WHAT DOES IT COST TO SELL PRODUCTS ON UNDISCOVERED KITCHEN?
Undiscovered Kitchen offers a straightforward, all-inclusive selling structure for food businesses. There are no setup costs, no monthly contract and no hidden fees… We ONLY charge you when we’ve successfully helped you sell your products and grow your business. Undiscovered Kitchen charges a 15% fee per transaction on the final product price as displayed on the website. This fee also includes all payment processing and transaction fees. Everything is automatic so we wont bother you with invoices ... all the money you earn after the fee is taken out is yours to keep and is deposited directly into your account seven days after the order is placed – it’s easy!
AS A SELLER, HOW DO I HANDLE SALES TAX?
We do not calculate any sales tax, VAT, tips, shipping or other costs for you. It is the responsibility of the seller to set their prices to include any and all taxes. For sales tax in particular, it's important to remember that sales tax rules vary by region. We recommend checking with a local accountant to understand what, if any, taxes you're obligated to pay (e.g., based on the zip or postal code).
AS A SELLER, HOW DO I GET PAID?
Great question! You'll receive payment for orders on a rolling seven day basis which means you’ll get paid for each order 7 days after it was placed. For example, if an order is placed on June 1st you'll receive the payment in your bank account on June 8th. The only exception is for bank holidays. If you're scheduled to receive payment on a bank holiday or weekend, you will likely see the money in your bank account the next day your bank is open.
HOW DO I KNOW WHEN I’VE SOLD AN ITEM?
We’ll send an email notification to the email on your account each time you receive an order. Please make sure the email associated with your Undiscovered Kitchen account is valid so you never miss an order.
AS A SELLER, WHAT HAPPENS WHEN ONE OF MY ITEMS SELLS OUT?
Each time you add an item to Undiscovered Kitchen you’ll be asked to set the quantity of products you have in stock. As you sell your items we’ll count down and mark your item as “SOLD OUT” when you’ve sold that many items. We’ll send you an email to let you know when you’ve sold out of any items and remind you to add more!
AS A SELLER, HOW DO I SHIP AND COMPLETE MY ORDER?
Each time you receive an order we’ll send you the customer’s shipping address and include all order details in your seller dashboard under "MANAGE MY ORDERS". It is the responsibility of the sellers to ship each order directly to their customers using their preferred shipping method. When adding items you’ll have the option to offer express 2 day shipping and international shipping on all items - If your customer chooses express shipping or if it’s an international order, you’ll see this information in the order details as well. Once you’ve shipped the order to the customer, log into your Undiscovered Kitchen account and mark the order as “SHIPPED” and include shipping details.
DO SELLERS NEED TO PROVIDE A TRACKING NUMBER FOR SHIPPED ITEMS?
Yes – After you ship an order you’ll have to log into your account and mark the order as SHIPPED under “MANAGE MY ORDERS” in your dashboard. Here you’ll need to provide the order tracking number and shipping method. Once you add the tracking number to your order, your customer will be notified that the product has shipped and the status of the order will change to “SHIPPED.” We want all of your customers to shop with confidence and security – one way to make sure they feel comfortable while shopping is to provide them with a tracking number for each of their orders.
