To ensure a consistent experience for customers, you must match or exceed Amazon.sg return policies for seller-fulfilled orders (which includes orders fulfilled using Amazon Easy Ship). For more information on how to comply with return policies, go to Amazon return policies.
Under the Amazon returns policies, all items being returned for change of mind must be returned in the same condition in which the customer received the item. This means that for change-of-mind returns:
Without limiting customers’ rights under applicable Singapore laws, you are not required to accept change of mind returns on seller-fulfilled items outside the 15 days return window or change of mind returns that do not comply with Amazon’s Change of Mind Returns policy. However, please note that Amazon returns policies apply in addition to, and do not limit, other rights and remedies that customers may have under law, including under the Consumer Protection (Fair Trading) Act 2003.
These conditions apply only to change of mind returns and do not apply to items that are returned because they are faulty.
Customer are responsible for the returns shipping costs of any change of mind returns.
The returns policies do not limit other rights and remedies that customers may have under laws such as the Consumer Protection (Fair Trading) Act 2003 in respect of faulty items.
Faulty items do not have to be returned in their original packaging, but must be packaged appropriately to avoid damage during the return shipping process. However, all original accompanying documentation (e.g, price tag intact, manuals, warranty cards, certificates of authenticity, grading, and appraisal etc), and original accompanying accessories must be returned with the returned item.
If a customer requests a return, Amazon will send you an email with the reason for the return. We recommend that you respond to return requests within 24 hours. If the customer's request doesn't comply with our return policies, details will be provided in the email.
To process the return request, go to your Manage Seller Fulfilled Returns page, where you can review, Authorise, Close requests, Issue refund, Contact buyer, or Complete requests. You can select these options in the Orders drop-down menu under Manage Returns. For more information, go to Process return requests
It is important to approve valid return requests as soon as possible in order to ensure that customers can return items quickly. Return requests that are not promptly actioned may negatively affect the customer experience and lead to increased customer contacts.
If you authorise the return request and want to refund the order, you can choose from several options. For more information, go to Refund orders. We encourage you to wait until you receive a returned item before issuing a refund so you can evaluate its return condition. You can issue a concession in addition to or instead of refunding order amounts. For more information, go to Issuing concessions.
We recommend you process refunds (full or partial) within 1-5 working days from receipt, to avoid any customer dissatisfaction.
When you approve a customer's return request, Amazon sends the customer a return label that includes your default return address or an alternative return address that you can set in Return Settings. By default, the return label is not prepaid. However, you can upload a custom pre-paid return label if you choose to pay for return shipping. If prepaid return labels are not available, you can reimburse the customer with the value of the return shipping costs they incur. You can do this when you click Issue refund on the return.
The customer is responsible for any return shipping costs under the Amazon return policies for change of mind returns. However, if the reason for the return is due to your error or a product defect, refund the original shipping cost to the customer and, as applicable, either not deduct return shipping costs from the customer refund or refund any return shipping costs charged.
For international returns, you must do one of the following if you are located outside Singapore:
Under the Amazon returns policy for items shipped and sold by Amazon, Amazon does not accept returns of the following items, and you may also elect not to accept returns of these items under your own returns policy for seller-fulfilled items (except as required under the relevant Singapore laws, including where the item is faulty):
Do note that nothing in the Amazon return policies limit customers’ rights under the relevant Singapore laws, including the Consumer Protection (Fair Trading) Act 2003. For example, under the Consumer Protection (Fair Trading) Act 2003, a customer may be entitled to receive a remedy for a defective item even if the item, due to its nature, cannot be physically returned.
Items identified by Amazon as containing "potentially hazardous" material are indicated with a warning that they may be potentially hazardous. These returns will require your manual authorization before a customer can complete the return and ship the product back to you. When processing a potentially hazardous return, verify that you can receive the product at your returns facility, and coordinate with the customer to ensure they have the appropriate shipping and hazmat labels before sending the product back to you.
Amazon may temporarily extend the returns window during holiday periods. As a seller, you are required to match the extended holiday returns or provide a longer holiday returns period that is more suitable to you and your customers. For information about this policy, go to Holiday Returns Policy.
