Viva La Vape NZ Refund Policy
At Viva La Vape we aim to provide the highest quality products at all times.
Electronic Cigarettes are made up of consumables and replacing such consumables is part of the ongoing costs of using them. They are a much cheaper alternative to smoking and keeping them well maintained will ensure the costs are even lower.
Viva La Vape ensure all items are working correctly (where possible) before they leave our establishment. This means you’ll receive your goods in good working order.
Our policy lasts 30 days. If 30 days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange.
To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging.
Conditions for types of goods
Several types of goods are exempt from being returned. Perishable goods such as food, flowers, newspapers or magazines cannot be returned. We also do not accept products that are intimate or sanitary goods, hazardous materials, or flammable liquids or gases.
Vape juices are considered a consumable product so, Viva La Vape under any circumstances will not accept returns or exchanges for e liquid.
Batteries and battery chargers have a DOA period of 10 days. Should they fail within this timeframe we will gladly replace the faulty item.
Viva La Vape does not provide warranty for Cartomisers, Clearomisers and Atomisers/Coils as they are considered consumable items. They are designed to be used and thrown away after a certain amount of uses. A DOA period of 36 hours upon receipt is applicable to these items so please inspect your delivery upon receipt.
Proof of purchase
To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase.
For all warranty claims, please contact us and your case will be examined in a timely manner. We require all faulty items to be sent back to Viva La Vape in original packaging for inspection.
If there are any signs of user damage due to dropping or misuse, this will void the warranty and the product will not be replaced. We perform these checks as the manufacturer will not replace faulty items due to user error.
Return postage for faulty items is at the expense of the customer. If a replacement is necessary, we will cover the postage of the replacement item. If we find no fault with the item or there are signs of damage or misuse, the return postage will be at the customer’s expense.
Please do not send your purchase back to the manufacturer.
Refunds (if applicable)
Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.
