Returns, refunds, and exchanges are part of doing business as customers may not be satisfied with their orders for any number of reasons: they arrived damaged, they ordered the wrong size, or the item simply didn't meet their expectations, so they will ask you for an exchange or a refund.
Below is a basic template for a return policy that can be adapted to fit your business. Just replace the bold text with your own policy and use the lists as a guide to make sure you don't forget to include any important information:
If you want to return or exchange your order for any reason, we're here to help! We offer free exchanges or returns within 14 days of receiving your order. You can return your product for store credit, a different product, or a refund to the original method of payment.

The same exceptions to the right of withdrawal apply to our return policy. The following products cannot be returned except in the case of defective products:

If your items are found to be defective after Tienda24's 30-day return period, Tienda24 will provide you with the Certified Repair service for eligible defective items. Repair will be performed by the manufacturer or by a third-party repair service provider authorized by the manufacturers to repair their products. If we are unable to repair the item, we will send you a replacement, and if the replacement is not available, we will refund your purchase price.

HOW TO FILL OUT A RETURN REQUEST
- PRODUCTS OR REFERENCE: Enter the name of the item that you want to return or, if you know it, search directly using the Tienda24 code.
- ORDER NO.: the application is intuitive and will automatically show you any orders from your order history that the item could be linked to. If you have several orders containing the same product, select the one which corresponds to this issue.
- ISSUE: From the dropdown menu, select the type of issue which most closely corresponds to the reason for your return.
- DESCRIPTION OF THE ISSUE: Please explain in as much detail as possible the problem with the product that you wish to return. Descriptions such as 'it doesn't work' or 'it doesn't do what it is supposed to do' do not clearly outline the issue and will be refused. It is necessary to provide a clear, detailed, and precise description of the way in which the product is faulty in order to proceed with the return.
- ADD: click on the 'Add' button to include the entry in your returns draft.
- DUPLICATE: In the case of having more that one unit from the same order that has the same problem, you can duplicate the entry using the 'Duplicate´ button.
- DELETE: if you wish to delete an entry, click on the 'Delete' button.
- You will be able to edit the draft and continue adding entries until you either reach a total of €90.00 in merchandise to return, or a period of 6 months has passed since the acquisition of the oldest product to return. Once one of these requirements has been met, you will be able to send the draft by clicking on the Send return request button.
- Once the draft is sent, our Technical Support Team will check it. If all the descriptions of the issue/s are in line with our general terms and conditions, you will be notified that your draft has been preapproved. In the case of the Technical Support Team not accepting any description, the draft will be returned to your control panel and you will be notified by email so that you can revise it and carry out the necessary modifications or delete the items which were not accepted.
- You must indicate the exact address where the merchandise will need to be picked up. Your billing address will appear by default but you can change this if you wish. Please also indicate the number of packages that the carrier will need to pick up.

The preapproval of a draft does not necessarily mean the approval of a full refund. The amount to be refunded will be confirmed after the Technical Support Team's final valuation.
Products sold or shipped by Tienda24 are exempt from return costs regardless of the reason for the return, as long as it is made from Spain within a period of 30 days from the date of receipt of the product. Free returns are not available for heavy and bulky items.
