How does refund work?
Refunding is getting your amount back that you paid to the seller on account of some issues.
We do offer refund assistance if you have encountered any problem, however, we will have to analyze your refund claim & will check if it is genuine. We will revise all the messages with the seller and everything you discussed with them and we will also talk to the seller about what he says in this matter, then, we will decide whether you will get the refund or not.
The process of refunding takes a lot of time as we are a big firm and have all the customers to deal with so you will have to be patient with your request. We will get back to you in time for sure but you may not receive your reply right away.
We will assess refund or credit requests (if you have an account) on their merits, considering the digital nature of items and the type of item preview that was available before purchase. There is generally no obligation to provide a refund or credit in situations like the following:
- You have changed your mind about an item.

- If the seller or we decide to issue a refund, the amount will show up on your account balance. If you wish to move this amount back to your financials we can do that too on your request.
- So if the item was purchased using a particular payment method you will be refunded using the same payment method in reverse. Any payment made to you will be made in US Dollars, under the rules of the payment method.
