Billing + Fees Policy
Designer Subscription Fees
Nineteenth Amendment charges a USD $19.99 monthly subscription fee for a Designer’s use of the Nineteenth Amendment platform. This monthly fee is for access to the platform and does not include any other services. If you are interested in additional services, see Designer Services. Subscriptions renew automatically on a monthly basis and can be cancelled with at least 30 days’ notice by contacting us at info@NineteenthAmendment.com with title “CANCELLATION REQUEST” or automatically through the ACCOUNT PLAN section of your account. A subscription may not be canceled during a pre-sale or during the fulfillment of a pre-sale including the 14 day window of product return after a customer has received their product. Nineteenth Amendment will bill you for past due fees if payment is not remitted. These fees are liable to be changed at any time at the discretion of Nineteenth Amendment.
Please note, if you cancel your account, you will no longer be able to access your Designer Admin functions including past orders, manufacturers, sales and customer information.
Sales Fees + Designer Commissions
Designers who sell and manufacture through the platform shall receive payouts for any sales of their products. Nineteenth Amendment takes a transaction fee for every order processed. The transaction fee is 10% for orders under 100 units per SKU, 15% for orders over 500 units per SKU, 20% for orders over 1000 units per SKU, and 25% for orders over 10,000 units per SKU. Payouts for materials, shipping, and production costs from orders are processed the day after the pre-sale and are paid to the Designer within 48 hours if the Designer accurately entered his or her payment information into the Nineteenth Amendment admin system. If any products are returned to the Designer within the return period (14 days after a customer receives the product), then Nineteenth Amendment may hold the profit margin until the customer is fully refunded by the Designer for the returned product. Designers are solely responsible for timely payment to manufacturers for all purchase orders. When a Designer receives a manufacturer’s invoice, they must abide by that manufacturer's terms.
Shipping Fees for Samples
Designer is solely responsible for any shipping fees related to the shipment of their orders to customers. Designer is also solely responsible for any shipping fees related to any shipping or drop-off of garments to Nineteenth Amendment and to our Manufacturering Partners.
