Return Policy for the US
At Shopify, we do everything we can to ensure you are happy with your purchase, but we know that sometimes a product is just not right. We’ve made our return policy as easy as possible.
Please see the full POS Equipment Agreement below.
Please note: If you did not receive the items that you ordered or are missing items that were supposed to come with your hardware, please reach out to the Shopify support team at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the contact page here. We can only process these requests within 30 days after delivery.
Within 30 Days - You must request a return within 30 days of the product being shipped to you. Returns must be shipped back to our warehouse within 7 days of receiving your return label.
Includes original packaging and product in new condition - Any returned product(s) must be returned in all of their original packaging, and in like-new condition. Shopify may reject the returned product if there is damage to the product and/or product packaging.
If a product is deemed unfit for return, Shopify will notify the customer that the return has been rejected and no refund will be issued to the customer. The customer can choose one of the following options:
- The product will be shipped back to the customer at a shipping cost of $30 ; or
- The product will be recycled.
Free Return Shipping - If you received free shipping for the original purchase of your product, you are eligible for free return shipping using a carrier that we’ve selected. Please follow the instructions below. We are not responsible for risk of loss or damage for returning a product during shipment. We only offer free return shipping in Canada and the Continental US. International shipments must purchase return postage to process a return.
Due to the nature of physical gift cards we are unable to offer any returns/refunds on gift card orders once they have been printed. If a card order has moved to the proofing stage but not printed, a $15 charge will apply, which will be taken from the refund provided.
As long as your return adheres to the requirements described above, follow these steps to return your product(s):
- Please fill out the return form at https://hardware.shopify.com/returns.
- After reviewing your return form, we will email you a return label. Print out the return label and securely attach it to a suitable shipping carton.
- Drop the package off at the shipping carrier’s closest location.
We will receive and review the products you have returned. If the returned products have met all of our return policy requirements, we will process the refund and send you a confirmation email. We are only able to credit the original credit card used to make the purchase. Please allow up to 8 business days for this process.
POS Equipment Agreement
These terms apply to the purchase of Shopify POS hardware products. By placing an order for POS hardware, you accept and agree to the terms of this agreement.
Every effort is made to maintain sufficient stock of all the products we offer. Potential inventory shortages at our distributor may impact our ability to fulfill an order. We reserve the right to cancel an order if we are, for any reason, unable to fulfill the order requirements. If we are unable to fulfill an order, we will notify you by email.
Inventory shortages or other fulfillment issues may cause delays. Your order is shipped using a carrier that we have selected. We cover the shipping fee as long as the shipping address is located in the Continental US. Once you place your order on our online store, we will provide you with an estimated delivery time. Please allow 1-2 business days for processing + delivery. Every effort is made to facilitate the delivery of your order on time. After your order is processed and fulfilled, we will send you an email containing the order tracking number. Once your order is fulfilled and placed in the hands of our selected shipping carrier, we cannot guarantee any delivery date indicated by the carrier.
Returns and Refunds
At Shopify, we do everything we can to ensure you are happy with your purchase, but we know that sometimes a product is just not right. You may return your hardware within 30 days of it being shipped to you, as long as it is in new condition and has the original packaging.
Please note that Chip & Swipe Readers and physical gift cards are non-returnable and non-refundable.
No returns are accepted over 30 days. We only accept returns of the hardware we sell directly to you. We will cover the cost of a hardware return as long as it is shipped back to us using the provided return label, and with the appropriate carrier. Priority shipping charges selected at checkout are non-refundable. If we suspect you’re abusing the return policy (for example by returning products on multiple occasions or on a seasonal basis), we reserve the right to refuse your return.
End-users and resellers
Our hardware packages are designed with love and care specifically for Shopify merchants. We reserve the right to refuse selling and shipping any product to you if we have reason to believe you are not a Shopify customer. Likewise, customer support is only available to the original hardware purchaser. We do not currently sell to or work with resellers.
We sell a combination of our own and third party hardware to create a modern point-of-sale.
