When an item is purchased through HopUp the buyer and seller are eligible for protection. Items offering purchase protection show a blue banner "This item is covered by Payment Protection".
*Note: If you want to purchase an item that does not offer protection, it's ok to ask a seller to re-list their item and offer purchase protection.
How it works
If a seller fails to ship within 5 days of purchase, the buyer is issued a full refund and the sale is cancelled. No questions asked.
A seller is only paid when 3 days has passed since delivery of their sold item or when the buyer writes a review, completing the transaction.
Any issues with an item upon delivery are covered under the following terms.
*Please note that, unless otherwise stated, the buyer is responsible for covering any shipping fees when returning an item that has been covered under Purchase Protection.

How to use it

- If the seller does not respond or you are unable to come to a resolution with the seller, contact us.
