1. RETURNS AND REFUNDS

1.1   ORDER CANCELLATIONS

Unshipped Orders:

MERGE SCREENS engages with a designated Payment Processor to facilitate transactions. A fee of 3.5% of the total purchase value is levied by the Payment Processor for each transaction. It is important to note that this fee is non-refundable, even in instances where MERGE SCREENS issues a full refund to a customer following a cancellation initiated by the customer.

Therefore, in the event of a cancellation request from a customer, a cancellation fee equivalent to 3.5% of the purchase value will be applied. This measure is to offset the non-recoverable costs incurred by MERGE SCREENS in the course of receiving and processing payments.

As a gesture of our appreciation and to foster a continued relationship, should customers decide to make a subsequent purchase from MERGE SCREENS, the previously applied 3.5% cancellation fee will be credited back to them in the form of a discount voucher. This policy reflects our commitment to customer satisfaction and gratitude for their loyalty.


Shipped Orders:

If your order has shipped and you opt to cancel, Section 1.2 will apply. You must first receive the item and then contact us to initiate the return.

If delivery is refused or undeliverable, we will deduct $50 from your refund on top of applicable restocking fees to cover for return shipping.
