The 30-day money back guarantee is separate and in addition to any of the Consumer’s legal rights to cancel including the right set out in the Maplin Terms and Conditions. In line with The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations, we will accept items back for a refund refund as long as you inform us of your decision to cancel within 14 calendar days from the day after the delivery of goods.

If goods are being returned by post, return postage charges must be met by the Customer. Maplin may refuse the return of an item if it is not accompanied by a returns authorisation number. Please contact our customer service team to obtain a returns number before returning the product. Any returns authorisation number must be clearly displayed on the return packaging and we ask all reasonable care is taken to ensure the goods are suitably packaged. We also would suggest a proof of postage is obtained when returning goods to us.
