You can choose to receive the applicable refund against the order in either your FirstCry Cash Wallet, respective bank, card or wallet. Note that when the product has already been shipped, you will not be able to cancel an individual product, as complete shipment or package would get cancelled. Most products come with a 30-day return policy. However, the criteria for return or replacement can vary according to product category. For example, products under the ‘Birthday’ category have a return/exchange period of 2 days from the date of delivery. Also, hygiene products such as, baby diapers, diaper rash cream, maternity accessories, baby pacifiers, and kids’ food and nutritional supplements are not accepted for return or replacement.
