HOW THIS WORKS
1. What is the eligibility criteria for me to sell on DuaVivo?
All users wishing to sell through DuaVivo have to be members of DuaVivo. Please see our membership section for more details.
2. How can I sell through DuaVivo?
There are three modes of selling through DuaVivo
Dua Store: Sell it as a consignment (through us).
Dua Direct: Go for the direct selling route (by listing through a very simple format) .
Dua Swap: If you’d like to bring home something in return for what you sell, swap it with a buyer.
3. What can I sell?
You can sell luxury goods of particular brands. By goods we mean, products of the following categories: Bags, Sunglasses, Shoes, Watches & Accessories
4. How long will it take to sell my item?
Every product is listed for a period of 60 days. We try our best to crack the deal at the earliest. However, 30 days is the time we promise as the sale depends on the condition and price of the product.
5. Does DuaVivo purchase my item from me directly?
DuaVivo does not engage in purchase of products from customers as our business rule and policy is strictly to be a facilitator and service provider. We take products on consignment for a period of 60 days. However, in some cases if we feel we can make an exception, we will consider purchasing the product directly from the seller.
6. Who will decide the selling price of my item?
DuaVivo’s valuation team, consisting of experts in the field of luxury, gives the best price possible to every product. This is done in order to maintain fair and uniform pricing and make the selling process for the seller as well as the buyer a pleasurable experience. Our pricing strategy works in a way such that every seller feels satisfied with the amount realized from the sale and the buyer, too, gets a good bargain from his/her purchase.
We aim to keep our pricing at around 50% of the market price, keeping in mind the best interests of the seller as well as the buyer. A 16% Consignment fee is charged on the sale value is charged on every product which is on consignment.
If you are curious about the pricing of a specific item, we encourage you to browse through DuaVivo at www.duavivo.in for similar items and to get an idea of the market price. Alternatively, email us at email@example.com with a few photos and description of your product and we will get back to you with a tentative pricing.
7. How is confidentiality maintained?
We understand how important confidentiality can be for you. This is the reason why we maintain confidentiality of customers who choose to use our services through Dua Store. To maintain confidentiality for whatsoever reason and to let us crack the deal for you, we charge a fee.
8. Does DuaVivo keep my item or do I?
If you are selling under Dua Store, DuaVivo will display the product at the stores. In Dua Direct and Dua Swap, the sellers keep the product with them until a purchase request has been raised/ made.
9. How long will DuaVivo keep my item?
Under Dua Store, once the consignment contract has been signed between the seller and DuaVivo, we keep the product with us for a period of 60 days. At the end of 60 days, if the product has not been sold we display it for 30 more days only if the seller agrees to a reduction in price. Otherwise, the product is immediately shipped back to the seller.
10. Where will DuaVivo keep my item?
DuaVivo will display most products at the store, to further encourage and promote sales of the product. The products not on display at the stores are carefully stored in our warehouse.
11. How long does it take for you to process my Items?
It takes up to 4-10 days of transit time for us to receive your prized possession. Once we receive it, we'll send you a confirmation email so that you know that we have received it. Then, it takes up to 1 week to process your items. Upon review, we'll send you another email telling you the status of your items!
12. How do I know which items has DuaVivo accepted and which rejected?
To see a breakdown of your sell order, go to your Account page and click on the “Submit it” tab.
13. Can I send you brands that aren’t on your list?
Yes, you can. However, before we can accept the brands that are not on our list our team will inspect and assess the brand and the product. Only then will we allow it to be displayed on our portal.
14. Are all items on DuaVivo used?
All products coming onto our portal will be pre-owned. However, there may be cases in which the products are unused.
15. How often is new inventory added?
We are constantly adding new items, so check back often since no two items are alike. What you see today will be different from what is available any other day.
16. Why should I sell from my closet?
Upgrading to something else, wanting to go for a different colour, a larger size or let’s say just for a change. There are enough reasons for you to sell.
17. When and how do I get paid when selling through Dua Store?
Once the product has been sold to the buyer successfully, the mutually agreed upon amount is transferred to your account within 15 days of sale.
18. What about payment under Dua Direct/ Dua Swap?
When members are transacting independent of DuaVivo, we do not get involved in the payments. We only provide Value Added Services at a nominal cost ( actuals)
19. How do I send my products to DuaVivo?
When you are selling through Dua Store, you can schedule a pickup with us. Pack your items and let us handle the rest. When selling through Dua Direct and Dua Swap, we can help you.But these services come at a cost.
20. Do I have to pay to ship my items to you?
For members selling via Dua Store, pick up is free. All you have to do is put your items in a box and arrange a pick-up with us. We do the rest!
Members selling via Dua Direct and Dua Swap can buy the Value Added Services offered by DuaVivo for pickup and/ or delivery of the products.
21. How will I know when DuaVivo has received my items?
We will send you an email letting you know it has arrived! Please note that it can take up to 4-10 days for us to receive your box.
22. Can I have a shipping address different from the registered postal address?
Yes, of course. At checkout, we give you the option to enter the desired shipping address. If the address is the same as your registered address, simply click on the checkbox that says “Same as registered address”, and if not, then enter the desired shipping address in the box provided.
23. How long does it take for a product to be shipped, once the order is placed?
We know how excited you are to start using the product you just ordered and thus we try to keep the delivery time very short. However, once the product is ordered, delivery can be made in anywhere between 4-6 days from the date of placing the order.
24. Can I create a wish list?
Yes, you can. Create a wish list if you haven’t made a decision and are considering buying the product in the near future. We’ll notify you with an update and help you get what you wish for
25. Do you reduce the price?
No. We have no authority to do so. The final price for selling is quoted by a third party and not us.
26. What does it mean if an item is ‘Unavailable'?
Because each item on our site is unique, only one person can purchase each item. When an item is added to someone's cart, it appears as 'waiting list' for 12 minutes to everyone else, so that multiple people cannot claim it. Once the purchase is completed, the item will be removed from the marketplace. If the potential buyer decides not to purchase the item we remove it from the cart after 12 minutes, and make it available allowing others to purchase it once again.
27. I need help, what do I do?
You can find answers to your questions at the FAQ section. If that doesn't help, you can get in touch with us through email or contact us over phone.
28. Is my data secure with DuaVivo?
Yes, it is. We make sure your data is kept secure by our team.
