Just write receiver address as Boat customer care/service centre & sender address(your address). You can put inside photocopy/printout of invoice. Are these details not mentioned in communication from boat?

Also write the ticket number sent by boat customer care on the parcel/cable box.
The reverse pickup was so fast, he came early morning, I sticked lable of name address on box and invoice inside. And sealed the box with tape. I kept cable + invoice inside the box + lable on the box.
He told me that you don't have to do anything. We will pack it for you and and no need to write lable and address, we apply our own packaging on original product box.
I told him that i kept copy of invoice inside the package.
He said no need for invoice also.
Then he left.

It was just extra caution,reverse pickup usually means courier service already got paid by the company arranging the reverse pickup & they have already given details to courier company.

If you don't provide ( they don't take ) the invoice how can they determine the purchase date ? Did i miss something or you sent the soft copy of the invoice while registering the product for RMA ?

okay.. please check 1st post..
for 1st time when you register your complaint here..
-https://support.boat-lifestyle.com/complaintregistration-
You are asked to upload invoice : "Invoice size should be less then 5Mb"

Also as i posted earlier, i included invoice print copy inside packaging box applied by me which handed over to reverse pickup. After that I don't know how they handle operate..
I also asked about that operation to reverse pickup guy, he told me that you don't have to do anything.
We will pack it for you and and no need to write lable and address, we apply our own packaging on original product box. I told him that i kept copy of invoice inside the package. He said no need for invoice also. Also as per boAt reverse pickup service you just need to hand over only product, without any box or any extra things like eartips, clips, case etc..
