Returns and Warranty

This Agreement was last modified on 1 July 2019.

7 Day Dead on Arrival (DOA) Guarantee

If your item arrives damaged or is not working, please follow the warranty process and contact our Support Center for RMA authorization within 7 days of the order being received. After returning the product to the address provided by our support team, we can send you a new item free of charge (we will reimburse you the return shipping cost), or you can choose to receive a full refund.

Enjoy total peace of mind, every single purchase is 100% risk-free each time you shop at Gearify.

Special Notes:

  • Customers must first send a clear photo or video of the damaged or defective product and the shipping packaging before we can consider issuing RMA authorization. Please use good lighting, and a close to medium distance, so we can identify and verify the issue(s). Attachment size must be under 2MB for the Support Center, please send larger attachments to: support@gearify.co.za.
  • After Gearify has received the returned product and confirmed the product is faulty, the return shipping cost will be refunded based on a valid return receipt. For example if the return shipping fee is R 100.00, Gearify will refund the same amount of R 100.00 to the customer. If our technical team determines the item is not DOA, Gearify will not compensate the return shipping fee. Refund requests for a return shipping fee without a valid RMA return receipt slip will not be accepted.
  • Product returns must be via one of Gearify’s approved shipping methods; our Support Center can provide you with further details.

30 Day Unconditional Refund Guarantee for Unopened & Unused Items

If for whatever reason you do not want your item within 30 days of receiving it, you may also contact us for a return and refund. Kindly note that in such cases the return shipping fee is the customers responsibility and is non-refundable. Items MUST be returned in their original packaging, unused and unopened in order to qualify for a product refund.

Note that the returns shipping fee is non-refundable and products must be returned unopened and unused for a refund.

The shipping fee on the initial order is non-refundable and a 25% restocking fee will be subtracted from the product(s) on refund.

45 Day Money Back Guarantee

For most items, in the unlikely situation that your product is faulty, you can send it back for a refund or item exchange within 45 days of receiving it. Return shipping reimbursement is not available for this.

One Year Repair Warranty

Unless otherwise noted on the product page, the default product warranty period is one year starting from the date you receive the goods, during which you are eligible for free repair. Any free repair needs to be confirmed with the manufacturer via Customer Service. Customers must pay the shipping fees for returning the item accordingly, while we will cover the shipping fees to send the repaired item back to the customer. If the buyer has damaged/misused the item(s), it will not be eligible for free repair, however customers can return it at their own cost and pay a fee for the repair. Return shipping fees will be the customers responsibility in such cases.

Warranty Exemptions & Notes

Natural product degradation through wear and tear, along with breakage/damage during use, is solely the customer’s responsibility and is not covered by our warranties.

If the customer has damaged/misused the item(s), the product’s warranty is immediately rendered void. No compensation is available in such cases. However, customers are welcome to contact us to purchase a replacement or spare parts (if applicable). We will charge the original value of the components and a shipping fee to dispatch them.

The customer voids the warranty if they:

  • Flash the firmware of a device or root a device.
  • Open the body in an attempt to fix the device.
  • Modify, remove, customize, or swap parts of the product.
  • Use the device in a way that it is not originally intended for.
  • Continue to use the item once a fault occurs and causes more damage.

Due to the very sensitive nature of electronic components, we do not offer an exchange or warranty.

All returns must first be authorized by Gearify’s Support Team prior to return. Please kindly refer to the following steps in ”How to a request warranty” below. For incomplete warranty requests, Gearify reserves the right to refuse any compensation. If the customer has returned the package without prior authorization (RMA form), sends to the wrong address, returns an incorrect item, or submits an empty package, then again Gearify reserves the right to refuse any compensation.

All returns will be inspected by our technical team upon arrival. If the returned item cannot be repaired, Gearify will offer an alternative solution.

Special Notes:

  • The shipping fee for returning the product back will be paid by the customer and is non-refundable except for in 7 days DOA situations.
  • During the return shipping, the customer is responsible for any and all customs charges, duties or tariffs during the items return to our warehouse. In these cases, we will deduct the customs fees from your authorized refund amount.
  • We will by default resend the item to the customer via Flat Rate Shipping. If the customer wants to utilize a faster shipping method, the relevant shipping fee is applicable.
