Global Marketplace

Some of TapUAE features may display your ad on other sites, services, applications and tools that are part of the UAE classified community, such as Facebook, Google, LinkedIn or our classifieds sites in other emirates. By using TapUAE, you agree that your ads can be displayed on these other sites, services, applications and tools. The terms for our other sites, services, applications and tools are similar to these terms, but you may be subject to additional laws or other restrictions within UAE where your ad is posted. When you choose to post your ad on another site, service, application or tool, you may be responsible for ensuring that it does not violate such other site, service, application and tool policies. We may remove your ad if it is reported on any our sites, services, applications or tools, or if we believe it causes problems or violates any law or policy.

Fees and Services

Using TapUAE is generally free for Classifieds and Free Stuff, but we charge a fee for certain categories – Motors, Property for Rent, Property for Sale and Jobs. If the service you use incurs a fee, you'll be able to review and accept terms that will be clearly disclosed at the time you post your ad. Our fees are quoted in UAE AED. We'll notify you of changes to our fee policy by posting such changes on our Tapper’s Dashboard. We may choose to temporarily change our fees for promotional events or new services; these changes are effective when we announce the promotional event or new service.

You acknowledge that your ads may be deleted from the TapUAE sites, services, applications or tools in case we believe these Terms of Use, including our Posting Rules, are breached, either directly or indirectly. In case you would have paid a fee for the display of such ad, you may be entitled to a refund of such fee. However, we reserve the right not to refund the TapUAE users for any fees paid through use of our sites, services, applications and tools in the following cases:

  • If you breach, in our opinion, these Terms of Use, which include, without limitation, the Posting Rules
  • If your ads went live with exposure on the TapUAE sites, services, applications or tools, even for a limited time, and that they benefited from the service associated with the paid fee
  • If your ads are placed into "edit" mode and will go live to site once updated by you
  • If you have removed your ads yourself
  • If you post duplicate ads as defined in our rules regarding duplicate ads
  • If we believe that your ads are in a significantly wrong category
  • Please note that the above list is not exhaustive.


Do not post content that infringes the rights of third parties. This includes, but is not limited to, content that infringes on intellectual property rights such as copyright, design and trademark (e.g. offering counterfeit items for sale). A large number of products of all sorts are offered on TapUAEby private individuals in Dubai. Entitled parties, in particular owners of copyright, trademark rights or other rights can report any advertisement which may infringe on their rights, and submit a request for such advertisement to be removed. If a legal representative of the entitled party reports this to us in the correct manner, products infringing on the intellectual property rights will be removed byTapUAE.

Resolution of disputes

If a dispute arises between you and TapUAE, we strongly encourage you to first seek a resolution by contacting us directly at our customer service. We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation.


Nothing in these terms shall limit our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation or the negligence of our agents or employees. You agree not to hold us responsible for things other users post or do.

We do review Tappers' postings but are not involved in the actual transactions between buyers and sellers. As most of the content on TapUAE comes from Tappers, we do not guarantee the accuracy of postings or user communications or the quality, safety, or legality of what's offered.

In no event do we accept liability of any description for the posting of any unlawful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene or indecent information, or material of any kind which violates or infringes upon the rights of any other person, including without limitation any transmissions constituting or encouraging conduct that would constitute a criminal offence, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any applicable law.

You acknowledge that we cannot guarantee continuous, error-free or secure access to our services or that defects in the service will be corrected. While we will use reasonable efforts to maintain an uninterrupted service, we cannot guarantee this and we do not give any promises or warranties (whether express or implied) about the operation and availability of our sites, services, applications or tools.

TapUAE does not allow the disclaimer of warranties or exclusion of damages, so such disclaimers and exclusions may not apply to you. Despite the previous paragraph, if we are found to be liable, our liability to you or any third party (whether in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability in tort, by statute or otherwise) is limited to the total fees you paid for your advertisement.
