Although we will do our very best, unfortunately we cannot guarantee that your order will arrive within the stated time as we are in the hands of third parties who may encounter difficulties and cannot guarantee a service.

When making a purchase the person puts the Gift Card’s unique code at the checkout stage of the purchase process. The unique code can be found on the email that they receive confirming your gift to them
The gift card can only be redeemed for K-pay wearables at k-pay.com.
A Gift Card can be used to purchase a wearable in the same currency that the Gift Card is purchased in.

QUALITY, CARE AND GUARANTEE
At K-pay we are committed to make sure our customers have a great experience and guarantee against defects in materials and workmanship. If you believe there is a defect in the materials and workmanship with your K-pay wearable, we suggest that you return the item to the place of purchase for a resolution (either repair or replace the item). For your own security, we would like to point out that defective wearables should be returned by a ‘signed for’ postal service. We are unable to assume liability for damage, loss or theft during transport.
K-pay wearables are made from multiple components including metals, ceramic, resin, crystals and leather to name a few. To ensure your wearable stays looking its best, we recommend the following:
– the payment chip that is inserted into the K-pay wearable is water resistant and has an Ingress Protection standard of IPx7, meaning it is protected from accidental submersion in 1 meter (3.3 feet) of water for up to 30 minutes. A finished K-pay wearable has an equivalent IP57 rating, meaning in addition to the previously mentioned water resistance, they are also dust resistant to not interfere with the working of the wearable. Please note that whilst all K-pay wearables are water resistant we do not recommend the leather straps are immersed in water;
– salt water will damage the wearable as will certain chemicals that are found in environments like hot tubs and certain filtration systems;
– apply perfume and cosmetics prior to putting on your wearable;
– avoid contact with household cleaning products and chemicals including bleach, as they may cause silver to stain and can discolour other elements;
– remove the wearable where it is likely to be damaged, such as manual activities i.e. gardening and DIY;
– to clean each wearable wipe with a soft cloth;
– when storing, for protection and to avoid scratching, it is advisable to wrap wearable separately in a soft cloth, acid-free tissue or plastic bag and keep in a clean, dry location.
The K-pay Guarantee protects you when you purchase a genuine K-pay product. Our guarantee covers the condition of your wearable, and should you be unsatisfied once you receive your order, contact our team at [email protected] and they will look into the issue and determine if you are eligible for a refund. We will respond to your email within 48 hours on business days (Monday to Friday).
Every K-pay wearable is guaranteed for 12 months, (with the exception of the leather strap which is guaranteed for 6 months) from the original date of purchase, (under normal conditions of wear and tear). Please retain your receipt or pass it on to the gift recipient as the original proof of purchase is the warranty. If a receipt is not available a credit card or bank statement will suffice. This does not affect your statutory rights.
The warranty offered on K-pay wearables does not affect your legal rights and is provided in addition to those rights.
