Return and refund policy
Dutch Expat Shop delivers over 28,000 typically Dutch and typically Belgian products, worldwide. All products are packed separately and professionally. We also keep in mind the best-before date of our products. Nonetheless, it could happen that products are being damaged, or that products expire, because your package was on it’s way for too long (more than 30 business days). In both cases it is possible that you can no longer use the products, resulting in the fact that you paid for something that hasn’t met your expectations. In both cases we would like to receive a couple of pictures of the damaged product or a picture of the best-before date of the product. After we receive the pictures, we will completely reimburse the damage you suffered, by refunding the value of the product to your bank account, or – by mutual consent - provide you with store credit. Products which are at your own risk, as described in the name of the product, are not applicable for a refund, because these products are fresh and have very short expiration dates. We advise you not to purchase these fresh products when you do not take the responsibility when these products are outdated. If we have forgotten to deliver a product, we will also refund the value of that product to your bank account. Unfortunately, resending it is not possible, because we are all human (and people sometimes make mistakes).
In case we are unable to deliver a product, whatever the reason may be, we will also refund the value of the product in question to your bank account. But if, for example, you have included other products in your order, we choose to replace the undeliverable product with a product (of the same value) that we can deliver and that you ordered as well. This way, you still use the sending weight of your package that you paid for to the fullest, and your package will not be delayed. For example:
You have ordered 1 pack De Ruyter sprinkles (€ 2 each) and 3 packs Kanjer syrup waffles (€ 1 each). If, in this case, we are unable to deliver 1 pack De Ruyter sprinkles, we choose to deliver 2 extra packs Kanjer syrup waffles to you. In this case you make the most of the sending weight, your package will not be delayed and you are being compensated financially (1 pack De Ruyter sprinkles is worth just as much as 2 packs Kanjer syrup waffles).
If you would rather not receive replacement products, but prefer your money back, then you can always indicate that with a message at the end of your order. If you indicate this, we will refund the value of the products, that were undeliverable, to your bank account.
If you ordered a product yourself, but it was not the product you wanted to order, then it is only possible to be reimbursed, if we receive the products undamaged. The shipping costs for the return are at your own expense.
Packages that, in the worst case scenario, are not delivered at all, because they were lost or very badly damaged, will be reimbursed completely, so all products and the included delivery fees. Furthermore, you can opt to receive a new package, which most of our customers do. In that case no extra costs will be charged, because we offer all our customers a 100% delivery guarantee, and therefore send you a new package for free.
Enjoy our delicious tastes!
