Terms & Conditions
Shop2Ship offers a beneficial service for individuals, groups, and/or entities requiring reshipping and all reshipping related services. Reshipping is the act of shipping goods, material, or merchandise from a storage facility, warehouse, or local address, to its final destination having already once received the same goods, material, or merchandise from its origin after the initial purchase transaction. Our customers who choose to use our services (hereinafter “Customer” or “Customers”) agree to the Terms and Conditions herein when ordering services through our website or through direct contact with a Shop2Ship agent or authorized representative.
You expressly consent to Shop2Ship performing its services, on your behalf, and hereby appoint as your agent, with full power of attorney, to receive mail at a designated address, and perform all re- shipping and reshipping related services of such received items, including without limitation: preparation for reshipping (packaging or re-packaging, completion of shipping documents, to include packing list(s), certificates of origin, shipping labels, bill of ladings or airway bills), customs clearance, shipment and delivery. As such, Shop2Ship is responsible for preparing items to be shipped, based on the chosen method, manner, and third-party vendor/carrier.
The Customer is responsible for deciding the method, manner, and carrier, i.e., FedEx, UPS, DHL, etc., and Shop2Ship expressly denies involvement in such decision.
Certificate of Origin
The origin of goods is a crucial element in international trade. Customs administrations around the world establish and implement rules of origin, most of which require Certificates of Origin. The Certificate of Origin is a declaration by the shipper certifying the particular country where the shipped item is obtained, produced, manufactured, or processed. You expressly consent to Shop2Ship, as your agent, to prepare and issue Certificates of Origin on your behalf, and consent to the accuracy and validity of such certificate(s).

The Customer shall have 96 hours from the time Shop2Ship confirms communication of the return to provide Shop2Ship with an updated forwarding address, or, if the item was returned after denial into a foreign country, instructions as to the disposition of the returned item. The Customer hereby agrees that any such instructions constitute a new provision of services, and Shop2Ship at its sole discretion may charge a fee for services before completing the instructions (incl. paying the full amount for reshipping the parcel if the customer has under declared the value or misdescribed the items in the consignment).
If, after 96 hours from the time Shop2Ship informs the Customer that its property has been returned, Shop2Ship has not heard from the Customer, Shop2Ship will store the Customer’s property in its own warehouse or other storage facility at a cost of $5 per day for any period of time up to 60 days, and promptly send a notice of abandonment to the Customer’s registered address on file at Shop2Ship. If after 30 plus 10 days from the time Shop2Ship sends a notice of abandonment we have not heard from the Customer, and the Customer’s property is worth more than $500 in the aggregate, Shop2Ship will sell all of Customer’s property through an online auction; or, if the
Customer’s property is less than $500 in the aggregate, Shop2Ship may keep the property or dispose of such in a private sale.
If, after informing the Customer that its property has been returned, and at any time, subject to the storage conditions above, the Customer clearly communicates it no longer wants, nor wishes us to keep, the item, the item will be sold after the passing of 90 days from the original date Shop2Ship received the returned item.
If, after informing the Customer that its property has been returned, and at any time, subject to the storage conditions above, the Customer instructs Shop2Ship to return the item to the merchant/supplier, a return label will be requested (if not a part of the original packing) and the Customer shall pay a $15 administrative fee to Shop2Ship. If the administrative fee is not received immediately, or not later than the time for return to its origin, the item will be sold after the passing of 90 days from the original date Shop2Ship received the returned item.

by or resulting from the actions or omissions of the Customer, its affiliates and/or their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, successors, and assigns.
Loss Of Or Damage To Property
All claims for loss of or damage to property must be made in writing and in accordance with the Terms and Conditions for loss of and damage to property of any third party merchant/supplier and/or carrier responsible for the safe shipping to Shop2Ship and/or the safe shipping to the Customer or Customer’s registered delivery address for reshipment. Shop2Ship expressly rejects responsibility for the condition of Customers’ property except during the period where Shop2Ship services begin to when Shop2Ship services end. For purposes of this provision, and notwithstanding the contractual term herein, Shop2Ship services begin once Shop2Ship accepts the delivery of a Customer’s property at Shop2Ship’s storage facility, warehouse, or designated address pursuant to that Customer’s registered information.
To the extent that Shop2Ship’s performance is precluded or delayed by, or a Customer’s property is lost or damaged as a result of, a “Force Majeure Event,” such performance shall be excused for the time necessitated by such Force Majeure Event, and Shop2Ship shall not be responsible for damage or loss to such property resulting from such Force Majeure Event. “Force Majeure Event” shall mean any event beyond Shop2Ship’s control, including but not limited to: acts of war, terrorist acts, governmental orders relating to the foregoing, the application of security regulations imposed by a government, embargoes, acts of public authorities acting with actual or apparent authority, insurrections, riots, sabotage, natural disasters (including earthquakes or floods), acts of God, labor disputes (including strikes, lockouts, job actions or boycotts), fires, explosions, failure in electrical power, heat, light, air conditioning or communications equipment, or disruptions in air or ground transportation networks.
Claimant and Shop2Ship agree that their sole relationship is a contractual one governed by these Terms & Conditions, as well as any guide for services on Shop2Ship’s website. Any controversy or claim arising out of or related to the provision of such services shall be resolved solely based on these Terms.
Customers agree to not take any legal action against Shop2Ship related to causes arising out of these Terms & Conditions, or otherwise for actions in performance of our Services not covered by these Terms & Conditions, without first (a) sending us, via registered mail or national overnight courier service, a detailed written description of the facts and law out of which such claim arises; and (b) allowing Shop2Ship thirty (30) calendar days to investigate any such claim and offer resolution. All correspondence concerning such dispute must be sent to:
2229 NW 79th Ave
Doral, FL 33122
If, after thirty (30) days of good faith negotiations on the part of both parties, Customers (now “Claimant”) desire to pursue other forms of dispute resolution, Claimant and Shop2Ship agree that, except for disputes that qualify for state courts of limited jurisdiction (such as small claims, justice of the peace, magistrate court, and similar courts with monetary limits on their jurisdictions over civil disputes), any controversy or claim, whether at law or equity, arising out of or related to the provision of services by Shop2Ship, regardless of the date of accrual of such dispute, shall be resolved in its entirety by individual (not class-wide nor collective) binding arbitration.
The arbitration shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (the “Rules”), and judgment on the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The Rules, including instructions for how to initiate arbitration, are available at https://www.adr.org. The arbitrator shall decide all issues of the case on the basis of the applicable law, not equity. If you initiate arbitration, you must serve Shop2Ship’s registered agent for service of process.
Any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class, mass, consolidated or combined actions or arbitrations or proceeding as a private attorney general are not permitted. Claimant and Shop2Ship are each waiving the right to trial by jury. Claimant and Shop2Ship are further giving up the ability to participate in a class, mass, consolidated or combined action or arbitration.
Any arbitration will take place in Broward County, Florida and will be determined by a single arbitrator. Any filing fee or administrative fee required of Claimant by the AAA Rules shall be paid by Claimant to the extent such fee does not exceed the amount of the fee required to commence a similar action in a court that otherwise would have jurisdiction. For all non-frivolous complaints, Shop2Ship will pay the amount of such fee in excess of that amount. The arbitrator will allocate the administrative costs and arbitral fees consistent with the applicable rules of the American Arbitration Association. Reasonable attorney’s fees and expenses will be allocated or awarded only to the extent such allocation or award is available under applicable law. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope, application, and enforceability of the arbitration provision are for a court to decide. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This agreement to arbitrate shall survive termination of the Terms.
In cases where Claimant cannot be present for arbitration in Broward County, Florida, and for all disputes concerning an amount less than fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000.00), the parties shall submit their arguments and evidence to the arbitrator in writing and the arbitrator shall make an award based only on the documents; no hearing will be held unless the arbitrator in his or her discretion, and upon request of a party, decides it is a necessity to require an in-person hearing. For a dispute governed by the AAA Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedures, and concerning an award between fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000.00) and fifty thousand dollars ($50,000.00), inclusive, Shop2Ship shall pay Claimant’s filing fee under the AAA Rules, provided that Claimant agrees that both parties shall submit their arguments and evidence to the arbitrator in writing and that the arbitrator shall make an award based only on the documents, without a hearing being held. Notwithstanding this provision, the parties may agree to proceed with desk arbitration at any time.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the AAA Rules, Shop2Ship and Customer agree that the filing of arbitration, the arbitration proceeding, any documents exchanged or produced during the arbitration proceeding, any briefs or other documents prepared for the arbitration, and the arbitral award shall all be kept fully confidential and shall not be disclosed to any other party, except to the extent necessary to enforce this arbitration provision, arbitral award or other rights of the parties, or as required by law or court order. This confidentiality provision does not foreclose the American Arbitration Association from reporting certain consumer arbitration case information as required by state law.
If any part of this Disputes provision is deemed invalid or ineffective for any reason, this shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remainder of this Disputes provision, including the acceptance of arbitration and any conflicts with the AAA Rules, and the arbitrator shall have the authority to amend any provisions deemed invalid or ineffective to make the same valid and enforceable.
This Agreement is governed by laws of the state of Florida as such laws apply to Agreements entered into and to be performed primarily within the state of Florida, with or without its residents, and without regard to conflict of laws.
Each party hereto agrees to comply with all applicable laws. These Terms and Conditions shall be binding upon the parties hereto, their successors and permitted assigns. Customers may not assign (by operation of law or otherwise) the Agreement created by these Terms and Conditions nor any of its interests, rights or duties hereunder without the express written consent of Shop2Ship.
