Dangerous kind is a product characteristic required for logistics purposes. It is determined by the material of the product or its components, its function or appearance.
Merchants should select the dangerous kind for each product from the list provided by the platform. Products without this information can't be shipped, and therefore, sold on Joom.
Dangerous kind cannot be left empty. If the product is not considered a dangerous article, you can identify it as not dangerous. If the dangerous kind is incorrect, your parcel could be returned by the logistics provider.
