Frequently Asked Questions
SourceKit is an essential eCommerce tool that helps Marketplace Sellers automatically earn money back from price drops, missing returns and late delivery credits. Using SourceKit’s powerful suite of Radars, Sellers also save time, reduce error rates, and streamline operations.
After you link the email account you use for making online purchases, SourceKit immediately starts working to get you money back and present you with rich insights on your past purchases and customers.
It first searches for your recent purchases by identifying order confirmation and shipping emails. Then it begins looking for eligible reimbursements in the form of missing returns, late deliveries and price drops. Once it identifies possible refunds, SourcKit presents them on the dashboard—giving you an option to submit your claims, and keep track of them all within the SourceKit dashboard.
SourceKit works best when you connect all the accounts you use for online shopping as secondary accounts, instead of forwarding all the purchase emails to the primary account. You can do that by going to the left panel on the dashboard and clicking on ‘Email Accounts’ to link all the other accounts.
SourceKit constantly analyzes your purchases and updates several Radars with powerful insights to help you earn money and grow your business.
- Recover refunds from uncredited returns
- Get money back from retailers due to late delivery
- Claim the difference back when prices drop after you shop
- Centralize all your purchases in one dashboard
- Find key insights into every customer you have ever sold to
- Download your report from a wide variety of data in a single spreadsheet

SourceKit helps you recover refunds from uncredited returns, delayed deliveries and price drop adjustments.
Each retailer has its own price adjustment policy with different terms and conditions. If a claim does not meet the criteria as outlined in their policy, they reserve the right to reject a claim request. Some common reasons they can reject a claim are:
- item is now out of stock,
- marketplace orders,
- final sale or clearance items,
- bundled items,
- items sold in limited quantity,
- advertising errors or misprints,
- certain blackout periods (like Thanksgiving Weekend, Boxing Day),
- certain product categories (like photo services, prescription drugs),
- BOPIS (“buy online pick-up in store”) (i.e. Kohl’s excludes these types of order but other retailers accept them).
SourceKit pre-screens your claim to make sure that you’ve got the best chance of receiving your refund. Our algorithms won’t present a claim on your dashboard for items that are determined to be excluded by the retailer. As a result, SourceKit maximizes your post-purchase cashback while protecting your relationship with retailers.
If you feel that a retailer rejected your claim in error, please let us know and we’ll chase it down for you. Email us at email@example.com.
Please note: As of September 2019, Walmart announced that it no longer offers post-purchase price reduction refunds for online purchases made at Walmart.com.
As of October 2016, Amazon no longer offers price adjustment claims (except on TVs). If your credit card offers a price protection benefit, you may still be able to protect your Amazon purchases by submitting a price adjustment claim directly to your credit card administrator.

So, if you used your AMEX credit card to make an online purchase at Best Buy, and SourceKit subsequently identifies a price drop of $100 on that item, SourceKit will:
- determine that the price adjustment claim meets the retailer’s eligibility requirements,
- compile relevant claim details and submit the price adjustment request to the retailer on your behalf,
- and negotiate with the retailer to credit the $100 price adjustment back to your original form of payment.
