  1. Bring up the bottom toolbar by pressing the Oculus button on your right Touch controller.
  2. Select Navigate.
  3. Select Store.

When you browse content in the Oculus Store, you can view the comfort rating to see if the experience is right for you. We work closely with developers to make sure the comfort rating accurately matches the experience. If you’re new to VR, we recommend starting with content that’s rated Comfortable before trying Moderate, Intense or Unrated.

Comfort Ratings

The following comfort ratings can be found in the Oculus Store:

Comfortable experiences are appropriate for most people, although this rating doesn’t mean that an experience is going to be comfortable for everyone. These experiences generally avoid camera movement, player motion, or disorienting content and effects.


Moderate experiences are appropriate for many but certainly not everyone. These experiences might incorporate some camera movement, player motion, or occasionally disorienting content and effects.


Intense experiences aren’t appropriate for most people, especially those who are new to VR. These experiences incorporate significant camera movement, player motion, or disorienting content and effects.


Unrated experiences may contain intense content, which may not be right for most people, especially those who are new to VR. If you experience motion sickness or other VR effects from an unrated experience, you should select another unrated experience, or try an experience in the Oculus Store that’s rated for your comfort level.

Note: When we assign a comfort rating, we’re judging the default experience.

Purchasing and refunds

Understanding how purchases and refunds work in the Oculus store.

If you have a problem with content you recently bought in the Oculus Store, you can request a refund on the Oculus app on your phone. You can learn more about the refund policy by visiting our Oculus Rift/Quest Content Refund Policy and Oculus Terms of Service.

Refund Availability

For Oculus Quest content, you may be eligible for a refund if you used the content for less than 2 hours and you've requested a refund less than 14 days after purchase.

For more important eligibility details on content refunds, please visit our Oculus Rift/Quest Content Refund Policy and Oculus Terms of Service.

Requesting a Refund

To request using the Oculus companion app on your phone:

  1. Open the Oculus companion app on your phone.
  2. Tap Settings from the bottom menu.
  3. Tap Purchase History under Payment.
  4. Tap on the content you want to request a refund for, then tap Request Refund.
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions to request your refund.
For Refunds Not Covered by the Content Refund Policies

Even if you don't qualify for an automated refund under this policy, you may be able to receive a refund by contacting Oculus Support. For example, these refund rights are separate from any legal rights you may have if the content supplied is either faulty or misdescribed.

Receiving Your Refund

Once you request a refund, we'll review your request and email you back with an update. You won't be able to use the content while we review your request. To check the status of your request, visit your Purchase History.

It typically takes us no more than 5 days to review, verify and process refund requests. It may take longer for your statement to reflect the credit. If a refund request is granted, we'll credit you through your original payment method(s). If you still haven't received the money after 7-9 business days, we recommend contacting your payment provider for help receiving your refund.

For titles that are available for both Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift S, we support the ability to buy once and be entitled to the content on both devices.

With that being said, Oculus believes that it's important to empower the developer to make this decision, so while encouraged, developers are not required to implement cross-buying. The decision to allow for cross-buying is ultimately up to each developer and whatever is best for their business and community.

It's also important to note that Quest and Rift S run on different operating systems, so progress in a game on one device won’t necessarily carry over to the other.
