Restocking Fee Policy
All items are subject to a 10%*** restocking fee on all returnable items within the 30 days of the purchasing date depending on their condition when returned. Refer to our Return Policy above for more info.
If you placed an order and received free shipping but returned an item and you no longer qualify for the free shipping, you, the buyer, are responsible for paying the original cost of shipping as well as the return shipping cost.
For example, if you spent $220 but returned an item(s) that cost $140, you would no longer qualify for free shipping. (Free shipping is for orders over $175, your order total is now $80 after your return). Therefore, you are responsible for the original shipping cost, return shipping cost, plus 10% restocking fee on the $80 order.
Why do you charge a restocking fee? This fee is to help cover a portion of the costs of the original packaging, boxes, tape, labels, transaction fees, packing labor, and return transaction labor.

If you have any further questions regarding this policy, please contact us!

What is a reasonable restocking fee? It is the percentage of the item’s price depending on type of item and condition when it is returned. Our restocking fee is 10% on the returned items.
