Product returns - Return Policy:
COOLING OFF PERIOD
In accordance with Section 44 of the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act 25 of 2002 (“ECT Act”) you are entitled to cancel your purchase within seven (7) calendar days after date of receipt of the good(s) and obtain a full refund (excluding the courier fees) within 30 calendar days thereafter.
There are some exceptions to the “cooling off” period (Section 42.2 of the ECT Act). These exceptions include the following products in respect of which NO cooling off period shall apply:
Computer software which have been opened/ seals broken;
Consumables which have been opened/ seals broken;
Products which by reason of their nature cannot be returned (including electronic vouchers) due to the fact that the security seal was tampered with and/or the product has been used.
Non-defective hardware (such as optical drives, motherboards, speakers, etc) must be returned in their original, un-opened packaging to be able to be returned for a refund.
Products which are NOT defective or damaged, but which you want to return for whatever reason, may be returned within seven (7) calendar days of delivery, as explained above in the “Cooling Off Period” section.
Should an opened/un-sealed product be returned, a 20% handling fee will be charged. The product(s) also needs to be in a resalable condition. Products that are returned with missing items (such as manuals, warranty cards, accessories and other materials belong to that item) will not be credited/ refunded.
Software will only be credited if the packaging is unopened/seals unbroken and accompanied by a police affidavit. Consumables (such as toners, inks, CD’s, Blu-ray discs, etc.) can only be returned for credit as long as it is unopened/sealed and unused.
In both COOLING OFF PERIOD and NON-DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS, the products must be returned within seven (7) calendar days. All products must be returned to Rebel Tech in their original packaging. The cost of returning the products will be solely at your expense. Should a product be damaged while in transit to Rebel Tech, we will not be liable for the damage nor will Rebel Tech be able to credit you.
