iBOOD return policy
There are several reasons to cancel or return (a part of) your order. For each return reason there’s a separate procedure. Therefore please read the return policy carefully to avoid any problems with your warranty claim.
Beware! In case you are planning to return a product, it’s important to return the product in the original packaging, with the invoice enclosed. And Please make sure you send it prepaid and with a decent wrapping.
For any return procedure you will need both the original packaging and the invoice. In case you have lost the original invoice, you can download a copy from ‘My orders’ at the ‘My iBOOD’ section on iBOOD.com.

In case of a DOA, or a defect within the first 6 months after delivery, iBOOD will refund the return shipping costs.
