Seel Service Policy
- What does Shipping Protection cover?
Shipping Protection is a value-added service provided by Seel. It covers delayed, damaged, lost items, and delayed order fulfillment that meet the following criteria:
1) Fulfillment Delay
Shipping Protection guarantees that covered order is fulfilled within 9 days from the order date. If the shipment is not fulfilled within the specified timeframe, we provide unconditional order cancellation with a full refund.
2) Arrival delay
Domestic packages not delivered before the 30th day following order fulfillment (i.e., the date when the order is shipped) or international packages not delivered before the 30th day following order fulfillment are considered delayed. The compensation for delayed packages is $5 USD .
Domestic packages not delivered before the 30th day following order fulfillment (i.e., the date when the order is shipped) or international packages not delivered before the 60th day following order fulfillment are considered lost. The compensation for lost packages is the actual value paid for the purchased item(s).
Any shipment that displays a "delivery" scan but is not received by the customer is deemed a case of "porch piracy," which falls under the category of loss. However, additional supporting documentation may be necessary to determine eligibility for compensation.
Shipping Protection covers item damage to the point that the item(s) are unusable, clearly fractured, shattered, bent (if not bendable), crushed, etc., but does not cover cosmetic damage (scratches, dents, etc.), manufacturing damages, packaging errors, or unsealed items. The compensation for damaged items is up to the actual value paid for the purchased item(s).
* Total compensation for one cover is up to the value actually paid for the item(s).
- How does Shipping Protection resolve my issues?
When covered issues arise, shoppers can easily have them resolved at Seel Resolution Center.
To qualify for a payout, shoppers need to follow the issue reporting requirements:
1) Issues of loss, where the package is “not delivered” as per the carrier's information, must be reported within 90 days after the order date. Case of “porch piracy”, however, where the package is “delivered” according to carrier, must be reported within 7 days from the time the carrier’s information is updated to “delivered”.
2) Issues of damage, where the package is delivered, must be reported within 7 days from the time the carrier’s information is updated to “delivered”.
3) Issues of delay, where the package is delivered, must not be reported sooner than 10 days after the order fulfillment date for domestic shipments and 30 days for international shipments. All issues must be reported within 90 days of the order date.
Shoppers can access Seel Resolution Center from their order page, or the Shipping Protection confirmation email that Seel sent.
Compensation is paid out via Tremendous virtual visa card. Shoppers can also choose to redeem the amount to their PayPal account.
