CANCELLATION, REFUND, RETURNS & EXCHANGE
At Sandhya Manne Studio, we believe in helping our customers have a fantastic shopping experience, and therefore have a liberal cancellation, exchange & returns policy.
We genuinely want to keep our customers happy with their purchase and believe that that’s the only way to spread awareness about handcrafted products. We work with handcrafted material and since the making process is by hand, slight aberrations in the artwork are bound to happen and cannot be considered as “damaged.”
While we photograph only in natural light and try our best to make sure that the colors shown on our website are accurate, actual colors will vary. The precise color of the product may vary due to color variability in computers, laptops, screen monitors, mobiles, tablets and or other devices. We have no liability if colors of the products do not match their display on the site. The product colors depicted should only be used as an approximate guide. Because all our products are hand made, please make sure that you understand that color variations are possible from our photography of the actual products.
- If you must cancel an order, please do so by email within 3-4 hours of placing the order as otherwise, the order may have been shipped or sent for production depending upon the product ordered.
- If you cancel your order before your product has shipped or has been sent for production, we will refund the entire amount.
- Orders cannot be cancelled once they are shipped or have started production.
- Orders cannot be cancelled due to color variations.
In case you are eligible for a refund, the refund will be processed in the same mode that the payment is received within 10-12 working days from the date of cancellation of order.
- All Online Payments will be refunded through our payment gateway to the same source from which the payment was made to us. The payment gateways typically take 10-12 days to credit your account.
