The Warranty + Return Policy
SKITCH Return Policy
The dreaded return policy… This is the awkward conversation that no shop wants to have with their customers. But it’ll be way more awkward if we gloss over this part—don’t you think? Look, we want you to be happy, satisfied. And if you know us, you’ll know that we’ll do just about everything in our power to make sure of that. But at the end of the day, we’re limited by the policies of our suppliers and manufacturers. And unless we want to go out of business, our own policies have to reflect these limitations.
So please read our return policy carefully.
Our General Warranty
Our general warranty comes into effect the moment you purchase something from us, and remains in effect for 30 calendar days from purchase.
Please if your Product is not sealed or open, for example you have purchased a display or clearance product at a discount price please inspect your items carefully before you leave the store, as wear and tear, scuffs, and scratches will automatically void your warranty.
You may return any item for store credit as long as it is sealed from manufacture for example Tanks, Mods, Coils, Battery Chargers. (if it is still SEALED you must bring it back with your receipt. NO RECIPT NO RETURN)
What is NOT covered by the shops general warranty
Consumable items (e-liquid, tanks, coils, batteries, accessories, and parts)
Damaged devices (improper usage, water damage, drops, abuse, wear and tear)
Tank leaks, dry hits, or shorted coils
Units functioning up to spec (i.e. you changed your mind)
Using improper or damaged battery in device
What IS covered at the shop
*YOU MUST CHECK YOUR DEVICE AT THE SHOP if you leave and find out its broken you will be directed to return your device to the Manufacture (this is not our rule but we have to follow it)
DOA (Dead on Arrival) devices (not turning on or functioning)
Chip issues (auto-firing, not recognizing any atomizers, “low battery” on a fully charged battery)
Internal battery defects (if applicable)
All of this comes down to your device being defective. Basically, if you received a lemon, we’ll have no issues switching it out for you. But if your device has any visible damage or signs of improper usage, we won’t be able to offer a replacement. This is because none of our suppliers will accept returns on visibly damaged or misused items. So to avoid potential issues, please inspect your device and test it as soon as you purchase it.
Determining warranty coverage
In order to determine whether or not your device is covered by our shop warranty, we’ll have to work through a comprehensive troubleshooting process. We have two big reasons for doing this. Firstly, most warranty claims are not actually defective units. They’re usually fairly simple issues that can be resolved with the guidance of our vape experts. Secondly, in order for returns to be processed with our suppliers and manufacturers, we have to meet some very strict conditions. Devices much match the number of the devices original box. If you threw away your box, then you threw away your warranty.
Was the device working out of the box?
When did the problem first arise?
Can the problem be replicated?
Is the exterior damaged, scuffed, scratched, or bent?
Is the battery door in good condition?
Are the battery terminals damaged or shifted?
Are the 510 pin, seal, and threading damaged?
Are there signs of water damage?
Are there signs of fire damage?
Does it smell like burnt plastic?
Does the issue persist with different tanks?
Does the issue persist with different batteries?
Are the device settings correct?
Can the issue be resolved with a firmware update/downgrade?
If you are visiting our store, keep in mind that this process may take up to 30 minutes. So please plan your visit accordingly.
Returns & Exchanges
Sealed items ONLY: Items still sealed in the original manufacturer’s packaging can be returned for store credit within 30 days of purchase. Receipt must be present to process returns. Product serial number must match to the serial number on the receipt. If your item is covered under our shop warranty, you are eligible to exchange it for a sealed item of the same SKU (if the item is in-stock), a SKU of equal value, or store credit.
Final Sale Products
Because a large percentage of vaping products are consumable/cannot be officially refurbished, their manufacturers do not accept returns. So vape store policies have to reflect this as well. As such, the following products are final sale
All Vape & Alcohol products sold at SKITCH is intended for adults ONLY. A valid form of I.D and proof of age (18+) will be required upon purchase of any and all VAPE & Alcohol products.
Thank-you for your time
