Twoosk provides its Services to you through Twoosk Marketplace. When you use Twoosk Marketplace to purchase products listed on it, you may be purchasing them from Twoosk through our Over Stock Business Services (“OS Business Services”), or from a Marketplace Seller (Business Seller(s)) identified on the product information page. Depending on who is selling the product to you, it is important that you understand that the contract for the purchase of the products is either between you and Twoosk or, between you and the relevant Marketplace Seller. In relation to the sale of products by Twoosk to you through OS Business Services, we are acting as an undisclosed agent or commissionaire on behalf of our OS Business Partners (the “Partners”) and with respect to overstocks management and business opportunities matching. We are authorized by the relevant Partner to conclude the contract in our own name but on their behalf.
Further information of the Services we provide and the sale of products to you, can be read below in Our Services section under TCU and Sellers section under TCS.
Twoosk Marketplace and the Services we offer through it, allow you to search and purchase different products from different Sellers based in the European Union. As part of the Services, Twoosk also provides some ancillary services such as arranging the delivery of the products, providing you with customer service assistance and payment processing without charge.
As a B2B Marketplace our focus is to provide our business services exclusively to sellers and buyers in the B2B sector, acting as a facilitator between businesses. We reserve the right not to accept order proposals from persons other than buyers in the B2B sector, as well as any other order proposal that do not comply with these TCU and the TCS. By buyers in the B2B sector, we mean the person or the business the person is employed by or represents, who is using our Services for purposes related to his or her trade, business, or profession (“Business Buyer(s)”).
As stated above, the products listed in Twoosk Marketplace belong to the Business Seller indicated on the product information page, meaning the contract for the purchase of the products is between you and the relevant Business Seller, who is legally responsible for them and for selling the products to you, and not us. The exception to this is when you buy products sold by OS Business Services, a service provided by Twoosk on behalf of our Partners and in relation to overstocks management. In this case, the contract for the purchase of the products is between you and Twoosk, but on behalf of the relevant Partner (see Sellers section of TCS).
The delivery logistics service is provided by Twoosk. As such, when you place an order through Twoosk Marketplace, the contract for the delivery services is between you and us. The charges for these services depend on the type of delivery, weight, and dimensions of the order, as well as on dispatch and destination country. Shipping information, including cost, will be shown at checkout and prior to your purchase of the products. Your contract with us is fulfilled once the products have been delivered to you by the transportation company at the address specified by you while placing the order.

The Marketplace may provide Buyers with two shipping methods: Standard and Ground Transportation, and each one has its own estimated delivery times. The Ground Transportation shipping method applies to palletized loads.
Shipping costs depend on the shipping method selected, weight and dimensions of the package, as well as on dispatch and destination country. Shipping information, including cost, will be clearly shown at checkout and prior to your purchase of the products. There may be cases where our system could not automatically find a proper shipping method. In this case a message will be shown, and our customer care team will get in contact with you as soon as possible to arrange a quotation for shipping.
The Buyer will be able to track and consult the estimated delivery date of the products through the tracking number that will be provided in his Shipping Confirmation Email.
Twoosk provides the delivery services (not the relevant Seller), and we will do our best to ensure that the estimated delivery date of your order is fulfilled. However, keep in mind that there may be circumstances outside of our reasonable control where delivery is delayed. In case an issue with the delivery of your order has been identified, Twoosk will chase the transportation company to find out what has happened to your order and will inform you accordingly. You can find more information related to our liability to you regarding services under section 1 of the TCU.
The product(s) will be delivered to you directly by the relevant Seller. If you ordered products from different Marketplace Sellers you may receive multiple deliveries and at different times. For each dispatched package you will receive a separate Shipping Confirmation Email. Each dispatch corresponds to a separate contract of sale.
If you are not at your address at the estimated delivery time, our delivery service provider will make a second attempt or will leave you a note, and you will need to contact him to schedule another delivery.
If you choose to use any optional services offered by the transportation company, please understand that you are doing it separately with the transportation company, and you agree that Twoosk has no liability for any loss or damage that may result from delivering your order in that way.
Please find more information about delivery on our Help Center page.
If you are ordering products sold and dispatched from outside your country, please be aware you may be subject to customs duties, taxes and fees (“Import Fees”), which will not be estimated during the Checkout process and therefore will not be applied to your order.
These Import Fees are due once the package reaches the specified destination. The Buyer or the person delegated and authorized by the Buyer to receive the goods, is responsible for paying any additional charges for customs clearance based on the applicable laws of the country into which the products are being delivered. Neither Twoosk nor the Seller have any control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be.
Twoosk does not offer services related to customs clearance, customs duties and fees. However, the Buyer may contact Twoosk to ask for help regarding customs clearance. We will, as a gesture of goodwill, provide assistance as much as we can, but the Buyer assumes full responsibility for the costs associated with it, and which are due to the appropriate customs and tax authorities of the destination country.
You will also have to consider that in a B2B sales transaction, when you buy on Twoosk Marketplace you are understood as the importer of record, so it is your duty to comply with all customs regulations of the country where you are receiving the goods and, in addition, you may be requested to provide any information and/or documentation necessary for the release of your goods.
We recommend you contact your local customs office for further information about the customs policy applicable to your case at the time of entry, and to get a “landed cost estimate” before placing your order.
Please note that, international dispatchments are subject to opening and inspection by the customs authorities.
As a Marketplace supporting costumers in the B2B sector, Twoosk and the Marketplace Sellers are not under the obligation to comply with the laws and regulations applying to consumers. Our liability to you is limited or excluded by the European Union’s E-Commerce Directive and by our terms of service, including our Warranty guidelines set out in section 7 below.
A business customer is entitled to:
A business customer is not entitled to:
In accordance with the provisions set out above, if you need to return an item that was bought from a Seller on Twoosk Marketplace, you will need to return it directly to the Seller. To do that you need to initiate a return request by contacting our customer care team, which will intercede with the Seller in your behalf. If the Seller accepts your return, you will obtain the return details to send your product back within 2 business days. Please package your item with care to avoid damage during transportation.
Once the item is received by the relevant Marketplace Seller, it will be inspected, and the Seller may offer to repair or replace it. If none of these options are viable, a full refund of the faulty product will be processed by us within 14 days. A solution between the parties will be agreed on a case by case basis.
Please note that if you return an item, you will be responsible for reclaiming taxes and import duties directly from your local customs office given they were not originally included in the purchase price.
When you purchase an item from a Seller on Twoosk Marketplace, you are making the payment to Twoosk, who passes the payment on to your seller, less applicable commission.
Where Twoosk Marketplace Return Policy requirements are fulfilled and you are entitled to request a refund, you must do it using Twoosk Marketplace customer service and, we will liaise with the Business Seller on your behalf.
Twoosk will normally process refunds within seven (7) days after buyer´s request. Funds will be deposited using the same method of payment used to pay for your order. Twoosk will send you an email confirming that your refund has been issued. Refund times depend on your Credit or Debit Card Company.
In accordance with Twoosk Marketplace Return Policy refunds are issued as follows:
On Twoosk B2B Marketplace the sale contract is entered between businesses. Under this commercial relationship, the warranty terms applied to the products listed on Twoosk Marketplace are provided by the Marketplace Seller.
Although, the warranty period may vary depending on which Seller Shop you are buying the products from, if the product you bought on Twoosk Marketplace turns out to be faulty after delivery or not as advertised (does not match the seller’s description), the Marketplace Seller has to offer you free repair or, at his option, replacement within a period of at least six (6) months following delivery.
Where repair or replacement are not possible, the seller may offer to refund the product concerned. Replacement units or parts will be warranted for the remaining portion of the original warranty period.
In addition, any Marketplace Sellers or manufacturers of the products sold may offer a commercial warranty or guarantee, for a specific period of time, which can never be less than the minimum warranty set out above.
Please note that customers need to cover the shipping fee to return products to the Marketplace Seller. However, if after examining the product the Seller agrees that it was defective when you bought it, the shipping fee you paid for returning the product will be refundable to you. If the Seller accepts your return, you must return the package as per our instructions to the Seller´s warehouse address.
In any case, the warranty will not cover product failure due to damages caused by you, such as any defect or malfunction caused as a result of an accident, misuse, failure to follow instructions, abuse, or use with improper equipment (i.e. improper wiring or incorrect voltage) or any product which has been altered or tampered with an attempt to repair it yourself.
If not specified on the product information page, sections Return Policy and Refunds and Warranty set out above will apply to your order by default.
For products sold as refurbished, the warranty described above does not apply. Should a defect occur, please note that such products warranty is under specific terms (Refurbished Warranty), which are provided by the Seller and specified in the product information page.
When you make a claim for a faulty item, you will need to provide your order reference, proof of purchase, showing where and when you bought the goods and provide details about the problem.
