In the event of a complete cancellation, you will receive a full refund of your order. International customers need to be aware this refund will be to the full value in GBP (£). We cannot accommodate for any fluctuations in currency conversions from the date of purchase to the time of cancellation.

Part cancellations will receive a refund for the cost of the goods which are no longer being delivered. You may cancel unshipped items from orders which have already had some items dispatched.

INCORRECT GOODS RECEIVED

In the rare situation that you have received the wrong goods please contact us as soon as possible – we are often able to dispatch the correct item(s) the same day, subject to stock availability.

You will be asked to return the incorrect goods to us and reasonable return shipping costs will be refunded on request.

In the case of low-cost items which have been incorrectly shipped to UK customers, we will include an SAE with the correct product. For higher value goods which have been incorrectly shipped to a UK customer, we will arrange a free courier collection on a mutually acceptable date.

UNWANTED GOODS – 14 DAYS POLICY

We operate a 14-day unwanted goods policy. This is in line with the UK’s Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 and Consumer Rights Act 2015.

Please note this 14 day cancellation option is only available for UK and European customers, who reside within in a country defined as being either an EU or EEA member state.

If you find that a product is not right for you, or change your mind before receiving the goods, then a return can be requested within this period. Simply contact us within 14 calendar days of the delivery date of the goods.

A return authorization form will then be issued and the goods need to be returned within the following 14 days. It is however advised that you return them to us as soon as possible for us to process any claims.

We do ask that the goods are returned to us in perfect “as new” condition. In the case of feature phones, smartphones, tablets and other computing products, they should be returned with all accessories, documentation, and packaging including the box inners. The goods will be inspected upon receipt. Should the returned item(s) be in “as new” condition, their full value will be refunded.

Under no circumstances should a phone be returned under the 14-day policy with any screen lock, account lock or personal data installed. This will result in the handset being immediately returned to you. If you intend to return an Android device and have performed a factory reset, please ensure Device Protection Features have not been activated (this requires the previous account ID & Password for continued use of the handset). If you intend to return an Apple iOS device, please ensure it has been factory reset and correctly removed from any associated iCloud or other remote-management accounts.

In the event of cosmetic damage to the product (blemishes, scratches, dents, cracks etc.), or excessive damage to packaging or missing packaging that would affect the resale value of the item, SwipeGadgets reserve the right to levy a handling charge of up to 30% of the item’s retail value at the time of sale.

Should an item be damaged beyond a condition which could be considered acceptable for resale, SwipeGadgets reserves the right to refuse the refund and return the goods back to the customer.

Please Note: this policy is not intended for customers to be able to “trial” a purchase. It is only intended to give a customer the ability to inspect a product as they would have the ability to do in a physical store. If we consider that any customer may be abusing this system (such as making repeated orders and sending many of them back to aid a buying decision) we reserve the right to refuse further 14-day return requests from said individual and cancel/refuse outstanding orders.

FAULTY GOODS

Products returned as faulty are dealt with depending on the time of which they are returned.

UK/EU customers can reject faulty goods and request a refund/replacement within 14 days from the date of delivery. For customers outside of the European Union, goods need to be returned to us within 14 days from the date of dispatch to qualify for the same resolution.

Where a customer rejects goods and claims a refund, this will be completed within 14 days of the agreement by us. In most cases, however, the refund will be provided within a significantly shorter amount of time.

If you are returning a phone to us within the initial 14 days we would ask that it is returned with all accessories, documentation and packaging including the box inners. Failure to return phones in an acceptable condition may cause delays in the processing of your goods.

WARRANTY REPAIRS

Whilst you are welcome to return faulty products to SwipeGadgets within their relevant warranty period, we always suggest contacting the manufacturer first. This may result in faster service and also the provision of free shipping materials being sent to you.

Faulty products which are returned to SwipeGadgets more than 14 days from the delivery date for UK/EU customers or 14 days after the date of dispatch for the rest of the world will automatically be forwarded onto the manufacturer’s service centre for repair.

EU customers may find that the manufacturer’s warranty is applied locally. If so then SwipeGadgets recommends contacting the manufacturer locally for free servicing. If available this may significantly reduce time and shipping/return costs to/from the UK. In the event the warranty is not applicable for any reason, we welcome EU returns for servicing in the UK.

Customers in the rest of the world may not be able to receive warranty support from the manufacturer, although we always recommend checking first. Whilst we welcome international returns for warranty service in the UK, depending on the associated shipping costs to/from the UK, you may find it cheaper to arrange an out-of-warranty repair with the manufacturer locally.

We request that phones returned for repair include at least the battery and back cover so that the phone can be suitably tested. If a fault might be related to any accessory, for example, a charging problem, it is recommended that the relevant item is also returned. Any additional accessories returned will be securely held whilst the manufacturer is repairing the unit.

NON-WARRANTY REPAIR

Products which are returned to us as non-warranty repairs (or items which have been found to be physically damaged) will be forwarded to the relevant manufacturer’s service centre for assessment.

With non-warranty repairs, the customer is liable for all shipping and repair costs, regardless of geographic location.

Repair quotations which are accepted by a customer need to be paid in full before authorization can be provided to proceed with the repair. SwipeGadgets may add the cost of return shipping to any official repair quotation, in order for you to pay the full balance to us.

Most manufacturers charge for the assessment of phones. In the event that a repair quotation is rejected the assessment charge will need to be paid by the customer, before the manufacturer’s service centre will release the phone. SwipeGadgets may add the cost of return shipping to any official assessment charge, in order for you to pay the full balance to us.
