Customised & built to order items

Customised & built to order items are generally not applicable for “change of mind” returns or cancelation during the build process. Nekotronics expects the customer to communicate their concerns of customised items before shipping so any problems can be solved. Customers are always shown finalised builds of customised and made to order items before shipping to ensure this.

Any cancelation of a customised or built to order item by the customer premature to the delivery date will be penalised by a 20% restocking fee. This is due to the difficulty of reselling a custom product and loss of parts and time already spent.

In some cases Nekotronics will refuse the refund completely. This will depend on the order and situation.

Return and refund process

Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. Your item will then be examined. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.

If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within 7-30 days.

Please note that paypal fees cannot be refunded and will be deducted from your refund.

Nekotronics will refuse refunds for the following reasons

  • Item is damaged by customer
  • Item has been used by customer
  • missing parts or packaging
  • Customer tampering

In some cases Nekotronics may accept the refund but offer only a partial refund to reflect the situation. This will be decided on a case by case basis.
