Disputes & Claims Resolution Policy

Partner Disputes

noon Sellers may sometimes find issues or discrepancies on their forward or reverse stock transfers despite noon’s rigorous efforts, thus, noon has designed a mechanism that will allow such issues or discrepancies to be reported. This mechanism is called Partner Disputes.

Dispute Types, Requirements and Creation Procedures 

Creating a Partner Dispute is a simple process. A noon seller has only to log in to their Seller Lab, search and view the shipment AWB, and then click on it on the ‘Create Dispute’ button. 

Tabulated below are the different dispute types along with their respective dispute description, statement types, and additional links:

Tracking your Partner Disputes

Dispute resolution

Generally, dispute resolution takes at least 14 business days and the timeframe may vary depending upon the nature of the dispute and the investigation process.

Important notes:

  • noon reserves the right to reject Partner Disputes in the event that the seller is non-responsive or not being able to provide the requested supporting documents or images
  • noon reserves the right to penalize the seller (monetary or non-monetary) if found to be fraudulent or proven that the Partner Disputes mechanism is being used inappropriately or in an abusive manner
  • Approved dispute payouts are net of commissions and any relevant noon fees
  • For any item which is ‘Beyond Economic Repair’, noon will pay a maximum of ‘Grade N’ (for item grading disputes) and 80% (for the remaining categories of disputes). 
  • noon’s decision on the disputes will be considered final and binding

noon reserves the right to make any amendment/ changes to this policy without any prior notice. It is the Sellers’ responsibility to check this policy for any updates or changes in the policy.
