Returns questions

Can I return my order

Of course you can! We even have a 180 day return policy!

Visit our RETURNS CENTER to apply for a return. 

Returns need to be reported within 180 days after you made the purchase. After you have informed us about your return, you have an additional 14 days to send the item back. 

To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging. If your purchased item arrived damaged please contact us directly to handle the matter for you.

Once your return is received and inspected, should the customer not wish to replace the product, a refund will be issued to the original form of payment. In the event we are unable to provide a suitable replacement, the customer will be notified and issued an automatic refund. Return shipping costs and all charges for customs clearance must be covered by the customer.

When will I get my refund?

If you haven’t received a refund after 14 days, first check your bank/credit card account again. It may take some time before your refund is officially posted. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted. If you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us and we will sort this out for you. 

Do you offer free returns?

Unfortunately we do not offer free returns unless there is a problem with the item you purchased.

You can ship your item back to us within 180 days using a shipping service of your choice to the following address:
