Wishop Seller Policy   

All sellers are expected to adhere to the following policy document when listing products on Wishop . Seller offenses and prohibited content can result in suspension of your Wishop account.

Seller code of conduct

This policy requires that sellers act fairly and honestly on Wishop to ensure a safe buying and selling experience. All sellers must:

  • Always provide accurate information to Wishop and our customers.
  • Act fairly and not misuse Wishop features or services.
  • Not attempt to damage or abuse another Seller, their listings, or ratings.
  • Not attempt to influence customers’ ratings, feedback, and reviews.
  • Not send unsolicited or inappropriate communications.
  • Not attempt to circumvent the Wishop sales process.
  • Not operate more than one selling account on Wishop without a legitimate business need.
  • Violating the Code of Conduct or any other Wishop policies may result in actions against your account, such as cancellation of listings, suspension or forfeiture of payments, and removal of selling privileges. More details about these policies are below.

Accurate Information

You must provide accurate information to Wishop and our customers and update the information if it changes. For example, this means that you must use a business name that accurately identifies your business and list your products in the correct category.

Acting Fairly

You must act fairly and lawfully and may not misuse any service provided by Wishop Examples of unfair activities include:

  • Providing misleading or inappropriate information to Wishop or our customers, such as by creating multiple detail pages for the same product or posting offensive product images.
  • Manipulating sales rank (such as by accepting fake orders or orders that you have paid for) or making claims about sales rank in product titles or descriptions.
  • Attempting to increase the price of a product after an order is confirmed.
  • Artificially inflating web traffic (using bots or paying for clicks, for example)
  • Attempting to damage another Seller, their listings or ratings.
  • Allowing other people to act on your behalf in a way that violates Wishop policies or your agreement with Wishop.

Ratings, Feedback, and Reviews 

You may not attempt to influence or inflate customers’ ratings, feedback, and reviews. You may request feedback and reviews from your own customers in a neutral manner, but may not:

  • Pay for or offer an incentive (such as coupons or free products) in exchange for providing or removing feedback or reviews.
  • Ask customers to write only positive reviews or ask them to remove or change a review.
  • Solicit reviews only from customers who had a positive experience.
  • Review your own products or a competitors’ products. 

Communications 

You may not send unsolicited or inappropriate messages to customers. All communications to customers must be sent through Buyer-Seller Messaging and be necessary for fulfilling the order or providing customer services. Marketing communications are prohibited.

Customer Information 

If you receive customer information such as addresses or phone numbers to fulfill orders, you may use that information only to fulfill orders and must delete it after the order has been processed. You may not use customer information to contact customers (except through Buyer-Seller Messaging) or share it with any third-party.

Circumventing the Sales Process 

You may not attempt to circumvent the Wishop sales process or divert Wishop customers to another website. This means that you may not provide links or messages that prompt users to visit any external website or complete a transaction elsewhere.

Multiple Selling Accounts on Wishop 

You may only maintain one Seller Central account for each region in which you sell unless you have a legitimate business need to open a second account and all your accounts are in good standing. If any of your accounts are not in good standing, we may deactivate all your selling accounts until all accounts are in good standing.

Examples of a legitimate business justification include: 

  • You own multiple brands and maintain separate businesses for each.
  • You manufacture products for two distinct and separate companies.

Filing Infringement Notices as an Agent or Brand Protection Agency 

Wishop understands that many brands may choose to have brand protection agencies or agents report intellectual property infringement on their behalf and accepts submissions from authorized agents. However, Wishop does not permit individuals with active selling accounts to file infringement notices as an agent of a brand when the filing of those notices could benefit their own selling account (through removing competing listings, for example). Any sellers filing notices as an agent to benefit their own status as a seller may have their selling account terminated.

Wishop reserves the right to modify, update and alter this policy from time to time without any prior information.
