No-Refund Policy

All authentication results are final, and there will be no appeals. All service fees are valid for 30 days after the date of purchase. Customers must prepare and submit item pictures to us within 30 days of order date. We may request additional pictures if needed. If customers do not submit adequate pictures within 30 days of order date, the fees will be forfeited, and no refunds will be given.

All fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. However, we will issue store credit in exceptional circumstances where we decide that authenticity cannot be accurately determined from the pictures because of technical limitations. Our turnaround time guarantee starts once your payment and sufficient pictures of your item have been submitted. If we exceed the specified turnaround time, we will issue store credit to you.

Misuse of Services

Misuse of services, including registering multiple accounts, using several e-mail addresses, assuming many aliases, knowingly providing false information, attempting to submit misleading items for authentication, or filing a payment dispute may result in order cancellation and denial of future services. No refunds or store credits will be provided in such cases.
