5. Reporting a Problem with an Order or Returning an Item
Craftart4you’s Case System
Although craftart4you is not directly involved in a transaction between a buyer and a seller, we provide a case system in the unlikely event that your order does not go as expected. By using craftart4you’s case system, you understand that craftart4you may use your personal information for the purpose of resolving disputes with other members. You can use craftart4you’s case system to come to a resolution with the seller in the event of a non-delivery or if an item you receive is not as described in the listing. If you choose a refund as your preferred resolution, keep in mind that craftart4you only allows on-platform refunds for a period of 180 days post-transaction. After this 180 window has elapsed, craftart4you cannot support on-platform refunds for your order. However, you may still communicate directly with the seller to come to an off-platform resolution. Refunds issued by craftart4you will be in your original form of payment, and if such payment is not available, an craftart4you credit will be issued.
A non-delivery occurs when a buyer places an order but does not receive the item. The following are examples of non-delivery cases:
- There is no proof that the item was shipped to the buyer.
- An item was not sent to the address provided on craftart4you.
Not as Described
An item is not as described if the buyer can demonstrate that it is significantly different from the seller’s listing description or photos. Here are a few examples of not as described cases:
- The item received is a different color, model, version, or size.
- The item has a different design or material.
- The seller failed to disclose that an item is damaged or is missing parts.
- The buyer received the incorrect quantity of items (e.g., the buyer purchased three items but only received two).
- The item was advertised as authentic but is not authentic.
- The condition of the item is misrepresented (e.g., the item is described as new but is used).
Not as described cases can also be filed for late delivery. In order to qualify as late delivery, the buyer must provide proof that all of these conditions have been met:
- The item(s) were ordered for a specific date or event.
- The item(s) are rendered useless after that date.
- The seller did not ship the item(s) according to their processing time or the date agreed upon in Messages.
If craftart4you determines that an item is not as described, the seller will be required to refund the order, including original shipping and return shipping. In the event that craftart4you needs to refund the return shipping cost on behalf of the seller, that refund may come in the form of a craftart4you Credit.
Requesting a Cancellation
Only sellers may cancel transactions. Buyers may request that a seller cancel an order via Etsy Messages.
Returning an Item
Each seller has his or her own return policies, which should be outlined in their Shop Policies. Not all sellers accept returns. If you reside in the European Union, you may be entitled to a 14-day “cooling off period,” or a “right of withdrawal,” during which you may return an item for any reason.
