Refunds: Refunds are a complete refund of the cost of the item in question (see “Return Shipping Charges” below). Refunds can take up to 10-days after we receive the item to be processed internally. After a refund is processed, it can take an additional 3 business days for the funds to show up on your payment method’s statement.
Replacement: This is usually reserved for situations where a customer has received an item that is damaged or the wrong item entirely. In this case, a picture of the damaged product is often required, and the Return System will prompt you for this if necessary.
Return Shipping Charges: Who pays shipping is based on the reason for the return. Generally shipping is paid by FairWindsMarket.com. We will always issue the shipping label (even if the customer is required to pay the return shipping costs). If shipping costs are to be paid by the customer, this cost will be deducted from the refund in the event of a refund request.
NOTE: Only use a shipping label issued from FairWindsMarket.com when processing your return. Please do not send your purchase back to the specific manufacturer, no refund or replacement will be given as the manufacturer does not handle customer orders and does not have the means to provide a refund or replacement.
