Return’s Policy

Unwanted Products

We offer customers a free 7 days return policy, whereby if you lodge a return via email to online@medicus.co.za or on our website, we will arrange our couriers to collect the goods from you at no charge.

Please note returns of this nature will only be accepted if:

  1. The product is undamaged and unused, with the original labels and stickers still attached;
  2. The original packaging, which must be undamaged and in its original condition with all seals still intact (if applicable). 
  3. Returns must be logged within 7 days of delivery to you for this policy to apply. After 7 days, you can only return a product if it is defective.

When lodging the return via email, we ask that you please include the following information in order to speed up the processing of the return.

- The Invoice number of the order

- The reason for the return (this will allow us to improve our service to you the customer and address any problems you may experience in using our product(s))

Based on the above information our sales department will email you that a collection has been logged and that the couriers will be collecting the goods from you in due course. Only on receipt of the goods will we make the necessary assessment of the product(s) and either issue you with credit for the return or refund the monies to your bank account/ credit card. We reserve the right to refuse a return, if the unwanted product is returned damaged, not in a re-saleable condition or missing any accessories.

Exchanging a Product

Products can be exchanged for a different size or colour variation, provided that such variation is available and the exchange is lodged within 7 days of delivery of your original order.

If such variation is not available, we will credit your account with the purchase price of the product within 10 days of the return (or refund you if that is your preference).

Should there be a difference in price between the two products exchanged, we may require an additional payment to be made for the difference or in a case where the product requested for exchange costs less than the original product we will credit your account with the difference (or refund you if that is your preference).
