Step-by Step Guide to Returns

 

Effective 1st October, all Returns must be submitted through the Flo online chat or through the admin panel on the dashboard which will connect you to Flo, our virtual assistant.

We are moving from a ticket-based system to a fully automated AI based hybrid system. The facility is available 24/7 x 365 days a year and will reduce the processing time drastically.

 

How does the process work?

  • Log into Flo by clicking the chat button and selecting the Returns tab
  • Enter your security key which is a 4-digit code visible at the top of your account dashboard
  • The screen will give you 2 options – ‘New Claim’ and ‘Existing Claim’ select ‘New Claim’ if it’s a new claim or type in your claim ID if it is Existing Claim
  • Once you click on ‘New Claim’ the system will automatically populate your delivered orders from the last 7 days
  • Select the relevant order in which you would like to raise a claim against (you can only select one at a time and within the last 7 days as claims have to be filed within 2 working days of receiving the product) g., if a product is delivered on Monday you have until 11:59pm on Wednesday to submit your claim, bank holidays and weekends and the day of the delivery doesn’t count
  • Select one of the following options ‘Manufacturing Defect’ or ‘Transit Damage(as B2B we do not accept change of mind returns)
  • Write a description of the damage/defect (up to 200 words) briefly explaining the reason for your submission
  • Upload up to 4 images of the damage / defect > subsequently the system will ask you for a video (this is optional)  Product pictures are paramount as our  logistics partner or manufacturing site  would not accept a counter claim without this proof. Failure to do so will result in rejection of your claim.
  • Upload up to 4 images of the inner and outer packaging showcasing the label side of the box. This is paramount as our  logistics partner or manufacturing site  would not accept a counter claim without this proof. Failure to do so will result in rejection of your claim.
  • If you’re happy with everything then click submit (please note your submission will be locked and you will NOT be able to edit this or add pictures at a later time)
  • The system will automatically fire an email with the claim ID to your registered email with a link to track the progression of your claim

Pre-Claim Status

  • Claim Submitted – As soon as a claim is successfully submitted the tracking will automatically change to ‘Claim Submitted
  • Processing – This can take up to 48 hours or longer depending on the complexity of the case
  • Not happy? Escalate (click this link to book an appointment with a senior member of the team, once the case is escalated it will be passed onto another member of the Returns Team for an impartial and independent decision)
  • Resolved
  • Case is resolved by a mutual agreement
  • The decision made by the Returns Team is final and no further correspondence can be made

Claim is Closed and has moved to post-Claim status if applicable

  • Post-Claim Status
  • Collection – Once your claim is approved, we will contact you to organize a collection of the damaged product to be returned back to us.
  • This will be followed by a collection number, courier, collection date and delivery date back into our warehouse
  • Dispose of – On a case-to-case basis the returns team can approve a disposal of a product e.g., a mirror frame / home décor piece which is smashed in transit

Once the damaged item is delivered back to our warehouse, we will then organize a new one to be sent out.

  • Free Replacement – A replacement of the whole product or a part of the product (such as a wall bracket, leg or knob) the parts are usually shipped directly from our factory in India and can be tracked using a Fedex / United Courier consignment number and link which will be provided
  • Refund – This can be partial, full or in certain cases it could be a good-will gesture, this decision is finalized by the returns team.
  • This will be followed by the source of refund, (bank transfer / stripe) the refund amount, refund percentage, date of refund and a credit note number

The returns department works on strict guidelines and the products will only be collected free of charge once the claim is approved by the Returns Team and regretfully, we cannot accept any other options such as self-paid returns.
