When can I file a Shopvmj.com Guarantee claim?

You can file a Shopvmj.com Guarantee claim if you purchased physical goods from a seller or merchant selling on the Shopvmj.com website (including the Shopvmj.com Marketplace). See "Exclusions from coverage" below for a list of items that are not covered by the Shopvmj.com Guarantee.
One of the three conditions below must also apply:

  1. You made payment to the seller through the Shopvmj.com website, but the seller failed to deliver the item by 3 calendar days past the maximum estimated delivery date for an order or 30 days from the order date, whichever is sooner; or
  2. You received the item, but the item was defective, damaged, or not the item depicted in the seller's description; or
  3. You have returned the item to the seller per an agreement between the buyer and seller and the seller has not provided the agreed reimbursement to the buyer after receiving the item.

You must first contact the seller through Your Account before filing a claim. From the order details, click "Report this order?" and "Contact your Seller." Please allow three business days to give your seller a chance to address the issue. You can submit a Guarantee claim if the seller does not respond or if the issue is not addressed to your satisfaction.

When do I use the "Not satisfied with returns" reason while filing a Shopvmj.com Guarantee claim?

If a seller has clearly misrepresented the condition or details of an item in a way that affects its value or utility, it is "materially different." In such cases, that seller should be willing to offer a refund or exchange when contacted within 14 days of receiving the item.
When submitting your claim, please provide further details about the desired resolution by choosing one of these options:

  • Received no refund: You returned the item, but did not receive a refund from the seller.
  • Received no replacements: The seller promised a replacement, but you did not receive a replacement.
  • Received insufficient credit: The seller issued you a refund, but it's less than what you expected.
  • Ordered wrong items: You returned an item you ordered by mistake.

When do I use the "I did not receive my item or received them late" reason while filing a Shopvmj.com Guarantee claim?

If the estimated delivery date noted on your order detail page has passed and you have still not received the product(s) you ordered, you can file a claim citing the reason "I did not receive my item or received them late."
You can also choose the desired resolution:

  • Received item late and would like to return: The item arrived after the estimated delivery date, and you would like to return the item to the seller rather than keep it.
  • Did not receive full order or part of the order: Some or all items in the order have not been delivered to you yet.
  • Received items late and would like to have shipping credit: The item arrived beyond the estimated delivery date, but you would keep it if the seller were to issue you a refund for your shipping costs.

When do I use the "Order contained damaged/defective/incorrect items" reason while filing a Shopvmj.com Guarantee claim?

If a seller has clearly misrepresented the condition or details of an item in a way that affects its value or utility, it is "materially different" and that seller should be willing to offer a refund or exchange within 30 days of shipment. If the seller does not accept the return of an item that is made in accordance with the seller's return policy, you may qualify for coverage under our Shopvmj.com Guarantee. Please visit our Return Help pages for more information regarding returns.

Items are considered "damaged/defective or incorrect" in these circumstances:

  • Wrong version or edition: You received the item ordered, but it's a different version or edition than what was displayed on product page.
  • Item condition or details not as described: You received the item ordered, but it was a different condition (e.g., used or refurbished instead of new) or had an important detail that was not explained on product page.
  • Item was completely different from what was ordered: Seller mistakenly sent completely incorrect item. (e.g., Size 10 shoe instead of Size 8)
  • Missing parts or components: The item is missing parts or components. (e.g., Component set with Sub Woofer was ordered, but it was not received .i.e. The Woofer)
  • Item defective during first use: When you tried to first use the product, it did not work (e.g., DVD player did not turn on).
  • Item defective after first use: The product did not work or was broken on second or subsequent use.
  • Damaged item: The item delivered was visibly damaged (e.g. Craft Item you ordered had chipped pieces).

When submitting a Shopvmj.com Guarantee claim with the reason "order contained damaged/defective/incorrect items," you will need to select one of the reasons above and provide comments explaining what happened.
Note: This does not extend to cases where you are simply disappointed with an item. We will ultimately determine material difference at our discretion.
