What are the delivery timelines?

Orders placed before 3 PM are processed and dispatched to the courier on the same day.
Delivery within Europe typically takes 24 hours, while outside Europe it takes 2-3 business days.

However, we cannot be held responsible for any delays due to unforeseen circumstances such as inclement weather, courier technical issues, public holidays, or other uncontrollable factors.

I’ve received a faulty product, what can I do?

First of all, kindly take the time to thoroughly inspect the product before initiating a refund/exchange request to confirm that the product is actually defective.
For instance, in the case of an LCD screen, it’s beneficial to test it with another motherboard to ensure proper installation.

If the product is found to be truly defective, you can easily initiate a refund/exchange request from your account area by selecting the order related to the defective product and submitting the request.

The customer will always be responsible for the return shipping cost, unless there are special agreements in place between Phoneparts and the customer.

What are the warranties?

All spare parts come with a 3-month warranty that begins on the date of receipt. However, if a well-known defect arises after three months, Phoneparts will still consider a refund for the defective item.

All tools are covered by the European legal warranty, which is as follows:

  • 12-month warranty for professional users
  • 24-month warranty for individual users.

The customer will always be responsible for the return shipping cost, unless there are special agreements in place between Phoneparts and the customer.

How the defective products are refunded?

If Phoneparts determines that the product is defective, the refund will be issued either as credit points in your account wallet or according to the payment method selected at the time of ordering. In some cases, a replacement of the defective product may also be possible.

The customer will always be responsible for the return shipping cost, unless there are special agreements in place between Phoneparts and the customer.

What conditions must a defective product meet to be eligible for a refund?

All defective products must be returned in their original packaging, including:

Tools: original box, accessories, power cable, and all protective parts. Phoneparts will not consider products with missing or damaged packaging.

Spare Parts: All spare parts must be returned in their original packaging, including any protective materials such as airbag packaging, front and rear protection film, and adhesive protection film.

If the customer is unable to return the defective product with all its parts, they must inform Phoneparts staff beforehand and obtain a shipping authorization.

The customer will always be responsible for the return shipping cost, unless there are special agreements in place between Phoneparts and the customer.
