How does our Buyer Protection Policy work?

Step1: Open a dispute and at the same time try negotiating with the supplier
If you are not satisfied with your order (e.g. the item that your ordered did not arrive or is not as described), you can open a dispute. At the same time, try to negotiate with the supplier to reach agreeable terms for a refund. Most trade disputes happen because of misunderstandings. Any refund made will complete the transaction.

Step2: Still no agreement? File a claim
If no agreement has been reached, you can file a claim 3 days after your initial Dispute Request.
