Our Policy

You can request reimbursement from Amazon for your products that are lost or damaged by Amazon during onward or return transit. You can also request reimbursement from Amazon when you have already issued a refund to the customer from your account and you do not receive the returned item, whether in its original condition or otherwise. Amazon, in its sole discretion, may reimburse you based on the item price in the order less any applicable fees (e.g. the Amazon Easy Ship fee which is charged for the successful delivery) and less the residual value of the product (if any). Any reimbursements related to customer returns will be in accordance with the Amazon Returns Policies. If you have issued refunds based on a more generous returns policy (e.g., accepting a return of a non-returnable item) then any reimbursement requests related to those more generous refunds will not be granted.

You agree that any reimbursement issued constitutes full and final settlement from Amazon and any of its affiliates or subcontractors in relation to the relevant reimbursement request(s).

Note:
  • For products marked as damaged by the carrier reimbursement will be forty percent (40%), less any relevant fees as per our discretion.
  • Reimbursement for undeliverable lost products will be one-hundred percent (100%), less any relevant fees as per our discretion.
  • For other use cases the residual value might vary on a case-to-case basis which will be determined by Amazon at Amazon’s sole discretion. Amazon reserves the right to alter the terms including the residual value.
  • All requests related to lost items should be filed no sooner than fifteen (15) days from the date the shipment was marked as ‘picked up’ to allow sufficient time for the package to be delivered.
  • All requests related to returns should be filed within seven (7) days from the date the shipment was marked as “returned/delivered to seller” in Seller Central or the refund initiation date, whichever is later.
  • All requests must be initiated within 60 days of the last scan or event from the carrier – requests initiated beyond this point will not be considered for reimbursement.
  • In certain cases where an item is declared as “Undeliverable” by Amazon/Logistic Service Provider (LSP), we may proactively reimburse you on a periodic basis for the value of the Easy Ship shipment fees charged for the provision of services according to the Amazon Easy Ship Terms and Conditions. You may not request reimbursement separately for such cases.
  • The timelines set out above are applicable only for shipments where Amazon is responsible for the return/reverse logistics. In the rare case that you have an Amazon Easy Ship order where the customer used a ‘self-ship return’ (not with our partnered courier), a reimbursement request must be filed at least 30 days from, but not later than 60 days from, the return request date.
  • Amazon will not reimburse you for returned shipments, if an attempt was made to deliver the shipment within 15 days from the return pick-up or the reject/undeliverable date but the delivery could not be completed because you were not available or refused to accept the shipment.

Additional guidelines


  1. If you file a fraudulent reimbursement request or misuse or abuse our policy in any form or manner, Amazon reserves the right to reject any or all the outstanding reimbursement requests made by you, recover any amounts already reimbursed (in respect of any previous requests), suspend you from selling on Amazon and take any or all such action under the Amazon Services Business Solutions Agreement and/or as may be permitted under applicable law.
  2. You are required to ensure that the products ordered by the customer are packaged such that transit damage may be avoided. Amazon will not be liable to compensate you for the shipments damaged during the onward or return transit if the damage occurred on account of poor or insufficient packaging. Please refer to the packaging guidelines for packages to be shipped using the Amazon Easy Ship service.
