ALL ABOUT SHOPPING, DELIVERIES, RETURNS

Get helpful tips and guidance on everything relating to U and I drinks. Read our policies and find answers to common questions here:

How do you source products

We source our drinks collections from all over the world and focus on bringing unusual and rare items to market for your satisfaction. We work directly with local suppliers and industries to support their businesses accessing a global market and bringing a piece of their world into ours! 

When do you get new products

We are adding new products to our range all the time. Typically we add several new lines each month. So if you haven’t seen something you like yet, keep visiting as you are sure to find something.

Which payment methods are accepted?

At Ineza we accept all forms of major credit and debit cards through PayPal, who provide our secure payment engine for processing all purchases. If you don’t have a PayPal account, don’t worry as you can pay without an account using your card, or you can simply and quickly create an account

We expect to provide other payment methods soon.

When will my order be shipped?

We endeavor to ship all orders the same day you order, but in most cases orders will be dispatched the day after you order and are delivered within 3 business days. Occasionally this can take up to 5 working days. Express shipping is available if you need the item a little quicker. 

How much is shipping?

We ship UK-wide for free when you spend over £40 on a single order with us. If you do not meet this threshold, the flat fee for worldwide shipping depends on the weight of your order and this will be calculated at checkout automatically.

0-2Kg = £3.95

2+Kg = 5.95

What if I need to change my shipping address?

Please contact us immediately on info@uandidrinks.co.uk if you need to adjust your delivery address. We cannot always make this change, so the sooner you let us know the better.

How can i track my order?

If you want to know the current status of your order please contact us directly. We are working on implementing a tracking system so you can do this from the comfort of your own home and this information will be updated once that is available

Can I get same day delivery?

At the moment we are unable to offer same-day delivery. However, you will find next day options available at checkout depending on your product selection and the time of day you order. In most cases, items will be delivered ahead of the schedule we have indicated.

What is your returns and exchanges policy?

You can return a product to us at any time within the 14 day returns period. If you wish to exchange for something else, please let us know straight away. Items must be returned in the same new condition they were dispatched in and with all tags and packaging undamaged. Please read our full policy for more details.

How do i return an item?

If you are not happy with your purchase for any reason, you can return it to us within 14 days and receive a full refund once we have received the item(s) and verified they are not damaged or used. Please write to us on info@uandidrinks.co.uk if you wish to return something, forwarding your email confirmation from the original order and explaining your reasons for return.

How will I receive my refund?

Once authorised, you will be refunded in full using the payment method you selected when you purchased from us. It is not possible to change the refund method. You may also choose to have a store credit if you are looking to purchase again. Refunds to your payment method will take up to 7 business days to arrive.

Lost Items Policy

Packages presumed to be lost

  • Order issues for packages presumed to be lost by the carrier (where the status is not “delivered”) must be filed no sooner than 7 days after the last tracking update for United States domestic shipments (20 days for international shipments, including Canada unless a Canadian merchant is shipping within Canada in which case the 7 day domestic shipment timeline applies) and within 30 days from the last checkpoint.

Invalid address or delivery barriers

  • Sometimes carriers cannot deliver the customer’s package due to an invalid address or other unexpected delivery barriers. At this point, the carrier might return the package to the sender/retailer. The customer’s package is not actually lost, thus Route does not cover this. In instances where the item is being returned to the sender and is reusable, customers will be referred to the retailer.
  • The exception is retailers that ship perishable items (e.g. food, a mattress that cannot be reused).

Only part of the order delivered

  • If the customer ordered several items in one package but only part of the order arrived and there is no evidence of tampering, Route does not cover the order issue. The customer will be referred to the retailer. 
  • If a single order is being shipped in multiple packages and one package does not arrive, Route will cover the order issue and reorder or refund the value of the undelivered package.
  • If the retailer forgets to ship an item from the customer’s order, the customer needs to reach out to the retailer to have the missing items fulfilled.

Packages labeled “return to sender”

  • Route does not cover packages labeled return to sender because the order has been sent back to the retailer. Items are returned to sender when a customer provides an invalid or undeliverable address or refuses a delivery. 
  • At our discretion, we may cover the order issue if the returned item is perishable or if the retailer is unable to reuse it.*
  • Route covers the customer’s order if the package gets lost in-transit back to the sender.*

*Please note: Route Package Protection timeframes for filing apply.

Order stuck in customs

  • Route cannot cover when a customer’s order is stuck in international borders/customs.
  • The customer’s next step is to pay the customs fees in order to receive the package.
  • If Route replaces something the customer has already paid customs on, under Route’s discretion, Route can approve and pay customs the second time.

Order marked as unfulfilled or unshipped

  • If the customer’s order is marked as unfulfilled or unshipped, the order hasn’t been fulfilled yet by the retailer (retailer could be low on inventory of the items, internal delays with the fulfillment center, etc.).
  • Route does not control how quickly the retailer ships the customer’s order. Route Package Protection is not yet in action because the order has not shipped.

Order issue filed too soon

  • If the customer is filing an order issue the same day that the package was marked as delivered, at our discretion Route may ask you to wait 5 business days. Carriers (FedEx, USPS, UPS, DHL, etc.) sometimes prematurely mark the package as delivered when it’s still in transit.

 

Stolen Items Policy

Delivered but missing package

At our discretion, Route requires a police report when the customer’s package is marked as delivered.

  1. Customer files the police report and includes an explanation that Route is a package protection company that has protected the customer’s package that has been stolen. To process the order issue with Route, Route is requiring a police report.
  2. Send Route the police report PDF & number in the order issue.

Upon request, Route can require additional documentation (e.g. proof of identity, address, etc.).

Note: Depending upon the jurisdiction, a false police report may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony

**Order issues for packages marked “delivered” yet not received are considered by Route as stolen and must be filed 5 days after “delivery date” but no longer than 15 days to ensure it was not misdelivered or easily found around the premises.

Filing a police report

  • On orders over $100, Route requires evidence of the police report
  • Customer files the police report and includes an explanation that Route is a package protection company that has protected the customer’s package that has been stolen. To process the order issue with Route, Route is requiring a police report. Once filed, the customer sends Route the police report PDF & number in the order issue.
  • Upon request, Route can require additional documentation (e.g. proof of identity, address, etc.).

Delivered to wrong address

  • If the customer input the correct address at checkout and the package was delivered to the wrong address, Route considers this as stolen and we will replace the order on behalf of the customer.
Damaged Items Policy

Broken items

  • If the customer received a broken item and needs to dispose of it (i.e. shattered glass), the customer needs to check their city ordinances and dispose of it properly.
  • The customer does not need to ship it back to the retailer (unless the retailer indicates otherwise).

Damaged items

  • A damaged item is considered to be a broken product that is unusable, clearly fractured, shattered, bent (if not bendable), crushed, etc.
  • Route does not cover cosmetic damage (scratches, dents, etc.), manufacturing damages, packaging errors, or unsealed items. At our discretion, we may offer a 15-30% refund depending on the severity of the cosmetic damage.

  • Route requires further evidence of the customer’s damaged item (i.e. more photos, videos, etc.).

Subscription items

  • For existing subscriptions where your customers have purchased Route Package Protection, if any of your customer’s items in the subscription were lost, stolen, or damaged in transit and can be purchased individually, Route will reorder them. If the items cannot be purchased, then Route will refund the items.
  • Route cannot reorder and create an entirely new subscription because Route would be paying for the customer’s monthly subscription.

Customized items

  • Route cannot reorder customized items for the customer because of the additional liability of ordering the customer’s custom item incorrectly. Route can offer a refund instead.

Out of stock

  • Route doesn’t have visibility to the retailer’s inventory or when they will have the customer’s item back in stock.
  • Route can offer the customer a refund for the item that is out of stock. The customer can always use that refund to order the item when it’s back in stock.
General Policy

Input wrong address

  • If the customer entered the wrong address at the time of order, Route does not cover this.
  • The customer needs to reach out to the retailer to remedy the incorrect address.

Quality control

  • If the customer is unsatisfied with their product, Route is not a product replacement plan and the order issue cannot be approved.
  • The customer needs to reach out to the retailer. This request may be covered under the retailer’s return policy.

Too late to file

  • Route can action an order issue that is filed within the bounds of our domestic/international timeline policy. If an order issue is filed outside of this timeline, Route will deny the order issue according to these policies:
    • Order issues for packages marked “delivered” yet not received and where there is no evidence of “porch piracy” must be made 5 days after “delivery date” but no longer than 15 days to ensure it was not misdelivered or easily found around the premises.”
    • Order issues for packages presumed to be lost by the carrier (where the status is not “delivered”) must be filed no sooner than 7 days after the scheduled delivery date for United States domestic shipments (20 days for international shipments, including Canada unless a Canadian merchant is shipping within Canada in which case the 7 day domestic shipment timeline applies) and within 30 days from the last checkpoint.

Expedited shipping hasn’t arrived 

  • If the customer’s package is delayed for whatever reason, Route will not cover it.
  • Carriers update their website with expected delays due to inclement weather or other barriers to expected delivery.
  • If the customer paid for expedited shipping but the package arrives outside of the expected window, Route will not cover it.

Payment installment companies

  • For payment installments (Sezzle, Afterpay, etc.), it is the customer’s responsibility to pay the payment installment company directly.
  • Once Route refunds the customer for their order, the customer must pay their installments to the payment installment company directly.

No tracking information

  • Route reserves the right to deny order issues where no tracking number/information is available. In these instances, Route will reach out to the retailer to see if one can be provided.

Package in Pre-Shipment

  • Route reserves the right to deny order issues where package tracking is marked as “pre-shipment”.

Non-sanctioned shipping address

  • Route is based in the United States of America. Due to shipping policies in the US, Route will not cover order issues for items shipped to countries that are not sanctioned by the US. List available here

Closed order issues

  • If a customer does not respond within 5 days, Route will automatically close the order issues. Customers can open the order issues back up by responding to the original thread.

Didn’t want Route

  • If the customer’s package has not shipped, Route can refund the Route premium.
  • If the item has shipped, Route is already protecting the package and cannot refund the customer.

Checkout requires ID verification

  • Route doesn’t upload our employee’s proof of ID to replace the customer’s order.
  • If the customer ordered from a store that requires the extra ID verification step, Route can offer the customer a refund instead to protect each party’s identity.
