Pattern by Goodly allows you to grow your brand by creating a standalone website that will appear outside the Goodly marketplace. This Pattern Policy explains how the tool works and the rules you need to know to be successful.
- Your Domain
- Your Pattern Content
You can create a Pattern site if you’re an existing Goodly seller and you’re registered to use Goodly Payments. You can turn Pattern on or off in the Pattern section of your Goodly Shop settings.
You’re welcome to try Pattern for free for 30 days. Your free trial will begin when you select “Start Free Trial” from the Pattern dashboard. After 30 days, you can continue to use Pattern at the monthly subscription fee of $15.00 USD. Your first month’s bill will be prorated, based on when you signed up, and you’ll be charged the full subscription fee for each subsequent month you use Pattern. Your subscription fees will appear on your Goodly bill. You can learn more about your Goodly bill.
Your subscription fee will automatically renew on the first of the month at 12:01am Eastern Time. You can turn your subscription off at any time by clicking “cancel Pattern” from the Pattern settings on your dashboard or from your payment account. If you switch off the service after your subscription renews on the first of the month, you’ll still be responsible for paying the full subscription fee for that month.
Transaction fees for sales in Pattern work the same way they do for sales through your Goodly shop. When you make a sale through your Pattern site, you will be charged a transaction fee of 3.5% of the item price. This percentage does not apply to the shipping cost or tax. Transaction fees will appear on your Goodly bill. You will also be responsible for a payment processing fee when a buyer pays through Goodly Payments.
You only pay a listing fee once to list an item on your Goodly shop and your Pattern site. There are no additional fees to list items on Pattern.
See our Fees & Payments Policy for more information.
3. Your Domain
If you already have your own domain name, you can use that for your Pattern site.
If you register a domain name through OpenSRS, the registration will remain in effect for one year. Tucows will send you emails reminding you to renew your registration 30 days prior to the domain expiration date, five days prior to the domain expiration date, and three days after the domain expires. For more information on the fees for domain names registered through OpenSRS.
You have the option of enabling automatic renewal (which we refer to as “auto-renew”) for domain names you register through OpenSRS. If you choose to auto-renew your domain, OpenSRS will automatically extend your domain registration for an additional one-year period on each anniversary of your domain’s expiration date. If you have purchased WHOIS protection for your domain and enable auto-renew, your WHOIS protection will automatically renew each year as well. You will be charged for the domain registration fee when your domain is renewed and the registration charges will appear on your Goodly bill under “Domain registration fee.” You can disable auto-renew at any time through your Pattern dashboard.
If you don’t have a domain name and don’t wish to purchase a new one, we give you the option of using your Goodly shop name in a domain name at no additional charge. The domain would appear like this: YourGoodlyShopName.patternbygoodly.store.
4. Your Pattern Content
When you set up your Pattern site, your content – including your shop images, About section, Shop Policies, and listings – will be populated automatically from your existing Goodly shop and profile. You’ll have the opportunity to customize some Pattern content to match your unique branding. Click here to learn more.
You understand that you’re solely responsible for your content. You represent that you have all necessary rights to your content and that you’re not infringing or violating any third party’s rights by posting it. You also understand that you’re solely responsible for any content uploaded by visitors to your Pattern site and for removing such content from your Pattern site to the extent required by our policies or the law.
When a buyer purchases an item from your Pattern site, they’ll be directed to a checkout page on Goodly’s site that will highlight the name of your Pattern site. Buyers can complete the transaction by signing into their Goodly account, registering a new Goodly account, or proceeding without an Goodly account through Guest Checkout. Click here to learn more about Guest Checkout.
You are solely responsible for posting and complying with your own shop policies. We encourage you to use the shop policy tools offered by Goodly to provide clear information to your buyers.
You are also solely responsible for complying with any legal requirements that you may be subject to and you agree to release Goodly from any liability related to your use of Pattern and any domains associated with your Pattern site. If you receive a notice involving intellectual property infringement through your Pattern site, it is your responsibility to respond in accordance with the law. If Goodly receives a notice involving intellectual property infringement for content on your Pattern site, we will act in accordance with our Intellectual Property Policy.
We reserve the right to remove any content from your Pattern site or to prevent you from using Pattern entirely, if your site violates any of Goodly’s policies or if we’re required to do so for legal reasons.
