Fulfilment by Merchants (Daily Delivery)

Cancellation Rules

All cancellation of order from Merchant should be informed an hour (1 hr) before Farmyumm's collection.

Fulfilment time rule

The merchant commits to processing (i.e. accepting orders via push notification on web or SMS) every order within 8 AM – 2 PM daily once it hits the merchant dashboard, as we don't send orders to maerchants anymore once it's past 2 PM. Any order that comes after that will be carried out the following day.

The Merchant will commit into allowing Farmyumm to deliver all products once there is an order.

  • Packaging Guidelines

Farmyumm will conduct tests and audits of the packaging practices of each merchant and may refuse to take an order for which the packaging is not matching the Packaging Guidelines.

If the products packaged by the merchant are not following the guidelines, item can’t be re-packaged in that case Farmyumm will insist the Merchant re-package the products or decline to take more orders from the merchant.

Merchants are responsible for providing adequate packaging for their products. Adequate packaging will protect the item during the entire delivery.
