Refund & Return Policy
Operational Policy & Refund/Return Policy
At Drop Out Store we have a 30-day return policy, which means you have 30 days after receiving your item to request a return.
To be eligible for a return, your item must be in the same condition that you received it, unworn or unused (meaning it can't have gone through the wash), with tags, and in its original packaging. You’ll also need the receipt or proof of purchase.
To start a return, you can contact us at email@example.com. If your return is accepted, we’ll send you a return shipping label, as well as instructions on how and where to send your package. Items sent back to us without first requesting a return will not be accepted and you will also need to pay for your own shipping fees.
You can always contact us for any return question at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We now offer a "self-return request" option. To be eligible for this, you will need to have an active account with us at Drop Out Store. An active account with Drop Out Store is defined as an account that is subscribed to our marketing database. Unsubscribed accounts cannot request a self-return as the consumer has opted out of receiving any update emails from us.
