Restocking Fees and Return Shipping Labels
Returns are subject to restocking fees and return shipping fees. For products that are eligible for return for replacement, the return shipping labels are free for returns for replacement of the same item within the applicable return policy period.ChinaGads does NOT charge for restocking fees or return shipping labels for returns of defective products or unopened items that are returned in the original condition as shipped or if you received the wrong product, the product did not match what was shown on the Site or we made some other shipping error, provided the item is returned within its return policy period. In the event a product is returned that is not defective or an incorrect product or where the product does match what was shown on the Site, the product will either be returned to the customer or the return shipping cost initially covered by ChinaGads will instead be deducted from the refund amount along with any necessary restocking fee that may apply.

Product-Specific Return Information
Bundles are offered to ChinaGads shoppers as a way to purchase multiple items together at a discounted price. If you wish to return a Bundle for a refund, you must request a return within the applicable ChinaGads Return Policy period and you must return the ENTIRE BUNDLE. Items sold as part of a Bundle may be returned individually for replacement if you request a replacement within the applicable ChinaGads Return Policy period for that individual item.
Combos and Kits
Combos and Kits include two or more items that must be purchased together in order to receive a discount. Items sold as part of a Combo or Kit may be returned individually for replacement within the applicable ChinaGads Return Policy Period for that individual item.
If an individual Combo or Kit item is returned for a refund, the applicable discount will be voided, and the discounted amount will be deducted from the amount of the refund. If your Combo/Kit discount amount is greater than the individual unit price of the item you wish to return, then the item cannot be returned for a refund by itself; you will need to return all items in the Combo/Kit or return it with other items of value in order to receive a refund. For example, if your Combo/Kit discount was $5, and you return one of the items for a refund, the $5 will be deducted from your refund amount.
Manufacturer Promotional Items and ChinaGads Gifts
Manufacturers may offer free promotional items with their products. To receive a full refund on a purchase that includes promotional items, all items must be returned. The cost of any promotional items not returned will be deducted from the refund total.
ChinaGads may also offer gifts to valued customers for their continued support as well as for special giveaways. These gifts are not part of any purchase value and therefore do not have to be returned.
Prepaid card, gift packaging and Memberships
Purchases for prepaid cards, gift packaging and memberships are not eligible for return.
Special Order Products
Special order products are not eligible for return.
While ChinaGads is more than happy to fill your order for a quantity of ten (10) or more of any given item in our inventory on a single purchase order, please understand that an order of that size, once purchase is completed, is automatically non-refundable. All other specific conditions related to the ordered item still apply, including any and all stipulations relative to any available replacement return policies. Please contact our customer service department with any questions you may have.
Additional Return Information
Refunds will be credited back to your original payment method. If the original payment method is no longer available, ChinaGads will mail you a check to the billing address listed on your account.
For returns for refunds for items purchased as gifts, ChinaGads will issue you a refund in the form of store credit.
For returns for refunds for items purchased through Bitcoin, ChinaGads will issue you a refund in the form of a ChinaGads gift card.
For products that are eligible for return for replacement, the product may only be returned for a replacement of the same item. We do not allow exchanges or returns for replacements for different items. If you would like to receive a different item, you would need to return the original item for a refund, in accordance with the Return Policy and then purchase the item you would like to receive instead of the original item.
If ChinaGads no longer carries an item that is sent in for replacement, or if that item is simply out of stock, ChinaGads will issue you a refund.
Product Return Procedures
To return a product to ChinaGads, you must obtain an RMA number within the applicable return period for the product (described above). ChinaGads will not accept returns without prior authorization and an RMA number. Once issued, RMA numbers are valid for 15 days within which time returned products must be received by ChinaGads. RMA numbers will not be extended or reissued. Customer should prominently display the RMA number(s) on the shipping label as well as the RMA invoice on the box(s) containing the returned product.
Customer is solely responsible for shipping any returned product to ChinaGads. Customer agrees to use only reputable carriers capable of providing proof of delivery and insurance for the entire value of the shipment. Customer agrees to bear all shipping and insurance charges and all risk of loss for the return product during shipment. Customer agrees that all returned products will be 100% complete, in re-sealable condition, and will include the original packaging material, manuals, blank warranty cards, and other accessories provided by the manufacturer. If any component of the returned product is missing, ChinaGads’s Return Procedure will be breached and ChinaGads may in its sole and absolute discretion reject the entire return or choose to impose additional charges against the customer for replacement of the missing component(s). ChinaGads will not refund the original shipping charges to the Customer. In addition, ChinaGads may assess a 15% restocking fee against the Customer’s account or deduct the fee from the refund amount on all returns, subject to the Return Policy and any product-specific policy. ChinaGads reserves the right to adjust the value of any item returned for refund to reflect its current market price, in which case the 15% restocking fee will be applied after this adjustment.
The return must be properly packaged to protect against damage in transit. Please note that any damage caused by mishandling, improper installation or product defacement will result in your return being denied and the product being returned to you.
Please allow 3-5 business days for your return to process after being received. For returns for laptops, notebooks, desktops, or table PCs, please allow 7-10 business days for your return to process after being received. Due to item availability, some repair/replacement returns may be delayed or changed to refund.
ChinaGads does not take title to returned items until the item arrives at the returns address destination. At our discretion, a refund may be issued without requiring a return. In this situation, ChinaGads does not take title to the refunded item.
Original Shipping Charges
Your original shipping fees are non-refundable. Your original shipping charges are paid for the services provided by and to the original carrier, and will not be refunded to if your item is returned.
We do not cross-ship. Returns must be received, inspected and approved before we ship a replacement.
Refused shipments are treated like regular returns and may be charged a non-refundable 15% restocking fee.
Nothing in this Return Policy limits your rights and remedies under any law.
