Dema Return Policy

Dema offers a streamlined return process, primarily managed by individual sellers, who usually provide a 30-day return window and facilitate initiating returns, getting a return label along with guidelines in your Dema app corresponding to each order in the Orders section. While Dema doesn't mandate return policies, we do offer best practice guidelines to sellers. Once a return is initiated and the item is received, allow up to 3-5 business days for your refund to end back in your Dema wallet.

Some items such as health/personal products are non-returnable. Refunds are generally issued to your original payment method. Special rules apply to custom items, bulk and international orders. Additional fees, like return shipping and restocking fees, may apply depending on the seller's policy. For electronic returns, ensure all personal data is removed. Return items should be in the same condition as received.
