Do I have to pay for returns shipping?

How do I track my order?
You can find the tracking information for your order in the shipping confirmation email that is sent as soon as your items are fulfilled and shipped.
How do I return items in my order?
For any items you do not wish to keep, simply submit your return decision through the Blackcart Customer Portal. You’ll find a link to your portal account in your transactional emails. Once your return decision is submitted, you’ll be able to print a prepaid shipping label, and from there, drop off your return at the nearest carrier location.
Why do I need to provide my credit card information when checking out?
Try Before You Buy allows you to try our products at home first before paying for anything you decide to keep. Your credit card will not be charged for any Try Before You Buy items when initially checking out; however, we still ask for your payment details. This is to make it easy for you to decide which items to keep (and pay for) after you’ve had a chance to try them on at home first.
Why do I see a charge authorization on my credit card statement when initially checking out?
For some orders (especially first-time orders), a temporary authorization charge may be processed to verify the validity of the credit card. The charges can vary from $1 - $100 depending on the total order value.
Note that this charge is automatically and immediately canceled, but may remain visible as a pending 'authorization charge' for a few business days. Authorization charges are never held for longer than a few seconds and should be removed from your statement within a few days of being processed.
If you do not see a refund or if the transaction is not removed from your statement after a week, please feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to help!
