You can also look up the tracking information from the “View Orders” page on your OnBuy account.

Can I return items from OnBuy?

OnBuy is an online marketplace, not a retailer, which means the returns process will vary depending on the seller you order from.

You can view each individual seller’s returns policy from its storefront. Simply click the seller’s name above the price on the product page. This will bring up the “Returns & Terms” tab where you can view individual returns policies. If you have any questions about the seller’s returns policy, get in contact with the seller directly.

Is it safe to shop at OnBuy?

As with any online marketplace, there are always going to be unscrupulous sellers who are out to make a quick buck. It’s a good idea to take the proper precautions when shopping on the platform, but generally speaking, buying and selling on OnBuy is just like Amazon or eBay. The site is also partnered with PayPal, to offer you increased security and protection.

Are products from OnBuy good quality?

Again, this will depend on the seller and the price range you are looking at. However, many reviews from customers of OnBuy have commented on good quality items at competitive prices.
