What you need to know to offer services on Moorest

Now that you have read your Moorest vendor agreement and associated policies and guidelines, we want to give you the additional information that is key to offer services successfully on Moorest.
We find that new traders on Moorest often bring their experiences from other trade channels and assume that all Moorest Portals work the same. They might think that there is no need to pay much attention to the details in your vendor agreement, policies, and guidelines. As a result, we receive communications from traders that begin with “I didn’t know I was supposed to…”
It would help if you did not find yourself in that position, so we present you with some of the regularly overlooked things by new traders.

  • Moorest customers expect all services to be provided to a high level and on time.
  • Service detail pages do not belong to a single trader. The service title, image, and details must be specific to the service and related products, not any individual trader.

  • When you set up your trader account, you will find information about service expectations that you will need to integrate into your order. You will also see that you are required to confirm with Moorest when you start and complete your orders to confirm progress with buyers.
  • You must confirm with Moorest that you have completed the service to be able to receive payment. This confirmation will also trigger Moorest’s service confirmation email to the buyer.
  • Review your policies and customize them to fit Moorest Portal.
  • Check your trader account at least daily for new orders.
  • Schedule order reports tracking orders and order information.
    • Offering any additional services outside of Moorest Portals while providing service
    • Relying only on email notification – emails can get lost or be deleted.

Customer Service

  • Moorest’s refund policies would allow for the refund if service were not completed to the advertised level. You are required to correct any outstanding activities to complete the service or accept the claim and provide a refund, in accordance with Moorest Refund Policy.
  • Moorest will provide all the order emails to customers; you must not send confirmation emails. This is to avoid conflicting messaging or confusion for the customer.

  • Be courteous and patient with customers when they request additional information, after-sale support, or guarantee claims.
    • Bribing customers for the positive feedback
    • Using customer communications for marketing purposes, directing customers to your own website, or a third-party website.
