Refund Policies

When you return an item, your refund and how your refund is issued may differ based on the condition of the item, how long you’ve had the item, and how the item was purchased.

How Skippers Calculates Refund Amounts

If you return an item, and the reason for return is not a result of an error, the  cost of return shipping will be deducted from your refund. If you choose the U.S. Postal Service option, the amount that will be deducted from your refund is displayed. If you choose the self return option, you’ll pay the cost charged by the carrier selected.
