How can I return an item if I'm not a registered customer or placed an offline order?


If you have placed the order as a guest or just placed an offline order, you can start a return through the "Product Return Request"


Do I need to pay the shipping cost or customs for the goods returned or exchanged?


If your return is due to an error on our part (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.), FS will cover all the shipping cost. Otherwise, the return shipping cost should be borne by your own.
Usually, international orders may cause custom duties on import and export. If the items are returned from abroad, and the return is due to our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.), we will cover the custom duties.


How can I get the shipping fee if I'm qualified for free return/replace?


Usually you can save the shipping fees by printing shipping label we provide on "Return/Replace Review" page when the return/replace request is approved. If you don't find that shipping label, don't worry, we will refund you the shipping fees when we received the item(s).


When can I get the refund back?


Refund is usually processed on Tuesday and Friday after we received the returning items, and you will receive the money within 1 week, depending on the refund method that you use.


How would I receive the refund?


In most cases, we will refund you the returned items in the same way you paid for them. Also, You can contact your account manager to help you keep the money as "reserved amount" in FS and spend them for your future FS order.
