Refund & Return Policy
Returns and refunds are classified by the following categories:
(I) Item Not Received, (II) Item Not As Described, and (III) Other Reason Returns
The following conditions apply for all return and refund requests.
I. ITEM NOT RECEIVED
SITUATION: Order never arrives at your door.
We offer a 100% Refund Guarantee in the event that you never receive your order.
II. ITEM NOT AS DESCRIBED
SITUATION: Item significantly not as described
An item is defined as not matching the product description if upon receipt it is damaged, defective, or has other quality issues where the item cannot be used for its intended purpose.
For electronic items or those where a product model number is included in the item description, item photo, or item title, the assumption is that these items have all the functionality of the product model number.
In the following situations where a product is believed to not match the item description, valid information such as a photo or video of the item should be provided to the Resolution Center where a return and refund will be determined. For items where there are serious defects, returning the items may not be necessary.
Table 1. Examples of whether an item qualifies as significantly different from description.
Table 2. Examples of whether an item qualifies as not as described.
SITUATION: Quantity issues
1) Quantity shortage
If an order received has less quantity than described, the Resolution Center will review the photo received from the buyer and freight weight certification to determine whether a refund will be issued.
If an order does not meet described measurements or there is a misunderstanding of measurements, the Resolution Center will review the item description and adhere to global recognized measurements.
For example, for earrings, 1 piece would refer to 1 pair of earrings.
SITUATION: Fake or misstated items
If an item received differs from the product description because it is fake or misstated, the Resolution Center will review as to whether a refund will be issued. Generally, photo or video of the item will need to be submitted. An example of a fake item is where the item description states the material is gold, but the item is of another type of material.
SITUATION: Items that infringe on intellectual property rights (IPR)
If an item received infringes or violates an authorized brand holder's intellectual property rights, the Resolution Center will review as to whether a refund will be issued. Generally, photo or video of the item will need to be submitted.
SITUATION: Color, style, or size discrepancies
If an item differs from the item listing's photos and/or size, color, appearance, style, model or material, the Resolution Center will review as to whether a refund will be issued.
For color or style discrepancies, options available include return and full refund, or partial refund. If the item is returned, the Merchant will be responsible for the return shipping fees.
For size discrepancies, the Resolution Center will review information provided via photo or video as to whether a refund will be issued.
