You’ve Just Placed An Order On Temu App. What Happens Next?

So, you’ve just placed an order for a Stainless Steel Travel Coffee Mug on Temu, the newest US online shopping site. You’re excited to take the mug with you on an upcoming camping trip and can’t wait for the day it arrives on your doorstep. You’ve just submitted the payment and had your order confirmed – what happens next? We’ll go over the process from when you click “Purchase” to when you open your brand-new Temu package.

Order Confirmation Page

After your order has been successfully paid and confirmed, you’ll be taken to the order confirmation page.  This will display the shipping cost (if any) and the estimated delivery time. In addition to your order confirmation page, you’ll also receive an order confirmation message that will give you an estimated processing time for your order.

Real-Time Order Tracking

Once you’ve placed your order, you’ll be able to track it in real time with Temu’s order tracking feature. On your Temu profile, you can find all of your orders listed underneath the “Your orders” tab. Under this tab, you’ll find the following sections:

  • All orders. This shows you every order you’ve ever placed on Temu, from the first order you made to the one you just purchased moments ago.
  • Processing. This will show you the orders that have just been placed but have not yet been shipped. The warehouse usually takes 1-3 days to process your order. Once the order has successfully shipped, it will move over to the “Shipped” tab.
  • Shipped. This will show the orders that have successfully been shipped. On each order, you can see the estimated delivery time and tracking number.

Temu notifies you every step of the way with updates about your order. You’ll receive a message as soon as your order ships, giving you an estimated delivery time for each package. This will also provide you with a tracking number you can use to see where your order is in the shipping process.

While most orders are delivered within the estimated time frame, deliveries may be affected by external factors like flight arrangements or weather conditions. Check your tracking information regularly to see up-to-date delivery information.

Purchase Protection

Temu has a Purchase Protection Program that ensures you easily get help in the rare instance that something goes wrong. You are eligible for the Temu Purchase Protection Program if:

  • Your order doesn’t match the item descriptions or photos
  • Your item arrived damaged
  • Your item didn’t arrive or was lost in the mail

To get a refund for your order, you need to take three simple steps. These include:

  1. File a return.  Under the “Your orders” page, select the item you want to return and click the “Return/other help” button. Share the reason for returning the item and the return method, then click “Submit.”
  2. Print the return label. Click “Print” to print the return label, then tape it to the outside of your return package.  Mail the package at your nearest USPS or UPS office within 14 days of submitting your return.
  3. Get refunded. Eligible items will be refunded either to your original payment method or as a Temu credit. You will receive a confirmation when the refund is complete.

90-Day Free Return

Let’s say your stainless steel mug arrived right on time and in perfect condition. But, you’ve decided that you actually want the 510ML size instead of the 380ML and you’d like to return it. Not to worry! Temu offers 90-day free returns for eligible items.  Items not eligible for return are:

  • Clothing items that are worn, washed, damaged, in an incomplete set, or missing tags/packaging/hygeine stickers
  • Items that are labeled as non-returnable
  • Gifts

Make the return through the same process listed above in the “Purchase Protection” section. Return shipping is free on your first return for any order. However, if you’ve already returned items from an order and want to return additional items from the same order, you will have to pay a $7.99 shipping fee that will be deducted from your refund. Once Temu receives your package, they will process your refund within 7 days.

Customer Service

If you encounter any problems along the way, Temu’s customer service team is always there. Their help page lists topics where they post answers to your most common questions. If you need additional help, you can contact them via the “Support” button.  They’ll walk you through anything you need to make sure you receive the product you need when you need it.
