An RMA number is necessary for the following reasons: (i) Our warehouse is unable to receive returned packages without prior approval, (ii) any item shipped without an RMA number will be refused and returned to the sender, (iii) RMA numbers allow us to keep track of what item(s) belongs to which order; know whether you would like to the product returned or exchanged; and ensure all returned items are sent to the correct manufacturer if found defective.
When filling out the RMA form, please be sure to provide as much detail regarding your return request as possible, including but not limited to: (i) the reason for returning, (ii) what defects were found with the product.
