10. Wallapop Shipping
Wallapop makes use of a courier service, that operates via Correos in order to deliver items purchased within the application.
During the purchase process, the user can use this shipping service for their deliveries. It is essential the whole transaction is carried out via the Wallapop chat and that the purchase is made in the wallapop app.
Mangopay is a platform that allows secure payments between Users via the internet, providing both the buyer and seller have registered with Mangopay and accepted the terms and conditions of the platform.
(Mangopay, property of Leetchi Corp, company based in 14 rue Aldringen, L-1118, Luxemburgo).
Wallapop informs their Users that they do not offer electronic payment systems nor do they act as an intermediary in such payments. Hence, Users who use the Mangopay platform enter into a contract with Mangopay with respect to their payment services and terms and conditions, of which wallapop forms no part.
As a result, any claim or dispute that is raised in relation to the services supplied by Mangopay must be made directly to them.
For security reasons, Mangopay may require the user to supply identification in order to process a transaction. This request, will be made when the total amount of the transactions made reaches or exceeds 1000 (one thousand) euros in sales or 2500 (two thousand five hundred) euros in purchases. Or, when a request is made by the platform (generally due to the detection of unusual activity for the payment method in question).
This document will be required by our Customer Service team who will manage the request with Mangopay.
Once you have chosen the delivery service, the app will send a tracking number to both the buyer and the seller, so that the item can be located at all times. The buyer will receive the item to the address supplied at the time of payment.
Weight limit: 30 kg per package.
– from 0 to 2 kg = 2,95€
– from 2 to 5 kg = 3,95€
– from 5 to 10 kg = 5,95€
– from 10 to 20 kg = 8,95€

The largest measurement may not exceed 170 cm and the total of the three measurements no more than 270 cm. If the correct weight limit is not specified, Correos will not accept the parcel for delivery.
How to sell step by step:
Just like with any transaction, when a user is interested in buying one of the items the seller is selling on Wallapop, the seller will receive a notification via the Wallapop chat that allows them to access a screen from which they can see all details of the offer received.
This screen will show the name of the user buying, the price offered for the article and whether they would like to use the shipping service.
– Delivery option. “Correos” must be selected if shipping has been requested in the offer you have received.
– Weight of the item for delivery.
– Sender’s return address. You must supply a valid return address for the package; in the case of it not being collected it will be returned to sender.
– The shipping costs are free to the seller and in this case you will see the message “It’s free!”.
Preparing the item for shipping:
The maximum weight allowed for each item shipped is 30 kg (per package).
The seller must be careful to select the correct package size in order to avoid additional costs from Correos.
So that the item arrives in the best conditions possible, it is recommendable to package it using specialised envelopes or padded envelopes. It is important to prepare the item carefully for shipping so that it does not suffer any damage during the transit process.
Wallapop will not be responsible in any case for damages caused as a consequence of incorrect or insufficient packaging.
Taking the package to Correos
The time limit to take the package to Correos is five calendar days from the date of the sale of the item. After this time limit of five days the code for Correos will no longer be valid and the amount will be automatically returned to the buyer.
It’s very important to respect the time limit: if it is not respected the transaction will be cancelled and the buyer will have to repeat the whole transaction process.

Step by step how to use the Wallapop Shipping service:
A buyer who wants to purchase an item via the Wallapop application can begin a conversation with the buyer as usual, via the Wallapop chat, from where you can also confirm and buy your purchase. This step is essential in order to be able to use the Wallapop Shipping service.

The administration fee is based on the price of the purchase. It is essential to have made the payment via wallapop in order to use the shipping service.
Wallapop will generate an invoice to the buyer (if required) for the administration fees associated with using the shipping service. This document will be sent via email and will be separate from the email you will receive at the time of purchase, which will not be considered as an invoice.
If the buyer has any questions about the terms and conditions of use of the Wallapop payment service, they can check the payment services, below the total price to pay via the link “Terms and conditions of use” of Wallapop.

Tracking your delivery:

Additionally, the buyer will receive an SMS when the package is received by Correos and the shipping process begins. Receiving these messages if free of charge.
It is also possible to check the status of your package via the package locator on the Correos website.
If the parcel is not successfully delivered:
In the case of two failed attempts at delivery are made to the buyer’s address, the package will be kept at the Correos office in order to be collected by the buyer who will be advised of the delivery attempt. If the buyer does not collect the package within 15 days, it will be returned to the sender, they will not receive payment, and the costs for delivery and return of the package will be transferred to the buyer.
Consequently, in the case of the buyer not collecting the package they have been sent, they will become liable for the costs of the delivery and the return to sender.
