When you receive your order, always keep the paperwork that is included with it in case you wish to return or exchange an item. Also, save any emails you receive about your order, as they may provide important information.
A return merchandise authorization (RMA) is required for all returns. You can request an RMA through your online account or by calling us at 888-W-STEIFF (888-978-3433) and we will issue one for you. Returns can only be requested within 30 days of the product shipment date. Shipping costs will not be refunded unless the item arrives damaged or an error was made. Your order must be returned to Steiff North America, Inc. in order to receive full product credit. Returned items must be in their original packaging and in new condition, or they will be rejected and sent back to you. Merchandise will be accepted for return within 30 days of receipt. Some items may not be eligible for return. Customers are responsible to learn about specific return restrictions associated with specific products or promotions.
Limited Edition returns are not eligible for a full refund unless the outer cardboard box is unopened and the brown tape is sealed. If a Limited Edition is returned in an opened outer box, a refund of 50% of the item's total retail value will be issued.
In rare instances, a restocking fee may apply to returned items or items that have been cancelled from an order. If a restocking fee will apply to an order, it will be noted on the final screen of checkout before you complete your order.
