Distance selling - goods arrive without invoice!

  Bansaw 14:11 11 Aug 2006

I just bought something online and it arrived without an invoice or packing note or anything that says where it came from.

Aren't items supposed to come with an invoice or packing note in case you need to return the item?

I'm concerned that if I need to return the item I'll get problems...

Any comments?

Contact the seller?

Contacted them, no response for a few days...

It's not hidden in the plastic sleeve where the address is, is it?
usually they fold the invoice up to show the address then put it into a clear plastic envelope stuck to the parcel.

Nope. Looked everywhere. It didn't come attached to the outside or inside.

By law the retailer must provide information about the company, returns procedures and other relevant material. Perhaps this as been provided on the website as a print-out!.

No e-mail notification and/or details of the invoice?

Did you have to set up an account when you purchased the item?

Some Co., to cut paperwork/cost, put the invoice/reciept in the account area.

No account created. Just a simple checkout.
Their website documentation is pretty thin.
You're right though, another company I bought from send me a PDF invoice. This one didn't.

Is there anything in their help/faq section about invoices/paperwork?

Seems daft that there is no paperwork at all.
