The packaging material will be discussed with the customer in advance. The costs of the packaging material are not included in the FBM order shipping costs.

The warehouse is insured and theft-proof: it has steel doors, an alarm system and video surveillance cameras. All cases where a damage of goods is caused due to the fault of our company will be discussed individually. The goods cannot be lost due to the fault of our company, because we do not work with the transportation of goods.

The delivery of orders by a certain date is available at extra costs. The internal delivery of parcels usually takes 1-2 days (within Germany, excluding national holidays). Unfortunately, an express delivery by a certain date is currently not possible. The delivery of orders in other countries should be arranged individually with the Prep Center of the respective country.

Orders from a client to the Prep Center are transferred as follows:

● Connection to marketplaces

● via API

● Manual import

Orders in status 1-3 are not visible to the Prep Center. Only after the order changes to status 3 - paid, Ysell will send the order to the Prep Center. At the Prep Center, the program checks the availability of goods, reserves them, and the order automatically becomes status 5.1. Orders in this status are visible to the Prep Center. Learn more about order status here.

Yes, we arrange deliveries worldwide.

The delivery price is calculated as follows:

- FBM Shipment (order processing)

- FBM Shipment (the costs of each unit in the order)

- Package costs (carton costs, if needed - additional packaging materials calculated individually).

- Delivery costs (please contact the support service)

Example for Germany:

- FBM-Shipment (order processing) = 1 €

- FBM-Shipment (the costs of each unit in the order)= 0.5 €

Package costs = 0.15 €

Delivery costs within Germany with DHL (weight under 1 Kg)= 4 €

1 + 0.5×2 + 0.15 + 4 = 6.15 €

The parcel will be sent back to the shipper automatically (the return costs depend on the supplier tariff in the relevant country).

In order to find undelivered or lost goods, please contact the delivery service by phone. You will find the number on the website of the delivery service. Our company is not responsible for the activity of the delivery service, we just send your goods through them. If you couldn't solve your problem yourself, you can use our support chat. You will find the support chat below on this page. Your request will be processed by our delivery service specialist. Our specialist will ask you to fill in a form and to send it back to him. When that does happen, we will start the search for your goods and will contact the delivery service for this purpose. Thus, you will save your time and your request will be processed quickly.
