If a technician is unable to resolve the problem over the phone or email, and deems the product defective or requiring testing, the customer will be given an RMA reference number. The customer must ship the product back to us with a copy of the invoice and the RMA reference number within 7 days upon being issued this number. Printers Choice recommends that appropriate messures are taken to safeguard the product from damage during shipping, as Printers Choice does not warrant a physically damaged product.

Printers Choice does not accept packages sent collect or COD. The customer must pay for shipping and provide the necessary information for reimbursement.

If the product is determined to be defective and is covered by our in-store direct exchange policy, the customer will be informed and a replacement will be shipped out as soon as possible. The direct exchange period for online purchases is 30 days from when the order was originally shipped out to the customer.

After the first 30 days, the customer will have to wait until we get a replacement or repaired item back from the manufacturer. This may take an estimated 2-6 weeks depending on the product. Printers Choice will cover the shipping charge for sending the product back to the customer for up to 90 days for OEM products and 30 days for retail products, from when the original purchase was shipped. Please note that some products may have a less than 90 day warranty. It is recommended that customers deal directly with the manufacturer for all retail products for faster turn around times. Printers Choice can help fasciliate warranty service between the customer and manufacturer for retail items, but will not cover any expenses incurred for warranty service after the first 30 days of purchase. For OEM products that have a one year warranty, Printers Choice will not cover shipping charges after the first 90 days.

If the product is not defective, the customer will have to pay for shipping of the product back to the customer.

Printers Choice is limited to the service level offered by the manufacturer or supplier, please read your product warranty information carefully before contacting us.
