FAQ – Audible Return Policy

The following are some common questions and answers on Audible’s Return Policy:

What type of refund will I get from Audible?

You will be refunded with the same method of payment you used to purchase the title. For example:

  • Titles purchased with credits will be refunded with credits.
  • Titles purchased with a coupon will be refunded with a new coupon.

Members who purchased their title with a credit(s) will receive their credit(s) back immediately to use for their next Audible purchase. Members who purchased a title with another form of payment will receive their refund in approximately 7 to 10 business days, depending on the issuing financial institution.

Can non-members return or exchange books with Audible?

Non-members can return or exchange 2 titles every 6 months by contacting Audible Customer Service. Contact options include chat, phone, and email.

Why can’t I exchange my Audible book?

If you see a title is “not eligible for return” you still may be able to return or exchange by contacting Audible. According to Audible, only a certain number of titles can be returned using the online tool. After that, Audible wants to talk to you to understand what it is you’re not liking and make some recommendations to help you find a better listen. As a reminder, your request to return an audiobook should be within 365 days of the original purchase.

How many times can I exchange an Audible book?

There does not appear to be an exact number of times you can exchange an Audible book. According to the Audible Exchange Policy, in instances where Audible finds the benefit is being overused it may, at its sole discretion, limit the number of exchanges and refunds allowed by each member, including, but not limited to, the loss of this benefit where Audible suspects abuse of the spirit of the program. Eligibility for this program ends immediately if a customer cancels or fails to maintain his or her membership in good standing. Audible may cancel or modify the terms applicable to the program with respect to any or all participants at any time.

  1. I am a member. I bought a language series and needed a different one. I was able to return two books as described above. I contacted customer service and the rep said they can return 3 additional books per day (not sure of the limit).

  2. Hi there,
    Just so you know, as of October 2022 you can only return Audible titles that were purchased with credits. The customer service rep just informed me that the change was made as a result of changes with Google Play and Apple’s policies.

  3. It’s a fantastic service, I really love this policy
    I usually exchange 4 books a year without any problems, although I am going to try more
    Some books I really don’t like, so I hope I don’t need to keep them

  4. I read listen to an enormous amount of audiobooks and after returning quite a few, audible makes it difficult, so much for risk free exchange.
