When a dispute arises between buyers and sellers, buyers should first contact sellers directly to try to find a solution. If the parties cannot resolve their dispute, at Mandi Bazaar, has a Dispute Resolution process in order to resolve disputes between Buyers and Sellers.
Dispute Resolution Process:
If the buyer and the Seller are unable to come to an agreement, you can escalate the Dispute to a Claim within 10 Days after opening the Dispute.

During the Claim process, Mandi Bazaar may require you to provide documentation to support your position.
Once a Dispute has been escalated to a Claim, Mandi Bazaar will make a final decision in favor of the buyer or the Seller. You may be asked to provide receipts, third party evaluations, police reports, or anything else that Mandi Bazaar specifies. Mandi Bazaar retains full discretion to make a final decision in favor of the buyer or the Seller.

Mandi Bazaar will generally require the buyer to ship an item that the buyer claims is for Significantly Not as Described back to the Seller (at the buyer’s expense), and Mandi Bazaar will generally require a Seller to accept the item back and refund the buyer the full purchase price plus original shipping costs. In the event a Seller loses a Claim, the Seller will not receive a refund on his or her Mandi Bazaar fees associated with the transaction. If you are a Seller and you lose a Significantly Not as Described Claim because the item you sold is counterfeit, you will be required to provide a full refund to the buyer and you will not receive the item back.

When packing your item, keep these things in mind:
Choose a box that's slightly larger than the item you're sending so you can cushion the item with packing material on all sides. Make sure your box is in good condition and sturdy enough to survive the trip.
Pack the item with bubble wrap, peanuts, foam, or paper so there's no room for your item to move around in the package.
Tip: If you're shipping very fragile items, like glass bottle items etc, we strongly recommend you use something more secure than paper to pack your items.
