Our Buyer Abuse Policy captures inappropriate customers’ behavior.
Buyers are not allowed to use reviews, return programs, consumer protection tools, and payment disputes negatively. We invite you to read the detailed text of our policy below. It describes all expectations of the Marketplace administration regarding Buyers’ behavior norms on our platform.
How should I complain about abusive behavior?
Utilize the Report a Buyer tool in order to inform the platform administration about noticed abusive behavior.
What should I do if I think the Buyer is voicing unfounded complaints?
In such a situation, do not agree to any amendments or changes to the terms of your listing. If new demands and offers contrary to the terms and conditions of your trade offer are received from the Buyer, you will, in any case, be protected from unfounded negative feedback. You will also be protected if you cancel the order or deliver the item.
What is the essence of a payment debate?
Payment debate may occur when the Buyer starts the payment refund for the goods’ payment with a financial service provider or credit card issuer.
Abusive Buyer policy description
In this set of rules, we describe our understanding of Buyers' standards of behavior. If they do not meet our parameters, Sellers have the legal right to notify the administration of inappropriate behavior.
The rules in this code of practice can lead to certain actions, including loss of Money Back Guarantee from CoolOrca, account blocking, warnings, denial of refunds, total account termination.
In the process of analyzing the application for a violation of the established rules, we carefully examine all the conditions and circumstances of what happened and review the offender's profile. The administration makes decisions based on evidence of a particular case. If we doubt a particular situation, we will not take drastic measures. The administration of CoolOrca respects the privacy of all participants of the platform, and we do not plan to make public the details of the proceedings.
