Please note that there may be certain orders that we are unable to accept and must cancel. ZAFUL reserves the right, at sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any order for any reason. Some situations that may result in your order being canceled include limitations on quantities available for purchase, inaccuracies or errors in product or pricing information, or problems identified by our credit and fraud avoidance department. We may also require additional verifications or information before accepting any order. We will contact you if all or any portion of your order is canceled or if additional information is required to accept your order.


ZAFUL is not responsible for late deliveries for special occasions, such as birthdays, or other events. We encourage customers to place their order in advance to ensure there is enough time to receive their item.


We have informed our customers of the peak Christmas season in advance via banners and newsletters, and offered suggestions for the final order date and shipping methods for this period. We can therefore not be held responsible if an item does not arrive in time for Christmas.


All orders reported as "delivered" by shipping companies are considered delivered. ZAFUL cannot be made liable of non-delivery in this case.


Shipments


All consignee names, address and payers name should be valid. Certain countries request that the consignee submit their ID or passport to clear the package or for payment verification purposes. It is the customers sole responsible for the accuracy of data that they provide to us. Should any information be incorrect and prevent any shipment or deliveries or customs clearance, we will not held responsible and will not offer any compensation in such cases. If a delivery fails for any reason and the address sent to was the correct address as provided by the customer, ZAFUL cannot be held liable if a package is returned to us.


Following order dispatch, transportation is the sole responsibility of the third-party logistics company. During this stage, full ownership of the product(s) belongs to the buyer; all associated liability and risks during transportation shall be borne by the buyer. Therefore ZAFUL strongly recommends all customers to purchase shipping insurance during the checkout. This ensures that if there are any issue during the delivery process ZAFUL will send you the same product free of charge. If the item becomes unavailable we will offer you alternative refund options. Orders that do not have shipping insurance will not be the responsibility of ZAFUL in the event that there is an issue during the shipping process.


All shipments are sent from different warehouses and are delivered duty unpaid. Consequently, any and all customs or import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. If any, these charges must be paid by the customers. Should the customers refuse the package due to import duties or taxes, they take full liability for all the costs involved in the process. Due to customs regulations, please note that ZAFUL cannot declare purchased items as a gift or list an amount lower than the actual product price. Whatever the customer orders is what we ship. We cannot be held liable for the customer receiving the wrong item if they placed the wrong order.


Please let us know as soon as possible if you have not received your package. With standard shipping, after 3 months from the date we ship your package (for Latin American we will extend this to 4 months for postal deliveries), we will no longer be able to offer any compensation. All expedited delivery issues must also be reported within 3 months from the shipment date. Also kindly note that this does not apply to any packages sent via expedited shipping methods and shown as delivered on the shipping company's tracking site.


Order Cancelation


Please kindly note that only orders that are in the paid, processing or partially shipped status may be modified or canceled. All other orders cannot be changed. In the event that you wish to cancel a shipped or packed order, we kindly suggest that you accept the package and refer to Zaful Return Policy for more information.
