I've changed my mind and no longer want the item I ordered: If you've changed your mind you can return your item as long as it's unopened, in mint condition and return within 14 days of delivery. The shipping for the return will also be at the cost of the buyer. Once we've received the item and our returns team confirms everything checks out OK, you will receive an account credit which can be used to purchase a replacement item.

The item I received is not the item I ordered: Provided the item is unopened and in mint condition we'll replace the item or provide a full refund. Please arrange to return the item to Local Kiwi Deals for assessment.


I ordered an incompatible item: If you ordered a product designed to work with another product, and upon opening the product you discover they are incompatible, Local Kiwi Deals will accept a return if:

  • there was an error on Local Kiwi Deals’ website or product description
  • the product description lacked information that would reasonably be required to determine compatibility

If the incompatibility of products could be reasonably determined by reading the product description, Local Kiwi Deals may accept the return back at its sole discretion. In some cases a 20% restocking fee may apply and for the product to be in a resealable condition.
