USA Sales Tax Info

International Customers – Explanation of Tariffs / Taxes
Little Fish AUDIO DOES NOT QUOTE OR COLLECT TAXES OUTSIDE OF Florida, USA.
We do not quote or collect taxes, however many international customers will be required to pay import duties and fees to receive merchandise purchased from outside of their region. It is your responsibility to know these charges before placing an order with us, no matter where you live in the world.
We cannot claim lower or “gift” value of items to save you from paying duties, it’s not within our power to alter documents for this purpose. Please don’t waste our time emailing us about this, we will not risk our ability to feed our families to save you taxes based on where you live (and why would you ask somebody you trust to lie for you?).
International Customers – Size Limitations and Dimensional Surcharges
We prefer shipping USPS Postal (Priority or Express) as much as most of our international friends like it, because most countries charge lower fees (or no fees) to collect duties and taxes. FedEx is notorious for assessing higher costs for you to accept the package on your end, “brokerage fees” that we typically don’t see using USPS Postal. Also, be aware that FedEx can greatly increase in ship costs due to package sizes and in such an event, you will be contacted by us before processing to ensure you understand the full FedEx pricing. While the postal services do have limitations on size to each country (you can check www.usps.com and find your own country’s rules for incoming packages), as long as your package is under the limit there is NO additional fee.
Overall USPS Priority or Express Mail is preferred, we have had as close to 100% success with this that anyone could expect. Express service can cost a bit more, but is faster and generally the tracking info is more detailed.
International Customers – Brands We Cannot Ship Outside of the U.S.A.
Due to restrictions and dealer agreements, the following brands only ship within the United States in most cases:
Don’t have a local dealer for the above listed brands?
Ask us in advance, if we can’t find one for you we may be able to sell it to you!
If You Want to Know, Just Ask!
It’s always better to ask in advance if you are not certain about any of our policies or products. Do not hesitate to contact us to be sure. Also, due to the nature of shipping and receiving we reserve the right to operate outside of these general guidelines as necessary. That does NOT mean we will take the opportunity to do something evil, happy customers make us a happy dealer. 🙂
- Privacy & Security
We live in the same world as you, and don’t like it either when say…you subscribe to a magazine for “free” and all of a sudden your junk mail for “related offers” rolls in ten fold. It’s also about the worst thing in the world when you sign up for a “contest” or other event, and supply a phone number…only to be added to every crazy call center’s list to be pummeled and bothered for the rest of your days. Heck, even some of those people standing by the side of the road raising money for who knows what bother us.
You can rest assured that Little Fish Audio will never, ever share your information on any “spam” level with anybody.
- Your address is used to verify your payment method, and supplied to warehouses for shipment info
- Your phone number is used to verify payment method, and for us to contact you in case of a problem
- Your email address is used to confirm your order status and provide tracking information
By joining our mailing list via the home page or during checkout, you agree to receive periodic yet meaningful email contacts from us and us alone. Our mailers aren’t very frequent, they’re not cluttered up impossible to read flyers with exclamation points all over the place. Our email subscribers enjoy real information in a concise effort to keep you informed of specials, new products and other generally good info we have to share.
We couldn’t rest easy any other way.
If you still have questions, feel free to contact us concerning privacy or other issues.

- Returns & Replacements
Happy customers make us a happy dealer. This is a two way street, and both parties should be pleased with a transaction so that one day, when either of us is reflecting back over life for various reasons, at least one of the things that doesn’t bug us is some gear transaction we had with someone who wouldn’t play fair. The following info is as close to fair as we think we both can keep, and still smile about it.
Normally stocked items, particularly those we recommend to you personally for your needs, are covered by a 7 day “in your hands” return policy. This means from the day of delivery you have 7 days to be sure it’s everything you need it to be, or we’ll work it back out of your hands. You will be responsible for shipping both ways, even if it was marked as free on your invoice. There is a minimum 5% restocking fee on refunds, there is no restocking fee when you work with us on an exchange towards a reasonably equal value product. In other words, in the rare event of un-happiness let’s use the item as a point of reference (ie “it’s too dark” or “I want more character”) and exchange ideas on what will suit you better.
There is also no restocking fee for store credit to be used now or in the future, when the above return conditions have been met.
Exceptions to these rules are damages to packing materials and items, lost items, and other things we must charge back for or refuse the return of.
No returns allowed on
- Items marked ‘Special Order’
- Items marked ‘Custom Built’
- Orders Drop Shipped from the manufacturer (that we do not stock)
- Modified Items
- Used Items
- Discontinued Items
- Rebate Items
- PCI cards
You must contact us in advance to approve the return / exchange, and to receive an authorized RMA # (Return Merchandise Authorization Number). We cannot accept unauthorized returns.
Ask in advance to be sure if there’s any doubt.
Defective Returns / Exchanges
These are handled on a case by case basis, and we bend over backwards and work with manufacturers to get you taken care of quickly and in the right manner. You must contact us immediately upon discovering a defect in any ZenPro Audio acquired gear so we can do our best for you.
For various reasons (customs, taxes, etc) we cannot offer an open door return / exchange policy. You will always be taken care of in the case of warranty (USA based) and other defect claims as best we can. You are responsible for shipping here, and sometimes back depending on what is ultimately discovered with the gear in question. We will always do our best to work with you within our stated guidelines, feel free to ask questions before your purchase.

If you receive “free” custom cables with an item and return the purchased item for any reason, you must keep the cable portion of the order and will be charged standard web pricing on the custom cables.
