How can I get my refund?

Once your return has been approved by our Customer Service Associates at the branch, you will have the option of receiving a credit voucher that can be used at the store to purchase a replacement of the item you have, or if the item is not available in the store, other item/s.

If you paid for your item via credit card, you may also choose to have the charges reversed. However, this may take longer depending on your issuing bank. Once processed, we recommend checking your next billing statement for validation. We will process the charge back once the request has been made in the store.

How long is the credit voucher valid for?

The credit voucher is valid for the 30 days, where the first day is the date of issuance. Please visit any of THE SM STORE branches to be able to use the voucher. Unfortunately, we will not be able to extend the validity of the Gift Cards once it has expired.

Can the credit voucher be reprinted if lost or stolen?


Can I use my credit voucher for my next online transaction on

We are working on this feature in the succeeding months. For now, credit vouchers may only be used at any of THE SM STORE branches nationwide.

How long does the replacement and refund process take?

Replacing your item/s in any of THE SM STORE branches will only take a few minutes, given that all requirements are met according the Return and Exchange Policy. Once our Customer Service Associate has validated the item/s and issued your credit voucher, you may already select a replacement item. Should the replacement item's price be lower than the credit voucher value, no refund shall be given. Meanwhile, you will need to settle any excess amount if the replacement item's price is higher than the credit voucher value.

Should you prefer to request for a refund, credit vouchers shall be immediately generated while you wait in the store. However, for credit card charge back, it may take longer as it will be highly dependent on your credit card issuing bank. We recommend checking your next billing statement for validation.

Will my shipping fee be refunded when I return my item/s?
