Any payment already made will be refunded on receipt of the goods (less any return Shipping Costs, if applicable. This will be no more than that already charged for shipping the order). Any refund will be processed within 14 days from when the order is received back to us, but will usually be much quicker. Your rights to return goods are protected under the The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, which can be found at http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2013/3134/contents/made.


The following items cannot be returned, exchanged or refunded:

Further information on our Gift Cards is detailed below:


Online Gift Card Codes

When purchased, you will be required to choose the value of the Gift Card Code, the name of the recipient and their e-mail address. The recipient will receive an e-mail containing the Gift Card code that can then be used on www.abakhan.co.uk only. To use the Online Gift Card Code, the recipient must enter the Online Gift Card Code in the field available on the Shopping Basket page. If the value of the order is higher than the balance remaining on the Online Gift Card, the balance of the order will have to be paid by PayPal or Card during the Checkout process. If the value of the order is less than the balance on the Online Gift Card, then the reduced balance will remain on the Online Gift Card Code for future use. If for any reason a refund is made on an order, the value of the proportion of the order paid by Online Gift Card Code will be added back to the Online Gift Card Code balance. It is possible to check the Status and balance of Gift Card Codes at any time within "My Account" if you have Registered, and on the Shopping Basket page.


Retail Store Gift Voucher

There are a range of Values available for purchase. When purchased, the Gift Vouchers will be sent by Royal Mail to the Delivery Address on the order. The recipient will be able to use the Gift Voucher in any of the Abakhan Fabrics, Hobby & Home Stores (excluding online) which can be found on our Stores Page.
