CHANGE TO TERMS
Upzy.com reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change the Terms under which Upzy.com is offered. The most current version of the Terms will supersede all previous versions. Upzy.com encourages you to periodically review the Terms to stay informed of our updates.
We offer free shipping to the lower 48 USA states only. We do not offer free shipping to Hawaii or Alaska, or to any destinations outside the USA. In the event of a return/cancelation, we deduct outbound shipping charges from the refund.
Upzy.com does not take responsibility when the item(s) is delivered by FedEx/UPS or any shipping carrier, and the item is reported "lost" or a third party "steals" it from the user's shipping address. Once an order tracking number is provided, it is the user's sole responsibility to track the package and make a full effort to be available to receive the package (unless the shipping carrier loses the package). In a situation where the package is indeed lost and a claim is filed successfully with the shipping carrier, the delivery recipient can either accept a $25 cancellation fee or accept a re-shipment of the item.
For products shipped by freight where the freight carrier needs to make a delivery appointment by calling the user, if the user refuses to be contacted and does not want the product delivered, this is considered rejecting a shipment and the penalties of this rejection will apply (outbound shipping charges, return shipping charges and 15% restocking may apply). If the product cannot be returned as stipulated by certain manufacturers/distributors, then the user waives the right to receive any refund amount as we reserve the right to keep the full amount the user has paid.
ORDER MODIFICATION/CANCELATION POLICY
If you wish to modify or cancel your order, please send an email as soon as possible to email@example.com. We will make every effort to accommodate your request. However, once an order has been submitted we cannot guarantee that the purchase can be modified or canceled. Users can only modify or cancel an order 24 hours before the order ships. For a modification or cancelation to be confirmed, users must receive an email notification that the order has been modified or canceled. If no email notification on order modification or cancelation is received, the order is still being processed and will ship.
Once you have received your online order, please refer to our return instructions included with your shipment.
Upzy.com reserves the right to inquire for additional funds (due to shipping or pricing errors/adjustments) on a user's order. Upzy.com also reserves the right to cancel the order and issue a refund if the user does not agree to submit additional funds.
Upzy.com cannot accommodate automatic exchanges at this time. Please return the original item you wish to exchange using the applicable conditions or guidelines for the exchange item. Please note that exchange orders are subject to product availability. We will inform you if we are unable to fulfill your order.
Once we verify the purchase of the items in your return we will accept the return and process the refund.
Note that once a returned item has been delivered to the original return shipping address, it may take up to 7-14 business days for a refund to be issued. Once issued, it may take a further 3-5 business days for the funds to be credited back to your account. During this processing time, the user may not file a chargeback/dispute/claim for “Credit not processed”. Please see Inquiries/Chargebacks/Disputes section below for further information.
The refund will be issued directly to the Credit/Debit Card or PayPal account used for the original purchase and in the same currency.
There are some items that cannot be returned. These are usually heavy-duty items such as large go karts and ATVs. Due to the nature of the item, the manufacturer/distributor does not allow its return once purchased. Upzy.com will state the non-returnable nature in the product description for these items. Built-to-order items such as standing wheelchairs also cannot be returned, as these wheelchairs are built according to body measurements of the individual user.
For any warranty/aftersales issues with your item(s), you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may contact the manufacturer/distributor, but Upzy.com must also be informed of any issues. Upzy.com will try our best to resolve any issues in accordance with our and the manufacturer’s/distributor's policies, however we cannot guarantee that it will always be to the user's satisfaction. It is the user's responsibility to work with Upzy.com to resolve any warranty/aftersales issues.
Some items in our store require assembly and potentially some adjustments/modifications/minor fixes to allow it to function to the user’s satisfaction, professional assembly/expertise might be required (depending on the customer’s experience and abilities). Please note that Upzy does not pay or reimburse for any labor or service costs if the item is taken to a professional.
In addition, if user decides to adjust/modify/fix the item themselves using parts they purchased themselves, Upzy does not pay or reimburse for the parts or labor incurred.
Ultimately, user bears sole responsibility for any charges or changes to the product using outsourced labor and non-warranty parts.
By placing an order with Upzy.com, once that order is processed the user agrees to waive the right to file an inquiry/chargeback/dispute/claim with the user's credit card company or with Paypal, under any circumstance.

MODIFYING REASONS FOR INQUIRY/CHARGEBACK/DISPUTE/CLAIM
If a user does submit an inquiry/chargeback/dispute/claim chargeback with Upzy.com, the user agrees to not modify the reason.

If an inquiry/chargeback/dispute/claim is filed, the user agrees to keep the reason consistent through the process. Any modifications made will alert Upzy.com on potential fraudulent activity. Upzy.com reserves the right to report the user to the proper authorities if such fraudulent activity is detected.
Product images and specifications may vary with the actual product from time to time.
Unless otherwise stated, it should be assumed that all products require some sort of assembly, which Upzy.com is not responsible for. Please check with Upzy.com first before your purchase. If you are not satisfied with product nature, you may return the items per our policy, but you may not file a chargeback/inquiry/dispute.
Built-to-order products will be identified either in the product description or in an email once order has been placed. Users are strongly recommended to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any clarifying questions when order has been placed. Once the built-to-order process has started for the product and Upzy.com has informed the user, the user may be responsible for up to 50% of the original purchase order amount, excluding discounts, if the user decides to cancel.
Some products may not be in stock even though Upzy.com reflects they are in stock.
