Difference between Amazon Returnable and Replaceable items
Amazon categorises products on three parameters — Returnable, Replaceable and Non-returnable.
Non-returnable products can’t be returned, replaced or refunded. Once the device is sold there’s nothing that can be done about it.
In the case of Returnable products can be returned under the return window if there’s some issue with the product related to the quality, functionality, etc.
The Replaceable products, as the name suggests, can be replaced in case you’ve received a damaged product or if there’s some problem with it.
The key difference between the Returnable and Replaceable products is in terms of what options you get in case there’s something wrong with the product.
