FAQs about the refund

What are possible reasons for a refund?

  1. The vendor cancels an order at the customers request.

  2. The vendor cancels an order when a product is out of stock.

  3. The customer returns a product within the return period.

  4. The customer is not satisfied with the purchased product and asks for a refund.

These reasons may reflect different situations and requirements where a refund may be necessary to ensure a fair and customer-oriented solution.

How long does a refund take?

In most cases, refunds are processed immediately. Customers receive their money back either immediately or within ten business days. We always strive to process refunds as quickly as possible to provide a satisfactory experience for our customers. However, please note that the actual time it takes for the money to be credited to the customer's account may also depend on the respective banks or payment service providers.

IMPORTANT! Please note that SEPA transactions are not posted immediately. Processing a SEPA refund can take up to five business days. For this reason, we recommend that you discuss with your customers in advance that you will be making a refund to avoid duplicate refunds. It is important that your customers know that they have up to eight weeks to request a refund. We ask that you share this information with your customers to ensure a smooth and transparent process.

What products are non-refundable?

  • Products that are within trial and test periods.

  • Products with expired return periods.

  • Products with an initial disabled return period.

At CopeCart, our goal is to offer the best to our customers and that is why in most cases we take care of the refunds on behalf of the vendor. Our goal is to continuously improve the user experience and always meet the expectations of our customers.
