One of the most frustrating aspects of online shopping is certainly the management
of faulty items.
This is a rare problem that can happen regardless of whether the buyer sponsors
an online retailer or a traditional store.
However, tackling the problem can be more difficult when shopping online.
Addressing this problem can be a little more difficult when the consumer buys an article online,
but there are some useful tips that can make treatment of defective items significantly
less stressful and failure to comply with these tips can make it difficult for
online shoppers to have a defective item replaced.
This article will discuss some of these useful tips, namely the importance of
testing articles immediately, contacting online retailers and addressing the
lack of responsibility of online retailers to help online shoppers handle this dilemma.
Test the articles immediately after their arrival
A very important advice for online shoppers is to test the items immediately upon arrival
from the online retailer.
This means that the buyer must open and test the item as soon as possible after delivery.
Doing this is important for a couple of very important reasons.
One of these reasons is to test the element for functionality immediately will help ensure
that the online buyer is able to return the item within the limits of the return policy
of online retailers.
Online retailers often have specific return policies and failure to comply with these
guidelines may result in the buyer not being able to return the item for a refund or exchange.
These policies can vary significantly from one online retailer to the next and some policies
may be more liberal than others.
However, consumers who determine an item are defective
within a couple of days after receiving the item will probably still be within the
period in which the returns are still accepted even with online retailers offering
the dirtiest return policies.
Another reason why it is important to test an item purchased online for functionality
immediately after receiving the article is that it helps to ensure that the consumer
will not lose the original packaging or receipt.
This is important because most online retailers require that the item be
returned with an original receipt and in the original packaging.
It is certainly still possible that online shoppers lose the receipt, but it is less likely to
do so if they immediately understand that the item is faulty.
Contact the online retailer
Once an online buyer realizes that an item is faulty, the first step should be to contact online retailers. This should be done immediately because the online retailer will probably document the defect claim during this initial call and this documentation will serve as proof of when the item was reported as faulty. This demonstration will be useful if the online retailer gives customers problems with returning the item and there is a need to take legal action.
In most cases, the receipt will list a contact telephone number that will put the consumer in contact with a customer service representative. However, if the receipt does not have this information the consumer can return to the online retailer’s website to find the necessary contact information. The consumer must then contact a customer service representative and describe the problem with the article as accurately as possible. In most cases the customer service representative will be able to provide the consumer with information on how to return the item for an exchange or refund.
When the online retailer does not respond
As with any retailer, it is always possible that the online buyer is not satisfied with the response to the complaint offered by the online retailer. The buyer may be dissatisfied with the response offered by the online retailer or be dissatisfied with the lack of response from the online retailer. Regardless of the reason for dissatisfaction, the consumer will probably have to follow other methods to get a response to his complaint. The consumer may want to raise his claim by asking to speak with a supervisor. If this does not solve the situation, you may need to file a complaint with an agency like Better Business Bureau. They can contact the retailer on behalf of the disgruntled consumer and try to correct the situation.
