Returns

Orders can be cancelled at no further charge up to the time in which the dispatch has been prepared for shipping to the Customer. If the Customer cancellation request comes after the order has been prepared, the cancellation will be considered as a return by the Customer.

Our policy lasts thirty (30) days. If thirty (30) business days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange. If within the thirty (30) day timeframe, we will refund the price you purchased your item at, excluding the shipping costs associated to your order which are non-refundable.

Refunds (if applicable)

Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.
If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within 7 - 10 business days.
Most returns will be processed in approximately 2-3 weeks although, on occasion, some returns may take up to twenty eight (28) calendar days to be processed.

Late or missing refunds (if applicable)

If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again, then contact your credit card company; it may take some time before your refund is officially posted.
Next contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted.
If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us at support@playingforchange.com.

Sale items (if applicable)

Only regular priced items may be refunded, unfortunately sale items cannot be refunded.

Gifts

If the item was marked as a gift when purchased and shipped directly to you, you’ll receive a gift credit for the value of your return. Once the returned item is received, a gift certificate will be emailed to you.

Shipping

You will be responsible for paying for your own shipping costs for returning your item. Shipping costs are non-refundable. If you receive a refund, the cost of return shipping will be deducted from your refund.
