How can I report an issue about my order?

It isn’t unusual to experience issues with your orders. Listed here are some common issues that our buyers report.

To sort these out faster, we’ve built the Dashboard Issue Resolution feature -- an automated issue reporting tool that allows you to submit your order-related issues quickly and easily from your dashboard.

You can activate this feature by clicking on your order’s “I need help” link, as shown below: 


NOTE: “I need help” only applies to confirmed and back-dated orders. This feature is not available for pending orders.
