I have received a different product than what I had dispatched in return. What should I do?

If a supplier has received a different product which does not belong to them in return then, they need to highlight the issue through email at paymentdisputes@shop101.com and to their Key Account Manager’s official email within 2 days from the date of receiving the product. (After 48 hours we will be unable to approve your claim) The vendor needs to share the Order ID of the product in the email body or the email subject line and attach the unpacking video along with an image of the invoice/shipping label. It is absolutely necessary for the vendor to share the unpacking video as claims will be denied if these details are not available. Shop101 Payment Disputes team will validate the claim and revert to the vendor’s email within the next 48 hours with an approval or denial of the claim.

I have received a different/damaged product OR empty package than what I had dispatched in RTO. What should I do?

In such cases, vendors need to accept the order and make sure that a note is made in the POD of the delivering logistics that said order was delivered with the encountered issue. This will help us investigate if the vendor received an incorrect product in return and lower the chances of receiving wrong/damaged returns in RTO orders.

My wrong return reimbursement claim is approved but I did not receive the reimbursement amount. When will I get the reimbursement?

The wrong return reimbursement amount for all supplier claims is collectively released on the first Friday of each month. If a vendor had claimed the wrong return reimbursement in the month of June 20, then the reimbursement amount will be released on the first Friday of July 20. Any claims approved on the first Friday of the said month will be considered as a part of the reimbursement for the next month and thus will be released on the next month’s First Friday.

I am unable to process orders on the portal OR generate shipping labels OR unable to access the panel and receiving an error message. How should I proceed?

Please make sure that you have mentioned the Order IDs of the order in the email body for record purposes. This allows the KAM team to take prompt actions and get your order dispatched within SLA or at least prepare alternatives in case the delay in dispatch is imminent. This is mandatory in case your order will be cancelled to avoid penalty charges.

My order was dispatched a month ago and returned by the buyer but I have not received it in return. Where can I find it’s details?

(In such cases, please do not request status/payment concerns for bulk orders).

Details of all of your orders can be found in a single consolidated sheet named “Sales report” which can be downloaded from your WS panel. Steps to download payment sheets have been provided in Point 2. Once you have downloaded the Sales report, you will find details such as Current order status, Forward tracking ID, Payment details (if the order is delivered), Return Tracking ID and the logistics website link to track your return orders. You can make sure of this information to track your return orders on a real-time basis. If in case, the order for which you are checking the details shows the order as returned but you have not received it then, you may request for a POD from payment.disputes@shop101.com or from your KAM within 45 days from the date of order placing.

It is not necessary that logistics will provide PODs of all the orders for which you have requested the PODs for. If you have requested more than 10 PODs then we shall provide you with 5-7 PODs on a test check basis assuming that you have not maintained records of the same.

I was charged with a penalty on a few of my orders after dispatch/cancellation. How should I avoid being penalized for orders OR minimize my penalties?

Penalties during order dispatch are charged if any order was dispatched after SLA (in RTO) or was cancelled by the buyer after the SLA date. After receiving an order, it needs to be dispatched within 2 day (48 hours) which is also our SLA. Failure to dispatch within SLA will result in a penalty charged to the order is said order is RTO. We believe that the risk of order being rejected by the buyer increases more the dispatch of the order is delayed.

We also charge penalties if the order was cancelled by the vendor for xyz reason. Cancellation due to products out of stock also attracts a penalty. If a vendor wishes to mark a product as out of stock, then the same needs to be highlighted to the KAM on a priority to avoid receiving orders for those products and later being charged with penalty for cancelling these orders.

I was charged with return charges on orders. Why were these penalties charged?

Return charges are charges when an order is returned by a buyer for any reasons. These charges are based on the weight of the product. If the weight of the order is less than 500gms then Rs.110+GST18% will be the return charges levied on the order. If the weight of the order is more than 500gms then Rs.150+GST18% will be levied. Only exempt to these charges is for Private label vendors.

I want to know the process of filing my GST for Shop101 sales. How should I do that?

Remember to book Sales on your books (WS price + Shipping) as listed in your payout sheet in the name of Reseller and reseller’s state. Alternatively, refer to the Announcements section on the Seller panel (WS panel) for the same. Shop101 does not generate/provide sales invoices for each order. The vendor has to generate these invoices on their own using the details available in their Sales report or the weekly payment sheet for the particular month. These invoices should be only generated for delivered orders. In the case of returned, RTO and cancelled orders, vendors also need to generate a manual credit note. If the order was placed in the month of March and was delivered in the month of April (example orders placed on the month end) then, the sale will be considered in the month of April since Shop101 only considers delivered orders.
