If a shipment gets lost or damaged, then you can submit a claim for Evri. Claims must be made within 23 days from the shipping label creation date. Claims for late shipments aren't supported.

  • the postcode of the delivery address
  • the value of the items in the shipment

    • one photo that shows the damaged product
    • one photo that shows the condition of the shipping package
  • if the package arrives empty, then you can provide two photos of the package

If the claim is for a lost package, then also include a signed Denial of Receipt (DOR) from the customer and the date that you received the DOR. To help the claims process, you can also include any comments from the customer.

Get a Denial of Receipt

If a package is marked as delivered but your customer never received the package, then you must get a signed Denial of Receipt (DOR) from the customer before you submit a claim to Shopify Shipping.

You can use the following DOR template to send to your customer in an email for them to sign:

Hello [your company name],
I wish to deny receipt of the parcel with the tracking number of [insert tracking number].
I can confirm that I have checked with my neighbours and those in my household who might have signed for or received the goods, and this parcel has not been received.
I have fully checked around my property and have not located the parcel.
I will inform you immediately if the parcel arrives.
I agree to co-operate with Evri Loss and Prevention and the police in the event of any investigation into the missing items.
I confirm that this declaration is true and accurate in all respects.
I understand that making a false statement can lead to prosecution.
Signed: ______________________
Date: ____________________

Reroute a shipment

If a shipment that has been accepted by Evri needs to be returned or sent to a different delivery address, then you can request to reroute a shipment. Due to processing times for rerouting requests and the different parties involved in the shipment, rerouting shipments isn't always possible.

There is no fee to intercept a shipment unless the shipment needs to be relabeled. If a shipment needs to be returned to you, then there is an additional undelivered fee.

When you contact Shopify Support, make sure that you have the following information:

  • The tracking number (also called the Evri barcode)
  • The new delivery address

Dispute an adjustment

If you are incorrectly charged an adjustment, such as an adjustment for an incorrect shipment weight or oversized package, then you can dispute the adjustment.

When you contact Shopify Support, make sure that you have the following information:

  • The tracking number (also called the Evri barcode)
  • The reason for the dispute
  • Any supporting documents or images, such as showing the measurement of a package
