Although Kaashmira is not directly involved in a transaction between a buyer and a seller, we provide the support in the unlikely event that your order does not go as expected. By contacting Kaashmira’s customer service, you understand that Kaashmira may use your personal information for the purpose of resolving disputes with other members. You can contact Kaashmira, to come to a resolution with the seller in the event of a non-delivery or if an item you receive is not as described in the listing.

Non-Delivery

A non-delivery occurs when a buyer places an order but does not receive the item. The following are examples of non-delivery cases:

1.There is no proof that the item was dispatched to the buyer.

2.An item was not sent to the address provided on Kaashmira.

Not as Described

An item is not as described if the buyer can demonstrate that it is significantly different from the seller’s listing description or photos. Here are a few examples of not as described cases:

1.The item received is a different colour.

2.The item has a different design or material.

3.The seller failed to disclose that an item is damaged

4.The buyer received the incorrect quantity of items (e.g., the buyer purchased three items but only received two).

5.The item was advertised as authentic but is not authentic.

6.The condition of the item is misrepresented (e.g., the item is described as new but is used).

2.The item(s) are rendered useless after that date.

3.The seller did not dispatch the item(s) according to their processing time or the date agreed upon in Conversations through Kaashmira
