Customers returning product/-s from any county that belongs to EU, can choose one of the two ways to do it. First one is to return the parcel with national post office service by simply preparing the parcel and posting it in your local post office, with standard mail. In that case we cannot know in advance what will be the price of return. Usually the time needed to deliver the parcel back to us in that case is up to 9 working days.
