Blizzard Refund Policy
We’ve posted this policy to make our refund philosophy clear around purchases made from Blizzard on Battle.net. This document is part of our official Terms of Sale.
We believe in our mission to create epic entertainment experiences, and we want you to feel confident you’re getting the product and support you expect from Blizzard.
If you change your mind about a recent purchase, or if you haven’t used it, we’ll try to work with you on a refund.
We support and trust our players, but that’s a two-way street. We may withdraw refund eligibility for abuse of this policy. The same goes for violations of the In-Game Code of Conduct or the End User License Agreement.
How to Request a Refund
You can usually request a refund automatically using our support site and selecting the relevant game or order. We can only provide refunds for purchases made on our own platform. This includes purchases made through the Blizzard Shop, the Battle.net App, or within one of our games.
We will typically refund purchases to the method of payment used for the original transaction. In some cases, such as those where the original payment method cannot be refunded, we may provide the refund in the form of Battle.net Balance.
If the automated service doesn’t address your needs, our support team is available to help.
