Eligible Returns

  • Condition of Returned Product: Returned product must be in sellable condition: unopened in original packaging with no stickers or markings.
  • Returns of Value Packs, Kits, or Sets: All original components must be returned in sellable condition. Partial or pro-rated credit will not be issued for incomplete packages. For example, if you only use two of four items in a Value Pack, Kit, or Set we will not issue credit for the two unused items.

Return Shipping

  • Customers are responsible for shipping costs incurred to return resources to Group. However, you are not responsible for return shipping costs for damaged or defective products or other issues for which Group is responsible.
