RETURNS

We strive for 100% customer satisfaction and we stand behind the quality of the products we sell. You may return most new, unopened items within 30 days of delivery for a full refund of the purchase price, less the original shipping fees. If the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.), we'll also pay the return shipping costs .

To complete your return, please send us an email @ ShopZoo@SanDiegoZoo.org. Let us know your order number and the item(s) you would like to return, along with the reason why. We will then email you instructions to process your return.

Refunds
Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. When your return is approved, your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your original method of payment.

You should expect to receive your refund within two weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper, the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it, and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days). We'll notify you via e-mail of your refund once we've received and processed the returned item.

Exchanges
Need a different size? If you need to exchange it for the same item, send us an email at ShopZoo@SanDiegoZoo.org. Let us know your order number we will then email you a return shipping label. Once we receive it back, we will issue a refund for the purchase price of the item, less original shipping fees.  You can place a new order for the replacement item at any time.

Shipping
If you are shipping an item over $100, you should consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We can’t guarantee that we will receive your returned item.
