What is your Refund Policy?Updated 4 months ago

VAPO will accept product returns and provide you with a replacement, repair or potentially a refund where:

  • The product/s don't do what they are meant to, or are defective, faulty or are not of acceptable quality
  • The product/s or services are different from their description
    • e.g., On packaging or in advertising
  • The product/s don't match the sample or model you were shown at the point of purchase
  • The product/s is not reasonably fit for a particular purpose you told the seller about and you can present your VAPO receipt or other adequate proof of purchase.

All of the above are carefully considered and measured, and the Vapo team decides a final answer regarding the customer's reason for Return at the time.

Please note: Usually, the sale is final when you buy a product or service unless the item breaches a guarantee under the Consumer Guarantees Act. Vapo will stand behind and support what is right for the customer under this act.

Vapo does not have to give you a refund or exchange if:

  • you change your mind
  • your circumstances change
  • you find cheaper products elsewhere

 Any Cosmetic Damage Must Be Reported Within 48 Hours of Delivery.

Please note: Vapo may require you to email/send pictures or videos of the damaged or defective item(s) before sending the item(s) back. We may also contact you with troubleshooting steps if we believe there is no fault but rather needs adjusting of settings or adjusted use or care of the product to rectify the issue presented. 

Return of unused and unopened products:

VAPO will not accept Returns of and/or issue any refund for purchases made other than through our website or one of our retail stores. The product must be shown to have been purchased at Vapo.

You have the right to withdraw from the order with VAPO and to return any new, unused item purchased from us for a refund without giving any reason up to fourteen (14) days following the receipt of the item purchased. To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform us of your decision to withdraw from the order by contacting the VAPO Customer Care team at [email protected] or speaking directly with any Store Manager or Sales Team member in any of our stores.

If you withdraw, VAPO will reimburse you all payments received from you for the item/s you wish to return, e.g., if it's a multiple item order and you wish only to return some unopened items. This reimbursement will exclude shipping costs and the Return of the new, unused and unopened item/s. Vapo must receive the Return within fourteen (14) days from the day you inform us of your decision to withdraw. You agree that you will be responsible for the cost of the return shipment if you elect to withdraw from the purchase agreement and return an item for a refund.

We will withhold reimbursement until we have received the purchased item. No refunds will be issued for items not returned within fourteen (14) days of notifying VAPO that you would like to return the items for a refund.

Because of the nature of our products, for sanitary and health and safety reasons, VAPO will not accept returns of batteries and/or E-Liquid. VAPO will issue refunds only for new and unused devices and products (excluding batteries and/or e-liquid). If the tamper-proof seal is broken, we will be unable to accept the returned product, and we will not issue a refund. 

Promotional Term & Conditions:

For returns on promotional items, all items included in the promotion need to be returned. When a promotional item included in the original transaction is not returned, the value of the promotional item will be deducted from the refund amount.

You will be responsible for shipping charges to us for non-defective returns. Shipping charges are NON REFUNDABLE.

If you decide to return a product and originally received free shipping, you will be responsible for the shipping cost associated with initial delivery. For example, if you received free shipping, but it costs us $5.99 to ship the product to you, we will deduct $5.99 from your refund. This may be higher or lower depending on the weight. ALL SHIPPING COSTS ARE NON REFUNDABLE.

Price Adjustment Disclaimer:

VAPO will honour price adjustment within 14 days from the date of purchase with proof of purchase; however, holiday specials, promotional sales, and clearance sales will be exempt. Any price adjustment will be issued via store credit.

Please note that VAPO may elect to return the product to the manufacturer's repair agent to determine the nature of the problem. If the product is determined to be faulty, not of merchantable quality, not fit for purpose, or does not match a description or sample, VAPO will offer a repair, exchange, or refund. If you cannot present your VAPO receipt or other acceptable proof of purchase, VAPO reserves the right not to offer a refund or exchange.

Where you seek a refund for any item purchased as part of a 'deal', VAPO may refund the price according to deal eligibility. No refund will be given on free items, and any refund amount may be recalculated if your Return no longer meets deal eligibility.
