  • Your refund will go to the payment method you used, minus any delivery-related costs, no more than 14 days from when your device is received.
  • The following return process also applies to orders delivered in-person or bought during the delivery appointment. All products purchased during delivery and installation appointments are subject to OnTech's return policy.
  • Nothing herein changes the statutory 14-day withdrawal right for consumers based in the EU. See Google Store’s Sales Terms.

If you haven’t received your Google Store order yet, see how to change or cancel it.

Step 1: Tell us what you'd like to return
  1. Find the order with the item you want to return.
  2. Under the order you want to return, select View details.
  3. Follow the onscreen instructions. After a few hours, you’ll get a confirmation email. Follow the instructions from the email.
  4. To print your shipping label immediately, click View. Print your shipping label and return label.

Tip: If you see "Device is not eligible for return," your shipment either hasn’t shipped yet or has passed the 15 day return limit. If it hasn’t shipped yet, you may be able to cancel or change your order.

Step 2: Prepare your return package

Important: Make sure to transfer, back up, or erase all personal and other data on the device before you send it to Google. Google isn’t responsible for any use or disclosure of any data that's on the device. Learn how to back up data on your Pixel phone.

Include the following items in your package:

  • The box your purchase came in
  • The device or accessory
  • Other accessories, documentation, and anything else that came with the device
  • The form included in your return confirmation email (find your device serial number if you need it)

You don’t need to include anything that didn’t come with the device. Make sure to remove the following items from your package:

  • SIM card (if you added your own)
  • Device cases
  • Extended batteries
  • Other accessories that didn’t come with the device
Step 3: Send your item back to Google
  • To be sure the device arrives in its original condition, use the label and instructions from the Google Store support email or from "Your orders" section on the Google Store site.
  • If you’re returning multiple items, package and ship each item separately with its unique return and shipping label. If you don’t ship each item with its correct label, there may be a delay in processing your return.
  • A refund can take 1–14 business days once the return product is inspected.

Exchange a device

Exchanges aren’t available. Instead, you can return your purchase and use your refund to buy a different item.
