Bigblue compensation

The vast majority of Bigblue packages are delivered to your customers without a hitch! πŸ’ͺ
And even though we work every day to improve our quality of service, incidents do occur (e.g. preparation mistake, damaged parcel or lost parcel).

In this article, we explain:

  • how Bigblue compensates in these situations
  • how to proceed to make sure you'll get a compensation

Preparation mistake πŸ“¦

a) Inverted products or orders

  • Case: your customer received the wrong item or the wrong order
  • Compensation: 
    • 100% of the substitution order fees (to ship the right product to your customer)
    • 100% of the return label fees (to return the wrong products to the warehouse)
  • To get the compensation
    • you'll need to provide our Customer Care with:
      1. a photo of each wrong product received with its barcode visible on the photo
      2. a photo of the entire order received in their packaging
      3. a photo of the shipping label on the packaging received 
    • claims need to be submitted through the Bigblue app within 30 days after the order preparation

☝️ Why do we need these photos?
Photo 1. The products at the warehouse are identified by their barcode. We need to check that there is no barcode inversion and then investigate in the warehouse.
Photo 2. In the case of a multiple product order, it is essential for us to control what has been received by your customer in order to control the stocks in the warehouse.
Photo 3. The shipping label identifies the order after it leaves the warehouse and we need it to identify the packaging.

b) Missing item

  • Case: your customer is missing an item at reception (to ship the missing product to your customer)
  • Compensation: 100% of the substitution order fees
  • To get the compensation, you'll need to provide our Customer Care with:
    1. a photo of each wrong product received with its barcode visible on the photo
    2. a photo of the entire order received in their packaging
    3. a photo of the shipping label on the packaging received 

πŸ’‘ To prevent fraud, we recommend asking your customer for a handwritten letter. 

Damaged item πŸ€•

  • Case: your customer has received one or several items that have been damaged in transit
  • Compensation: 23€/kg (based on the package weight)
  • To get the compensation
    • you'll need to provide our Customer Care with
      1. a photo of the damaged product(s) where the damage is clearly visible
      2. a photo of the damaged product in their packaging. We should be able to see the entire packaging.
      3. a photo of the shipping label on the packaging received 
    • claims need to be submitted through the Bigblue app within 30 days after the order preparation

Delivered not received 😒

a) Delivery without a signature

If you choose a carrier service without a signature on delivery, no compensation can be claimed if your customer says they have not received their package. To prevent this from happening, you can opt for delivery with a signature. Find the list of carriers available on Bigblue at this link.

b) Delivery with signature

Your order was shipped with a signature-on-delivery service

  • Case: The order is marked as delivered but your customer did not receive it
  • Compensation: 23€/kg.
  • To get the compensation
    • you'll need to provide our Customer Care with:
      • a handwritten letter from your customer. A model is available at this link
      • a copy of your customer ID
    • claims need to be submitted through the Bigblue app within 30 days after the order preparation

What about Ad Valorem insurance? πŸ’°

If you have taken out Ad Valorem insurance, the compensation amounts are de-capped at the insured sale value in the following case:

  • Damaged item
  • Parcel loss
  • Parcel claimed as delivered but not received, in case of delivery with a signature
