Simple 3 Step Defective Exchange Procedure
Step 1: Check Your Return
All products being returned must be 100% complete and must be packaged in original packaging. All packing materials, manuals, CDs, cables, switches, digital media, blank warranty cards and other accessories and documentation must be included in the original packaging, as provided by the manufacturer. A defective return will not be processed in the event any item(s) included in the original shipment to you is not present in the returned package. Items sent for return consideration will be immediately denied and GO Satellite’s defective return policy will not be honored in the event that a return shipment is received by us improperly packaged, altered or physically damaged.
Step 2: Request For An RMA Number
Email for a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) Number. Defective returns will not be accepted at our warehouse without a valid Return Merchandize Authorization (RMA) number. RMA numbers will expire after 14 days. Any return we receive without an RMA number will be documented and returned COD back to you.
Step 3: Ship and Insure Your Return
We strongly recommend that you fully insure the package you are returning. This is for your protection, in the event the package is lost or damaged in transit. We suggest that you use a “traceable carrier” that can provide you with “proof of delivery.” GOsatellite will not be responsible for items returned that are lost or damaged in transit. Postage and handling charges, both to and from our warehouse will be paid by you, the customer, and is non-refundable.
All items will be inspected and tested upon receipt.
Any discrepancies including, but not limited to, the following list will result in the package being returned to the customer COD and credit or replacement will NOT be issued.
The following criteria will be followed in rejecting defective returns:

Open Box Items
GO Satellite does not offer defective exchange on open box or clearance items. All sales are final. Open box items have been inspected by our technicians and found to be in perfect working condition. All parts and instructions available at the time of open box item listing are included in the item packaging.
We do not accept returns or exchanges for satellite antenna’s including the Vu Qube as we only sell product that is new in the box. We have no way of retailing an opened item satellite antenna. If a part of the antenna is defective or missing we will replace that portion.
We do not provide or condone the use of third party software. Using third party software will void product warranty. All the FTA satellite receivers we retail are designed and intended for 100% legal free to air use only. All the FTA receivers we sell have been pre-loaded with the latest manufactures software by the manufacture. Do not load any file to your receiver without first contacting the product manufacturer. Only factory trained technicians are authorized to upgrade software to an FTA receiver. In the event that an FTA receiver is returned as defective and it is determined that factory or third party software was incorrectly installed which caused the damage, you will be charged a technicians fee, a repair fee, and return shipping. The fastest and safest way to get an FTA receiver repaired or replaced under the manufactures warranty terms is to contact the product manufacture and have one of their factory trained technicians look at the receiver.
General Order Cancellations
If you request an order to be canceled we must be given 24 hours notice prior to shipment. If you cancel an order the same day that it is shipping we may not be able to stop the package as it may already be processed. If the package is shipped you will be asked to refuse the shipment and the item will be refunded once we receive the package back. Shipping charges that we incur from the courier company (both to your location and the return shipment back to us) are the responsibility of the customer. There will also be a $15.00 refund fee to be applied to the credit.
Cancellation of an Order in Transit
If you decide to cancel your order and the accounting dept has already captured the funds for the order, you will be charged a 4% unrecoverable merchant fee, plus a $5 refund transaction fee. If your product has already been shipped, the shipping costs are not refundable. You will also be charged for the return shipping cost.
Lost Packages, Missing Products, and Courier Claims
In the event that the shipping company has lost your package, damaged your package, or items are missing from your order you must report this to the shipping company within 3 days of delivery. Also call our customer service dept within 3 days of delivery so we can open a claim or ship the missing items. A claim cannot be started after 3 days from the date of delivery, so please inspect your order completely. We are unable to issue refunds on lost packages, damaged packages, or missing products.
Credit Card chargeback
If you place a chargeback with your credit card company (on purpose or by mistake) for an order that you placed and received, there will be a $50.00 research fee charged to your account upon reversal of the chargeback by our merchant provider to cover our investigative expenses to prove that you did make the purchase and that you did receive it . NO EXCEPTIONS! - If you do not remember making the purchase - call the number on your statement next to the charge BEFORE calling your bank!
If you wrongfully and fraudulently dispute a credit card charge, GOsatellite.com will turn all your information, including, but not limited to address, phone number, and IP address to a third-party collection agency. Your account will be reported to all credit bureaus as a delinquent collection account and this will severely damage your credit rating for at least the next seven (7) years. Credit card fraud is a crime and will not be treated lightly. No expense will be spared and all fraud without exception will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. In addition, we will pursue civil legal action seeking any loss of income related to the fraud, including business, legal fees, research costs, employee down time and loss of revenues.
We consider credit card chargebacks to be fraud if you made no reasonable effort to notify us that a problem existed, indicate the transaction was not as described, or to resolve or clarify a situation or matter. A simple phone call, email or letter normally resolves any misunderstandings. In days old this was called "common courtesy".
No Defective Exchanges will be accepted without a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. We do not offer refunds on returns defective or not. No exchanges on non-defective merchandise. All sales are final. We will (at our sole discretion) exchange or repair any defective product within 7 days of arrival. In the event that a store credit or refund if given on any product for any reason it will be subject to a restocking fee and a refurbishment fee if applicable.
Please ensure that all contents included in the shipment, as well as packaging, and weigh-bills are all saved and in tact for the courier to complete their inspection. Without these items the courier may not proceed with the claim and in this event GO Satellite will not be held responsible. Please ensure that you keep these items and do not discard of them.
