These terms are binding and cover all services offered by mCoves, its partner sellers and other companies managed or directly or indirectly affiliated with mCoves Marketplace. As partners, sellers, suppliers or businesses selling their products on mCoves can draft their individual policy, which governs only the products they sell on mCoves. However, policies drafted by our partner sellers are secondary to our Money Back Guaranteed policy. E.g. if a supplier, seller or business states on their policy that no refund will be allowed, and they did not fulfill the buyer's order or the order was not as described in the product listing, regardless of the seller's policy, in case of no fulfillment, the buyer gets their money back after 72hrs. In case of an item not as described, the buyer can request a refund of their payment and have the item returned to the seller, except on products listed for parts, broken, or non-working condition. Items listed as for parts, broken, or non-working have no return policy and all sales in such a condition are final. We value our customers, sellers and suppliers, and will work hard to facilitate a seamless business transaction.
