Free Returns and Refunds Policy

EXTENDED RETURNS: we have extended our returns period in preparation for the busy gift-buying period. This way, you don’t miss out on that special gift you have spotted. You can now return until the 30th January, or within 60 days, whichever is longest. 

Free & Flexible Returns 

Sometimes things don’t quite work out. We understand and in the unfortunate circumstance that you need to return your bag or other product, we’ll make it easy.

All unused bags with tags still attached can be returned within 60 days of delivery for a full refund, no questions asked. Oh yes, returns ship for FREE, too.

After contacting us, we'll send you a label so that you can easily return your parcel to us, free of charge.

Our policy for changing your mind (which is fine) lasts a generous 60 days from date of delivery to you. If 60 days have gone by since your delivery, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange. 

So, to be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging.

Several types of goods are exempt from being returned. Items which have been engraved are included. Perishable goods such as food (if we sold it!), flowers (those too), newspapers or magazines cannot be returned (we won't read them). We also do not accept products that are intimate or sanitary goods (we definitely don't sell those), hazardous materials, or flammable liquids or gases (and we could do without these in our warehouse. Oh the joys of the small print).

Additional non-returnable items:
Gift cards
Downloadable software products
Some health and personal care items (but you can return our bag care kits. Provided you haven't used them. Obvious but this is a returns policy - the blindingly obvious has to go in).

To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase. Your order number and name will do just fine. 

Please do not send your purchase back to the manufacturer. They'll be completely perplexed. To organise a return, please email orders@madeintuscany.co.uk and we'll take care of the rest. Do allow us 24hrs to get back to you. It won't affect the 60 day limit. It's best to do this in writing rather than by phone so we can send the label to your email and anything else you need to make it nice and easy. 

There are certain situations where only partial refunds are granted (if applicable)
Book with obvious signs of use
CD, DVD, VHS tape, software, video game, cassette tape, or vinyl record that has been opened
Any item not in its original condition, is damaged or missing parts for reasons not due to our error. 
Any item that is returned more than 60 days after delivery. 

Refunds (if applicable)

Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item safe and sound. We will also notify you of the approval of your refund. If there's a problem with what you sent back (sometimes people have sent us back things we don't sell by mistake. It's nice to get a surprise like this but probably not so great for whoever sent it), we'll talk it over. 
If you are approved for a full refund (this sounds like a credit card application!), then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days. We will aim to complete all refunds within 7 days. It sounds like covering ourselves (to be fair, we are) but do bear in mind that the banks dictate the terms - so refund times can vary. It's usually only 3-4 working days from when we press the button to it arriving with you. 

Late or missing refunds (if applicable)

If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again. It's amazing how often people check the wrong account. 
Then contact your card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted. They can tell you. 
Next contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted.
If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us at orders@madeintuscany.co.uk and we'd better look into it our end. In this case we'd massively appreciate it if you kept in touch. Reporting it to your card provider is your choice, but it's much better if we can deal with it and avoid a costly fine! 


Sale items (if applicable)

Will also be refunded. No problems there. A bargain all around. 

Exchanges (if applicable)

We only replace or fix items if they are defective or damaged due to manufacture (although if our courier has inadvertently dropped a washing machine on your parcel this would definitely qualify as something that wasn't your fault). If you need to exchange it for the same, or another item, send us an email at orders@madeintuscany.co.uk and we will send returns instructions.

Gifts


If the item was marked as a gift when purchased and shipped directly to you, you’ll receive a gift credit for the value of your return. Once the returned item is received, a gift certificate will be mailed to you.

If the item wasn’t marked as a gift when purchased, or the gift giver had the order shipped to themselves to give to you later, we will send a refund to the gift giver and he will find out about your return.

Shipping

To return your product, you should mail it back to us. We will also be able to organise a Collect Plus label for you (in normal conditions the cost of this is subtracted from your refund (£7)). At the time of writing, we're covering the cost for your return, though. So there is nothing for you to pay. 

You will be normally be responsible for paying for your own shipping costs for returning your item (again, free at the moment). Shipping costs are non-refundable. If you receive a refund, the cost of return shipping will be deducted from your refund.

Depending on where you live, the time it may take for your exchanged product to reach you, may vary.

If you are shipping an item over £75, you should consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We don’t guarantee that we will receive your returned item. In most cases it'll be fine, but for things like expensive leather bags, it's better to be safe. Our Collect Plus service provides tracking.
