At a charge of a service price and price for the substance used for the 3D Model, we manufacture the 3D Model for you (i.e., print it with 3D printing technology) in our materials and ship it to you. You can also order models designed by other Artisans: Merg3d allows you to browse the Website for models and to place an order for the manufacturing of an available model.

Further, Merg3d offers other services and community features through the Website including comment box, tutorials etc. where you can get in touch with other users or share your experiences.

3. Ordering

(a) Placing an order. To order the 3D Model you designed or another 3D Model you found through our Services, you select the 3D Model. Then you can select the quantity of the 3D Model you. As the next step, we ask you to provide us with information we need for the delivery of the 3D Model. Finally you will be prompted for information required to initiate the payment. Depending on the payment method you select you may be redirected to a third party payment provider website. Please be informed that the language to be used during the whole ordering process is English.

(b) Unacceptable orders, cancellation of orders by us. If a 3D Model is available through our Website, the default assumption is that it can be produced. There are, however, technical or other reasons why Merg3d may not accept or may cancel your order during the entire ordering process, even after our acceptance of your order. Such reasons can be, but are not limited to, the unfeasibility of the model, an infringing feature of your 3D Model (see our Content Policy), or the destination of the delivery you indicated in your order. In case we cancel your partial or entire order, we will contact you via email and, except in cases of fraud or other violations of our policies, issue you a full refund for the cancelled item(s).

(c) Prices. The prices displayed on the Website are only indications and are valid only for the moment that they are displayed. Merg3d reserves the right to change its prices on the website at any time without prior notice to you. Such change however will have no effect on orders completed before the posting of a new price on the website. We do our best to prevent errors in the pricing. However, should an error occur, we are not bound by our offer and may cancel the order. In the event of an error, any monies paid related to that order will be refunded to you.

(d) Payment and price. The amount indicated on the ordering page includes the fee for the service (such as printing and packing the model), the price for the materials used to produce the 3D Model, and, if applicable, the markup charged by the artisan. The price quoted on the Website includes shipping costs, sales tax (if applicable) but excludes any import duty or taxes (if applicable). Merg3d offers estimated currency conversions as a courtesy to users.  These estimates are not guaranteed and may not reflect actual currency conversation rates.  If you pay in a currency that is different from the denominated currency of your payment method (which is probably the case if your bank or credit card account is not denominated in Philippines Peso), your payment company (such as your credit or bank card issuer) or third-party payment processor may apply a currency conversion rate or fees to your payment.  Please contact your provider for information about these fees.  These fees are not controlled by or known to Merg3d.

You can initiate your payment for your order via 7connect, Dragonpay, or PayPal.com.

Merg3d shall not be responsible in any way for the payment process done via the PayPal.com, 7connect, or Dragonpay website. Please familiarize yourself with the “terms of use” for each payment terminals.

(g) Shipping Your order will be delivered to your shipping address. We will use our commercially reasonable efforts to ship the 3D Model to the shipping address within the delivery time indicated in our confirmation email; nevertheless, depending on your shipping address it may take longer time. Any shipping and delivery dates given by us are only best estimates and we are not liable for any damage or cost caused by delay in shipping or delivery. Title and risk of loss is transferred to you upon transfer of the goods from Merg3d to the shipment carrier (LBC, Air21).

(h) Cancellation of your order, return of 3D Models.  Due to the personalized nature of our Services (i.e. the 3D Model is supplied by us based on your specifications), you cannot cancel your order after it goes into production. Additionally, we are not able to refund purchases of a "Gift Card" or a "Material Sample Kit Basic (w/free Gift card)" at any point. Orders that contain non-refundable items are still cancelable, however note that refund or cancellation will not apply to items in the order that are non-refundable.

You acknowledge that the sales contract for your products shall be between us and such customer. Therefore, any and all orders for the supply of your products placed via your shop shall be solely governed by our general terms and conditions. No additional terms included by you in your shop shall be binding upon customers or Merg3d.

Pricing your Designs

When you upload a model to Merg3d, we will provide you a standard price that includes our fees, except for transaction fees, for selling the 3D print of the design and fulfilling the order made via your shop. You determine the final price for the model displayed to customers by setting the markup for each model via the Artisan panel upload page. When you sell an item, we keep the standard price and we send you the markup. An additional 3.5% transaction fee (the “Markup Fee”) will be charged on all earned markups and reflected in your final payment slip. For example, if you earned 3000 pesos (withholding tax deducted) at the end of cut-off period (every 25th of the month), we will deduct 105 pesos (3.5% of 3000 pesos), so your total earnings will be 2895 pesos. We charge this fee to cover our administrative costs and payment provider costs.

Payment Terms

MERG3D USES GCASH, SMARTMONEY, AND CEBUANA PERA PADALA TO TRANSFER MARKUP PAYMENTS TO SHOP OWNERS. PLEASE PROVIDE A COMPLETE PERSONAL DETAIL INCLUDING WORKING MOBILE NUMBER AND VERIFIED EMAIL ADDRESS, WE WILL USE THESE INFORMATIONS TO TRANSFER MARKUP PAYMENTS. BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS YOU AGREE TO FORFEIT ANY MARKUP EARNED BUT NOT PAYABLE DUE TO AN INELIGABLE PERSONAL AND CONTACT INFORMATION.

We will pay your accrued shop markups, less the Markup fee and withholding tax, to the valid personal and contact information you provide to us via your profile account settings, on the 25th of each calendar month if there is a minim accrued balance of P1500. This payment will include all markups earned up until 11:59PM on the 24th of that month. Please be aware that if you earn less than P1500, before the Markup Fee and before withholding tax then the amount will not be paid, but will accrue to your account until such time as it becomes equal to or greater than P1500. If you or we terminate your account and / or close your shop, and you have less than P1500 in accrued but unpaid markups, we will send you your final payment on the next 25th day of a month.

If we pay you a markup for a model that is later returned or refunded for a reason that Merg3d determines is the result of your action or design, Merg3d will deduct the value of that markup from future payments. If future payments are unavailable for such action, Merg3d may require you to return the value of the markup for the returned or refunded model.

If we pay you a markup for a model that is later determined to be in violation of the Merg3d content policy, Merg3d will deduct the value of that markup from future payments. If future payments are unavailable for such action, Merg3d may require you to return the value of the markup.

If we determine that we have erroneously paid you a markup for any reason, Merg3d will deduct the value of that markup from future payments. If future payments are unavailable for such action, Merg3d may require you to return the value of the erroneous payment.

If we are unable to provide you with payment because you provided us with incorrect contact information, we will attempt to contact you to obtain correct or valid contact information. If we are unable to obtain corrected information within 90 days of our first attempt to remit payment, you forfeit all rights to that payment and any future payments generated until you provide us with correct information.

Tax Information

As per the issued Revenue Memorandum Circular number 55-2013 of Bureau of Internal Revenue, a 10% withholding tax will be deducted to your total Markups. All deductions will reflect to your payment slips issued every 25th of the month.
