Rules to remember

After placing the order on Amazon

The estimated delivery date (also known as ETA) must be specified in your Purse order, please make sure to attach it to your order with the instructions in step 8.
Additionally, you will have to use our bookmarklet tool to get the tracking number from the Amazon tracking page of your order. The bookmarklet will grab and automatically upload the tracking number to the corresponding Purse order. Using the bookmarklet tool is safe and secure, it doesn't perform any actions in your Amazon account, it simply pulls the tracking number hidden in the Amazon tracking page.

Time Limits and order processing

In average, Amazon orders take 2 business days to ship, our support team will reach out to you if it has been 3 or more days without shipping updates. Please ensure to stay on top of your order and upload the tracking number as soon as possible. If no shipping info is available by the time the support team contacts you, simply let us know in the order chat. Unresponsive earners who don't provide accurate information about the status of the order might be suspended from Purse, and the order cancelled.

Similarly, if we detect that the order has been shipped, and no tracking information has been uploaded, the order will not be completed. Earners have up to 5 days after the order is detected as shipped to provide tracking information before being issued a final cancelation warning. To stop the cancelation countdown, simply upload the tracking number and write a message in the order chat.

After order delivery

Once the order has been delivered, the shopper will receive a notification, they will have up to 48 hours after the delivery to check it and confirm the order. Make sure to upload the tracking information as soon as it is available to you. It is also important to mark the orders as gifts during the checkout process, otherwise, shoppers won't be able to return orders on their own and we will have to contact you to provide a return label.

All Earners must provide a copy of the official Amazon purchase invoice if requested by support, there are no exceptions. To know more about how to be a good earner and get better deals, please check out our How to Be a Good Earner article in our support center.

Common issues and how to solve them

The Items are not available in the Wish List page (add-to-cart button is missing): Amazon dynamically changes product availability depending on the default address from your account (not the Wish List shipping address), so make sure you have a US shipping address selected for your account or just put a zip code like 33178 in there.

Select the correct delivery location

After entering the zip code or US shipping address the items will become available, if they don't, then it's because the items are really out of stock, in that case, please cancel the Purse order. If the add-to-cart button is available for each item, you can go ahead and follow the checkout process. Make sure you select the Gift Registry's (wish list) address, not your own address.
