Why Do I need an RMA Number?
1. Identification of your returned merchandise. Our warehouses receive hundreds of packages every day. Without an RMA#, your package may become lost.
2. The RMA number ensures your package gets to the right warehouse. We ship from multiple warehouses throughout the United States to ensure you get your order as fast as possible. Returned merchandise must be sent to the location we direct your return to. Shipping your return to the wrong warehouse or to our mailing address will significantly delay the processing of your return and may result in additional fees. This may also result in the loss of packages. We are not responsible for lost packages.
3. Avoiding lost returns. Your package can easily become lost without a proper RMA number and tracking number. Without these numbers, identifying a lost package is nearly impossible. If we do not receive your package, or cannot find it, we cannot process your return.
