Q. Do I still need to upload a PDF if I want the member to destroy the product in lieu of a return?

A.  You will need to either reject or authorize the return (including providing a PDF) to avoid an escalation to our Member Services team.  We suggest you authorize and use the PDF to provide the member instructions on how to destroy and confirm back to you.  Sellers would then follow the standard process to refund the member as they would do today.
