Our Purchase Protection Policies are here to provide you with peace of mind whenever you make a purchase through onsite checkout on Bloomire or Blossom. We want you to have a great experience every time, but if you have an issue with your purchase, our Policies are in place to help make things right. For the purposes of this policy, where specified, an individual seller refers to someone selling through a personal profile.
To qualify for Purchase Protection:
Make sure that your purchase is eligible as a Protected Purchase as defined in this policy.
Use onsite checkout on Bloomire or Blossom to complete your payment for the purchase. Purchases made through third-party sites, local pickups, Messenger transactions, or through other messaging services do not qualify. Learn which products have onsite checkout on Bloomire.
Contact the seller first to let them know there's a problem with the purchase. For eligible purchases, if you can't resolve the issue directly with the seller, you may submit a claim through Bloomire or Blossom.
We will review your claim to determine whether it qualifies for Purchase Protection, and issue a refund for the full purchase price of the item and shipping costs if your claim is approved. Decisions are made in our sole discretion.

Refunds & Returns
If you are requesting a refund, remember to contact the seller within the return period specified in the product listing and follow the seller's instructions for returning the delivered item.
If the seller is unresponsive or is not following their stated return policy, you may still be required to provide a valid tracking number of the returned item or other proof of return to us in order to receive a Purchase Protection refund.

When reporting unauthorized purchases, you should notify us immediately so that we can try to protect you from financial loss. You must submit a claim within 60 days after the charge.
You must be in compliance with our terms and policies, including the Community Payments Terms, to be eligible for Purchase Protection.
Resolving and Closing Cases
If we approve a buyer's claim, in some situations, Bloomire may offer a partial refund, otherwise the refunded amount will include the full price of the item, tax, and shipping fees. Decisions on claims are made in our sole discretion.
Reasons your claim could be denied under this policy include:
The item received was the same as described by the seller in your purchase
The claim was filed due to buyer's remorse
