Terms and Conditions
Please read the entire agreement, you can always contact us if you have any questions. By using and ordering from this website you agree to these terms. If you do not agree, please do not use this site. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us. Thanks for your patience!
We accept credit card, PayPal and T/T Wire Transfers as payment for orders. For T/T Wire Transfers payments, the order will not ship until the payment is received and 'clears'. For PayPal eCheck, we will not ship until the payment clears. Due to potential fraud and misuse, we may decide not to ship an order, or request additional verification information for credit card or PayPal payments. Credit cards must clear the authorization process.
Orders that have been on hold (order is placed, but payment has not cleared) for more than 5 days, will be canceled. Universities and schools please note, once your order has been placed payment needs to be received withing 2 business days. If not, then the any inventory used for that order will be made available for other orders and could be placed in back order status. If payment is not made within the next 15 days, the order will be canceled.
Shipping and Processing Terms
We can't add or remove any item to an order that has already been placed. Orders may be combined but will not be modified; once you place your order we are unable to change. If you miss any items you can place a new order, and if any previous orders have not been shipped, it is possible to combine them.
We strive to ship orders are soon as possible, however we do not guarantee delivery or shipment dates. Orders are shipped to the delivery address noted in the customer order. This address is noted in the email sent to the customer upon ordering and is also available in the account order history. For international orders, you are also responsible for any tariffs, taxes, fees, VAT, duties due upon receipt. You are responsible for filing any claims with carriers for damaged and/or lost shipments.
We strongly encourage using a traceable shipping method (FedEx). Use of non-traceable shipping (USPS) is at customer's own risk and there is no way to retrieve or locate the package once it has been sent. We are not responsible for delays, loss or damage stemming from shipments sent to incorrect, invalid addresses or correct addresses (USPS). Orders may end up being returned for various reasons including: non-payment of tariffs, incorrect address, unclaimed at post office, etc. If a package is returned or rejected, the customer will be contacted and will have to pay for re-shipment postage. We are not responsible for damaged or lost packages shipped via USPS at any time and under any circumstance.
Not all packages are insured. For FedEx, packages are insured and claims may be filed almost immediately, but its best to wait a few days. For United States Postal Service (USPS), there is no insurance offered. Claims for domestic packages must be filed no earlier than 21 days after shipment and before 90 days. Claims for international packages must be filed between 45-90 days except for Italy which is 60-90 days. Due to shipping issues, USPS is no longer available in the following countries: Brazil, Turkey and Poland. Please note that when you chose to declare a value that is less than actual value, the insurance will cover the declared value, regardless of the actual cost.
We do not ship products to the following countries: Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Syria, North Korea, Myanmar (formerly Burma), Yugoslavia and Sudan. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Orders cannot be canceled once they have shipped. Goods cannot be returned for any reason including a customer no longer needing or wanting a product or lack of product knowledge unless the item is defective or faulty, in which case the following applies.
All goods are checked before they are sent out. In the unlikely event that goods are faulty, they must be returned to the Samurai Circuits store at the address listed on your order invoice within 90 days of receipt , providing that the device has not been altered beyond that necessary to evaluate it, has no physical damage, and has been properly soldered or assembled by the user. Manufacturing defects identified during that period will be repaired by Samurai Circuits or replaced by with the same item.
The Samurai Circuits store will not accept goods that have been clearly used more than the amount needed to evaluate their functionality. If the goods are found to be in working condition and the lack of functionality is a result of knowledge or assembly error on the customer's part, no refund will be made, but the goods will be returned to the user at their expense. If there is evidence that the product has been modified or an effort to "fix" it has been made, the Samurai Circuits store will not be responsible and therefore will not provide an exchange.
For other products distributed but not manufactured directly by the Samurai Circuits store (i.e. cameras, broadband amplifiers, etc.), we will replace the defective part withing 10 days of delivery confirmation. The item must be as it was shipped, with no modifications, original packaging and contents. Order cancellations/refunds apply with the following conditions: 1.- When we can no longer provide one or more items of the actual order (i.e. discontinued parts). 2.- When on or more items of the actual order are not expected to be shipped within 30 days or more. 3.- When one or more items of the actual order is marked as In Stock but was actually Out of Stock due to an inventory error. Return shipment is the responsibility of the customer. All returns are credited as store credit upon receipt. RMAs are required for returns. Once the RMA has been issued, the customer has to return the item within 10 days of the issue date. If the item is not shipped within that time frame, the RMA will be nullified. Any order discrepancies must be communicated within 30 days or order receipt. This applies to any missing parts in kits, orders in packages, etc. After the 30 day window, we cannot be held responsible for any missing items.
