Tracking Your Order

A tracking number will be provided to you after your order has shipped.

Refunds On Late Deliveries

Normally, UPS will offer a service guarantee refund when their deliveries arrive late. However, for companies that apply for shipping discounts, this refund does not apply. Phidgets Education has applied for such discounts in order to keep shipping costs down and regrettably cannot offer compensation for late shipments.

Damaged or Lost Shipment

Shipping on our UPS account - Report all damaged or lost shipments to and include your order number. According to UPS, in order to be considered lost, a package must be undelivered 24 hours after the expected delivery date and time. Before contacting us, check your shipment status at

Damaged or lost items will be replaced at no charge (including shipping costs).

Shipping on your UPS account - You must notify your local UPS office. If they confirm that they have lost your shipment, you must repurchase the lost or damaged products from Phidgets and file a claim with your local UPS in order to get reimbursed.

Refused/Missed Delivery

If, when the package arrives there is no one to accept delivery UPS will redeliver two more times. This is standard UPS protocol. If delivery fails they will keep the package for five days and then return it to us. We will then refund you the cost you paid minus the cost of shipping (both directions) and a flat $50 charge to a maximum of the total cost of the package. This applies to packages which failed delivery due to no one being present as well as packages which were refused delivery by a person at the delivery location.

Product Returns

All Returns Must Be Authorized by Phidgets Education

Before returning a package contact us and ask for a Return Merchandise Authorization or RMA number. Once you have received it, put the RMA number on the outside of the packaging as well as the packing slip so that it is possible for us to track what the package is supposed to be. Any merchandise returned without an RMA number clearly visible on the packaging will be charged an administrative fee of $25.00 or the value of the returned product, whichever is less if we are able to determine what it is. In the event we are unable to determine what the package is, it will be refused and returned to the sender.

Unopened Product

Phidgets Education will take back any unopened product for a period of 30 days from the date of purchase. Call or e-mail us for an RMA number and ship the product back to us prepaid and we will refund your credit card as soon as we receive and inspect the returned goods.

Products that are returned after 30 days are subject to a re-stocking charge of 25% of the package's value (minimum $5.00) to a maximum of $500.

We do not accept returns after 90 days.

Cut to Length

Unfortunately we cannot accept returns on any items which are cut to custom lengths. This includes: cable, wire, roller chain, linear shaft, rotary shaft, and t-slot extrusions.
