Delivery
Delivery of orders will be 3-5 weeks after receipt of orders, and subject to credit approval and availability.

Back Orders
Our overseas factories are occasionally subject to delays beyond our control. Although we make every effort to ship quickly and completely, we draw your attention to our back order procedures: Backorders on new items are NOT canceled, regardless of age or value; backorders on established items which are either five months old or less than $50 cost are canceled. You may specify any other alternate instructions regarding cancellations of orders or backorders as you wish.

Cancellations
All cancellations must be received in writing.

Priority
Orders are shipped on a first-come first-served basis, so there is some advantage in ordering early and leaving open cancellation dates.

Discontinued Items
Due to manufacturing or other considerations beyond our control, items may be sold out and discontinued without notice. Please accept our apologies if merchandise which you have selected is unavailable because of this.

Returns
No returns will be accepted without prior authorization. Unauthorized returns will not be accepted. Returns which are authorized will be inspected before acceptance and credit is issued. Any product returned for credit must be returned within 30 days of purchase, be factory fresh, packed in original cartons, free of store pricing or markings and must be shipped prepaid. No collect shipments will be accepted. A 20% restocking fee will apply.

Claims
Claims for damages, shortages, substitutes, or defectives may be made only by writing or faxing Zanda Panda Customer Service. Please do not telephone. Claims should be made within one week of shipment and must include the order number or invoice number, item numbers, and quantities involved, and a brief description of the problem.

Damage or Loss in Transit
All shipments leave our warehouse properly packaged for shipment and in good order. The common carrier (UPS, trucking lines, etc) signed a bill of lading accepting the merchandise for delivery to the buyer and the testing to the good order of the shipment. As soon as the bill of lading is signed by the common carrier, the merchandise ceases to be our asset and becomes the asset of the retailer, that is, the buyer (our asset is the account receivable). If there is damage or loss incidental to the carriage and delivery of your order, then you must file a claim with the common carrier. Zanda Panda has no authority or responsibility after the carrier accepts the goods. ICC rule 19 provides for your protection: In the event of any damage or loss, you have the right to make note of that or any other exceptions on the bill of lading the common carrier presents to you, before signing it. The notations you make on the bill of lading are the sole basis for your claim with the carrier. Occasionally there is damage not apparent until the boxes are actually opened; in this event please leave the merchandise in the box and call the carrier to send out a customer service representative to write up the claim. Zanda Panda will gladly assist any customers who feel they are not getting prompt, courteous service from the carrier in the course of filing any claim.

Shipping Terms
Shipments less than 150 pounds are sent via USPS or FedEx and the charges are added to your bill. Shipments more than 150 pounds ship via a freight carrier, freight collect. Please indicate “FedEx only” on your order if you do not wish to receive truck shipments. Sorry, no freight allowances are available.

Credit Policies and Open Account
We are pleased to extend net 30 terms to our customers. Our commitments to our factories and our bankers require that any customer unable to pay within 30 days be put on prepaid only status. Any customer unable to pay within 60 days will be referred to collection.
