Fulfillment policy update
The orders created during the period of December 15, 2022, to January 9, 2023, will get 3 additional days for fulfillment. This way, each order will have 12 days to get “Shipped” status so that you will have more time to prevent your orders from being canceled in case of emergency.
PLEASE NOTE: All the orders will be included in Quick Fulfillment Rate and influence your store’s performance metrics. If you cannot fulfill most orders in 3 days and do not meet the quick fulfillment requirements, your store might be pessimized. To avoid this, we recommend:
- Pay attention to your products and their stocks. Ensure to disable the products that cannot be surely ship or are out of stock in the warehouse.
- Carefully monitor your orders and try to ship them as soon as possible.
If you have problems with shipping your orders due to quarantine in Yiwu city, please contact our Merchant Support team.
We understand that quarantine is not predictable, and you cannot know when it ends. For that reason, we urge you to disable the products or the store beforehand till the quarantine ends, so you don’t get the orders you cannot ship. You can easily activate them again any time later.
Starting from April, 14th, we no longer extend fulfillment time for the orders you received during quarantine period. However, we are still able to extend fulfillment time for the orders created 9 days before the quarantine was officially introduced in your region, so you have more time to ship them. We are ready to give you 10 extra days for those orders.
For example: Quarantine began in your region on April, 9th, and you didn’t have a chance to fulfill your orders prior to that date. You can apply to get 10 extra days to fulfill the orders created during the period from April, 1st to April, 9th inclusive. However, we will not extend fulfillment time for the orders created after April, 10th. We urge you to disable the products till the quarantine ends.
In order to apply to extend fulfillment time, please contact the merchant support team. Please be ready to provide the proof of quarantine being officially introduced in your region: a link to a news website or a document. Reviewing your application to extend fulfillment time might take up to three days, and we keep the right to decline your application at our discretion.
Starting from April, 9th, we no longer exclude orders from store's performance metrics (Quick Fulfillment Rate and Order Cancellation Rate).
PLEASE NOTE: If you face quarantine in your region, you will have to temporarily disable the products you cannot ship or the whole store. This requirement is obligatory. When quarantine is almost or already over, don't forget to enable them once again.
Please consider this requirement, when applying for extending fulfillment time, as you face the risk of being pessimized for failing to ship the orders we extended fulfillment time for.
We extended our fulfillment time: all orders created from 10 March to 22 March were counted as “Approved” on 22 March. Merchants had 9 days to ship them.
We also temporarily turned off Quick Fulfillment Rate for the orders created during the period 10-22 March. Merchants could find the metric in the Merchant Panel,however, it didn't affect the store’s performance. The metric was enabled on 12 April.
We will follow up the situations and policies closely in China and keep you up to date.
