RETURN POLICY FOR DEFECTIVE GOODS:
3.2 If the goods are found to be factory defective within 7 days after the arrival to the customer's address, customers are entitled to either a full refund or replacement. Please note, PDA Plaza technicians will inspect the phone to verify the issue, and if needed, the item will be shipped to the manufacturer for an official statement that it is indeed a factory defect. Only then the refund/replacement will take place.
It is the customer's responsibility to cover all the costs for the shipment inbound to PDA Plaza.
RETURN POLICY FOR NON-DEFECTIVE GOODS:
If you want to return the goods which are NON-defective within the 7 days after the arrival to your address, the original factory box of the item must not be opened and remain sealed as originally arrived. In such a case, you must return the goods to receive a full refund as per the RMA.
If the package/box of the item is opened, there will be a minimum 25% restocking fee even if the item itself is still sealed and wasn't used. Delivery costs will not be refunded.
RETURN POLICY FOR USED/DAMAGED GOODS:
If the goods were used, missing any packaging or damaged packaging, we reserve the right to refuse a refund or apply a restocking fee of up to 25%. The exact amount of the fee will depend on the condition of the returned goods that will be thoroughly inspected by our technicians. Delivery costs will not be refunded.
3.3 If the goods are found to be faulty after 7 days but within 1 month of arrival to the customer's address, the customer can send the faulty goods to our office, together with relevant invoice and PDAPlaza can arrange for repair services. Post fault investigation and within the specified warranty period, PDAPlaza repair service will be actioned at our discretion (please see Exclusions below) within 30 working days, at no cost to the customer. If PDAPlaza cannot repair the item within this period we will supply the customer with a suitable B-Stock item. If we do not have suitable B-Stock to replace we will source an equal alternative upon agreement with the customer or offer credit for the next purchase. For repair services covered by the warranty, the cost of shipping the goods back to the customer will be borne by PDAPlaza. Please contact our Customer Service to request an RMA and follow the instructions to authorize the return of goods. Please refer to the Returns section below for details.
3.4 If the goods are found to be faulty after 1 month of arrival to the customer's address, PDAPlaza does not hold any responsibility for the costumer's goods or services. The responsibility of obtaining a repair/replacement lies in the customer. The customer must contact the manufacturer of the goods to arrange a repair/replacement if possible. It is recommended for the customer to verify if the goods still hold manufacturer warranty. The customer has to bear all of the repair fees and other additional expenses.

3.8 Returns and Repairs:
Please contact our Customer Service to request an RMA.
Products should be returned in their original packaging with all documentation, accessories, battery, stylus, cable, headset, etc. enclosed in the initial shipment.
When you return your device, you will need to make sure that it is unlocked and free of security software that might prevent us from being able to access it. If the device is locked or disabled when you return it, we may have to charge you the full cost of the device and/or not process a repair/refund (if applicable).
Note: If you are not able to unlock or deactivate your device, please let us know before returning.
Please be sure that your device is restored to its factory settings without any personal data remaining before return. We will not be responsible for any use or disclosure of any data that is on the returned device during the assessment and repair process.
To cancel an order, please email firstname.lastname@example.org OR email@example.com. Be sure to include your order number and a message that you want to cancel the order.
If your order has not been yet shipped, we can start the cancellation process of the order.
Because of this, all orders where the funds were charged and used for the completion of the order have a refund process of 10-15 business days from the moment the buyer asks for the refund.
As stated above, this time frame is due to the slow performances of the banks and financial services our company utilizes. So be sure to notify us as soon as possible.
If your order has already shipped and cannot be canceled, please refer to the following section on how to return your order.
Once we receive and inspect your item(s), we will credit your account. Please allow 10-15 days for a credit to appear on your account. In most cases, we will issue your refund in the same way you made the original purchase. Please note: we can only refund the original purchase price. Shipping and handling fees are nonrefundable.
All orders completed through PayBright may hold a 3% fee during refunds.
