Return Processing Times:
Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, returns may take up to 14 working days to be processed.

Refund Processing Times:
All refunds are issued as soon as we process your returned items.
If you paid via PayPal you should receive an email from them to confirm that a refund has been issued, and this typically shows up in your PayPal account within a few hours.
