General questions

How do I login to my eShop?

As soon as you have submitted your registration form, you will receive your identifiers to connect to your seller space, go to the “Settings” section then “Your personal and banking data” and “Connection parameters” and you will find your API connection settings.

Why do I have a guarantee reserve?

This guarantee reserve aims to cover all financial risks that may occur on your account. This protective measure, in the event of a stoppage of activity or a significant slowdown, will ensure and manage your financial flows more calmly.
The dedicated amount is calculated on your sales flows and takes on any risk of debit coming either from invoicing inherent to your activity, or from customer reimbursements within the framework of after-sales service. The amount can be reviewed regularly with repayment to your payment account in the event of a reduction in the amount.

What are my tax and social obligations as a seller to private or professional customers?

Whether your customers are professionals or individuals, the income generated through Shoppydeals Marketplace must be declared to the tax authorities.
In addition, income is subject to social security contributions and results in affiliation to a social security scheme.
We invite you to read the sheets put in place by the administrations in order to know the rules applicable to the declaration of income, the declaration of activity and the payment of social security contributions:
Tax obligations:
Social obligations:
These obligations apply to platform users residing in France or who carry out sales or services in France within the meaning of Articles 258 to 259 D of the French General Tax Code.
In the event of breach of these obligations, we remind you that you will incur penalties.
This is a simple reminder of your obligations. If necessary, we invite you to contact professionals who can support you in complying with your legal obligations.

How do I set my shipping country?

The configuration must be done in your seller space. All of your orders must be made from the country you wish to choose as the country of dispatch. If you ship from several countries, you must set the country with the longest shipping time (ex: you ship 90% from France and 10% from China, you must declare China as the shipping country).
You can set your shipping country in the "Settings" tab of your seller space, then select "Your personal and bank details" from the drop-down menu. When you are on this page then select the "Commercial information" tab, on this page a section is dedicated to the settings of the country of dispatch.

Why are customer reviews important?

Customer ratings allow you to collect opinions on your store and thus reassure future buyers. Customers are strongly encouraged to leave ratings and reviews after placing an order with partner sellers.

How to handle a complaint?

You have a guide detailing the buyer-seller relationship in your seller space.
In the case of a sale to a professional customer, the latter does not benefit from a withdrawal period. The return policy is therefore at the discretion of the professional seller.
