Return Policy - For Products Ordered Directly From Schatten Design

If you have a product that requires warranty service / repair / or replacement  -or-

If you have ordered an incorrect product -or-

If you have a ordered a product that you would like to return for a refund -

You must follow these guidelines:

1) Contact us by phone or by email for an RA (Return Authorization) number and shipping instructions.

2) No returns will be accepted without an authorization.

3) Returns shipped incorrectly or labeled incorrectly will incur restocking and/or handling charges.

4) Products that have been subject to modification, abuse or misuse will not qualify for a refund.

5) The only thing that we can't refund is the cost of shipping.

6) All Refunds and exchanges must be requested within 30 days of your receiving your order.



    In the past we have had a few customers who phoned or emailed in to cancel an order that was placed online. We have no problem with this and will cancel an order and refund the full amount of the purchase including the shipping provided that the order has not already been shipped.


For customers outside of North America only:

     As with all normal business transactions, once something has been ordered and shipped it is the customer's responsibility to accept delivery and to pay any duties or taxes due upon receipt. Once shipping has occurred a customer may not decline delivery. Failure to accept delivery will mean that your pickup(s) will not clear customs in your country and will be surrendered to customs  for disposal or destruction because the cost of returning the product will exceed the original purchase price. There is obviously no refund possible under these types of circumstances.
