PIPEHUB.COM only charges an 8% service fee on the final sale price of most items. There can be additional commissions sent to the carvers of some pipes as well. These may include a 3% royalty payment on the final sale price if you are selling the pipe of a carver who is part of the CARVER FAMILY. This is a little added bonus for the carvers to keep doing what they are doing and for sellers to show their appreciation for the carvers art, because lets be real, if it wasn’t for the carvers, piping wouldn’t exist! There can also be a 1% commission charged on the final sale price if a seller request authentication from a carver who is the CARVER FAMILY. This is to compensate the carvers for taking the time to review your listing and verify that it is indeed a genuine piece they made! If you are a carver or manufacture you will be charged a 10% service fees on the final sale price of all items you sell. If a seller would like assistance selling their items, we are here to help! We can help with the most difficult parts of selling your products for a 30% service fee. This will include creating your seller account and shop, taking the photos, making a video if deemed appropriate, making a 360 video of your item if deemed appropriate, creating a detailed listing and description for your items, and listing the items in your shop for you. We will then send the items back to you and turn over control of your new shop for you to manage from there on. If the pipe is in need of any optional touch ups, which may include buffing the outside of the pipe or buffing the stem, there is an additional 10% service fee for this kind of work, which brings the total potentials service fees to 30%-40%. However it must be noted that we will not touch the inside of your pipe bowls during our touch up process by any means. Whatever condition the bowl is in is the sellers responsibility and PIPEHUB.COM can not be held liable for anything sold by sellers on the website.
