- Accuracy of Provided Information: ShipGooder is not responsible for information submitted by Users or Account holders on the ShipGooder website or within the use of ShipGooder Services. Users or Account holders are responsible for the accuracy of the information that is used in conjunction with the ShipGooder website and the Services offered. This includes, but is not limited to, information concerning the User and Package Criterion (To, From, Type of Service, Weight, Dimensions, Content, etc.). Neither ORIGIN nor DESTINATION addresses may be altered on prepared labels nor while the shipment is en route to the recipient. Users are solely responsible for the accuracy of the information entered and back-charges will apply if changes are made to the information entered on ShipGooder.com which incur additional charges from the courier. These charges will be immediately due and payable to ShipGooder.com or the Courier direct. The USPS has deployed processing equipment capable of capturing package weight, dimensions and package type for the purpose of verifying that the correct rate has been paid for shipments (Automated Package Verification (APV)). In the event that the USPS rated value is different than what you paid on ShipGooder we will, in accordance with our Terms and Conditions, reach out to you for payment of the additional charges. These charges include using the incorrect packaging for your shipment. If you are using packaging from USPS, the packaging type must match the label service purchased on ShipGooder.com. For example, if you are using a flat rate box and purchased a priority or first class label on ShipGooder.com, you will be billed by USPS for the higher amount and additional charges will apply. YOU MUST USE A PLAIN CORREGATED BOX TO SHIP YOUR ITEMS. Failure to do so will result in additional charges.
- Prohibitive items and Dangerous Goods: It is the User’s responsibility to ensure the items that are being shipped or electronically transferred are of legal content and substance. Users are encouraged to review the Courier’s Terms and Conditions, along with restrictions on items that can be shipped by the Courier (lithium batteries, combustible items, etc), before selecting the Courier on ShipGooder. ShipGooder is not responsible for the contents of the items that are being shipped or electronically transferred. Users are solely responsible for the items they ship and electronically transfer.
- Refunds. Refund requests must be made within one week of purchasing a label. Refund requests that occur after one week from the purchase of a label will not be processed. You will have two options for a refund. Option 1: A 5% processing fee will apply if the refund is made to your credit card or PayPal Account if the request is made 7 days from the purchase date. This 5% processing fee covers the administrative and transaction costs associated with the refund. If the request for refund is made after 7 days, and the label is eligible for refund, a 10% processing and administrative fee will apply. Option 2: A full refund is issued in the form of ShipGooder Credits. These ShipGooder credits will sit in your account for use in re-purchasing your label or for use on future shipment purchases. Upon selecting a method for payment, simply select ShipGooder Credits and you will be able to use the refunded amount for your current shipment. If the refunded amount is not enough to cover your current purchase, you can purchase the difference by purchasing additional ShipGooder credits or by purchasing the difference on your credit card or Paypal account. Carrier regulations may dictate when the refund can be processed by ShipGooder. In some cases, refunds may take up to 2 weeks due to carrier restrictions. In other cases, they can be processed immediately. Disputing a charge with your payment provider is NOT the correct process for getting a refund with ShipGooder. Simply email us at [email protected] and we will be glad to help you. Any disputes with payment providers that are made against ShipGooder will be responded to with evidence supporting the charges and referencing our Term and Conditions.
NOTE: USPS does not allow refunds on First Class Domestic Envelopes. A printed copy must be taken to the post office for a refund from USPS directly.

11. Insurance on Service: ShipGooder does not warrant or provide insurance directly on items being shipped or electronically transmitted. Users are encouraged to review the Courier’s or Insurance provider’s Terms and Conditions along with their insurance coverage, before selection of Courier. If coverage was purchased using a third party insurance provided or courier insurance on ShipGooder, claims associated with the package or electronic transmission must be made with that insurance provider and not ShipGooder. ShipGooder is not responsible for any claims or subsequent damages resulting from lost, delayed or damage packages. ShipGooder uses a third-party insurance provider (Transgaurdian), over the $80 (envelope) to $100 (package) insurance limit provided by USPS, to cover packages when additional insurance is purchased on ShipGooder.com. Please note that if you have an insurance claim, you must contact us within 5 days of your shipment date so we can aid in opening your claim with the courier or guiding you on the process. Claims must be filed within 30 days of the shipment date and unless the package is lost, there is no refund on the shipping cost in accordance with the couriers Terms and Conditions. In addition, insurance claims require original receipts of items that were damaged and all packaging must be retained for inspection upon the insurance companies discretion. Original receipts and packaging is a requirement for the insurance claim and the insurance company may require inspection of packaging and damaged goods to validate the claim. Insufficient packaging (box, tape, stuffing, etc.) for the weight and item being shipped is not covered by any insurance provided so it is highly advisable to take a picture of your package before it is shipped or your claim may be denied for insufficient packaging. External packaging must be sufficient for the items being shipped and internal packaging material must protect your items. Your claim can only include items that are listed on your original labels to which you have documentation for. Insurance does not cover delayed packages. Additional information may be required to process your claim. If an insurance claim is denied from the courier or from the third-party insurance provider, ShipGooder.com cannot assist any further. Declaring a value on a shipment does not mean the item is insured. Additional insurance must be selected and paid for in order for the insurance to apply. In the case of Dicom, insurance is currently not available on packages.
12.1 Shipping Issues: Issues arising from delayed, lost or damaged packages must be addressed to the Courier that was selected by the Customer and is not the responsibility of ShipGooder. ShipGooder will not provide refunds for shipments that do not meet service guarantee’s or estimated delivery dates by a courier. We will, however, help you to address your issues with the courier. Some couriers (for example CanPar) will not ship to PO boxes. Although a label may be produced, the shipment may be held as undeliverable to PO boxes. ShipGooder is not responsible for packages that are not picked up by the courier from the customer however we will make every attempt to help our customers resolve issues with the courier. Typical package pickup times by most couriers occur between the times of 9am to 6pm (local time). First Class Envelope services from USPS do not have tracking capabilities. At ShipGooder, our standard envelope size is 0.5 x 10 x 10. We do not facilitate the shipment of small envelopes. ShipGooder is also not responsible for packages that do not have a label, correct label, duplicate labels (labels from other couriers on package), or damage to the label. If a return fee for packages that have issues is charged to ShipGooder, you the customer, are responsible for these fees and the cost of the original shipment. ShipGooder does not pickup or facilitate the shipment of packages, we simply provided discounted labels. If a package is being sent internationally, delays due to customs are not covered under the carriers service guarantees. If a shipment is refused, if additional information is required by the courier from the receiver/shipper (you the customer), or if their are duties/taxes due, these must be addressed by you the customer. If the package is stopped or sent back due to these reasons, a refund cannot be issued. The recent situation revolving around COVID-19 has caused delays for both domestic and international shipments. Please refer to the individual courier’s website for service guarantee disruptions and impacts resulting from COVID-19. Many service guarantees have been adjusted and/or suspended.
12.2 Fraudulent Shipments: If a package is deemed to be fraudulent by ShipGooder, its banking partners or law enforcement, ShipGooder will log this with the appropriate authorities and online sources. Fraudulent shipments will lead to your package being intercepted, without return. Further action will be initiated by ShipGooder with the proper authorities and online sources. Items that are intercepted can be used to recover the cost and time associated with fraudulent transaction. Fraudulent shipments include the incorrect entry of the weight or dimensions on a package where additional fees are to be collected, to which their is a refusal to pay or no response.
12.3 Courier Integration Partnerships and Services: Many couriers have partners with other transportation companies to deliver International packages and domestic packages within certain regions. In the case of USPS, international shipments can be tracked on USPS/ShipGooder up to the point where the package leaves the US, once it leaves, in most cases, you can visit the local post office of the destination country to continue tracking the parcel. Within Canada, Dicom and CanPar often use third party courier’s to deliver the package to their final destination (Loomis, Tiger Courier, Kindersley Transport, etc.) in Eastern and Western destinations.
