What About Sales Tax?
At the time of order Paparazzi Accessories charges you the sales tax for your location, on the full retail cost, not the wholesale cost. This is done to help each consultant; Paparazzi then pays our state and local tax boards that collected tax on our behalf. It is recommended that you pass along that tax charge to your customers, in the exact same amount that Paparazzi charges you, to recoup your money.
What is the Return Policy?
All items ordered from Paparazzi by either the consultant or the customer have a 3-business day window to complete all returns.
Consultant returns are done exclusively through the Paparazzi Accessories website and a photo of the damaged piece must be submitted and approved.
Customer returns are done by calling the Home Office and speaking to a Customer Service representative.
Should a customer receive a broken piece from you it is your choice how you will accept returns and exchanges. You will want to set your policy immediately and make your customers aware.
