In order to protect you, our valued customer, and the security of your payment information, this website (www.affordableminisplits.com) utilizes the service of PayPal Payment Gateway and Lightspeed Payment Processors.
PayPal provides a secure way to process your payment, includes purchase protection for you, and also provides an efficient way for us to issue refunds when necessary.
You do not have to have a personal PayPal account to pay for an order through this website. Making a a purchase with us through PayPal via your PayPal Balance, Credit Card Processing, or E-Check does, however, constitute your agreement to abide by PayPal’s Terms and Conditions as well as those of your own Financial Institution.
NOTE THAT ORDERS DO NOT SHIP UNTIL PAYMENT HAS CLEARED.
While most payment transactions process within 1-3 business days and refunds within 3-7 business days, processing timelines are subject to the terms of PayPal and Lightspeed as well as your Financial Institution. We will make every effort to assist our customers in expediting delayed payments and refunds when they occur, but we are not responsible nor liable for delays caused by PayPal and/or your Financial Institution. Payments made through PayPal are instant while payments and transactions made through Lightspeed Payment Processor may result in a twenty-four (24) to forty eight hour delay in processing your order. This is the time it takes to reach our bank and verify that payment has been made.
Please keep in mind that the majority of the products we sell are both very heavy and over-sized. Most carriers (FedEx, UPS), therefore, impose a surcharge. Some products and larger orders may require shipping by freight.
We communicate with our suppliers and shipping carriers continually in an effort to keep delivery costs as low as possible. Once an order ships, we supply you with tracking information so you can anticipate the arrival of your merchandise regardless of the carrier being used for delivery.
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT ALL SALES ARE FINAL.
All of our products ship in new condition and are covered by applicable manufacturers’ warranties as described in each Product Description. Packages are also insured with the shipping carrier to cover any damage incurred in transit. Therefore, we only provide a refund if your order is cancelled before any product has been processed for shipping and left our warehouse. We reserve the right to substitute, at our discretion, any product of the same type and manufacturer if the product you order is Out of Stock.
Other refunds may be processed on a case by case basis. If we, in our determination approve any refunds other than warranty or manufacturers defects or damages, we charge a 20% restocking fee for any returned items. Any approved returns must also be in the unopened and original packaging. We DO NOT issue refunds until items are returned and inspected. Shipping charges are not refundable.
In the event of a warranty issue or manufacturer’s defect, a replacement part or parts will be shipped to you. In the event a compressor or other major component needs to be replaced per warranty, the new compressor or component will be shipped after the defective unit is returned and received. We assume all costs for shipping on replacement parts and warranty returns.
