Gearbest secure payment methods

What is GearBest’s return address?

All your returns must first be authorized by GearBest customer service. Once your order is authorized, the RMA status will be updated to "Waiting For A Return". Then an RMA form containing the return address will appear online for you to return your product.

Please download and print the RMA form, and put it in your returned package.

Note:

● If you cannot print the RMA form, please add a note in the package including the product name, order number, SKU number and the return reason. (This will allow us to identify your product and contact you when we receive it). Returned items without any RMA form or note in the package will not be accepted.

● If the product you are returning is fragile, please pack it securely with protective material such as foam to avoid damage in the shipping process.  


Is there a deadline for sending back my return item?

Yes. Please return the item within 7 days after you have received an RMA authorization. Once you have shipped the item back to us, do not forget to enter the tracking number online and make sure it is correct before submitting. This will enable us to track the returned item.

Once you have submitted the tracking number online, the RMA status will be updated to "Waiting To Receive Your Package".

The exact shipping time of the returned product depends on the shipping methods and the return address.

Once GearBest receives and checks your returned package, the RMA status will go into " RMA Processing". Then, GearBest customer service will deal with either an exchange, refund, repair, or compensation according to what has been  agreed on in the ticket.

How long will it take for the status to be updated from "RMA Processing" to "Completed"?


It depends on the RMA type agreed in the ticket:


RMA Type Time Frame
  Return for refund   48 hours  to PayPal Accounts;
  10-14 business days to Credit Card Accounts.
  Return for exchange   3-5 business days for the items in stock;
  7-15 business days for the items out of stock.
  Return for compensation (Points or   Coupons)   1-2 business days
  Return for repair   7-14 business days

Now, let’s show you more details about the table. 


Return for refund

After the refund has been applied, the RMA status will be updated to "Completed". The ticket will tell you about your refund details: Refund ID, Refund Amount, Refund Time.

After the refund has been applied, the RMA status will be updated to Completed 

The length of the refund time depends on the payment system you are using. Normally, it will take about 48 hours refunding to PayPal Accounts and 10-14 business days to Credit Card Accounts.  


Return for exchange

Will I pay for the return shipping fee?

For 7 day DOA (Dead on Arrival) situations, GearBest will reimburse you the return shipping cost, or you can choose to receive a full refund.

Note: 7 day DOA situation means your item arrives damaged or malfunctioning. If it happens to you, you can apply for an RMA within 7 days after receiving the product. Then, return the product to us, and we will send you a replacement free of charge.  

Otherwise, the shipping fee for returning products will be paid by customers.
