However, for products that fall within the extended supplier’s warranty, the process can take up to 21 days. At that stage, because we want your experience to be as good as possible – if the supplier or manufacturer has offered you a repair/ replacement but it takes longer than 21 days to resolve the matter, we will get in touch with you to see if you would rather receive a refund directly from us.

You will receive an email notification once your return has been received at our processing centre.

What are the options available for a returned product?

Yes, but mostly not by us - please refer to our Warranty and Returns policy. Almost every product is covered by the warranty provided by the manufacturer. But if your precious new item breaks, it's easiest to get in touch with us and we'll have them contact you.

What if my product stops working (within 6 months of delivery)?

If you notify us of a defect or poor quality within our Standard Warranty period (within 6 months of receiving your original order), you can return it to us at no charge. A ‘defect’ is a material imperfection in the manufacturing of a product or any characteristic of a product, which makes the product less acceptable than one would reasonably be entitled to expect in the circumstances.
The following will NOT be regarded as a defect:

  • faults resulting from normal wear and tear;
  • damage arising from negligence, user abuse or incorrect usage of the product;
  • damage arising from electrical surges or sea air corrosion;
  • damage arising from a failure to adequately care for the product;
  • damage arising from unauthorised alterations to the product;
  • where the specifications of a product do not suit you, although accurately described by End of the Line and generally fit for its intended purpose;
  • in relations to Unboxed Deals, signs of handling and/or repackaging.

If your return request falls within this policy and is deemed eligible for a return, once we have inspected the product and validated your return, we will at your choice either:

  • deliver the correct product to you (if the correct product is available) or;
  • refund you with the purchase price of the product.

What if I received a damaged product?

We do our best to ensure that the products we deliver are in a good working order and we’re sorry if that’s not been the case with the item you received

If you notify us within 3 days of delivery of your order, you can return it to us at no charge and, if stock is available, we will do our best to immediately arrange a replacement. If your return request falls within this policy and is deemed eligible for a return, we will:

  • replace the correct product to you (if the correct product is available) or;
  • refund you with the purchase price of the product.

Note on Unboxed Deals:
If you request a return of an Unboxed Deal and a repair is not possible, we will see if we have an exact replacement Unboxed Deal product in stock but if we don’t, we will credit or refund you. A new product in perfect condition is not considered the same product as an Unboxed Deal and an exchange of this kind cannot be granted. This is why Unboxed Deals are discounted, compared to products in perfect condition.


Why does the price of my item change when I try to check out?

Red Basket Deals and other discounted items have limited stock and these offers are available for a limited time only. Once these offers sell out or expire, the items will revert to their pre-deal or discounted price.

Occasionally, where the limited deal-priced stock of an item sells incredibly fast, the product page price might take a short time to update, but the price displayed in your cart summary when you check out will always be the correct and final price of the product. Always double check your final cart summary before checking out.

Deals and discounted prices are only secured through payment and not by adding them to your cart. We’re only able to honour deal and discount prices for the amount of stock that was made available for these offers.

Can you give me more information about a product?

We provide all the available product information that we have from our suppliers on every product page. You’ll find all the important details in the 'Description' and in the 'Product Details tab' on each product page.

When will the item I want be in stock?

All out of stock items will be replenished as soon as more stock is available to us. You can check back on the product page to see if the item you have your eye on is available again.

We don't currently have an automated alert system to let you know when an item is due back in stock.

What happens if a product is out of stock?

If a product goes out of stock, it will reflect as such on the website or will no longer be visible on the website.

We do our best to prevent sales of products that are out of stock, but due to the digital nature of our business the opportunity exists for an item to go out of stock after an order is placed. If you have already ordered the product on the website when it goes out of stock, we’ll let you know. You will then have the option to be refunded or credited for any amount already paid by you, or you can wait until the product comes into stock again.

If I receive the wrong product or the product is not as described on the website, what should I do?

If a product is not what you ordered or not as described, you can return it to us at no charge, provided that:

  • you request a return within 3 days of receiving your order (after 3 days, you can only return a product if it is defective);
  • it is undamaged and unused, with the original labels and stickers still attached;
  • it is in the original packaging, which must be undamaged and in its original condition with all seals still intact (except if it is an Unboxed Deal);
  • it is not missing any accessories or parts;

If your return request falls within this policy and is deemed eligible for a return, once we have inspected the product and validated your return, we will at your choice either:

  • deliver the correct product to you (if the correct product is available) or;
  • refund you with the purchase price of the product.
