Claims

Access your account and select the "Support Tickets" option in the upper right-hand corner of the interface. Once there you can open a new support ticket. Follow the prompts on the screen and select the appropriate option. You can also report a lost/damaged package from the 'Sent Packages' tab.

If you received a package in your account that does not belong to you, please create a support ticket. Our warehouse staff will then remove the package from your account.

If you received an incorrect package, create a support ticket and upload photos of the package labels and contents. We will then provide you with further instructions.


The seller's invoice or proof of purchase is required for any and all claims. This must show the purchase price, purchase date, and the delivery address (our warehouse address), and tracking number.
At Shipito, we do our due diligence to inform customers if we notice a package arrived with any damage. But ultimately, it is your responsibility to ensure all items arrive to us in proper working condition.

Please bear in mind that all packages arrive to us on pallets from the carriers, so we are unable to inspect each package at the time of delivery. We ask that you view the incoming photos provide and if you wish to see the contents, please request photos to be taken.

We cannot honor any claims for packages that arrive to our warehouse damaged, even if the seller denies your claim.

Seguro

The processing time for a claim varies depending on the carrier.
Options for insurance are displayed during the mail out request process based your selected carrier and destination country. We offer two types of insurance and it varies by carrier:
1. Login to your account
2. Find your package that's in question and select the options on the right of it (as shown below).

A form will pop-up (as shown below). On the form you'll be able to select from 3 different package related issues you may have occurred. Please be sure to follow the instructions given to you on the form after making your selection.


4. Processing The Claim
When the claim is entered in the system, it will appear in your account. We will notify you once we have further information. You can see updates about any open issues and claims in your Shipito account.

This process can take from several weeks to months depending on the carrier and when they get back to us.

NOTE: claims are only available through shipping methods with international tracking numbers (FedEx, USPS Express Mail, USPS Priority Mail).
You can only apply for insurance, if you selected and paid for insurance coverage on your package at the time of mail out. Please note, that insurance claims and processing times vary by carrier.

    Refunds

    Sometimes you will need to return a package back to the original retailer. We always recommend that you let Shipito take photos of the contents of each package to avoid problems.
    1. Contact the store and ask how to return the package

    Each store has different policies. Some stores will pay for the return shipping charge. Others will require you to pay for the shipping.

    2. Follow the procedure given by the store
    Place Special request: Some retailers require you to print a Return Authorization and include it in the package. In this case, place a SPECIAL REQUEST detailing what you need to be done. Please do not email us, as this often creates confusion. The special request function is designed to streamline returns and other special instances. If the retailer provides a Return shipping label, please attach it too.

    Wait till the Special request is processed: If you know that the store pays for return shipping, make sure the postage shows zero (and shipping address does not need to be filled out). If you are responsible for the shipping cost, change the shipping address for the package so it can be returned to the correct address and select the appropriate shipping method.

    Select the package for mail out: Once the package shows the correct shipping address and shipping costs, select it for mail out. Please wait to select this until the previous steps are completed.

    If the above sounds too complicated and you feel the need to email us, we can correctly set up your package for a small, $5 courtesy fee.

    If you know that the retailer doesn’t require any return authorization, you can simply change the shipping address on your package and select the preferred shipping method. That way, you will not be charged a Special Request fee.


    If the retailer doesn’t require any return authorization, you can simply change the shipping address on your package and select the preferred shipping method. That way, you will not be charged a Special Request fee.
    To place a refund request, go to "Account Settings," then "Account Deposit" where you'll find the "Request a Refund" button. Follow the instructions on the prompt window to submit your request.
    Refunds are processed against the original form of payment when possible. If you deposited funds into your account using either Bitcoin, wire transfer or a card that has now expired, we will process your refund via PayPal if you provide us with a PayPal email.
    Refunds typically take our staff 2-3 days to process. However, the time it takes until the funds are returned to your account depends on the payment method used.
