Calculating Your Refund

When the item is returned in its original condition with all original packaging, your credit card will be credited for the price of the purchase and any taxes, excluding shipping costs and re-stocking fees. If the return is due to a MyPilotStore error, the return shipping charges will be waived.

Many times we charge a discounted shipping cost for the original shipment. If you return an item and the outbound shipping cost was greater than you paid, the difference will be deducted from your return. For example, if we charged you $4.95 for shipping and our actual shipping cost was $8.50 we will deduct $3.55 ($8.50 minus $4.95) from the value of the return.
