Most asked
I've paid for my item. Why haven’t I received it yet?
There are a number of reasons why your order could be taking some time to arrive. For example, if the seller lives in a different country to you, shipping might take longer. As soon as the seller ships the item, we’ll send you an email which you can use to track it. You can also track it in the order details. This will give you an idea of what stage of the shipping process it’s in and whether it’s been held up at a particular stage. You can also check the estimated shipping time in your item’s order details to see when you can expect it to arrive.If you can’t find the tracking information or it’s taking longer than the estimated shipping time, reach out to the seller. We recommend contacting them in English or in their own language.All of this information can be found on the order page that you can find in Your Won LotsIf your lot has not been delivered within 20 days of arranging shipping, let us know. That way, we can make sure your payment doesn’t go through to them until all issues are resolved.

What should I do if my lot has been delivered and does not conform to its description?
If your lot has been delivered, but unfortunately does not conform to its description, or you believe that the item is fake, we advise you to contact the seller directly to share your concerns with them in an effort to come to a mutual solution. In said message to the seller, please attach pictures of the item you received to support you in explaining your concerns.If the matter is not solved through direct contact with the seller, please make sure to inform us within 3 days after delivery was made (the exact date will be recorded through Track & Trace).

Can I withdraw an item I have offered for auction?
If a lot you've offered up for auction is no longer available or you are unable to deliver the lot according to its description, e.g if it is lost or damaged while the auction is ongoing, then please inform us. Based on your notification, the lot may be removed from the auction or we may be forced to cancel the transaction. We will ask you to provide documents, files or other forms of proof that support your notification. Depending on the circumstances, you may be held liable for any damages caused by such removal or cancellation.
When and how do I arrange the pick-up of an item?
If your lot has not been picked up, you need to contact the buyer to come to an agreement about the collection. The buyer is obligated to collect the lot, and as the seller, you are required to keep the lot available until the buyer collects it. You can contact the buyer through your order detail page. If the buyer doesn't respond or doesn't collect the lot within 10 days, please contact us and we will mediate to solve the problem.If a third party is involved in the collection of the lot, the buyer will take the resposibility for the whole process. We recommend that you, in case of a specific pickup situation, first gain more information from the buyer. Don't give a lot away without being sure that it is an official collection from the buyer.If the buyer selected the pickup option but now wants to arrange for shipment of the lot, both of you can come to an agreement. If the lot was set as 'Pickup required', we advise you to be more flexible and cooperate to meet the needs of the buyer and don't lose the sale.
