Obtaining a Return Authorization Number

Prior to returning a product please obtain a Return Authorization number from us. Once the return has been approved, you will receive a Return Authorization (RA) number to help you track the return through the process and to ensure proper credit is received. Shipping instructions for the returned item(s) will be provided at the time the Return Authorization number is issued. Please follow these instructions closely.

All returns must be labeled with the RA number in order to insure credit. Do not write directly on the product, it must be in resalable condition or Alder Technology will not accept it. Reference the number on the shipping label. Product is then shipped back to the address received with your RA.

Types of Returns and What You Can Expect

Ordering Error Claims

We understand that items are sometimes ordered in error and we are happy to help you when this occurs. We simply ask that you return the items in the original packaging. We will then re-ship the correct product for the applicable shipping fees, rather than the flat rate, plus a 15% re-stock fee to cover the cost of the return. If the original packaging has been damaged please notify us when you initiate the return.

Damaged or Lost Shipment Claims

Please take a moment to inspect your shipments when they arrive. If the packaging is damaged and the enclosed item appears to be damaged, it’s important that you keep the original package and call us to file a claim with the carrier. Alder Technology will only file claims on orders shipped with Alder Technology shipping accounts.

Manufacturing Defect Claims

When a product is thought to contain a manufacturing defect, we may request that photos or samples be provided for evaluation prior to a Return Authorization number being issued.

Alder Technology Shipping Error Claims

We ask that you make a claim with us within five working days from the delivery date in order to ensure a refund can be issued or a replacement product can be sent.

Order Cancellations

Due to the quick turn around time in which orders are processed, we cannot guarantee the cancellation of an order.
