Common violations and ways to avoid them
Identity Ambiguity and Account Sharing: Be truthful! by providing your correct and authentic information and use a clear-cut photo of yourself.
Do not allow anyone else to use your account, in other words no account sharing, and do not ever log into one of your clients' accounts on their behalf. Instead, have them add you to their team with the appropriate permissions. Promptly respond to all requests to phone verify or ID verify by Wozali.
Always collect payment while you’re negotiating; If a client offers to pay you after taking the product, it is your responsibility to decline and you must inform us, if Not, you will be in breach of Wozali User agreement and Terms of Service.
Failing to give the product as discussed: When you say, you have a product or item, you vow to provide a good quality service/ or item. In addition, you must precisely and truthfully describe your product, your skills and qualifications, and the services you offer. Misrepresenting your abilities or failing to provide the product, can result in low client satisfaction and payment disputes.
Contact Information Sharing: Keep contact with potential clients only Wozali. Your profile can contain your phone, email, or other direct contact information, for example Skype IDs etc...
Spam and Harassment: Treat everyone with respect and professional courtesy in all types of communications; Customize your applications to the needs of each buyer and seller.
Feedback Abuse: Great feedback is earned, not forced! Do not pressure buyers to give you good feedback, and do not withhold your product or item until feedback is left.
