Chargebacks

Valid use of the chargeback process;

 

The chargeback process gives consumers a way to dispute invalid transactions on their credit card statement by going through their bank instead of the business. Valid credit card disputes include:

  • Unauthorized transactions: These are fraudulent charges that can be the result of the loss or theft of a cardholder’s physical card or the high jacking of their card information by another means.

  • Billing errors: These may include incorrect purchase dates and amounts, failure to give credit for returns.

  • Unresolved customer complaints: If you are not satisfied with our response after contacting us, and feel that you are not going against the agreed upon store policies.

 

Misuse of the chargeback process;

 

There are situations where a customer may file a chargeback for reasons that aren’t technically legitimate. Invalid use of the chargeback process, whether by accident or on purpose, is fraud. Donut-Supplies.com will file charges if misuse incurs.

 

Examples include:

  • Avoiding the return process: A customer may decide to use the chargeback process instead of the return process if they feel that the return process is too difficult, they don’t understand it or the time limit for the return has expired.

  • Not recognizing the transaction: A customer may forget they made the purchase or not recognize the business name on their statement and file a dispute.

  • Claiming a legitimate purchase is fraud: Finally, there are times when a customer makes a legitimate purchase from a business and then disputes the charge as a means to avoid paying for it.

 

Steps that must be followed before initiating a valid claim for chargeback;

  • Please make sure you read and comply with all Donut-Supplies.com’s policies that are provided.

  • Contact our office at 1-918-739-4380 or email to:orders@donut-supplies.com and attempt to resolve the issue.

This service is available for an additional charge during the order checkout process.

Order Receiving Instructions

For receipt of freight shipments, you, the customer, are responsible for following these specific instructions before you or the person that receives the freight shipment signs the Receipt of Delivery or the Bill of Lading from the freight carrier driver. We will not be responsible for orders that are not fully inspected per our instructions.

 

Standard Delivery

Standard delivery, also known as curbside or "non-liftgate" delivery, involves the delivery driver pulling the truck to your business's curb. You will be responsible for removing the merchandise from the truck yourself. The driver is not expected to remove the item from the truck or to bring the item inside. If you do not have a loading dock or the item is excessively heavy, we do not recommend moving the item without assistance. It is recommended that you consider beforehand whether or not you will require liftgate service.

 

Shortages

The first step should be to inspect all packages to ensure you have received the exact quantity of ordered items. If there are any shortages, you are responsible for noting any shortages on the Bill of Lading while the freight carrier driver is physically present.

 

Inspection of Goods

You are responsible for inspecting the packages and the equipment / products inside the packaging at the delivery time. As the recipient, you may spend as much time as necessary to uncrate or remove packaging to ensure the product is in acceptable condition.

If you decide to wait to inspect the packaging or unpack any items in the shipment after the driver leaves, you will be responsible for any damages that are either in plain sight on the outside of the packaging or concealed damages.

After unpacking, carefully inspect the items. Check all panels for dents and dings, paying extra attention to corners.

If you find any significant damage or missing parts, call the Customer Service Department immediately at 1-918-739-4380 .

 

Damage Policy

If any of your orders is damaged, note the damage on the delivery receipt / bill of lading while the driver is there. You must be as specific as possible when noting damage. This is crucial in distinguishing if the damage is on the outside of the packaging or if it is on the actual item that you have unpacked in front of the driver.

Always take a minimum of five photos of any damage that has occurred to be prepared for an inspection from the freight carrier. Do not throw away any of the original inner or outer packaging.

Concealed Damage

In the case of damage to the item, not the outside packaging, this is considered concealed damage. If the driver has already left your delivery location, the freight carrier has no evidence that the item was harmed while in their possession. You must keep the original outer and inner packaging if any damage is discovered. Then, request inspection immediately from the freight carrier plus make a written request to the freight carrier. This must be reported immediately within 24 hours.

 

Damaged Items

If you sign your name on the freight bill without noting any damages, you are stating that you have received your order/ shipment in acceptable condition. Once this has occurred, there is no possibility of filing a freight claim, and there will be no reimbursement of freight charges, order costs or any other charges incurred by you from Donut-Supplies.com.

Once you have signed the Bill of Lading that your shipment arrived in acceptable condition, the item(s) belong to you.  You must immediately contact our Customer Service Department at 1-918-739-4380 while the freight carrier driver is present to report any damages.

They will instruct you on how to proceed with reporting the damages.

 

Refused Shipments & Unauthorized Returns

You will be responsible for full freight charges and applicable fees going both ways, plus a minimum 30% restocking fee for shipments that are refused for any reason other than damage (not applicable to items damaged in storage).

 

Canceled Orders

If you decide to cancel any part of your order after it has been shipped, please note that you will be responsible for the full round trip shipping and handling charges, plus any applicable restocking and repair fees. 

 

Custom & Special Orders: If you have placed an order for a custom or special order item, it may be canceled only before it enters the production period at the manufacturer. After the custom or special order has entered the production period, you will be responsible for the shipping costs and order amount. You will not be entitled to any refunds, credits or exchanges. 

 

In addition, once an order has shipped and payment has been processed, we do not refund taxes, even if the order is canceled. Please contact Customer Service at: 1-918-739-4380 with any questions.
