FedEx Refund Integration
Overview of the FedEx refund process
Share a Refund performs a comprehensive shipment audit and recovery service within your FedEx account to identify all refunds available. After Share a Refund signup, our intuitive technology sends a request to FedEx to allow access to retrieve recent invoices and download them into the Share a Refund database to begin assessing the accuracy of each individual charge that is billed to a shipment. The disputes are handled automatically with the required critical information to return the refund to your business. Claims are automatically submitted to FedEx on your behalf without having to lift a finger.Shipments are eligible for a refund when delivered late, overcharged, invalid accessorial fees, billing mistakes or dimensional weight errors. FedEx reviews the claim and the circumstances as to why the claim was submitted, and then reports back with the result of the review. The resulting refunds are posted to the shipping accounts and applied to shipping invoices in the form of credits. Share a Refund monitors these events and reports back on every part of the process in an easy to understand report that is delivered once per week to your email within your customer account. We verify every single refund and follow-up with FedEx if needed. Dollars are delivered back into your business weekly.
