Photocentric Shipping Policy
Photocentric ships to most countries around the world. If we have a distributor in your country, we provide a link to their shop on our site which will allow you to order directly from them, in your own currency and with local delivery charges.
Prices on our website do not include tax or shipping. Shipping will be added on checkout. 20% VAT will be added for European customers. Customers from other countries are responsible for any duties payable on imported goods. We cannot advise on these. Note that we cannot be held responsible if your government holds goods in customs for long periods.
When you have placed your order, you will receive a confirmation email. Please contact us if you do not receive this. Tracking information will be sent once shipment is sent.
Photocentric Returns Policy
You have the right to cancel your order and return your goods up to 14 days after receipt of the order for a refund. To be eligible for a return, your item must follow the return criteria below:
Unused and in the same condition that you received it
All accessories must be returned and in full working order
Returned in the original packaging
If you item was not purchased directly from us, we need to have proof of purchase so we can confirm which of our distributors you purchased this from.
Photocentric may decline your refund or exchange in some situations, these include:
Products that have been damaged or defaced
Products with missing labels
Products that have been lost.
To begin the process for a refund you must notify us of your intention to return goods by emailing email@example.com and requesting a Goods Return Number (GRN). Before a GRN can be issued we will need to confirm the return criteria mentioned above. Once the return criteria have been confirmed we will issue a GRN, if the return criteria have not been confirmed then a return will be declined. Once a GRN has been provided we need your goods to be returned to us within 14 days otherwise the GRN will no longer be valid. The cost of shipping the goods back to us plus any insurance is paid by you, unless the goods are faulty – you are responsible for the goods until they reach us, so we do advise that you use a service with insurance and a tracking system. We will also email you details of how to pack the printer to avoid damage in shipping. If the goods have a “shockwatch” shipment protection monitor then proof of receipt undamaged and in a sound condition may be needed. Goods cannot be accepted back without a GRN. A restocking fee may be charged for non-defective items. (*)
Upon receipt of your items they will be processed and inspected by our technical team. Within 7-10 days Photocentric will endeavor to provide a conclusion as to whether your request for a refund has been approved.
(*) For the return of non-defective items, Photocentric charges a minimum 20% restocking fee. Once the 3D printer has been inspected by Photocentric’s technicians and a return has been accepted, this fee will be deducted from your refund. Depending on the condition of the printer and accessories being returned, additional charges may be levied.
If applicable, refunds will be made within 14 days of receipt of the goods back to Photocentric.
