What is your Return and Exchange Policy?

All of our cartridges come with a full one-year warranty. In the event that you receive any defective product, we will exchange that product for a brand-new cartridge within one year (365 days) of your original date of purchase.

Should you request a refund in lieu of an exchange, you can send that product back to us for a refund within one year (365 days) of the original date of purchase. We do require that you contact us before returning any product so that we can issue a Return Merchandise Authorization Number.


Why do I need a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA) to return my order?

We require a Return Merchandise Authorization number to be included with all return packages. This number helps us properly identify return packages and eliminates unnecessary delays in issuing a refund back to you.

To obtain your RMA contact our customer support: 1-866-658-8125

Please note: Packages received without a Return Merchandise Authorization Number will not be processed for a refund.

When issuing an RMA number, our customer service team will document any attempted troubleshooting, the reason for the return, and the number of items you are sending back to us. Once the return package is received at our facility, we will reference the RMA and issue the refund accordingly. * †


When should I expect to see my refund?

Refunds are typically issued within 3-5 days of receiving the returned package from the customer. * †

Please note: It may take an additional 3 business days for your bank to process the refund once it has been issued on our end.
