What is Amazon Australia's returns policy?
Amazon Australia accepts returns both when the item you ordered is faulty and when you simply change your mind.
For faulty items, Amazon advises initiating a refund within 30 days of delivery. It will still consider providing a refund, replacement or repair if you apply for a refund outside of that 30-day window, but your eligibility will be decided on a case-by-case basis. If Amazon determines that the fault was a result of mishandling or mistreatment on your part, you will not be eligible for a refund.
If you want to return an item because you've changed your mind, you must return the item in its original, unopened packaging within 30 days of delivery. Any shipping costs incurred during the original order won't be refunded.
