As with transactions on any eCommerce websites, there will always be a small element of risk. In order to minimize that, every item that arrives the China logistics will be inspected**, and it is estimated that around 90% of all visibly defective items can discover during inspection. After you have received your parcel, you may request for refund if goods received is damaged, or goods deviate from your order.
Quantity of items will be checked to see if they match the quantity ordered.
(E.g. If you ordered 10 packs of hairpins with 100 pieces in each pack. We will only check and ensure that 10 packages are received and delivered.)
Items will be compared with the photograph of the item on the third party seller’s website. Do note that we might not be able to discover or non-apparent defects.
General colour of the product will be checked.
(Any small portion of color or design differences is not included in our check. Hot pink and Rose pink are all consider as pink. The colour of a product may vary from the colour as seen on your screen as colours represented on each screen may also vary depending on setting.)
Size will be checked according to the label on the item. We cannot be held responsible if the seller tag the wrong size to the item.
Obvious defects which can be detected visually such as tears, holes, scratches, stains, dents etc will be checked for.
* For purchases with unit price below RMB 50.00, only the quantity of your purchases will be checked.
* For bulk purchases, random spot checks will be conducted. (Eg. A single order with quantity above 100 pieces; inspection will be conducted randomly on the color, design & etc. instead of piece by piece,and we can only ensure about 95% accuracy in quantity.)
* For items that come in wooden crates or original packaging, inspection will not be conducted.
* Authenticity of product cannot be verified, please see note ** below.
Inspection does not include:
Expiry date of goods will not be inspected, unless it is stated in the "remark" section when the order is placed. However, we suggest you to take into consideration the shipping duration of international shipping, before you place order for item with expiry date. (Eg. Item has reached SGshop China warehouse before expiry date, however if you choose sea shipping which may take 19-32 working days to your doorstep, by the time you receive the item, expiry date may have already passed.)
Quality/functionality tests will not be conducted during the inspection. SGshop will not be held responsible for any quality or functionality related issues.
