Returns & Exchanges
Please return goods of unacceptable quality to us and we shall either repair, replace the same, or refund the purchase price you paid.
If you are simply unhappy with a product then while we have no obligation to, we’ll do what we can do to alleviate the problem.
At Shishaglass.co.nz, we understand that the process of returning an item is often an aggravating drawn-out enterprise. Uncooperative customer service and delays can make you feel scammed. At Shishaglass.co.nz online store we aim to do it better, with a great return policy that’s second to none in our field.
Although we prefer to receive our products, back in original packaging mint condition and clean, we understand this isn’t always realistically possible. Other than the exceptions noted below, we’ll gladly accept your return either way.
Also at Shishaglass.co.nz, we don’t charge any fees for ‘restocking’ or ‘administrative processing’ or any other excuse that can be dreamed up. You may return products within 14 days of receipt of your purchase.

- pay for the return shipment;
and we will handle the rest as quickly as we can; whether you want a replacement, a new product or a refund of the purchase price.

- most scales do not include calibration weights – please check carefully if you want to purchase scales with weights or purchase 100g or 200g calibration weights separately;
- not all scales come with batteries;
- scales cannot be exchanged after use due to a change of mind or the like, so please choose carefully;
