    • Product description
    • EAN/UPC code
    • QTY per item
    • MSRP - Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price
    • Product packaging material
    • Request for special handling (required for fragile products, glass & liquids)

Step 3: Ship products to Skeepers warehouse

1. Once your shipment has been approved, ship product to the Skeepers warehouse. Contact info is below:

Key points:

  • A delivery note must always be present in at least one of the parcels/pallets of the shipment containing all the delivered products, where the physical barcode is clearly displayed on the product.
  • Parcels should ideally contain a single reference. If they are multi-references, each of them must be well separated from the others (in a plastic bag or with a cardboard separator).
  • In case of receipt not following this process, additional logistics fees of €20 will be applied.

Step 4: Launch the campaign after stock validation

Your CSM will validate the quantity of products on the platform once they have been fully received.

 

Manage the requests from influencers

On the request tab you have three different sections:

1) Pending requests: Outstanding influencer requests that need your approval*

2) Ready to ship: Requests you have approved that are awaiting shipment. From there, Skeepers will handle the shipping for you.

👉 In response to this issue, we recommend always sending a small quantity of additional products.

3) Shipped: Skeepers updates this column when the product has left the warehouse and is on the way to the influencer.

*Requests from influencers must be validated manually. However, Gifted Reviews profiles are automatically validated.

 

⛑️ Shipping issues

Skeepers will take care of the shipping problems.

There are 3 options available when there is a shipment issue:

1. Return the product: if the product has been returned to the warehouse after shipment (this option has no impact on stock, but will be invoiced again).

2.Return a new product: if the delivery service has lost the product (the quantity in stock will then be affected by a discount on the reference in question).

👉 In response to this problem, we advise you to always send a small quantity of additional products: around 10%.

3. Cancel the request: usually when the product is out of stock. The influencer will then get their credit back.
