Return Policy

Before you purchase items from GeekBuying, we kindly advise you to read the following regulations carefully.
GeekBuying provides all of the following help to our respected customers:

About The Tax
Please note that customers are responsible for the tax if any. For airmail or registered airmail free shipping method, our warehouse people will declare low value(20 USD or less) and the name of " gift" for you without informing you as our years' of custom experience declaration telling us that declare like that can help customers avoid or lower down the tax. But here we want to state that we are not 100% sure it can totally avoid tax which might be charged by your local custom referring to your country custom policy. For more information, you can call the custom office to consult.

Therefore, if you have any special requirement about the declaration for your order, please let us know immediately after placing the order.

If fast shipping method (DHL or EMS) has been chosen, customers should note that you are responsible for paying tax if any. More custom clearance details please contact your local custom agency.

If you have any proper declaration advice, please do inform us immediately after placing the order.

If you refuse to sign the package or clear the custom just because of the tax affairs, there will be huge returning shipping fee and tax generated, in this case, GeekBuying service people will inform you to pay for all the bills.

Items Defective On Arrival
Customer should inform our service people in 2 days after the package arrival. If the outer packing is broken or out of shape, please do remember to refuse signing the package and immediately file a case in the courier company, and then send us an email with detailed pictures showing the defective items, package situations and the case number. Only in that way the compensations can be made by the shipping courier, and we will resend or give you full refund of the defective item. This is extremely important for you and GeekBuying and thank you for your cooperation.

If the outer packing is perfect and in a good shape, please also send images about package and defective items to us, normally in this case we can judge that the defect may be caused by the inner packing such as lacking bubble protection. With confirmation, our service people will inform the warehouse department staff to make some improvements in packing aspect.


Items Missing on Arrival
Please immediately contact the shipping courier and file a case there. Then tell us the case number and send us some pictures showing all items you get on arrival, all the labels on the packing, and also the package situations. Most importantly, if you have the taxation fee receipt, don't hesitate to take a picture for us as the weight can tell something about the missing. We will resend you the missing items after we confirm it.
