We have a 14-day return policy, which means you have 14 days after receiving your item to request a return, if the product is damaged, faulty or the customer has received the wrong order.
To be eligible for a return, your item must be in the same condition that you received it, unused and in its sealed, original packaging. You’ll also need the receipt or proof of purchase.
To start a return, please contact us at [email protected].
If your return is accepted, we’ll send you instructions on how and where to send your package. Items sent back to us without first requesting a return will not be accepted.
We’ll send an email to notify you that we have received and inspected your returned item and then we will let you know when you’re return is either approved or rejected.
If your refund is approved, it will be processed within 10 working days, and the amount will automatically be applied to your original method of payment.
If you have any questions about your return, drop us a line at [email protected] with your order number and proof of tracked delivery.
