We do not refund on sale items, outlet or discounted items during promotional periods (unless faulty), so please choose carefully. We will happily exchange the item for something of the same value.
Returns with Afterpay
If you have purchased with Afterpay we will happily accept your return. The payment plan will be cancelled if we receive your return before the first instalment is due. – This means you will not have to pay a thing.
If the first instalment has already been made when you return the items back to us we can cancel the rest of your payment plan and refund the initial payments you have made.
If you wish to return certain products from your order, we will remove these items from your payment plan. The original payment instalments will remain the same however the final payments will be less or cancelled depending on the return amount. You can log into your Afterpay account at any time to review your payment status.
Please contact our customer care team at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have encountered a faulty item. Please include clear photos of the damaged product and proof of purchase.
If your item is deemed faulty, the Academy Brand will do its best to replace the item or issue a refund. The Academy Brand will provide you with a return shipment label if the item is deemed faulty.
Please note all faulty items purchased outside of the academy brand must be reported and returned to the same store. This is due to different returns and faulty procedures.
