WTR HUB Return Policy

Applicability of Return Policy
We always encourage our customers to raise as many queries (be it with respect to size, colour, quantity, delivery, etc.) before placing the order. We pride on the fact that out of thousands of order we have fulfilled only about .01% have been returned.
2 Day Information Policy
Any issue related to the product (such as size/defect, etc.) or for items no longer needed should, the customer is required to inform us within 2 days of receipt of the item. The return policy will be applicable only if this requirement is met. Return policy is applicable only for items shipped by us and not for self-picked from us.
To keep the transaction transparent we use courier services with proper tracking facility to ensure that the parcels are delivered on time and to know the exact delivery date.
For items self-picked (including agents) from us, we do'not accept returns for any reason (s) as we allow our customers and their agents to check the item (s) thoroughly at the time of delivering the item (s).
Items Shipped by WTR damaged During Transit/Defective Items
We perform stringent quality checks on each item before dispatching to avoid any inconvenience to our customers. In random cases, we also take images of the product sent by us.
However, in a very rare of the cases, where the item shipped by us is damaged during transit or a defective product is shipped, we will provide a free replacement of the product if the issue is communicated to us within 24 hours of the receipt of the item.
If the product is no longer required, we will process complete refund of the “Cost of the Item including Shipping Charges”. We might ask for images of the defect/damage and check if it is caused by usage or during transit before processing refund.
If we request for a return of the item, the return shipping charges will be borne by us.
Shipment and Delivery
Based on your location, delivery time may vary. It can take upto 3 to 5 days (working days) and even more for the parcel to delivered from the date of shipment (based on your location). The shipment is generally done within 48 working hours from the date of order. For Instance: If you have placed an order on 15th of August (which is a holiday), your shipment can take place on any day on or between 16th to 17th August. In exceptional cases, where more additional information is required to process the order, the shipment will take place only after such details have been provided by the buyer to us.
Delivery is "Out of Our Control" as it depends on the operation of the courier companies (which are third party service providers). We, in no, can way influence their functioning. As such we cannot provide any specific delivery date. Customers are requested to place orders only if they have sufficient time in hand. In case of urgent delivery, we request you to please contact us before placing the order and making the payment. Any request for faster delivery after placing and shipment of order will not be entertained.

An order can be cancelled only till the time it has been shipped. Order once shipped cannot be cancelled. For shipped parcels, the customer is required to accept the parcel at the time of delivery and reship the parcel back to us at their own expenses. The refund will be processed only after we have received our item back and has been inspected by our team.
The return shipping charges will have to be paid by the customer and we will also adjust the shipping expenses and refund processing charges that will have to paid by us to our courier partners and transaction processing partner.

Do I have to Pay any Charges If I Cancel An Order for Which Payment has been Made (but Has Not been Shipped) by Me Using Debit Card/Credit Card/Internet Banking/E-Wallets/UPI?
If you request cancellation after placing the order which is yet to be shipped and you have made the payment using any of the above means, we will be deducting the cancellation charges which is 2.5% of the order value (cost +shipping charges) including GST. However, if you have made the payment to our bank account, you will not be charged any cancellation fees.
Why do You Deduct Cancellation Charges if the Order Has been Cancelled by Me?
When you make payment through Credit Card/Debit Card/Internet Banking/E-Wallets etc., the transaction is processed by our online transaction processing partner (Payumoney) which charges us a flat commission for every transaction irrespective of whether the order is processed or not. However, if we have to cancel an order because of non-availability of stock or any reason for which we are responsible, than you will not be charged any cancellation fees.
