1. What to do when there is an after-sales problem with an order that is ineligible for the “return/exchange guarantee”?
When there is a quality issue with the product, Greetbuy will verify with the seller based on the actual situation. We will figure out the final solution and notify the user. If the product has no quality issue, the return/exchange service will be unavailable based on the rules from the third-party platform. Greetbuy will try to communicate with the seller and protect the user’s rights.
2. Who will be responsible for the shipping fee when using the “ return/exchange guarantee”?
The product must be new and meet the resell requirement before requesting the return/exchange service. If the product has no quality issue, the user will be responsible for the shipping fees. If there is a quality issue with the problem, the seller will be responsible for the shipping fees after the user submits the request.
3. Will there be any charges if I request the return service when the order status is “not shipped”?
Don’t worry, in this case, there will be no charge. You will only be charged when the return/exchange request meets the three conditions: First, the product has no quality issues. Second, the product is already stocked in the warehouse. Third, you have used up the free returns/exchanges allowed for this month. So, when a product is not shipped yet, we will not charge you any fee.
4. If the seller offers free shipping and the shipping insurance, do I still need to pay for the shipping (seller shipped the product to you when you purchased the product) when returning a product?
For the shipping insurance, the compensation from the insurance company is determined by the rate of product return and our sourcing account has a high rate of product return. It is possible that the insurance company will decline the claim so the shipping insurance may not work. Also, for products with free shipping, the seller paid for the shipping when shipping the product to the warehouse, and you will have to pay the seller back if you request the return/exchange service. For that reason, you will pay for the two-way shipping fees when you request the return/exchange service.
