2. RETURNS AND REFUNDS ON BUZFI
If you wish to initiate a return or exchange for an item, the seller from whom you made your purchase is the primary contact for assistance. Each seller within our platform handles their own orders, including decisions regarding order cancellations, refunds, and returns.
Sellers have the discretion to decide whether to accept returns, exchanges, or issue refunds, unless explicitly specified in their product listing's return policy.
If a seller agrees to process a return, it's important to establish the specific return terms through messaging before sending back the item.
Each seller in our platform has the responsibility to establish their own guidelines for refunds, exchanges, and returns on all their listed products. Sellers can opt to provide varying return policies or choose not to accept returns for specific products they offer. If you're making multiple purchases from the same seller, it's advisable to review the policies for each individual product you intend to purchase.
3. RETURN POLICY

It might take additional time for your financial institution to make funds available in your account.

Upon receiving and inspecting a returned product, we will initiate a refund to the customer. Refunds will be processed within 10 business days of the return approval.
