Still have questions?

Below are frequently asked questions, contact us if you have any other questions or queries.
I received an empty or conterfeit package, what do I do?
We take these matters very seriously and Limbo will launch an investigation into every report filed. You can find more about this on our disputes page .
Does the Seller pay any fees?
No, the Seller in a transaction never pays any fees. It is free to download and make an account on Limbo. For our low cost Buyers fees, see our fees section.
How are Limbo fees calculated?
Limbo Fees are always paid by the Buyer, there are no fees for the selling party. We charge 0.5% of the transaction, with a minimum of $2, a maximum of $10 and ZERO fees for amounts under $25.
Can i use Limbo when buying a second hand vehicle?
Not yet, but we are working on it. Currently we rely on our Courier integration to process our transactions. However it is something we are looking to add in the future.
What is the process if a transaction is cancelled?
If the sale falls through, and this is either approved by the Seller or the Seller doesn’t book a courier within the required 7 day time period (a default release condition). The transaction funds are released to the Buyer minus any Limbo fees.
I'm the Seller and I can see the money in the Limbo account, why haven’t I received it yet?
Limbo will hold the funds until the Buyer has received the item and has up to 3 days to inspect it once it arrives. This is triggered by the tracking indicating the package has arrived. If the funds are not released within the 3 day period by the Buyer, Limbo automatically releases the funds to you.
Can the Buyer retrieve the funds once they are held in Limbo?
Once the funds are received into Limbos trust account, the buyer can not terminate the transaction. It is up to the Seller to cancel the transaction to release the funds back to the Buyer, or the 7 day transaction timer to run out if the courier isn’t booked (inactive seller).
