Minimize Discrepancy. Maximize Efficiency


Identify incorrect charges faster

Weight dispute management saves time and reduces costs by helping in the identification of incorrectly charged shipments in a matter of minutes.

Resolve disputes quickly

Weight dispute management assists in resolving weight-related conflicts that may arise with the courier partners, speedily and accurately, leading to no discrepancies, and happy customers. In case of dispute, the amount under dispute is kept on hold which is released once the dispute has been resolved.

Process disputes timely

Once an incorrect charge has been identified, the seller has 7 working days to raise a dispute. All disputes are resolved within 5-6 working days to ensure faster reimbursements.

Uninterrupted Shipments

Weight disputes are independent of tracking and do not affect the shipment of the products. Only the amount will be kept on hold, while the shipment stays unaffected and products are delivered.

Access dispute logs

In the Weight Discrepancy panel, sellers can see the history of their previously raised and resolved disputes. The in-depth report in the panel helps in identifying the status of the dispute and the remarks of the courier partner regarding the dispute.
