Pricing Policy

Techbuy.com.au pricing reflects the competitive nature of the I.T. industry and therefore is carefully monitored by our sales team to provide our customers with the latest, competitive prices. All of our prices are in Australian dollars (AUD) and include GST (Goods and services tax) as of 1st July 2000. Product prices are dynamically updated by our in house purchasing system when price changes are received from our suppliers.

For any products marked as 'Pre-Order', 'Order-In' or out of stock, prices may change between when you place your order and when the actual product becomes available. Techbuy will try to absorb any price differences when possible, but if this is not economically possible will have to pass the price variation on.

Sales, Warranty & Returns Policy

General Policy

Our sales, returns and warranty policy is listed below. Please read this carefully before purchasing from Techbuy.

  • All products sold are "fit for purpose", however, Techbuy does not warrant or guarantee that any product sold is compatible with any equipment, hardware or software already installed or in use by the customer. This does not necessarily mean that it is fit for the purpose you want it for, it means it will do the job it was designed for.

Consumer Guarantees, Warranties, & Refunds

  • The Australian Consumer Law protects consumers by giving them certain guaranteed rights when they buy goods and services. For example, the Law requires that goods must be free of defects, and do what they are meant to do. Services must be carried out with care and skill. These rights, which the Law says automatically apply whenever goods or services are supplied to a consumer, are called ‘Consumer Guarantees’.
  • Under the Law, these Consumer Guarantees cannot be excluded. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and 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.
  • Consumer Guarantees have no set time limit but generally last for an amount of time that is reasonable to expect given factors including the cost and quality of the product or any representations made.
  • Many manufacturers have dedicated support centres designed specifically to deal with issues in relation to their products and may even provide in home support and advanced trouble shooting. In many circumstances the manufacturer may therefore be able to provide a quicker assessment of, and remedy for, any issue with your product, even if the manufacturer’s warranty has expired. You may therefore prefer to contact the manufacturer rather than us, although you are not obliged to do this and, if at any time you are not satisfied with the manufacturer’s remedy in relation to your legal rights, you can contact us for assistance.
  • Unless otherwise specified Techbuy is normally your first point of contact for warranty related issues.
