SHIPPING

Orders are normally processed and shipped within 1 business day. On rare occasions processing can take 2-3 business days. You will receive an order confirmation email letting you know we’ve received your order and is being prepared to ship. Orders with tracking will receive a shipping confirmation email with tracking information once its available. Estimated shipping timelines are not guaranteed. We are unable to issue refunds for shipping delays as they are beyond our control.

Please allow extra time for orders to be processed and shipped during holidays.

Orders are shipped from our warehouses in Canada & Southeast Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, and China). As our items are stored in several warehouses, sometimes your order may be shipped in separate packages.

Tracking numbers are included in your shipping confirmation email.

Items Shipped From Southeast Asia:

The Genie Tech works with manufacturers and artisans across the world to source the coolest products at the prices that suit you.

This results in all our orders being shipped to you from across the world – from South East Asia. However we do ensure we can track our orders for your extra piece of mind.

Yet because your products are coming from so far away they often take 14-20 days to arrive. So no worrying if the product doesn’t arrive the next day! Most the time your product will arrive a lot quicker, but we want you to be aware this is out of our control!

This does mean we ship worldwide, so you can shop with us wherever you are and to make up for the extra time of delivery we offer FREE Shipping on all orders shipped from countries in South East Asia.

Customs, Postal Services & The Genie Tech are different entities, hence we are not liable for any delays caused by customs or local post services and cannot be made responsible for the customs services in your country. 

Payment of customs charges and taxes is the responsibility of the recipient and will not be covered by us here at the The Genie Tech. For further details of charges, please contact your local customs office.

If your order is held up in customs, we suggest calling your country's customs department directly and asking them to release your items.

Sometimes postal tracking services mark an order as delivered when it has reached your local post office, even though you have not yet received your package. In this case, please wait a few more days for your postal service to deliver the package to your home or contact your local post office as they may hold the item for you. 

Please note that we source our products from various suppliers so it is not uncommon to receive a few packages from us at different times. If you did not receive a tracking number for an item you are expecting, please contact our customer support and they will gladly help you track it. 

In the event that the parcels were returned to us, please contact us immediately so we can arrange to send you a replacement. For UAE / HK customers, please ensure to provide your PO Box or Zip Code (whichever is available) so your local post office can deliver your order(s) to your mail box or door step.

ORDERING FROM US

Please enter your discount coupon in the checkout page, underneath the product description.

No. Promotion and discount codes cannot be combined.

Absolutely. Are you are interested in buying gifts for your office? Looking for a bunch of special birthday presents? If you want to buy in bulk from us, contact our customer support team and we will offer you a generous discount, expedited shipping and other perks. 

If you wish to change or cancel your order, you are allowed to do so only before your item has been shipped. Please request your cancellation within 12 hours of the time of purchase. 

Once we have sent out your shipping confirmation email, we no longer have the ability to make changes or to cancel the order.

Our confirmation emails are sent out automatically by our order fulfillment system. If you did not receive this email from us, kindly check your SPAM folder to see if your confirmation email was sent there. 

PAYMENTS

We accept all major credit cards as well as PayPal. 

All prices will be shown in local currency depending on which country (GEO IP address) the customer is in for their convenience. However, when customer checks out, they will be billed in CAD. Your bank or card service provider will automatically convert your subtotal depending on their current conversion rates.

We use a currency converter widget on our site that converts all CAD prices (our main currency) to local currencies based on our visitor's IP address.

So if a customer from Australia saw a gadget in our newsletter quoted in CAD and then went to our site, it will show them the same item in AUD at a different price. Simply conversion of rates.

RETURNS

If you have received a damaged or faulty product, please send us photographic, or video proof of the damage and we will send you a new working item right away (free of charge of course).

We believe in our products and offer a 14 day No-Hassle refund policy. If you're unhappy about your purchase, send us the product back and we'll refund your money.
