You’ll never miss a shipping carrier credit or refund with BOLD Parcel: We do the work; you collect the savings.
By Molly Goad
Imagine you ordered something inexpensive online. It arrives, and it’s not exactly what you need. But you’re incredibly busy, and packaging a return for a $5 item seems more trouble than it’s worth. So you cast it aside.
Along the same line, companies often miss out on shipping refunds because it’s a tedious process to request them, and the amounts are small. Or, perhaps some shippers don’t even realize they are entitled to these dollars from their chosen carriers.
What are these credits I’m speaking of? Packages shipped via carriers like UPS, FedEx, or DHL Express receive a service guarantee, stating the parcel will get to its destination by the stated time. If this doesn’t happen, the shipper is entitled to a refund credit. Even if the package is just two minutes late, a refund can be claimed on both residential and commercial deliveries.
It would be amazing if carriers just dished out the refunds automatically, but yeah, it doesn’t work that way. Shippers need to go through a mundane routine of asking for the credit, and they often say, “forget it” because they don’t have the time or resources devoted to this task.
The amounts may seem small, but they are substantial when added together.
