If a customer has a problem with their order, or if they change their mind about a purchase, they’ll get in touch with you and ask for help. Once the buyer tells you there’s a problem, you’ve got 3 business days to resolve it.
If an item has gone missing and hasn’t arrived, you’ll either need to provide additional, or offer a replacement or refund. If the buyer got their item but it’s faulty, damaged, or doesn’t match the listing description, you’ll have to work with them to resolve their issue – If they changed their mind, how you can respond, will depend on your return policy.

Tips for avoiding issues with buyers If a buyer doesn’t receive their item, they’re entitled to a refund or a replacement. When a buyer lets you know they’ve run into an issue, you should work with them to come to a solution that works for both of you. Handle a return request
If the buyer wants to return an item to you, your options for responding will depend on why they want to send it back. If the item is damaged, faulty, or doesn’t match the listing description, they’re covered by the Slitos Money Back Guarantee, and you’ll have to refund them or replace the item. If they’ve changed their mind, your options will depend on your return policy.
If you accept a return from the buyer, they’ll need to send the item back to you before you issue a refund or send out a replacement, and what your return policy says. Unable to resolve the buyer’s issue? Ask Slitos to step in
Ask Slitos to step in
If you and the buyer haven’t been able to come to an agreement after 3 business days, you can ask us to step in and resolve the issue. We’ll assess all the information and come to a decision. It’s important to remember that if you ask us to step in and we close the case in the buyer’s favor, you could receive a defect, which might affect your seller standards – so you should only ask us for help when you’ve exhausted all other options.
Appeal Slitos decision on a case
If you disagree with our decision after we’ve been asked to step in, you can ask us to take another look. In order to request an appeal, you’ll have to provide additional details for us to take into consideration, such as photographs showing there’s nothing wrong with the item. We’ll review your new information, and get back to you with our final decision, usually within 48 hours.
