Returns and refunds
Returned by the customer for exchange
We do not refund orders for buyer’s remorse or mistakes, however, size exchanges, products returned for exchange, or extended on credit are offered at your expense and discretion, meaning that you will be responsible for placing a new order for an updated size, color, etc., and cover all sums paid (including initial and re-delivery charges (if any)) in respect of the product in question.
If you would like to exchange for a product that costs more, we may require you to place another order or top-up the difference, including the shipping fees.
All goods returned for exchange or extended on credit must be returned in “salable” condition with original and undamaged packaging and labels. If the packaging is damaged when you return the product, we will have the right to use the same packaging to reship the replacement or new product to you.
You agree that we may not replace you with the products except under these circumstances and conditions.
If you submitted an address that is incorrect or is considered insufficient by the courier, the shipment may be returned to us. In this case, you will be responsible for the reshipment costs once we confirm and update the address with you.
To avoid this, please double-check the shipping address you input when creating your account or order. Mercating™ reserves the right to contact you via e-mail or phone call to confirm over if your shipping address is correct before the delivery of the products.
The courier may return to us the shipments that go unclaimed. In this case, you will also be responsible for reshipment costs. Please keep in mind that if you are not usually at home and there is no one else who can claim the shipments on your behalf, you can always change your shipping address in your account.
If tracking states your order was delivered even though you think you have not received it, Mercating™ cannot take responsibility and reship that order. It will be your responsibility to file any claim with a carrier for a lost shipment if their tracking indicates that the product was delivered. For packages lost in transit, we suggest you submit your claim within ten (10) days after the delivery date that was stated or confirmed by the courier. In such cases, any replacements would have to be at your expense.
Mercating™ will be under no obligation to provide you any refund if you wrongfully fail to take delivery of the products.
You have the right to cancel your order and get a refund if we do not process your order within ten (10) business days after you paid it, or if we have failed to ship the products you ordered within twenty (20) business days after the proposed delivery date.
If you believe we have not processed your order even though you already made your payment, or if you wish to cancel an order, please reach out to your End-to-end Support Team.
Given the nature of digital content, a refund or credit on a purchase is not granted unless one of the warranties mentioned in our “Limited Warranty” has been breached.
Mercating™ will assess refund or credit requests (if you have a Mercating™ account) on their merits, considering the digital nature of Mercating™ digital products and the type of product preview that was available before purchase.
Mercating™ will be under no obligation to provide you any refund or credit if:
- you have changed your mind about the product;
- you bought a product by mistake;
- you do not have the proper software version to use the product;
- you do not have enough expertise to use the product;
- you ask for goodwill; or
- you can no longer access the product because it was removed.
Mercating™ will provide you a new link for download in case the link you received was broken or damaged.
In the event of cancellation of a website, Mercating™ reserves the right to refund an appropriate portion of the amount you paid to order your website.
If you cancel the order even though the work has not started, the maximum refund guarantee will be 75% of the total balance of the deposit, and 50% if the order is canceled once the work has begun. You agree that the beginning of the work, in terms of products related to website development, will be from the moment you receive from us the first draft proposal (drawing/sketch) of your website.
Mercating™ will be under no obligation to provide you any refund, credit, or adjustments if you request to cancel the order when more than 50% of the work has been completed.
You will have the right to stop or continue the project until its conclusion; however, you acknowledge that you may need to cover additional expenses if any.
You can cancel your subscription anytime by contacting our customer support. If you purchased a subscription plan, and the contract is terminated under this clause, Mercating™ will refund you the subscription fees prorated from the next month of the date of termination to the date on which the subscription would have been due for renewal.
Mercating™ does not provide refunds on monthly subscription plans unless the subscription is canceled under the conditions of the cancellation clause stated above.
On termination of the contract for any reason, you will immediately pay Mercating™ all the outstanding unpaid invoices and interest. If you terminate or cancel your order before delivery, Mercating™ is under no obligation to offer a refund or to fulfill the order (although it may do so in Mercating™ sole discretion). On the contrary, if Mercating™ terminates or cancels your order before delivery, Mercating™ agrees to fulfill it only if you have paid it in full.
Products with incorrect information
Despite our reasonable efforts, the product may occasionally be listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information. If this is the case, Mercating™ may cancel or reverse a transaction, even after your payment has been completed and processed, and promptly arrange for any payment to be credited or refunded. If the price of the product turns out to be higher than the one you paid, you agree not to use the item unless you re-purchase it at the correct price by covering the difference.
For the avoidance of doubt in respect of defective or damaged goods, nothing in this policy gives you the right to cancel and get a refund regarding the products which, by their nature have been made to your specifications, and approved in writing by you.
Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an e-mail to notify you that we have received your returned item. In the same e-mail, we may also inform you about 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.
Refunds in promotional methods
If you purchased a product with credit, gift cards, or other seasonal or promotional methods available at Mercating™, you would get your refund the same way.
If the product were marked as a gift when purchased and shipped directly to you, you would receive a gift credit for the value of your return. Once the returned item is received, we will send you the corresponding gift certificate, whether by mail or e-mail. If the product was not marked as a gift when purchased, or the gift giver had the order shipped to themselves to give to you later, we will send a refund to the gift giver and he will find out about your return.
Any payment made to you will be made in US dollars, under the rules of the payment method currency conversion back to your local currency.
Late or missing refunds
If you have NOT received a refund yet, please recheck your bank account first. Then, contact your credit card company or bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted. If you have done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us.
Only regular priced products apply to this policy. Sale products cannot be refunded
