Hi,  Has anyone had to return a item from youshop back to amazon?  I have a drill with an explosive li-ion battery i can no longer ship.  Amazon looks like they will accept the return and let you print out a UPS pick up slip for free.  But how do you co-ordinate thing with the muppets at Youshop?  If youshop returns the package to Amazon all by themselves, will Youshop charge me freight?

Under YouShops website definitions for prohibited goods there's no mention of li ion batteries...

At this point, it should be clear you need to find out, otherwise you risk the same problem others are having.  If you're okay taking that risk, the answer is yes.

Wrong list, this is youshops one here

 

https://www.nzpost.co.nz/tools/youshop/shopping-with-your-youshop-address/dangerous-prohibited-items

 

 

 

YouShop dangerous or prohibited items

 

The most common examples of items that can’t be sent using YouShop include:

 

  • lithium-ion batteries
  • alcoholic products or beverages
  • food or perishable items
  • perfume
  • nail polish
  • aftershave
  • ink cartridges
  • aerosols
  • stand alone batteries
  • batteries including powercore/powerports which also function as a powerbank
  • firearms - including antique and collectible firearms and parts
  • precious jewellery and antiques
  • counterfeit goods (China)
  • cigars and cigar cases (USA)
  • eCigars and eLiquid (USA)
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Smartphones (USA)
  • Ni-Cad batteries (USA)

 

 

I have a feeling this is all from the Note7 issue with batteries.  As I have said before back in August it was all good to ship.

That's a good political answer :-)

 

I've read everywhere and have no idea if these tablets have lithium batteries or whatever. Was going to get 5 as they are only $NZ50 each, quad core!

Your loss Youshop, I wont risk anything through you again... shipitto here I come.

Looking at web.archive.org on the 7th July 2016 it had the following which has now been removed fro the US shop.  SO yes you use to be able too and it was fine, however this has now changed

 

 

 

Electronic items with lithium-ion batteries YouShop USA

 

Some electronic items including toys which contain lithium-ion batteries can be sent through YouShop USA. A lithium-ion battery must not exceed 20 Wh/cell, or 100 Wh per battery/pack.

 

YouShop Europe

 

Lithium-ion batteries can’t be sent from the UK or Europe via YouShop.

 

YouShop China

 

Lithium-ion batteries can’t be sent from China via YouShop.

 

 

 

Changed too 

 

YouShop USA

 

Lithium-ion and Lithium polymer batteries can’t be sent from the US via YouShop.

 

YouShop Europe

 

Lithium-ion batteries can’t be sent from the UK or Europe via YouShop.

Yes, as does Amazon if you send to a reshipper in an appropriate state.  Pay the extra for Oregon access, and avoid the tax.  Also note shipito does complete repackaging if you want to save more.

Up until sometime after 11 november (after i ordered my drill)  they changed this:

 

Electronic items with lithium-ion batteries
Li-Ion batteries have to be packed in the manufacturer's packaging. The retail packaging that comes with new cell phones, tablets, power tools etc., complies with air shipping regulations. Unfortunately, used items shipped without manufacturer’s packaging do not comply and are illegal to ship.

 


YouShop USA
Some electronic items including toys which contain lithium-ion batteries can be sent through YouShop USA. These batteries have to be packed in the manufacturer's packaging. A lithium-ion battery must not exceed 20 Wh/cell, or 100 Wh per battery/pack.

 

 

 

to what they have now  (see Tripp's post above)

There is a tickbox on shipito for if it has a lithium battery, if you tick it then it shows fewer methods when you go to ship it, and they might ask for a MSDS for the battery to show its capacity and type.
