Returns and exchanges for online purchases
Before you return a Duqaa product, please take a moment to understand how our products are made. Most of our products are handcrafted by traditional craft persons in rural India, resulting in each product being unique and slightly different from each other.
However, if for some reason you are dissatisfied with the product, you are entitled to return it within 3 days of delivery for free. Please be noted that the product must be in good condition and resalable, and that you should contact our customer service before making a return.
You are allowed to make a cancellation and get a full refund before production; after production, there will be a 20% restocking fee. No cancellation is accepted after shipment. We will confirm with you your order and shipping address before production. If you are not available to answer our calls or do not respond to our email within 24 hours, your order will be considered as confirmed.

We will issue a return authorization for the items you wish to exchange, and process an order for the new product. You will be charged for the new item, whose payment will be paid back to you once the old item is returned to us. In order to begin an exchange, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Damaged and Defective Merchandise
If you receive an item that has been damaged during shipment or has a manufacturing defect, please contact us and we will work with you to solve the problem.
All damaged or defective products must be reported within 3 days of delivery with photo proof. Please retain all original packaging and documentation, as they will be needed to process your replacement.
Items returned as damaged or defective but are found to be in working condition after inspection will be subject to a 25% restocking fee and deduction of round trip shipping charges.
Shipments arriving via freight must be inspected prior to acceptance. Any damage, no matter how minor, should be noted with the shipper. Signing for a package and failing to note damage to the packaging will result in the customer assuming responsibility for any damaged merchandise.
Many of our products are shipped unassembled and require assembly upon delivery. If one or more of the individual parts are damaged or defective, they can typically be replaced in a few days. Replacement parts and glass will be provided without additional charges. If you wish to return an item that can be repaired with replacement parts or glass, the standard return policy, including shipping deductions, will apply.

1. Photos of the front and back sides of the packaging box
2. Photo, video, screenshot of the defective item
3. Photo, video, screenshot of the defect or defective area
Our sales manager will communicate with you for further information.
