Just a few weeks ago, eBay announced its extended holiday returns policy. Come to find out, Amazon has been quietly working on a similar policy. Unlike eBay, Amazon opted in all its sellers without notification through the normal communications channels.

With some research, we came across the updated policy, and we’re here to give you the highlights.

Amazon orders shipped (by you or by Amazon) between November 1 and December 31 are now returnable through January 31 of the following year. This policy is aimed to create the best experience for buyers. Sellers are required to match this policy (or, for the overachievers, offer an even longer returns period).
