At Alterist, we are passionate about reducing the amount of impact fashion has on the environment. For this reason, we ask that you refer to our sizing chart, read the product description properly and message the seller and ask them sizing questions prior to purchase, as this will help to minimise the CO2 emissions that come with returns.
If you do need to return or exchange an item, the seller you purchased your order from is the best person to help you. Each seller on Alterist manages their own orders and makes decisions about cancellations, refunds, and returns. This information will typically be specified on their profile.
Please note that sellers aren’t required to accept returns, exchanges, or provide a refund. They will state on their profile if they choose to accept refunds or not.
If the seller is willing to accept returns, be sure to settle on the below details in a message before returning the item:
Where you should send the return
What time frame does the seller wish to receive the return
Who will be responsible for the cost of return shipping, if not written in the shop's policies
What shipping method to use
If the seller doesn’t allow refunds or returns, you may be able to open a case with Alterist.
