Does a brand new camera have a shutter count or should it be zero?

Seems equitable. If the option of returning a fully-functional purchased item for a full refund is important to you, then the possibility of getting that same item that someone else returned is also part of the deal.

Chris, you may be gullible to accept returned goods but most of us would expect brand new products when we pay the full retail price.

Gamarala, if I was the gullible one, why would I be setting you straight on how they do business? If you don't like it, don't do business with merchants who accept returns for no valid (defect) reason. If you do, inspect the items you get carefully, check the shutter index if it is a camera body, and if you don't like them, return them. Simple as that.
