What to do & expect after purchase.

Congrats on making a purchase through the Sports Wax Promotions platform! Here’s what you should do next and what to expect in return:

We are strictly a peer-to-peer marketplace and never touch inventory and or get involved in the fulfillment process in any way therefore is not responsible for any lost, stolen, or damaged items. That said as all payments on the platform are processed through PayPal Marketplace, buyers are protected by PayPal’s Purchase Protection. As such we strongly urge all buyers to carefully review the relevant guidelines and requirements dictated by PayPal in their user agreement under the section called PayPal’s Purchase Protection Program here.


3. After remitting payment, buyers should keep in mind that sellers are required to ship and upload tracking directly into the platform within 3 business days (Saturday and Sunday are not considered business days and therefore do not count). Please remember all sellers must apply, go through screening, and be approved. This said please give these vetted sellers the allotted time before sending emails for updates, tracking, and so forth. If 3 business days pass and tracking has not been provided, buyers should then contact the seller for an update. If a buyer is unable to reach a particular seller (assuming the 3 business days have already passed) the buyer should then contact support and a team member will help the buyer contact the seller in question.
