#HelpMeSell Movement: Making Online Selling in UAE Easier

Whether you’re decluttering your closet or getting ready to move back home, you’re probably looking for a quick and easy way to sell your stuff. However, that’s not always easy in the UAE, because sellers who post their stuff online are consistently faced with spammers, scammers and time wasters. But Melltoo wants to change that with it’s new #HelpMeSell movement!

  1. What are your charges and commissions? I hv 2 items i want to sell – a gold bracelet (small) and a hand carved cupboard (rather large). What happens with shipping?

    1. Hi Carol, we charge 8-12% commission on succesful sales. We do not charge anything if you don’t sell through us or don’t use our shipping service. I’ve included a breakdown of the costs below for your reference. Once a buyer has committed to a purchase, he/she pays us up front and we hold the money until the item is successfully delivered to and accepted by the buyer. At that time, we release the funds to you. In any event, you won’t have to deal with the logisitics of the sale and you are guaranteed either the price of the item or your item back in the same condition.

      12% for items priced under 1000 AED
      10% for items priced between 1000 to 2000 AED
      8% for items priced above 2000 AED

      Shipping costs for small item (e.g. bracelet): 20 AED anywhere in the UAE

      Moving costs for furniture (e.g. large cupboard): 250 AED anywhere in Dubai
      Fuel surcharges: 150 AED if moving outside of Dubai or cross-emirates (e.g. Dubai to Al Ain)
      Dismantling & reassembly costs (if necessary): 100 AED per piece
      *Moving costs are typically paid for by the buyer and we include them in the purchase price so the buyer is aware of the total cost of getting the item to their doorstep.

      We are happy to answer any other questions you may have. Feel free to email us at [email protected].
