Order Processing/ Verification procedures
All orders are processed upon receipt. All items which are in stock normally ship within 2-3 business days from when the order has been processed. Our website may not reflect real-time inventory, so not all “available” products are on hand for immediate rush delivery. Customers placing overnight and rush delivery orders should contact our sales department in order to confirm that we are able to meet your time constraints. Due to verification processes we are required to ship to the address where you receive your monthly credit card statements. If the address to which your order is being shipped differs from your billing address (the address to which your monthly credit card statements are sent), please use the toll free number on the front or back of you card to contact your credit card company and create an “alternate shipping address”, which is simply a note on your account authorizing purchases that are delivered to a destination other than your billing address. Failure to do so may considerably delay the processing of your order. Back To Top
Acceptable payment methods are: All major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Diners Club), C.O.D. (we may require a credit card deposit), Government and Institutional purchase orders, money orders, certified check, personal check, bank checks and wire transfer.

To pay by check, Money order, wire transfer, C.O.D., or purchase order please contact our sales department at 1-888-202-1573 for further details.
Orders placed with an international credit card or orders placed with a U.S. credit card being shipped abroad may not be accepted due to verification issues.
In the event that we cannot verify your billing information we may require you to wire transfer payment prior to us shipping the products. At times we may request a fax with a copy of your drivers’ license and front and back of the credit card being used. Back To Top

Warranty coverage/ Repairs
All items sold by Solar Blvd are warranted solely by the manufacturer unless otherwise stated. Solar Blvd is not responsible for items serviced by the manufacturer. Solar Blvd also carries imported/Grey Market products which are not covered by the original manufacturer’s warranty. On imported items, Solar Blvd provides a warranty identical to the provisions and limitations of the manufacturer’s warranty up to a maximum of 1 year parts and 90 days labor. Your warranty cards/ and or sales slip must accompany all items.
Typically there are relatively few differences between U.S. and Grey Market goods. The most noticeable difference is price and warranty service. Generally, import products are less expensive. The U.S. warranted item’s price covers the American importer’s operating expenses, including warranty service, their sales staff, websites, advertising, and all their overhead expenses. The price of the import products covers none of this since the Import product was brought into the U.S.A. by someone other than the manufacturer’s licensed importer. With some products there are differences. For example, Canon Uses the name PowerShot in the U.S.A. for their digital camera’s but uses the name IXUS/IXY elsewhere however the product itself is identical. It’s also important to know that during the manufacturing and assembly process there’s no distinction. U.S.A. and import items are all made simultaneously from the same raw materials and components, and are assembled by the same workers on the same assembly line. The U.S./Import distinction isn’t even applied until the assembly process is completed. There is no quality or performance difference whatsoever. At times; kit contents on U.S./Imported items may also vary. Please check the “item includes” tab on the product page you are purchasing to see what type of warranty and what the kit contents include for the product you are purchasing. On imported items, it will state that “item comes with a one year Solar Blvd warranty”. In addition to possible differences in warranty, kit contents, and item name, import items are not eligible for USA manufacturers’ rebates. For additional information or if you have any questions, please contact our sales department at 1-800-202-1573. Back To Top
Damaged/ Lost/Missing Package
In the event that a package shows delivered and you have not received your package, please contact customer service so that a tracer investigation can be initiated immediately. Once a tracer investigation has been initiated it may take up to 10 business days to complete. In the event that your product is delivered and damaged in transit, make sure to keep the original shipping box so it can be inspected at a later time. Damaged or misplaced items that were shipped via a freight company may take between 30-60 days for claim processing. Prior to shipping; all packages are thoroughly inspected to make sure all contents are included in the box. If you are missing any items from your package it must be reported to Solar Blvd within 2 business days so an investigation can be initiated. Failure to report a missing item within 2 business days will severely hinder any possible investigation.
All rebates are handled directly with the manufacturer unless clearly stated otherwise. We are not responsible under any circumstances for refused or declined rebates. Products offering mail in rebates are non returnable to Solar Blvd once the rebates have been filed for. Be sure the product is working and you intend to keep the product before filing for rebates. Products missing UPC codes from the box are non returnable and will be rejected or subject to restocking fees. Imported products do not qualify for rebates. If you have any questions regarding rebates please contact customer service department before removing the UPC code. Back To Top
Our commitment and goal to our customers is to strive to offer the best possible prices on all of our products. We have an entire purchasing department dedicated to finding the best possible deals for our valued client base. Consequently, due to the nature of the electronics industry the prices on our website fluctuate daily and reflect the lowest price we can possibly offer at that time. If the price on an item goes up after you made your purchase we will honor the lower price that you had initially purchased it at. Subsequently, if the price on an item goes down after you purchased it, we can only offer you the lower price it has been changed to if your package has not yet shipped. Once your package has already shipped, we can no longer offer any price protection. Back To Top
