    Some products have manufacturer warranties, where the supplier or manufacturer manages defective returns directly. In such cases, please contact the supplier or manufacturer directly.

Charges and Refunds

If a defective product is returned without all of the accessories and parts sold with it, we may refuse the return, replace only the returned item, or estimate the value of the missing parts for a refund. If you return a product that doesn't comply with this policy, you may have to reimburse us for the cost of collecting and returning the product. Refunds will be made to the original payment method.
