How does the return process work?

Online purchases

All returns must be first authorized by Socratic Creations. so please email us to us to request a return merchandise authorization (RMA) number. To ensure our receipt and proper processing of your return, the RMA number must be written somewhere on the outside of the package before returning it to us.

Please indicate in your return request whether you would like to receive a refund, make an exchange, or take credit with Socratic Creations for future use. Please know that refunds issued outside the 30-days following delivery may be charged a restocking fee of 20%. Store credit is non-transferable though it can be used on anything and does not expire. We will respond to your request with an RMA number along with our receivables address for the return and any other details you may like to know.

We strongly suggest choosing a trackable shipping option when sending your return. USPS First-class service is an affordable option that includes tracking.

Once your return arrives at our location, we will notify you and begin creating the exchange, refund, or credit as per our preceding agreement. Please allow us up to three business days of its arrival to inspect the returned items and process any refunds or credits that may be due. Refunds will be issued to the original payment method.

To be eligible for a refund, exchange, or a store credit, all returned items must be unused, in the same condition as they were when originally delivered to you, and in their original packaging. If you cannot meet these conditions but feel you may qualify for an exception, please let us know or inquire in-store.
