Before going into the details of the procedure on how to get a refund on Fortnite for PS4, I think you might be interested in learning more about the topic in question.
Well, Epic Games, the software house that developed Fortnite, allows the user to request up to 3 refunds on items purchased in-game using V-Bucks, which is the virtual currency of the game.
This means that there is an important limitation: it is not possible to be refunded with real money. Also, they cannot be refunded not even purchases made with real money. So no V-Buck, nor of the various packages redeemable through coupons and the like. In the case of coupons, if you already have the item associated with it, the duplicate could be converted to V-Buck.
Furthermore, it is not possible to have the Battle Pass refunded (Battle Pass), i levels of the latter, the Beginners package, Lama pignatta (Save the world) and the Save the World weekly and event items.
The refund it works instead with normal skins and items purchased from the Fortnite Store by V-Buck. More precisely, the redeemable items in V-Buck are: morals, decorative backs, collection tools, hang gliders, trails, loading screens ed emote.
In summary, you can get your money back up to 3 cosmetic items purchased from the Fortnite Store over the life of your account. The refund will be paid in V-Buck. Once you have finished the 3 possibilities, it is no longer possible to get a refund for items, not even by contacting the game support.
Also, please note that an item can be refunded only within 30 days of its purchase. In short, the possibility of remedying one's mistakes on Fortnite exists, but there are some limitations to keep in mind. Having said that, let's get down to business.
