1. What is BlastofourPast?
(A)Blastofourpast.com is an online seller marketplace with an emphasis on selling antique, vintage and handmade goods. Any items or products on our website(s) or in our marketplace made by independent sellers are manufactured and sold by manufacturers or our independent sellers with the exception of any products, or merchandise sold directly by Blastofourpast through our store on shopblastofourpast.com
2. How do I log on AFTER I have created a seller account.
(A) On each page on the upper right corner you will find the words Sign In and that is where you can log on or sign in after you have registered. Registration is automatic so you do not need to look in your email for an activation link. After signing in you will see a dashboard where you can add products.
3. Where do I go to create a seller account?
(A) You need to go to the menu and click on Sign In.
4. What kind of products can I sell?
(A) You can sell art, antiques, vintage and handmade products. While vintage is defined as the 1960s and 1970s here on blastofourpast.com you can sell products that are made from the year 2000 OR before.
5. (Q) Can I import my items from eBay or Etsy?
(A) At this time you can not import your items from eBay or Etsy but we hope to make this available once we introduce a more advanced marketplace in 2020.
6. I am a seller can I make my own return policies.
(A) YES!! We strongly believe here at blastofourpast that it is YOUR business. If you want to have NO returns the buyer has to respect that. The rules are yours to make and you will have to however deal with paypal as we do not control their decision on how they deal with cases.
7. What if a buyer or seller rips me off?
8. Will my seller performance be used to evaluate whether or not my account is in good standing?
(A) We do not have a seller ranking system. We believe that selling art vintage and handmade goods is supposed to be fun yet professional. We do not want the seller to build up a nice business in our marketplace and have to worry every month about an evaluation. We believe you will be evaluated by your customers and they will determine your success!!
9. Do you hold seller funds the first 90 days of opening an account?
10.What if a seller refuses to refund a buyer for an item that arrived damaged or was not as described.
(A) The buyer must contact their credit card company or paypal to dispute the item. BlastofourPast does not control the seller's store policies. We will have a seller and buyer feedback system in place by the end of April 2020 which will help buyers and sellers decide who to do business with.
11. Your site states artist can sell handmade goods yet the category I sell in is not listed or available!
