Return/Refund Policies
No returns after 10 days from ORDER DATE. 20% Minimum restocking fee is applicable on all returns or exchanges.
All satellite dishes purchased through this site are nonrefundable. We will only replace defective parts. The reason for this is we only want to retail "new" product to our customers and we do not want any opened item stock. There will be no refunds on satellite dishes. If the dish is sent back to our warehouse, it will be considered abandoned property. We do not accept these items back and will not pay for return shipping on them being shipped back. If you request an RMA on a package, the RMA is only valid for the package equipment and not the Satellite dishes. Please be advised that we will not tolerate charge-backs on items that are not returned to our warehouse. Dishes will not be accepted back, but this does not mean that the rest of the package should not be returned if we have provided an RMA to you.

If you cancel an order before it is shipped, you will be charged an unrecoverable merchant fee for the cancellation. Normally this is a 4% nonrefundable credit card fee, plus $5.00 refund transaction fee. This can change based on customer's original order. These merchant fees are not refunded to our company by the credit card processor under your cancellation and Satmaniacs will not be responsible for these fees should you change your mind. These fees are applicable to products that have been placed as "Prepay Only" or "Backordered" should you change your mind on the order. You will see a detailed account of these refund fees on your refund receipt sent to you by the credit card processor to your e-mail address. Should you not receive this receipt you may submit a request that this information to be resent.
