Some product categories may require your business to be Registered.

Both buyers and sellers must comply with our Community Guidelines. If you don't comply with our guidelines & policies, you could face a number of penalties, such as the deletion of listings and other content, the rejection of product tags, including the suspension or termination of your access to any or all AlephExpress products and services. 

We try to make sure that decisions are fair, but we always reserve the right to delete content or suspend accounts without warning for any reason, but especially to safeguard our services, infrastructure, customers, and community.  While these Community Guidelines don't create a contractual obligation for us to act in any particular manner, we will make every effort to uphold them in a way that is consistent with our principles and values

❗️ ️ What to do if it's rejected? Reconsider the decision.
