Changing ownership of OT API Key bought in the secondary market is obligatorily offered once a customer has paid for the ”Notary” service.

Note! Only API Key including all add-ons available at the time of resale may be put up for sale in the secondary market.

Add-ons and modules for OT API Key cannot be separately purchased in the secondary market. In such a case, the “Notary” service is not provided.

According to Documents, Open Trade Commerce (OT Commerce) company will neither repurchase add-ons and modules for OT API Key nor accept refund claims for them.

There are cases in OT Commerce selling practices when a seller or buyer demonstrates inappropriate behavior. For example, buyer hesitates to pay for API after getting access to it. Or seller does not provide access to admin panel once he receives payment for API. Or he/she provides his/her bank account information to pay for orders on website using API while being logged in as an operator.

OT Commerce provides “Notary” service and introduces purchase and sale rules for OT API Key in the secondary market to protect both parties from inappropriate behavior.

In addition, “Notary” service includes OT Commerce efforts to transfer OT API Key ownership, such as:

  • Providing advice and counsel to a new OT API Key owner on the proper working of website;
  • Checking for unpaid amounts (if such exist);
  • Removing active orders and remaining amounts in accounts.

Price for “Notary” service is 150$.
