When to ask us to step in and help
Most returns and refunds go smoothly, but if a seller doesn't issue you a refund, you can ask us to step in and help. Depending on the seller's return method, timelines may differ. We guide you to the correct timing as part of your return request, but for reference:
You can ask us to step in and help if the seller doesn't issue a refund within 5 business days of receiving the returned item, or within 5 business days of the estimated delivery date for the returned item if no tracking is used. You have 10 business days to ask us to step in and help after the seller's time to issue a refund has passed.
If a seller doesn't respond to your return request, you can ask us to step in and help 3 business days after you request a return.
Things to keep in mind:
Request a return by the time specified in the Return policy section of the listing.
If we ask you to contact the seller, work with the seller directly and follow their return instructions.
Otherwise, you're issued a return shipping label and packing slip. Then:
Ship the item back to the seller within 5 business days of requesting the return when returning an item for a refund.
Ship the item back to the seller within 5 business days of requesting the return when returning an item for a replacement. If you haven't sent the item back after 30 days, you're charged for the second item and the cost to ship it to you.
Return the item in the same condition as you received it.
