Options for Repair

Zebra offers repair service for both in-warranty and out of warranty products.

  • In-Warranty Repair: Zebra will validate that your malfunctioning product is in-warranty and will provide you with a repair authorization number for you to use when returning your malfunctioning product for repair.
  • Out of Warranty Repair: Zebra will validate that your malfunctioning product is out of warranty and will quote you the cost to repair your product. If you choose to proceed with the repair you will need to provide a method of payment (payment options vary by region and customer type), to pay for the repair. Once you have provided your payment method, we will provide you with a repair authorization number for you to use when returning your malfunctioning product for repair.
  • Payment Methods for Out of Warranty Repair: Customers in Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) and North America (NA) have the option to pay by credit card or by purchase order, if the customer has a financial relationship with Zebra. Customers located in Asia Pacific (APAC) and Latin America (LA) can only pay by purchase order. In this scenario, customers must have a financial relationship with Zebra.

How to Request to Repair

  • Requests for repair should be submitted using Zebra’s Repair Order Portal (ROP), our online repair request system.
  • Alternatively, you can contact Zebra’s Repair Help Desk team using the contact number most convenient for you based on your location for assistance to create a repair request.
  • Once you have submitted a repair request, you will receive a separate automated email with your repair authorization number from our system mailbox, with attached shipping instructions.
  • Repair requests for malfunctioning dongles can not be submitted using the Zebra Repair Order Portal. You must first contact the FrontLine Support Team, who will troubleshoot the issue with the dongle and provide direction to resolve the issue.
