www.spotlessfruits.com is a website operated by marketers for selling farm produce, primarily fruits, which you are aware, are perishable products. You understand that these fruits cannot be stored beyond a certain time limit. Hence any return is bound to kill the quality of the product.
Hence, as a policy, we do not accept returns, for all products. Exception here are cases where you receive damaged, pressed, squeezed or crushed consignments. In such cases, you may return the consignment, provided you give us a call or send us and when such consignments reach you. The number to call in such cases are +91 8169861024, the email id to send an email is email@example.com.
You are aware that once you place an order, our farmers harvest the produce to process your orders. You are aware that fruits once harvested, cannot be put back on to the trees. Hence, as a policy, orders once placed and paid for will not be cancelled. We may, at our sole discretion, consider postponement of your order, provided we get your update soon enough and operationally we are in a position to do so.
Replacement Policy For Bad Fruits
We, as a Marketer, are committed to give you the best fruits and complete returns for your every rupee. We hope you understand that these are naturally grown fruits and no one can fathom nature. Fresh Fruits and Vegetables may likely get impacted by unruly weather. You understand that humans like you and us and our behaviour is responsible for climate change, and that is messing up monsoon, summer and winter all across the world.
It will be unfortunate if you receive such fruits, but you need to understand that we will remain committed to you. Please be assured that we do not pack bad fruits while we are shipping to you. We understand the power of social media, and pure human behaviour. If we give bad produce deliberately, then our brand will soon get a bad name, we will not have repeat customers and we will soon go out of business. So why would we do that?
We are not fly by night operators. We are here for the long term. We founded in 2015, and have been going strong. Hence, we give replacement for bad fruits & vegetables. YES, WE GIVE FREE REPLACEMENT FOR BAD FRUITS. Hence, we offer replacement in two very specific cases, subject to specific conditions. They are as follows.
We will offer you replacement in two cases.
Damaged Fruits: Though in rare cases, but at times, the courier travel may damage the fruits by the time they reach you. In such a case, the box used to send the fruits to you will be damaged too. If you encounter such a box, we will offer you replacement for such bad or rotten fruits, provided you inform us via call or email within 6 hours of receiving such consignments, and send us pictures of the damaged fruits and box within 12 hours of receiving such consignments. The number to call in such cases are +91 8169861024, the email id to send an email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bad or Rotten Fruits: Though in rare cases, but at times, fruits that look perfectly good from outside, may be bad or rotten from inside. You understand that this is nature and not a man-made product and we cannot, in spite of all efforts, say for sure what is inside the fruit. If you encounter such fruits, we will offer you replacement for such bad or rotten fruits, provided you inform us via call or email within 6 hours of receiving such consignments, and send us pictures of the damaged fruits and box within 12 hours of receiving such consignments. To simplify this further, this means that when you encounter such fruits, which could be two or three days after receiving the parcel from courier, inform us within the time limit. To make this even clearer, assume that you got the parcel three days ago and the fruits were not yet ripe, today they ripen, and you cut them, and you find them bad, inform us with pics within the time limit. You also understand that fruits come with very short shelf life and should be consumed within that time frame. The shelf life of the some is around four to six days for Mangoes, from delivery to you, after which the taste starts dropping. Developing of wrinkles on the fruit is also a sign of the end of ideal shelf life of the fruits. We have put up this policy to help people get the worth of their money. We are not fly by night operators, who want to run off with your money. The numbers to call in such cases are +91 8169861024, the email id to send an email is email@example.com.
If the whole consignment turns out bad, we replace it. For handful of fruits, we will send you discount codes of the value of the bad fruits, which you can use on your next order.
*Please note that Alphonso Mangoes are not supposed to kept in the refrigerator for reasons as explained here http://www.spotlessfruits.com/alphonso-mangoes-goes-bad-in-the-fridge/. Mangoes will go bad if kept in the refrigerator and we will not be liable for refunds or replacements if you keep the mangoes in the refrigerator and they go bad.
In the event we are not able to provide you a replacement, for reasons including but not limited to season-ending, not enough production, lack of service of courier, etc, we will issue you refunds for the amount you have paid us. Wherever possible, the refund will be given to the same payment source where the payment was made from. If that is not possible, a refund will be issued to a bank account, the details of which will be asked from the email id which was used to place the order. The refunds will be remitted to your accounts within 21 working days.
You are aware that the fruits that we send to you are sent by third party courier companies and they are the best in their work, Fedex for instance, which we use. You are aware that when we dispatch fruits to you, they go out of our control. You understand that they should reach you as soon as possible for them to remain their best. We send you a ‘shipped’ update to as soon as they are taken over by the courier company and it is your responsibility to ensure that you or someone will be there at the given address to receive the box. This replacement and refunds will not hold good in the case that they have reached your premises, but the delivery to you is delayed because you were unavailable, did not answer the call, or requested a later date for delivery. You understand that fruits are perishables and delaying delivery is likely to hasten their perishability. Hence, we will not be liable to give any replacement or refund in such a case when the status checks with the courier company shows that later delivery was requested. As explained above, fruits have a very short shelf life, and should be consumed in that time frame. We are not liable for any requests for refunds and replacements, after the end of shelf life.
