If you receive an order and you believe there is a shortage please take all of the items out of the box, and go through each item separately to ensure that items haven’t stuck together or slipped inside another item. You should advise us in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org within 24 hours of receipt; failure to do so will result in us being unable to process your claim.
Please note www.discountfootballkits.com weight check all orders that leave our premises, so we are able to check to ensure the order was despatched complete. As part of your claim you may be required to report theft from the box to the police and then supply to us the crime number, police station and officer dealing with the crime. All suspected fraudulent claims for shortages will be reported by us to the Police for further investigation. We have introduced this procedure due to a number of fraudulent claims. The police have prosecuted those who have made fraudulent claims.
You are able to return items but you must complete the returns form on our website within 7 days of receiving goods to entitle you for free returns. If the form is not completed within this time period then you may be subject to an administration charge, which is calculated as a minimum of £5 or 15% of the total value of the returned goods. No returns will be accepted after 14 days of you receiving goods.
However, please note there is a strict no returns policy on the below items:
- All base layer shorts/bottoms due to them being an under wear product
- Personalised goods
- Clearance items
Once you submit the returns form you will receive an email from one of our customer service representatives within 5 working days to confirm whether your request has been accepted. If accepted you will be given a returns authorisation number and the procedure to complete the return. Goods cannot be returned without a returns authorisation number and failure to comply with this policy will result in your return being refused and any costs incurred will be your responsibility.
Once accepted for return, you must ensure all items being returned are received by us within 6 working days of you receiving the authorisation number. Any items that are received after this time period will be refused and you will be subject to the delivery charge to have the items sent back to you.
All goods that are accepted for return must be complete and in an unused condition, the product must be undamaged and in the original packaging. If garments are sent back without tags or bags you may be subject to a restock fee which will be confirmed by one of our customer services team.
If an item is deemed to be faulty then we shall reimburse postage costs to a maximum of £7.50. If the return is going to cost more than this please email email@example.com and we can advise further.
However, if garments are being returned for a refund/exchange because they are unsuitable/unwanted/wrong size then customers are responsible for any costs related to the return of items, along with the subsequent delivery charge to have the replacement(s) dispatched where an exchange has been requested.
The return of goods is the customer’s sole responsibility and we encourage all customers to use an insured and tracked service to send items back.
We never recommend sizes for children because as you can appreciate one 7 year old may be a completely different shape and size to another 7 year old. Therefore, instead we simply advertise garments based on their chest/waist size for customers to select from. We also highly recommend ordering sample sizes before placing larger orders, especially for adidas garments which vary greatly in size by style and are strictly non-returnable unless part of a sample order.
We do allow customers to place sample orders so that the correct sizes/colours can be ordered. You would simply need to place an order as normal for the sample garments you require. Once you receive the garments, you would then have 7 days to fill in our online returns form (please see relevant section).
Once accepted for return, you must then ensure goods are back with us within 6 working days of you receiving the authorisation number. Any items that are received after this time period will be refused and you shall be subject to the delivery charge to have the items sent back out to yourself.
You will be refunded for the garments but not for the delivery cost.
