Contractual Relationship

Agreement with the Brands

We agree with the Brands and sell our services to them. Brands owe a payment to us, not to the Publishers or Third Parties. We act on our behalf and bear all economic risk, which also includes certain financial, legal, and tax obligations associated with the sale of services to the Brands.

Examples of obligations that may fall on us following the agreements between the Brands and us:

  • Delivery of services to the Brands;

  • Provide reports to the Brands;

  • Refunds;

  • Local tax requirements;

  • Compliance with the other agreements and governing law etc.

No Agreement Between the Buyer and Publisher

We do not enter into possession or control of funds owed by other parties at any time. We are a re-seller of services purchased from the Third Party and act only on our behalf and at our own expense. The Brands and the Publishers or Third Parties do not conclude any agreements and have no rights and obligations towards each other.

Fees and Payment

Medialister is open to reviewing listings and selecting Publisher offers, but to book, you must make an advance payment. Medialister charges a 15% service fee to Brands and Publishers for all services on the site.

Medialister also allows you to purchase non-refundable membership subscriptions with different levels of access at prices listed on the site for both Brands and Publishers.

Prices are in US dollars and do not include taxes that may apply in any jurisdiction. If any jurisdiction imposes taxes or other charges on transactions under these Terms, Buyer shall pay such taxes.

The Buyer agrees immediately:

  • Update all information to keep your account and credit card billing current, complete and accurate (for example, changing your billing address or email);

  • Notify Medialister in writing if it becomes aware of a potential breach of security, such as unauthorized disclosure or use of Buyer's username or password, and

  • Satisfy all outstanding payment obligations that Buyer has through using Medialister.

Payment from the Brand

Following the Terms between the Brands and Medialister, the Brands owes payment for services to us. We act on our behalf and at our own expense. We receive payments from the Brands for sales made by us and are not obligated to repay these funds to the Publishers or any other party. We do not collect payments on behalf of the Third Party, except taxes.

Medialister uses a third-party payment processor for all credit card payments made on its Sites and relies on such party to resolve any payment conflicts.


Medialister may be required by applicable laws to charge Brands & Publishers with indirect taxes (such as Sales Tax, VAT or GST) or to withhold taxes. Any amount Medialister will be required to collect will be in addition to the purchase amount and any other fees payable by the Brands, and any amount Medialister will be required to withhold will be deducted from the Publishers’s revenue, as required by applicable laws.

Indirect taxes are in addition to the price shown on the site, and in any event, any such taxes will always be displayed to the Brands before payment.

Brands are responsible for paying any direct or indirect taxes, including any GST, VAT, or income tax, which may apply to them depending on residency, location or otherwise, under provisions of their jurisdiction.

Invoices and Receipts

All payments are accompanied by electronic receipts, which you can find in your Transaction History.

We issue invoices for services actually provided in an accounting period on our own behalf to the payer you indicate in your payment profile.

Billing details issued on invoices are reported to local tax authorities, and because of that, it’s not possible to change them once the service has been made. Please make sure you’ve added your details correctly before you pay for your booking. 

You agree to receive invoices and/or payment receipts from Medialister electronically in the form of PDF documents, via email or through the Site. This invoice is sent without signature and stamp under the Tax Code.

Payment to the Publisher or Third Party

Following the Terms between Medialister and the Publishers, we owe payment for the right to place a commercial article. We make payment to the Publisher on our own behalf and at own expense. We do not handle funds that are beneficially owned by the Third Party.

Payout Methods

Additional fees may apply based on your location and currency.

Local Bank Transfer (LBT) — US$20 per transfer*. For more information, see Pricing and Fees. Available worldwide.

Direct Deposit (ACH) — US$1 per transfer*. For more information, see Pricing and Fees. Available only in the US.

Invoices and Receipts

Publishers or Third Parties have agreed to receive payouts for services based on independently issued invoices, which are issued automatically by the recipient of services following business practices and the terms of the public offer, delivered electronically and stored in the Publisher's account on Medialister; and the Publisher accepts this for declaration purposes. The invoice is issued electronically and is valid without the signature.

Billing details issued on self-billing invoices are reported to local tax authorities, and because of that, it’s not possible to change them once the service has been made. Please make sure you’ve added your details correctly before you withdraw funds.

No Payments Between the Brands and Publishers or Third Party

There are no payments between the Brands and Publishers and subsequently, we do not manage the payments between those two parties.
