Shop Policies

Setting clear buyer expectations and then meeting or exceeding them is a great way to make your buyer happy and ensure a smooth transaction.  Some of the simplest things you can do are to provide accurate and consistent details about your item and to be clear and specific about the shipping cost, handling time, return policy, terms and conditions of the sale.

Here is an example of a shop policy.  You can edit, customize it to use for your shop.
