We may deny any return or exchange if it fails to meet our return criteria.

To return a product eligible for return or exchange under our return policy:
- Please visit "My eBay" to initiate the return process and retrieve your return shipping label no later than thirty (30) days after the date of purchase.
- We will examine the items when received and, if they are eligible for return or exchange under our return policy, Microsoft Store on eBay will arrange for an exchange or issue a credit to the same form of payment you used to purchase the item and send you a return receipt e-mail.
*Please note that we do not cross-ship any items, even if you feel you may have ordered incorrectly or received the wrong product.
To qualify, all products must be returned with reasonable care having been taken (such as must not show wear or damage, and must be in a condition that permits us to resell them). All returns and exchanges must be accompanied by the original documentation, instruction manuals, registration, parts and components (including cables, controllers, and accessories) and the original manufacturer packaging. If you are returning software you must also include all media and product keys. Failure to include such items may prevent or delay your refund or exchange.
Microsoft reserves the right to deny any return if it fails to meet the return criteria and conditions. A restocking fee of ten percent (10%) may be deducted from the refund amount for hardware products (such as non-defective computers, printers, and Xbox returns). Refunds will be made in the same method as payment. When you make a qualifying return, we will credit the full amount, less the original shipping and handling charges, if any, and we will process your refund within approximately one week from receipt of your return shipment.
