Your satisfaction is our business creed; we focus most of our business process in making sure your shopping experience is one you will always remember with smile on your face.

Our website is a multi-merchant platform that brings merchants from different locations to offer the best product value for you to choose from.

Buying Products from Merchants on Bargain Master:

All products that have “Add to Cart, Buy Now, or Shop Now” button are from Bargain Master verified merchants.

Merchants with the B-verified Seal are merchants that have gone through our verification process. This means that our verification team has visited the physical location of the merchant, and the business owner/owners have provided valid identification information (International passport, driver’s license and registered business information if available) to us for documentation.

The verified merchants are under strict agreement to sell only quality products at a fair price to you on our website.

Merchants without the B-verified seal are merchants that listed their product on our website but have not participated in our verification process.  These merchants can’t sell on our website unless they go through the verification process. There listed products will not have the “Add to Cart, Buy Now, or Shop Now” button, therefore you can’t buy products from them.

You are advised to buy only from verified merchants to benefit from our “Buyer Protection” solution using the customer resolution center.

Checkout and Payment:

Most Bargain MasterSales go smoothly, but if there’s a problem with a purchase, there is the Bargain MasterReturn and Refund policy. With the return and refund policy, we guarantee that buyers receive the item they ordered, or get their money back.

When you pay for an item sold by a merchant on Bargain Master the money doesn’t go to the merchant immediately, the money will be on transit at the Bargain Master bank account waiting for successful transactionbefore the merchant gets the money you paid for the product.

Successful transaction means a dispute free transaction:

  • Product is confirmed delivered in good condition
  • Product received is as described on the product page
  • Buyer didn’t report any issue after 12 hours of receiving the ordered product

Bargain Master will transfer the product payment to merchants is the above situation is met. 

Dispute resolution:

To resolve issues quickly, a buyer can use our dispute resolution center to get an issue resolved; so far it was reported before 12 hours after the buyer received the product.

Buyers can use the Bargain Master customer resolution center when:

  • An item isn’t received
  • An item received doesn’t match the listing description

Bargain Master will work with the merchant to try and resolve the dispute and maybe get the merchant to replace the item, or issue a refund to the buyer.

Late Report

  • When you contact Bargain Master after 12 hours of receiving the product.
  • When you contact Bargain Master for buyer remorse
  • The product has manufacturer money back guarantee for a specific period.

Bargain Master may attempt to resolve disputes that have fallen into the Late Report category, but these disputes will not be treated as a priority case and may not be attended to after reviewing it.

For Manufacturer Money Back Guarantee you should contact the manufacturer using the contact information on the product package or their contact card.

Bargain Master will contact the merchant to resolve the issue or consideraccepting a return or offering a replacement and Bargain Master may issue a refund. 

We review the item description and any other information about the item that the buyer and merchant provide to determine the best resolution method.

When an item is returned to the seller

  • The buyer must return the item in the same condition in which it was received.
  • The merchant is required to accept the return at the same location specified in the merchants account or on product description page. 
  • If the cost of return is not covered by the manufacturer or the merchant in accordance with their product money back guarantee policy, we may decide to cover return postage costs in some cases. If the case is decided on the merchants favor but you still need to return the product for replacement, the buyer has to cover the return shipping cost.
  • The seller pays for any customs charges on the returned item.

After confirming that the item was returned to the merchant, we refund the full cost of the item and original postage cost via GTPAY to the card you paid with.

When an item isn’t returned to the merchant

In some cases, we may not require that an item be returned to the merchant and refund the buyer if, for example:

  • The item location was misrepresented.
  • It’s hazardous to post the item back.
  • The merchant doesn’t fulfill the terms of the our Return and Refund policy

Alternatively, with the buyer’s consent, we may give a partial refund to cover differences between how the item was described in the product description page and the actual item that was received. When given a partial refund, a buyer isn’t asked to return the item to the merchant. The merchant will receive whatever remains from the initial payment on the item as agreed during dispute resolution.

Counterfeit items

If a buyer suspects that an item is counterfeit and there are strong indicators that the item is counterfeit, the buyer isn’t required to return the item to the merchant. The buyer agrees to cooperate with us to ensure the proper disposal of the item. In such cases, we refund the buyer for the full cost of the item and original shipping cost, and the merchant reimburses us for the shipping cost refund. The buyer may not sell the item on Bargain Master Nigeria website or elsewhere.
