Shipping & Returns/Warranty
You may return most new, opened items within 30 days of delivery for a full product refund. We'll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.). When a product has been used and is not defective, no shipping costs will be refunded and all shipping costs will be deducted from the product refund.
You should expect to receive your refund within six weeks of sending your package to the return shipper; however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (7 to 14 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
We offer a flat shipping rate of $15.00 in Canada. In many cases we will ship with your preferred carrier if requested (handling fee may apply). Overseas shipments may be subject to a hold period until funds have been confirmed.
