We want to build a friendly and positive community here at Icaremalls! Thats why we have come up with Community Rules as a guideline for all buyers and sellers in order to preserve this safe environment to buy and sell on-the-go. Go through this outline for the Do's and Dont's when using our mobile marketplace by using Icaremalls, you agree to our Terms of Service here. We are committed to keeping our community safe with everybody's effort.
1. Sell, not advertise
Icaremalls is designed as a venue to assist transactions between buyers and sellers - not a platform for advertisements. You should only list products that you are intending to sell on Icaremalls.
Here are some examples of advertising:
- Adding a link on your product page that leads to a separate website.
- Any text in your product description and/or photos informing buyers to reach you via other platforms such as Whatsapp or Facebook. (We understand the need for buyers and sellers to communicate with one another. The Chat Now function in Icaremalls provides an easy way for both parties to connect!)
2. Make your listing shine
No buyer will be interested in a listing that has poor quality photos. Flaunt your photography skills and create some quality shots. Aside from that, be honest! Give your product an accurate and detailed description. Nobody likes a nasty surprise when it comes to making a purchase. Being truthful will increase your chances of obtaining positive ratings and reviews from your buyers.
3. Be respectful
We want to foster a safe environment for people to enjoy the pleasure of mobile shopping. Keep your content clean and suitable for everyone - this means no vulgar language, hate messages or spam. As a community in Icaremalls, we urge all users to treat each other with kindness and respect. Whether you're a buyer or seller, follow the guidelines here to ensure smooth transactions for everyone!
4. Maintain an excellent selling record
Create a good customer experience by being attentive and responsive to your buyers' needs. Happy buyers are more likely to make repeat purchases and give you a positive seller rating.
Keep your selling record clean by maintaining sufficient stock and by shipping orders on time to reduce unnecessary cancellations, returns and refunds. To ensure a great experience for all users, Icaremalls may send a caution to sellers with poor selling records. In some cases, Icaremalls may also remove certain selling privileges (e.g. free shipping, preferred seller), lower your products' search ranking, limit or suspend your account access.
Here are some tips to maintain an excellent selling record:
1. Monitor and update your stock at least once a day
2. Provide a detailed and honest description, including actual pictures, of the items you are selling
3. Respond to buyers' queries in a timely manner
4. Ensure your products are in good condition before shipping
5. Pack orders carefully to avoid damage during delivery
6. Respond promptly to any refund requests
7. If you have to cancel orders due to unforeseen events, inform buyers immediately with a valid reason
1. Putting irrelevant or an excessive number of search terms in the title and description
It is important that users are able to quickly find what they are searching for. Putting in additional brands, keywords or hashtags in the title or description that are irrelevant to the product interferes in this process and may lead to products being banned by our system.
Examples of what not to do include:
- Nike Adidas Puma Reebok Under Armour Running Shoes

2. Creating multiple listings of the same product
Please do not create multiple listings of the same product. Such listings may be automatically banned by our system.

4. Infringing content & impersonation
Any deceptive manner of impersonation is a serious offence in Icaremalls. If you choose to use someone else's photo, respect their rights and give credit where it's due.
Here are some examples of infringing content & impersonation:
- Collecting and using others' personal data without their consent (e.g. contact details, photo).
- Using someone's identity as your own for credibility purposes.
