User Agreement

Introduction

This User Agreement and all policies posted on our sites set out the terms on which Alteromall offers you access to and use of our sites, services, applications and tools (collectively "Services"). You agree to comply with all of the above when accessing or using our Services. When you use any Alteromall site, you agree to accept and be bound by the terms of that site.

The entity you are contracting with is Alteromall International Limited which is headquartered at  RM. 1702, SINO CENTRE, 582-592 NATHAN RD , MONGKOK, KLN., HONG KONG, with the operational office located in C-G-23A , BLOCK C, PUSAT PERNIAGAAN SEKSYEN 8 (8 AVENUE), JALAN SUNGAI JERNEH 8/1, 46050, PETALING JAYA SELANGOR, MALAYSIA.

About Alteromall

Alteromall is a marketplace that allows users to offer, sell or buy just about anything in a variety of pricing formats and locations. Alteromall does not have possession of anything listed or sold through Alteromall. The actual contract for sale is direct between the sellers and buyers, once the process of sell and buy has been successfully completed. Alteromall is not a traditional retail process.

While we may provide pricing, shipping, listing, and other guidance to our Services, such guidance is solely informational; you may decide to follow it or not. Alteromall will review users' listings or content from time-to-time to make sure all listings are followed accordingly to our standards. Also, while we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes through various programs, Alteromall has no control over and does not guarantee the existence, quality, safety or legality of items advertised; the quality, authenticity or accuracy of users' content, products or listings; the ability of sellers to sell items; the ability of buyers to pay for items; or that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction or return an item is between them.

Policy Enforcement

When a buyer or seller issue arises, we may consider the user's performance history and the particular circumstances in applying our policies. We may choose to be more lenient with policy enforcement in an effort to do the right thing for both buyers and sellers.

Fees

Joining Alteromall as a vendor is compulsory to become a member to alteroclub. The fees we charge for using our services are listed below:

·       Alteromall Marketplace Commission Scheme.

    • Electrical Products: 3% on merchant’s selling price
    • Others products: 10% of dealer’s selling price

·       Alteromall Marketplace Payment Fee.

    • EMP Payment : 2.5% on total checkout value
    • Paypal Payment : 5% on total checkout value.

·       Alteromall Merchant Wallet Withdrawal Fee (If withdrawal is made)

    • Less than USD 100: 2% on merchant’s withdrawal amount, per transaction.
    • USD 101 and more: USD 2 per transaction.

 

Upon receiving the confirmation of recipients of the goods purchased by the buyer, Alteromall will then credit the amount, after deducting the fees mentioned above, to seller’s merchant wallet, which can be seen in the dealer’s personal alteroclub account. This whole process will take seven working days. Processing of crediting will only start after confirmation and/or proof of receiving of the goods.

We may change our seller fees from time to time by posting the changes on the Alteromall site 14 days in advance, but notice  for temporary promotions is however not required

Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in both US Dollars and E-Mall Points (EMP).

It is compulsory to optimize the payment method provided by Alteromall when selling on Alteromall.

International Buying and Selling; Translation

Some of our Services are accessible to international sellers and buyers.

Sellers and buyers are responsible for complying with all laws and regulations applicable to the international sales, purchases, and shipment of items.

You may list your items directly on one or more of Alteromall's international sites. Additionally, you may direct us to display your listing on Alteromall sites other than the original Alteromall listing site, including where you choose to list an item with an international shipping option (such as worldwide shipping), but acknowledge that the appearance of your listings on these sites is not guaranteed. When you sell your items internationally, you agree to be subject to that other site's policies and Alteromall's International Selling Policy. You may restrict international buyers from purchasing your items if you explicitly exclude international shipping from your listings and apply an exclusion list to your listings.

If you are a seller, you authorize us to use automated tools to translate your Alteromall content, in whole or in part, into local languages where such translation solutions are available. If you are a buyer, you may have access to tools which will enable you to translate content at your request. The accuracy and availability of any translation are not guaranteed, and you should check your translated listing for accuracy.
