Fortnite patch 3.6 introduced a Self-Refund feature, but it doesn't seem to be working at the moment.
A new feature allowing Fortnite players to return cosmetics was added with yesterday's patch. At present, the service has been taken offline due to an "issue discovered" with the new self-refund feature.
Epic Games said it disabled the feature until it can create a fix and "make some usability improvements to the system."
Until them, you can learn what can and cannot be refunded. Basically, the system allows Fortnite players to return up to three cosmetic purchases for V-Bucks, lifetime.
Also, only eligible purchases made within the past 30 days are able to be returned.
It's a rather handy feature to have if you bought something by mistake, or loathe how a cosmetic item looks on your virtual person.
We told you all about this in the Fortnite v3.6 patch notes yesterday, but we've posted it separately for your convenience.
