4. GEHT Marketplace Safe Payment Process

This policy constitutes an integral section of our Terms of Use. By utilising our Safe Payment Process, you consent to adhere to both this policy and our Terms of Use.

Two currency options are available for sales transactions: USD and EUR. Purchases should be made through the currency in which the product is listed on the Service.

Listing description and the minimum listing price requirement
When you intend to sell a product through our Service, it is mandatory to establish a listing. Each listing can encompass one or several products (including optional accessories or configurations) that you aim to sell. Every listing is assigned a unique reference number, which is referenced during sales transactions, and is tagged with a specific price. You have the freedom to generate multiple listings on the Service as per your preference. We strongly suggest reviewing and updating your listings on the GEHT Marketplace at least quarterly or more frequently if necessary to ensure their continued relevance.

To execute a sales transaction on the GEHT Marketplace, both the seller and the buyer are required to be registered with our Service. It is essential for users to supply precise and truthful information during the registration process, and they grant us the authorisation to confirm their identity through access to available public records. Users bear the exclusive responsibility to update their registration information promptly and accurately should any changes occur.

At GEHT International Ltd, we exert considerable effort to validate the correctness of the information supplied, fostering the Service's integrity, and minimising the potential risks of money laundering, fraud, and breaches of trade sanctions or export control regulations. We retain the right to deny access to our Service to any individual at any time and for any reason, and also retain the right to decline transactions perceived to be fraudulent, high-risk, or in contravention of our Terms of Use.

Delivery terms, method and package
The delivery terms is determined by the seller, typically following the F.C.A. Origin guidelines. You have the option to utilise your own carrier account or, if applicable, the supplier's carrier account for shipments. Please note that all delivery-related expenses are to be borne by the buyer. The approximate delivery costs can be deduced using the product's dimensions and weight specifications mentioned in the seller's product listing description. Furthermore, the seller is responsible for covering the costs associated with packaging for the delivery.

Payment method
GEHT International Ltd facilitates secure payment methods including wire transfers (occasionally referred to as bank-to-bank or T/T transfers) and credit card transactions. It is important to note that, regardless of the scenario, GEHT International Ltd does not act as a representative for either the seller or the buyer in any specific transaction. When utilising our Service, you acknowledge that users retain full responsibility for overseeing all aspects including payments, product returns, handling procedures, transportation, storage, warranties, insurances, as well as any associated fees, taxes, and permits.

GEHT Marketplace Safe Payment Process description
All transactions, including payments and deliveries, are facilitated through our dedicated Safe Payment Process. Each purchase is assigned a unique reference number, and every individual purchase (= content of the shopping cart which may consist of one or multiple products from the same seller) must be processed through the Safe Payment Process. This procedure is structured to safeguard the interests of both parties: it ensures that the seller receives the complete payment while guaranteeing that the buyer receives a product that corresponds accurately with the description provided in the listing. Both the buyer and the seller acknowledge that engaging in a sales transaction via our Service necessitates compliance with the stipulations of the Safe Payment Process. In instances where either party fails to meet the conditions outlined in the Safe Payment Process, GEHT International Ltd reserves the right to suspend the ongoing sales transaction.

Here's how the Safe Payment Process is carried out

  1. The Safe Payment Process commences when a buyer places an online order through the Service. Upon doing so, the buyer enters a legally binding agreement, thereby committing to fulfill the payment for the selected product.
  2. The buyer is required to transfer the payment amount in advance to GEHT International Ltd bank account, serving as a security measure to facilitate potential refunds (please refer to our “Return Policy” later in this document). The buyer consents to complete the payment in full via wire transfer to GEHT International Ltd bank account within 10 days of receiving the invoice. Alternatively, if choosing the credit card payment option, the buyer agrees to promptly settle the invoice using their credit card.
  3. Once GEHT International Ltd verifies the payment, the seller is granted authorisation to proceed with the delivery of the product to the buyer. The Service sends ”a Shipment Authorisation” notification to the seller's registered email address. This serves as an official go-ahead to either begin shipping the product from stock or to start manufacturing the product if there's a specified lead time for production. The seller commits to dispatching the product within the specified handling time, which commences from the moment they receive “the Shipment Authorisation” notification from the GEHT Marketplace. This handling time represents the predetermined number of days the seller has to prepare and dispatch the product after receiving the shipment authorization document. Furthermore, the seller is required to record the shipping date and the associated tracking number into the Service system at the time of dispatch.
  4. Once the product is delivered, the buyer has a window of 5 business days, referred to as the "Return Period," to confirm that the product aligns with the description provided in the listing.
  5. GEHT International Ltd will transfer the purchase amount to the seller's bank account once the return period concludes. The designated payment date is the 15th of the month succeeding the day on which the return period ended.

In instances where a buyer does not fulfill the payment obligation or delays the payment, we reserve the sole discretion to either cancel or freeze “the Safe Payment Process”, and/or suspend or terminate the user's account. Additionally, we retain the right to pursue reimbursement from the buyer under any of the following circumstances: failure to make payment, delayed payment, or non-compliance with the stipulations of our Safe Payment Process or the overarching Terms of Use. We may pursue reimbursement through any lawful avenues, inclusive of utilising collection services.

5. Fee Policy

This policy outlines the fees and payment obligations associated with using our Service and forms an integral part of our Terms of Use. By utilising our Service, you consent to both this policy and our Terms of Use.

Registration and listing fees
Registering and listing on our Service is free of charge, regardless of the number of listings.

Service fee
When a seller makes a sale through our Service, they incur a Service fee. This fee is calculated based on the listing price, excluding Value-Added Tax and any applicable banking fees. If the sales tax is incorporated into the listing price, the Service fee will be calculated using either the listing price or the final sale price. This Service fee will be reflected on your GEHT International Ltd invoice and will be deducted from the initial deposit made by the buyer. The specific fee varies based on the transaction's total value or product condition (new, used) as detailed in Table 1 below.

Banking fee
We impose a payment processing fee for each transaction processed through our bank account. Every transaction carries a flat fee of either 30 € or $ 30. When a buyer pays the deposit, the banking fee will be displayed on their GEHT International Ltd invoice. Similarly, a seller will see this banking fee on their GEHT International Ltd invoice. It is deducted from the buyer's initial deposit alongside the Service fee. It's important to note that you might also be responsible for any payment processing fees charged by your own bank.

Fee avoidance
All orders made via the GEHT Marketplace must be finalised within the platform. Conducting transactions outside of the GEHT Marketplace is expressly prohibited. You commit to ensuring that all GEHT Marketplace sales transactions remain within the platform. Any user attempting to transfer a transaction outside the GEHT Marketplace will be seen as evading fees and risks immediate account termination. In instances of fee evasion, we reserve the right to pursue reimbursement from the offending user through lawful channels, including employing collection services.

6. Return Policy

Under “the GEHT Marketplace Safe Payment Process”, a buyer may be entitled to request a return and refund if the received product deviates from its listed description, arrives damaged, or is missing parts. It's essential to note that, unless stated otherwise, all products on the GEHT Marketplace are sold "As is," implying no warranty. The term "As is" doesn't negate explicit warranties, such as those stemming from the seller's product description. If the product description is inaccurate, it may grant the buyer the right to return the item.

Upon receiving a product, the buyer is obligated to ensure it aligns with the listing description within a 5-business-day return window. If the buyer fails to inspect the product and communicate any discrepancies to both the seller and GEHT Marketplace within these 5 business days, It will be regarded as an irrevocable acknowledgment that the product has been received.

Should there be a claim of product nonconformity, the buyer must promptly submit a written notification (known as the GEHT Marketplace RMA report) within the specified return period to both the seller and the GEHT Marketplace at We furnish buyers with an RMA report template, which is provided alongside the order confirmation and invoice documents. We encourage buyers to liaise directly with sellers and adhere to their return guidelines, if applicable. For a detailed procedure on product returns and securing refunds, please refer to Table 2.

  1. Product verification. Within the return period of 5 business days, it's the buyer's duty to inspect the product. If the buyer does not inspect and subsequently provide written notification of any issues to both the seller and GEHT Marketplace within this period, it will be deemed an unequivocal acknowledgment of the product's compliance.

Should there be any discrepancies with the product, the buyer must promptly dispatch an RMA report to both the seller and GEHT Marketplace at within the designated return window. We supply an RMA report template to buyers, which is included with the Order confirmation and Invoice notification (wire transfer payment) or Payment & Order Confirmation notification (credit card payment). Until the return process is mutually settled by the buyer and seller, the associated funds for the transaction will be withheld.
  3. Agree on the return. We advise buyer to communicate directly with seller, seeking their specific return guidelines.
  4. Delivery method. The responsibility for covering return shipping costs falls on the seller. However, it's imperative for the buyer to coordinate with the seller to agree on the logistics before initiating the product return.
  5. Delivery. The product should be sent back unaltered, in the state it was originally received. This includes all original packaging, documentation, and accessories.
  6. Refund. Upon notification from the seller that the returned product has been received, GEHT Marketplace will process the refund. The original deposit amount will be credited to the buyer's bank account within 10 business days, after deducting a 30 € or $ 30 payment processing fee. The initial delivery charge borne by the buyer will not be refunded unless a separate agreement has been made between the buyer and seller.

Misuse of our return policy
Misuse of our return policy may result in consequences ranging from immediate suspension to termination of the buyer's account. In cases of abuse, we reserve the right to pursue reimbursement from the buyer through lawful channels, including enlisting collection services. Instances of policy misuse include, but are not limited to:

  1. Frequent returns: Continuously ordering and returning products, suggesting a pattern of exploitative behaviour.
  2. Damaging products intentionally: Deliberately damaging or altering items before returning them.
  3. Removing/replacing original parts: Ordering a product, taking out certain components, replacing them with inferior parts, and then sending the item back.
  4. Returning different items: Sending back a different product than the one that was originally purchased.

  6. Repurchasing at discounted prices: Returning an item bought at full price only to repurchase it during a sale or at a discounted rate.
