Shipping Policy

Shipping will be calculated at checkout with expedited shipping options available on some items. Most items are available in most countries worldwide. Not all items are available in all countries. Genius Lab Gear is not responsible for paying tariffs or VAT charges when the items arrive in the destination country.  

Large items such as artwork, gift boxes and apparel will be shipped as a parcel. Items may arrive separately. 

Genius Lab Gear is not responsible for costs of re-shipping items that failed delivery due to the customer not being home or incorrect address entry. 

FAQ: Do you ship orders to the UK & EU? If so, how will orders be shipped?

Yes, we ship to the UK & EU. To get your order to you, we've partnered with Passport Shipping and they will be the Seller for all orders to the UK for orders under £135 and orders to the EU for orders €150 and Under.

Refund Policy

Returns 
We are happy to offer a 30-day refund policy on most items subject to the terms below.

To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging.

Several types of goods are exempt from being returned. Products which are individually printed to the order specifications (shirts, bandanas, apparel, tote bags, mugs and artwork) cannot be refunded except in the case where the item is defective upon arrival. These items cannot be returned due to personal preference or sizing. 

Using single-item printing allows us to offer many more sizes, colors and options than carrying inventory from large print runs and also reduce waste of unsold inventory and over-manufacturing. Due to these methods, returned items are not likely to be re-sold and shipping costs are often prohibitive compared to the item value. If you are unhappy with your size or color choice, please email us and we can work with you to discount a replacement.

Items that can be returned for any reason include stickers, pins, pocket cards, word magnets and gift boxes. Except in rare circumstances, the customer is responsible for the shipping cost of the return. If an individually printed item is defective upon arrival, we will require pictures of the problem area(s) before processing the return. 

Cancellation

Orders may not be cancelled before delivery for any reason. The ordered item(s) must be delivered and returned to us following our return policy below. 

Exchanges (if applicable) 

We only replace items if they are defective or damaged. If you need to exchange it for the same item, send us an email at info@geniuslabgear.com and send your item to: P.O. Box 16421, Columbus, OH 43216, USA.

Refunds from returns (if applicable) 
Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. 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 a certain amount of days.

Refunds from delivery issues

All items must be returned to us to receive a refund unless it is determined lost in the mail by the carrier. Items mailed without tracking may be refunded if not delivered by the last date stated at checkout. Refunds due to lost or delayed mail may take up to 45 days from the start of the complaint to be resolved and refunded.

Genius Lab Gear is not responsible for packages that are delivered correctly by the carrier but lost or stolen at the residence. Signature confirmation may be requested for additional charge by sending an email to info@geniuslabgear.com immediately after placing your order. 

Late or missing refunds (if applicable) 
If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again. 
Then contact your credit card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted. 
Next contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted. 
If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us at info@geniuslabgear.com.

Gifts 
If the item was marked as a gift when purchased and shipped directly to you, you’ll receive a gift credit for the value of your return. Once the returned item is received, a gift certificate will be mailed to you.

If the item wasn’t marked as a gift when purchased, or the gift giver had the order shipped to themselves to give to you later, we will send a refund to the gift giver and he will find out about your return.

Shipping

Ensure you have verification from Genius Lab Gear customer support before shipping your item back to us. (orders@geniuslabgear.com)

A return shipping label will be provided for you in most cases and charged to your original order.

You will be responsible for paying for your own shipping costs for returning your item. Shipping costs are non-refundable. If you receive a refund, the cost of return shipping will be deducted from your refund.

Depending on where you live, the time it may take for your exchanged product to reach you, may vary.

If you are shipping an item over $25, you should consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We can’t guarantee that we will receive your returned item.

 

International Shipping Terms of Service

Schedule 1. Terms and Conditions

1. You are shopping on a merchant’s website (the “Merchant”).

2. If you place a Qualifying Customer Order, the Product(s) that you are purchasing will be sold first by the Merchant to Passport Global Inc (“Passport”), and then by Passport to you under these Terms and Conditions. Your payment information, shipping address, and any additional information required or requested to complete your order will be shared directly with Passport and its nominated agents and contractors, in order to enable Passport to complete your Qualifying Customer Order.

3. Your Qualifying Customer Order is subject to: (1) these Terms and Conditions; and (2) any relevant terms and conditions imposed by the Merchant. By completing your purchase, you confirm that you have read and agree to be bound by all of these. By placing a Qualifying Customer Order on the Merchant’s website, you understand and agree that:

3.1 You are dealing with and providing your information to Passport. Passport may contact you about your order.

3.2 If there is an error in the price listed for a Product on the Merchant’s website, or in the price applied to the product during the sale of and processing of your order for the Product, Passport and its nominated agents are entitled to contact you, correct the price, and/or cancel your order.

3.3 The Merchant remains responsible for handling payment for your order.

3.4 Once your payment is processed, ownership in the items will shift from Passport, to you.

3.5 Certain addresses will be ineligible for shipment, such as PO box addresses.

3.6 Passport may refuse service, refuse to process or complete Qualifying Customer Orders, remove or edit content, or cancel such orders for any reason or for no reason, in its sole discretion.

3.7 If you are under the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you reside, approval of your parent or guardian is required to complete your purchase.

3.8 You authorise Passport and its nominated agents and contractors to perform any of the following activities in connection with the delivery of any Products: (i) to act as your agent to make and file customs declarations and all related actions as your direct representative, which expressly includes completing any documents, amending product or Harmonised System codes, and paying any duties, taxes or penalties required under applicable laws and regulations; (ii) to act as forwarding agent for customs import and export control purposes solely for the purpose of designating a customs broker to perform customs clearance and entry; and (iii) to redirect an order to your customs broker or other address upon request by any person whom Passport’s nominated agents and contractors believe in its reasonable opinion to be authorised.

4. Currency. You may select your preferred payment method and currency from a list of options available at the time of checkout. Please note that the relative value of currencies may vary, and as a result, the actual purchase price for items in your order may vary based on the currency selected.

5. Billing. If you use a payment card or other electronic form of payment as your payment type, the charges to your account for your order will be subject to the Merchant’s terms and conditions.

6. Shipping. Items in your order may be shipped via a single shipment, or via multiple shipments. If items in your Qualifying Customer Order are shipped via multiple shipments, or if your order is only partially filled and shipped, you will only be charged for those items that are actually shipped to you.

7. Chargebacks, Fraud Prevention and Void Transactions. For your protection, Passport may use various fraud prevention protocols and policies, and industry-standard verification systems, to reduce fraud and minimize chargeback risks. You must comply with such protocols and policies, including card authentication, and “ship to” and “bill to” address verification. Once an order is placed, you may not change any authenticated payment information or any verified “ship to”/“bill to” address. If there is a systemic error which results in the processing or acceptance of a transaction for which authorisation has been declined, that transaction will be void.

8. Customer Service and Returns. Questions or complaints about your order should be directed to the Merchant in the first instance. Passport may work with the Merchant as necessary to resolve your issue. The Merchant is authorised to allow for returns or refunds on orders in accordance with the Merchant’s policy, including to reimburse you for the original sales prices of Products returned to the Merchant’s nominated address. Passport may however refuse any return requested if a restriction applies to the item for which the return is requested. You accept that your sole remedies are against the Merchant. Where a return by the Customer is authorised by Passport or the Merchant, Passport shall also have the right to return the item to Merchant and accordingly the Merchant shall issue a credit note to Passport and Passport shall provide a credit note to the Customer, and Passport’s direction, ownership and risk in the Products for return shall pass directly to the Merchant. Where a return is authorised by Passport or the Merchant, the Merchant shall, at Passport’s direction and acting in its name, provide a credit note to the Customer to the extent of the value of the Product(s) authorised to be returned directly to the Merchant. In relation to any return of Products to the Merchant, you authorise Passport and its nominated agents to act on your behalf, and to recover for its own account, any import duties and taxes. If required, you will sign any such document that is reasonably required to facilitate the return of the Products and the recovery of any import duties and taxes.
