A Temporary Merchant Bond must be filed by peddlers, transient merchants, or itinerant solicitors working in Las Vegas, Nevada who accept payment for goods or services with the intent to deliver them in the future. The $5,000 bond is used as a safeguard that temporary merchants will not cause monetary loss to their customers or the City of Las Vegas through a violation of their temporary merchant permit.
Getting your Temporary Merchant Bond with Jet Insurance Company gives the City a guarantee that if you cause financial damage through permit violations, there is recourse available.
You can purchase your Temporary Merchant Bond from Jet for $100 guaranteed. Jet is a direct insurance company, so we can issue the bond as soon as you fill out the required information.

City of Las Vegas
Department of Planning
Business Licensing Division
333 N Rancho Dr, 6th Floor

If you need to cancel the bond, keep in mind that a span of 30 days must occur before cancellation is final. Just send Jet an email to email@example.com and we will notify the City to begin the cancellation period.
The obligations of the bond are simple: follow the provisions of the permit, refund what must be refunded in a timely manner, and pay any license fees required. If these conditions are not followed and therefore cause financial loss to a customer or the City, a claim on the Temporary Merchant Bond will be made.
If Jet receives a claim, an investigation into the claim must take place. If the claim is valid, Jet must pay out the amount of the claim, up to the full $5,000 limit. Keep in mind that since it was your actions that caused the financial damage and led to the claim, you are responsible for paying Jet back.
