1. Pre-Sale

As a seller, you are responsible for organising a courier on Vinterior.

On your listings, delivery prices can be shown in three ways; 
  • An estimate calculated by Vinterior: This estimate is updated occasionally to maintain accuracy and takes into account item size. Please note, it based in the mainland UK, so the quotes are not always accurate.
  • An estimate set by you as sellers: Update your delivery grid to remove Vinterior's estimated feature. 
  • A Fixed or Free delivery price set by you

In both cases when an estimate is presented the buyer can request a quote for a more accurate price.

2. Placed to Confirmed 

After the buyer has placed their order, you will need to confirm availability and add the shipping costs within 72 hours. Here you will need to input the delivery quote for the order, this will then be charged to the buyer's card unless a pre-sale agreement was made for the delivery to be free or for the item to be collected for example.

Once the order has been confirmed and shipping costs added, the buyer will receive a confirmation email for the order outlining the shipping amount and payment method. 

Shipping costs are charged to the payment card used to make the purchase.
