RETURN & EXCHANGE POLICY
Ponto Footwear will accept, for return or exchange, items that are in new condition, unworn, unaltered and free of damages by the customer as long as the return or exchange is initiated within 30 days of the order ship date. For a full refund or exchange, mail out your item within 30 days from the receipt of original order. Items must be returned in their original packaging.
How to Return or Exchange Your Order:
We offer FREE ground shipping for all returns and exchanges (with the exception of Hawaii and Alaska) as long as you use the pre-paid return label we provide after you contact our customer service team.
Request a return on pontofootwear.com, and print the provided return label. Affix the label to the outside of the shipping box. Drop off the package at any Carrier Store, Drop Box, Customer Center, or with any Carrier driver. If a carrier is not available in your area or you prefer not to use it to return or exchange your items, you can use any other trackable method, at your expense. Please insure the package for the full retail value of the shipped products, as we will not be liable for any damage incurred in transit.
Once we receive your package, we will process your return within 5 business days.
Refunds will be made in the form of the original payment where the same credit card used for purchase will be credited with a refund. While we process returns within 5 business days from the day we received the items, card refunds may take up to ten business days for your bank to complete, depending on their processing time. This can vary greatly between card issuers, and unfortunately we are unable to influence this.
Shipping Methods, Costs and Transit Times
Ponto Footwear uses a Third Party Logisitics company called ShipCalm for its shipments and offers a FLAT RATE ground shipping on all orders shipped to a valid US address (excluding Hawaii and Alaska). When placing your order, select your preferred delivery option before proceeding to purchase.
All orders are processed and shipped as fast as possible from the date/time they were placed. If an order is placed before 10am EST, in most cases it will be processed and shipped out on the same day. During very busy seasons and major launches, the shipment can take longer.
Risk of Loss; Product Insurance
All products purchased from the Site are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier. We insure your purchase during its transit until it is delivered to the delivery address specified in your order.
