Unfortunately, the seller may have blocked you. To be sure, check with other publications to see if you’re managing to ask questions. If you are and the seller doesn’t accept questions, you may still be able to buy a similar product from another seller.

 

If you think your account has been suspended, contact us.

a) Pickup at store
b) Regular shipping to your door

  • The minimum purchase amount must be a minimum of $10USD.

Vendors are instructed to provide you with electronic invoices when you receive your deliveries.

Compralocas is just responsible for trade information and its own commission invoice.

Purchasing

If you liked a product and have doubts about the seller, we give you some tips to keep in mind:

  • Check out the seller’s reputation by checking if he or she has Compralocas’s official badges. If there is a badge, the more the better! Having badges means that he or she is a Market Leader, a seller endorsed by the amount of sales he made, the good experience he provides to his buyers and the compliance with tax regulations.
  • If you are looking for a service, we recommend that you read the opinions of the people who have already purchased from him, and if you want to buy something expensive, it is always good to call the advertiser to coordinate a visit and remove all doubts about what you want to buy.
  • Read in detail the publication. Carefully review the entire publication: pay attention to the description and the photos to be sure of the sales conditions proposed by the seller. If the product is new, make sure it has a guarantee and that you can return it if necessary.
  • Get rid of any doubts. If after reading the entire publication you still have doubts, ask the seller everything you need to know. For example: if you need the invoice of your purchase, ask him a question and make sure he sends it to you.

For more security you can use Compralocas’s recommended E-wallet, your money will be 100% protected until you receive your purchase.

Peace of mind in your shopping

If you pay by E-wallet, we will protect your money until you have your purchase.

When you pay, the seller can see the money in his account, but he has to wait to use it. We did it this way so you have time to receive the product and evaluate it.

In addition, you can choose to have the product delivered to you through Compralocas Shipping and your money will be protected until 7 days after the mail notifies us that you have received the product. You can count on our help!

Although it is not common, if you have any problem with the purchase, we will be there to help you.

The first thing you have to do is to initiate a complaint to your seller. It would be important that you do this as soon as possible and tell us in detail what happened, so we can follow your problem and help you solve it.

If you pay by E-Wallet and you have a problem, we will give you 100% of the money back because your purchase is always protected.

You can find free shipping on thousands of new products starting at $499, to make sure they have it look for the badge in the product detail.

Do all products from $499 have free shipping?

Most do, but in some cases you may find that instead of free shipping they have discounts. This will depend on the weight of the product you want to buy and the distance you have from the seller.

 

Why do I sometimes see “Free Shipping” in the search results and then don’t get it?

 

What happens is that we calculate your shipping possibilities when you arrive at the product detail page. At that time, we look at the address you have saved in My Data and if the distance to your seller is very large, instead of free shipping, you will have discounts on both the normal and express methods.

Terms For Vendors

IMPORTANT:

Therefore, it is very important you acknowledge about all cases and learn how they will be resolved.

In all cases, Users guarantee and will be held liable for the truthfulness, accuracy, integrity, validity and authenticity of the Personal Data provided. All the information and Personal Data furnished by the User will be deemed a sworn statement.

Compralocas reserves its right to request evidence and/or additional information in order to verify the Personal Data provided by a User, as well as to temporarily or definitively suspend Users whose information cannot be verified.

Compralocas reserves its right to reject a registration request or to temporarily or definitively cancel or suspend an Account (as defined below) if it finds inconsistencies or discrepancies in the information provided by a User or discovers suspicious activities, without such decision entitling the User to any claim for compensation or redress.

  1. b) Compralocas Account. Upon registering in Compralocas´s website (www.compralocas.com), the User will open an account with Compralocas (the “Compralocas Account” or the “Account”). The Compralocas Account will enable the User to make or receive payments from the sale of goods by debiting or crediting money in the Account.

 

The User will access its Compralocas Account by entering its e-mail address (“e-mail”) and personal security code (“Passcode”). 

The User undertakes to keep its Passcode confidential. Therefore, the User will be solely and exclusively liable for all transactions conducted in its Account. The User undertakes to immediately notify Compralocas through proper and reliable means of any non-authorized use of its Account, as well as of any actual or attempted entry into the Account by non-authorized third parties.

Compralocas will allow for the opening of three (3) different types of Accounts: (i) Buyer Accounts, available by default for any person registering on Compralocas, provided all applicable requirements are met; and (ii) Merchant/Supplier Accounts, which may only be obtained upon certain validations Compralocas may deem convenient. (iii) Affiliate Accounts, which may only be used for promoting Compralocas’s services to the general public. See Requirements 

It is hereby stated that, irrespective of its type, the Account will at all times be a personal, single and non-transferrable account, and it will be assigned to a single User; furthermore, the sale, assignment or transfer of an Account (including its reputation) is strictly prohibited. The User may not permit or authorize the use of its Account by third parties, except in the case of linked accounts (see the Terms and Conditions for Linked Accounts). The Account will be identified with letters and any reference to amounts in Compralocas will be deemed made in the legal tender of the Costa Rica court, unless a different currency is expressly stated.

 

The User understands and accepts that Compralocas may cancel its Professional Account if the User fails to meet any of the imposed requirements.

  1. a) Payment Processing Agreement. The User and Compralocas (together, the “Parties”) may from time to time enter into payment processing agreements (each, individually, a “Payment Processing Request”) whereby Compralocas will provide payment processing services based on the User’s instructions (the “Payment Processing Services”) for the payment or collection of money on behalf of the User using the platform provided by Compralocas at www.compralocas.com or www.compralocas.com (the “Platform” or the “Site”) 

The Parties agree that completed Payment Processing Requests will be governed by these General Conditions (together with the conditions specific to each Payment Processing Request, the “Payment Processing Service Terms and Conditions”).

 

  1. b) Irrevocable Payment and Collection Powers. Upon completing a Payment Processing Request, the User grants Compralocas irrevocable powers so that Compralocas may: (i) pay, on the User’s behalf, a certain amount of money under the completed Payment Management Request (the “Funds”), and/or (ii) collect the Funds on its behalf, subject to these Terms and Conditions of Use.

The power of attorney granted by the User constitutes an authorization to dispose on its behalf of certain Funds of its Compralocas Account and to transfer them to a certain recipient by crediting them in a Compralocas Account designated according to its instructions as set forth in the Payment Management Request. Furthermore, the power of attorney involves an authorization by the User to receive, collect and credit the Funds in its Compralocas Account according to the instructions given in the Payment Management Request. Compralocas will not use the User’s Funds for any purposes other than those specifically instructed by the User.

  1. c) Making a Payment Processing Request. The Payment Processing Request will be made by the User by sending a Payment Processing Request online form setting out instructions regarding the Funds. Compralocas reserves its right to refrain from processing Payment Processing Requests which are incomplete, or if there are inconsistencies between the data provided by the Users and those specifically entered in Compralocas, or in case Compralocas deems it convenient, without having to justify such decision. The User will be exclusively liable for payment instructions and their consequences. Compralocas will not verify the cause or the obligation giving rise to the payment instruction, nor any other circumstances regarding the payment instruction. 

 

  1. d) Validity of the Request. The Payment Processing Request will not be deemed to have been validly made and Compralocas will not take on any obligation or responsibility whatsoever under the Request until Compralocas: (i) has accepted the User’s Payment Processing Request (it is expressly stated that Compralocas may refrain from accepting the Payment Processing Request without stating any reason and without incurring any liability), and (ii) has received the whole amount of freely-disposable Funds. 

 

  1. e) Liability for the Request. Compralocas will not be liable for any wrong or incomplete orders, instructions, Payment Processing Requests and/or payments resulting from the User’s provision of an incorrect e-mail address or inaccurate information on the recipient or on the payment transaction.

 

  1. f) Compralocas’s Liability for Payment Instructions. Compralocas will not be liable for or guarantee the performance of the obligations assumed by Users with third parties regarding the payments to be made or received through the Platform. The User acknowledges and accepts that all transactions conducted with other Users or third parties are made out of its free will, with its full consent and at its sole risk and liability. Compralocas will under no circumstances be deemed liable for any direct damage, lost profits or for any other damage and/or loss the User may have sustained as a result of transactions made or not made through Compralocas’s Platform. Since Compralocas is not a party to the obligation giving rise to the Payment Processing Request, it will not be held liable for, nor will it verify, the causes, amount or any other circumstances regarding the Request, or the existence, quality, quantity, working condition, status, integrity or legitimacy of the goods or services offered, acquired or sold by Users and paid for using Compralocas, nor the Users’ contracting capacity and the truthfulness of the personal data provided by them. Should one or more Users or a third party bring any kind of claim or legal action against another Users or Compralocas, each and every User involved in such claims or actions shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Compralocas and its directors, managers, employees, agents, operators, representatives and attorneys-in-fact (collectively, the “Compralocas Indemnitees”) against all losses directly incurred by the Compralocas Indemnitees in connection with such claim. 

Users will have a 60-day term from the date of purchase to file a complaint against one or more Users. Upon lapse of such term, Users will not be able to file a complaint on the Compralocas site.

  1. a) Delivery of Funds by the User. Once Compralocas has accepted a User’s Payment Processing Request, the User will have to send to Compralocas the amount of money necessary to meet the payment instruction. The User will deliver the Funds to Compralocas through the use of: (i) any of the means available to that effect and authorized by Compralocas; or (ii) the Funds available in its Compralocas Account, provided they are sufficient to meet all the instructions given in the Payment Processing Request; otherwise, the Request will not be processed.

Funds will be credited in the User’s Compralocas Account within four (4) business days from the date on which Compralocas receives the authorization of the method of payment used in the transaction. Find out about the Payment Methods with Which You Can Operate.

Compralocas will use all reasonable efforts to guarantee that the above term is met. However, the User understands that, due to certain factors, most of them beyond Compralocas’s control, there may be delays and, consequently, the User releases Compralocas from all liability for any resulting damage or inconvenience, except for Compralocas´s fraud or gross negligence.

Compralocas will deposit in the User’s Account the amount actually credited through the method of payment used, independently of the amount declared by the User where the method of payment used allows for the declaration of an amount of money different from that actually deposited.

In his or her Compralocas Account, the User may only receive payments or money through the tools enabled in the Platform. If Compralocas considers that a User may be irregularly using the mechanisms to add Funds, including but not limited to the publication or printing of the deposit slip to be used by Users not holding the Compralocas Account, Compralocas may apply the provisions set forth in Section 6(m) of these General Conditions.

The User undertakes not to apply any additional charge for accepting payments or receiving funds through the Platform.

 

  1. b) Fund Availability. Funds credited into a User’s Account will be available within the twenty-first (21) day following the purchase date.

 

The User may keep the Funds in its Account for no more than 30 (thirty) days from the date on whichthey were credited (the “Fund Availability Term”). Upon conclusion of this term, if the User so requests, Compralocas will transfer any balance in the Compralocas Account to the bank account previously registered by the User or issue a payment order in the name of the User addressed to any such bank as the User may choose.

 

In the event the bank account does not exist, is closed, non-operative or the like, and the User has not instructed Compralocas to issue a payment order in its name addressed to a specific bank, Compralocas: (i) may issue such payment order addressed to a bank Compralocas chooses, and (ii) will notify the User of the Fund availability through an e-mail sent to the e-mail address informed at the time of the User registration.

 

If the User making the payment informs that the transaction conducted through the Compralocas Platform was not completed, a claim will automatically be made under the Conflict Resolution mechanism specified in these General Conditions, and the Funds will be withheld by Compralocas. If the claim is settled in favor of the Seller, the Funds will be available (i) within the twenty-first (21) day following the purchase date, or (ii) at the date of resolution of said claim, when said date is later than the twenty-first (21) day following the purchase date.

 

Furthermore, for safety reasons, any Funds credited to the User’s Account and/or in the process of being credited (regardless of the method of payment used in the transaction) may remain unavailable for an indefinite period of time when, at Compralocas’s sole discretion, there is strong suspicion of illegality, fraud, excessive transactions or fraudulent transactions, and/or excessive requests for returns and/or chargebacks, or any other act contrary to these General Conditions, and/or a suspected violation of statutory provisions for which Compralocas may be held liable.

The User will be responsible for the payment of any fine, fee, penalty, damage, cost, or claim, that is applied to Compralocas by acquiring companies and/or credit brands, as a result of excessive levels of related chargebacks with the transactions made by the User.

 

Any information on available and credited Funds in a Compralocas Account will always be verified by the User through the Platform at www.compralocas.com with the User’s e-mail address and personal security code.

Compralocas and its related companies will not be liable for User conduct arising from or related to information contained in false e-mails or e-mails which appear to have been sent by Compralocas but which were actually sent by third parties unrelated to Compralocas or its related companies. In addition, Compralocas and its related companies will not be held accountable for any damage arising from any such conduct, or for the circulation of such false e-mails.

  1. c) Instructions regarding Funds. Compralocas will follow the instructions given by the User to: (i) make payment with or send the Funds held in its Account or deposited to that effect; or (ii) credit and/or receive the Funds in its Account. Upon registering on Compralocas and keeping an active Account, the User agrees to, accepts and authorizes the receipt of Funds sent by other Users to its Account and the debiting of any applicable charge.
  2. d) Withdrawals. Once the Funds credited in the User’s Account are available, the User may choose to: (i) withdraw all or part of the balance available in its Account; or (ii) keep the Funds for later use within the limit stated in Section 3 b). The User acknowledges and accepts that (a) all fund withdrawals will be subject to the prior payment of any debt owed by the User to Compralocas for whatever cause.

 

Withdrawals of Funds will be made by transfer to a bank account indicated in a timely manner by the User, or through a payment order in the name of the User, addressed to a bank of their choice. This transfer may take 3 business days after the withdrawal request is made or the Period of Availability of Funds has ended. Due to delays originated by the bank, Compralocas’s email (e-mail) confirming that the money is credited can reach the 4th business day since the withdrawal request was made. Any expense originated by the transfer or the payment order will be the responsibility of the User.

The withdrawal of Funds will be made via bank transfer to the bank account timely indicated by the User, or through a payment order issued in the name of the User addressed to the bank it chooses. This transfer may take 3 business days after the withdrawal request is made or the Period of Availability of Funds has ended. Due to delays originated by the bank, Compralocas’s email (e-mail) confirming that the money is credited can reach the 4th business day since the withdrawal request was made. Any expense originated by the transfer or the payment order will be the responsibility of the User.

For safety reasons, Compralocas may block the withdrawal of Funds requested by Users against whom a high percentage of claims have been recently filed through the Claims and Disputes system regulated in Section 6(r) hereof, and/or where it has been found that the requesting Users used the Services to commit fraudulent or unlawful acts and/or violations of these Terms and Conditions of Use.

  1. f) Transactions between Users. Any User who receives Funds as payment for the sale of goods by another User (the “Recipient User”) will send the goods only to the person who has purchased and paid for them (the “Sender User”) after checking in its Compralocas Account that the Funds are duly credited. 

 

Any Recipient User who sends goods without checking in its Compralocas Account that the Funds paid by the Sender User are credited will bear the entire risk of not being paid for the goods, releasing Compralocas and its related companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, parent and/or controlled companies and companies belonging to its economic group (currently or in the future) from any liability in this regard. 

 

You can check your available funds on statement.

 

If the Sender User does not receive the goods after it has deposited the Funds into the Recipient User’s Account, the Sender User may file a claim through the Buyer Protection Program, within twenty-one (21) days after payment was credited.Both the Sender User and the Recipient User must access Compralocas’s Platform with their e-mail addresses and personal password to verify that Funds have actually been transferred from and/or credited in their respective Compralocas Accounts, not been enough the information received through emails to have them verified.

Compralocas and its related companies will not be liable for User conduct arising from or related to information in false e-mails or which appear to have been sent by Compralocasthat are actually sent by third parties unrelated to Compralocas or its related companies.

Therefore, the Recipient User expressly authorizes Compralocas to debit Funds from its Account as may be required to cover any such annulment, chargeback, repudiation, or reversal, or to debit these sums from any future income if there are not enough funds in the Account; For the purposes of challenging the return of Funds, any evidence provided by the Recipient User in this respect to Compralocas to support its challenge will be important, but this will not entail that the Funds will be credited back or that Compralocas undertakes to object the funds’ return, even where the User has effectively furnished evidence. In the event of an annulment, chargeback, repudiation, or reversal, the Recipient User may be liable to Compralocas for the relevant sum plus any other applicable cost or expense. Compralocas may commence any court or out-of-court proceedings it may deem appropriate in order to be paid the amount at issue.

When you pack your product, make sure you respect the 3 maximum measurements allowed so that the collection will accept it when you ship it:

 

  • You can measure up to 330 cm adding the three dimensions (height, length x 2 and width x 2). We take as “length” the largest measure.
  • No side can be longer than 120 cm.
  • It can have up to 68 kg of real weight.

The package is the first contact the buyer has with your product, and in this case, first impressions count – leaving nothing to chance is the best way to ensure happy buyers! 

 

Packaging is a fundamental part of the shopping experience. Take into account these five factors to become an expert, and leave your mark from the minute zero.

 

PREVIEW

The first step is to have all the necessary materials available. If, instead of solving each wrapping at the bullfight and with what is at hand when the sale is made, you plan to buy the bags, boxes, tape and other necessary utensils beforehand, the results will be neater and the dispatches faster: a key factor for your reputation. By being proactive, you not only save time, but you can also save money, by buying in quantity, either in a trash can or from one of the many suppliers within Compralocas.

 

TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS

Your packages are going to travel many miles, so it is essential that the material left outside is resistant. Avoid wrapping the products in paper, because it is very likely that they will not resist the trip: plastic bags designed for e-commerce or stretch film are better options. You can buy bags from us. Official Store of Compralocas.

 

If you opt for a box, make sure it is strong enough to support the weight of what is inside and always close it with packing tape (painter’s tape or tweezers do not count as safe options in this case).

 

Keep in mind that the products move around a lot inside the box: to avoid knocks (especially if it is fragile!), fill in the gaps with a filler, such as paper or bubble wrap. If what you are shipping is a liquid, then always wrap the package with an insulating material, to avoid leaks.



PRESENTATION

The package is the first contact the buyer has with our product, and first impressions count. It is not merely an aesthetic issue: the presentation adds to the brand image and, above all, to the perception of quality. If they are good, this has a direct impact on the repurchase rate. That’s why it pays to give the packaging an extra helping hand. Searching for references or ideas on the Internet on how to present products in a pleasant way always adds value. It is not a question of investing a lot of money: simple resources such as a nice package, a label with a logo or an original detail are enough to give you a differential.



SUSTAINABILITY

A not insignificant item when assembling packaging is to take into consideration the impact it will have on the environment. Gestures as simple as choosing recyclable and biodegradable materials (replacing polystyrene with recycled paper buns, for example) and taking care that the dimensions of the packaging are proportional to the size of what we are shipping (to avoid inefficient use of materials), make a big difference.

LABELLING

The label is key in the logistic process of dispatch: it has all the information about the recipient, and it is the tool that allows to follow the route of the package.

 

It prints the labels as you see them when they are downloaded, without modifying the size. Make sure that the print is clear and that it is attached without wrinkles: this way, there will be no problems in scanning the barcode.

 

If you have a lot of sales, a thermal printer can be a good investment: it prints at high speed, directly on a roll of self-adhesive paper. More practical, impossible!

If you already have the thermal printer, you can configure it in your Free Market account, from the Market Shipment menu, within Sales. There, two types of files will be created: a .txt file for each label, to be sent to print directly, and a second file with a detailed summary of the tracking numbers and description of the products.

Product Listing

For each listing you will need to specify:

Product identifier: A global identification number such as a UPC, EAN, or ISBN number
Product title: A concise description of the product
Product description: The product description provides detailed information about the product.

Product images: Click here for requirement

Having good photos is key to make your product look good and have a quality publication.

Know the best tips to meet the goal, and get a better place in the listings.

If you have publications with photos to review, correct them as soon as possible so you don’t lose exposure!

Pure white background only

  • Your first photo should have a pure white background digitally created with an image editor. Make your product look great!
  • Photos taken in front of a wall, or in front of a white sheet could cause your publication to lose exposure.
  • Your first photo cannot show the product inside the package.

Don’t know how to edit your photos? There are several tools to do so on the Internet, for example Remove.bg, which allows you to create a pure white background in a few steps.

Don’t add extras to your images

Let nothing distract you from your product! Please note not to add:

  • Logos or watermarks.
  • Borders or banners.
  • QR codes.
  • Texts.

Do not include conditions of sale

  • Do not use promotional banners. If you have something else to say about your product, add it to the description.
  • If you need to say something about the shipping conditions, add it in the description.

Make sure they are not blurry

  • Make sure your photos are in focus and well lit. Not too bright, not too dark: make sure the product details look good.
  • To show off your product more, we recommend that your photos have 1200 x 1200 px so that your buyers can zoom in.

When you publish, we will ask that your images have at least 500 px on one side.

Shows only one model per photo

  • Use only photos of the product you are publishing and do not show several together.
  • If you want to offer other colors or models in your publication, you will have to create variants.

Only use photos that you have taken yourself

  • If you use photos from the Internet, make sure they are free to use and do not infringe on copyright. If you do, we may be able to pause your publication.
  • Be sure to avoid any claims by taking pictures of the exact product you offer.
  • Show it from different angles so that your buyers see exactly what you offer and so that brand owners can corroborate that you offer original products.

In the following photos

From the second image of your publication, you can show your product from different angles. Keep these general tips in mind for the rest of your images:

  • Show your product in context. Do it only from the second image. If you need to show its dimensions, make sure you complete the technical sheet.
  • Use the variants to upload the size and color of your product. This way, your buyers will also be able to find your publication using the search filters.
  • Do not include contact information. Keep in mind not to include data such as e-mails, telephone numbers, links to social networks in any of your images to avoid penalties.
  • Do not use images downloaded from the Internet. If you do, you may infringe copyright and we may pause your post. Only upload photos of your products that you have taken yourself.
  • Keep in mind the minimum size – make sure your photos are not blurry! They must be at least 500 pixels on one side. We recommend 1200 x 1200, so they can be zoomed. Remember that this point applies to all your images.
  • Show your product packaging. You can do this only from the second image.

The title is the key for buyers to find your product. That’s why it should be as explicit as possible.

Remember that you can make all the changes you need from the publication detail while you don’t have any sales.

  • Generate the title with Product + Brand + product model + some specifications that help identify the product.
    • Indicate the real brand of your product to avoid intellectual property violations and claims from your buyers.
    • If your product is generic or has no brand, always clarify that it is “compatible with” other brands.
    • Do not imply that your product is a different brand from the real one or mention brands over which you do not have rights or that do not correspond to your product.
    • Do not use other brands to describe your product or words such as: “simile”, “type”, etc.
    • Please note that these types of violations may result in the suspension or even disabling of your account.
  • Avoid using information from other services in the title, such as returns, free shipping or installment payments, because that information will be seen by your buyers next to the product, without having to enter the publication.
  • If your product is new, used or reconditioned, don’t include it in the title, upload it to the features and we’ll show it in the post detail.
  • If you sell the same product but with different colors, do not put the color in the title. It is better to create variants, so everything will be in one publication.
  • If you only have stock of a certain color, load the color when you publish or in the features section so that your buyers read the complete data sheet, but you can add it in the title since it would be a publication that only sells a variant.
  • If you make a discount we will also indicate it by showing the percentage of the promotion, we also have a special label to draw attention to it. There is no need to add it to the title.
  • Separate the words with spaces, do not use punctuation or symbols.
  • Check for spelling errors.

For example: Notebook HP Dual Core 425 LED 14 320 GB 4 GB Wifi HDMI

Write the important specifications in your data sheet, this way all the relevant information is well organized and easily available for your buyers.

Surely under the title you will find information to complete the technical file of your product. For example, if you sell cell phones, we will ask you to tell us which model it is, and what its internal memory capacity is.

With this information, your publication will be more complete and the buyer will have more information to choose from.

What information should I fill in?

Technical specifications

It is the information that identifies or describes your product, such as brand and model. Your buyers will find it in your publication.

If any of the information we ask you for does not apply to your product, don’t worry, you can indicate it by marking N/A, explain why and it will not affect your exhibition.

Product codes

They are unique codes that serve to identify each product from all the rest. It can be an EAN, ISBN, UPC, it depends on what you sell. You can find it next to the bar code, on the product or on its box.

The details, in the description

If you missed some details that you couldn’t put in the data sheet, the text-only description is the ideal place. Be brief and organize the information in the form of a list, separating it with dashes so that it is easy for the buyer to read.

Photos

Now you can upload up to 10 photos per product to show what you are selling, so the buyer can get to know it better.

Check out the tips for taking good photos. Follow our advice and enjoy these benefits.

By organizing information in this way you can benefit from all this:

  • Your descriptions will look good on all devices and download faster.
  • We can use the data to make search filters to find you more easily.
  • You will have better exposure, as completing your data sheet will give you a better place in the listings.

Just as people have a document number, products have a code that identifies them. Completing them will help us to know better what you are selling to give more information to your buyers. Don’t worry! We won’t show it in your publication.

If you sell cell phones, for example, and you tell us the brand, model and its code, we will be able to know exactly what you are selling and soon we will be able to show other specifications such as dimensions, screen size, etc. without you having to complete them.

How do I recognize my product code?

  •         It is numerical
  •         It is between 8 and 14 digits
  •         It can be an EAN, ISBN, UPC, depending on what you sell.
  •         It can be found next to the bar code, on the product box or on its packaging.

If you have any doubts, we recommend you check the manufacturer’s information. You can also download an application that scans barcodes to verify that it is an EAN, UPC, GTIN, ISBN, JAN or other.

What do I do if my product does not have a code?

We recommend that you contact the manufacturer or distributor to verify that your product does not have a code. If they confirm that it comes from the factory without a code, or your product is manufactured, you can indicate that it does not apply (N/A) when you complete your technical form or leave it incomplete.

What is the full code if I offer more than one product in a publication?

If you sell kits or combos, complete the code of the main product. If you offer the same product in different colors, materials, etc., we recommend you to create variants in your publications.

Do you have any doubts? Learn more about the universal code.

If you offer a product in different colors, materials, or other features that do not imply a change in price, include all its variants in the same publication. This is how it works:

  • Buyers will be able to see all the variants you offer in the same publication.
  • You will save time because you won’t receive any unnecessary questions.
  • You will accumulate sales and visits in the same publication.
  • It will help your reputation, because you will know exactly what the buyer wants and you will be able to dispatch them faster.

If you sell headphones, for example, add a variant for the color red, another for the color black, etc. If you sell jams, it could be their orange, peach or strawberry flavors.

How do I create variants?

When you publish…

When you publish some products (such as clothes, shoes, accessories) we will ask you to indicate colors, sizes and quantity for each combination.

Modifying the publication…

You can create variants in the detail of your publication. Along with your product’s features, you will find a menu of actions to Create Variants or “Create Custom Feature” to choose why your product varies. Note that you cannot create them from the mass editor or from the app.

Make your publications more successful and attractive

To achieve this, we recommend you:

  • Upload a photo for each color you publish. Tips for taking good photos.
  • Complete all the information you have about the product. Make a complete description and also tell us the technical specifications.

If you use your own shipping resources, you are expected to inform your customers and us of the arrival day through Compralocas vendor control panel.

We strongly recommend all products be delivered immediately upon receiving a paid order from the consumers. Failure to do so will result in blacklisting of your stores or even membership cancellation.

  • It has been tested to ensure proper operation.
  • Looks like new.
  • Includes the main accessories.

When assembling your publication…

Make sure you give all the information to the buyer so he or she knows what the product he or she is about to buy will look like.

  Condition

Select the “reconditioned” option. This way, buyers will be able to find you more easily with the search filters.

   Warranty

It is required that for this type of product you offer 90 days, or more! The longer the period, the more confidence you will give the buyers to choose you.

  Description

Use this space to tell all the details. Did you change all their parts or only some of them? Do they have any kind of defect?

Always keep in mind that if your description is incomplete, the buyer might want to return the product and this could affect your reputation.

You can do all this from your publication list. If you have many, we recommend you use the mass editor. 

Add stock

If you publish new products, they will automatically become inactive when you run out of stock. If you want to reactivate your publication, you can do it individually, or massively, from the mass editor.

If, on the other hand, you sell used products, your publications will automatically end when you run out of stock. If you want to reactivate them, you have to create a new post.

Pause

Once your products are published, you cannot pause them.

Remove

You can delete a post whenever it is inactive. Please note that once deleted, you will not be able to retrieve it.

Republish a product

You can republish without changes or modify the publication before doing so.

If it is inactive, and you want to reactivate it, make sure you do it before 60 days have passed, that way you will keep the sales, visits and questions pending. Keep in mind that if you edit the title we will consider it a new publication, and it will lose the amount of visits and accumulated sales.

Republishing a vehicle, property or service

If you republish within 60 days, you keep the visits.

But in addition, properties can be republished free of charge within 30 days, although without exposure on the home pages.

Learn how to modify your publications and choose the way that best suits your needs.

Products

You have several ways to modify your publications.

If you want to modify one by one, you can do it by entering the detail of each one from your publication list. There you can make changes, see and improve the quality of each publication.

However, if you need to make several modifications, or see many publications at once in table form, we suggest the mass editor. Just filter the publications you want to edit and choose Mass Modify. If you prefer, you can choose to do it offline with an excel spreadsheet by choosing, from the mass editor, Modify in Excel.

If you have already received sales, you can change everything except the category, the title and the condition (new/used).

Inactive publications

If you want to sell the same thing again, choose Reactivate. To sell something similar but not the same, choose Publish similar.

Properties and Vehicles

In the publications of the type ‘Publish it until you sell it’ of properties, you will only be able to change price and telephone. In the vehicle publications you can also change the mileage.

First of all, we do not allow what the law does not allow

If you have doubts about a product, first of all find out if it is legal to sell it. Basically, if the law doesn’t allow it, we don’t either. For example: drugs, prescription drugs, endangered animals and several others. Posting prohibited products is a violation of our policies.

It is very important that you are sure before you post because, in addition to removing posts that do not comply with our policies, each violation is recorded in a history and we can suspend your account.

Intellectual property rights are those that a person or a company has to protect its brands, logos, literary and artistic works, designs, images or inventions, among other creations.

That is why at Compralocas we have rules that prohibit offering counterfeit products or including content in your publication that makes an inappropriate use of trademarks or violates a copyright.

Know what you can do to publish without infringing third party rights.

Always offer original products

  • Please note that we do not allow you to offer forgeries, copies or replicas of other brands’ products.
  • Always keep your purchase invoice. We may ask you for it in case a right holder finds a possible infringement by a counterfeit product.

Avoid misusing trademarks in your publication

    • If your product is generic, but compatible with others of the brand you mention in your publication, clarify it in the title and in your description. You can use expressions like “compatible with the brand…” or “for the brand…” to clarify it. In these cases, also make sure you do not write the name of those brands in the technical specifications. 
    • If your product is generic, include that term in the “Brand” field or the name of your actual brand.
    • Avoid using words like “simile”, “type” or “replica” to refer to trademarks that you do not own.
    • If you sell customized products, make sure you do not include or use logos or trademarks on your products. For example, you may offer printed T-shirts, but you may not post a product that is using a trademark logo, or that could be confused with a trademark product.
    • If you edit the images in your post, make sure you do not use any third party logos or trademarks superimposed on your photos. Doing so may expose your publication to both trademark and copyright infringement.
    • Do not imply that you are an official distributor of a brand without proper authorization.

Create your own content in the publication

In this way, you can protect your publication from copyright infringement.

  • Take your own photos. Please note that if you download photos from the Internet, you may infringe the copyright of others. Learn more image tips.
  • Write the description yourself. If you copy your product description or, for example, synopsis copies of a book into your publication, you may be infringing on copyright.

As part of the Brand Protection Program, rights holders can report publications that they believe are infringing their intellectual property.

Learn about the step-by-step process of filing a report to find out what to do and what to expect at each step of the process.

  1. The rights holder sends the report

When you receive it, we will notify you by e-mail that we have paused your publication and you will see it marked as “Inactive by report” in the list of Publications. Find out the reasons for your complaint.

Make sure you answer on time. If your publication received a report and you do not respond within four days, it will be automatically cancelled.

  1. Send your response

To respond, you can send documentation that proves you are not infringing rights. For example, purchase invoices that prove that the product is original, or authorization from the rights holder to offer their products.

If you received a complaint about the images in your publication, you will also have the option of correcting them and sending them in response to the rights holder.

  1. Rights holder reviews your response

You will have four days to review what you sent and respond.

If you accept the response or do not respond within four days, your post will be reactivated.

If you do not accept the response or do not send your response in time, your post will be permanently removed from the site.

Managing your business

Customers will be expecting a quick and helpful response when they have questions about your products. To keep a good reputation you should have customer service specialists who know the products, the details of shipping methods, delivery times, and that can answer within a 24 hour range to customer inquiries.

Selling internationally also includes handling customer support. It is recommended that you have your own team to assist your customers on the products they have questions about.
