  • Provide accurate information to AP’Varnam and our customers all times.
  • Act fairly and not misuse AP’Varnam’s features or services
  • Not attempt to damage or abuse another Seller, their listings or ratings.
  • Not attempt to influence customers’ ratings, feedback, and reviews and not to send unsolicited or inappropriate communications [Printed, Email, WhatsApp, Messages or all other communication medium].

  • Not attempt to circumvent the AP’Varnam sales process.
  • Not operate more than one selling account on AP’Varnam without a legitimate business need. Violating the “Code of Conduct” or any other AP’Varnam Policies may result in action against your account, such as cancellation of listings, suspension or forfeiture of payments, and removal of selling privileges. More details about these policies are below.
  • Accurate Information:

    You must provide accurate information to AP’Varnam and Our Customers, and Update the Information if it changes. For example, this means that you must use a business name that accurately identifies your business and list your products in the correct category.

    Acting Fairly:

    You must act fairly and lawfully and may not misuse any service provided by AP’Varnam. Examples of unfair activities include:

  • Providing misleading or inappropriate information to AP’Varnam or Our Customers, such as by creating multiple detail pages for the same product or posting offensive product images.
  • Manipulating sales rank (such as by accepting fake orders or orders that you have paid for) or making claims about sales rank in product titles or descriptions.
  • Attempting to increase the price of a product after an order is confirmed.
  • Artificially Inflating Web Traffic (for example using bots or paying for clicks etc)
  • Attempting to damage another Seller, their listings, or ratings.
  • Allowing other people to act on your behalf in a way that violates AP’Varnam’s policies or your agreement with AP’Varnam.
  • Ratings, Feedback, and Reviews:

    You may not attempt to influence or inflate customers’ ratings, feedback, and reviews. You may request feedback and reviews from your own customers in a neutral manner, but may not:

  • Pay for or offer an incentive (such as coupons or free products) in exchange for providing or removing feedback or reviews.
  • Ask customers to write only positive reviews or ask them to remove or change a review.
  • Solicit reviews only from customers who had a positive experience.
  • Positive review your own products or negative reviews for competitors’ products.
  • Communications:

    You may not send unsolicited or inappropriate messages. All communications to customers must be sent through Buyer-Seller Messaging and be necessary for fulfilling the order or providing customer services.

    Marketing communications are prohibited.

    Customer Information:

    If you receive customer information such as addresses or phone numbers to fulfil orders, you may use that information only to fulfil orders and must delete it after the order has been processed. You may not use customer information to contact customers (except through Buyer-Seller Messaging) or share it with any third-party.

    Circumventing the Sales Process:

    You may not attempt to circumvent the AP’Varnam Sales Process or Divert AP’Varnam customers to another website. This means that you may not provide links or messages that prompt users to visit any external website or complete a transaction elsewhere.

    Multiple Selling Accounts on AP’Varnam:

    You may only maintain one Seller Central account for each region in which you sell unless you have a legitimate business need to open a second account and all of your accounts are in good standing. If any of your accounts are not in good standing, we may deactivate all of your selling accounts until all accounts are in good standing.

    Examples of a legitimate business justification include:

  • You own multiple brands and maintain separate businesses for each.
  • You manufacture products for two distinct and separate companies.
  • You are recruited for an AP’Varnam program that requires separate accounts.
  • Filing Infringement Notices as an Agent or Brand Protection Agency:

    AP’Varnam understands that many brands may choose to have brand protection agencies or agents report intellectual property infringement on their behalf and accepts submissions from authorized agents. However, AP’Varnam does not permit individuals with active selling accounts to file infringement notices as an agent of a brand when the filing of those notices could benefit their own selling account (through removing competing listings, for example). Any sellers filing notices as an agent to benefit their own status as a seller may have their selling account terminated.

    Communication Guidelines:

    As part of selling on the AP’Varnam store, sellers communicate with buyers both directly and indirectly. AP’Varnam requires that sellers follow the guidelines below for any communication with buyers. The Communication Guidelines policy is meant to protect buyers from fraud and abuse, and to protect you from unscrupulous actions from your competitors. Raising the bar for all communications to buyers benefits all our selling partners, resulting in a stronger marketplace.

    Order status messages:

  • Problem with order messages: You must communicate to AP’Varnam Care if the product ordered is not available or if the product ordered is not available to be shipped. Firstly, adjust the full order amount using Manage orders via Order Adjustmentfeed. You must use Proper reason for unavailability of product. Secondly, followthese directionsand select Problem with order to communicate with the buyer about your inability to fulfil the order. The message must contain a confirmation that the order amount was adjusted with the appropriate reason for the unavailability of the items. If you think you can fulfil the order but the shipment will be delayed beyond the advertised availability, you must notify the buyer about the delay. If the buyer decides to cancel the order, you should then start the refund process.
  • Note: Do not contact the buyer and request that they submit a cancellation request when you are out of stock.

  • Return-related messages: In Case supplier is incapable to for deliver product due to stock unavailability or any other force measure reasons. AP’Varnam will initiate the refund process on the behalf of Supplier for the order amount (minus any charges). Followthese directionsand select Follow-up on return request.
    • Buyer-Seller Messages: You may only send Permitted Messages to customers who have contacted you about purchasing a product or who have already purchased a product from you on the AP’Varnam. We define Permitted Messages as those communications necessary to complete an order or to respond to a customer service inquiry.
  • Indirect communication:

    AP’Varnam communicates order-related information to buyers through their Account. These updates include information, such as when an order has been shipped (with the tracking number) or when a refund has been processed. These updates are based on shipping confirmations and refunds initiated using Manage orders or the following feeds:

  • Shipping Confirmation feed: This feed tells AP’Varnam that you have shipped buyer orders and provides order tracking information for the buyers. Timely communication of order status is an important part of a high-quality shopping experience for AP’Varnam’s buyers.
  • Note: We require you to promptly confirm shipment of all orders, either by using Manage orders or by uploading a Shipping Confirmation feed. After you confirm shipment, AP’Varnam sends a confirmation email to the buyer.

  • Order Adjustments feed: This feed tells AP’Varnam that you have issued buyer refunds. Buyers want to know their refund status when returning products. Therefore, it is critical that you process refunds promptly. You can also use Manage returns to issue a refund.
  • Failure to comply with these Communication Guidelines may result in AP’Varnam limiting proactive Permitted

    Messages to AP’Varnam’s templates or a suspension of selling privileges. AP’Varnam has the authority to block any message at its discretion.

    Customer Product Reviews Policies:

    Customer reviews are an integral part of the customer shopping experience on AP’Varnam. Customers use these reviews to learn more about the product, assess whether it fits their needs, and make an informed purchase decision. Customer reviews also help sellers understand the customers’ sentiment about their products, what features or aspects of the product customers like, and what areas need improvements. Reviews also provide sellers with ideas on how to improve their products. In order for customer reviews to continue to provide these benefits to customers and sellers, they have to remain a true and authentic reflection of customers’ experiences with the products.

    AP’Varnam'sCommunity Guidelineshave specific policies that are meant to protect the authenticity of Customer Reviews, and we ask you to comply with these policies and report any violations you might notice.

    We strongly urge you to thoroughly review AP’Varnam Customer Reviews policies and immediately correct any violating actions. It is important that you educate your business partners, employees, and any thirdparty partners you work with about these policies as well. Any infractions by your business partners, employees, or third party agencies will result in enforcement actions, even if it happened without your knowledge or consent.

    Violations to Customer Reviews policies include, but are not limited to, these actions:

  • A seller posts a review of their own product or their competitor's product.
  • A seller offers a third party a financial reward, discount, free products, or other compensation in exchange for a review on their product or their competitor’s product. This includes using services that sell customer reviews, websites, or social media groups.
  • A seller offers to provide a refund or reimbursement after the buyer writes a review (including reimbursement via a non-AP’Varnam payment method). This could be done via buyer-seller messaging on AP’Varnam or directly contacting customers or using 3rd party services, websites, or social media groups.
  • A seller uses a third-party service that offers free or discounted products tied to a review (for example, a review club that requires customers to register their AP’Varnam public profile so that sellers can monitor their reviews).
  • A family member or employee of the seller posts a review of the seller's product or a competitor's product.
  • A seller asks a reviewer to change or remove their review. They might also offer a refund or other compensation to a reviewer in exchange for doing so.
  • A seller diverts negative reviews to be sent to them or to a different feedback mechanism while positive reviews are sent to Amazon.

    Performance metrics

    The Account Health page provides you with visibility into your seller account's adherence to the targets for various product policies as well as the below performance metrics:

    Order Defect Rate

    The Order Defect Rate (ODR) is a key measure of your ability to provide a good customer experience. It includes all orders with one or more defects represented as a percentage of total orders during a given 30 day time period. The following are the types of order defects:

  • Negative feedback
  • An A-to-z Guarantee claim that is not denied
  • Credit card chargeback
  • Our policy is that sellers maintain an ODR under 1% in order to sell on AP’Varnam. An ODR above 1% may result in account deactivation.

    Cancellation Rate

    The Cancellation Rate (CR) is all seller-cancelled orders represented as a percentage of total orders during a given 30-day time period. CR only applies to seller-fulfilled orders.

    This metric includes all order cancellations initiated by the seller, with the exception of those requested by the customer using the order-cancellation options in their AP’Varnam account. Pending orders that are cancelled by the customer directly on AP’Varnam are not included and do not factor in the seller’s CR.

    Our policy is that sellers maintain a CR under 2.5% in order to sell on AP’Varnam. A CR above 2.5% may result in account deactivation.

    Late Shipment Rate

    The Late Shipment Rate (LSR) includes all orders with a ship confirmation that is completed after the expected ship date. LSR is represented as a percentage of total orders over both a 30-day period.

    LSR only applies to seller-fulfilled orders.

    It is important to confirm the shipment of orders by the expected ship date so that customers can see the status of their shipped orders online. The following results can occur due to an order with a confirmed late shipment date:

  • Increased A-to-z Guarantee Claims
  • Negative feedback
  • Customer contacts
  • Negative customer experience
  • Our policy is that sellers maintain an LSR under 5% in order to sell on AP’Varnam. An LSR above 5?n result in account deactivation.

    Valid Tracking Rate

    The Valid Tracking Rate (VTR) includes all shipments with a valid tracking number represented as a percentage of total shipments during a given 30-day time period. VTR only applies to seller-fulfilled orders.

    AP’Varnam customers depend on tracking numbers to find out where their orders are and when they can expect to receive them. The Valid Tracking Rate is a performance metric that reflects those expectations. Supplier should maintain the >95% VTR.

    On-Time Delivery Rate

    The On-Time Delivery Rate (OTDR) includes all shipments delivered by their estimated delivery date represented as a percentage of total tracked shipments. OTDR only applies to seller-fulfilled orders.

    We consider OTDR performance when determining which Transit Times you are eligible to set, which may enable you to promise faster delivery times and improve your conversion.

    We recommend that sellers maintain an OTDR greater than 97% in order to provide a good customer experience, however, there is no penalty for not meeting the performance target at this time.

    Address buyer feedback:

    Certain negative performance metrics are caused by a buyer’s feedback based on their experience. Sellers should try to determine the cause of the problem.

    Monitor your account health:

  • Order Defect Rate
  • Cancellation Rate
  • Late Shipment Rate
  • On-Time Delivery
  • Valid Tracking Rate (VTR)
  • Improve your performance
  • Create a plan of action to reinstate selling privileges
  • Supply chain standards:

    In addition to complying with other program policies, AP’Varnam expects all products that are sold in the

    We will not allow products in the AP’Varnam Store that are made:

  • Using forced, indentured, or child labour.
  • In hazardous or unsafe working conditions.
  • In a facility where workers were subject to discrimination or abuse

  • Auditing protocols, processes for assessing facility working conditions, or participation in an approved industry association that requires factory monitoring.
  • Factory information for where products are produced or manufactured.
  • Unannounced audits of the factory in question, potentially including unsupervised worker interviews

These include, but are not limited to, returning inventory at your expense, immediately suspending, or terminating selling privileges, destroying inventory in our fulfilment centres without reimbursement, or terminating the business relationship.

  • Shipping orders with packing slips, invoices, external packaging, or other information indicating a seller name or contact information other than your own.
