1.0 Conditions of Shop Partners
All Shops must have valid operating business licenses for the sale of their goods and services to the public.
The listed prices (including tax) on the platform must not be greater than the listed prices (including tax) for the same product in stores or on other internet marketplaces, except for when the item is to be sold at a discounted price for only a limited period of time.
You are prohibited from selling products that you do not really intend to sell, products that you do not have available, and products that you do not plan to produce yourself in the future.
Gochiso is in no way liable for User behavior on any of its services. When Shops report certain behavior deemed inappropriate, Gochiso will take measures to prohibit such Users from using our services.
When using the services provided by Gochiso, Shops shall guarantee that they properly follow the procedures necessary for producing food products, such as for hygiene management, as well as the Food Sanitation Law, the Act against Unjustifiable Premiums and Misleading Representations, and the Act on Specified Commercial Transactions.
2.0 Receiving and Shipping Order
Requests for delivery to Members who have indicated their intention to purchase a product will be sent to the Shop via e-mail and a mobile app message. If the Shop responds to the message on the smartphone app to the effect that it accepts the request, a sales contract is concluded between the Shop and the Member.
It is the responsibility of the Shop to deliver the merchandise sold by the Shop, pay the delivery company for the delivery, and perform other work such as product packing and exchange.
Shops will do their best to deliver the products they sell to Members. If the Shop cannot ship as scheduled due to a sudden change in weather conditions or a natural disaster, the Shop will do its best to make the Member aware of the situation.
3.0 Usage fee and bank transfers
For Type 1 and Type 2 shops, when a sales contract for the products listed in the service is concluded with Gochiso, the Shop is charged the rate of 9.6% of the total transaction amount of the products for which the sales contract was concluded (including shipping fees and consumption tax) as a usage fee for the service.
For Type 3 shops, when a sales contract for the products listed in the service is concluded with Gochiso, the Shop is charged the rate of 13.6% of the total transaction amount of the products for which the sales contract was concluded (including shipping fees and consumption tax) as a usage fee for the service.
Gochiso shall be able to receive the usage fee for the service specified in the preceding paragraph by deducting the total transaction amount paid from the Member to the Shop via the service for each transaction.

4.0 Termination of Account
Shops may terminate their accounts at any time by contacting Gochiso. The Shop listing and page will be removed, and all existing transactions will continue to be carried out until completed. The account and this Agreement with Gochiso will officially terminate 10 days after the request of termination or after the last transaction has been completed, if there are any existing transactions. Previous transactions connected to the Shop account will remain viewable, but the terminated Shop page will not be accessible.
5.0 Suspension of Account
Gochiso reserves the right to suspend an account, without permission, when deemed necessary, such as when Shops commit actions that violate the law or this Agreement. Gochiso is in no way liable for any resulting damages.
