Hi @ugesh 

The first step I would take is to find out what the time limit is for requesting a chargeback on whatever payment method you used (bank card/credit card/PayPal etc.).

Although their responses may be slow and I know it is frustrating, as long as they are responding I would still pursue getting the refund/replacement via the merchant up until a certain point when you still have enough time to request a chargeback. If they cease responding, or continue making you jump through unreasonable hoops or repeat steps you already took, I would contact your payment provider to request the chargeback. Document all communication and the steps you took to attempt to get a refund and provide that as evidence. 

If the merchant is acting in a shady/fraudulent manner, you can also report them to Shopify here. However, that is only for reporting shops that violate Shopify's terms (such as fraud or copyright infringement). It shouldn't be used to report what just amounts to a bad shopping experience with a merchant. If they are simply providing bad customer service, I would recommend using online reviews, forums, etc. if you would like to share your poor experience.
