When buying or selling items on our classified website, Meditree, it’s important to take some precautions to ensure your safety. Here are some guidelines to follow:

Safety When Buying:

Understand the Market

Conduct research on the item you would like to purchase before visiting Meditree. It’s important to know what comparable items are currently selling for and their value so you can easily identify any listings that may be too good to be true. Scammers often post listings with prices that seem too good to be true.

Research the Product

Make sure you know exactly what should come with the item you are purchasing, such as accessories and cables, and learn how to spot counterfeit products if you’re looking for high-end items.

See the Item in Person Before Payment

You don’t want to be stuck with a damaged, defective, or incomplete item. Always opt to see the item in person before making any payments to ensure you are getting exactly what was advertised.

Be Careful with Personal Information

It’s important to be cautious when giving out personal information, such as your bank details, ID number, or home address. Only provide this information to reputable and legitimate individuals or businesses and keep in mind that Meditree representatives will never ask for your banking information or passwords.

Use Meditree’s App Features

For added safety, use the Meditree chat feature (found in the app) to conduct all conversations so you can track the details of the seller. This can come in handy if the seller turns out to be a scammer, as you can report the crime to Meditree and the police.

Choose Secure Payment Methods

To ensure the safety of your transaction, use secure payment methods, such as PayPal or Venmo, and avoid paying or accepting cash.

Safety When Selling:

Accurately List the Item If the item you’re selling has any defects, such as scratches or dents, be honest and list these defects in your listing. Additionally, take photographs that accurately represent your item. This is important for safety as it helps to avoid any potential confrontations with buyers who may accuse you of dishonesty.

Bring a Friend

When meeting a potential buyer, take extra precautions by meeting in a well-lit public place and bring someone you trust with you.

Wait for Payment

Before Sending the Item Some scammers may try to trick you into sending them your item before payment is received. To avoid this, wait for a few days to confirm that the funds have been transferred before making any arrangements to send the item.

Trust Your Instincts

Lastly, trust your instincts. If something seems off, it’s best to trust your gut and cancel the transaction.
