We'll contact you if we need more info
Someone at ZenSupply may contact you about your return.
Typically, it's to request information that is needed to process your return.

Common delays & how to avoid them
First – order the right product. If anything is unclear or confusing, ask and we will help.
Second – provide complete and accurate contact information so we can contact you if needed.
A common reason returns are delayed is because we can't get in touch with the customer.
To avoid delays, make sure all contact information is complete and accurate when placing an order.
We recommend creating an account to make returns easier.
You will also be able to print past order invoices, view purchase history, create product lists, and other tools to help you save time and stay better organized.
We work in good faith to help each customer before, during, or after the purchase.
We work hard so you don't have to – we make the process as simple as possible.
If we can't process a return because we cannot make contact with a customer, we reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to place the return on hold, or cancel it.
You may initiate a return within 60 days after receiving the product(s). Some exceptions may apply. Returns outside of the 60-day return window will not be accepted. Refunds are initiated once the item has been received, inspected, and approved. Refunds will be issued for the returned products, minus return shipping.
To qualify for a general return, the item(s):
Must be in resalable condition (no signs of prior installation, scratches, blemishes, or wear and tear)
Must be free from scratches and/or defects.

Some special orders may not be returned if not proven defective.
We will notify you through email if the item is non-returnable.
If you have a special circumstance, reach out to our support team explaining why the product should be considered for return.

A call tag is an additional convenience option for general returns, and is set up when a shipping carrier needs to pick up an item from your home or business and deliver it back to our warehouse. Call tags are for parcel shipments (UPS only) and must be set up through customer service.
The cost of a call tag is $10.00 per package, plus the cost of shipping. The total cost of all call tags combined with all shipping charges will be deducted from your credit amount. A call tag takes 24 hours to process. Once processed, the carrier will make up to 3 attempts to pick up the package(s) from your home or business.
11. My purchase was damaged in transit. How do I return it, request a replacement, and/or file a claim?
You may log into your account to access the return request tool. When setting up the return please select “it was damaged in shipping” as the return reason. In the description please provide as much detail as possible of the damage. You will be prompted to upload three (3) photographs of the damage.
If you notice damage while the carrier is on site, DO NOT take possession of the damaged product(s). Instead, take a picture of the damage, gather copies of the paperwork from the carrier (if possible), and refuse delivery. Next, contact support. If you notice damage after delivery (concealed damage), take pictures of the damage, and complete the return online, or contact the appropriate support people. Items shipped via ground shipping must be reported within 14 business days. Freight carriers only allow two (2) business days after delivery to file a freight claim. You may set up a claim online through your account.
We will not be able to help with any complaints of damages, including visible or material defects, after the product has been installed or altered.
