Accidents can happen. So what do you do if you purchased a Groupon and you need to change your order? Follow these steps below to ensure you correct your order to exactly what you need.
At times, it is possible to make the mistake of choosing the wrong item and entering the wrong address while shopping online. In the event this happens, Groupon offers customers a chance to change or cancel their order if it hasn't yet been dispatched by the carrier.
How to Cancel a Groupon Order
To change an order after completing a purchase, you will have to cancel your order first. It is possible to cancel most Groupon orders within 1 to 3 business days. Here are the steps you can follow:
If you don't see the Cancel Order tab, the self-cancellation period has probably passed. You can contact Groupon's customer support.
If you are not able to cancel a product purchased from a 3rd-party seller, you'll have to contact the seller directly.

Editing a Shipping Address
Whether you can be able to change your shipping address post-purchase is dependent on how much time has passed since you finished your purchase. It is possible to change or cancel an order until it has been packaged for shipping by Groupon's warehouse – normally you will have a minimum of 2 hours before this occurs.
Once the order has been processed for shipping, Groupon cannot change or edit it. You will have to contact the package carrier for a solution.
How to Exchange a Groupon Order
Groupon offers customers the possibility to exchange their ordered items for other options from the same deals. An exchange can be initiated within thirty days after the order is received by the customer. To initiate an exchange follow these steps:
After the exchange has been initiated your new order will be shipped at the same speed used for the original order and Groupon will cover the shipping costs. You can exchange an item for any model, color or size that is still on offer on the deal page.
