When you buy an item at zouf.biz, your products purchased are shipped directly from any one or more of our approved suppliers located in France. Each supplier has its own shipping terms and costs. To make it easier and more cost effective for you, zouf.biz has set up a fix shipping cost worked on the average weight for the whole order, disregarding the method of shipment and whether it comes from multiple suppliers or not. Your products may also arrive separately, but this won’t make your shipping cost more expensive.
Dispatch and delivery times vary according to the item and the supplier. It could take from 4 to 10 working days of the order being placed; working days are Monday to Friday, excluding French public holidays. As we process your order, we will inform you by e-mail if any products you order turn out to be unavailable. We will also send you a shipping confirmation email for every product ordered.

Items that are expressly made-to-order are exempt from this and are not entitled to be returned in accordance with Distance Shipping Regulations. We can only accept the return of opened items if they are faulty, damaged or incorrect.
If you do cancel the contract within this time and that the product has not yet been dispatched, any payment made by you will be refunded in full.

It is your responsibility to take care to ensure that goods being returned are protected and securely packed. We will not be able to give refunds on goods damaged whilst being returned to us because they have been insufficiently packed and protected. The original delivery note should be enclosed with the goods. You are strongly recommended to obtain proof of posting as we cannot accept liability should the goods be lost during their return to us.
Once we have received the goods and are able to confirm that the above conditions have been met, a refund will be made. We will contact you by email to advise you of this. Refunds will only be made to the original purchaser, using the same method by which the original order was paid.

- Where you are returning an item that was part of a larger order, we will refund the cost of the item and the charge for delivery of that particular item.
