Every iVANZi store offers its own method of shipping and is responsible for shipping items in a timely manner. Each seller, meanwhile has access to three distinct shipping options: Federal Express, UPS, and USPS. These options can be found under the “Manage Orders” tab in your seller profile.
In some cases, a buyer may rate that an item that has been viewed and purchased from your shop is materially different than what they received from you. This could mean that the item was a different color, model, version, or size (for example, the buyer was expecting 3 items but instead only received 2).
You can avoid “Not-as-Described” cases by:
Yes. We formulated our return policy based on customer surveys and research of best practices. Having a unified return policy provides buyers with peace and ease of mind. Additionally, it must be noted that sellers have seven (7) calendar days to return an item upon receipt.
Exchanges are handled between you and the buyer. This agreement must be agreed upon before the item(s) is (are) shipped. If exchanges are allowed, you must fulfill your obligation to accept a returned item and exchange it according to your iVANZi seller policy.
Joint Sale is a unique payment option exclusive to iVANZi. Similar to a consignment program, the sellers will display products on the shelves of retailers, yet only be charged if the products are sold. A seller determines a Product Cycle of 30 or 60 Days. After completion of the Product Cycle, the buyer pays for sold products and returns any unsold merchandise back to seller. To learn more click joint sale to be sent to our page.
If you cannot fulfill an order, you must notify the buyer via iVANZiChat and cancel the transaction immediately. Sellers have up to 3 days from receiving the order to contact the buyer and inform them that an order cannot be fulfilled.
We categorize disputes into 2 groups: disputes managed between parties and those where iVANZi intermediates. Most disputes can be handled between buyer and seller through iVANZiChat, feedback and email communication. To avoid a dispute, it’s best to communicate with the buyer/seller of the transaction well in advance. Common issues that may quickly be resolved include exchanges and refunds, particularly if both parties agree to terms before entering into a transaction. However, in the event that both parties have a valid dispute which cannot be resolved through direct communication, iVANZi conducts a case review after receiving written notice by the aggrieved party. In such a case, iVANZi will review the details of the dispute and render a decision within 30 days of receiving a written dispute letter. iVANZi acts as the final arbiter and both parties must agree all decisions made following the case review process are binding.
