COMPLIANCE WITH THE CONSUMER CONTRACTS REGULATIONS

To Comply, you agree to:

Make clear your delivery details including length of time required to deliver the goods.

Refund the product and any postage within 14 days of receiving the goods back.

You cannot usually deduct for removal of packaging to inspect the item, but you can deduct for damage or wear and tear where the item has not just been checked but used.

Custom orders are exempt from cancellation unless faulty.

Returns policy for goods that are not faulty.

If you sell with RMOM you agree that the buyer has the right to terminate the contract and return the item even if the item is not faulty within 14 days (this is the consumer’s right in UK law).

The buyer pays for the cost of return postage.

Custom orders are exempt from cancellation unless faulty.

If goods are faulty:

The consumer has a right to return goods if they become faulty up to six months after receiving them.

Depending on the circumstances, the buyer may be entitled to a free repair, replacement, full or partial refund. More information.

If the item is lost in transit then, unless you can prove otherwise, you assume the contract is terminated and you must provide a refund or re-deliver the same item. It is always a good idea to send with a tracked delivery.
