An open-box item looks and feels brand new, although its packaging can sometimes show some wear and tear.
If a product is being sold as an open box item then it should be the same level of quality as a brand new item. Open box items are equivalent to the brand new article.
Refurbished products are returned items in excellent condition that have been reconditioned and repackaged.
A refurbished product is a product that operates the same as a new product but may have minor blemishes that do not affect the functionality of that product.
Used electronics are the cheapest available deals in the market. The term ‘used’ confines to electronic goods that have been used lightly or heavily by the consumers. Yet, even after a long-term or short-term use, these electronics are fit to function properly.
At Phonebot.com.au, we stand behind our product! That's why we offer a 7 Day Change Of Mind Guarantee on all Phonebot certified refurbished products and 6 months general warranty.
If for any reason you are unsatisfied with your purchase of a Phonebot refurbished product, you can contact us within 7 days of taking delivery, and organize to return the product.
We currently accept Paypal and Poli (Visa, MasterCard, bank transfers)
