Terms & Conditions

Small Print All Customers Need To Read

When you sign up for a Takemore account you are indicating that you agree to the terms and conditions we've published in our online Knowledgebase. You are responsible for reading these terms in detail, indexed.

Here are some of the most important parts of our terms and policies that you should be aware of before you place orders:

  • Takemore sends goods to you from China. As such, you (or the consignee) are IMPORTING. In many countries this means you will be liable for import duties and other taxes. It's YOUR responsibility to find out about this, and YOUR responsibility to pay the taxes/charges on receipt of the items. Dropshippers: you must inform your customers about this in advance.
  • We can't deliver to PO boxes, APO addresses, or certain remote areas. We reserve the right to refuse, cancel, and refund any orders where we deem the address to be undeliverable.
  • You need a valid phone number on your account. Dropshippers - you MUST provide your customer's phone number for the courier to use.
  • Under the terms of the warranty, if a product arrives broken or develops a fault during the warranty period, you are responsible for the costs of returning it to China for repair / compensation.
  • Takemore doesn't accept returns of products which are not faulty. If you order the wrong products by mistake, or order products that cannot work in your country (e.g. wrong GSM type for cell phones, DVB-T to unsupported countries, PAL/NTSC to wrong regions) we will not offer return/exchange after the goods are sent out.
  • Due to the inevitable rapid developments within the electronics industry, in some rare cases, customers might come across scenarios (including, but not limited to) like the product packaging or user manuals do not hold the same information as shown on our website. The major reason that leads to this type of situation would be items are manufactured in different batches and therefore subtle differences do occur etc. Please refer to our website’s descriptions as final confirmation if you encounter a circumstance like this.
  • Flashing the firmware on products voids the warranty. Even if the product comes with firmware update features / software, please do not use it. The same goes for opening up the body of a product and breaking the warranty seal.
  • Take note of the *sensor* megapixel rating on digital cameras, not the maximum interpolated rating printed on the product or in the manual by the Chinese manufacturer.
  • We strongly recommend you order samples before proceeding with large wholesale orders. As such we may not offer you detailed quantity price breaks until you have successfully placed sample orders.
  • You cannot collect affiliate commissions on your own orders.
  • If you pay for an order and cancel it, or we are offering compensation for a failed delivery or warranty return, we reserve the right to offer "credit against future orders" instead of a cash refund.
  • All new customers paying by credit card / debit card / Paypal are subject to a risk assessment inspection. This can lead to a delay of your first order while we request ID verification from you. This is common practice for any merchant protecting against fraud and your documents submitted will be strictly protected under our privacy policy and, per our data protection policy, not retained beyond the time of the check.

12 Month Warranty On All Takemore Products

"Do you have a guarantee or warranty?"

Yes - Takemore only chooses to stock the very best quality products from professional China manufacturers. The quality is guaranteed.

All products that arrive in the Takemore warehouse are checked for perfect appearance and correct functionality by our QC engineers.

Our packing team checks again to make sure that the right accessories are included and that the electrical / socket adapters are correct for your country.

(Please note in the case of region-specific items such as PAL / NTSC TV/Video Colour Regions, digital TV, GSM mobile phones etc you are responsible for ordering the correct units and we will send you exactly what you order.)

How does the warranty work?

Due to our stringent sourcing and QC processes, the fault rate on products shipped out by Takemore
is very low. However, sometimes faults develop which couldn't be detected before, and we will allow
you to return the product for testing and a free repair.

The warranty exactly lasts for 365 days from the day you have received the product. In the case of
delivery methods or destinations which lack a confirmed delivery tracking date, we will take the
assumption that the warranty period starts 30 days after we sent out your order.

Warranty And Returns - Detailed Terms and Conditions

Takemore Terms and Conditions - Warranty and Returns
We guarantee all products bought from us with a 12-month warranty against defects in quality.

This article is about the warranty on products you buy from Takemore.

All goods dispatched from Takemore are checked for quality, including checks of the appearance of the goods, the function of the hardware and software, the packaging, and inclusion of applicable accessories and power adapters.

Takemore undertakes to communicate openly, promptly, and carefully with all customers in relation to issues with received goods.

If you are a customer with goods which appear to have a problem, please talk to us before initiating complaints with Paypal or your credit card provider. Usually there is a way for us to resolve your issue quickly and make you satisfied!

What Does Takemore’s Warranty Imply?
As a wholesaler Takemore can only offer problem-solving for faulty products which either shipped in an unsatisfactory condition, or developed internal faults naturally during usage without issues of physical damage or unsupported usage. In other words if the product is broken you can contact us to send it back for a repair.

Warranty Does Not Include:

  • Technical support on product installation and usability
  • Advice about product's configuration or any software issues
  • Recommendations about how to connect products or compatibility
  • Software/OS updating or firmware flashing as it would void Takemore's warranty
  • Product issue diagnostic and troubleshooting advice

Warranty By Default Covers Repair
The Takemore warranty means we will repair your faulty item for free and send it back to you for free. Other compensation is not normally available if the product can be repaired promptly.
If an item is impossible to repair to a good working condition, or would take too long to do so, we will next offer you an equivalent product.

When Does The 12 Month Warranty Start From?
The warranty period begins from the receipt of the goods by the initial consignee. In the case of resellers, this is when the vendor receives the goods from Takemore. The period is exactly 365 days from that time. For example, a product on the 365th day is covered, but a product on the 366th is no longer covered.
In the case of delivery methods or destinations which lack a confirmed delivery tracking date, we will take the assumption that the warranty period starts 30 days after we sent out your order.

Who Pays For What?

  • Cost of shipping a presumably faulty item back to Hong Kong or China: Paid by the customer, cannot be reimbursed.
  • Cost of China internal freight,import duties, and restocking process on the Hong Kong or China sides: waived for faulty products and paid by Takemore in full. In other words our QC engineers will test products you ship back and, if they confirm the products are indeed faulty, we will offer compensation (repair, replacement, credit or refund). However, for products that are tested and turn out to be in good working condition, Takemore will not accept any responsibility and may charge a restocking fee at our own discretion. Functional products will not be reimbursed.
  • Cost of shipping repaired item back to customer from China: paid by Takemore in full. In order to facilitate customs clearance, we will normally use Airmail and EMS if applicable to send back the repaired item to you.
  • If a product cannot be repaired: The original product price will be refunded in the form of credit in your Takemore account under certain circumstances. You can use the credit towards a brand new replacement or a different product.
  • Any new import duty or sales tax for the consignee for the returned repaired products sent from China is their responsibility as per the usual policies.

In What Situations Are Returns/Compensation NOT Approved By Takemore?

Below are instances where a customer will not be eligible for returns and/or compensation:

  • Unapproved returns or returned products not processed through Takemore’s RMA procedure;
  • Products whose warranty period has expired;
  • Received returned products that are damaged because of inadequate return packaging;
  • Products that were originally approved for return through our RMA procedure but have been confirmed by our QC engineers to be not broken and actually well-functioning after testing, shall

  • Physically damaged or broken products caused by misuse or mishandling, subjects to manufacture  technical test result;
  • Returns of your unwanted, unsold yet functional products;

Refunds and Cancellation - Takemore Terms and Conditions

How to cancel unpaid orders?
There is no need to contact Takemore to cancel orders which have not been paid for. These orders will expire automatically after a certain period.
Takemore permits checking out of orders using the online shopping cart as a system for customers to generate proforma invoices for themselves and to keep records of prospective purchases.
Only orders that have actually been paid for are activated and entered into the order checking / processing system.

How and in what conditions can customers cancel paid/processing orders?
In general, Takemore can usually accept requests for cancellation of paid orders up to the working day on which the order enters the status "processing". Customers can request cancellation of orders by phone or email quoting their order number and providing a clear explanation for this request. Any processing order cancellation must be properly justified as it is a standard business practice.

When is it too late to cancel a paid order?
Orders that have been dispatched with a tracking number cannot be cancelled/ reimbursed. If you can see "Order is Sent Out", and "Pending cancelation"  in your account, it is impossible to cancel your order.

In what cases may Takemore charge a restocking fee?
If a customer requests cancellation of an order after the order is in processing (i.e. goods checking, processing and packing) in our warehouse Takemore reserves the right to charge a restocking fee, deducted from the resultant refund or credit. In fact in most cases we will not charge this fee, because we are nice people.

Below are the cases where Takemore may charge a restocking fee: 

  • If an apparently bona fide order has been placed, and has entered processing in our warehouse, Takemore does reserve the right to charge a restocking fee up to 30% of the value of the goods, at our discretion.
  • If a customer cancels several processing orders all at the same time
  • If the order is above 1000USD.
  • If the customer already cancelled several orders within the same month.
  • Additional charges may be deducted from refunds in cases where goods have been shipped overseas and are returned for reasons beyond Takemore's control, and where as a result Takemore incurs return shipping charges and China import duties and taxes, as well as further domestic shipping expenses.

How does Takemore offer refunds to customers for cancelled orders?
The following general conditions apply to refunds made by Takemore:

  • Cancelled orders are reimbursed by crediting your Takemore account by default. 
  • Refunds will be made in the form of credit extended by Takemore against future orders.

Shipping and Delivery: Small Print

Terms and Conditions you should know relating to deliveries:

  • Before you read the small print: Importing is a breeze in most countries! You may have to pay your own country's VAT (i.e. Sales Tax) and sometimes variable Import Duty when the items arrive, but in the vast majority of cases packets / cartons delivered from China by courier arrive safely with no problems at all!
  • Read the item description carefully! We will ship you whatever you order. Although we do assist you by manually checking all orders to screen possible region / compatibility inconsistencies, we do not accept returns of healthy products which were simply mis-ordered by you. If you are in an NTSC video color region, don't order PAL products for your market. Check if your locality has free DVB-T broadcasts before buying DVB-T digital TV receivers. If the driver's seat is on the left, don't order left side passenger sun visor Car DVD Monitors! Duh!
  • Additionally, there are some (cool) types of gadgets including for example (but not limited to) radio signal jammers, high powered lasers, and quasi-medical products, that are not legal (booo!) to import into certain countries. As the buyer / importer it is entirely your responsibility to find out in advance of placing your order whether your ordered items are subject to import restrictions. Takemore will ship you whatever you order, so we do not accept liability in the case of failed delivery of goods, where they have failed to clear your country's local Customs - either in cases where the goods are turned back, or in cases where the goods are seized. In addition Takemore is not responsible for informing you of possible import restriction issues before or after purchase.
  • We will not be responsible for any damage that may be caused on your computer, console, or other hardware / software during / related to installation of any of our products. We not be liable for any damage or personal loss due to incorrect installation of our products.
  • Delivery time: If there is a possible delay due to the warehouse being out of stock, we'll contact you by email to discuss sending out your order in separate shipments, changing products, or other options. Larger orders that exceed our stock may take up to 1 week longer to send out, as we have to order from the factory. In such cases we will contact you about any delay. In certain cases, e.g. the first time you try to drop-ship to a different address than your own, we have to complete a verification check with you before processing your order, which can add 1-3 days to the processing time.
  • If you are at all unsure about importing goods from China, start with Takemore. Your payment is through a safe channel, your delivery is guaranteed, the products are quality assured, and you can begin by ordering only 1 piece as a sample!
