Shipping/Quality Policy

A. In the case of standard delivery and express delivery, delivery is judged to be complete at the time of the first delivery attempt regardless of receipt. And delivery to an access point or kiosk is judged to be completed at the time the courier arrives at the corresponding location. In other words, the delivery completion date as defined by the shipping/quality policy may differ from the date the customer receives the actual product ( This has been added because the actual product receipt date may be delayed due to internal regulations of dormitories and apartments )

B. If delivery is delayed or failed due to a mistake on the part of the customer, ( e.g., entering an incorrect address – entering the recipient’s name in non Latin characters such as Korean – c/o not entered ) the compensation processing according to the shipping/quality policy is impossible. This means that the seller does not compensate for the shipping and additional costs involved in reshipment.

C. Even though the address and name were written correctly and the name tag was clearly marked on the front door of the building, if the delivery failed for an unclear reason ( returned to the seller ), or it was delivered after the normal delivery date due to re-delivery, or if the package is lost, we will file a claim on behalf of the customer to the carrier ( Depending on the situation, photos of the front door and name tag may be required )

D. Product damage is determined by the condition of the contents, not the condition of the packaging container. The term “partial damage” described in the shipping/quality policy refers to the case where a part of the contents leaves the packaging container, and the term “complete damage” refers to the case where more than 50% of the contents leave the packaging container.

E. In principle, refrigerated/frozen products are shipped only when express delivery is selected, and refrigerated/frozen packages are purchased. Therefore, when the product temperature maintenance fails, the compensation method varies depending on the situation.

F. For shipments outside Germany where the delivery date is not clear, compensation can only be made for “product damage” situations.

G. In situations where both refund/point accumulation processing is possible according to the shipping/quality policy, if you select point accumulation processing, an additional 2% of the compensation amount will be accumulated.

H. In the event of a problem due to natural disasters ( e.g. heavy rain, heavy snow, flood, typhoon, etc. ), compensation cannot be processed for reasons such as delay in delivery excluding loss/damage.

I. Since our company sells food, all claims can only be processed within a week from the time of delivery.
