Things to consider before issuing a refund

Before you issue a refund, consider the following:

  • After you have authorised a return request, you can wait until you have received the item back from the buyer before you issue a refund. If you prefer, you can allow the buyer to keep the item, even if you decide to issue a refund.
  • If the buyer returns the item to you damaged or in a condition that is different from the condition in which you sent it, you have the option of issuing a partial refund. If you decide to issue a partial refund, we recommend explaining this to the buyer in advance to help avoid misunderstanding or a possible A-to-Z Guarantee claim.
  • If you described and listed the item accurately, but the buyer simply no longer wants it, you have the option not to refund the dispatch costs.
