Official Product Return Policy

CANCELLATIONS - RETURNS - DAMAGES - EXCHANGES - REFUNDS - BACK-ORDERS
(This Return Policy went into effect on April 25, 2008)

INSTRUCTIONS FOR RETURNING A PRODUCT FOR CREDIT

(A) You will need a return authorization number and label from us before you return a product to the warehouse.
DO NOT RETURN A PRODUCT TO OUR OFFICE ADDRESS, IT WILL BE REFUSED AND RETURNED. A request for returning an item for credit should be made by email within 10 days of receiving the product. The cost for returning a product for credit is the responsibility of the customer.

(B) An RMA, or Return Merchandise Authorization, is valid for 30 days within which time the manufacturer must receive the returned product. The RMA is only good for the product named and must be purchased by the person returning the product. YOU MUST USE THE RMA LABEL TO SHIP YOUR RETURN, OTHERWISE IT MAY BE REFUSED BY OUR FACILITY.

(C) All returns should be made by prepaid shipment, the shipping cost is not refundable.

(D) All returns for credit should be in their original packing and cartons(s). The product should be packed as it was originally shipped. All paper work must be included with the returned products, including instruction material. There may be a fee for replacing any such material.

(E) Since all UPS ground orders are shipped free of charge (this company pays the original shipping cost for all products shipped inside the USA via UPS ground service), if a customer returns a product for credit, the customer will be refunded the cost of their product minus a 10% fee (10% of the total amount of the order including our shipping charge) as a restocking fee.

BACK-ORDERS
If we notify you that your product is not in our warehouse and it has been placed on back-order but you do not wish to receive the product at a later date, it is the customer's responsibility to notify our company to cancel the back-order. If the product is shipped and the customer does not want the product, then it is the customer's responsibility to pay the shipping charges to return the product.
If the customer cancels his order IN WRITING before the product is in our warehouse, then the back-order will be cancelled.


FEES THAT ARE APPLIED TO RETURNS FOR CREDIT ONLY


A breakdown of the fees applied to returns for credit is shown below.

(1) 10% of the total amount of the products purchased for the receiving/restocking and examination fee.

(2) If you used a credit or debit card to pay for your purchase, this company was charged a 4% transaction fee to bill your credit/debit card, this amount is not returned to a business when a customer returns a product, therefore, an additional 4% feel is applied to a return for credit.

(3) If you are making a 'return for credit' which means that you are not exchanging your product for another product, but are requesting a refund, the customer is responsible for the shipping charges that are incurred by returning the product.

(4) If you ship your return to the incorrect address, we will then have to ship the return to the correct address which is our warehouse in Texas.

THIS IS WHY IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT A CUSTOMER CONTACTS US BY EMAIL IF THEY WISH TO RETURN A PRODUCT FOR REFUND.
RealCook@aol.com We do not ship orders from our offices in North Carolina, so if your return is shipped to the incorrect facility, we will have to charge you the cost of shipping your return to the correct address in Texas.

The total of the descriptions above will be deducted from a customers return for refund.

Your refund will be processed after the manufacturer has received your products, examined them, `and refunded the cost of the products to The P. B. Helms Company.

ANY RETURN WITHOUT AN AUTHORIZATION WILL BE REFUSED
RETURNS SHIPPED FREIGHT COLLECT WILL BE REFUSED.


It is the responsibility of the customer to research the products as well as all other aspects of their order before actually placing the order.

We ask that our customers be completely sure that they are ordering exactly what they wish to receive - that a product is never ordered on a “whim” - that customers do not place an order for a product that they have questions about. We ask that customers do their comparison shopping, their research, and ask questions on products, shipping, etc. before placing their order.

Our customer service will help you find the information that you need in order to be fully informed about any product you are interested in.

than happy to answer your questions.

We ask that customers do their comparison shopping, their research, and ask questions on products, shipping, etc. before placing their order. Our company is charged a 4% fee for each credit card transaction. Because of credit card frauds, all credit cards are billed immediately upon receiving the order, and before the order is processed by our distribution center. If we allow an order to be canceled, this fee is not refunded by the bank to our company, therefore, one cancellation can cost our company.
This is why CANCELLATIONS OF ORDERS ARE NOT ACCEPTED.
No refund will be applied, and the order will be shipped to the customer.

  • The exchange must be approved by this company.

    as all other aspects of their order before actually placing the order.
