What is the A-to-z Guarantee program?

Swoop has built a base of thousands of satisfied customers by being responsive to their concerns and
acting quickly to resolve problems. We extend this valuable customer trust to vendors through the
A-to-z Guarantee program.

The A-to-z Guarantee Program is for situations where a customer never received a product or received a
product that is materially different from what was ordered or expected. We ask customers to first
contact the seller when they have a problem. If the seller fails to resolve the problem, the customer can

file an A-to-z claim. When Swoop receives the claim, we send the seller an automated email detailing
the claim and requesting basic information from the seller about the order and the fulfillment process.
Swoop will then determine how the claim will be settled, which may include but isn't limited to
reimbursement of the order to the customer, at the seller's expense.
