Q. Can I change the Discount rate/Shipping fee/Min effective rate after created an offer

①Click on "Order List"

②Select the offer that you need to change, click "Update Offer"

③Change the discount rate and/or shipping fee and click "Update Offer"

Q. Can I change the setting of my wishlist after created an offer

The following things will happen when changing the information on the wish list during the status of "Wait for Buyer" or "Buyer Purchasing" after submitting the offer

  • Changes to the item information such as "Item, Quantity, Color, Size, Price, etc." will not be reflected in the offer.
    If you want to change the item information after you have submitted an offer, cancel the offer first, make changes to the wish list, and then create an offer again.
  • Changes to the settings such as "List name", "Recipient", and "Shipping address" will be reflected in the offer.
    If you want to change the shipping address or recipient name after you have submitting an offer without canceling the offer, you can change the list setting without canceling the offer.

Although you can make some changes while the offer is active, it is recommended to cancel the offer first to make changes to the list and then create an offer again to avoid Buyer’s misplacement.

Q. What is "Min effective rate"

The min effective rate is a mechanism to prevent trades from being executed at a lower rate than Shopper would like when the market fluctuates sharply. Your offer will not be visible from the list if it is outside the rate you set. It will then reappear when the rate recovers.

Q. Suddenly the status is changed "Complete Payment(Waiting for Deposit)"

The currency rate is changing constantly.

For each trade, the rate gets fixed and the funds will be restricted "when Buyer accepts an offer".

Therefore, even when the deposit (available balance) is sufficient at the time of submitting an offer, while in the "Wait for Buyer" status your deposit may become insufficient due to reasons like,

"the available balance has decreased due to other offers in progress" and/or "because the currency rate changed, available balance became insufficient when converting funds in legal currency".

Also, even if the deposit is insufficient, the offer will not automatically be withdrawn, but when the Buyer clicks "Receive Offer(Accept Offer)" for the particular offer, then it will change the status to "Complete Payment" and the offer will be taken down.

 *When situations like these happen, Buyer is not considered as accepting this offer. When you receive the "Complete Payment" status, the offer will be validated again by clicking "Activate" on the transaction screen after depositing sufficient funds.

Avacus confirms Shopper’s available balance two times.

  1. When creating an offer
  2. When Buyer accepts an offer

Q. How do I find out the item’s expected arrival date

When Buyer has added "Tracking ID", it will be displayed with Shipping Company under the Order ID on the right side of the transaction screen, please use that information to contact the designated shipping company. If the "Tracking ID" is not displayed, please contact Buyer.

Q. Item is taking too long to deliver. What should I do

Please contact Buyer first and check the order status, delivery situation and expected arrival date. 

If the delay is caused by Amazon or the shipping company’s trouble, please inquire Buyer, who is an actual purchaser to contact Amazon.

After transitioning to ARBITRATION MODE, Avacus support will contact Buyer, and if there is no response, then the support side will forcibly cancel the offer.
