What is the cancel purchase feature and how does it work?

The cancel purchase feature allows you to “return” an item purchased in the Fortnite Item Shop immediately after purchase. When you cancel a purchase, the item is removed from your account, and the V-Bucks spent are returned to your account. You can use the cancel purchase feature only once for each item purchased.

To return an item immediately after purchase, click the CANCEL PURCHASE button, as shown on the purchase page below.
