Sellers on Vinterior have 72 hours to review your order and confirm the item's availability and shipping cost. This is because every item Vinterior is unique, and our dealers sell via different marketplaces.
If a seller did not manage to confirm your order within the allotted time, you would receive an email from Vinterior stating that your order was auto-cancelled and that you have been refunded for your order.
Why would a seller not confirm an order?
Vinterior allows sellers 72 hours to confirm their sales so that they can check the item's availability and get a delivery quote. This is because sellers only receive your delivery address once your order is placed (unless you speak with them before placing your order).
Many of our sellers are independent businesses who must get in touch with their local courier to arrange a suitable quote for your order.
While sellers have an active account on Vinterior, they can sometimes not be present to confirm an order. Here are some of the following reasons they can't confirm an order;
- Personal circumstances.
- Temporary closure (Covid-19).
- The seller could not find a delivery quote or working courier in time.
- The seller was not available to confirm the order over the weekend.
- The seller was verifying the item's availability.
