Standard Return Policy Overview

You may return merchandise purchased from Showtime Electronics for a refund or a replacement, provided that the procedures and requirements are followed. All returns require a return merchandise authorization (RMA) number. An RMA number must be issued within 30 calendar days after the date of purchase. An RMA number is valid for 14 calendar days after it is issued. Once you log in to your user account, you will be able to Request and RMA. In addition, you can also request an RMA at the bottom of our homepage. If you have any issues, please email us at


A processing fee of 10 percent will apply to the value of merchandise returned for a refund. Refunds are applied to the payment method used at the time of purchase 2-3 business days after our receipt of the returned merchandise. We will only refund the value of the merchandise returned, not the shipping cost. On items with free shipping returned for a refund, the original shipping cost that we paid the shipping courier will be deducted from your refund.


If you purchased a product that you wish to exchange for an alternate item, please contact us to obtain an RMA for your merchandise first. Once we receive and inspect your merchandise, we will issue a store credit for the amount of your order for you to use on another item. Please note that our outgoing shipping costs for your item will not be included in your store credit, however, we will ship your new item for FREE.

Defective Merchandise

Merchandise that is discovered to be defective upon receipt will be replaced. You may also return defective merchandise for a refund; however, a 10 percent processing fee will apply. The processing fee will only apply if you choose to return the merchandise for a refund. No fee will be assessed if we are permitted to resolve the issue by replacing your defective merchandise.

Damaged Merchandise

All packages are inspected for damage prior to leaving our warehouse. If your merchandise is damaged during shipment by the shipping courier, please contact us immediately as we must be informed within 10 calendar days from the date of receipt for all damage/shipping related claims. Damaged merchandise can be replaced with the same model only. You may also return damaged merchandise for a refund; however, a 10 percent processing fee will apply. The processing fee will only apply if you choose to return the merchandise for a refund. No fee will be assessed if we are permitted to resolve the issue by replacing your damaged merchandise. Please note, in most cases, we will need to file a damage claim with the shipping company (Fedex, UPS, USPS, etc.) before we can proceed with an exchange or refund.

Return Shipping

Return shipping cost (the cost to send merchandise back to our store) is the sole responsibility of the customer, unless otherwise noted with your RMA.

Replacement Terms

We will send a product replacement for an authorized return following the completion of receiving and inspection at our facility. The replacement will ship within 2-3 business days following our receipt of your return. We do not send advance replacements or replacements before we receive and inspect the returned merchandise.
