6. How do I return an item
Marula UK hopes that you will be delighted with your order. However, if for any reason you are not completely satisfied we are happy to offer a refund, exchange or replacement on all goods returned to us within 14 days of your receipt of goods provided they are in their original, unopened and unused condition.
Please read our Returns Policy in full before returning an item as certain exemptions may apply. Please follow the 3 steps outlined below to return the goods to Marula UK:
STEP 1 - Completing the Necessary Documentation
We will then send you a Returns Note which will need to be completed and returned with all the required information with the Product.
Please Note that we cannot accept returned goods that we reasonably believe have been used. If you choose to return items for reasons other than defects in the goods, or incomplete, or incorrect orders, delivery charges are not refundable and you will be required to arrange and pay for the return of the items to us.
STEP 2 - Returning the Product
Goods must be returned to us in their original condition to our distribution centre within 14 days of delivery. Please ensure that the returned parcel is properly secured to protect against damage, and that you have enclosed within the returned parcel your completed Returns Note.
Please ensure you obtain Proof of Postage when you return goods to us. You should retain your Proof of Postage in the unlikely event that we do not receive the returned parcel. We cannot accept liability for returned goods lost in transit.
Please Note: If you cancel your order but do not return such goods to us within 14 days, we shall be entitled to collect such goods from you and charge you for the direct costs of collecting the goods. You should note these charges (which may be deducted from a refund) are likely to exceed the cost of you returning the goods. Until such goods are returned to us, you are obliged to exercise all reasonable care to store the cancelled goods safely and in appropriate conditions.
STEP 3 - Processing the Refund, Replacement or Exchange
We will process your return as quickly as possible and will notify you by email once your refund, replacement or exchange has been processed.
If you have chosen a refund, we will refund the price paid by you for the goods (exclusive of the initial delivery charge) no later than thirty (30) days of receiving your returned goods, provided that you have returned the goods to us in their original condition at our distribution centre within 14 days from delivery.
Please Note: All goods will be inspected on return and in such circumstances that the item is in unsuitable condition, we will notify you that no refund will be available and you will be responsible for arranging for such goods to be returned to you within 28 days of our notification.
By law, customers located in the European Union also have the right to withdraw from the purchase of an item within 7 working days of the day after the date the item is delivered if you send us a notice of cancellation in writing and return the goods to us in their original, unopened and unused condition. Your statutory rights remain unaffected.
7. My return was processed but I wasn't refunded my delivery charge
We will usually refund you what you paid for the goods but not the delivery charge except in cases where the order was cancelled under the UK Distance Selling Regulations or if the order is defective, incomplete or incorrect.

However, some of our most popular products will run out very quickly so you do need to be quick and get it before someone else does.
We are pleased to be able to offer 95% availability of all of our product range. If an item is temporarily unavailable it will show as temporarily out of stock on the shopping pages.
However, some of our products are seasonal exclusives or promotional offers and once they are out of stock they will most likely not return.
