How to Complete Return Request from Jet via goFlow

In this guide, you will learn to accomplish the following things:
- Check customer return items in Jet Order
-  Review all Jet's return merchandise in goFlow
- Receiving the return in goFlow and to complete the return
In Amazon or eBay, all the return request and refund features are accessible within the seller dashboard and everything can be processed in just a few seconds, however, in contrast, when you are using Jet Order platform, these features don't come very handy.  You need another tool like goFlow to process the refund of the return merchandise.
1. Login to Jet Partner Portal as seller:

2. Make sure your Jet Partner is set to Live not test mode.
3. In the dashboard, go to Orders > Returns tab

4. Select one of the returns and verify each Tracking Number ( copy and paste the tracking # to carrier's website to the track the package).
Tracking return item in FedEx

5. Verify if the item has been delivered back to your warehouse and get the merchant SKU.
6. Login to goFlow and go to Returns and search the merchant SKU (choose Item Number as the filter).

7. Once you found the order, open it and in the right corner, activity section click Receive.

8. Enter the number of the Received item by clicking the "+ " icon and click Next.

9. Click Save and the return status will become “Return in Full". –This means the return is already complete and customer refund has been issued.

Don’t be surprised. Searching the specific return in goFlow takes patience when there are other returns with same merchant SKUs. You need to go through each return and determine which one you're actually looking for by comparing quantity and item cost toe to toe. Also, you can’t use customer name or order # to search in goFlow.
If you accidentally close the return in goFlow, you can still re-open it by contacting the goFlow’s marketplace support team.

What is NUP?

NUP stands for Non-Uniformed Personnel also known as Civilian Employee. In the Philippine National Police (PNP), the NUPs are employees who will take over clerical or any office-based duties currently being carried out by uniformed personnel with police skills and training.

The news civilian recruits would be deployed as crime registrars and radio operators for police regional and provincial offices as well as in municipal and barangay police stations.

With a Philippine population of 92 million, the 150,000-police force still lacks the manpower for the ideal police to population ratio, based on international standards, of one policeman for every 500 people.

Where to Find IBAN, BIC or Swift codes for Union Bank of the Philippines?

Need to process bank to bank money transfer overseas through Union Bank in the Philippines? If yes, then, you need to know of their IBAN and Switf codes!

What is UnionBank’s SWIFT Code?

SWIFT stands for the Society for Worldwide InterBank Financial Transactions and is used to facilitate transfers between banks in different countries. UnionBank’s SWIFT code is UBPHPHMM.

What is an IBAN number and what is UnionBank’s IBAN number?

IBAN refers to International Bank Account Number. This number is used as an identifier mostly by European banks. As UnionBank is not a European bank, we do not have an IBAN number, however, we have indicated the IBAN number of our correspondent banks.

Why remit via a Correspondent Bank?

A Correspondent Bank is a bank in which UnionBank has an account in. We highly recommend remitting via a Correspondent bank as a different bank may charge additional fees and create longer turn-around time which may affect date of receipt of funds.

Here is the full list of UBP correspondent bank including their designated Swift codes and IBAN:

Using the IBAN and SWIFT for cross-border payments is an advantage as payments are rarely delayed. As no manual processing is involved, the transaction costs are lower.
