Shipping & Handling
In-stock orders ship next business day after payment is cleared. All orders within continental U.S. are shipped via USPS Priority Mail* unless otherwise noted in the listing; tracking information is provided. Orders for countries outside U.S. are shipped via First Class International; no tracking information is provided. Charges shown reflect estimated cost of shipping based on weight/dimensions of individual item as well as handling costs. Some items may be eligible for expedited shipping; please contact us prior to purchase to confirm eligibility and get a quote for expedited charges. A separate invoice will be prepared for expedited shipping costs, and all invoices must be paid in full per our payment guidelines for an order to be eligible for expedited shipping. Orders made with expedited shipping request that are invoiced and not paid will be shipped via standard shipping as noted above unless buyer requests cancellation of the order within the appropriate time period. *Dapple reserves the right to change shipping methods, at our discretion, based on actual shipping cost at time of shipment. Note: Dapple is not responsible for lost, late, misdirected or damaged parcels.
Returns & Exchanges
Returns/exchanges accepted only if item received does not match purchased item description. Buyer must contact Dapple immediately to resolve any problems, and if a return is required, Dapple will issue a Return Authorization (RA) number. To receive a refund or exchange, item must be returned within 14 days of receipt (if required), AFTER RA number is issued, and must be in excellent, sellable condition and original wrapping/packaging. Damaged, opened and/or used items will not be refunded or exchanged.
Refunds will be made via PayPal to original payment address once returned item is received by us and verified that it meets return criteria above. Should buyer choose to exchange an incorrect item received for the correct item [exchanges for item(s) other than originally ordered are not currently offered], we will ship the correct item to buyer via Priority Mail at no additional cost once original item returned is received at our office and confirmed that it meets return criteria above. Buyer must note return or exchange preference on packing slip; otherwise, a refund will be issued, subject to above terms and conditions.
After 14 days from receipt of item, returns and exchanges are not accepted - no exceptions. Any items returned after the 14 day period will not be refunded, exchanged or returned to buyer (unless buyer provides a prepaid shipping label for the return). Return shipping is buyer's responsibility up front but will be refunded up to original shipping cost if customer provides return shipping receipt and tracking information; any amount exceeding original shipping cost will not be refunded. Original shipping costs are non-refundable. Tracking information must be provided for returns; we are not responsible for returns sent without tracking information. Dapple is not responsible for lost, late, misdirected or damaged parcels.
Buying Pre-Owned Items
Our policy regarding pre-owned items is to sell in as like-new condition as possible - if we would not purchase it, we will not sell it. All items listed as pre-owned are single-owner, barely-used merchandise that have been carefully inspected for flaws, any noted being listed in the item description. All pre-owned items are properly cleaned and packaged for protection. You can be assured of receiving good quality merchandise from Dapple!
Feedback is important to the success of our business, and we take your opinion seriously. Should you experience any problem or concern regarding a purchase from Dapple, we would appreciate the opportunity to resolve the matter before you consider leaving feedback, and if you are satisfied with your purchase, we appreciate you leaving feedback as soon as possible after you receive the feedback link from eCrater. Let us know how we are doing!
NOTE: Dapple works hard to ensure 100% customer satisfaction but it is important for customers to give us that chance. Leaving negative feedback for a problem that has been/is being resolved or that we have not been informed about unnecessarily damages our reputation. We rarely have a problem with our products or services but greatly appreciate those who deal honestly with us in attempting to resolve any concerns they may have. Additionally, accepting returns is not obligatory on our part; we do so out of courtesy, to give buyers confidence and to show our dedication to the highest quality service. All we ask is that customers work with us accordingly to ensure we are able to continue providing this option. Please see our FAQ page for details on our Return Policy, as well as other pertinent information.

Be assured we will respond within a reasonable time frame to all legitimate inquiries.
