General FAQs About New US Warehouse

Why are products priced differently on the U.S. and Canadian sites?

Why are some products listed on the Canadian site not available on the U.S. site?

How long will it take to process my order?

Orders will be processed on a first come, first serve basis. We will make every effort to make sure orders are processed as soon as possible, and no unnecessary delays occur in processing an order. In most cases orders are processed immediately, often shipping the same day for in-stock items.

During busy periods, delays may occur. All orders will be processed no later than 2 business days upon receipt, provided the items are in stock and there are no problems with the payment verification. Items are allocated to your order when your order is being processed and after your payment has been verified, so on rare occasions stock may change by the time an order is being processed.

Once an order request has been received by us, you will receive periodic e-mails from us regarding the processing of your order. Within 24 hours of your order being shipped, you will receive an e-mail that contains the carrier tracking number for your order.

How do I know if a product is in stock?

Each product page at NCIX indicates the Availability of an item below the price.

IN STOCK - This item is in stock at our warehouse and is shipped as soon as possible. It will usually ship in 1 to 2 business days, but every effort will be made to ship the same day an order is processed.

OUT OF STOCK - This item is currently not available but often can be ordered. Shipping date is unknown for these items, but expect 2 to 8 weeks for delivery.

NOT AVAILABLE - This item is not available. You can contact us if you would like us to further investigate a product's availability.

While every effort is made to insure that availability and stock status is accurate, we cannot be responsible for inaccuracies published on the web site as they are dependant on supplier accuracy and information.

I just placed an order for an item that is out of stock. When will I be charged for it?

You will be charged for a backordered item upon order processing. After your order for an out of stock product is submitted, we will notify you of its anticipated delivery date. Any in stock products from your order will be shipped right away. For items that are backordered, you will receive periodic reminders of back ordered items and you will be given an opportunity to cancel any outstanding back orders with us.

In the event the product is unavailable, or if you wish to cancel the back ordered item before it is shipped, you will be issued a refund using the same method of payment you used to place the order, or a credit note. NCIX will make every attempt to promptly issue refunds, but during busy periods, allow up to 2 to 4 business days for refunds to be processed.

How long does it take for back ordered items to get sent?

Items that are unavailable will be placed on back order, and the remainder of your order will be shipped. Please check our web site for the back ordered item's estimated time of arrival. Please note that these dates are estimates and not guaranteed to arrive on that date.

For items that are backordered, you will receive periodic reminders of back ordered items and you will be given an opportunity to cancel any outstanding back orders with us.

Where possible, we will make every effort to alert customers of potential delays, or possible substitutions to the originally ordered item (such as a video card or RAM with similar specifications).

What warranty do I get with products I've bought?

NCIX warrants product(s) to be in good working condition and free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of one (1) year for OEM packages, and for thirty (30) days for RETAIL packages, from the original Invoice date unless otherwise restricted below or by the manufacturer's own warranty policy.

After that period, items are often covered by a manufacturer's warranty, but will vary depending on the product in question. Please refer to the manufacturer's web site for details.

Note: Motherboards are regarded as Retail products by NCIX and we will help to facilitate in any repair or replacement of defective motherboards for 30 days. After the initial 30 days from purchase, all motherboard warranty repairs or replacements are handled by the manufacturer.

ALL OEM CPU/processor products are warranted for seven (7) days from the original invoice date, unless the CPU is purchased as part of a computer system, or if you are a VIP Member or Premium Partner member.

If your product is not functioning properly upon arrival (DOA items), please send a message (but not later than 25 days from purchase for DOA items) to Technical Support for troubleshooting or request a RMA through an Online RMA. In most instances, our representatives can assist you in diagnosing and resolving your product problems. In the case of a defective product, NCIX will replace the product with an exchange of the same item, subject to in-stock availability.

To return a product you will require an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) from us, and unless you are a VIP, you will have to pay for shipping charges in returning the product to us. Repaired RMA items will be shipped back to you free.

Most of our major manufacturers' policies require that you contact them directly for assistance regarding their products. These manufacturers will repair, return or replace them in accordance with their own policies. Please contact the respective manufacturer for additional details.

Physical damage to any product will void the product's warranty. Modifying a product in a permanent way is considered physical damage. NCIX cannot honor warranty for CPU's that have bent pins, cracked or chipped cores, burnt or otherwise sustained any other type of physical damage. Physical damage voids any warranty previously implied for any product.

You should have received an email about what items are shipped so please verify that you are in fact missing an item first. If you are missing an item, we apologize. Please contact our Customer Care department immediately so we can help you locate your product.

Why does NCIX ship multiple packages for one order?

Your order may be shipped separately if you have several items due to a few contingencies such as weight, size, and stock concerns. Also, we have multiple warehouse locations and your items may be shipped from different warehouses depending on stock levels.

Does NCIX match competitors' pricing?

Yes, conditions may apply.

Why are products priced differently on the U.S. and Canadian sites?

The floating exchange rate between CAD and USD plays a large role. However, bigger price differences could be due to other circumstances. Suppliers and manufacturers may charge a different MSRP in Canada than the U.S. Sometimes, we are required to buy from certain U.S. suppliers in order to sell the product in the U.S. and that may result in a higher cost.

Why are some products listed on the Canadian site not available on the U.S. site?

Products and promotions on the Canadian/U.S. site are independent from one another. Also, some Canadian products are only licensed for sale in Canada.

VPN & Overseas Orders

If you are using a VPN (virtual private network) or a proxy, please turn this off before ordering otherwise this may cause additional delays for the verification of your order.
