Can you recycle my inventory (CDs and/or vinyl) instead of mailing it back to me?
When recycling is chosen, we work with a company to pick up the CDs and break them back down into their raw materials. The recycling company can then resell the raw materials, keep CDs out of landfills, and prevent CDs from showing up at retail stores or online as used or discount merchandise.
When you receive your return notification you will have the option to recycle your inventory or have it sent back to you for a fee.
How much will shipping cost?
Shipping costs our standard rate per disc, depending on the method you choose. You can see that information when you log into your CD Baby account and click on "Inventory" from your account dashboard.
How long do I have to let you know?
You will have 60 days from the time we send your return notification.
I just sent you inventory, are you going to mail it right back to me?
Yes. We apologize that the request overlapped with the closure notice.
I currently have no inventory, do I need to do anything?
