Demystifying Returns & Refund Policies: What You Need to Know

In the ever-evolving world of e-commerce, understanding returns and refund policies is paramount. Here at Shinvault, we value your satisfaction and aim to provide you with clear insights into our Returns & Refund Policy. In this article, we will walk you through the essential details, ensuring that your shopping experience is as transparent and worry-free as possible.

Returns: The Basics

The first step in comprehending our policy is understanding what makes a product eligible for a return. To initiate a return, your item must meet the following criteria:

  • Unused Condition: The item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it.

  • Original Packaging: It should be in its original packaging.

Should your item meet these requirements, you can proceed with the return process. Simply contact us at support@shinevault.com to kick-start the procedure. Please note that items sent back to us without prior return requests will not be accepted. Avoid sending your purchase directly back to the manufacturer, as this may lead to complications.

Timing Matters: Return Period

Time is of the essence when it comes to returns. You are eligible to return your product within 7 days of receiving it. Our policy extends up to 30 days from the date of purchase. However, if 30 days have elapsed since your purchase, regrettably, we cannot offer you a refund or exchange.

Partial Refunds: When They Apply

In certain situations, partial refunds may be granted, but only under specific circumstances:

  • Non-original Condition: If the item is not in its original condition, is damaged, or has missing parts for reasons not attributed to our error.

  • Late Returns: Items returned more than 7 days after receipt may qualify for partial refunds.

The Refund Process

We understand that refunds are a critical part of the returns process. Upon receiving your returned item and inspecting it, we will send you an email to confirm the receipt. Subsequently, you will be notified regarding the approval or rejection of your refund request.

If your refund is approved, we will process it within 10 business days. The refund will be credited to your original method of payment or credit card. Please note that the time it takes for the refund to reflect in your account may vary depending on your bank’s policies.

Late or Missing Refunds: What to Do

If you have not received your refund as expected, follow these steps:

  1. Check your bank account to ensure the refund has not been processed.

  2. Contact your credit card company, as it may take some time before the refund is officially posted.

  3. Get in touch with your bank for further assistance, as there may be processing delays.

If, after following these steps, you still have not received your refund, please reach out to us at [your designated support email address].

Sale Items: Refund Eligibility

Regular-priced items are generally eligible for refunds, but please note that sale items are exempt from our refund policy.

Exchanges: When They Apply

We offer exchanges only for items that are defective or damaged. If you require an exchange for the same item, contact us at support@shinevault.com and provide eligible proof of photos. We will guide you on how to proceed with the exchange, including sending your item to the designated address.

Gifts: Special Considerations

Gifts are a special category, and we want to ensure your experience is seamless. If the item was marked as a gift when purchased and shipped directly to you, you will receive a gift credit equivalent to the return’s value. Once we receive the returned item, a gift certificate will be sent to you.

In cases where the item was not marked as a gift during purchase, or if the gift giver had the order shipped to themselves, a refund will be issued to the original purchaser.

Shipping Costs and Responsibility

When returning a product, please keep in mind that you are responsible for the associated shipping costs. These costs are non-refundable. If you do receive a refund, the return shipping expenses will be deducted from the total amount.

For items over $75, we recommend using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. While we do our best to ensure the safe receipt of your returned item, we cannot guarantee its arrival.
