FAQs
What are the criteria for becoming a seller on byFood?
The products should be food-related products that are made in Japan. We prioritize sellers that are also the producer, and aim to promote local Japanese businesses and farm-to-table operations.
What happens when I make a sale?
All operations are automatic, as we use technology to decrease your communication with customers and minimize the language barrier. When you make a sale, our system automatically calculates the shipping fee, which customers pay in advance. You will receive an order request by email and when you approve the order through the seller dashboard, the system automatically creates the shipping label, which includes the tracking code. All you need to do then is print the shipping label, affix it to the package, and ship it out.
How are payouts made?
Automatic payouts are made through Stripe’s secure payment processing system. Payouts are made on a monthly basis, and downloadable invoices, stats, and reporting are available.
What if my products are broken on the way?
Depending on the delivery company used, the cost of the broken product may be covered by insurance. Our support team will help you apply for the refund to recover the loss.
