By remitting payment to Pop of Culture to participate as a vendor at one of our multi-city popup shops in the United States, you acknowledge and agree with the terms listed below. The pronouns "we" and "our" represent Pop of Culture. The pronouns "you" and "your" represent the vendor.
1. Payment must be made once you've been accepted and sent an invoice. Your payment includes the cost of the event specified on the application page, tax (if applicable), and a refundable $75 security deposit per event.
2. We only accept payments via Zelle, Venmo, or Paypal. Paying with Paypal or Venmo will incur an extra processing fee of 2.9% +.30 and 1.9% + .10, respectively.
3. Once vendor payment has been confirmed and you have been selected to participate in one of our events, there are NO vendor fee refunds allowed, for any reason. If we cancel an event, you will be given participation credit for another event. We will only refund the security deposit. All cancellations will be announced on our website, social media channels, and via email.
4. In the case that you cannot show up due to COVID-19, you will not receive a refund for the vendor fee, only the security deposit. You will receive a credit for the vendor fee that can be used for a future event.
5. All receipts will be sent as soon as we have confirmed your payment.
PARTICIPATION & CONDUCT
1. We only accept applications from the types of brands listed on our application page. We do not accept every application that comes through due to selecting vendors that are the best fit for our brand and space restrictions. If we reject your application for participation, you will be notified within seven (7) business days with the reasons why. Your application fee is NON-REFUNDABLE.

4. If you choose not to participate after you've made payment, you cannot give your space to another vendor.
