BuyDirectUSA reserves the right to modify or change these terms at any time. All modifications and changes will be posted here without any prior written notice and the last updated date will be modified at the top of this page.
By using this site you are bound by all changes and modifications and further agree to such changes by continuing to use this site. It is strongly recommended that you revisit this page periodically to review any changes or modifications.
We do our best to ensure that every company in our directory complies with our Terms, but because companies change so often we may not be updated. Please Contact us if you find an error on our website or a company who is not complying with our guidelines.
Advertising & Sponsorship Guidelines
All Manufacturers of American made goods and retailers who sell products with the Made in USA claim must comply with the guidelines set forth by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). This includes made in USA and made in America claims. If you are unsure if you may classify the product you make or sell as Made in the USA OR Made in America, please visit the FTC website to learn what may or may not be classified with these claims.
EXCEPTIONS: We understand and realize that many manufactures produce a variety of goods and not all products will carry the “Made in USA” label. You may still advertise your website with us as long as you use full disclosure about which of your product lines are Made in the USA.
We are NOT a certification website and do not certify any claims made by the sponsors who advertise on our website.
If said manufacturer or retailer violates the terms above, your website will be removed from BuyDirectUSA.com and we will NOT issue a refund for any unused advertising time left. In addition, please be aware that making false claims about the products you manufacturer or sell is a violation of FTC policies and will be reported to the FTC.
By submitting your site to BuyDirectUSA, you ensure that BuyDirectUSA will consider and respond to your suggestion on an expedited basis.
Your payment and participation, in accordance with this Agreement, guarantees that a member of BuyDirectUSA’s editorial staff will look at your site, consider your suggestion to include the site in the BuyDirectUSA Directory, and respond to you within three (3) business days from the date that you submit your site for consideration. Please note: this excludes any holiday periods observed by BuyDirectUSA and any delays due to problems processing your request.
All monthly and yearly membership package terms shall automatically renew for subsequent periods of the same length as the initial term unless either party gives the other written notice of termination at least thirty (30) days prior to expiration of the then-current term.
Blog & News Submission Guidelines
If you are the writer of an article or press release, you authorize BuyDirectUSA.com to display your work without compensation. All External links in the work should open in a new window.

Submissions of Articles that Belong to Others
Do not modify the article or title in any way with the exception of ads. You must include the email address (if available) and the complete URL from where you found the article. DO NOT submit any material that contains offensive, objectionable, or illegal material. If you violate this rule, you will be banned from BuyDirectUSA.com and any illegal content submitted will be reported to the proper authorities.
We post and re-post information about your products and services to various social media accounts based on the advertising package you have chosen. If for any reason, we deem you are posting inappropriate material, those postings and submissions will be stopped with or without warning as we deem fit. We do our best to stay politically neutral on all issues. Our primary focus is to help US businesses who are manufacturing and/or selling American Made products and services. If we allow you shared access we reserve the right to revoke this at anytime for any reason.
Any and all businesses must be owned and operated in the USA. While many companies may have operations outside the US and offer products and services outside the US, the business itself must be US owned.
Cancellations & Refunds
Should you decide that you no longer want to be a sponsor, you must contact us within 48 hrs of placing your order via email and you will be given a full refund minus any transaction fees. If your listing has already been approved, it will be deleted before the refund is issued. On all Monthly Promotional Packages we require a 30 day Notice before cancellation.
If service with any of our promotional packages has started and you request a chargeback with your credit card company without first contacting us, we are assessed a fee of no less than $25.00 and the fee shall be passed back onto you. Our phone number is listed on your credit card statement so if you do not recognize the charge you must call us to verify said charges.
