Used / Dirty Items Within 30 days
If we receive an item that is dirty and not sellable, we will issue a store credit of 50% of the original sales price of the item(s). No used/dirty items can be returned after 30 days.
Custom Items and Made-to-Order Items
Any items that are custom made, or made-to-order are not returnable.
Products shipped directly from the manufacturer are only returnable within 30 days of purchase and will require special handling. Please contact us for instructions from the manufacturer on how to return the specific product. Please reach out to us directly to request a return on a dropshipped item.
If your order qualified for free shipping and due to the size and weight of the order, freight was required, if the order drops below the $49 free shipping threshold, the freight charge will be deducted from your total refund.
Orders that qualified for free shipping when you placed an order
If you return items purchased using our free shipping offer and your order total drops below the free shipping threshold ($49), the shipping charges we incurred when shipping the original order will be deducted from your return total.
Partial Return Example:
For example, if your total order amount was $100 and you are returning $70 worth of items, your new order total that you are keeping is now $30. Since your order qualified for free shipping when you initially placed an order and your total amount you are keeping is now $30, which is below our free shipping threshold, we will be deducting the actual shipping cost (i.e. $10) that we incurred when we shipped out your order. Therefore, the total refund from us will be $70 - $10 = $60.
Full Return Example:
You purchased $60 worth of items, and returned the entire order. The order total is now $0. The $60 order qualified for free shipping, and the new order total after the return is below the free shipping threshold. The actual shipping cost we incurred was $10. This $10 will be deducted from the $60 return. Amount of refund: $50
If our design service was used and the paid credit was applied to the order, when more than 25% of the order is returned, the initial design fee will be deducted from the refund. If you have questions about your design cost or refund amount, please contact our helpful customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We don’t do exchanges since we do not store any of our customers’ credit card information due to security reasons. Therefore, we have no way of charging you the difference if your balance is more than your initial purchase. You can send us the unused items back and we will issue a refund (order under 90 days) or a store credit (order over 90 days) for the items you do not want to keep.
If you ordered the wrong sizes or ordered by mistake, please contact us at email@example.com to let us know your return reasons in advance, that way, we are able to make notes on your order not to deduct the shipping cost from the refund amount.
You purchased $60 worth of items and achieved the free shipping threshold ($49) and the cost to ship your order was $10 from our end. Then you realized you ordered the wrong size of one item(item price is $30). Normally, if you return it, we will be deducting $10 (our shipping cost) from your total refund $30: however; if you let us know you will be placing a new order to get the correct item in advance, we will not deduct the shipping cost ($10) from the refund and you will receive the full refund amount of $30.
We are unable to cancel orders once the warehouse has started processing your order. To cancel your order, please visit your account dashboard to view the details of your order and click on “Cancel this order.”
