Make a Difference Shop

I will gladly accept returns and exchanges on regular priced items purchased at the Make a Difference Shop. In order to resolve cases, I must be contacted within a reasonable amount of time from the product shipping date, to notify my manufacturer. Contact me within 10 days of delivery for U.S. and Canadian orders or within 15 days for international orders, otherwise I may not be able to help resolve the issue. Ship items back to me within 30 days of delivery. Buyers are responsible for all shipping costs, including international custom and import taxes. If the item is not returned in its original condition (unworn, unwashed), the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.

If there is an error with your order or if there are any changes you wish to make after your order has been placed, I require that you contact me within 8hrs of the order being placed or by the following business day if the order was placed over the weekend. There is a short time frame between the manufacturer receiving the order and when production begins. Contact me immediately you need it edit your order. I cannot promise anything but I will contact the manufacturer to see if the have not started production. However; once production begins the manufacturer cannot make any changes to the order and no refund will be issued. When contacting me with an issue, please be sure to include photos for reference. All returns are handled on a case by case basis.

When are Make a Difference Shop orders not refundable?

Orders are NOT refundable for the following:

  1. After 30 days of item purchased.
  2. Incorrect size, however, you may return the incorrect sized garment and exchange it for the correct size; so long as the garment is in it’s original condition, not been worn, unwashed and it’s returned in the original packaging.
  3. A package was lost (in this case, my manufacturer will usually reprint and reship the order).
  4. An item was damaged in transit. Send me photos of the damaged package, so I can notify my manufacturer to resolve the issue.

You will be responsible for paying for your own shipping costs, import taxes and any custom fees (if applicable) for returning your item. Shipping costs are non-refundable. If you receive a refund, the cost of return shipping will be deducted from your refund. If you live within the Metro-Detroit area I am willing to meet up with you at a public location; so you can avoid shipping costs.

Depending on where you live, the time it may take for your exchanged product to reach you may vary.

If you are returning more expensive items, you may consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance.


I accept cancellations please request a cancellation within 10 hours of purchase.
