http://i.imgur.com/uxmNY.gif Payment Guarantee Policy:
How it works:
Amazon ‘s Payment Guarantee Policy is a unique benefit that offers you protection from unwarranted refunds, allowing you to accept more high risk orders. For all eligible transactions, we will completely reimburse you for any refunds resulting from claims of unauthorized purchases and non-receipt of goods.
Verify an order’s eligibility:
Amazon sends an invoice to a buyer only after our Financial Department has verified all the following information:
-paperwork of the vehicle, including ownership and clear title
-seller’s information and proof of ID
-Possession of the vehicle that is being sold. We do not initiate a transaction until we have the vehicle stored in our warehouse with all the paperwork.
The item is currently stored in our storage facility number 11 in Omaha, Nebraska.
Amazon Buyer Coverage:
Buyers who pay for qualified physical goods using Amazon are eligible for a coverage up to $20,000.00.
Amazon has built up a base of millions of satisfied customers over the years through an intense focus on being responsive to their concerns and acting quickly to resolve any outstanding problems. The vast majority of customers never need to use the A-to-Z Guarantee reimbursement program, but for those who do, the guarantee claim gives customers a greater sense of trust and confidence in shopping from the broad range of sellers.
Protection and refund:
Once the vehicle is delivered, the buyer has a 5 days inspection period. After the inspection period is over, the buyer will contact Amazon with the results of the inspection. If, for any reason, the vehicle does not pass the Purchaser’s inspection, it will be returned to the seller, on seller’s expense and the funds will be returned to the buyer, in full in within 24 hours, using the same payment method, Amazon Gift Card transfer.
For safety reasons the payment details will be dealt with the utmost security and will not be handed to any third parties. Amazon will be in full control of the funds as soon as it reaches our trust fund account, so we will be able to protect and guarantee your funds. Once the funds have been sent to our trust fund account, no one but the Purchaser will have access to it.
Amazon will release the funds to the Seller only after the Purchaser receives and agrees with the item. Should the Purchaser need a refund for this transaction the amount received will be sent back via Amazon Gift Card. The account is managed and supervised by Amazon’s Financial Agents.
