Here are some guidelines for submitting supporting documents:

  1. Follow the file size limit: 10 MB per photo, 30 MB (up to 1 min) per video
  2. Provide good quality evidence that is clearly visible (not blurry/pixelated)
  3. Provide close-up shots to show defects clearly for damaged products
  4. Uploading video evidence is highly recommended for returns of faulty products
  5. Provide chat history or other evidence showing prior negotiation with seller, if applicable

 

⚠️ Note

  1. For non-receipt cases, buyers are not required to provide any documents. Shopee will check with the seller and logistics partner to investigate the issue. 
  2. If the seller can provide valid proof of shipment or the item is still in transit, the return/refund request will be rejected. If the item is lost in transit, the buyer will be refunded.
