As far as we know Goldfinch Acoustics is the first dealership in India providing such return policy to its consumers. We hope you really appreciate this and the fact that we don’t lock you up with the store credit, yes you get your money back (albeit lesser). We believe that its not difficult for an audiophile like you to understand that we are already taking a risk for you and once you open the box and return it we will not be able to sell it at full price. We know you like to know what if you did not open the box and return it in sealed condition ? Sorry but we will still deduct 20% for all the inconvenience we go through and operational expenses associated with the transaction.
Replacement in this context means you receive your order and find the unit to be not functioning. We want to be nice to you so in a situation where the product goes bad much too early, instead of breaking your heart with warranty claim we are going an extra step to provide you a replacement, however this is only for a fixed period of 10 days.
Below are the points to note for this scenario:
– If you receive the product and find it to be not functioning properly you need to inform us about the issue within 24 hours of receiving the product and return it with in 3 days for a replacement
– If your unit malfunctions with-in 10 days of receiving the order we will provide a replacement. Please note that it will be replaced with the exact same model and colour, you cannot request us for a different product or model as replacement.
– If we do not have ready stock available for replacement you will have to bear with us until the new stock arrives, this might take few weeks time, but it is our responsibility to keep you posted on the progress
– If an accessary is not working properly we will only replace the accessary, please do NOT ask us to replace the entire product.- After 10 days if you face any issue with the product, we will take responsibility to properly service your unit and safely return it to you in working condition.
– whether we charge you for the repair or not will be based not he warranty rules of the manufacturer.- please note that any physical damage or damage due to any user error or negligence will NOT be covered under this exchange policy. So please stay away from trying out your luck with the so called audiophile fuses 🙂
