The inspection period is the length of time that allows the buyer to examine the state of the purchased item before the seller is paid.
The inspection period begins upon delivery of the item and finishes 72h later. Throughout this period, the buyer is encouraged to check the item and validate the transaction or report a problem if there is something wrong with the item. Once this period is over, Tripartie automatically validates the transaction and the seller is paid.
The same principle applies to the seller if the item is returned. Upon reception of the parcel, the seller has 72h to check that the item has not been damaged or to report a problem. Once this period is over, Tripartie automatically validates the return and the buyer is reimbursed.
Important: if the item is delivered by hand, there is no inspection period. Therefore it is important to check the item before validating the transaction.
