Love it or hate it, Amazon UK is one of the leading online retail stores in the world. Amazon sells just about everything and delivers all purchased products quite fast to stated addresses. Apart from selling products, it also offers other services such as streaming music and video.
Unfortunately, not everyone who shops from Amazon UK enjoys a great experience. There are a few cases of customers receiving defective products. Luckily, Amazon has a customer-friendly warranty repairs policy and exchanges & replacements policy.
So, how can you get help with a problem with an order from Amazon UK? To help you answer this question, we need to take a look at Amazon's warranty repair policy.
If you discover that your Amazon order has problems, make sure that you contact the support center through email or phone. Once you state your case, somebody will be willing to help you get the assistance that you deserve.
For some products sold directly by Amazon UK, if they are covered under a manufacturer's warranty, you may have the option of having the products repaired by an authorized third-party repair service. If your defective product is eligible for such repair, you will be offered this as the most viable option in Amazon's returns support center, and you will be permitted to send the product directly to the authorized third-party repairer.
Make sure that you back up your files and erase passwords before you send the device for repair; otherwise, the technician may be unable to repair your item. You should also consider erasing all saved personal information from the device before sending it over to the repairer.
Once the authorized repairer receives your product, you will receive a confirmation email from Amazon. The item will then be inspected thoroughly and all problems diagnosed. If the identified defects are covered by the manufacturer's warranty, the device will be repaired at no cost and returned to you. Repairs can take up top 14 working days.
If the defect isn't covered by the manufacturer's warranty, or if you have voided the warranty, the repairer will contact you with an appropriate repair estimate. You can choose to collect the item and have it repaired somewhere else. If you don't want the authorized repairer to repair your item at an additional cost, it will be sent back to you free of charge. Keep in mind that to repair your device and return it to you, the technician will need the following contact details:
You can also exchange or replace a product that you purchased from Amazon UK through the returns support center. Please note that all items fulfilled by Amazon UK but sold by other sellers can't be replaced but may be returned.
You can exchange your order for a different color or size. This option is available for baby products, luggage, watch items, apparel, shoes, sports, and jewelry that have a color or size variation. However, the exchange item must be of a different color or size than the returned item, and the product must be dispatched and sold by Amazon UK.

PS: Amazon UK can only process exchanges if the initial order was paid by a credit or debit card and dispatched to a UK address.
