Returns Policy

Returns at Catipilla are simple and straightforward.

If you wish to return any item for any reason, you can do so within 30 days of delivery. We only request that the item is returned to us in pristine condition so please ensure that you package the item securely for the return journey. We suggest using the same packaging that the product arrived in. 

If you wish to return a product, simply send an email to [email protected] and we’ll be in touch to confirm the correct return address. We will also ask you the reason for the return so that we can continually learn from our customers’ experience.

Once we receive your return, we will refund you for the full product amount plus any shipping charge that you originally paid for the product(s). You are responsible for the cost of returning the product(s) to us unless the return is due to a fault of our making.

And that is our return policy in a nutshell, unless you actually want to read all of the legal stuff below as well?

We will need to know your order number, the item you want to return and the reason for return.

You will need to obtain a proof of postage receipt when you return your item to us. Proof of postage does not cost anything but without it we may not be able to process your refund or replacement in the rare event that your item is lost in transit.

Will You Refund My Postage Costs If I Return An Item?

We are more than happy to refund postage costs to return an item where the return is required due to our error. For instance:

a) If we sent you the wrong item

b If the item is damaged or faulty

We will not refund postage costs to return items which are unwanted or no longer required. These costs will need to be covered by you, again we recommend using a delivery service that insures you for the value of the goods.

We will not refund postage costs to return any item due to reported damage or fault where no error was found in the testing process. Costs of posting the item back to you will depend on the item and will be communicated to you after the testing process has been completed.


If you are not satisfied with the way in which we have handled the return, replacement or repair of any item, we want to hear about this. Our aim is to resolve the matter for you and ask that you please contact [email protected] who will be pleased to help.
