Although the sellers on B-Stock strive to provide product as it is described on the auction, despite their best efforts there can be discrepancies. This can happen for any number of reasons, including the volume that a warehouse processes, damage in shipping, or even human error.
There are processes to protect buyers in the case of a major discrepancy. Further information on these is located in the marketplace Terms of Purchase, usually under the "inspection" paragraph. For auctions purchased on B-Stock Supply, your orders may qualify for the Buyer's Protection Program.
The main thing to remember when filing a claim is that there will be a deadline, which will be listed in the Terms of Purchase.
Note: You must file a claim by following the process outlined below. Calling or chatting in to report a discrepancy does not qualify as filing a claim.

The "Report an Issue" button will bring you to this page:
Click "I have issues with the items I receive."

Notate the manifest.
Once the effected product is documented, press "SUBMIT DISPUTE."
A mediation agent will reply to your filed claim within two business days.
