- In order to process a return, Essence must receive the original box, manual(s), batteries, and all other materials that came with the shipment in order to become eligible to receive a store credit, refund, or exchange on that product. This includes any and all original packing items such as Styrofoam, plastic coverings and/or cardboard inserts. Each returned product (and included items) must be in like-new condition, fully functional and without any damage, as determined by, and at the discretion of, the Inspection Department staff.
- Essence will not be held responsible for products damaged during the return shipping process. Products damaged during the return shipping process will not be considered in like-new condition. Damage is considered any loss in functionality of the product through use, wear, transport, or aesthetic issues including, but not limited to; permanent scuffs, dents or scratches, or any other issue discovered by the inspection staff which may impede the ability to re-sell the product at full-market value.
- If a shipment originally qualified for Free Shipping and the returned item is a non-defective product, the original shipping cost may be deducted from the total of the applicable refund. Some returns are also subject to a 20% restocking fee determined at the discretion of Essence.
- Special Order items (as indicated on the product webpage) are non-returnable/refundable.
- Shipping and handling charges on qualifying orders may not be reimbursed unless it is determined that Essence is responsible for the issue necessitating the return of the product(s).
- In order to return merchandise, customers must first contact Essence by email to request a Return Manufacturer Authorization (RMA) Number. The customer may request this number via email or letter. The customer must state the reason for return when requesting an RMA. This initiates the process for submitting a return for review by the inspection staff for a store credit, refund or exchange. Once a request for a RMA number has been submitted, Essence will respond with an email stating the requirements for return within 1-3 business days of the request.
- Once an RMA is issued (by email) – it is valid for 14 business days. The return shipment must be dropped off and processed by a shipping carrier before this timeframe expires. After 14 days, the RMA will be canceled and returns will no longer be accepted on that merchandise.
- Returned products may be subject to a restocking fee of up to 25% of the original sales cost in addition to the shipping fees, when applicable. Typical restocking fees will be 20% of the original purchase price. Restocking fees will may also be determined at the discretion of Essence based on the quality of the product upon inspection. A restocking fee is assessed when appropriate and as applicable within the Terms and Conditions agreed upon by the customer by completing a purchase and conducting a transaction for goods services with Essence. As such, Essence reserves the right to charge a restocking fee on any and all products it deems necessary when accepting a returned item. By completing a transaction, a customer agrees to these terms.
- In rare occurrences Essence may determine a higher restocking fee of 25% is applicable. This is reserved for situations in which it can reasonably be considered and established, that light aesthetic damage is visible on the returned product and therefore it cannot be sold at full-market and/or open box value. Again, this will be at the determination and discretion of the Essence inspection staff.
- When a returned product fails to meet the established standards or criteria determined by the inspection staff, the return is rejected. When this occurs, no store credit, refund, or exchange will be approved and the product in question will be returned to the client.
- Please note that Freight, white glove services, and any special delivery arrangements are non-refundable in the event of returns or cancellation of orders. These services are provide for at additional cost to the client when appropriate or at the client’s request. These charges are non-refundable.
- Essence reserves the right to refuse retail service to any client for excessive cancellations and/or returns (three or more during any three month timeframe). Any client meeting these criteria may be subject to having their account locked, blocked, and/or deleted at the the company’s discretion and future orders may not be processed and/or fulfilled. Essence reserves the right to cancel/refund any future orders placed by clients who have been determined to fall under this category for repeated requests for cancellations and/or returns.
How will my order ship?
Essence will ship a customer’s order using the fastest, safest, and most reliable method possible. The most common carriers primarily used by Essence are UPS, USPS and FEDEX. Every product on the website has been carefully selected to ship by a particular shipping method in order to provide the customer with an optimal delivery experience. When a customer places an order, UPS Ground is set as the default shipping method for each product. Essence reserves the right to select a different shipping carrier, for any reason, to process and ship an order after a transaction has been completed.
Will I receive a Tracking Number?
When an order ships, the customer will be notified via the email address provided in an account or during guest checkout. Included in this email will be a Tracking Number for each shipment, or for each individual parcel within an order shipping in more than one box. Essence encourages customers to track their package online or over the phone with the shipment carrier. Most shipping companies will provide an estimated delivery date. Be sure to contact Essence if anything seems unusual with the progress of the shipment. If an order has been shipped but the customer is unable to locate a tracking notification email, please check the “SPAM” folder or contact Essence at 727-580-4393 for more information.
On rare occasions, a shipment will not have an associated tracking number. When this occurs, Essence will do it’s best to ensure the customer is made aware of this fact after the transaction has taken place. In even rarer cases, providing the tracking number is not possible before delivery of a package. If a tracking number was not sent out before delivery, Essence may add the tracking number to the account history later (if it is received following delivery) in order to demonstrate proof of delivery. If this happens, Essence will not generate an email to the customer updating them with the tracking number, but will simply add it to the customer’s account.
Tracking Numbers are generally issued to the client within 1-3 business days following the shipment of the product.
How are small parcels shipped?
Whenever possible, Essence will ship smaller, lighter items via UPS or USPS. These companies provide the fastest and most reliable method of shipping available for many items sold by Essence. Depending on how close a customer is to the shipping warehouse, an item will typically arrive between 1 and 6 business days after it leaves the warehouse. Shipping timeframes may be affected by natural disasters, inclement weather, or other unpredictable interruptions in air or ground transport, etc. (this list is not all encompassing).
Essence is not responsible for any item lost, stolen, or damaged after it has been received by the customer. Essence is not responsible for the condition or safety of an item until it is returned and is once again in Essence’s custody, to be assessed for potential store credit, refund, or exchange.
How long after placing my order will my package ship?
Most local warehouse in-stock items typically ship within 1-3 business days following order placement. Local warehouse orders placed before 12:00 noon EST Monday – Friday are processed the same day that the order is placed. Non-local warehouse orders are sent to a shipping or manufacturing warehouse the same or next business day (Monday through Friday) and most are shipped within 24-72 hours of processing through the warehouse. Orders received after 12:00 noon EST will generally be processed before 9:00am the following business day (excluding Saturdays and Sundays). Essence will make every effort to meet shipping deadlines as specified here.
Occasionally, orders may be delayed by unforeseen circumstances or difficulties. Due to the logistics of extensive inventories and availability at various warehouses and distributors, many items are drop-shipped to customers directly from affiliate warehouses, distributors or manufacturers. In some cases, shipment of these orders may be delayed for reasons beyond Essence’s control. When this occurs, Essence will make every effort to inform the client at the contact information (email and/or phone number) provided by the customer at the time of purchase. Essence will make every attempt to keep the client informed of any delay or continued delay.
Rarely, an order may be cancelled at the discretion of Essence due to unforeseen complications arising from (but not limited to), website programming errors, erroneous price listings, discontinued products, or other errors. While these situations occur rarely, Essence reserves the right to cancel any order, with or without notification to the client prior to cancellation. In these circumstances, the client will be notified immediately following cancellation or after a refund has been initiated.
Will Essence ship to an address that is not my home address?
Yes. However, if there is any indication that a credit card is being used without consent of the cardholder, Essence will attempt to verify with the cardholder that the purchase is authorized before shipment can occur. This may result in a shipping delay. If a purchase cannot be verified or is suspected to be fraud, Essence will cancel and refund the order as quickly as possible. The process of verification, cancellation and refunds can take up to several business days.
Does Essence ship outside of the continental United States?
Yes. Essence will ship outside the continental US and internationally. An International shipment will take longer to process and arrive at its destination than a shipment within the continental US. Essence has no control over a package once it leaves the warehouse. Orders can be delayed at customs when leaving or entering different countries. It’s important for customers to be patient as it may take longer for an international shipment to arrive at its destination. These shipments may be subject to additional local fees which are the sole responsibility of the customer receiving the shipment. Essence is not responsible for the payment of any local fees needed to receive a shipment.
Will the return shipping be free if I need to return an item?
If a customer decides they want to return a non-defective item, Essence is not responsible for the shipping costs to ship the item back to the appropriate warehouse. If the item is defective for any reason, Essence will either send a customer a return shipping label, or will reimburse the cost of return shipping following inspection of the returned item. If it is found not to be defective, customers will not be reimbursed for the shipping costs to or from Essence.
When is Free Shipping available?
Items marked Free Shipping on the product page will ship for free within the Continental United States only. Free Shipping is only offered on shipments totaling $35.00 or more. International shipments (including US States outside of the continental US) will always be charged a shipping and handling fee based on the average USPS rates for shipping to the customers location. Shipping costs are calculated by multiplying the estimated weight of an item(s) by an average shipping and handling cost for that weight through an International Carrier.
Free Shipping does not apply to any order totaling less than $35.00.
Essence reserves the right to charge a shipping fee at its discretion.
Please keep in mind that Alaska, Hawaii, and US Territories are considered International and therefore are not eligible for the Free Shipping offer.
Who do I contact for any additional questions or concerns regarding a product, order or shipment?
If a customer has questions or concerns regarding a product, order, or shipment and delivery information, please contact the Customer Service Department via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Essence directly at 727-580-4393. Office hours of operation are Monday-Friday 9 am – 5 pm EST. An email request for information will typically be answered on the same or next business day.
