicable, the Supplier, certain orders may be modified or cancelled; provided that you email Customer Support as soon as possible with a change or cancellation request.

Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications. We also send all registrants special offers and updates regarding our services. If you are a former customer, you will continue to receive special offers and updates regarding our services unless you choose to unsubscribe from such communications.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. Out of respect for our users privacy, we provide a way to opt-out of these communications.
- Service announcements
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service-related announcement. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send users an email. Generally, users may not opt-out of these communications, though they can deactivate their account. However, these communications are not promotional in nature.
- Customer service
We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services and in regard to issues relating to their account we reply via email or phone, in accordance with the user’s wishes.
During the registration process, we collect phone information so that we may call you for account management purposes. We also will call you during the first several weeks of your trial or service to provide answers to any questions, as well as to offer additional promotions only available via phone. After the first several weeks of your trial or service, we, or our authorized marketing partners, may periodically contact you for the purposes of improving our services by asking you to answer questions or complete surveys or by offering you other services that we feel you may benefit from.
- Sharing–Third parties
- Our commitment to data security
The Golden Bazaar takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both online and off- line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry – SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when users are just “surfing.”
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Finally, the servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment, behind a locked cage in a locked facility.
- Our commitment to children’s privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13. In order to subscribe to The Golden Bazaar’s services, the member must be 18 with a valid credit card.
- How you can access or correct your information
You can access your personally identifiable information collected by The Golden Bazaar by logging into your account and visiting the “Settings” section of the website. You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
