Order Refunds/Returns Guidelines 


Groupon Goods Marketplace has specific procedures for order refunds and returns as outlined in your Merchant Agreement. Merchants failing to comply with the policies below may be subject to suspension or even account termination. 

  • You MUST honor the return policy listed on your deal page. 
    It’s important to note that a FINAL SALE policy does not apply to products that are broken or defective.

  • You may NOT ask the customer to ship a product back at their own cost. 
    Per Goods Marketplace policy, it is your obligation to provide the customer with a return label.  

  • Partial quantity refunds are available after an order has been shipped.
    Less than full quantity refunds are available in CommerceInterface after an order has been shipped. When marking an order returned in CI, you will be prompted to provide the quantity being refunded. Note that the customer will only receive a refund of the shipping fee if the full quantity has been refunded.


  • Merchants may NOT in any circumstance request customer personal information such as customer PayPal account or billing address.


  • If you choose to offer a return/refund on an order, financial reimbursement must be executed using CommerceInterface. 
    However, keep in mind that taking action on CI will not automatically close your ticket on Gateway. Likewise, providing your customers with a return label will not automatically refund your order.
