Cancellation & Returns

Cancellation

How do I cancel an order?

You can cancel your order online before the product has been shipped. Your entire order amount will be refunded.

In case the item you have ordered has been shipped but has not yet been delivered to you, you may still cancel the order online. Your refund will be processed once we receive the originally ordered item back from the courier.

Unfortunately, an order cannot be cancelled once the item has been delivered to you but it can be returned back for replacement.

In order to cancel an item in your order:

  •     Log into your PustakMandi account and go to the 'Order History' page.
  •     Identify the item you want to cancel and click on the corresponding 'View' link.
  •     In the detailed order page, you will see 'Return' links against each of the items in that order.
  •     Click on the 'Return' link, yo will see product return page with the form filled, indicate the reason for return as 'Other, please supply details', Enter comment as 'Cancel' in Cancel or Return and confirm cancellation by clicking on Submit.
  •     Once your cancellation/return request is created, we will ensure that the cancellation is processed as soon as possible.

**Please Note that cancel form and return form is same for orders. Kindly fill appropriate details.


How long will it take to process my cancel request?

Once you request the cancellation of item(s) in your order, it will take us a maximum of 1-2 business days to cancel the order and initiate a refund. You will be notified of the same by email.
