“Online Dispute Resolution (ODR- Online Complaint Filing and Mediation) Mechanism”:

In support of our Consumer Protection Policy that buttresses the standard dispute resolution mechanism described under our other various policies (Terms and Conditions; Privacy Policy and Contractual/Transactional Services Agreement), we offer non-legal alternative disputes resolution mechanisms as out of court settlement intended to mediate conflicts that may erupt between consumers/customers and 3rd Party Sellers/Suppliers to ensure better protection for both parties while reducing their transactional delays, risks, liabilities and costs.
How to make an Online Complaint and Activate an Online Mediation as part of our Alternative Dispute Resolution Mechanism:

  • As we take every complaint seriously, we urge you to only file a complaint if and only if you have reasonable and sufficient grounds to do so taking professionality, personal and system ethics and integrity into account.
  • Once you have determined that you have sufficient reasonable, professional and ethical grounds to do so, we highly encourage you to file your complaint within 3 business days after receipt of delivery or after the expiration of the expected date of delivery per the tracking notification on our system. This is because our escrow payment system (described below) holds payments that are due to the 3rd Party Seller/Service Provider for up to 7 business days before release without a complaint being filed per our policy.
  • Enter a few details about yourself, the 3rd Party Seller/Supplier, your purchase and what your complaint is about.
  • Upload required and relevant documents (invoice, purchase order, photos in PDF format, the vendors assigned number retrieved from our platforms). You can submit your complaint right away, or save it as a draft.
  • You have 3 weeks to submit your complaint if you do save it as a draft. After that, all drafts are automatically archived and remain inactive for data protection reasons. However, you may reactivate the complaint within 6 months after the archiving. Thereafter, the complaint will be deleted from the system.
  • You have up to 12 months to file a complaint. Thereafter, you forfeit the right to do so.
  • Once we receive your complaint, we immediately notify the trader and begin the initial mediation process to legitimize the claim and resolve the dispute within 7 business days.
  • Feedback notifications for final closure, request for additional information, or an indication that the ODR does not have the capacity to handle your complaint warranting an advance to next level, via the platform and linked to your email, shall be sent to you.
  • You will be given 3 business days to respond (accepting the terms of closure, providing additional documentations and information, or taking an appeal to activate the non-alternative dispute resolution mechanism as provided under our various terms and conditions). You will be provided an additional 7 business days beyond the initial 3 business days to respond, after which your complaint will be archived. However, you may reactivate the complaint within 6 months after the archiving. Thereafter, the complaint will be deleted from the system.
  • If our “Consumer Protection, Legal and Compliance Unit” cannot handle your case, you will also receive a notification with the reason why.
  • If you are a 3rd Party Seller/Supplier registered on our platform, you can also use the ODR platform to send your online consumer dispute for review by our “Consumer Protection, Legal and Compliance Unit”.
  • The same process and rules as in the case of the consumer/customer’s filing will apply.
  • However, you will be required to upload required and relevant documents (invoice, purchase order, photos in PDF format, the transaction assigned number retrieved from our platforms).
  • If our “Consumer Protection, Legal and Compliance Unit” cannot handle your case, with the notification explaining why, you will be provided with guidance on how to escalate your complaints beyond the ODR mechanism and in accordance with our various policies.
