Defective Goods

Defective or dead on arrival returns must be returned within 7 days from the invoice date, at Reliance Technology's discretion for credit, replacement, exchange or repair.

The warranty period and service for all products varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. Reliance Technology customers may be required to contact the manufacturer's technical support department directly, to acquire authorisation to return any defective or dead on arrival goods. Refunds or exchanges are issued after receipt and inspection of returned goods. Refunds or exchanges do not include original shipping and handling charges.

  • Non-Defective Goods fee for warranty claims on defective goods; if we receive a product that is inspected and found to be non-defective, a non-negotiable fee of $49.50 inc. GST non-defective goods fee shall be chargeable. The Customer will have to pay for the shipping cost before the non-defective item is returned to the Customer.
  • Dead on Arrival (DOA) items are eligible for repairs or replacement only. We do not issue refunds for DOA products. DOA items must be reported within 7 days from the time you receive your goods. Failure to report a DOA item within 7 days will result in you not being able to claim the item as a DOA. This is particularly important for laptops, PDA and mobile phones as the manufacturers have strict guidelines.


A non-defective product ('No Fault Product') is a product returned by the Customer to Reliance Technology in circumstances where the return is not due to the fault of Reliance Technology or any fault with the product. Due to the costs involved with processing returns and cancellations, a minimum of $49.50 inc. GST restocking/cancellation fee is applicable. Reliance Technology reserves the right to issue store credit towards future purchases only.

Reliance Technology reserves the right to refuse the return of any item(s) in its sole discretion. We do not need to provide a reason. Situations where we may refuse a return includes, but are not limited to:

  • the packaging has been opened, damaged or soiled
  • is not returned in its original packaging
  • is incomplete or contain missing parts
  • shows physical damage to the product(s)
  • is no longer offered for sale by Reliance Technology
  • the price of one or all of the ordered products have changed
  • does not include a valid RA number on the shipping label
  • has an expired RA number
  • is received by Reliance Technology beyond 7 days from the RA issued date
  • product information or specification details in our store is not up-to-date with the manufacturers' website. Customers are advised to check directly with its manufacturer for the most up-to-date information.
  • products sold on non-return basis

Reliance Technology will not pay for shipping of non-faulty or non-defective items and the Customer will pay and organise courier pick-up or any other means of return delivery. As such, the Customer is responsible for the cost of returning the item to Reliance Technology and the original shipping fee is non-refundable.

All return requests will need to first contact Reliance Technology Customer Service via email our our website to obtain a Return Authorisation (RA) number within 7 days from the date the product(s) was shipped. Reliance Technology must receive the return product(s) within 7 days from the RA issued date. Returns received by Reliance Technology beyond 7 days from the RA issued date will not be accepted for return.

In the circumstances where a claim for a returned product(s) is rejected by Reliance Technology, the Customer shall be liable for the cost of delivery in returning these products back to the Customer's address. This cost shall be debited from the Customer initial payment before Reliance Technology can proceed to deliver the rejected product(s).

All refund or credit will only be made after the returned product(s) has been received, inspected and accepted by Reliance Technology. This process usually takes 2-3 weeks. Once this is completed, the refund will be credited to the same mode of payment that the Customer has made their purchase - excluding any restocking fee, freight or other costs. Refunds on purchases made with a credit card will only be credited to the same card.

All Customers' RA requests will be confirmed via e-mail. Please do not send any goods to Reliance Technology prior to receiving the RA number. Reliance Technology reserves the right to authorise product returns beyond 7 days from the invoice date. Reliance Technology rarely issues replacements for incompatible parts as it is the responsibility of our customers to make sure that what their purchase is indeed compatible with their requirements.
