Returns and refunds policy
Customer satisfaction is our top priority, and as such we handle each query on an individual basis to the best of our ability. We would like to work with you to resolve any problem to the extent we can.
Since we guarantee that every product is new and genuine, and while we hope that you will be delighted with what you receive, there may be a rare instance that our product is not satisfactory to you. If for any reason you are not satisfied with the product and would like to seek a return and/or refund, please review and follow the instructions below carefully. Please be on notice that in order for you to receive a refund, the products must be returned unused, undamaged, in their original unmarred condition, in the original box with all labels in place, and in their original packaging.
Please send all products you wish to return from a single order in the same returns shipment to ensure that your return is processed as quickly as possible. Please select a reasonable shipping method that will reach us in the required time frame (see Required time frame for returns below). We recommend that you use the same shipping company that delivered the package to you.
Please allow up to approximately 6 weeks from the time we have confirmed the condition of the returned products for refunds to be credited to your account. This lead time is due to the various processing times required between payment providers.
When you wish to return the products you have ordered, please e-mail us at email@example.com within 48 HOURS of the delivery of the products.
Please include the following details in your return request e-mail:
Invoice number and date;
Your full name;
The products you wish to return; and
When we receive your return request we will provide you with a Return Authorization (RA) number that must be included with your return shipment.
Please return the products with all documentation, your RA number, original labels on their original boxes, the original packaged materials in their original shipping box, and in their original condition. (In the case of a partial product return, in the interests of economy a smaller shipping box of a similar quality to the one shipped to you may be used along with a reasonable amount of shock absorbing material.)
We ask that you dispatch the package to a local shipping company, with attention to the address shown below, within 7 days from the time of delivery of the products to you. Please note that we require that the products to be returned be received by us within 14 days from the time of delivery to you. See Required time frame for returns for details.
Once we have received the products from you, we will confirm whether the returned products meet the required return conditions. We will refund the full product value (less shipping and handling fees), if the returned products meet all of the return conditions. Please note that all costs associated with the shipping of the returned products and all duties and taxes incurred due to the return are to be borne by you.
In the case of international returns, please be aware that in some cases products returned to Kogei Styling in Tokyo may incur import duties and taxes levied by the Japanese customs where the returned products are not adequately described as returned products. To minimize the risk of such occurrences, we require the return of all documentation that was issued to you when the products were originally shipped.
(Please be sure to keep the documents relating to customs duties and taxes that you may have paid to the local authorities as you may be able to recover any duties and/or taxes paid.) However we do not guarantee that unnecessary charges will not be incurred even if all documentation is in order. It often depends on how the returning shipping company handles the customs clearance process in Japan. To such ends, we advise that you use the same shipping company who delivered the products to you in order to minimize the risk of incurring unnecessary charges.
We will do our best to minimize any unnecessary charges in relation to returns and will endeavor to clearly communicate with you as often as we can. You are financially responsible for all shipping and handling charges in relation to the products, and assume full responsibility for their safe return. We remind you to check with the returning shipping company that you have sufficient insurance coverage for your package.
Every troubled case is unique and different. When you are having trouble with our products, it means that we are too. We do our best to communicate with you to try to understand the facts of the situations, and try to find the best solution.
In cases where the situation is not contemplated by this Agreement, we will do our best to find a mutually acceptable solution. However, where the situation is contemplated by this Agreement, we will not deviate from it.
