MSME SUBSIDY

  • At any time, you may be required to submit supporting documents for the revenue certified by you to avail MSME Subsidy

FAIR USAGE POLICY APPLIES

  • Any action or inaction deemed to workaround or overload the intended use will be immediately prohibited without recourse. Solely and unconditionally at the discretion of the company management without obligation to provide reasons.
  • To prevent misuse of the platform and any attempted evasion of trade fee, we periodically monitor all types of transactions processed on the platform and add amounts exceeding fair usage limits to billable trade.
  • Fair usage transaction limits are defined and updated from time to time at the sole discretion of the company management and apply to all accounts on the platform. While we keep liberal limits to accommodate real business scenarios, the fair usage policy does not penalize anyone playing by the rules. Hence an overall cap applies at audited trade numbers (sales and purchases for the period). None of the amounts even exceeding the limits are considered billable above 100% of audited trade volumes of sales and purchases respectively.
  • As per current transaction processing guidelines billable trade is computed as follows:

    SELL-SIDE: Executed Sales (ES) plus:

    • Orders above 120% of ES
    • Returns above 3% of ES
    • Transfers above 300% of ES


    BUY-SIDE: Executed Purchases (EP) plus:

    • Orders above 120% of EP
    • Returns above 3% of EP
    • Transfers above 300% of EP

    Note: Value of transfers includes executed transfers (both ways inbound and outbound ie returns added) plus transfer orders above 120% of executed transfers respectively

  • Likewise fair usage policy and prudent accounting practices limits the rollover of evergreen trade credits to a maximum of 10 years - which allows an extended long-term period for pay-for-use entitlement
  • We reserve unconditional rights to limit account entitlements (even without providing reasons) if any form of misuse is suspected. This may limit the number of trade-links that can be mapped, number of brands created, or any other account limits.
Open new avenues to drive business forward.
