You can view the seller’s return policy before you purchase an item by viewing the Returns and Refunds Policy section of the seller profile page. To view the seller’s return policy, you can select your order in the Returns Center once you’ve ordered.

Third-party sellers must provide a return address within the United States, provide a prepaid return label, or offer a full refund without requesting the item be returned. If a seller does not offer these methods to return your items, you may file an A-to-z Guarantee claim to seek help with your return.

Items valued over $35 must be returned to the seller with a trackable shipping service. For items below $35, we suggest a USPS delivery confirmation service. If a package doesn’t arrive and you don’t use a trackable method to return it or if you refuse the shipment as a method of return, we may not be able to cover you under the A-to-z Guarantee.
