Alibris' Return Policy

You qualify for a refund of an Alibris purchase if you make the return within 60 days of the purchase, and you are returning the item because it was damaged or defective, because it was not as described, or because it was not the item you ordered. You may in some circumstances qualify for a refund if you simply changed your mind about the purchase. That, however, depends on the individual seller and is not up to Alibris. You may be directed to contact the seller to try to work out a return and refund between the two of you if that is the reason for your return. When it comes to rentals, you must make the return within 21 days of the rental date to qualify for a refund.
