Here are the steps you will want to take:

  1. Contact VAPO via the Contact page. Please get approval from the agent to send the item back before sending the item. We will send you a return ticket. We may email you after you submit the Return in any attempts of troubleshooting.
  2. Repackage the item including all original parts, packing materials, instructions, etc. Within reason this means that everything must be returned exactly as it was sent to you. If you do not have the original packaging we will NOT accept this as a return. Poor repackaging or the return of damaged merchandise could result in refusal of your return and loss of any refund or replacement item. DO NOT send items back in regular envelope, this is not sufficient packaging and can cause items to be lost in the mail as the envelopes are not tracked. Padded parcel bags are a must.
  3. Include a copy of the original receipt in the package.
  4. If you are to receive a refund, it will be issued by VAPO when the returned item has been received in satisfactory condition. Refunds will be processed within 10 business days of receiving the items. And will be applied directly to the method that was used to make a purchase.
