Amazon.co.uk, and many Sellers on Amazon.co.uk, offer returns for most items within 30 days of receipt of delivery. You can use this page to learn about our return policies. Most items sold on Amazon.co.uk follow our general return policies, but some products have different policies or requirements associated with them.
At Amazon.co.uk we want you to be delighted every time you shop with us. Occasionally though, we know you may want to return items and by law you have the right to cancel the purchase of most items within 14 days without giving any reason. You also have statutory rights where goods are not as described, not fit for purpose or not of satisfactory quality.
Amazon Global Store Items
Most Amazon Global Store items can be returned within 30 days of receipt of delivery. Global Store returns are easy with our online Returns Support Centre. It can take up to 15 - 25 days for an item to reach us once you return it. Once the parcel is received at our fulfilment centre, it takes 2 business days for the refund to be processed and 3-5 business days for the refund amount to reflect in your account.
Please note that your return label may require you to return the item at your own expense. Amazon will automatically refund up to £20 for return postage costs. If you return a defective, damaged or incorrect item, you’ll be refunded for postage and packaging for delivery of the item to you, as well as your Import Fees Deposit, once your return is processed.
The majority of AmazonFresh food items aren't returnable, but may be refunded. See About Spilled or Damaged AmazonFresh Items for information on requesting a refund.
You have the statutory right to cancel your order for any reason within 14 days beginning with the day you receive the item (please see clause 2 of our Conditions of Use & Sale for the full instructions on cancellation and further information on your right of cancellation). To exercise your cancellation right please visit our Returns Support Centre.
As well as your statutory cancellation rights described above, you can return most products from the Amazon sites to Amazon within 30 days of receipt of the products if the products are complete and are in an unused and undamaged condition. To return an item please visit our Returns Support Centre.
Please note that this returns policy doesn't affect your statutory rights and therefore doesn't affect your right of cancellation as described above.

Amazon will refund the cost of sending an item back to us if it’s defective, damaged or incorrect and in many cases, we’ll provide you with a pre-paid returns label. If your return is not the result of an Amazon error, and you’re using a pre-paid return label, we’ll deduct the cost of the return from your refund. For returns from within the UK, costs start at £3.99. International return costs start at £6.50. Please note that returns that contain multiple items, or large items, may cost more. We offer various returns methods which will differ depending on the item(s) you’re returning. We’ll always display the most accurate return costs and methods available for your item(s) in our Returns Support Centre when you create your label.
Please note that certain types of items aren't eligible for cancellation or return under the Amazon returns policy. You can find out more in the Conditions of Use & Sale.
We won't accept the return of any software returned to us if it's been opened. We reserve the right to refuse returns or to charge you our fees and expenses if the product isn't received in new, unopened condition.
