1. Return & Refund Policy

All of our products are thoroughly tested both functionally and physically prior to shipment. We can only guarantee the authenticity and therefore only offer returns and repairs for products purchased directly through our website. Products purchased by unauthorized third party sellers are not subject to returns and repairs by ModalAI, Inc. For a copy of your products test records, please request on the forum with the serial number.

Repair and Diagnostic Fee

If you have an item that is malfunctioning, we can offer diagnostic and repair services. Our fee for a diagnostic evaluation is $150. Each unit typically takes around 2 weeks to be inspected after being received. If the unit is deemed repairable, we can repair the broken unit for a repair fee which typically takes 2-4 weeks after diagnostics have been completed.

Please see https://modalai.com/rma for details on our RMA process.

In the case the customer damaged the unit, and it is unrepairable, the diagnostic fee is applied as a discount for replacement units.

Please be sure to exercise proper handling techniques and that you double check all connectors before installation to avoid damage. 

If you return an item to ModalAI for replacement, and that item is verified as either counterfeit or a product not manufactured by ModalAI, you will be notified via e-mail with instructions for retrieving your item. You will have a maximum of 3 business days to request that the item be shipped back to you at your cost.
