How long does the refund normally take?
The refund will usually be made within two weeks of receiving your return and will be done automatically depending on how you paid the origin order. In exceptional circumstances, it may take longer with the refund, but no longer than 30 days.
The money is credited to the card used when ordering. When you look for in your bank statement if your money has been credited to your bank account or not, you should go back and look already from the date the order was placed, as it often appears that the money is returned in connection with the order date.
