- Ejuice/Eliquid: taste is subjective and subject to device, temperature, steeping methodology, etc.
- Hardware that was sealed by mfg and has been opened, with the exception of DOA products
- Hardware that was not sealed by mfg (and/or used) hardware, such as Drip Tips and replacement glass
- Replaceable Coils
- Rebuildable products (RDAs, RTAs, RBAs, etc.)
- Components included with a product (tank glass, o-rings, etc.)
- Batteries: due to the sensitive nature of this product, batteries are not warrantied for any reason, as manufacturer defect vs. consumer misuse is nearly impossible ascertain
Seattle Vapor Co does not accept returns, refunds or exchanges on e-liquid for any reason. If you have received a bottle of juice in the wrong flavor, nicotine level, or VG/PG ratio, please contact us within 7 days of receiving your item.
Please contact Seattle Vapor Co Customer Service within the following specified timeframes prior to returning any hardware product. Products received without first contacting customer service will be disregarded.
Due to the sensitive nature of the products used in our industry, Seattle Vapor Co will only accept hardware returns for the following reasons:
Exchange……………………….within 90 days from date of purchase
Wrong Item Received…..within 7 days of receiving product
Warranty Returns………………varies by device according to the manufacturer. Please see package insert for details.
Be sure to include the original packing slip when you send it back to us. Please note that customer service may ask for pictures. video, or other documentation on the product before approving the return. Sending pictures or video that capture your issue with your initial contact may expedite your claim.
Exchange – Unopened, unused items may be eligible for exchange in the form of store credit. Eligible products in unopened, unused condition may be returned at any time during the first 90 days. The items must be in new condition. Return shipping cost will be the responsibility of the customer. Items returned in unacceptable condition will be held without refund and returned to the sender at the sender’s expense. The cost of the initial shipping charge incurred by the customer during the original purchase is not eligible for refund or credit at any time.
Wrong Item Received – In the unlikely event that you should receive an item that is not what you ordered, customer service will issue a prepaid USPS return label. This is sent to the email address on your account for you to print out and affix to your return package. Once the item is received and processed, the correct item will be shipped out to you. All wrong items must be returned unopened. If the item is opened, it will not be accepted for return.
Warranty Returns – A device that does not perform as designed and is covered under the manufacturer's limited warranty period may qualify for a warranty return. A customer service agent will thoroughly troubleshoot the device with you in order to confirm the issue through a series of questions and requests for photos/videos. This is not an interrogation but simply a means of determining the problem with your product so that we can expedite a solution for you. Should your item be deemed defective, we will issue a prepaid USPS label to return the product. Once it arrives at our facility, our Warranty personnel will confirm the fault and a replacement item will be shipped to you. If no fault is found, the purchaser may be responsible for return postage. Prepaid USPS return labels can only be issued for U.S. states and territories.
Checklist for Returning Your Item
Before you can return an item for any reason, you must first contact customer service. Items returned without prior notice will be returned at the sender’s expense.
Items for return must be properly packaged to prevent damage while in transit. We recommend using padded envelopes and bubble wrap. Improperly packaged or damaged-in-transit returns may be subject to rejection. In the case that we issue a USPS return label for your product, you must use a Flat Rate Priority bubble mailer or the post office may not honor the postage. These may be available from your local post office and can be ordered and delivered to your home at no cost from www.usps.com.
Please include the packing slip with your return to ensure the fastest processing once your package arrives. Please allow 2-5 business days after arrival at our facility for your return to be processed or longer if packing slip is not included.
All original product parts, packing material, and instructions must be included with the product. Missing items may subject the return to rejection.
Unless an exception has been approved at the time you receive your return label, your return package must be postmarked within 14 days of receiving your prepaid USPS return label.
Seattle Vapor Co will only replace defective items with working items of the exact same model, of same or similar color based on available inventory. In the event that the item you are returning is out of stock and a suitable replacement is not available, a full refund for the amount of the item alone will be issued in the form of store credit.
In the case that your hardware is not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty policy and we believe it may be helpful, we may offer to troubleshoot your device in-house. Postage would be at the buyer’s expense and no guarantees are made on the result of these efforts. Return postage of your equipment is at our discretion.
Packages/Items Damaged in Transit
Should your package be damaged by the shipping carrier in transit to you, do not open it. Instead, please reject the delivery immediately by telling the carrier in person or by returning it to the Post Office immediately, and then contact us. This will clear you of any responsibility, however, this can only be done with unopened packages. If you have already opened it, please contact Seattle Vapor Co customer service within 24 hours of receiving your package. Please include detailed pictures of the damage to the package. At that time, a customer service representative will determine what action should be taken.
