Service Level Agreement
BuyNatural aims for 100% accuracy in fulfilling the orders from the Company site. If replacement shipments are required due to an error on the part of BuyNatural, BuyNatural will pay the lesser of the return postage or replacement value of incorrect items shipped, waive all fees on the replacement order, and re-ship the order.
Fragile Wrapping & Breakage
BuyNatural shall maintain a <2% breakage rate due to improper packaging (e.g. products shifting and/or lack of wrapping). Claims for goods damaged during the shipping process will be submitted directly to the carrier and not count towards the allotted breakage rate noted above. It is the Company’s responsibility to mark the SKUs as fragile in BuyNatural communications for breakage to be tracked and accounted for.
Breakage will be evaluated on a monthly basis and the number of orders that exceed the designated allowance will be credited the average replacement cost (i.e. declared value) of the products damaged in excess of 2% and waive all fees on the replacement order as outlined in the “Order Accuracy” section.
Due to good faith receiving (i.e. not counting each individual unit) and relying on supplier information noted on the inbound shipments, BuyNatural cannot ensure accuracy of inventory counts. Although inner cartons are not opened to account for every unit, cases and pallets are counted as an additional level of verification. BuyNatural will limit its liability up to $10/unit for full cartons that are missing after they were received and accounted for in our system. A valid purchase order and proof of payment must be provided before any credit is issued.
For an additional charge, Company can enrol in our “Verified Inventory” program. BuyNatural will then increase the liability up to $250/unit if there is any inventory shrink after the inventory is counted in full upon receiving.
BuyNatural shall receive and put-away inventory within three business days provided its published receiving guidelines have been followed. Receiving larger than thirty (30) cartons, four (4) pallets, and containers must be logged with BuyNatural five (5) business days prior to the inventory arriving to ensure receiving commitments can be met.
If the inventory does not meet these guidelines, BuyNatural at its sole discretion can reject the inventory or the Company’s shipments may be delayed and Company agrees BuyNatural shall not be held liable for any loss or damage as a result of such delay.
