Online returns

I ordered something online and it has exceeded the time limit granted to be returned, so I'm told the order can't be accepted back, I'd usually just sent it back anyway and It wouldn't be an issue, but the return label is not include in the order and has to be requested, am I not at least entitled or an exchange or credit note?

is there a problem with the product?

If there isn't a fault and it's just a change of mind you are not entitled to anything (outside of the legal cooling off period)

As you've not mentioned it being faulty, I presume it's not.

You have 14 days to notify the business and a further 14 to return an item, after that unless they offer extended terms, you're entitled to nothing.

that 14 days only applies to good purchased in the EU. Thats not been specified.

if outside of the EU check the T's&C's on sellers website and use that as your guide for what you are entitled to/what their process is.

Very true, I assumed the OP would be purchasing from EU as they 'usually send stuff back'. But then again, who knows where the OP is, or even where the business is located as you rightly say....all too vague.

OP, if you're delivery address is in the EU read https://www.ccpc.ie/consumers/shopping/buying-online/

Buying from EU and external based businesses is covered.

Your legal right to return the goods has nothing to do with whether it's still on offer for sale by the retailer.

You haven't said that there is a fault with the item, despite prodding by multiple posters (posts #2 and #3). If there isn't, you don't have the right to return it once the cooling off period has expired.

This is an important fact on which your entitlements are based. If there is no fault in the item, returns entitlements for items bought in the EU are dependent on distance selling regs. If you are outside the timeframe allowed to return an item, you have no entitlement to return it.

One slight amendment - returns entitlements are the greater of:
  • distance selling regs
  • store policy
For example, adidas.ie allow for returns up to 30 days after you receive your order. They can't then turn around after 20 days and say you're outside the distance selling regs, they are also legally bound by their policy
