FedEx Money-Back Guarantee

You're eligible to get full refund even if your package is late by 60 seconds

Claim FedEx Refunds with Auditshipment

FedEx guarantees on time delivery for every shipment.


Every time FedEx delivers your package later than the committed time, FedEx promises to refund/credit the entire shipping cost.

However, FedEx does not make the process of claiming refunds easy. FedEx refunds your shipping ost only when a claim request is submitted. The timeframe within which the requests need to be filed is limited to 15 days from the date of invoice generation.

This, in turn, adds layers of complexity to the refund recovery process for late deliveries. Businesses find it exceptionally hard, time-consuming to claim the money that they are entitled to receive.

At AuditShipment, we have built an automated audit system that continuously examines your packages for late deliveries and disputes eligible service failures with FedEx on your behalf. Signing up with us takes less than a minute, and the FedEx refunds for eligible service failures are directly credited to your FedEx shipping account.

Money-Back Guarantee. At our option, we will, upon request, either refund or credit your transportation charges in the event of a service failure (which means delivery of your package 60 seconds or more after the published delivery commitment time for the selected service and destination, except as otherwise described in these terms and conditions). This money-back guarantee is your exclusive remedy in the event of a service failure for the recovery of all or any portion of the FedEx charges for a shipment. If the money-back guarantee is suspended, there is no remedy or recovery of charges for a service failure. There are no delivery commitments for shipments on which the money-back guarantee is suspended.

Limitations. The following limitations apply:

  1. Credits for transportation charges will be applied to the payer’s account only, and refunds will be made payable to the payer only.
  2. Only one refund or credit is permitted per package. In the case of multiple-piece shipments, the money-back guarantee applies to each package in the shipment. If a service failure occurs for any package within the shipment, a refund or credit will be given only for the portion of the transportation charges applicable to that package.
  3. The money-back guarantee for package services destined for areas outside our primary service areas applies only to the portion of the transportation provided directly by us. The money-back guarantee for FedEx Express Freight services destined for areas outside our primary service areas applies to the portion of the transportation provided directly by us and may also apply to the portion of the transportation provided by the cartage agent (see the Cartage Agent section for details).
  4. Shipments scheduled for delivery on a holiday will be delivered the next business day. Observance of local holidays (e.g., Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day) may cause delivery delays. In both circumstances, the delivery commitment for application of the money-back guarantee policy will be extended for a period equal to the length of the holiday.
  5. If a delivery later than the original delivery commitment time is requested by the shipper or recipient before the first delivery attempt is made, the delivery commitment time for application of the money-back guarantee policy will be adjusted to account for the requested delivery date and/or time.
  6. If the shipper or recipient informed FedEx that the recipient location is closed on a certain day or at a certain time, the delivery commitment time for application of the money-back guarantee policy will be the next business day at the delivery commitment time for the service originally selected.

Exceptions. FedEx will not be obligated to refund or credit your transportation charges if:

  1. We provide you with proof of timely delivery, consisting of the date and time of delivery and, if applicable, the name of the person who signed for the shipment, or service-exception information reflecting that the failure to deliver timely resulted from circumstances described under the Liabilities Not Assumed section.
  2. The service failure resulted, in whole or in part, from any of the circumstances described under the Liabilities Not Assumed section.
  3. The payer’s FedEx account number was not in good credit standing, or payment instructions were invalid, and delivery was delayed until payment arrangements were secured.
  4. The shipment was scheduled for delivery on the Wednesday immediately prior to Thanksgiving via any FedEx Express U.S. or FedEx Express Freight U.S. service, and was delivered within 90 minutes of the published delivery commitment time for the selected service and destination.
  5. The shipment was scheduled for delivery during the seven calendar days before Christmas Day via any FedEx Express U.S. or FedEx Express Freight U.S. service, and was delivered by the end of the day on the published delivery commitment date for the selected service and destination.
  6. The shipment was rerouted from the delivery address to a Hold at Location address.
  7. The shipment was undeliverable or returned.
  8. The shipment contained dangerous goods or dry ice.
  9. The shipment was delayed due to an incorrect address or ZIP code or the unavailability or refusal of an appropriate or eligible person to accept delivery or sign for the package.
  10. The shipment was delayed due to security or other regulatory delays, including permanent, regular, or daily security procedures at the recipient location.
