Zola offers free returns within 90 days of delivery for most items sold on Zola. Items must be unused and in the original retail packaging. We are not able to accept returns on items that are used or do not have the original retail packaging. Zola anticipates that all returns will be made in the original shipping box and so cannot provide additional compensation for boxes or packaging material needed to mail your return back.

We reserve the right to refuse a return if an item is not returned in its original condition, including all packaging and tags.

The following items on Zola are final sale and not eligible for return:
− Perishable items
− Furniture items that you have assembled
− Gift cards
− Redeemed experiences
− Monogrammed items
− Custom orders
− All Zola Invites + Paper products

If you are unsure about whether your item is eligible for return, you can check the product description page or email support@zola.com.

Virtual Exchanges/Returns

If you are the wedding couple and a guest chooses to purchase a gift for you, Zola will hold a Zola Stored Value for you in the amount of the purchase of that item. When you request shipment, the Zola Stored Value will be applied to pay for your gift in full no matter the cost of the item at the time of shipping. Prior to requesting the shipment of your gift, you can retain it as a Zola Stored Value in the original amount and use it to select another gift. Your guests will not be notified if you retain their gift as a Zola Stored Value. And we will keep track of the gift they originally purchased for you in your Thank You Manager so you can still send an appropriate thank you note.

Zola Stored Value never expires and can be used for any physical product or experience that Zola sells. Zola Stored Value cannot be redeemed for cash or be applied toward items purchased from another website, cash gifts or Honeymoon Funds. In addition, Zola Stored Values cannot be retroactively applied to past orders.

Credits and Refunds

Registry Orders

If you are the wedding couple and are returning a gift you received from someone else, your refund will be in the form of Zola Stored Value. The Zola Stored Value will be placed into your account once your return has been processed and can be redeemed at any time after that.

Please note the value of your Zola Stored Value will be for the value that your guest paid when making the purchase which may be different from the retail price of the item at any given time.

Zola Stored Values never expire and can be used for any physical product or experience that Zola sells.

All Other Orders

If you are returning an item you purchased yourself, we will refund your original form of payment. Your refund will be issued once your return has been processed.

Third Party and External Items

Zola’s registry service allows couples to add items from other stores so they can manage their registry all in one place. Please note that items purchased from other websites (ex. Amazon, Target, etc.) are subject to the return policy of the store from which they were purchased.

Crate and Barrel Items

Effective October 1, Zola offers an assortment of Crate and Barrel branded products for purchase in our store that are shipped and sold by Zola. They may only be returned with Zola and cannot be returned to Crate and Barrel. Zola Stored Value cannot be used to purchase items at a Crate and Barrel branded retail store or website.

Defective Items

If the item is defective within 90 days of delivery, please contact customer service at support@zola.com and provide a photo of any visible defects as well as any information pertaining to the issue, regular care and use, and any possible troubleshooting of the issue. For all other defective items, please refer to the manufacturer’s warranty.

If you are the couple and a replacement is not desired for a damaged or defective item for the item you received, the value of the gift will be issued in Zola Stored Value to your Zola account.

Lost Packages

Registry Orders

By default, Zola is a hold registry and we encourage couples to hold the shipment of their gifts until such a time they are able to receive them. Should a package go missing in transit, please contact customer service at support@zola.com within 21 days of delivery. After 21 days, we may not be able to replace your order.
