Return Procedure

  1. Print this page.
  2. Fill in the relevant information on the return form.
  3. Cut the Return Address label from the bottom of this page.
  4. Pack your returnable items into a sturdy carton and be sure to include the following items:
    • The Return Form
    • The Packing List
    • Any special notes to us.
  5. Seal the package and attach the Return Address Label to the package.
  6. Ship via United States post Office Media Mail (formerly parcel Post)


  • Books or audiovisual media must be returned in their original condition; items ordered as "new" must be returned with no markings or other damage. Any software media that may be included in the book must also be intact. Movies and games may not be returned once the shrink-wrap or packaging seal is broken, unless the product is found to be defective.
  • The shipping fee paid by the customer at the time of purchase will be refunded only if the return is due to our error (i.e., we sent you damaged items or the wrong items).
  • We will notify you via email of your refund once we have received and processed the returned item. Your refund will be in the same form of payment originally used for purchase. This process usually takes about 10-14 business days.
  • Items that are returned more than days after order confirmation will be subject to an additional restocking fee at the discretion of Akademos.

* Certain items are sold as non-returnable items for a variety of reasons. We are unable to offer refunds on such items. You will be made aware of the non-returnable status of such an item at the time of purchase.


Standard Return Policy

Purchased items can be returned to us for a full refund in the amount of the merchandise price paid less a 10% restocking fee, provided the following conditions are met:

  • Item was not purchased on our marketplace.
  • Item returned within days of your order confirmation.
  • Item was not sold as "Non-returnable".
  • If the item is "consumable", for example a one-time-use access code, it has not been opened or used.

For rented books being returned at the end of the rental period

By the last day of your rental period, you must either extend your rental or mail your rental book back. To mail the book back:

  1. Log in and go to your Purchases page, then click on the Rental Control Panel link for your rental book you want to return. Here you will find option to print your shipping label.
  2. Print your FREE shipping label.
  3. Put all of your rental books in one box, tape the box shut and then tape the shipping label onto the outside of the box. If you rented more than one book, you can still put all of the books in one box.
  4. Drop off the box at a shipping location by the last day of your rental period and THAT'S IT!
