Opened 8 oz. or 16 oz. bottles that are leaking or have a substantial volume used may incur a restocking fee.
Our cost to ship each order is more than what you pay, and we will recoup the difference on any return or exchange. For example, if you paid $12 for UPS 2nd Day Air, our cost was actually $20, and we'll recoup the $8 difference. Even the smallest packages shipped via Priority Mail cost $9-$10 (while you paid only $5 or $7). For this reason, returning / exchanging 2 oz. finishes or tubs of filler may prove cost prohibitive.
We will also recoup the return label cost on any return or exchange. Our return labels cost less than what you'll pay at the counter at UPS or the Post Office. They are also more convenient.
