2) Comments:

Look at the comments left by buyers on a seller’s listings to determine how trustworthy a seller is. If buyers are praising a seller for their good service, that is great news and you can make your purchase confidently. However, if buyers are complaining about a seller, that is an immediate red flag and you should be cautious about buying from them.

3) Chat:

If you don’t find any reviews or comments, but you still want to check a seller out, don’t hesitate to speak with the seller via Melltoo’s private chat. If during your conversation, the seller makes strange requests, asks you inappropriate questions or for unnecessary personal information, stop the conversation immediately and report them to Melltoo by pressing on the report button.

In case the seller does not reply back to you and you still want to buy from them, you may consult with your Melltoo customer support representative to get the seller to respond to your messages. All items listed in the app should be available for purchase or they will be removed.
