To be a member, YES!! But, there is a nominal fee to the seller once an item is sold based as a percentage of the product. This is to help keep the e-commerce site running, updated and active. Our fees are very simple and straightforward. For all sales under $15, Footy Market takes a flat commission of $2.95. You keep the rest. For sales of $15 or more, you keep 88% of your sale and Footy Market's commission is 15%. Once your sale has been delivered and received by your buyer, the earnings from your sale are yours.. Unlike other places, we handle the financial transaction for you (including paying credit card fees), provide you with a pre-paid, pre-addressed shipping label, and we will serve as your customer support team for your sale. In other words, we provide a simple end-to-end platform.
As a seller, you must ship the purchased item to your buyer using the prepaid Priority mail shipping label provided by Footy Market within five days after receiving the shipping label. Most sellers ship within two days.
Congratulations on your sale! When your item sells, we automatically send you a pre-paid, pre-addressed USPS Priority Mail shipping label. Please ensure you use our shipping label to ship out your order to avoid any delay in receiving your earnings, as each label has a tracking number connected with each order for us to track on our end. If our shipping label is not used, we cannot compensate or reimburse users if a package is lost in transit since we will not have access to any tracking information.
When you receive our shipping label, we recommend you print it out and ship out your sale as soon as possible, as the buyer is eagerly awaiting her item! Most of our sellers ship within 2 days of purchase. Please note that if your sale remains unshipped by the 7th day, the buyer can cancel the order, and you will likely lose your sale and earnings. Footy Market reserves the right to automatically cancel any order that remains unshipped by the 14th day after purchase.
When your item sells, we automatically send you an email with a pre-paid, pre-addressed USPS Priority Mail shipping label attached. Please package your item, print the label, and adhere it to your package. Then drop it off at the post office or schedule a pick up with USPS.com. After the buyer receives the item, we release the money to you within 3 days of delivery into your Footy Market account. You can withdraw the money via direct deposit to your bank account or request a check.
The fastest way to get your money from Footy Market is through direct deposit into your bank account, but you can also request a check. Here's how to set it up: On the web: Go to the Account Tab → Orders → My Balance → Redeem Your Balance Here and select your desired method of redemption.
Not to worry! Double check that we have the correct email address on file for you. You can check this by going to your Account Tab → Edit Profile. If your email address is correct or you have changed it, please re-send this label to yourself. Simply go to your Account Tab → My Sales → Select your order → Need new shipping label. Are you still not receiving your shipping label? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll be happy to find it for you.
Check your profile to see if your product has been posted. If it hasn’t, make sure your product isn’t on the list of Prohibited Items, and if everything is OK, just be patient! The posting process may take several minutes. If it’s been over forty minutes since you posted it and you still don't see your listing, there may have been a product or publication problem.
You can only buy and sell soccer related items on Footy Market. Make sure you're not attempting to post something that's on our list of prohibited items too or posting the same product repeatedly as those will be automatically discarded. If your item has been discarded but you haven't posted it repeatedly and it's not on the list of prohibited items, please get in touch with our Customer Care team so they can review your listing.
All sales are final on Footy Market. However, we take an active role in each and every purchase made on Footy Market to ensure both the buyer and seller have a great experience. A buyer may open a case with us if they don't receive their item or the item they receive is not as described within the listing. This means a buyer cannot return an item they purchased on Footy Market if the item simply does not fit or they no longer want the item - as long as the seller accurately described the item in the listing. If the buyer receives an item that is not as described within the listing, is sent the wrong item, or is in some other way not as described, the buyer can report their problem to us within 3 days of delivery through the web. When a case is opened, the buyer is asked to upload photos and offer details of the item. If the return is verified, we assist the buyer in returning the item to the seller and offer them a full refund.
To avoid a problem with a sale, we advise sellers to be as descriptive and detailed as possible when creating your listings. We encourage buyers to review the listing photos, description and item condition, and if you have any questions, please ask the seller for additional details, measurements or photos. Sellers are usually more than happy to provide additional information.
You may report a listing that violates our policies and guidelines at any time. On the web: Click into the listing → Click the "Report Listing" button on the left side of the listing → Choose the reason for reporting the listing, the report will be automatically sent to our moderation team who will investigate. Once you submit, the report will be automatically sent to our moderation team who will investigate.

If you purchase an item on Footy Market, you are obligated to complete the transaction. However, we understand accidents do happen. Buyers may cancel accidental purchases through our platform within three hours from time of purchase.

Purchasing or selling an item listed on Footy Market using PayPal or any means other than Footy Market checkout is called an "offline transaction" and is prohibited. When payment for the full value of the item is not exchanged through the Footy Market system, we cannot guarantee that both parties ship and transact as promised. If we don't process payment, we aren't able to refund the buyer if something goes wrong (for example, if the seller never ships your item or the item you receive is not as described in the listing). As a result, our buyer protection program does not cover offline transactions. In addition, if we don’t process payment, we can't guarantee that the seller receives their earnings if they deliver the item as described.
Taking transactions offline is harmful and hurts everyone who plays by the rules. Members who repeatedly take transactions offline will have their future buying and selling privileges restricted on Footy Market. If you are approached to take a transaction offline, please contact us immediately at support@Footy Market.com.
Footy Market provides a flat rate of $5.95 for expedited shipping for all orders. Each order is shipped using 1-3 day USPS Priority Mail. Shipping is paid for by the buyer. Multiple items from one seller can be added to the order for the same fee as long as the total weight of the order does not exceed 5 lbs.
Labels for packages over 5 pounds will incur an extra label upgrade fee per the table below, to be paid for by the seller. If your package is over 5 pounds, you will need to generate a new shipping label in the app. Go to your Account Tab → My Sales → Select your order → Need New Shipping Label → Need Heavier Weight Label. Please make sure you select the total weight of your package so that a shipping label with the correct weight can be generated and sent to you.
Remember, any additional shipping costs for packages over 5 pounds are paid for by the seller and will be automatically deducted from your earnings/credits.
Footy Market sends all items via USPS Priority Mail. This means that you can pick up FREE boxes at your local post office or have them delivered right to your home by ordering them on www.usps.com. They come in a few different sizes so you can pick the one that fits your item best.
Just remember - and this is important! - you need to ship using the boxes that are labeled simply "Priority Mail". Any other USPS boxes, including "Priority Mail Flat Rate", "Regional Rate" and "Express Mail" are NOT allowed and may cause delays in shipping and receiving your earnings.

After you place your order, we work behind the scenes with the seller to get your order to you as soon as possible.

Being a great buyer on Footy Market
Are you looking for discounts and a bargain hunter? Footy Market provides tons of cool soccer stuff to buy!
Buying on Footy Market is very easy:
Explore the different categories or browse the inventory for interesting items you may want. When you see something you like, tap the item and start a chat with the seller by tapping the chat button at the bottom of the item’s photo. Or, you can tap the “Search” and enter the name of the “type” of product you want to buy.
When you find the item you’re looking for, chat with the seller to learn more about the product or to make an offer. After that, it's up to you and the seller to agree on a price to carry out the Exchange. Great sellers always deserve quick payment. Therefore, as a buyer, you must confirm that you've received and reviewed your purchase within three days after delivery. If you do not do so within three days, the order will be accepted on your behalf automatically and the funds will be released to the seller.
Being a great Seller
You have soccer stuff you don’t need anymore and want to make some money, right? Well, you’re in the right place! All you have to do is become a member, create a profile and take photos that clearly shows the item. Set a reasonable price or leave it as negotiable and tap the “Done" button. To upload additional photos, a title, a description or a category, tap “Add more details”.
You can list as many items as you want! Please note that the item description cannot include personal information such as:
The item should be clearly represented in the photos and description. We also ask that you do not use any photos in your listing that you did not take or get the permission to use such as a stock photo. When creating a listing, please be honest in describing your item and disclose as much information as possible. Take care to be thorough and accurate about details such as the condition, fit, and original price and include photos that demonstrate condition when necessary. This way, buyers know exactly what it is that they are getting and the risk of a dispute is decreased.
If you accept an offer from a buyer, you must complete the sale. This means, once the buyer has hit the "Buy Now" button and successfully submitted their payment and shipping information, you are expected to send the item they purchased. We understand that honest mistakes happen, but cancelled transactions create confusion and disappointment for your buyers. We expect that our community members be respectful of each other and fulfill their transactions with each other.
