Check Return Status

Track the status of a return based on the possession and location of the shipment.


Return Process Lifecycle

  1. Return shipment is delivered to the returns facility by the shipping company.
  2. The returned package is opened, manually reviewed, and inspected by an agent. 
  3. Merchandise is either accepted, refused, or placed on hold. Notifications are sent to the customer via email.
  4. Return is finalized and any new invoices are generated and emailed to the customer.

Track Return Shipment

Track the returned shipment with the shipping courier used to receive the estimated delivery date and the date delivered to the returns facility. The shipping company must be contacted for assistance if the return shipment has not been delivered to the returns facility. 


Return Processing & Finalization

All returns are manually opened, reviewed, and inspected by an agent. Upon review, the return is either accepted, refused, or placed on hold, and an email notification of the action is sent to the customer. Returns begin processing within 1-2 weeks from the date of delivery. A notification email is sent by the returns department upon processing the return and when the return is finalized, including any additional refund or exchange invoices. If there has not been any email notification regarding the processed return in 2 weeks from the delivery date, please Request Order Assistance for further assistance.


Exchange Status

Exchanges are processed as new orders. The new order is generated like any other order but will include any credit adjustments from the returned merchandise accepted for return. A confirmation of the new order is sent to the customer and may also be found in the order history (for registered customers). Exchange invoices have their own unique reference numbers (order id) and may be tracked like any other order. Exchange orders generally begin processing the following business day from the day they are generated. 


Refund Status

Refund invoices are generated for accepted returns requested for a refund. A copy of the refund invoice is provided via email and may also be found in the order history (for registered customers). Refund invoices have their own unique reference numbers (order id) and may be tracked like any ordinary order. Refund invoices are generally processed to the payment method on file and finalized within 3 business days from the day they are generated. Refunds issued to the payment method may take up to 7 business days to post the bank statement, depending on the cardholder's bank.
