  • All kinds of services;  
  • Jobs and job-related posts;
  • Personal ads and community events;
  • Living animals and pets;
  • Food, beverages spirit drinks and alcoholics;
  • Medications, tablets and medical preparations;
  • Flammables and flammable fireworks;
  • Fake skincare products and cosmetics;
  • Firearms and ammunition;
  • Gold coins and nuggets;
  • Cigarettes, e-cigarettes and other smoking equipment;
  • Pornographic materials.

Important Disclaimer: We do not allow items outside one country to be sold internationally. Sellers can only list items they own and are in their possession in the United Arab Emirates and Egypt only.

 

Listings Moderation

Melltoo’s moderation team screens all listings prior to them appearing in the marketplace. This is to maintain a desirable product mix for the marketplace. Listings are approved or removed based on the following:

  • Image policy;
  • Description;
  • Price accuracy;
  • Prohibited listings;
  • Duplicate items.

 

Image Policy

Buyers on Melltoo base their purchase decisions on the images presented in a listing. Hence, photographs in the listing should be taken by the seller and must be of the actual item for sale. Generic photos of the same or similar products copied from a different website are prohibited.

In addition, image clarity is important to ensure that all flaws and blemishes (if any) of the product are accurately represented. Images that are blurred or distorted will be removed.

 

Description

Sellers must include accurate and detailed description of the items they are selling on Melltoo. Description must include valid and up-to-date details about the item to be offered for sale via Melltoo such as state of the item (new, old, ripped, slightly damaged, etc.) or details about its functionality.

T description may not include a violation of the Melltoo Pay & Ship system such as refusal to sell via Melltoo shipping and payment system or a fraudulent request for cash transfers. Melltoo team reserves the right to block such posts and the corresponding seller without prior notification at Melltoo’s sole discretion

 

Price Accuracy

The price sellers select at the time of listing their item should be the sale price at which the seller is willing to sell. Listing an item with a very low price only to reject the order once a buyer purchases is grounds for account suspension. Melltoo moderators will automatically remove listings that have unusually low prices.

Listings for overly high prices will also be removed.

In cases where the shipping costs are misrepresented, the listing will also be removed. The reason for this is to avoid buyer disappointment. Since orders with inaccurate shipping costs will be cancelled, listings with inaccurate shipping costs will be removed.

Duplicate Items

The Melltoo moderation team automatically removes all items with duplicate titles. We encourage Melltoo sellers to sell unique items on the mobile application and the website. We discourage volume sales of the same items even with slight variations such as size or color. In order to give sellers equal chances, the moderation team will also block remove items and may prevent a seller from adding any more listings on either the mobile application or the website.

 

Listings Removals

After initial moderation, a listing will show up on the Melltoo product feed. We reserve the right to remove items that are deemed unsuitable at our sole discretion, even after initial approval. Users who have their items removed will not be informed about the decision to remove their listings prior to removal. However, if they feel that their listings have been removed in error, they may request a review by the user support team via in-app messaging or by email.

Occasionally, the Melltoo moderation team will block other types of listings that are flagged by our community as unsuitable (e.g. refurbished phones, fake products, deceptively described items and so forth).

A listing may be removed for one of the following reasons:

  • Contains nudity or inappropriate content
  • Listing is for an item that is prohibited for sale on Melltoo
  • Offering animals or livestock for sale
  • Images are copied from another user or website or are blurred and unrecognizable
  • Reason to believe that the item is misrepresented
  • Reason to believe that the item is not really for sale or unavailable
  • Listings are repetitive and repeatedly posted in a very short amount of time

 

Pricing of Melltoo Services and Shipping Fees

Listing price

The listed price of an item (as determined by the seller) composes of the following:

  • Commission
  • Shipping
  • “You Get” = amount the seller gets once the sale is complete

Commissions

Commissions are paid by sellers as a fee for using Melltoo services as follows:

  • Minimum commission amount is AED 5
  • 12% commission on items whose price is under AED 1,000
  • 10% commission on items whose price is above AED 1,000
  • Maximum commision amount is AED 100

 

Commission Waivers

In order to incentivize new sellers and encourage them to offer their products for sale via Melltoo, Melltoo grants newly registered sellers a waiver of commission on their first three* listings. However, sellers are not allowed to create multiple user accounts for the purposes of avoiding commissions. If a seller is found to have created multiple accounts in order to avoid paying commissions, all of their transactions will be subject to retroactive commission fees. In such cases, an audit of the seller’s accounts will be conducted by the Melltoo Security and Anti-Fraud Enforcement (SAFE) team, and previously waived commission amounts will be deducted from their cash balance without prior notice.

*this is subject to change without advance notice

Note: Any abuse of this commission waiver policy may result in the immediate suspension of your user account(s) without prior notice.

Shipping Fees

 

Shipping fees are flat and are the same across the UAE. They are included in the listing price that is displayed.

    • From 0 to 5 kilograms = AED 20
    • From 0 to 5 kilograms = AED 20 + AED 1 for each additional kg above 5 kilograms

 

  • Bulk items whose weight ranges from 0 to 10 kilograms (e.g. strollers, kids bicycles, small furniture) = AED 40 per single piece
  • Shipping fees for larger items are often calculated and agreed upon with users on an individual case by case basis

 

 

Purchase Payments and Sale Withdrawals

Payment Options

There are three payment options available while purchasing items listed for sale on the Melltoo:

  1. Existing Melltoo balance consisting of cash amounts available in your Melltoo wallet and Melltoo free credit or referral credit;
  2. Credit, debit or prepaid cards;
  3. Cash on delivery.

 

Sale Withdrawals

Once a sale is completed, the “You Get” amount is credited to the seller’s account. The seller then has the option to withdraw this amount or keep the amount in his account for future purchases.

Once a withdrawal request is received, we process it within 3-5 business days. However, if inaccurate information is provided or other issues occur with third party transfer agents (banks, cash transfer agents), withdrawals may take up to 7-10 business days.

The following policies apply when processing withdrawal requests.

  1. There is a maximum limit of one withdrawal request that can be processed for a single. beneficiary (not user account) per week.
  2. Withdrawals to free credit are worth 125% of cash balance and are not reversible.
  3. Cash transfers (Western Union, etc) under AED 1,000 incur a transfer fee of AED 20 per transaction.
  4. Cash transfers (Western Union, etc) over AED 1,000 are free of charges.
  5. Direct bank transfer withdrawals are always free in the UAE.
  6. Withdrawals to Mashreq Bank ATM’s are free and disbursed in multiples of AED 100.

 

Cancellations, Returns, and Refunds

Cancellations

Requested within 24 hours of purchase or order acceptance. If a request to cancel is made within 24 hours after purchase (by buyer) or order acceptance (by seller), no fee is levied.

Requested more than 1 day after purchase or order acceptance. If a request to cancel is made 1 day after purchase (by buyer) or order acceptance (by seller), a 20 AED fee is deducted from the requesting party’s balance. These are processing costs associated with courier charges.

Any user who has more than 3 cancellations in a 30-day period may have their account suspended without notice.

 

Refunds Policy

  • We guarantee that a buyer will receive the item he purchased or his payment will be refunded.
  • We guarantee that a seller will get payment for the item he sold or he will get his item back in the same condition it was shipped.
  • Refunds are processed within 5-7 business days after the reason for the refund is justified and approved.
  • When shopping through either Melltoo mobile application or Melltoo website, both sellers and buyers are protected by Melltoo’s new payment feature called “Pay & Ship Secure”. This means that sellers will be guaranteed by Melltoo to receive their sales proceeds if they sell their items via our delivery services. Buyers are also equally protected by Melltoo. Buyers may request full, conditional refund if they would like to return an item they had bought through Melltoo Pay & Ship Secure service.
  • Offline transactions between Melltoo sellers and buyers are not protected under Pay & Ship Secure coverage. Thus, Melltoo will not be liable to refund neither buyers nor sellers.

Returns

A buyer may return an item if he initiates a return (by tapping on the “Return” button in-app) within 3 days of receiving the item. A customer service agent will contact the buyer to request the reason for the return. The buyer is required to respond within 3 days or the return request will be cancelled.

Valid reasons for returns include:

    • Item received is not the item that was purchased
    • Item is not as described in the posted ad or does not match the photograph in the ad
    • Item has significant flaws that greatly affect usability and these flaws were NOT mentioned in the ad

Invalid reasons for returns include:

    • Buyer changed his mind
    • Buyer doesn’t “like” the “color” or some other subjective characteristic of the item that doesn’t impact usability and function
    • Item doesn’t fit even though the size indicated is accurate
    • Item doesn’t function in a specific manner desired by the buyer, but that is not customary of the product (e.g. an Android phone that cannot download apps from Apple App Store)

In the event that the reason for return is INVALID, a buyer may still return the item WITH SELLER’S APPROVAL. The buyer will be responsible for the shipping costs (2-ways) of the original transaction and the return transaction. In most cases, the shipping cost in 40 AED, but in cases where the item is large, shipping costs will vary.

In the event of a dispute between buyer and seller, Melltoo will arbitrate between the two parties based on the posted ad, in-app communications (chats and comments) and photographic evidence provided by users. If either party does not provide requested evidence within 3 days, the dispute will be dropped in favor of the opposing party.

 

Lost Packages

In the event of lost packages, we are committed to protecting our users (both buyers and sellers) when such unintended mistakes happen. Accordingly, we are committed to either retrieving the correct package or refunding the user affected by the mistake for the actual value of the lost item. By actual value we mean the fair market value of the lost item (either new or used) after reaching agreement with the buyer or the seller. This will be settled between the affected party and Melltoo’s user support team.

You can only reclaim a lost package within one week after you are notified that the package has been delivered. Regardless of our response time, we will take into account the first time you sent us an inquiry with the specific order ID of the lost item.

 

Pick-Up (When a User Sells an Item)

For any courier pickup for a newly placed order, we will make 3 attempts to pick up the item. After the third attempt, we reserve the right to cancel the order without notifying the seller and refund the buyer.


In cases of multiple failed order pickups caused by a single seller for no valid reason, we reserve the right to either suspend or permanently terminate the seller’s user account at our sole discretion and without prior notification.

Melltoo Impacter Program

General

Melltoo has created and adopted a new program called “Impacter” in response to the feedback of sellers in the UAE. Sellers can now resell their items on the Melltoo platform for a cause. When they resell for a cause, people in-need benefit and win.

As part of the program, we have partnered with charities, such as the UAE Red Crescent and Salma Aid that are licensed to collect donations in the UAE. We will add new causes along the way in an effort to increase our and your impact on society

 

Participation in Impacter Program on Melltoo

Below are the steps for participating in the program:

  1. Sellers choose to add an “Impacter” badge to their listings in the feed;
  2. Sellers choose a registered charity to whom they donate their sale proceeds whether in part or in full;
  3. Organization receives money and sellers receive “Impacter credit*” in-app.

Note: The donation amount is equal to the cash amount that the seller would usually receive (The amount the seller would usually receive will now go to charity of choice instead.)

* Every time you successfully sell a new item that is marked for “impacter”, you receive impacter credit. In the near future, Impacter credit can be redeemed for freebies provided by our partners.
