How do I return an order from Amazon?

Amazon makes it easy to order the things that you need but you would be surprised how easy it is to return things as well with this simple guide.

Many of us purchased items from Amazon and found that they were not quite what we expected. You may have purchased a shirt that was too small or large or bought a product that didn't do quite what you thought it would. Fortunately, returning an item that you're not satisfied with is not difficult. In fact, if you follow a few simple steps you can return your item and be refunded fairly quickly.

Step One

Visit Amazon's return center and select "start a return." Amazon's return policy will reward a full refund for all unopened and new items that are returned within 30 days of purchase. However, this time period may be extended if you are returning an item during the holidays. In addition, if you are returning an item between the first of November and the end of December, Amazon grants an additional month to make returns. After your return item is received by Amazon, your refund will take anywhere from three days and three weeks. Simply enter the item you want to return along with any other information requested by the online application and a return label will be created.

Step Two

Amazon will provide you with a shipping return label that you can print out and attach to your return package. This label serves as confirmation that your return has been authorized. Simply pack all the items into the return box and affix the label and ship it.

Step Three

After you have shipped your return, you can track the status by logging into the Amazon return center and clicking manage returns. You will be able to check whether or not your package has made it to Amazon and when you will receive your refund.

Most of us appreciate the wide variety of products that Amazon offers consumers. As a result, it's easy to understand how common it can be to purchase something that doesn't live up to our expectations. This is one of the reasons why the return process is simple and straightforward. It's also convenient because it can be completed online and a return label can be conveniently printed in your home.
