FOURTH: IMPLEMENTING AND CANCELING REQUESTS
1. When choosing an auto part from the store or Tashlyh shop, the buyer must confirm the correctness of the order information before listing it on AZ Parts platform, and must review the correctness of the order information before confirming sending it to the market.
2. After the buyer – who requests the auto part - has filled out the auto part’s request data, he will receive an electronic notification of the successful receipt of his order, after which the request will be sent to the market.
3. The buyer has the right to cancel the order before the initiation of its process, while AZ Parts platform has also the right to cancel the request on its part for any reasons it considers logical and without giving any reasons or notice to the owner of the request.
The customer requesting the auto part gets two price quotations for the required part as follows:
1. An indicative price for the auto part: that appears before the order is sent to the market: it is an automatic service that is available before the request of the part is sent to the market and after the customer - the owner of the request - has filled out the main fields with the required auto part information. This feature provides the customer with three main indicators (the lowest, highest, as well as the average price) for that part of that brand and that model, as shown in the example attached in the image below. The data of the auto part and its prices history are imported from AZ Parts market database of previous parts which are identical to the current one and which were previously sold or priced. The prices of the parts in the market index are updated instantly upon the occurrence of any variation in the market prices. The indicative price is an indicator that helps the customer know the prices history of the parts that correspond to his request in the market before making the purchase decision.
2. The actual price of the part: that appears upon sending the request to the market: it is a service that is carried out after the customer sends his request to the market and after the stores or Tashlyh shops receive it. A response with the actual price of the part is placed and becomes executable upon the approval of the requesting customer.
3. *** A fundamental disclosure from AZ Parts platform regarding auto parts prices:
1) All prices offered by the market index or the prices listed in the auto parts exchange database are prices based on the personal assessment of the owners of those parts. AZ Parts platform has no role in verifying the fairness of such prices, approval, or endorsement of their owners.
2) The discrepancy in the prices of auto parts among some stores or Tashlyh shops may be attributed to several reasons, including, but not limited to, the life of the vehicle from which the part is extracted, as it is known that some parts in one car may fit in several other models despite the years’ difference between them, and therefore the price differential may be due to such reasons.
3) The price fluctuation may be due to lack of a controlling reference that can be referred to during pricing. So, AZ Parts platform counts on the market price index to contribute in providing the best possible standards to achieve fairness and market transparency.
4) AZ Parts platform does not interfere in setting or specifying market prices, nor does it set any minimum or maximum ceiling. Its role is limited to collecting and analyzing data and offers and archiving them historically.
5) Any price circulated on AZ Parts platform is not considered a guarantee by the platform that it is the fair price for that auto part, and the decision to accept the price or not remains the prerogative of the requesting customer.
SIXTH: COMPETITION BETWEEN STORES OR TASHLYH SHOPS
1. Requests for auto parts are directed to the market after being analyzed by several levels of algorithms according to which the request identifies the stores and Tashlyh shops that fits it without human intervention.
2. The store or Tashlyh shop is notified of the receipt of a new order so it can deal with and respond to it.
3. The store or Tashlyh shop can see the prices that its competitors have offered for that part. The store or Tashlyh shop can adjust the price only once.
