It is always advantageous when returning an item if you have a receipt. However, returning and exchanging items in Thailand isn’t as accepted a cultural practice as it is in western nations. Consequently, before purchasing any item it is best to sample the item in the store by plugging it in or attempting to operate it, and making sure all parts are included in the box.

When purchasing jewelry, make sure you obtain a certificate of guarantee, though it is common that such items cannot be returned –certainly not for full value anyhow.
