Returns & Refunds
How do I cancel an order?
You can cancel your order online before the product has been shipped. Ifyou paid via a prepayment mode (credit card, debit card or net banking), then your entire order amount will be refunded.
Unfortunately, an order cannot be cancelled once the item has been shipped from our warehouses.
If you wish to cancel an order, please follow these steps:
Log into your Metal Masala account and go to the ‘My Orders’ page
Choose cancellation option and fill in the required details.
Once your cancellation request is created, we will ensure that the cancellation is processed as soon as possible.
How long will it take to process my cancellation request?
Once you create a cancellation request, 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.
If you opt for having the money transferred back to the source of transaction, it may take up to 7-10 business days for the respective banks to process the refund. Please get in touch with the banks directly in case of any delays post confirmation of cancellation/refund by metal-masala.com.
What are the modes of refund available after cancellation?
Except for Cash-on-Delivery transactions, refunds are made to the payment mode/account that was originally used to make the transaction. The refund shall be made in Indian Rupees only and be equivalent to the transaction payment received in Indian Rupees.
How long does it take for a refund to be reflected in my account?
Generally, returns across all payment options take between 5 to 7 working days (excluding holidays) to reflect in your account and sometimes the process takes 8 to 10 working days, depending on the associated bank.
If the payment is not reflected within the estimated time, please reach out to us for your ARN/RRN numbers and then contact your respective bank.
Please note that refunds can only be made to the original card / account only and not through any other mode of payment.
Can I request for a replacement?
Our replacement policy allows you to request a replacement device at no additional cost if the device received by you is defective or is not as ordered. However, size-related replacement is not accepted.
If you find that the package is tampered, please do not accept the item and hand the package back to the delivery person before signing the POD.
You will be eligible to get a replacement if:
Our examination of the device shows a defect that qualifies the device for replacement
A replacement request is made within 5 (days) days of receipt of the delivery of the order
The device has been received in its unused, original condition; and
The device has been received in the original product packaging along with supporting documentation such as receipt or proof of purchase, and any freebies obtained along with the original product.
Please note that replacement is subject to availability of a suitable replacement.
Please note that this policy will not cover routine product wear and tear, damage incurred during use or any other forms of damage and will not, in any event, entitle you to a refund, whether partial or otherwise.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for replacement issues.
Pre-Orders are orders for titles not in stock. You can place pre-orders without payment, until you receive an availability confirmation from me. At this moment a minimum non refundable advance of 50 % of the order amount has to be paid as a booking advance. Any balance payment has to be made on arrival of the titles in India.
Please note that I am not responsible for any delays from the label, shipping agency, customs, etc.
