What Does SourcingBay's Warranty Imply?
As a wholesaler SourcingBay can only offer compensation for faulty products. In other words if the product is broken you can contact us to send it back for a repair.
Warranty Does Not Include:
The warranty does not include any kind of:
- Technical support on product usability
- Advice about product's configuration
- Recommendations about how to connect products or compatibility
- Software or firmware update as it would void SourcingBay's warranty
- Product issue diagnostic and troubleshooting advice
Warranty By Default Covers Repair
The SourcingBay warranty means we will repair your faulty item for free and send it back to you for free. Other compensation is not normally available. If an item is impossible to repair to a good working condition we will credit you the product cost instead. Shipping fees are not refundable as they not are charged by SourcingBay.
When Does The 12 Month Warranty Start From?
The warranty period begins from the receipt of the goods by the initial consignee. In the case of resellers, this is when the vendor receives the goods from SourcingBay. The period is exactly 365 days from that time. For example, a product on the 365th day is covered, but a product on the 366th is no longer covered.
Who Pays For What?Cost of shipping a presumably faulty item back to Hong Kong or China: Paid by the customer, cannot be reimbursed.
Cost of import duties, restocking fees and other compensation on the Hong Kong or China sides: Import duties and restocking fees on the Hong Kong and China side will be waived for faulty products and paid by SourcingBay in full. In other words our QC engineers will test products you ship back and, if they confirm the products are indeed faulty, we will offer compensation (repair, credit or refund). However, for products that are tested and turn out to be in good working condition, SourcingBay will not accept any responsibility and may charge a restocking value at our own discretion. Functional products will not be reimbursed.
Cost of shipping repaired item back to customer from China: paid by SourcingBay 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 SourcingBay 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.
