12 Month Warranty

Gadget-Shop.co.za can only offer problem-solving for faulty products which either shipped in an unsatisfactory condition, or developed internal faults naturally during usage without issues of physical damage or unsupported usage. In other words if the product is broken you can contact us to send it back for a repair.

Warranty By Default Covers Repair

Gadget-Shop.co.za's warranty covers the repairs done on your faulty item, and will return it for free. Other compensation is not normally available if the product can be repaired promptly.

When does the warranty period begin?

The warranty period begins from the receipt of the items or 7 days after the order was sent out. The period is exactly 365 days from that time.

Who pays for what?

  • Cost of shipping a presumably faulty item back to Gauteng / China: Paid by the customer, cannot be reimbursed.
  • Cost of supplier internal freight, and import duties, and restocking process on the Hong Kong or China sides: waived for faulty products and paid by Gadget-Shop.co.za in full. In other words our supplier’s QC engineers will test the products you ship back and, if products are confirmed faulty, we will offer compensation (repair, replacement, credit or refund). However, for products that are tested and turn out to be in good working condition, Gadget-Shop.co.za will not accept any responsibility and may charge a restocking fee at our own discretion. Functional products will not be reimbursed.
  • Cost of shipping repaired item back to customer from suppliers: paid by Gadget-Shop.co.za in full. In order to facilitate customs clearance, we will normally use Airmail and EMS if applicable to send back the repaired item to you.
  • If a product cannot be repaired: The original product price will be refunded in the form of credit in your Gadget-Shop.co.za account. You can use the credit towards a brand new replacement or a different product.
  • Any new import duty or sales tax for the consignee for the returned repaired products sent from China is their responsibility as per the usual policies.
