Return Policy

Zarifa's extends a 30-day return policy on any items ordered from her website, with the exception of clothing articles and belly dance accessories, under the below conditions:

  1. The item is undamaged and can be sold as new; if sold in manufacturer packaging, it must be returned in the original packaging,
  2. the customer agrees to pay return shipment,
  3. the customer agrees to a $5.00 restocking fee per returned item,
  4. the customer understands that the refund is for the item retail cost at the time of purchase and does not include shipping and handling charges,
  5. the item is returned within 30 days of the purchase date.

Due to abuse of our return policy, Zarifa's can no longer accept returns on clothing or other fabric articles. At her discretion, Zarifa may consider exchanges on items but please contact her to discuss the issue. Items returned without prior contact with Zarifa's ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR ANY REFUND.

If the article is still new, at Zarifa's discretion she may arrange for you to return the article and perform an exchange or refund. Under no circumstances can she accept returns on any fabric articles that have been washed, or articles that have been contaminated with perfumes, smoke, pet odors, or otherwise soiled in any way.

All approved monetary returns are performed in the form of refunds to your credit card account and will not be credited until the next billing cycle after the refund. This is a policy of the banking and credit card institutions and there is nothing Zarifa's can do to accelerate the process.

Loss or damage during shipping: Zarifa's uses United States Postal Service shipping. We no longer ship UPS, sorry. At the time of this policy update, this website supports optional USPS shipping insurance and select international shipping destinations. Zarifa's cannot be held liable for lost or damaged parcels, so please insure your shipment.
