If paying by bank transfer, the payment must be settled within 7 days, unless agreed otherwise between buyer and seller (the item should still be marked as "paid").

If the seller is not able to ship within the timeline, this must be noted in their account during account setup (can be changed any time should circumstances change).

How long do I have to cancel my order?

Your order is canceled in the following cases:

  1. Your order is automatically cancelled if the seller does not respond to offer within 72 hours
  2. Your order is automatically cancelled if the payment is not made within 7 days
  3. Your order is cancelled if there is an agreement between buyer and seller. In this specific instance the transaction is noted as void.
  4. There may be other reasons why a transaction is cancelled. For any additional information please contact

By EU law, there is a requirement to allow 14 days cancellation in certain cases. In the event of a dispute, these cases will be dealt with on an ad hoc basis. There is no need to mention this explicitly in emails or within product, this is just a statutory requirement.
