How Does SmartgearFactory Protect Me When I Make a Purchase?
We believe that the best way to protect a customer is before a problem occurs in the first place. That is why we offer our customers a full 60 Day Money Back Guarantee, no questions asked.

We want you to have the best shopping experience, therefore we act with you in a total transparency so you can, in case of conflict with us or any other store, protect yourself. Shopping online should be a pleasure and 100% Secure for any buyer!

SmartgearFactory is not like other mainstream online store.
  • We accept different types of payment. PayPal, Credit, and Debit Cards with all major credit card logos. 
  • PayPal transactions give our customers the PayPal Buyer Protection Program.
  • If a PayPal Dispute isn’t available we will handle disputes through our SmartgearFactory Dispute Program, which covers any transaction that does not get resolved under the PayPal Purchase Protection Program.
  • With this program your dispute is assigned a SmartgearFactory dispute department staff member. Your dispute will be handled by a real human who understands how important getting this resolved is.
  • Used a Credit Card, Debit Card, or Gift Card instead of PayPal? We have you covered and will have you contact your bank directly for a refund or chargeback. 
What Is PayPal Buyer Protection Program?
PayPal Purchase Protection covers you if you have a problem that cannot be resolved directly with us. When you file a dispute, PayPal helps you get your money back.
PayPal Protection covers eligible transactions for the full purchase price, plus original shipping charges.
To qualify for PayPal Purchase Protection:
  • Use PayPal to pay for your item.
  • Pay for the item in one payment. Items purchased with multiple or partial payments aren’t eligible.
  • Open a dispute in PayPal’s Resolution Center within 180 days of your purchase to let SmartgearFactory know there’s a problem with the transaction.
  •  Escalate the dispute to a claim within 20 days of the date you opened the dispute. When you file a claim, you’re asking PayPal to decide whether you should get a refund.
  •  Keep your PayPal account in good standing.
How does PayPal protect you?
If an eligible item that you've bought online doesn't arrive or doesn't match the SmartgearFactory's description, PayPal’s Buyer Protection will reimburse you for the full amount of the item plus shipping and packaging costs. Buyer Protection covers eligible online purchases when you use PayPal.

How do you get your money back from PayPal?
If something does go wrong with your eligible purchase, simply file a dispute within 180 days. To do so, log in to your PayPal account and find the transaction in question in your Activity. Click on the transaction then Contact SmartgearFactory, and follow the prompts.

Note: Paypal Protection is not available in every country, so please check to make sure your purchase qualifies.

What Is SmartgearFactory Buyer Guarantee and How Does It Work?
All SmartgearFactory customers receive the following guarantees for each purchase on SmartgearFactory:

1.   A full refund or replacement if you don’t receive your order.
You will get a full refund if your order does not arrive within the promised delivery timeframe as listed by us.
Some exceptions that do not qualify for a full refund are:
  • Your order did not arrive due to factors within your control. (I.e. the wrong shipping address was provided)
  • Your order did not arrive due to circumstances beyond SmartgearFactory’s control. (I.e. customs delays, natural disasters, inclement weather impacting carrier delivery schedules.)
  • Other circumstances outside of the control of SmartgearFactory.
2.   Items Not as Described.
You can opt to receive a full refund if the item is not as described. (I.e. you ordered a purple purse but received green)
Or you can opt to keep the item and receive a partial refund of the purchase price.
If your item is not as described SmartgearFactory will cover the return shipping cost. However, if you can accept the item as-is you can negotiate a partial refund with the seller directly. Otherwise, you will receive a full refund as noted by our return policy.

What if You Are Outside of the PayPal buyer Protection Policy?

If your order is outside of the PayPal’s buyer protection policy, you may still be eligible to file a dispute and possibly get a refund via your credit card company or bank that you used to pay for the transaction.
In situations where you want to submit a chargeback or stop-payment on an order please contact your credit card company or bank directly to find out if you are eligible.
