When an order issue is reported and resolved, your product will either be reordered or refunded depending on in-stock availability and the percentage of discounts received. In some cases, order issues may not be approved per the Route Package Protection policies.
In this article, you can read more about what to expect in each scenario and where to reach out for further questions:
Shortly after Route has processed your reorder, you will receive a confirmation email from the retailer that includes the new order number and receipt of purchase. Once the retailer fulfills the order, you will receive another email with tracking information: tracking number, and a link to track via the carrier service (i.e. UPS, USPS, etc.).
Every reorder placed through Route will also be covered by Route Package Protection in the case of lost, stolen, or damaged items. So rest assured that you can always reach out to us should you experience another protected situation!
Lastly, we highly recommend downloading our app and utilizing Route’s Visual Tracking in order to keep an eye on reorder package status updates and future orders in one, user-friendly place.
Refunds are calculated on the exact price you paid for the item(s) - excluding the cost of shipping, taxes, discounts, and Route Package Protection - and are processed via PayPal or directly to your original form of payment*.
Once your refund has been processed, you should expect to see funds reflect in your PayPal balance within the next business day (if not much sooner). Sometimes it’s tricky to navigate how to transfer those funds to your bank account, so you can also reference this PayPal article if you need help!
If your payment is processed to your original form of payment, you can expect to see those back to your account within 5-7 business days.
*Route uses PayPal due to their secure, user-friendly as most of our online merchants do not share your payment information with us, such as your credit card number, etc. For this reason, while we can refund your original method of payment for some merchants, for others we are required to use PayPal.
Currently, Route is developing some incredible additions to our services that would include the ability to put money right back into your pocket for all merchants. However, until we release those features, PayPal is our safest, most efficient option for returning your money to you in those circumstances.
If you do not currently have a PayPal account, don’t worry! PayPal is easy, fast, and free to set up, all you need to do is follow this link to get started: https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/account-selection.
