What Now What Next Terms of Service

This Website is owned and operated by NOW NEXT MEDIA, LLC, a company registered in California and New York, which has the d/b/a What Now What Next (“What Now What Next” or WNWN).  In this Terms of Use, the user may be referred to as “you” and What Now What Next may be referred to as “Operator”, “us”, “we”, or “our.”  By using or accessing the What Now What Next Website or Mobile Application (“Service”), you agree to these Terms of Use and the Privacy Policy.

1.  Use of the Service

WHAT NOW WHAT NEXT is a collaborative network and peer-to-peer marketplace for women entrepreneurs. What Now What Next provides a platform for third-party sellers (“Sellers”) and buyers (“Buyers”) to negotiate and complete transactions amongst each other. What Now What Next is not involved in the actual transaction between Sellers and Buyers and is not responsible for any aspect of that transaction.  As a Seller, you may list any item on the Site unless it is a prohibited item detailed below or otherwise prohibited by law. 

Joining the WHAT NOW WHAT NEXT marketplace and creating a listing to sell your products and services is free. Sellers set their own fees for products, services and shipping and are responsible for all transactions with the Buyer, including shipping.

Once an item sells via the WNWN website, there is a 5% transaction fee on the sale price (not including shipping cost) collected by WNWN.  For transactions that result from leads generated by Seller “offer” listings on our site, but are not sold through our site, WNWN will send Seller quarterly reports outlining leads generated from Seller listings. Seller is responsible for reporting back on which leads resulted in completed transactions and for paying the related 5% transaction fee.

Any advice, opinion, statement or information posted to the site is solely for educational, discussion, and promotional purposes. What Now What Next does not endorse any postings, or guarantee the accuracy thereof, and we are not responsible for any loss or damage resulting from your reliance thereon.
