JL only supports online shipping.

“Online shipping” means that you obtain the labels and tracking numbers from the Merchant Help Center, print out the labels, adhere them to the packages, and then pass the packages to the company that is responsible for the pick-up service. Generated labels can be found in the Merchant Help Center.

To use online shipping, you should first set up the API. Links to introductions to the API settings are available below:

Online shipping is essential for JL operations. If you run into problems with setting it up, please contact our merchant support team at merchant@joom.com.

Merchant shall be responsible for ensuring compliance with all applicable terms and conditions for the items, including but not limited to the pricing, quantity, specifications, quality standards, inspection, shipping etc.

JL may refuse to process or cancel, without liability for any losses or damages arising out of or in connection with such refusal or cancellation, any online transaction which in JL’s reasonable opinion has insufficient information to constitute a binding contract.

JL will not be responsible for the quality, safety, lawfulness or availability of the items or services offered under any online transaction. The Merchant agrees not to hold JL and its affiliates and agents liable for any losses, damages, claims, liabilities, costs or expenses arising from any online transactions, including any breach, partial performance or non-performance of the online transaction by the other party to the transaction.

  • Registered Mail (“RM”).
