To: Jess Choi

From: Christopher Wong

Subject: Defective Merchandise

 

Dear Miss Choi,

 

[發現瑕疵商品 It has come to our attention that your recent shipment of drinking glasses contains defective merchandise.] We are extremely disappointed in the quality of work represented therein. [商品瑕疵狀況 As many as five glasses per crate have been found to have bubbles, cooling marks or sand deposits.] We consider this amount unacceptable. [要求退貨 As such, we cordially request a return of this shipment.]

 

This order was confirmed on August 6 and received yesterday.

 

We calculate approximately five to six weeks for delivery of a new non-defective shipment. [下次交貨日期 Could we expect delivery of the new shipment by September 1? Thank you kindly for your attention to this matter.]

 

Yours sincerely,

Christopher Wong

*Guarantee和Warranty有何不同? 

 

  Guarantee(通常是免費的):Guarantee是賣方向買方承諾所售項目/服務/產品處於最佳狀態(of the best condition)和最新狀態(of the freshest condition),若買方不滿意或上述項目/服務/產品未達到承諾,賣方同意更換或退貨。廠商提供給消費者的Guarantee是一種法律合約,消費者在購買產品時即享有這項權益,無須另外付錢取得。當消費者發現產品有問題時,可要求廠商退貨或修理。

 

  Warranty(類似保險單,需要付費):Warranty類似保險單或合同,即賣方保證,若項目/產品未達到買方期望或在保修期間損壞和發生故障(malfunction),賣方負責修理(repair)和更換(replace)該項目/產品或其部件。消費者需額外購買才能享有,通常是在過了保固期之後另外選購的權益,這種保固通常是由零售商或經銷商所提供。Warranty是一種合同,若公司未履行承諾,可依據保修將其告上法院。

 

  所以兩者最大的差別在於消費者對兩種權益的期待,guarantee保證産品可以更换,而warranty則隱含只提供維修服務。

 

V.如何用e-mail回覆要求退貨信函

 

To: Christopher Wong

From: Jess Choi

Subject: Re: Defective Merchandise

 

Dear Mr. Wong,

We are very sorry that you were disappointed in the quality of the ceramic vases

you received from us. [表示員工在每個生產環節上都已經盡全力避免瑕疵 Our workers have done their best to prevent defects at all points of production.]

 

Despite this fact, we are unable to accept your request for a return. First, it is impossible to prevent defects in all units. It would be foolish to discard 丟棄;棄置 usable items merely because they are aesthetically美觀上 imperfect. Second, our quality assurance team inspects檢查 all of our shipped products carefully. It is unlikely that they have made many mistakes. Finally, please refer to Section 19B of our contract agreement which states: "Imperfections, including small bubbles, straw marks or cooling marks, are considered acceptable as long as they do not occur in more than 5% of the shipped product." Since there are exactly 150 units in each crate, five per crate is well below the contractual limit合同規定的上限.

 

[表示我方並沒有違反合約,因而無法接受退貨 Absent a breach of contract on our part, we will not be accepting a return on this shipment.] If you would like to discuss this issue further, please call me at my office. Thank you very much. 

 

Regards,

Jess Choi
