All returns or exchanges must be made within 30 days of your purchase date. If 30 days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange. Our return policy is broken down into 3 main categories - physical items that are shipped to you, downloadable software, and software licensing.
For physical products to be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging.
For any mis-shipment, where SoftwareTea.com sends you an incorrect item, then there will be no cost to return the product and have a replacement sent to you. For any item where you received the correct item, the shipping expense of the return is your responsibility and there will be a restocking fee of 10% of the purchase price.
Please do not send your purchase back to the manufacturer. Instead, contact us and we will provide return shipping instructions.
There are certain situations where only partial refunds are granted: (if applicable)
Once a downloadable software product is delivered to your email address, it is not returnable. We understand that installing downloadable software can sometimes have difficulties. In the circumstances where you are unable to get your software installed, we have support technicians on staff that will assist you in getting your software installed. Our support technicians will even connect into your computer remotely to install your software for you. Your order will be eligible for a refund only in the rare circumstance where our support technician is unable to install your software for you.
Please be aware that once a product key is added to your Microsoft account it cannot be returned, refunded, or exchanged - even if you haven't downloaded it yet, or made a mistake and ordered a Windows version for a Mac and visa versa. Once you add a product key to your Microsoft account, it is yours forever, and there is no way to unassign it from your account, therefore it cannot be returned, exchanged, or refunded.
Software licenses are not returnable, but they can be exchanged for a different license from the same Manufacturer. Software licensing policies are subject to any other restrictions of each individual software manufacturer.
If the item was marked as a gift when purchased and shipped directly to you, you’ll receive a gift credit for the value of your return. Once the returned item is received, a gift certificate will be mailed to you.
If the item wasn’t marked as a gift when purchased, or the gift giver had the order shipped to themselves to give to you later, we will send a refund to the gift giver and he will find out about your return.
To return your product, you should mail your product to: 394 E H St, Chula Vista Chula Vista, CA 91910, unless otherwise directed to on your return instructions.
You will be responsible for paying for your own shipping costs for returning your item. Shipping costs to you are non-refundable. If you receive a refund, the cost of return shipping will be deducted from your refund.
Depending on where you live, the time it may take for your exchanged product to reach you, may vary.
If you are shipping an item over $75, you should consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We don’t guarantee that we will receive your returned item.
