How your performance is calculated

Your seller performance level is calculated by looking at your transaction incident rate, non-seller resolution cases, late shipments, and tracking validation. Transaction incident rates and cases closed without seller resolution One of the key seller performance measures is your transaction incident rate. An incident is added to your account if:

If there is a dispute that arises from a transaction, we recommend that the seller contact the buyer and resolve the dispute to the satisfaction of both. You can resolve the issue with the buyer by issuing a refund or accepting a return so the request isn't concluded as the seller's fault. In the event we are asked to resolve the dispute, buyer and sea dispute resolution is opend we're asked to step in and help with a Kuubwa Money Back Guarantee case, you can resolve the issue with the buyer by issuing a refund or accepting a return so the request isn't concluded as the seller's fault. If the seller is found to be responsible for the issue, this will result in what we call a “case closed without seller resolution.” We count these in your transaction incident rate and as a percentage of your transactions closed without you resolving them.

Cases to avoid:

Late shipments

To provide your buyers with great service, it's important to make sure you send your items on time. Late shipments are determined by the percentage of transactions that you sent after the handling time stated in your listing or that were not delivered by the estimated delivery date.
