(ii) You are cancelling the purchase of an item within the right of withdrawal period of 14 days and the price of the item to be returned amounts to more than 40 Euro (please note: The amount of 40 Euro refers to the price of the single item to be returned and not to the sum of all items to be returned).

  • If you return your item within Austria to the respective return centre you may return the package with no pre-payment.

If you wish to return an item within Germany that weighs more than 20 kg , please contact Customer Services. They will arrange for the item to be collected from you. Items from all other countries may be returned via mail regardless of their weight.

Important:

If you filled a product with flammable liquids or gases please remove the liquid or gas before returning the item (for examples remove the petrol from a lawn-mower or the gas capsule from a camping stove). For safety reasons, please return any items such as cutting tools and axes in a safe condition, preferably in the Amazon packaging material. Once you have successfully finished using our Online Returns Support Centre you will receive an e-mail confirmation with a link to your return summary. The e-mail will contain instructions for printing your return authorization, mailing your package for return and regarding your personalised return label. You can use this e-mail to access your return instructions or to print off your return label at any time during the 30 day returns window for your item.

When we have received the item into our Fulfillment Centre, we will notify you via e-mail of your refund. You can expect a refund in the same form of payment originally used for purchase. If you have chosen to pay by invoice and the invoice has not yet been paid, please disregard it when the items have been returned.

If you have used a gift certificate to pay for all or part of an item you wish to return, that part of your refund will automatically be credited to your gift certificate account, available to use the next time you place an order at Amazon.de.

Otherwise, we cannot accept the return or we may charge you compensation for lost value.

Otherwise, we cannot accept the return or we may charge you compensation for lost value.
