Warranty & Replacement
Thank you very much for purchasing Mercusys products. In order to protect your rights and interests, please read the following Warranty Policy carefully.
Australia and New Zealand Limit Warranty
This warranty covers defects in materials and workmanship of products manufactured, sold or certified by Mercusys which were purchased and used in Australia or New Zealand.
The benefits provided under this Limited Warranty are in addition to other rights and remedies provided under Australian and New Zealand consumer law.
Conditions that disqualify products from the limited warranty include, but are not limited to:
- any defects or damage caused by abnormal use, including but not limited to:
- any defects or damage caused by accidents, improper installation or maintenance, misuse (including failure to follow product documentation), neglect, disassembly, alterations to the hardware or supporting setting files, servicing, repairs or maintenance by non-authorised Mercusys technicians, and external causes such as, but not limited to, natural disaster (e.g. lightning, flood, earthquake, etc.), water damage, extreme thermal or environmental conditions;
- any defects or damage caused by software, virus or improper use of self-made, non-public or third party/open source software;
- any unauthorised obliteration or tearing up of the product barcode; or
- any product with obvious hard object damage, fissure, broken legs, exposed core, severe deformation, or any other similar damage;
- any defects or damage caused by normal wear or tear which does not impact the normal use of the product by a normal standard;
- any defects caused by transportation or loading during returning voyage;
- any defects you knew of or were made aware of before you bought the product; or
- any other defects that are not caused by workmanship or product quality.
Goods presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type rather than being repaired. Refurbished parts may be used to repair the goods.
The warranty lasts for two years from the date of purchase of the product(s). This warranty extends to you if you are the end-user purchaser with the original purchase receipt.
External power supplies, modules and other accessories for one year from the date of purchase of the product(s).
Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under Australian and New Zealand Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
Mercusys has authorised TP-Link Australia as a distributor in Australia and New Zealand. During the Limited Warranty period, TP-Link Australia will provide a repair, or a replacement at its discretion for Mercusys products that manifest defects in material or workmanship. To request warranty service within Australia and New Zealand, you need to make a phone call to the Support Hotline to apply for a case number first; you can then return the faulty product to the reseller from which you purchased it, to receive a free replacement by providing the case number applied for on the phone.
You will be responsible for shipping charges, insurance, and other transportation-related expenses incurred in claiming the warranty from Mercusys.
If you return out-of-warranty products or products under warranty that are determined not to conform to this warranty, you will be responsible for all return shipping and other transportation-related expenses.
