While shipping issues on ShareGrid are rare, it's crucial to know how to address them if they arise. Follow these steps to navigate any shipping-related problems effectively:

For Buyers:

  1. Reporting Shipping Issues:

    • Alert ShareGrid support immediately if you encounter a shipping problem. Ensure you report it within the 48-hour review period after the sale.

  2. Damaged Items:

    • Documentation: If the item arrives damaged, take multiple photos showing the damage from different angles.

    • Return: Send the damaged item back to the seller. Use a different box if the original is compromised, following our Shipping Guide.

    • Support: Once notified, ShareGrid will communicate with the seller to prompt them to file a claim with their shipping carrier or insurer.

  3. Lost Items:

    • Tracking: Monitor the delivery status using the tracking number provided. A 'package exception' status may indicate a delivery issue.

    • Report: If you notice a problem, please contact ShareGrid support immediately. We'll coordinate with the seller to start a claim.

For Sellers:

  1. Shipping Precautions:

    • Minimize issues by following best practices. Review our Shipping Guide before dispatching any item.

  2. When Issues Are Reported:

    • If a buyer reports a shipping problem, ShareGrid support will contact you. The claim process depends on your chosen shipping coverage:
