I processed my Happiness Guarantee but compensation (credit, refund, or re-order) has been denied
Not all Happiness Guarantee claims are processed immediately. Some are automatically referred for review. A claim being referred is not an implication of wrongdoing or dishonesty.
Following investigation, the happiness guarantee will either be processed or declined. Reasons for a declined claim include:
Situations where we are repeatedly unable to fulfil a customer’s expectations
Issues beyond the control of the company or its supply chain
Dissatisfaction with pricing, where you have received the correct items
Spurious or dishonest claims.
Furthermore, if the above criteria are found to be in evidence on previously accepted happiness guarantee claims, allocated store credit may be removed from an Appleyard account and, in extreme cases, we may refuse to process any further orders for the individual or to use previously used delivery addresses.
All decisions will be made in keeping with your rights as set out by the Consumer Rights Act.
Refund fraud is a type of payment fraud in which an individual or a group of people falsely claim a refund or reimbursement from a company, government organisation, or financial institution.
We use data analysis and fraud prevention tools to protect ourselves from this type of fraud. If we feel there is sufficient evidence that a claim is dishonest, we may pass this information to a law enforcement agency. This will be done within the framework of current data protection laws.
Can I appeal a declined claim?
If we decide to decline a Happiness Guarantee claim, the customer may appeal in writing to:
