    Inspire Uplift’s Case System

    Even though Inspire Uplift is not directly involved with any of the sale or purchasing of products between the seller and the buyer, we still provide a case system in the unfortunate events of you, as a buyer, not receiving the product as expected. By using Inspire Uplift Case System, you agree to provide your personal information necessary to resolve the dispute. Inspire Uplift Case System can be used to find a resolution in the event where the product was not delivered to you or is not as what was described in the product description. If you want a refund, please remember that Inspire Uplift only allows refunds on-platform and that too, only for a period of 180 days after the transaction was made. If you want an off-platform solution, you can contact the seller directly. Inspire Uplift issues refund in the original form of payment; if not, then it will be issued in terms of Inspire Uplift Store Credit.

    Non-Delivery

    A non-delivery is when a buyer placed an order but did not receive the product even after going through all the purchasing processes. This case occurs in situations when:

    • A product is delivered to the wrong address, which was not on the Inspire Uplift receipt in the first place.
    • The proof of dispatching a product to a buyer does not exist.

    Not as Described

    A product is not as described if the buyer can show through pictures and other means that the product is not what the seller described it to be in the product’s description and photos. A few examples of such cases are:

    • The product is a different color, size, model, or version.
    • The material or design of the product is different.
    • The seller did not tell that the product is missing some part or is damaged in some way.
    • The quantity of items received is different from what was in the description of the product. For example, a set of 6 spoons was ordered, but the buyer received only 5.
    • The product was shown to be authentic, but it was a copy or a replica of the original.
    • The condition of the product is wrongly mentioned. For example, the product is listed as new, but it is used or second-hand.

    Not-as-described cases can also be filed for a product with late delivery. This can be a case in a situation where the product was ordered for a specific date, e.g., Christmas, Thanksgiving, but the seller was unable to deliver at the agreed-upon date. Since the products are of no use after the date, the product is considered to be late delivered.

    If Inspire Uplift determines that the product delivered is not what was described in the product listing, the seller is required to pay a refund to the buyer, including the original and return postage. If Inspire Uplift has to refund the return postage cost on behalf of the seller, then it may come in your Inspire Uplift Payment Account in the form of Inspire Uplift Credit.

    Ineligible Transactions

    Some disputes and transactions are ineligible for the Case System for example:

    • If an item was properly packaged by the seller but the delivery carrier damaged it in some way.
    • If a product was altered, used, washed, or worn after receipt.
    • Items that were delivered after the decided delivery date because of the delays from the delivery carrier.
    • Products that are returned without any return agreement.
    • Items that are as per their description but do not meet the buyer’s expectations.
    • The cost of delivery disputes.
    • Items that are prohibited from selling on Inspire Uplift.
    • Transactions in which payments are not made through the Inspire Uplift checkout system.

    Requesting a Cancellation

    Only sellers can cancel transactions. If a buyer wants to cancel it, he may contact the seller through Messenger and request him to cancel the order. All cancellations must comply with Anti-Discrimination Policy.
