**What is the right of withdrawal and how is it used?**

 

According to Article 48 of the Consumer Protection Law No. 6502:

 

The seller or provider fulfills the consumer's order within the promised time from the moment the order is received. For sales of goods, this period cannot exceed thirty days in any case. If the seller or provider does not fulfill the order within this period, the consumer may terminate the contract.

 

The consumer has the right to withdraw from the contract within fourteen days without any reason and without paying any penalty. It is sufficient for the notification of the exercise of the right of withdrawal to be directed to the seller or provider within this period. The seller or provider is obliged to prove that the consumer has been informed about the right of withdrawal. If the consumer is not properly informed about the right of withdrawal, the fourteen-day period does not apply to exercise the right of withdrawal. In any case, this period ends one year after the end of the withdrawal period. The consumer is not responsible for changes and deteriorations caused by the normal use of the goods within the withdrawal period.

 

Those who act as intermediaries in the establishment of a distance contract on behalf of the seller or provider through a system they have created, using or making use of remote communication tools, are obliged to keep records related to the transactions made with the seller or provider due to the matters specified in this article and to provide this information to the relevant institutions, organizations, and consumers upon request. However, those acting as intermediaries within the scope of this paragraph are responsible for their actions contrary to the contract made with the seller or provider.

 

According to the third paragraph of Article 9 of the Regulation on Distance Contracts, in determining the withdrawal period:

 

- For goods that are subject to a single order but delivered separately, the day the consumer or a third person designated by the consumer receives the last good,

- For goods consisting of multiple parts, the day the consumer or a third person designated by the consumer receives the last part,

- For contracts involving the regular delivery of goods for a certain period, the day the consumer or a third person designated by the consumer receives the first good,

is taken as a basis.

 

According to Article 13 of the same Regulation; the consumer must return the goods to the seller or provider or the person authorized by them within ten days from the date the notification of the exercise of the right of withdrawal is directed to the seller. The consumer is not responsible for changes and deteriorations caused by the proper use of the goods in accordance with their operation, technical specifications, and usage instructions within the withdrawal period.

 

**In which cases/products can the right of withdrawal not be used?**

If the value of the goods decreases or the return becomes impossible due to a fault of the buyer, the buyer is obliged to compensate the damages of the seller in proportion to the fault (e.g., loss of stones on wedding dresses and evening dresses, unraveling of lace embroideries, etc.). However, the buyer is not responsible for changes and deteriorations caused by the proper use of the goods or products in accordance with the rules within the withdrawal period.

 

If the campaign limit amount set by the seller is exceeded due to the exercise of the right of withdrawal, the discount amount used within the campaign is canceled.

 

**Who is responsible for the return shipping fee in the process of exercising the right of withdrawal?**

 

In the use of the right of withdrawal, if the buyer has not chosen a carrier other than the one specified by the seller and if the goods are returned through the carrier specified by the seller for the return, the consumer cannot be held responsible for the return costs. If the seller has not specified any carrier for the return in the preliminary information, no cost related to the return can be charged to the consumer. If the specified carrier does not have a branch at the location of the consumer, the seller is obliged to ensure that the goods to be returned are collected from the consumer without any additional cost.
