  • RMA# is required for all returns: See “return procedures” below. RMA = “Return Merchandise Authorization”
  • Any defective item will be replaced or the price and shipping fee will be refunded.
  • “Open Box” returns in cases in which Data Alliance is not at fault: 30% restocking fee.
    • The 30% is just for the “open box” condition, because we can then not sell it as new.
    • If there is any damage to packaging or missing packaging, the restocking fee will be more than 30%
    • If there is any damage or wear / sign of use such as mark(s), scratch(es), scuff(s) or sun-fading, the re-stocking fee will be at least 50% and up to 80%, depending on condition.
  • Exchange requests based on buyer mistake: We approve all return requests, with these conditions:
    • Buyer will be asked to pay shipping fee
    • Request should be made within 30 days of purchases date.
    • Item should be unused (“like new”) and packaging should be undamaged. If packaging is damaged, we may charge a re-stocking fee.

  2. Write the RMA # on the outside of the package, as follows: You will receive an RMA# by email when Customer Service accepts your RMA request.
  3. Send the package by UPS ground or regular first-class mail, to the address that you receive in the “Return Merchandise Authorization” (“RMA”) email.

Upon receipt at our Arizona office: Our shipping/receiving person logs all incoming RMA packages in our RMA database: You will receive an email acknowledgement when the return-package is logged into our RMA database.
