As an online retailer, The Vegan Markets do not have physical retail stores where you can return your faulty products. As such, it is important that you provide the vendor and our team with as much information as possible (including photos and/or videos) to ensure your product fault can be diagnosed promptly, and so that we can resolve your issue. The following steps explain the process for returning a faulty product:

 Manufacturer’s Warranty

In most instances, where you experience an issue with a product that comes with a manufacturer’s warranty, the manufacturer will be able to provide a faster assessment and remedy. Many manufacturers will have dedicated Support centres with access to more detailed knowledge on their respective products, in addition to better access to spare parts. You may prefer to contact the manufacturer directly to seek a resolution through the vendor.

Marketplace Products

TVM provides a Marketplace that allows other retailers to list their items on the store and sell their items directly to you. All items on the marketplace will arrive from the retailer and not from The Vegan Markets. You will be provided retailer name directly above the product price on the listing.

If you have purchased a product from a Marketplace seller and it is faulty, you can contact the retailer directly through your account dashboard or through the vendor section of our website and they will assist you with your claim.

In the event that you are unhappy with the remedy offered by the Marketplace Retailer, or you believe the remedy is not in accordance with the ACL, please request the vendor to escalate your claim to a TVM representative and we will be more than happy to assist you.

 Change of Mind Returns

TVM understands that you will not always be able to test and handle a vendors products prior to purchase, please ensure you check the returns policy of the vendor prior to purchase as some items may be non-returnable, or fees may be charged to re stock the item.

if you simply changed your mind, found the item cheaper elsewhere, decided you did not like the purchase, or had no use for it, so please check the item listing carefully at the time of purchase to see if the product you have ordered is eligible for a change of mind return.

 Size Exchange

Please check with the vendor before ordering if you are able to exchange clothing items. If a vendor does provide returns and exchange of these item, clothing items must be returned in their original condition, unworn and unwashed and with all tags on in order to be approved for exchange. Footwear must be in its original box with all packaging and tags. If the product is not in the above condition the vendor may refuse or charge fees to bring the product back to saleable condition.

Due to hygiene reasons, returns and exchanges cannot offer a size exchange for socks, lingerie (bras, underwear and shapewear) or swimwear.

When returning a product for a size exchange, you will be responsible for the cost of return postage, and you must comply with the directions provided by the vendor. The product will remain your responsibility until it has been received at the address supplied by vendors customer service team.
