The Bad

  • Strict Return Policy
  • Lengthy Return Policy

Strict Return Policy

PrimeBuy has a fairly strict return policy. The company suggests that customers review the compatibility and technical information before placing any orders since PrimeBuy is not liable if the wrong product is ordered. 

Customers should keep in mind that not every product on PrimeBuy is eligible for a refund. The following products cannot be returned:

  • Custom made or special order items
  • Items in which there is wear and tear, damage or visible usage
  • If there is no original packaging and/or is missing parts or accessories
  • Products purchased during closeout sales.
  • Products specially marked "Non-Returnable" on the product listing page

Customers can only request a refund within 14 days from the date the order was received. All requests will be reviewed (and if approved) PrimeBuy will send specific return instructions. Customers should not ship an item back without getting approval from PrimeBuy. 

Lengthy Return Process

As mentioned, refund requests are only available 14 days from the date the order is received. To get an RMA number, clients need to email the following information to PrimeBuy's return email:

  • PrimeBuy Sales Order Number
  • Manufacturer's part number
  • Product serial number
  • Number of items to return
  • Your email address and contact phone number
  • Reason for your return
  • Return type: refund or exchange

Upon receiving approval, customers will then have to pack the items in their original packaging or include the original packaging in another box. All items must be unassembled and re-packaged in the way they were received. PrimeBuy also demands that all products being returned be in a new, resellable condition, with the original software, components, cables, documentation, manuals, and accessories. 

It is important to pay attention to the return shipping instructions, as products are not returned to the PrimeBuy address. Additionally, PrimeBuy is not responsible for any additional costs or fees associated with shipping. 

All returns need to be sent "pre-paid" and fully insured for the invoice amount against damage or loss. PrimeBuy also requires that packages be returned via UPS, FedEx, or DHL carrier with signature confirmation, tracking, and insurance. Customers will need to email this information to PrimeBuy with the tracking number. 

Once PrimeBuy gets the return, all products are inspected and tested to see if they are eligible for a return. This process may take up to 1–2 weeks. 

If the item is all good, there is an additional restocking fee of up to 30 percent.


The Bottom Line

PrimeBuy is a great resource for companies looking to purchase high-quality industrial products. There is a range of items available that are useful for those in the technological, industrial, laboratory, safety, automotive, utility, chemical, HVAC, and retail industries. 

The site boasts having competitive prices and additional discounts for customers in the educational, government, and military agencies. However, consumers need to be aware of PrimeBuy's return policy. Returning a product can be a lengthy process, and buyers will have to juggle a number of terms and conditions.

Paid for an order in October of this year. The item was to be available by December 1st. I was urged on to complete the order now to be the 1st in line when available. Called the company to inquire about my order a few days ago. They said they would look into it and expedite the process. Just received an email today that my order was cancelled. Called again, and was told that they could not get a definitive answer from the company when my order would be available so they cancelled it. Interestingly enough they currently have it on their website selling for $35 more. I also called other suppliers and was told the manufacturer would definitely have the product to ship direct in two weeks. So, after three months, without any communication on their part they simply cancelled our particular order. The item is listed on their site for $35 more and other suppliers have told me product availability in two weeks. My suggestion is to stay away from this company for obvious reasons.

For several years now I've been buying gifts for my husband here. I like that if I have questions, for example between two similar products, they always help me understand the difference. In short, it's nice to come back here again and again.

Ordered a purifier last year, had an unexpected rainwater incident recently, so ordered the same purifier again. Works great, the delivery went well, the product is in good working order!
