Cancellations and Returns


What is Purchasing Power's Return Policy?

Our return policy is:

Most items in new, unused condition (i.e., manufacturer seal is not broken) can be returned within thirty (30) days of delivery for a full credit or refund, excluding shipping fees.

Freight items are typically non-returnable. Always thoroughly inspect the product upon arrival. Open all boxes, remove the packaging and take extra care to inspect the product. If the unit is damaged or if the packaging is significantly damaged, please refuse shipment, notate the damage on the packing slip or Bill of Lading and contact us immediately so that we may arrange a replacement item for you.

Returned items must be received by us within 30-days to avoid being recharged the full price (including shipping) of the unreturned item.

Why can't I return an item after I open it?

Purchasing Power does not sell used, refurbished or “open box” items. If you receive a damaged or defective item, please contact us immediately for assistance with a replacement.

There are times when you may want to return an item for reasons other than damages or defects. In those instances, for the item to be eligible for a refund (minus shipping costs), it needs to be unopened with the manufacturer seal still intact.

How do I make sure I don’t break the manufacturer’s seal?

Before purchasing, review the product description and specifications thoroughly for key information (measurements, color, items included, etc.).

Review the OUTSIDE of the box to make sure it matches what you ordered. There may also be a detailed packing slip included with your shipment that you can review before opening.

If it is an item commonly available in a physical retail store, you might want to try it out before making a purchase with us.

How do I know if I broke the manufacturer’s seal?

If you have had direct contact with the actual product, you have broken the manufacturer’s seal, which makes the item non-returnable. Please see the examples, below.
