Unwanted purchase

Having purchased a mobile phone over the web, I have since decided I do not want it.


I understand from the company's web site that it is in the post. My question is, how do I stand about sending it back for a complete refund. Am I within my rights.

Thanks very much for your speedy response, I'll pop it strait back in the post.

Be sure to tell them the reason for the return and get a returns number first.

Do NOT pop it straight back in the post. You must first notify the seller that you intend to return the goods (you must do this within 7 days), and although you must get a returns number as Diodorus Siculus says, you are under no obligation to provide a reason.

When I say to tell them the reason for the return, I meant that you should tell them you are returning it under the distance selling regulations. Sorry if I did not make that clear.

Whilst you are under no obligation to give a reason, it is always best to do so. The seller then as the facts of return, which could be of great benefit to them.
