WrapIt go into administration 10147 views
The WrapIt website has announced that the firm is going into adminsitration. As to the question of couples getting refunds for gifts not received that WrapIt site says:
"The answer, for most people, is 'yes'. If you used a credit, Amex or Visa debit card to make the purchase, your card company will give you a full refund once you can demonstrate that the gift was not delivered in the timeframe promised by the retailer. In our case, this is roughly 12 weeks after the relevant wedding. All you need to do is contact your card issuer and claim the refund. They will do the rest. Some banks may refer you back to us with a request to issue you with confirmation of Wrapit's financial status. Unfortunately it is not possible to issue these until Wrapit's financial situation is made clear. However, once we have that clarification, you may well wish to retain your gift purchase. We therefore recommend you wait until we can an official announcement is made here in the coming days.
You may have read that these refunds only apply to purchases over £100. The Consumer Credit Act only requires card companies to cover purchases over £100, but the card companies, in fact, provide this cover for any purchase.
You may also have read that claims must be made within a limited timeframe. The time limit is six months from when the gift should have been delivered. This, in practice means that you will have at least nine months from the wedding date to claim your chargeback."
