How To Ship Your Seagate Product

Need to return an item? No problem! It’s easy.
Just follow the simple steps below.

Before You Mail

  1. In order for your return to be processed, it will need a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number. The number serves as Seagate’s confirmation that your product is under a valid warranty and can be returned. If you don’t have it yet, you can obtain it by registering your device and requesting the number. You can also view a quick video about the RMA process on that same page.
  2. Print your packing slip and label. They will be provided to you after you enter your RMA number.
