Seller's Code Of Conduct
The purpose of this Code of Conduct is to protect and enhance the e-commerce's reputation as a vibrant, attractive and safe environment for the shopping public, Sellers and Buyers alike on Shopiya.com. The Code should be read in conjunction with Shopiya's Terms and Conditions.|
It is the Sellers' responsibility to read both. Ignorance of Terms and Conditions and/or Code of Conduct will not be accepted for any infractions to the terms.
Code of Conducts for Sellers:The most important thing is to always be honest and accurate in describing your products. The simplest way is to provide clear buyers' expectations and meet them in order to ensure a smooth transaction with your customers.
Trust is important to build a strong seller/buyer relationship.

• Specifying handling/shipping time and return policy in the listing
• Responding to buyers' questions as quick as possible
• Always being professional in communications
• Making sure the products listed are the ones delivered to the customers
Listing a Product:Since online buyers can only get information of the products they want to purchase through the Sellers' listings, the information given in the listing is what helps them to decide whether to buy. Therefore, the description has to be accurate and the picture of the product has to be the actual picture and not a stock or generic photo. It is important to ensure that the listing is only used to describe the item for sale and to communicate the terms of the sale in a professional manner.
The sellers on Shopiya.com are required to:

• Describe any defects or flaws in the item—this helps avoid problems or buyer dissatisfaction.
• Post the actual picture of the product, not a generic picture. Include the following details in the listing:
• Forms of payment accepted
