2. Nothing in this section shall be construed as limiting the obligations, promises, and warranties of the buyer found in other parts of this agreement.

VI. Pricing, Payment, and Shipment

1. There is no charge to join Dizbe.

2. An artist who sells work to a buyer must pay Dizbe 35% commission on the sale price, with 1% of that commission fee going to benefit artists as described in the section titled "Artist Fund."

3. Artists are responsible for all shipment fees, except for delivery fees associated with return of artwork, as further described in the section titled "100% Satisfaction Guarantee."

4. Artist shall be responsible for listing the appropriate shipment fee for artwork.

5. Unless otherwise indicated, all prices are in U.S. dollars.

6. Artist is responsible for collecting any duties, sales taxes, or other applicable taxes.

VII. 100% Satisfaction Guarantee

1. If a buyer wishes to return artwork for any reason, buyer may return the artwork to the artist within seven days of receiving the artwork.

2. Dizbe will cover all shipping costs up to $100 for artwork returned within seven days of receipt, unless such artwork is returned within seven days on account of being damaged, in which case artist shall be responsible for the cost of return.

3. Neither artist nor Dizbe will compensate buyer for artwork not returned within seven days of receipt.

VIII. Getting Into Dizbe's Collection

1. In order to get into Dizbe's collection, you may apply to Dizbe by submitting a resume, artist statement, photography of work, a five dollar application fee, and an application for entrance (collectively, "Application").

2. Each application will be reviewed by seven randomly selected artists who have already been accepted into Dizbe's collection, or independently by Dizbe;

3. If a majority of the randomly selected artists indicate that the applicant should gain entrance into the collection, or if Dizbe in its discretion decides as such, then the applicant will gain such admission.

4. Dizbe, in its sole and absolute discretion, reserves the right to veto the decision of the seven-member jury or otherwise deny the artist entrance into its collection.

5. If your artwork is not accepted then you may reapply for admission two months after you have been denied entry.

6. You may reapply as many times as you desire, so long as you complete the two month waiting period before reapplying.

IX. Rewards Program

1. You shall participate in the Dizbe Rewards Program, where you have the opportunity to profit from referring your friends to the Dizbe website, if such friends activate a valid link provided to them.

2. Every time your friend buys artwork on Dizbe, then you will receive 10% of the artist's share of the sale.

3. Every time your friend sells artwork on Dizbe, then you will receive 4% of the artist's share of the sale.

4. If a user has credited funds available, then those funds will automatically be applied to cover the cost of purchasing art (if the user is a buyer) or to cover the cost of commission (in case the user is a selling artist).

5. If a buyer pays an artist with rewards credit, then such credit shall first be applied to covering artist's commission, and then the artist will be reimbursed for any excess credit (if any) via PayPal within fourteen days.

6. A user may not withdraw rewards credit in exchange for cash, unless otherwise provided.

7. Examples:

a. Buyer uses $20 in rewards credit for purchasing $100 artwork. Buyer thus only owes the artist $80 via PayPal. Artist uses the $20 received in rewards credit to pay the $35 commission fee, and thus only owes $15 to Dizbe via PayPal.

b. Buyer uses $50 in rewards credit for purchasing $100 artwork. Buyer thus only owes artist $50 via PayPal. Artist uses $35 of $50 received in rewards credit to pay the $35 commission fee, and thus Dizbe will pay artist $15 via PayPal in exchange for the $15 of remaining rewards credit.

c. In all examples, artist is still is responsible for ensuring that all applicable sales tax, duties, delivery fees, and other applicable fees are paid.
