Managing Your Communication Center

31 Oct 2019 Communication Center

The communication center is a feature that enables customers to communicate with merchants on DubaiStore by sending them messages about any inquiries they may have about the merchants’ products.

If your communication center is enabled, customers will be able to see a “Contact Merchant” link on your products page and on your Merchant microsite within the DubaiStore platform.

DubaiStore expects merchants to have their Communication Center enabled all the time. You have the option to temporarily disable your Communication Center for a short period due to certain circumstance.

Below is useful information about managing your Communication Center.

Code of Conduct
Merchants are expected to maintain a professional attitude in their responses.

Reply Timeframe
Merchants are expected to reply to their messages within the same day, and a maximum of 24 hours, from when they receive the message.

  1. Your products details pages
