Your right to return products if you change your mind

The following exemptions apply: Perishable goods such as all chilled (meat, dairy etc.) and all frozen products, baby and toddler food and gift cards cannot be returned or exchanged. Sale and non sale items cannot be refunded if they were marked as "short dated" in the product description.

Your right to return products that are faulty or not as described.
If your products are faulty or not as described, you have a right to receive a full refund for those products if you notify us within the return period. Our return period lasts fourteen (14) days. If 14 days have gone by since you received your goods, or the expiry date on a product has passed, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange. 

Alternatively, if your product is faulty or not as described and a period of more than 14 days and less than six months has elapsed, then you are entitled to request a replacement. Replacements are subject to availability. If your products cannot be replaced, then you are entitled to request a refund within six months from the date that you received the products. We reserve the right to reject refund requests which relate to goods which have been damaged by customers while being used or not correctly cared for.

We only replace items if they are defective or damaged prior to us packing your order.

Our refund process
Once your complaint or return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your complaint or returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund. 

If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days. 

We will refund your product as quickly as possible to your original payment method. Please note you will need to email us at shop@magaza-balkanfood.co.uk if your original payment method has expired to make alternate arrangements.

Late or missing refund
If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again. Next, contact your bank or credit card company. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted as explained above.
