XVII. SELLER POLICY
- Marketing and Advertising
My Precious World offers sellers multiple advertising channels to promote their listings or shops. This Marketing and advertising policy explains your rights and responsibilities when using our advertising services.
- – Paid Advertising
Sellers are able to buy paid advertising using our advert dashboard. This could either be through Display Adverts, Promoted listings i.e. advertising on My Precious World itself and/or through Google ads or other third parties.
Promoted Listings display a seller’s items or shop prominently on My Precious World’s website. There are some major determinants of the location in which your item may appear. These are: relevancy to an item search by a user, quality of listing (including compliance with My Precious World’s policies), the amount bid to display the listing, and for some listings, likelihood of sale. You may choose to promote some or all of your listings or shops as Promoted Listings.
Google Shopping ads display a seller’s listings directly in Google search results and through the Google Shopping service based on search relevancy, listing quality (including compliance with My Precious World’s and/or Google’s policies), and the amount bid to display the listing. You may choose to promote some or all of your listings or shops through Google Shopping ads.

Those beta services are subject to separate terms for a particular program provided to you as part of your participation in that program, as well as this policy and the overall My Precious World Terms.
- About Google Shopping
My Precious World’s paid advertising services available from your My Precious World account may include Google Shopping ads. Google’s advertising system uses an auction to determine cost and placement of ads, so the cost may vary based on time of day, demand, and availability.
For Google Shopping ads purchased as part of paid advertising, you must enter an average daily budget, which must be set at or above a predetermined minimum set by Google or My Precious World, and set in GBP or USD. This average budget may be for one or more forms of paid advertising, depending on advertising services provided. Please note that Google manages campaigns to optimize results on a monthly rather than a daily basis. That means for paid advertising that includes Google Shopping ads, your average daily budget may be exceeded by up to 100% on any given day. However, if you maintain the same average daily budget for a month, you won’t be charged more than your average daily budget multiplied by the average number of days in a month (30.4). Click here to read more about Google Shopping ad pricing.
By purchasing paid advertising that includes Google Shopping ads, you will be automatically opted out of My Precious World’s separate and free Google Shopping Engine Ads if available to you.
Your listings or shops may also be included, at My Precious World’s sole discretion, in other marketing and third party advertising programs. For example, My Precious World may include your listings or shops in programs such as My Precious World’s Shopping Engine Ads, Facebook Shopping, Instagram Shopping on multiple platforms.
- Shopping Engine Ads
Shopping Engine Ads is only available to Premium account subscribers, My Precious World may promote your listings or shops on third-party shopping engines in our sole discretion. If you are eligible for, and are included in, the Shopping Engine Ads program, you may opt out at any time by sending an email to email@example.com. If you purchase Google Shopping ads, you’ll be automatically opted out of My Precious World’s free Google Shopping Engine ads. However, if you pause or end your paid campaign, you’ll be automatically re-enrolled into Google Shopping Engine Ads, contingent on program availability for your account.
My Precious World’s network of participating shopping engines may change at any time. My Precious World currently syndicates listings to a variety of channels, such as:
- – Google Shopping
- – Bing
Participation in the Shopping Engine Ads is currently available for Premium Product, Enhanced Vendor and Premium Vendor subscribers.

- Internationally Regulated Items
When buying and selling internationally, you should comply with your local laws and be aware that other countries may have their own restrictions. You might be prohibited from exporting or importing certain items under international laws and regulations. Some transactions may require licenses, permits, or other documentation. If you have questions about how to comply with the law, we recommend that you speak to a qualified professional.
When you use My Precious World’s services, you are also responsible for complying with economic sanctions and trade restrictions, including those implemented by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”) of the US Department of the Treasury. All My Precious World members must comply with our Sanctions Policy, regardless of their location.
My Precious World reserves the right to request that sellers provide additional information, disclose an item’s country of origin in a listing, or take other steps to meet compliance obligations.
You should be aware that third-party payment processors may independently monitor transactions for sanctions compliance and may block some transactions as part of their own compliance programmes. My Precious World has no authority or control over the independent decision-making of these providers.
- Pornography and Mature Content
Pornography of any sort is prohibited on My Precious World, whereas mature content is restricted. Although pornography can be difficult to define, an item generally qualifies as pornography when it contains extreme or explicit version of sexual content.
We define mature content as depictions of human genitalia, sexual activity or content, profane language, sexual wellness items, violent images, and explicit types or representations of taxidermy.
Not all nudity is considered mature, and examples are listed below. If you find yourself questioning whether your item is mature, then it is likely a good idea to assume that it is mature content, and you should label it as such.
When deciding whether mature content crosses over the threshold into pornography, we take into consideration the explicitness of depictions of sexual activity or content.
Examples of What is Allowed Without Restriction:
- Non-pornographic nude photography and depictions of breasts
- Non-pornographic depictions of buttocks
- Abstracted or cartoonish depictions, within reason
- Violent Items: Items that Promote, Support, or Glorify Violence
We do not allow items or listings that promote, support or glorify acts of violence or harm towards self or others, including credible threats of harm.
The following items are not allowed on My Precious World:
- Items that glorify human suffering or tragedies, including items that commemorate or honor serial killers
- Items that attempt to exploit natural disasters or human tragedies
- Items that encourage, glorify, or celebrate acts of violence against individuals or groups
- Items that encourage self-mutilation, starvation or other self-harm
