Return Policy / Procedure


Volcom is committed to customer satisfaction. We want to assure you are 100% satisfied with the product you purchased, which is why we offer a FREE returns period on all items ordered online unless marked 'FINAL SALE'.

To be eligible for a return:

  • Items(s) must have been purchased through our online store.
  • Item(s) have to be initiated for return and placed in the post within 30 days of the purchase date.
  • Item(s) were not purchased from our Online Outlet Goodbyes section.
  • Item(s) were not marked “Final Sale” or “Non-Returnable” at the time of purchase, unless faulty (marked in red under the product page title).
  • If you think you have received a faulty or incorrect item(s), please check out our Warranty Policy and follow our Warranty Procedure to lodge your claim. Please note your warranty claim will be pending approval.

Return Conditions:

  • Item(s) must be in original condition. This includes original packaging including branded dust bags and shoeboxes.
  • Item(s) must be unworn and unused and unwashed.
  • Original tags must be attached.
  • Free from make-up, animal hair and any scent (including deodorant, perfume or washing powder).
  • Swimmers must have hygiene seal intact (hygiene stickers must remain in the same place as sold or shipped).
  • All swimwear sold as a set must be returned as a set.

If your item(s) do not the above conditions, your return request will be denied.



While our online returns team has the ability to refund your account for returned items, unfortunately, we are unable to offer exchanges for any online purchases.
This is due to a high turnover of stock and items availability, therefore we cannot guarantee your item will be in stock by the time we receive your return.

If a size exchange is required, we recommend placing a new order online and returning your original item(s) for a refund to avoid exchange sizes selling out.
