Terms of Service
1- General rules of using Logoarena.com
At logoarena.com, buyer starts a prepaid logo contest (for a minimum price of $249) and designer community compete for the prize money and submit their logo ideas/concepts. After the contest ends, buyer selects a winning design and the owner of the winning design earns the prize money after logoarena.com deducts service fees from the winning seller. Ownership of logo design is only transferred after the transaction has been successfully completed between a buyer and a winner seller. After that, logo is exclusively owned by the client and designer of that logo is prohibited from using or selling it again.
It is free to create a membership account to become a designer or buyer at logoarena.com. Buyer pays the cost of awarded design as well as all related cost of PayPal or credit card to complete the transaction. We deduct 15% service fee from the sale price of the awarded design from the winning seller. We offer a money back guarantee to our clients that don't receive a certain number of design entries in the contest/freelance project. Designers who take part in contest agree to the term about not expecting any prize amount for a refunded contest. Click here for more details on refund policy.
Contest upgrades are available and subject to change. Currently, we are offering $50 to clients who want to make their contest private from search engines and website visitors. Only the registered designers are able to see a private contest. The $50 upgrade fee is going directly to logoarena.com as our service fees.
