Buyers have the options of either picking the item up from your location themselves or using our delivery option. We will arrange the pick -up and delivery of the item with our delivery logistics partner and will save you the trouble of having to go through this yourself. You can decide whether you would prefer the item to be delivered or picked up when you are listing the item for sale.
Just remember to provide an exact address where the item is so that nobody gets lost on the way to pick up the item!
When you come to the E-Shakoosh site, you are able to browse through hundreds of items that are listed for sale. There is something for everyone!
There are items for everyone in our wide range of categories such as:
When you have chosen the item that you want to purchase, you can simply add it to your cart. When you checkout, you will be asked to register a BUYER account. You only need to register one time and then you can come back and purchase from the site anytime you need to.
For now, E-Shakoosh is only accepting Cash on Delivery, so you will only pay when you receive the item. Make sure that you enter the correct contact information and address so that we know where to deliver your purchase!
E-Shakoosh’s Auction option was created to give buyers a chance to buy items at the best price possible and to get their hands on rare items that are not available in conventional online stores.
If you like an item that is being Auctioned, all you need to do is place a bid. You will receive a message from E-Shakoosh when someone else places a higher bid, so you can choose to bid again or let the other seller get that item. Once the time on the auction runs out, the highest bidder wins the item and a message will be sent to all the bidders to inform them that the item is sold.
E-Shakoosh works with a number of trustworthy logistics partners who handle delivery and Cash on Delivery. Deliveries usually take 2-3 business days, but we can also arrange an EXPRESS delivery if you need the item the same day or the next day.
