How do I make my item appear in top list of the site Fnac.com?

By default, items are displayed in ascending order of price. The criterion for ranking offers is also based on quality criteria of your shop such as the star rating or the number of complaints.

What is Top Seller status and how do I attain it?

‘TOP SELLER’ is a distinction achieved by some experienced sellers who have demonstrated the excellence of their operation. By virtue of the superior quality of their service, they guarantee customers the best possible experience. These are the criteria for gaining access to ‘TOP SELLER’ status:

– Minimum 6 months’ track-record on Fnac Marketplace

– Number of orders ≥ 100

– Average score ≥ 4.7 / 5

– Acceptance rate of orders ≥ 95%

– Complaint / litigation rate ≤ 3%

– Instant refund rate ≤ 5%

– Late delivery rate ≤ 5%

– Response time to customer questions / complaints (over the last 6 months) ≤ 48 hours

 

Once you have become a ‘TOP SELLER’, you’ll find a gold star medal next to your shop’s name.
Caution: If your performance as measured against any one of the criteria listed above should slip, you will forfeit your ‘Top Seller’ status.

How to manage deliveries

Am I obliged to provide a tracking number for my order?

The tracking number is a piece of information that you are obliged to provide to the customer for any tracked or recommended order for delivery. 
Upon acceptance of the order, fill in the carrier field and the tracking number field. You can send the tracking code of the order to the customer at any time via our messaging tool.

Which delivery methods can I offer?

You can deliver your standard size products (> 30kg) by:

Normal: delivery of the consignment to the customer’s home without a tracking number
Tracked: delivery of the consignment to the customer’s home with the option to track its status and location. The tracking number and the carrier details must be provided.
Recommended: delivery of the consignment to the customer’s home with the option to track its status and location. The consignment is delivered against signature. The tracking number and the carrier details must be provided. We advise you to insure the consignment.
Express: delivery of the consignment to the customer’s home within 24 to 48 hours, with the option to track its status and location. The tracking number and the carrier details must be provided.

For bulky products, there are four service levels for delivery (cumulative):

– With or without an appointment

– With or without recovery

How are the delivery charges calculated?

Settlement of my payments

When and how am I paid?

Billing for orders received is carried out every five days. Following this billing, a bank transfer is made in accordance with our twice-weekly accounting cycles.

Why have my payments been blocked?

If your payment is blocked, it means that you have an unresolved customer complaint pending. You must first process the claim and find a solution with your customer to unlock your payment.

An rating of the order comprises scores ranging from 1 to 5, concerning the five following aspects:
