For international orders our our products are shipped F.O.B. our warehouse. Any damage to a package after it leaves our warehouse is the responsibility of the customer.

Loadup will do everything possible to aid in this process, however, our responsibility ceases when the package leave our facility.

12. Charge Back?

A charge back occurs when the credit card holder disputes a charge to their credit card. Typically these are because you don't recognize/remember purchasing anything from LOADUP by the time your statement comes. Unfortunately, a charge back generates a lot of paper work for the all the parties between the credit card holder and us LOADUP. To cover the extra work it takes to process the paper work, the bank charges us a fee of $20, which we need to pass on to the customer. To avoid this, please retain your receipt from the order so you recognize LOADUP on your credit card bill and avoid creating the charge back fee to us.
