The Users can view the Listings on the Website and respond to them. If the Users are registered and logged in, they can also place Listings on the Website through the “Sell” menu and “Create Listing” form.

In general, Listings will remain on the Website for up to 60 days, provided that the "Terms of Use" are met and Users have not deleted their Listings themselves. It is then possible to perform re-Listing.

General rules for placing Listings on the Website


The Listings placed on the Website by the Sellers must comply with the following rules:

Listings must be placed under the most appropriate category. After placing the Listing, the Seller cannot change the category under which it is placed, however it is possible to place the Listing under multiple categories at its creation stage.

With regard to products, only one specific product may be requested or offered in one Listing.

The Title and Description of the Listings must be written in English and should not be misleading, inaccurate or incorrect.

The Title and Description of the Listings must accurately and clearly describe the products or services that are offered, and in particular their properties and price.

The pictures of the Listings must always relate to the products or services offered. It is not allowed to place photos of the Listings on which the copyright or portrait right of a third party rests, without the permission of that third party.
The Listings may only be placed once, regardless of the chosen category. The Listing may not be placed again before its duration has expired. The Listings that are nevertheless placed again can be experienced as SPAM and those items may possibly be removed from the website.

The Listings should not contain an excessive amount of characters or keywords to attract attention or to increase the chance of occurrence in various searches.

It is not permitted to include a disclaimer in the Listings with regard to the authenticity of the products or services offered. After all, the Sellers must ensure that the products or services that they offer are genuine.

It is not permitted to place the Listings with purely commercial messages whose sole purpose is to promote a Seller or commercial company directly or indirectly.

It is not permitted to mention websites or to include links to websites that are fully or partially filled with links to other advertising websites or to other advertisements that are aimed at processing advertising revenue by generating clicks.

When placing the Listing, the Seller must of course take into account the non-exhaustive examples of unauthorized Website content and the provisions regarding the intellectual property rights of third parties.

If the Listings do not meet these conditions, they can be removed by SATBEAMS.MARKET administration.

Sellers are expected to know the laws and regulations that apply to the products or services that they sell, buy or view, and they must ensure that the products or services offered and requested by them are in accordance with applicable law - and regulations may be traded before placing them on the Website. In case of doubt, it can be recommended that Sellers obtain further information or advice from the competent authorities.

Unless explicitly stated and allowed by SATBEAMS.MARKET for this (for example in the case of API partners), it is not permitted to place advertisements on the Website via an automated system, or in any way other than via the Website’s “Create Listing” form. Placing the Listings on behalf of third parties is prohibited.

Bids


The Seller can create his Listing as “Auction” allowing potential Buyers to place bids for their products and services. The Seller can set the “Reserve Price” as the minimal possible bid that will be accepted. In this case a bid for a product or service in the Listing is not binding and the Seller is not obliged to accept the bid unless the “Reserve Price” is achieved. If the “Reserve Price” is not set the Seller is obliged to sell to the winning bidder.

It is not allowed to place bids for the sole purpose of disrupting the bidding process (i.e. “fake or fun bidding”).

If the User is removed due to the expiry of the placement period or for any other reason, the corresponding bids will also be deleted.

Ratings/Feedback


All Registered Users can rate the buying or selling behavior and provide feedback for other Users if the Sales transaction has been concluded between them. Ratings/feedback are linked to the User profiles and can be viewed by the Website visitors. Positive/negative feedback affects User’s “reputation”.

SATBEAMS.MARKET administration has right to remove the User’s feedback for any reason and more specifically, if it contains offensive or privacy sensitive content and/or abusive words, not related to the User’s behavior, given by Users who have violated certain rules or “Terms of Use” and
feedback with a commercial content.

Any User has right to  report violations by pressing “Report user” button on the offending User’s profile page.

Listing Prices and Payment methods


The Seller must always state the total price in the price field of the Listing. Sellers who offer products or services to consumers as a company must mention total prices, including all taxes and all additional freight, delivery or postage costs and any other costs in their Listings.

The Seller may not require from a Buyer to use certain payment methods in the Listing.
