Logistics is very complex and unfortunately, sometimes happens that packages get damaged or even lost. We are really sorry if you belong to the small percentage of people that experienced trouble like this. But, don’t worry. We are going to show you how to open a claim request for damaged and lost packages so you can get your money back.
We have a dedicated feature for opening claim requests for Lost or Damaged Packages. Remember, you are eligible to get a full refund* if you pay for insurance. If the package is not insured, you won’t get any refund.
*Full refund includes the price of the shipping, price of the additional services, and value of the package included in the customs declaration.
