All apparel items can be returned within thirty days of receipt, to be exchanged into a different size or re-funded. The customer needs to arrange and pay for the return shipping cost.
All returned items must be in "as new" condition. "As new" means unwashed, unworn, and unmodified in any way. We cannot exchange or return items that have been returned with strong smells such as perfume/cologne, detergent, and cigarette smoke. "As new" also takes into consideration any orders that included any in-game codes. We cannot issue refunds on any item that included an in-game code unless the code has not been used.
All non-apparel products (including collectibles) can be returned within thirty days of receipt, if the product has not been unpacked, and is in its original state and condition. Included bonus codes must be unused.
