Damaged Goods Policy

In the unfortunate event that your received goods appear damaged due to external factors beyond either our or your jurisdiction, we urge you to promptly contact us at support@apparition.co.za. Please provide accompanying photographs showcasing both the damaged item(s) and its packaging. This will aid us in initiating a claim process with our partnered couriers and facilitate a resolution.

Order Cancellation

You have the right to cancel your order within a 12-hour window from the time of purchase, without providing any specific reason. Upon cancellation within this period, you will receive a full refund processed within 2 to 3 business days.

Refunds & Return Policy

  1. Cancellation Eligibility: Refunds are permissible only if the order cancellation occurs within the aforementioned 12-hour timeframe and before the shipment of the product. Post this period or once the product is dispatched, refunds will not be honoured.

  2. Post-Shipment Cancellations: If you opt to cancel your order post its dispatch, you bear the responsibility for the return shipping costs.

  3. Damaged Goods: Should you notice any damage or manufacturing defect in your product within 7 days of purchase, please provide us with photographic evidence of the said defect. Upon verification, you can choose between receiving a replacement item or a refund. While returning the damaged item, the shipping costs will be borne by you, but we will cover the shipping charges for the replacement.

  4. Return Shipment Liability: For returned items, we recommend using an insured and trackable shipping method. We do not hold liability for goods damaged or misplaced during the return transit. To process a refund, we must receive the returned goods or evidence of successful return delivery.

Return Guidelines

  • You have a 7-day window from the purchase date to identify any manufacturing defects or faults in the received product.
