RETURN

Below we give you recommendations for your return.

Returns from Germany

For returns to us, you can use the return label provided. If you do not have a printer, the DHL delivery person can also bring the return label with him or it can be printed out for you in branches or at most Packstations* after you have ordered an individual collection on the DHL website. This makes returns very easy for you.

Return due to revocation:
Your right of withdrawal can be found in the revocation instruction required by law. In addition, we offer you the option of declaring the revocation in the shop under "My account" and there for the respective order under "Order history". There you can also request the return label that will be sent to you. Please print it out and stick it on the return shipment. Alternatively, you can have the return label printed by DHL. You can read more about this under "Mobile returns".

If you declare your cancellation by other means, you can also subsequently request a return label from our customer service department at service@elabnet.de.

It is not a mandatory requirement for the effective exercise of the right of withdrawal to use the return label offered by us for the return. You can use any other shipping service provider. We ask you to unpack the consignment and send it as an insured parcel; we will reimburse you immediately for the return costs incurred.

Return due to warranty / guarantee / repair:
If you want to return an item because you would like to make use of the warranty, an additionally granted guarantee or our repair service, please write to our customer service at service@elabnet.de beforehand. We will clarify the further procedure with you and then send you an e-mail with the return label or QR code for the "mobile return".

Drop off your return:
You can drop off your return at any Deutsche Post parcel delivery service as well as at 29,000 parcel drop-off points (Post branch, Postbox and Packstations). DHL will also print the return label for you (based on the QR code in the email with the return label). For details, please read "Mobile returns".

Note: You do NOT need to register with DHL beforehand to drop off your return at a Packstation. Simply scan the barcode of the printed return label (or alternatively scan the QR code sent to you from your mobile phone and have the return label printed by the Packstation*), select the compartment size and place the return in the compartment.

Please be sure to keep the receipt for the delivery of the parcel so that you can prove that it has been sent. You can track the shipment to us via the printed ID.

Collection of your return (subject to a charge):
Our logistics partner will also be happy to collect the return from you. If you do not have a printer, the DHL delivery person can bring the printed returns label with him or her when you arrange a collection. Please note that such a collection may be subject to a charge. However, you can also give a return to any DHL delivery agent or drop it off at a post shop or Packstation without ordering it in advance. Details under "Mobile returns".

Desired pick-up location (chargeable):
With our logistics partner DHL, you can specify the drop-off location for returns either for individual parcels or permanently for all your collections (and also your deliveries) in Germany. If the delivery agent does not meet you at home, you can leave your collections in a safe and dry place, for example in your garage or garden shed, where they will be collected by the delivery agent. You can permanently store the desired collection location in your DHL customer account (registration required) for all your collections or adjust it for individual parcel shipments via the link you receive (with the email of the return label) for collection.Bei unserem Logistikpartner DHL können Sie entweder für einzelne Pakete oder dauerhaft für alle Ihre Abholungen (und auch Ihre Zusendungen) in Deutschland den Ablageort für die Retoure festlegen. Trifft der Zusteller Sie zu Hause nicht an, können Sie Ihre Abholungen an einem sicheren und trockenen Platz, beispielsweise in Ihrer Garage oder im Gartenhaus, hinterlegen und werden dort vom Zusteller abgeholt. Sie können den Wunschort für die Abholung in Ihrem DHL Kundenkonto (Anmeldung notwendig) dauerhaft für alle Ihre Abholungen hinterlegen oder für einzelne Paketsendungen über den erhaltenen Link (mit dem eMail des Rücksendelabels) zur Abholung anpassen.
Important note: There may be a charge for arranging a collection from DHL. In addition, you are responsible for any loss of the shipment before it is collected by DHL. The insurance by DHL only starts from the time of handover, in the case of such collections from the desired location, when the delivery person scans the item. We recommend that you do not use this collection option.

Mobile Retoure:
With the DHL "Mobile Returns" service, you can print out the returns label at any post office branch or Packstation*, or have it printed out by a DHL delivery agent on their delivery route (mobile printer and free loading capacity required), or have it brought with you when you request a pick-up.
In the event of a return request, you will receive an email from us containing a QR code. Via a link, you can both order the collection (which may be subject to a charge) and have the delivery person bring the return label with him or her. You can also use the QR code on your smartphone to have the label printed at any post office or at selected Packstations*. This means you don't necessarily need a printer for the return shipment and you don't have to leave the house. There are no additional costs for using this "mobile return" service (unless you request a collection).

*Mobile Retoure is not available at all Packstations.
