RETURN POLICY

 

If for any reason you are not satisfied with your artwork purchase, you may request for refund within 14 days of receiving your order and get a full refund. Shipping charges will not be refunded, and return shipment costs are the responsibility of the customer. If you do decide to return your purchased artwork, our return process is easy. Please follow these steps:
1. Send us an email to 
support@theartcocoon.com with your order number and your details.

2. We will need to verify if your request it's eligible, and we’ll send you an approval email for you to proceed with the shipment of the returned artwork. You will have three (3) days from the day we notify you to ship the artwork through a traceable method.

3. You will be responsible for the packaging, shipping using a traceable method and insurance fees. The artwork should be packed in its' original tube or box, along with any accompanied papers such as the Certificate of Authenticity. Make a note when you first receive your order, to open the package carefully making sure you can reuse it. If you’ve already disposed of the original packaging, you’ll be responsible for purchasing packaging materials to send the artwork back safely to the artist. You can request to send you our Packaging Guidelines instructions to help you.

4. Email us all the shipping details including the tracking number to support@theartcocoon.com.

5. We will issue an approval for the refund, only after the artwork is safely received in good condition by the Artist, along with all the accompanied papers initially sent e.g. the Certificate of Authenticity. The refund will take maximum ten (10) working days counting from the day the artwork is received safely and confirmed by the artist. The amount owed will be refunded to the original source of payment in the same currency (minus shipping costs and international customs fees, if any may apply).
