Returns Policy Conditions

At Trainers we want to ensure you are happy with the items you purchase. If you have changed your mind on a purchase we will exchange your item, provide an exchange card or refund your original method of payment in the event that the goods are faulty. We do not refund purchases simply cause you have changed your mind. Please choose carefully.


Exchanges must include the below criteria.


  • You return the item within 30 days (inclusive) from the tracked date of delivery
  • You produce your original trainers invoice (receipt) when you return the item 
  • The item is in original saleable condition: 
  • With all original tags 
  • In an unworn, unopened and unused state
  • Any sewn labels are still attached 
  • A returns form is completed and accompanies your returning item(s)

If you are not able to comply with these requirements, Trainers reserves the right to refuse an exchange or refund on change of mind items.  Trainers will not accept a bank statement as proof of purchase.  

We regret that we are unable to accept the exchange or return of the following items for change of mind for hygiene reasons: 

  • Swimwear 
  • Underwear / underskins / technical gear
  • Earrings and Jewellery 

Items on ‘Sale’ will only be exchanged (not refunded) for change of mind except where the item is faulty or defective.   

Gift cards cannot be exchanged or refunded and will expire 12 months from the purchase date. 



If you have a faulty item that you would like refunded, repaired or replaced, please contact our customer service team before sending the item back. If emailing regarding a fault, please attach pictures of the fault so the item can be assessed before a return is approved. In cases where a faulty item was received a pre-paid shipping label can be emailed to cover the return costs on the faulty item. Faulty items may be returned outside of the regular returns time frames providing the item is still under warranty. Please contact customer service or the brand directly for warranty periods.


We aim to have your refund processed within 24 hours of receiving; however some faults must be approved by the manufacturer before a refund or replacement can be issued. In this case we will keep you informed on a regular basis via email updates. This process usually takes around 2 weeks and once completed you should receive your refund or replacement within 1-7 business days.


For your convenience, item(s) purchased online may be exchanged at any Trainers store within new Zealand only, provided all online return policy conditions are met.  A refund will be provided to you crediting your original method of payment. In the instance that PayPal was your original method of payment; your refund will be credited to a credit card of your choice. Please note that cash refunds will not be provided under any circumstances and postage charges cannot be refunded.
