Contact us and we can even transfer that credit to any one of ProfileSupplies Ecomerce Websites for purchases of Furniture, Lighting or Building Materials. [see The "Return Process" & ]

Our Returns Policy & the Restocking Fee Rebate Program:

If you need to return an item that is in new condition with the original product tags,foam or other protective packaging and the item has not been installed, used, damaged, or altered, you may request a return authorization [RMA] within 10 days of reciept and return that product at your expense. Shipping costs are non-refundable. For items that are shipped free, any shipping costs paid by us are deducted from your refund. Any additional fees for shipping internationally or to Hawaii or Alaska, are non-refundable.[also see "The Return Process"].

  • Only ship the product to the warehouse address provided within the RMA. We will not be responsibly for products sent to any address other than stated within your RMA.
  • Use a carrier or courier that is able to offer a tracking number.
  • You may wish to insure your package. Any damage recorded upon receiving products at the warehouse, will be the responsibility of the customer, who will then have the option should they wish of making a claim with their chosen carrier.

Damaged or Defective Shipments or Products

Open and fully inspect your order immediately:  shoppers who often order online find it a best practice to open their boxes before the courier leaves, when possible to do so. While this is not always an option, particularly for packages left on a step or with a neighbor, adopting a rule of early inspection is a first line of deference against the rare but unexpected challenges associated with shipping products across the country.
When damage, defects or missing parts do occur, we want to deal with it promptly.
  • Inspect your package thoroughly.
  • When you accept a package that appears damaged, mark on the bill of lading, before the courier departs, that the packaging shows signs of damage.
  • ProfileSupply customers have 3 days to report damage or visible defects and 10 days to report missing parts or concealed defects.
  • Immediate inspection is particularly important upon receiving larger items (such as furniture, plumbing supplies, a large sink or chandelier) from a freight company  (LTL), White Glove or common freight carrier. In this instance, it is important to note any damage on the bill of lading or receipt when you sign for the delivery, even if the package appears only slightly damaged.
  • For Larger items, the customer does have the right to refuse delivery if the shipment appears damaged. should the customer feel that the damage appears only to the packaging, the shipment may be accepted, but the bill of lading must be marked with information referring to the visible damage prior to signing. Customers who sign for delivery and do not notate "damage" assume responsibility if merchandise is damaged.
  • ProfileSupply will replace or repair properly reported damaged or defective items once notified accordingly. Should the customer require a return of the item instead of replacement or repair, such a return will be handled as a standard return with applicable restocking fees charged against the applicable refund as laid out here.
  • Returned items originally reported as damaged or defective that are found not to be damaged or defective upon return will not be eligible for a full refund and may attract a restocking fee of 50% of the product price. Such restocking fees will not be eligible for a restocking fee rebate.

Refunds:
Once a returned item has been received and verified to have all original contents and packaging and confirmed to be free of damage, alteration or signs of installation, the applicable refund or credit process will begin.

Any refunds due will be accomplished through the same method in which the item was originally purchased or by company check. Refunds by check are typically issued within 14 business days of final approval, whereas direct credit card or PayPal credits can be accomplished more immediately.

Items returned without the proper RMA number are subject to a 20% restocking fee without further rebate, Items sent to the wrong warehouse are the customers responsibility and will cause a forfeiture of any refund otherwise expected. If a credit is to be given at all in this case, it will be at the discresion of ProfileSupply and it will be by store credit only. Please read your return instructions carefully in order to avoid any delay or unnecessary expenses.

In the event that a customer at the same time request a charge back from PayPal or from their credit card company, instead of waiting for their applicable refund, it is our experience that the reciept of a credit can take up to 90 days to fully complete. It is best to remain patient and allow the process to unfold.  If a charge back has been submitted, ProfileSupply will not be able to credit the customer for a return until the third party charge back negotiation process has been completed.
