International Exchanges & Returns

For more information on International Exchanges and Returns, please view our international policies page.

Please follow the packing and return instructions to ensure prompt service:

PayPal, PayPal Credit and V.me by Visa Exchanges & Returns

Returns made after 6 months of the purchase date will be issued a merchandise credit in accordance with our normal Return Policy. For PayPal and PayPal Credit (formerly Bill Me Later), returns made prior to 6 months from the date of purchase will be refunded to your PayPal or PayPal Credit account, or you will be issued a refund check.

For V.me by Visa, returns must be made prior to 60 days from the date of purchase to receive credit on the card stored on your V.me by Visa account. Returns made after 60 days and prior to 6 months will be issued a refund check.

Exchanges for orders placed using V.me by Visa, PayPal and PayPal Credit are different than our normal exchange policies. If you need to make an exchange, we can give you a merchandise credit for your return (following the returns guidelines mentioned above), then you may place a new order for the item you want. Since items tend to sell out quickly; we recommend immediately placing an order for replacement items.
