Here are some ways we protect consumers from “bad apple” merchants:
Merchants’ wallet addresses are publicized, so you can review their reward distribution.
Merchants who fail to reward tokens within 14 days are flagged immediately in their merchant profile.
Three infractions of either failure to give rewards within 30-day time period or complaints from a customer (or both), are up for review for potential suspension. Complaining customers must provide evidence of wrongdoing by the merchant. Without submitted evidence, the review is automatically decided in favor of the merchant and complaints will be marked as private on their profile. The potential suspension is decided by registered users with an active balance of AureusBuxx. The review will allow merchants to make their case and share how they plan to remedy the problem, and you as the consumer decide whether the merchant will be allowed stay in our directory and shopping engine. Consumers can choose either no suspension, 30-day suspension, or permanent suspension for the offending merchants.
