Return Materials Authorization

If you need to initiate a return, please fill out and submit the Return Materials Authorization form. Our Customer Support staff will get back to you promptly by email with a Return Materials Authorization number (RMA) and a shipping return label. Returns without an RMA will delay the refund process and will not be accepted.

Product Return Eligibility

Eligible Products - All returned items must be brand new, unused and in their original packaging. Most of our products, except for the ones mentioned below, have 30 days from delivery date for clients in the United States. You are responsible for the shipping charges to return the product back to us. We will automatically provide a return label for your return. However, the return label cost will be deducted from your refund unless the product is damaged or defective. You are responsible for returning products in a safe, unbroken condition, so please pack returns carefully. You will be credited for the original amount less the shipping cost for the return through the same payment method you used to pay for the order. Please also see the return policy of Free Shipping Items below.

Non-Eligible Products - Items that are not in original condition do not qualify for returns. We are unable to return products that have been used or installed, that have missing parts, for which the original packaging has been destroyed, or that are otherwise not in original condition and resalable. In addition, caulks, foams, mastic, tapes are not returnable as weather related conditions and poor environments affect those items. We also are not able to return any toilet seat or washlet if the seal is opened.

Free Shipping Items

Anytime you purchase a Free Shipping product and you decide to return it later, we will charge your credit card with the shipping charge to you. Free Shipping is a cost we incur to make the sale and if the sale is returned then you will incur the charge.

Restocking Fee

A 15% restocking fee is applied for returns of products similar to those listed below. Please make sure of the product you order before placing the order. Shipping and restocking fees on these products can be costly. A similar fee applies to custom ordered products, where the product is not in stock but is ordered directly from the manufacturer. If you are unsure whether the restocking fee applies, feel free to e-mail us. We will promptly answer you.
