How to Return or Exchange an Item at Amazon

Amazon.com is one of the leading online retailers. Amazon sells nearly everything the consumer could imagine. Some items are listed from Amazon.com and others are listed by individual sellers using Amazon as a platform to increase sales. Amazon offers FREE shipping on many items if included in an order over $25. They also offer an Amazon Prime membership that customers can pay for on a yearly basis for FREE upgraded shipping and other freebies and special deals.

When returning an item to Amazon.com you must send the item via mail to the returns facility as there are no stores where items can be returned in person.

Returning an Item

Returning items in person: There is no means of returning items in person to Amazon. All purchases must be returned using the returns address.

Returning items online: Visit the Returns Center,/a> at http://www.amazon.com/gp/orc/returns/homepage.html/ref=orc_surl_ret_hp to start the returns process. Simply click on the Return Items button under the New Return tab. You will be prompted to log in to your Amazon.com account if you’ve not already done so. You will be guided through the process of printing a return label for your return. You must then package the item safely, apply the pre-paid return label and drop the package off at the appropriate mailing facility. Some item return labels will be processed through UPS and others through the USPS.
Amazon Returns Address

Returns Center – Amazon.com
172 Trade Street
Lexington, KY 40511

You should never send an item back to the return’s center for Amazon.com without first requesting a return mailing label from Amazon via your online account. The return label is pre-paid and Amazon.com tracks all returns with a barcode printed on the packing slip included with the mailing label. If you return your item to the Kentucky address without a packing slip the return’s center will have no idea where to credit the refund.

Official Amazon Return Policy

Amazon.com lists detailed product return policies for each of the main sales categories on the website. You can view details about your product on the Product Returns page.

The basic return policy for Amazon.com states that customers can choose to return items for replacement, if defective, if the item was shipped by a third-party. If the item was shipped or “fulfilled” by Amazon, it cannot be replaced, but it can be returned for a refund.

Amazon also processes exchanges, returns of damaged items (both defective and those damaged in shipment), defective items and items shipped in error. All returns are processed through the return page. You can access your individual orders by logging in and clicking on the My Orders tab. Click on the order containing the item you wish to return and click the yellow return button next to the item in question.

Were They Helpful?

When we called Amazon.com customer service at 1-866-216-1072 we were told that all returns need to be processed through a customer’s online account. The customer service representative offered to walk us through the process of starting the return and printing the mailing address label.

  15. Please except the packages back for return the same way shipment sent by delivering froom 172 Trade street Lexington KY 4051. The refund is an inconvenience for us both and not my final decision.

  16. I paid for an apple ipad mini and a brazilian bikini with my husbands visa debit card. The orders was shipped and its been almost a month now and Ive not received them yet. Oh and two returns have not been refunded. There went my beleif in amazons impecable business tactics

  17. I contacted the return online for amazon only to find out this product was not able to return the electrolux vacume i pruchased in February this year. I was asked to review this item for satisfaction and at that time i loved it. It is not working very well only after 4 months what a piece of crap this thing is! I spent good money on this and was told NEVER LOOSES IT SUCTION well at least not for at least 3 months that is. I will not buy an appliance from amazon ever again. thank you so much for the great loyal service on this product is that why you only gave me a month or so to return it, and why you hound me for reviews. Take your reviews from now on a stuff them.

  18. Hi,
    I purchased a cat play toy which was 62″ and was able to put together by myself in just a few hours. I had to use my step ladder to put the top on. So, I am more pleased with the product. On the same day, I purchased Item No. SKY1371. I finished that in less than an hour. I was so pleased to be able to give this gift to my neighbor, “But, the hoop that goes on the middle step, is missing. I believe the part number is 31#-30cm.
    Will you please tell me how I go about getting a replacement for the part?”
    I am so please with both for the pleasure of dealing with you. I thank God for giving me my 3 kids and now I just have to figure out how to get them to use it. LOL All in all I have to thank you for being so efficient.

  19. I believe with all the customers that you serve, and I once was in charge of a warehouse for about 7 years and I know that sometimes you run into some who are no going to be pleased no matter what you do. But, I’m very happy with your service.
    Thank you so much.

  22. Purchased a music box as a gift. I did not test it before wrapping it. When the recipient wound the key, we discovered that the spring was broken. Amazon has given me nothing but one run around after another. First, they said it was too late to return the item, but it was defective. After multiple tries, I finally got hold of someone who sent me a return label. I sent the item back and have proof it was received on March 24, 2015, which I sent to them. I have not yet received either a replacement or refund, and it is August 21, 2015. They make it very had to obtain an address to use for returns, too.

  23. I ordered 3 items from Amozon and item # 112-3352766-5809008 came by regular mail on October 2,2015 and the sprayer was not locked and approx. 1/2 the bottle was empty.
    Please advise what my next step is.

If you would like, I can send U a photo of it. I would love to have another one. Thank U, Liz Stieben.

  31. I ordered a pair of Sketcher boots from Amazon. They are too tight and want to return them for the next size up. There was no packing slip in the box and when I go to my e-mail to open the order, it directs me to my Amazon account and tells me I have no orders in the last 6 months. I have my order number from you. I also have the shipping confirmation and the boots are at my home. How can I return these boots and get a different size. Very frustrated.

  45. I purchased a pair of LED (as advertised) headlights for my 2014 1500 Ram. The ad said Original Equipment(OE). After receiving the headlights from Akkon I removed my pickup light and found out that the factory lights are halogen not LED. Due to LED and not halogen bulbs, the internal housing is different as well as the bulb socket. These are not Original Equipment replacements. This is false advertising. I’ve requested a refund and AKKON said that because I ordered the wrong item they will not pay for shipping. I have shipped them back via UPS at my cost of $43.70. * UPS tracking# 1Z940X340351490856 * Akkon order# 111-5807873-0167448 * RMA# 4172574

    correct this and let me know. Thank you

  53. I received an order of cat supplies, and the Canes flea & Tick collar which was supposed to be all natural was not, so I got my return label shipped back all 6 was credited, they received on the 23rd of July showing received on the 30th, 2nd lie, and said they received 5, shipping weight proves the 6. Now they are recharging me for one collar that they received, and will not reply to my proof of their receipt. They give u no way to contact them via telephone, and they need to start sending deliveries w/Shipping receipts. They have removed this falsely advertised product from their online store, long before they decided to falsely claim they received 5 in stead of the 6 collars that were returned. This is deceptive, and CONSUMERS need to BEWARE. Take pictures of your returns, and keep the additional return label tracking package sheet. Hold Amazon responsible. This is shockingly immoral. The Canes collars are listed as sobakens in the return information. Anyone’s cats and human eye irratants feel free to contact me. Amazon refuses to contact me regarding this injustice.
