Return Policy

MANUFACTURING ERROR

The customer has already talked to NPE and NPE has declared the problem a manufacturing error. If the customer is in the US, NPE will provide a return label and a free replacement product. If the customer does not want a replacement and just a refund, NPE will refund the full product price + shipping. However, the defective product must return to NPE before the issuance of the refund. And, if a customer is not in the US, they will either receive a full refund of the product + shipping, or a free replacement. Due to high international shipping rates, NPE will not have the product returned.

NON MANUFACTURING ERROR

If the customer mistakenly bought the product or the customer does not want it, the customer will need to ship the product back to NPE at their own cost. Finally, once NPE physically receives the product, the customer will receive the refund. The refund includes the product price minus a 25% restocking fee. The shipping cost will not require a refund.

UNIDENTIFIED DEFECT

If a customer does not want to troubleshoot, they will need to ship the product back to NPE at their own cost. After that, we can inspect it once NPE has received the product. If the problem identifies itself as a manufacturing error, the customer will receive a refund of the product price + the initial shipping cost. If there is no manufacturing defect, your refund will be the price minus a 25% restocking fee. The shipping cost will not be refunded.
