You will provide any ordering, shipping or tracking information to Company, and Company may use all such information to interact with End Users. Company and Supplier will jointly prioritize the End User’s needs. In order to maintain a great End User experience, every effort should be made to provide fulfillment information and maintain operational settings that provide specific delivery days as opposed to delivery date ranges.

In order to ensure a positive End User experience, Company typically expects orders to be delivered to End Users within 5 business days or less from a Confirmed Order, although the parties acknowledge that shipping and delivery times for Confirmed Orders covered by health insurance may vary greatly. The parties will mutually cooperate with each other to confirm and ship out any Products covered by health insurance as soon as practicable. All transactions are in U.S. Dollars.

If Company determines in its sole discretion that your actions may result in a dispute with an End User, Company may delay any payments relating to such dispute until the dispute is resolved. Company reserves the right to impose activity limits on some or all End Users, or on Supplier on the Marketplace (including, without limitation, volume or dollar restrictions). In such case(s), Company will not be liable to you for any transaction by Company that does not proceed or is withdrawn due to any of these limitations.

For any Product purchased by an End User without using health insurance, Company shall collect all amounts due from the End User. Supplier is responsible for informing Company of any applicable taxes or fees that must be charged to the End User, and all required taxes shall be set forth on Exhibit B. All taxes and fees related to the Products or required to be collected upon the sale of Products are the responsibility of Supplier, except for taxes based on Company’ income.
(c) Insurance Payments. If an End User uses health insurance to purchase a Product through the Marketplace, then this paragraph applies and the Insurance Services Fee shall be assessed on any Products purchased or provided. If any End User wishes to use health insurance to purchase a Product through the Marketplace, Company shall verify such End User’s health insurance information prior to confirming the order. Upon confirmation that the End User’s health insurance will cover the Product (either at the in-network price or out-of-network price), the order shall be a Confirmed Order and Supplier may only cancel it as set forth in the Agreement. Except for those Products where Supplier chooses to do the reimbursement, all health insurance claims shall be processed by Company on Supplier’s behalf. The parties acknowledge that a portion of the payment may be paid by the End User to Company up front and a portion of the payment may be paid by a health insurance provider to Supplier. Except as otherwise agreed by the parties in writing, Company shall collect all initial amounts due from the End User at the time of purchase, and Supplier shall receive all amounts from the applicable health insurance provider. Supplier is responsible for informing Company of any applicable taxes or fees that must be charged to the End User, and all required taxes shall be set forth on Exhibit B. All taxes and fees related to the Products or required to be collected upon the sale of Products are the responsibility of Supplier, except for taxes based on Company’ income.
Once Company confirms that a health insurance claim has been approved, Company shall (a) if Company owes Supplier any Revenue under this Exhibit, Company will deduct the Insurance Services Fee from any Revenue owed to Supplier; or (b) if Company does not owe Supplier any Revenue under this Exhibit, Company will charge Supplier’s credit card on file for the Insurance Services Fee. Supplier will reasonably cooperate with Company to resolve any insurance questions, issues, or disputes.
(d) True-Up. On a monthly basis (at such date as agreed by the parties in writing), Company shall send Supplier a report detailing Revenue received in the previous month, as well as the Insurance Services Fees and Cash Services Fees for the previous month. If, as detailed in such report, (a) Company owes Supplier any outstanding Revenue under this Exhibit (after deducting the Insurance Services Fee and Cash Services Fee), Company will provide such Revenue (less any Insurance Services Fee and Cash Services Fee) to Supplier; or (b) if the Insurance Services Fee and Cash Services Fee exceed the amount of Revenue owed to Supplier, Company will charge Supplier’s credit card on file for difference between the Insurance Services Fee and the Cash Services Fee and the Revenue.
(e) Returns. In the event End User does not pay Company some or all of any amounts due for any reason, no payment obligations shall arise or be deemed to be earned with respect to the unpaid amount (i.e., if a unit price is $100, and an End User only pays $30, then the amount upon which a commission will be paid is $30). Supplier shall promptly refund Company any amounts paid to Supplier for Products subsequently returned, although except for Damaged Products, Supplier may retain any shipping charges. Company reserves the right to chargeback (debit) the full amount of any amounts payable on Products returned by a customer to Company for credit.
- Subscription Fees. Company does not currently charge any onboarding, subscription, or monthly maintenance fees, but, after the first twelve (12) months of the initial term, may at any time start charging fees (or increase fees, as applicable) upon thirty (30) days written notice to Supplier.
