Refurbished Product Orders and Refunds

ZOTAC USA allows for the purchase of refurbished products on the online store. These refurbished products have been thoroughly tested for resell by the internal ZOTAC USA RMA Team. Refurbished products sold by ZOTAC USA may or may not include the original packaging material, retail box, and/or accessories, and may have small scratches, small dents, or noticeable use. The refurbished products are Factory Recertified to meet the performance and reliability of a new product of the same model. All refurbished products sold are returnable for a refund within 30 days, but must include all accessories that were shipped with the refurbished product. If any accessories are missing then the refund may be voided. All non-defective returned items are subject to a 15% restocking fee. Shipping will not be refunded.

In addition, ZOTAC USA provides a 90 day limited warranty for refurbished product orders. If the customer’s refurbished product order arrives to the delivery location and is not fully functional, then it is considered dead-on-arrival (DOA) or defective and can be replaced or applicable for a refund if no replacement is available. The customer must contact ZOTAC USA Customer Service within the 90 day limited warranty period.

To return and refund a refurbished product order, follow the RMA procedure located here:

The customer is responsible for properly packaging and shipping out the DOA or defective order for return to ZOTAC USA, using the carrier of their choice. It is up to the customer if they wish to place insurance on the shipment via their selected carrier. ZOTAC USA is not responsible for any damage that may occur during the return shipping process. All returns must include the original packaging material, retail box, and accessories. Return shipments that do not include the original packaging material, retail box, and accessories may be denied a refund. If the customer’s refurbished product order did not originally come with the original packaging material, retail box, and accessories then the refund process will continue as usual.

Refunds for refurbished product orders must be within the allotted 30 day return period and will only be issued if the product is considered DOA, defective, or if no inventory is available to replace the customer’s non-functioning refurbished product. If there is no available inventory to replace the customer’s defective or DOA refurbished product, then a full refund will be issued. Refunds do not include the initial shipping charge (the shipping charges that applied when the order was first placed). A 15% restocking fee will be applied to opened refurbished product order returns.

Once the refurbished product order’s 30 day return period expires, returns and refunds will no longer be accepted by ZOTAC USA.
