Major sales like Prime Day and Black Friday can have us making impulse purchases that we don’t necessarily need all in the name of picking up a good deal on Amazon. If an item has arrived at your door that you regret purchasing (or even worse, has turned up damaged), here’s how to return it. 

Most items sold on Amazon can be sent back to the warehouse as long as they remain unused and undamaged by you. However, there are a few exceptions. These include digital content like apps and ebooks, products that could expire quickly, personalised items and items that have had their seals removed, like sealed audio and video recordings and items that have been protected for hygiene reasons. 

You’ll also need to ensure you return your items within the time period set out by Amazon’s return policy. While this can vary, most orders are eligible for return as long as they’re within 30 days of receipt of delivery.

How long do I have to return an Amazon order?

Most orders can be returned to Amazon within 30 days of receipt of delivery. However, this number can vary depending on the product so be sure to check before you order if you’re unsure. 

Will I need to pay to return my order? 

If your order was sold or dispatched by Amazon itself, Amazon will refund the cost of sending that item back to its warehouse. In many cases, you’ll receive a free pre-paid returns label upon requesting your return.

However, some items may incur a return charge, with prices starting at £3.99 in the UK and £8.09 internationally. The cost will be higher on orders than contain large or multiple items. Again, you’ll want to check the specific item to find out.
