Advertising & Marketing Policy

This policy is a part of our Terms of Use. By using any of Hello Hali’s advertising services, you’re agreeing to this policy and our Terms of Use.

This Advertising & Marketing Policy may change over time, per the terms of Hello Hali’s Terms of Use. By continuing to use Hello Hali’s services you agree to those changes.

1. Ads on Hello Hali

Sellers can purchase paid advertising on Hello Hali through the Seller Dashboard. Hello Hali Ads display a seller’s listings or shops prominently on Hello Hali’s websites and mobile apps where applicable. Hello Hali Ads are displayed in one or more locations, such as users’ search results.  The frequency of impressions depends on the number of advertisers.  We give all advertisers an equal chance to display their ads for the entire duration of their advertisement commitment.  However, we cannot guarantee than an Advertisement will be displayed equally on all the pages. It is on a best effort basis, depending on advertisement slot availability and on the number of concurrent advertisers.

A. Purchasing Hello Hali Ads

Hello Hali Ads are based on a fixed fee for ad space on Hello Hali’s properties. Therefore, the actual costs you incur is fixed for the duration that is determined by Hello Hali.  We reserve the right to change the fees for the ad space and/or the duration at any time at our own discretion.

Sellers who have active ads running during the period of change will not be affected, until their current ad commitment expires.  The new fees and/or duration will apply for any consequent commitment. 

Hello Hali reserves the rights to start accounting for its Ads fees on a cost-per-click (or “CPC”) basis via a bidding system where you are responsible for paying for any clicks your ad receives. This means that you will be charged only when your ad is clicked, not simply when it is displayed. By providing a budget for Hello Hali to enter bids on your behalf (or providing bid amounts yourself if available), you agree to pay any amount up to and including the bid amount for a click on your ad. Your daily maximum budget can be set at or above a predetermined minimum determined by Hello Hali and you will not be charged more than your maximum budget on a daily basis. All Ads Fees and Bids are made in Canadian Dollars (CAD). You will be notified of any Ad policy or mechanism change with a 30 days notice before these changes take effect.

3. Shop-Specific Promotions

A. Sales and Coupons

Sellers on Hello Hali may choose to offer promotions specifically for their own shops and/or listings. Hello Hali currently offers two promotional tools: Sales and Coupons.

A Sale is a promotion that offers free shipping or discounts on your listing price(s) by a percentage. You can run a sale on a single listing or on multiple listings. Sales are public and will be displayed to all buyers, or, if certain seller-selected features are available, to a selected category of buyers. On occasion, Hello Hali may aggregate Sales and promote them through our websites, apps, and emails. When you run a Sale, you are obliged to follow not just theHello Hali Terms but all laws (including consumer protection rules) that apply to sales and promotions in your jurisdiction.

A Coupon is a code that may be redeemed for a discount on an item or free shipping. Coupons are not displayed publicly; as a seller, you may create, promote and distribute Coupons at your discretion. Please note, however, that a Coupon code can be used by any buyer who redeems the code and that a buyer can use a Coupon code on multiple listings and on multiple occasions until any expiration date that you set when creating the Coupon.

Sellers are responsible for following Hello Hali’s policies and all applicable laws associated with Sales and Coupons. For Sales, it’s your responsibility to set the terms and conditions for the promotion in the “Sale details” section. For Coupons, it’s your responsibility to communicate any terms or limitations for the promotion to buyers when sharing the Coupon code. Sales and Coupons may not be used for fee avoidance.

B. Targeted Offers

Hello Hali’s Targeted Offers is a free marketing tool that allows you to offer a Coupon to specific audiences of buyers who have interacted with your shop by either favoriting one of your listings or adding one of your listings to their cart. As with all Coupons, a coupon sent through the Targeted Offer tool can be used by any buyer that redeems the code. It can also be used on multiple listings and on multiple occasions. Targeted Offers is a free service to you, but please note that you will not be able to limit the number of sends if you opt-in to sending coupons through the Targeted Offer tool. If you wish to discontinue Target Offers, you can manage or turn off your campaigns at any time from your Sales and Coupons dashboard. You also have the option to automatically send a Coupon as a thank you to buyers who have made a purchase from your shop. Hello Hali may change or stop this Targeted Offer service at any time upon notice to you.

Please note that Coupons will only be sent to buyers who have opted in to receive Coupons and Promotions via email from Hello Hali sellers.
