Step 1: Request a return authorization number

The first step to process your return is to email us at or call us at 1-800-373-9133 to request a Return Authorization (RA) Number.
Please include the following information in your email or have it available for your call:

Your Order Confirmation Number
The item's product code
Condition of the item(s)
Reason for your return

You will be provided a Return Authorization Number. Please repackage the product in its original condition, including all original packaging and materials (manuals, accessories, etc). Place the product in the shipping box and write the Return Authorization Number on the outside of the shipping package. Do not write on the product packaging; doing so may make the return ineligible.

Once received by our returns department, Advanced Filing Concepts accepts full responsibility for all merchandise. We are not responsible for loss or theft before the merchandise is in our possession. You may wish to insure valuable items, to cover replacement costs in case the package is lost or damaged in transit. If a product is being returned as new but has clearly been used or damaged prior to its return, we reserve the right to refuse refund completely.

Step 2A: Straight Return

If you ordered the item incorrectly or change your mind about an item, we will refund the purchase price of the unopened, re-sellable item, less shipping costs, and restock fees. All unwanted items are subject up to a 25% item price restocking fee. Shipping costs are non-refundable. If your item was damaged in transit, defective or you receive the wrong item, please contact us within 48 hours of receipt of item and we will provide a call tag and arrange for free pickup and free return shipping of the item.

Step 2B: Product Exchange

You can waive the restocking fee by exchanging the unwanted item(s) for an alternate product. To waive your restocking fee, place a new order for the items you want and include a printed copy of your new order with the items you are returning.

Canceling a pending order
