  • Accepting your return and offering a full refund. In this case, you will have to return the item in the condition in which it was received and the seller will issue you a full refund after they receive the item from you.
  • Offering a full refund without return. For this case, the seller is offering you a Lazada refund without return where the seller will issue you a full refund while you are allowed to keep the item.
  • Reach out to you in Chat where the seller requests more details on your return request and try to work things out via the “Chat” feature.
  • You can also find out that your Lazada returns were rejected by the seller because of insufficient proof in your return request, or when your claim is unreasonable to the seller.
