How do I get paid?

In order to get paid, you need a PayPal account. It can be a Personal or Business account.

Payout's are sent by PayPal the Wednesday after you have fulfilled the shipment in the seller dashboard. Payments are sent after proof of shipment in order to reduce complications with transactions.

*With local pickup, payment is sent after the buyer and seller confirm the exchange.

Example payout: On Friday Mellisa sells a fin and ships it out Saturday morning. They update the tracking info in their sellers dashboard to prove they have fulfilled the order and on the Wednesday of the following week, Surf Exchange sends the payment.

How is Surf Exchange curated?

All items that are available for purchase on the marketplace are curated by us. When submitting an item for sale, it does not directly go live but is sent to us to look over and inspect. We vet every aspect of the listing from images and titles to condition and shipping costs. We use our discretion when looking at all aspects of the submission and reserve up to 7 days for review. It usually takes less.

If an item doesn't fit within our types of goods, it is likely we will not accept it.
