What is your returns Policy?

Here at Retro Camera Shop we professionally test and restore each and every camera that’s sold. However, with the nature of vintage electrical items, sometimes things go wrong that are completely out of our control. We will be happy to accept any returns for faulty or damaged items within 30 days of delivery. 

A request for a refund or exchange must be submitted within 30 days of receiving your order.

The item(s) must be in original condition with any of the original packaging included. Any items that appear to have been damaged or altered in any way will be refused. Please take care when handling cameras as we cannot accept any items that have been physically forced or damaged. The item(s) must be returned to us before the refund or exchange can be issued. The ability to fulfill exchange requests will be subject to the availability of cameras at the time at which the return is received for processed.

If you are having difficulties using your camera, please contact us via email where we can assist you in how to use it.

We do not accept refunds or exchanges for reasons such as :

• Change of mind or not liking your camera
• Not knowing how to use your camera
• Purchasing by accident

Cancellation Requests

If you wish to cancel your order, please send us an email within 6 hours of placing your order. Any cancellation requests made after 6 hours will receive only a store credit, not a cash refund.

Cancelled orders will incur a 2.7% + £0.25 charge on their total refund amount (customers from the US will also be charged an additional 2% charge on currency conversion fees).

PayPal and Credit Card refunds can take up to 5 business days to clear back into your account.

Are returns free?

The shipping cost of returning item(s) to us for an exchange or refund, is not covered or reimbursed by us. Buyer is responsible for the costs if the item(s) does not come back to us in its original condition or if the item is lost in the post so we please ask you use recorded delivery.
