PRODUCT LISTING GUIDELINES
Product Listing Creation:
At GridRay, we strive to provide buyers with a comprehensive resource of all product listings that are currently marketed or sold and fit within a specific category. To ensure the most helpful buyer experience, we will determine whether a product is a logical fit for a category. We may create these listings from publicly available information or work with the brand/seller to create and/or update a listing that is accurate and best reflects the product’s features.
Criteria for Posting Product Listings on GridRay or on Other Selling Platforms: • When adding or modifying a product listing or its variation, any addition, editing or modification must not change the product’s basic nature and must provide a true overview of the product. While small enhancements to the product’s content are allowed, replacing it with an entirely different product is not allowed and may be considered a policy violation as it could be misleading to customers. • IMAGE: Product images should accurately reflect the product’s appearance in the real world. Additional elements may be added to the image as long as they are not misleading to customers about what they will actually receive. • Product Description: If you rewrite a product description, it should be meaningful, accurate, and not misleading to customers. Any content that is offensive, obscene, or defamatory or any content that is illegal or harms the image or business of GridRay and its users is a policy violation. • Selling a product above MRP (Maximum Retail Price) or below MSP (Minimum Selling Price) provided by the authorized seller or company is a policy violation and may result in order cancellation or even lead to account suspension or termination if found repetitively.
Additionally, we allow authorized resellers of products to participate in our lead generation programs. However, when the parent company requests lead generation for their product or services, the parent company takes precedence and, if required by the parent company, the reseller will be disabled for that company’s product.
Please note that while our sites serve as a platform to host product listings, we are not responsible for ensuring the legal and/or regulatory compliance of these products. For information on a product’s legal and/or regulatory standing, site users will need to check directly with the brand/company or by visiting their website.
PRODUCT LISTING REMOVAL
Our aim is to provide a comprehensive resource for both buyers and sellers, and to achieve this, we believe it is important to maintain all product or service listings that fit within a category and are currently being marketed or sold. We work closely with product sellers to ensure that their listings are up-to-date and accurately reflect the features of their products.
In cases where a seller is no longer in business or the product listed is no longer being sold by the product company, we may either remove the product listing from the catalogue or keep the listing and indicate that the product is no longer available or discontinued.
However, we reserve the right to modify or remove a Product Listing and/or Product Profile if we determine, in our sole discretion, that the listing or profile does not comply with our guidelines. Generally, we only remove product listings or profiles if they do not fit within our existing product categories, or if there is evidence that a brand’s product is no longer being actively marketed or sold to the public.
If, during our ongoing maintenance and review of our catalogue, we find that an existing product listing no longer fits within a category or is no longer legitimate, we will review and remove it as necessary.
