We will provide you with a cashless terminal to conduct sales at the event. No cash tips are allowed as we are a completely CASHLESS event. All sales will be done by wristband through Intellipay. Vendors will receive login information from Intellitix to access sales reports for their booth for the weekend online. Payment and final sales reconciliation report will be made available to vendors 72 hours post festival. This allows time for Seabreeze Jazz Festival to provide a printed report of sales to include with the payouts and for Intellitix to verify portals have been returned in working order from the vendors. Checks can be mailed on request to the address on file or arrangements can be made to have them picked up at our office. All vendors must have their booth space checked for cleanliness by a Seabreeze staff member before departure.

All taxes due by vendors are paid by the Seabreeze Jazz Festival with the deducted tax amount. Vendors will be receiving a W-9 form to fill out from the Seabreeze Jazz Festival for tax return filing purposes. The Seabreeze Jazz Festival will not be responsible for any loss of inventory or sales due to improper or invalid operation of the vendor’s POS terminal by the vendor. It is imperative that vendors attend the mandatory cashless POS training and utilize the on site help that is available to them by Intellitix and The Seabreeze Jazz Festival during the event. In the case of a mistake or improper transaction, the vendor is responsible for informing a staff member immediately to have the problem corrected.
