Returns are defined as an item that you possibly purchased and made an error or an item you decided you no longer want. We all make mistakes at times when placing orders! If you find that you have erred and need to send some of your product back to Global Source Distribution, you will have a 1 days grace period from the day you received your order to return eligible products from Global Source Distribution. All returned items are issued back as a credit.
REQUIREMENTS FOR DEFECTIVE RETURN ELIGIBILITY
Global Source Distribution does not accept defective items that are more than 60 days out from the online purchase date. A defective item refers to an item that is defective out of the box due to manufacture negligence. An item is not considered defective if the defect or issue is caused by user error. Defects caused by user error are not covered under the defective return policy and are not eligible for defective return or replacement. Some examples of user errors are:
- Devices that have been dropped, crushed, suffer damage from e-liquid leaking into the unit, exposed to water, and due to user negligence.
- Coils are never eligible for return or replacement UNLESS there is a manufacture recall.
Global Source Distribution offers a 60 day manufacture defective return policy.
