Returns Germany

In order to return your parcel, please follow the instruction concerning returns from Germany.

Pack up a shipment so that the content will be secured. Use a rigid box adjusted to the size of the content, for example original packaging. Do not use damaged boxes and ensure that the box is solid enough to carry the weight of a shipment. If there are empty spaces in a used box fill it with the bubble foil or creased paper to protect the content.

Remove all old barcode labels or make them non-readable because old barcodes might interrupt the operational return process. Stick the return label on the box, preferably on the biggest side of the box.
