Damaged or Faulty Products

All products that are sold by Party Supplies Online are checked as part of our process in completing your order. On rare occasions items do become "damaged" as part of transporting the goods to you. A refund or replacement for a faulty product is conditional on the following;

  1. You must notify Party Supplies Online of a Faulty or Damaged product within 30 days of purchase.
  2. Where a product is damaged, the item must not appear to have been used for it to be deemed as a "damaged product". For the avoidance of doubt, it is recommended that you notify us prior to the "Date Required by" date and leave the product in its original packaging unopened.
  3. You must keep evidence of the faulty product and the carton in which it was shipped until we advise on your requested refund or exchange. We will require a photo or video of the product and package for insurance purposes to prove the issue. If the photo or video is insufficient we may request additional photo's or video's. If you dispose of the item before we approve (or reject) the claim, we reserve the right to reject your claim.
  4. We will not provide a refund or replace a product that has been misused, mishandled or incorrectly installed or serviced. It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that all instructions and advice or warnings given by the manufacturer, supplier, or us are followed.
  5. The limit of the compensation for a faulty product will be the replacement or refund of that faulty product once it has been returned to us.
  6. We reserve the right to inspect and test a product to determine if it is in our opinion faulty or damaged. It is at our discretion that we determine if an item is damaged or faulty.
  7. The delivery time for a replacement product starts from when we confirm that we will replace your product and will then follow normal shipping times, the same as if the product was being dispatched as a normal order. See shipping times for details however they may vary if we need to source the product for you in which case we will notify you of delays.
  8. In the rare event that a product is Faulty or Damaged, please send a video of the Faulty product or image of the Damaged product to us within 7 days of originally notifying us of the issue. We may request that the product be sent back to us. If we require the product to be sent back to us and we find that the product is faulty we will provide a full refund (or we can send a replacement if you prefer) of the product and the shipping incurred for sending the product back to us with regular post. If the product is found to be in good working order, a refund will not be provided and you would be required to pay the shipping to have the product sent back to you.
  9. It is your responsibility to ensure that defective goods are suitably packaged for return shipping and include all original packaging, cables, manuals, accessories and other items that came with it. If we deem at our discretion that all the required packaging, cables, manuals, accessories and other items are not with your returned item, we may reject the return claim.
