How do I return an unwanted item/order?
We would recommend returning anything to us on a trackable service so that you can keep track of the return coming to us. Items must be packed well, as any damage caused in transit back to us you will need to claim from the courier. In this instance, we will be more than willing to provide you with photos. You are responsible for the shipping cost of returning the item.
How long do I have to return an item?
Our returns policy is 60 day from your purchase date. Your item must not be used and in a resalable condition. Please contact us via email at email@example.com, and our technical team will contact you to start the returns process.
If the return request is made after 30 days of the delivery date, then you may only be entitled to a partial refund
