Digital marketplace website terms and conditions

Price:  £75.00(Inc. 20% VAT)(£62.50 Exc. VAT)

Terms and conditions for a marketplace website enabling the supply of digital products.


This document sets out the legal basis upon which the operator of a digital marketplace website provides access and services to users.

The basic idea of a marketplace is that the operator is not a party to the contract between the supplier of digital products and the customer. This reduces legal risks for the operator. Nonetheless, the operator will not want to take a completely "hands off" approach, as the behaviour of suppliers will directly affect the reputation of the marketplace.

Under the legal structure envisaged by these terms and conditions, the marketplace is a service provided to suppliers. The suppliers may pay for this service by way of fees or commission, or some combination of fees and commission. While customers pay suppliers for the digital products, there is no paid supply of services by the operator to the customers.

Summary licensing terms for the digital products are included in the document. In some cases you may want to use this document in conjunction with a separate licensing document, such as a EULA.
