Buyer Protection Policy
As a buyer on our Marketplace, there may be times when a purchased item does not meet your expectations. We want you to know eCampus.com is here to help when this happens and we have put in place a Buyer Protection Policy to protect you as a buyer.
Here's what you should expect when purchasing from the Marketplace:
- From the date of your order, the seller has five (5) business days to confirm your order.
- You'll receive a ship confirmation email when the seller ships your order. Tracking information along with the seller's contact information will be provided in that email and will also be available in your eCampus.com account.
- If you have not received a ship confirmation email within five (5) business days your order will automatically be cancelled by eCampus.com and you will be issued a full refund back to your original form of payment within 5-7 business days.

Issues Covered Under the Buyer Protection Policy
Your order was cancelled.
There are two possible reasons why your order was cancelled:

Cancelled orders are refunded back to the original method of payment used within 5-7 business days.
Tracking information is missing or is incorrect.
If the tracking information is missing or incorrect, you should contact the seller and ask them to provide the tracking information for your order. If the seller doesn't respond to your email, please contact us at email@example.com and we will help to resolve your issue.
