If a buyer has a problem with an order from your shop, they may report a problem to you. Buyers may report problems in two ways: The buyer reports a problem to you through Messages. The buyer opens a case. Buyers who have opened a case may escalate the case to if the problem is unresolved within three days of opening the case. It’s best to resolve the problem with the buyer before they escalate a case, but if you need’s assistance, we’re here to help. How to prepare your shop Here are some ways to prepare your shop for a dispute: • Fill out your shop policies. Your shop policies help set expectations with the buyer and may protect you if a buyer has a problem with an order from your shop. • Regularly respond to Messages from your buyers. Prompt responses can prevent problems from escalating. • Ship your orders within your processing times • Make sure that your items and orders match how you describe them in your listings • Be sure that the policies you state are in line with’s policies.

For example: Your shop policies state that you offer refunds and the buyer requests a refund. • If the buyer requests something that isn’t in line with your shop policies, work with them to agree on a solution. A buyer emailed you about a problem If the buyer reaches out to you outside of, direct them to use Messages. This keeps everything in one place, and will help Support assist if the case is escalated. What to do when a buyer opens a case If you and the buyer can’t resolve the problem through Messages, the buyer may open a case. A case is a formal report of a problem. As a seller, you must work with the buyer to resolve the case. If you and the buyer aren’t able to resolve the case together within three days, the buyer can escalate the case to Support. What can a buyer open a case for? Buyers can report a problem to you for any issues with an order. However, they can only open a case for these reasons: • A non-delivery case: the order didn’t arrive • A not-as-described case: the item(s) the buyer received weren’t what was described in their listing(s). Proof of shipping You may be required to show proof of shipping. Click Add tracking in the applicable case to add proof of shipping. Proof of shipping should show that the item was shipped to the address given by the buyer when they purchased the item on Proof of shipping could be: • A scanned copy of the delivery confirmation or departure information • A shipping service receipt • A customs form • A tracking number and/or tracking information that shows the package was delivered to the buyer Time frame for opening a case Eligibility to open a case is based on an order's estimated delivery date (if applicable) or processing time and/or “ship by” date. Once eligible, buyers have 100 days to open a case. When a case is closed A case will close automatically if: • You issue the buyer a full refund through Payments • The buyer closes the case if they are satisfied with the resolution • You add tracking information to the case that confirms the package was delivered to a location matching the transaction receipt (for cases of non-delivery only) If a case isn’t resolved, buyers can escalate the case to Support for review. reserves the right to escalate a case early for circumstances such as seller inactivity, harassment, refusal of service, case manipulation, and undermining the integrity of the case system.

When Support can mediate If a case hasn’t been resolved in three days and the buyer escalates the case, Support can intervene and assist with a resolution. When necessary to resolve a case, reserves the right to issue a refund to the buyer and recoup funds from your account if payment was made via Payments. may reopen a previously closed case to further investigate tracking issues or other aspects of the dispute.

Custom Duties and Import VAT When a package ships internationally, it may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed by the destination country. These charges are typically due once the package arrives in the destination country. Sellers are responsible with ensuring to comply with laws and regulations of the country of destination. Generally, the buyer is responsible for paying customs duties on receipt of the package. Certain countries may require certain documentation before the items are sent. If the necessary information is not provided, this may result in delays in the order. Goods arriving into EU from non-EU country When shipping goods from a non-EU country into an EU country, customs fees and import VAT may apply on these goods. The amount of customs duty and import VAT to be paid will be assessed at the point of entry of the destination country. This may result in the buyer having to pay additional charges which are not included in the total price displayed at checkout. Generally, VAT isn’t due when the total value of all goods in a consignment (value not inclusive of custom duties or transport costs) is less than the destination country threshold. The threshold may vary from €10 euro to €22 euro, depending on the EU country. For import VAT, the rate that is assessed is the rate set by the country that the package is shipped to. Customs duty does not typically apply on goods where the value doesn’t exceed €150 euro. Where can I find customs forms? You can obtain customs declaration forms from your mail provider. Most of the time, these are available online. Disclaimer: This article does not constitute legal or tax advice and is for information purposes only.
