Personalised items are non-returnable (unless they are defective). Some items are non-returnable for hygiene reasons. Please note that this does not affect your statutory rights.

Items need to be in the original packaging where it forms part of the goods, for example, boxed garments and gift items. Where an item has a return policy swing ticket attached, it must still be attached and undamaged upon return and sent to El Capitan Boutique at your own cost and risk.

You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the items while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, El Capitan Boutique may have a right of action against you for compensation. This applies to all items that are returned.

Once a refund has been issued you will receive a confirmation email detailing the amount which has been refunded and the item(s) El Capitan Boutique has received back. If a refund or reimbursement is payable to you, El Capitan Boutique will transfer the money using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.

If your purchase was partially paid for on Gift Card and a refund is payable to you, your Gift Card will be refunded up to the cards original value, and any outstanding balance owed after this will be refunded via the other payment method originally used for your purchase. If you no longer have the Gift Card used to purchase the returned item(s), El Capitan Boutique will issue you with a new Gift Card to the value payable to you up to the amount of the cards original value.

El Capitan Boutique aims to process all returns as quickly as possible and you should receive confirmation of this within a week of having returned the item.
