Our shipping policy has been written by lawyers – nowadays, it’s mandatory!
If you do not want to read the whole nine yards, here is the short version:
The official version:
- If the product you order is in stock, we ship it the next business day in the fastest ways possible.
- If the product is not in stock (doesn’t happen often) we will notify you and issue an immediate refund unless you prefer to wait.
- If the product arrives damaged, we will ask you to return it for a full refund or an exchange.
- If you change your mind within 30days, we will ask you to return it for a full refund or an exchange. Depending on the condition of the product we receive we will negotiate a restocking fee – if it’s new and resellable, the fee will be $0. If like for Ms. Jane, the product has been heavily used, damaged, and broken the fee will be 100% of the product cost.
- What else? oh, if you read through the whole nine yards below, let us know, we will send you a discount 🙂
