Fortnite is a mega hit game, after releasing in 2017, the game took over the world as one of the most popular battle Royale games of all time. There was a reason for this, the game was exciting to play and the gameplay was refreshing and engaging with its very own building and destructible environment system.


Later on, though, Fortnite turned into a living breathing world of its own. There are collaborations upon collaborations that Epic Games have done with multiple different intellectual properties. They have collaborated with movie franchises, television series, celebrities, and even other video games. This has resulted in the best in-game skins, cosmetics, and items ever release in any game.

This is why Epic Games has the best and most advanced refund system in any game, which lets you return items you didn’t intend to purchase of your own volition.

It's rather simple to return skins in Fortnite, refunding them is genuinely a single button press. If you purchase by mistake, you can simply click on the ‘Refund’ button on the skin menu that you have purchased. However, if you have made a purchase and are unaware of it, you will have to submit a request.

This isn’t a long procedure either though, as submitting a request will take no more than a few minutes, and you get your item refunded and your V-Bucks restored in quick succession. Here are the quick and easy steps on how to refund skins in Fortnite.


  • Load up Fortnite and get into the main menu of the game. 
  • Head into the "Settings" menu from the top right corner. 
  • Click on the "Account and Privacy" tab on the farthest right side of the tabs. 
  • Select the "Submit a Request" option.
  • Choose the item which you want to refund. 
  • Now, you need to provide a reason for your refunding of the purchased item. This can be anything you like. 
  • Select "Submit Return Request" and your item will be refunded.


After you have refunded the item, and it is successfully confirmed, a screen will pop up which will showcase how many web bugs have been restored into your account wallet. This amount will be the same as the cost of the item that you chose to refund.

A few things that you should note are that you do not have unlimited lifetime refunds. So, by default, you will always have enough to refund items if you make a wrong purchase more than once. However, if you make unintended purchases in quick succession and many times, then you might not be able to refund some items due to a lack of lifetime refund cards. Essentially, you can’t have unlimited return requests in Fortnite, so make your purchases after thinking carefully about what you want.

Refunding cosmetics is essentially the same as refunding skins in Fortnite. The procedure is the same, if you managed to not refund it on the item menu as soon as you buy it, you can submit a request and get your item refunded. It also has the same amount of lifetime refund card limitation, which will be used if you refund a cosmetic item such as a weapon skin, a backpack, a pickaxe, a glider, or even a gliding animation.



Refunding items has never been simpler in any game than Fortnite. Epic recognized the fact that a lot of their target player base are young people, which means that unintended purchases are most likely going to occur daily. So, their systems are developed in a way that they do not punish you or the account for making unintentional purchases. That’s it, now you know how to refund skins in Fortnite.
