The refund will not be processed if the above-mentioned conditions are not met.


• In order to qualify for a full refund of the purchase price of the product/s (exclusive of shipping and handling charges), please fill in the form that you find here in which you will choose the reason why you are returning the product/s (please read the “Return costs” paragraph for more information) and then put the order number, date of purchase and the product/s that you want to return*.

• You are then requested to print the email that you will receive as soon as you send the return request form and put it inside the package.

• You will receive a Return Merchandise Authorization label that contains the shipping information as a separate email, which will need to be attached on the package and cover the courier’s label before shipping it. From the moment that you receive the RMA label, you have 7 calendar days to ship the package.

• Please note that the RMA label must be visible on the outside of the package. We advise that you select a shipping method that is traceable in order to take all necessary steps to ensure that the product/s are delivered safely. All the returning products must be shipped in one single delivery. ESA Space Shop is not responsible for returned items lost in transit.
