Machineseeker marketplace rules

Specific offers only

Please only enter specific offers into the database. Listings that consist of general advertising such as „All types of XY machines“ will not be published. For each listing, either a specific machine or a fixed package of several machines must be offered. In case of a machine package, a clear description of the associated machines in the listing text is required. However, experience has shown that individual machine listings attract considerably more attention than machine packages.

Advertisements should always include a clear technical description

When submitting an listing to Machineseeker, always include a clear description of the machine in the field „Technical data“. We do not allow listings which provide no technical data. Here you can find useful tips for creating sales-boosting listings.

Anonymous listings and listings with alternative modes of communication are not permitted

When submitting an listing, always include your full name and address. Anonymous listings are not permitted.

No phone numbers, fax numbers, e-mail addresses or internet addresses should appear in the text of an listing

Listings may not include phone numbers, fax numbers or e-mail addresses. Your contact data is automatically generated from your customer account and displayed in the finished listing too. Therefore, an additional entry of your contact data in the listing text is not necessary.

No internet addresses in listings

The listing text and the pictures of the offered machines may not contain internet addresses. If you are interested in logo advertising for your homepage, you can book it here.

No references to other listings

Listings may not contain references to other listings of a seller. Furthermore, references to online stores of the seller or other trading platforms are not permitted.

New, demonstration and ex-display machines may not be categorised as used machines

Sellers are obliged to indicate clearly whether a machine is new, demonstration or ex-display. Please use the options in the input field Condition. New, demonstration and ex-display machines may not be grouped as used machines.

Deleting sold machines

Please delete (or pause) listings for machines that have been sold as quickly as you can. We try to keep our database as up-to-date as possible, so expired offers are extremely unwelcome and prohibited in our Terms & Conditions.

Deleting machine listings – instead of cancellation

Immediately uploading previously deleted advertisements is not permitted, as this constitutes an unfair trading practice.

Company logos may not be used in machine pictures or as pictures of machines

Do not use logos instead of pictures of machines. The placement of company logos in machine images is also prohibited.

Only upload pictures which you are authorised to use.

Photographs for which the manufacturers or your competitors hold the copyright may only be uploaded with the express written permission of the copyright owner.

No "dummie" or "wildcard" pictures

Pictures of machines that only contain text such as "Photo coming soon" are not permitted.

Never copy texts from your competitors

Please write your own technical descriptions of the items that you are offering for sale. Copying texts and sections of text from the listings of other sellers is forbidden and usually results in awkward situations that are best avoided.

No keywords / search terms should be listed in listings

Only include technical descriptions which are specific to the machine you are offering. Using lists of keywords or search terms is not permitted. The inclusion of listings for other machines, products, consumable materials and general advertising is also not permitted.

No company names and word repetitions in listing title

The naming of one's own company name as well as word repetitions in the listing title are prohibited. Manufacturers are excluded from this regulation.

Select the right machine category

Please make sure to place your listing in the right categories – in your own interest.

None 1€ listings

Please do not indicate 1€ prices in the listings. Listings which show 1€ as purchase price (also as fixed price or negotiating basis) will not be activated. If you do not want to enter a price, please leave the price field blank. Then the note "Price info" will automatically be displayed for your listing.

No promotional titles in listings

Enter meaningful information and no promotional formulations in the machine designation as well as in the manufacturer and machine type. Only then your machines can be found by potential buyers via the search function.

Accessible telephone numbers in contact data

When entering your contact details, please make sure that you enter an accessible telephone number.

Additional marketplace rules for Buy-it-Now listings

Absolutely no contact information

It is not allowed to include any contact information in Buy-it-Now listings. In addition to telephone numbers, fax numbers, cell phone numbers, and e-mail addresses, this prohibition includes your own company name, your own company logo, your own address, and the names of contact persons. Likewise, pictures, videos, and file attachments shall not contain any contact information. Notes such as "Refurbished by [own company name]" are not permitted.

Location information in the section "Machine location" must be limited to city and country (e.g., Essen, Germany). It is not allowed to enter the exact address including street, house number, and postal code.

Detailed description

Buy-it-Now listings sell especially well if you include a content-rich description. Describe your Buy-It-Now listings in detail to facilitate uncomplicated sales and reduce your workload. Build confidence by making sure spelling and grammar rules are used correctly.

Recommended contents:

  1. Precise category classification
  2. Detailed technical description
  3. Areas of application, buyer groups (e.g., DIY, craftsmen)
  4. Descriptive image and video material (high quality)
  5. Optional: Compatibility with other machines, accessories, etc.
  6. Explanation regarding condition
  7. If applicable: Number of hours run

Single item listings only

Buy-it-Now listings must refer to individual items or assembly groups. A bundling of different items in one listing is not effective for Buy-it-Now listings and therefore prohibited.

Please always list items or assembly groups by creating an individual, new Buy-it-Now listing. This ensures that each new Buy-it-Now listing is assigned its own listing ID and, hence, purchases or purchase requests can be unambiguously attributed.

Conditions for simultaneous offerings on other platforms

Goods listed via Buy-it-Now may only be offered simultaneously on another online platform or in your own online store if the following conditions are met:

  1. The seller must ensure that the goods offered on Machineseeker are always available.
  2. Should an item be sold on another platform or via the own online store, the Buy-it-Now listing on Machineseeker must be deactivated immediately.
Note: All other marketplace rules also apply to Buy-it-Now listings.
