Melltoo Marketplace’s shipping partners are extremely accurate. They are the best performers in logistics in the UAE. That being said, errors are human. They may happen. A buyer may not receive their ordered item and their item might be mishandled or misplaced. This is still a very rare occurrence.
We are committed to protect our users (buyers and sellers) when such mistake happens. We are committed to either retrieving the correct package or refunding the counterparts for the real* value of the lost item.
You can only reclaim a lost package exactly one month after order placement date. Regardless of our response timing, we will take into account the first time you sent us an inquiry with the specific order ID of the lost item.
*real refers to the market value of the lost item (either new or used). This will be settled between inquisitor and Melltoo moderation team.
Cancellation is nearly impossible after an order has been picked-up from the seller and on its way in delivery to the buyer.
- There are no cancellation fees if cancelled day of order placement.
- There are cancellation fees of 20 dhs incurred by buyer or seller if one or either requests a cancellation of their order after it has been booked for delivery.
The fee is purely procedural. It covers the the time and logistics of booking an order for delivery and cancelling it on behalf of the Melltoo Marketplace team and the partner shipping company.
There are three options available to pay on the Melltoo app:
You can buy items on Melltoo app with your referral credit:
- We’ve implemented a new policy to reduce free credit to cover only 50% of the price instead of 100% at the start of Melltoo.
- From now on 50% of the price have to be paid either by credit card online on the app or by cash on delivery when you receive the item.
Cash on delivery
You can buy items on the Melltoo app while pay only upon delivery.

Melltoo is a peer to peer marketplace for preloved and second hand items as well as new items that are UNIQUE. We are not built for business sellers who purchase new things for resale. As a result, business selling on Melltoo is not allowed.
If you are selling:
- Items that are new.
- Many of the same items.
- Many similar items that vary only in color, brand or other nonfunctional characteristics
- Items purchased to be resold for a profit
- Remove all your listings.
- Send you a warning.
- If you continue to list new items for business selling, we will revoke your ability to list items for sale
