Returns Policy

 This returns policy forms part of our Terms of service.
 
We believe that returning your product should be as easy as it was when you placed your order for it.
 
We require all returns for any reason to have an RA Number. Pretty much all items on Connected Devices can be returned for any reason for a full refund except items that we’ve ordered specially for you. These items are indicated by “Special Import” in the title of the product.
 
For any queries on the above or our policy or to get an RA Number, please get in touch via help@connecteddevices.co.za
