  1. Do you use software to process reimbursements?

We only use software for analysis, never for case management. This is very important. Amazon does not want to be bombarded with cases, nor does Amazon want sellers to file excessive cases. It is critical to consider only valid claims and to do so patiently, professionally, manually and with Amazon’s terms of use in mind. We ensure that our procedures adhere to the Amazon Reimbursement Policy. In addition, we repeat our analysis manually.

You may cancel anytime on Shopkeeper using the Accounts page. Cancellation is automated and immediate.

We will charge at the end of each 2-week period, when you receive a detailed summary report listing all the filed and successful reimbursement cases.
