  1. Fees

:: Fees Only Apply to Sellers ::

At The Dog’s Business.co.za you can register, browse, search or buy items at any time, and with no charge. However, as a Seller when selling an item, you will be charged a Success Fee on successful sales only.

1.1. Listing Fees

  1.1.1. Standard Listing Fee: There is a monthly admin cost of R50.00 per month
     

1.2. Success Fees

The Success Fee only applies if you successfully sell an item on The Dog’s Business.co.za. You will be charged a Success Fee based on the sales you accumulate for the month.

See the Free Structure below for detailed information on these fees.

Here Is How the Success Fee Will Be Calculated:

  • If your sales are R250.00 or less, your Success Fee is simply 5%
  • If sales are more than R250.00 and less than R750.00, then the Success Fee will be 5% on the first R250.00 (i.e. R12.50) plus 5% on the amount over the first R250.00.
  • If your sales are more than R750.00, then the Success Fee will be 5% on the first R250.00 plus 5% up to R1,000.00, plus 4% on the amount over R1,000.00.
