What can I do if I am not satisfied with my order?
We are sorry! We encourage you to contact the provider first and drop us a message using the 'Contact Us' form so that our team can assist you.
How do I cancel an order?
Buyers can mark a paid transaction as disputed after the transaction request has been approved and BEFORE it is marked as “completed”. The Dispute feature is a way for buyers to clearly communicate to providers that if not happy with how the transaction is handled. To resolve a dispute, involvement from admins is required.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT confirm/mark the order completed until you have received the goods and are satisfied.
If you confirm the order as completed, the admins can not do anything after! 8pron doesn't intervene with businesses. However, we provide a standard of guidelines that everyone should follow.
How to do it:
1. The buyer should contact the provider and vice versa for negotiation to cancel the agreement. If both parties agree, the buyer can cancel the order by clicking on the 'dispute' button to notify the admin team.
2. Both parties have to leave a simple note about the cancellation on the in-app messaging (same conversation box) so that the admin team can investigate and process the cancellation and refund accordingly.
For example: "ATTN To 8pron: Please kindly give full/partial OR the specific amount of refund to XXX for the reason of XXX as agreed by both of us (Names of the buyer and seller)". Depending on the cancellation type, commission or services fee will charge, which wouldn't be refunded. Apology for the long instruction. We are just protecting all users and providing fair treatment.
Please kindly refer to the cancellation policy for more information in T&C.
