Shipping & Returns
We can ship to virtually any address in the world. Note that there are restrictions on some products, and some products cannot be shipped to international destinations.
When you place an order, we will estimate shipping and delivery dates for you based on the availability of your items and the shipping options you choose. Depending on the shipping provider you choose, shipping date estimates may appear on the shipping quotes page.
Please also note that the shipping rates for many items we sell are weight-based. The weight of any such item can be found on its detail page. To reflect the policies of the shipping companies we use, all weights will be rounded up to the next full pound.
We ship EVERYTHING with a little extra care
We make sure your order gets delivered to you in perfect condition. Each shipment is hand-packaged by our team with the utmost care and attention to detail.

We'll pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error if you are located in the United States (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.). Defective items are eligible for direct replacement only. If replacement item is out of stock then or customer is unwilling to take a direct replacement a store credit can be applied once item is returned.
You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).

If the item has not been returned 30 days after issue of an RMA#, all sales are final. Defective music can only be exchanged for the same title if available. If not available or customer refuses the same item a store credit will be applied instead. Consumables (cleaning fluids, etc.) and phono cartridges are non-returnable unless defective, and then for exchange only. In the case of phono cartridges, your cartridge must be returned and deemed defective by the manufacturer before it will be exchanged. If you would like a replacement shipped immediately, Elusive Disc will charge you for the replacement item and issue a credit upon receipt of the defective or damaged item.
Your return package must include the following: an RMA#, a note detailing the reason for the return, all original packing materials (including cables, power supplies, instructions, remote controls, warranty cards, etc.), and must arrive in resalable condition. If these instructions are not followed your return will not be accepted.

If a return is sent via US Mail (and not insured), then the customer accepts all responsibility if the package is lost, stolen, or damaged in transit. Elusive Disc is not liable for any uninsured packages.
