3. Frequent cases in return and refund
Below are how we generally handle frequent issues with fulfilling and shipping order. How we handle these case may still varies depend on how serious the case is, and after we have collected all the .
This is NOT how we always act for every request. Actual solution may differs for each case.
- Shipping wrong item: We will replace the item.
- Damaged item: When our items are processed, it’s always intact and got no damage. However, there are many cases that the Custom Control will tear the shipment to check for its content, or there may be damages during transportation. It’s hard to check whose responsibility it is. In most cases, we will replace the item if the damage can be clearly seen. Customer must also send the proof of damage and the photo of the packaging label so we can inspect further.
- Small print area or broken print area (low quality printing): if the issue is because of the factory (means that the artwork file follows our guidelines but the print area is still small), we will replace the item.
- Actual product is smaller than announced size: If the actual product is more than 2 inches shorter/longer/wider/smaller than the announced size chart, we will replace the item.
- Missing Item: If the order includes 2 or more items but the package the buyer received contains less than the actual order quantity, in most cases, Merchize will immediately send the missing item to the buyer. If buyer requests a refund for the order, we will send a partial refund for the order. The amount of the refund is calculated by the fulfillment cost for the missing item, and the shipping cost (if applicable).
- If the shipment is late or is kept at customs waiting for customs clearance for too long (more than 5 business days for US orders and more than 8 business days for International orders) more than the guaranteed shipping time, Merchize will replace the item for you.
- If the provided artwork doesn’t follow our guideline properly and there is a problem with the end result because of that (small print image, wrong print image, etc), It’s the responsibility of the seller to replace the item at their own cost.
- If the provided order lacks some information (street, address, customer name, phone number, zip code) and there is a problem with the end result because of that (late shipment, item kept at eCommerce center, item kept at post office, item return, etc), It’s the responsibility of the seller to replace the item at their own cost.
- If the shirt/item doesn’t fit because the customer ordered the wrong size (they didn’t check the size chart, they thought the size would fit because they usually use that same size from many other merchandisers, or for any similar reasons), it’s the responsibility of the seller to replace the item at their own cost.
