Purchase Protection Policies


  1. Overview

Understanding Our Policies

Our Purchase Protection Policies are here to provide you with peace of mind whenever you make a purchase through onsite checkout on Treasurechit. We want you to have a great experience every time, but if you have an issue with your purchase, our Policies are in place to help make things right.

For the purposes of this policy, where specified, an individual seller refers to someone selling through a personal profile.

To qualify for Purchase Protection:

  • Make sure that your purchase is eligible as a Protected Purchase as defined in this policy.
  • Use onsite checkout on Treasurechit to complete your payment for the purchase. Purchases made through third-party sites, local pickups, or through third-party messaging services do not qualify.
  • Contact the seller first to let them know there's a problem with the purchase. For eligible purchases, if you can't resolve the issue directly with the seller, you may submit a claim through Treasurechit.
  • We will review your claim to determine whether it qualifies for Purchase Protection, and issue a refund for the full purchase price of the item, tax, and shipping fees if your claim is approved. Decisions are made in our sole discretion.

Refunds and Returns

If you are requesting a refund, remember to contact the seller within the return period specified in the product listing and follow the seller's instructions for returning the delivered item.

If the seller is unresponsive or is not following their stated return policy, you may still be required to provide a valid tracking number of the returned item or other proof of return to us in order to receive a Purchase Protection refund.
