Returning faulty products
The products sold to you must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. This means that (having regard to the expected lifespan of the product you ordered) you are entitled to the following:
Up to 30 days: if the products you received are faulty, then you can get a full refund (this refund will include costs of delivery and return).
Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do.
If you are ending a contract for a reason set out below, the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided. You may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons for which you can cancel a contract are:

Products must be returned in their original packaging with the Returns Reference Number, completed returns form, order number and your contact details within the parcel.

Please send your return items to: Qudo Baby, PO Box 224, BORDON, GU35 5ET
When we may make deductions from refunds
We may reduce your refund of the price (excluding delivery costs) to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. You may remove goods from their original packaging to inspect them but the goods must be returned to us in their original packaging in order to obtain a full refund. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer. For example, if we offer delivery of a product within 3-5 days at one cost but you choose to have the product delivered within 24 hours at a higher cost, then we will only refund what you would have paid for the cheaper delivery option.
How we refund you
Refunds will be processed once we receive your returned product/s and have established the reason for return.
Any refunds to you will be made to the debit or credit card account used for placing and paying for your order. Please allow up to 14 days for any refund to be processed and to reach your account.
Please be aware that we reserve the right to withhold amounts for product/s which are damaged on return to us, or have not been returned in the original packaging.
If you wish to return a product/s after your right to cancel has expired, and you return it to us in a new, unused and resalable condition with its original packaging within 2 months of the date when you received it, we will refund the price paid of the product/s, but not the delivery charges.
If you return the product/s in a new and unused condition but without the original packaging, then we will give you a refund of the price after making a deduction for our reasonable costs for the provision of new packaging.
