IT’S CRITICAL TO PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST FRAUD.
If something looks too good to be true, it probably is. While none of the warning signs below necessarily mean an order is fraudulent, it’s important to be on the lookout for the following:
The shipping address is a high-risk location. These are places well-known for fraud. Search online to find a list of high-risk countries.
The order is larger than normal. Use caution if you receive an order from a new customer that is larger than a typical order, and if it’s a product in high demand (e.g., electronics).
The customer asks to change shipping address after paying. Make sure the address change makes sense. Fraudsters initially enter valid addresses so fraud systems won’t catch them. Then, they contact you to change the address.
There’s an abnormal number of international orders within a short time. For example: you receive 50 orders from customers outside the US within a few days, but you normally receive just 2 international orders per month.
There’s an abnormal number of orders at an unusual time of day. For example: you receive 10 orders from US-based customers, all around 3:00 a.m. on the same day.
Several orders from different customers have the same shipping address.Fraudsters often make orders from several stolen credit cards, then have the orders shipped to one address.
You receive multiple orders from the same account around the same time. Low-priced orders normally receive less scrutiny than larger ones. Fraudsters may place smaller, separate orders to avoid detection.
A customers overpay. Here’s a common scam: a fraudster will overpay for an order and then ask for the extra money to be returned through a wire transfer, or to their preferred shipping company. Don’t fall for it. If someone overpays you, send the extra money back through Stripe.
An order consists of multiple requests for the same item. For example: a customer orders 50 pairs of the same shoe in various sizes. Why would a customer need 50 pairs of the same shoe? Ask yourself if the quantity ordered of the same product makes sense.
A customer requests rush or overnight shipping. A done deal is harder to spot or correct. That’s why fraudsters sometimes choose to receive merchandise quickly, regardless of the cost.
A customer uses a suspicious email address. Keep an eye out for email addresses that seem unusual, like “email@example.com,” or undeliverable emails. Legitimate customers are more likely to use email addresses that contain their name.
An order has a suspicious shipping address. Before shipping an expensive order, make sure you know where it’s being shipped. Criminals may ship orders to freight forwarders, shipping companies, P.O. boxes, or vacant properties to remain anonymous.

MY BUYER WAS BANNED FOR FILING CHARGEBACKS/UNAUTHORIZED PURCHASES, WHAT DO I DO NOW?
If you have yet to ship the item, please do not ship it. You should refund the buyer by clicking on the Stripe transaction and then the “Refund” prompt. After this is complete, please follow the fee refund request prompt on the original listing page in order to process the fee refund. We cannot complete the fee refund until the refund to the buyer is marked as “Completed”, which may take 24 to 48 hours.
If the item has already shipped, please try to contact your postal service to have the parcel rerouted back to you. If you’re unable to reroute it and a case is opened, please be sure to provide Stripe with all relevant information, including the listing link and tracking information, to let them know that it was legitimate purchase. Provide them as much information as possible, then let us know how it goes.
