How does the 12-Month Warranty work?
All devices in our Certified Phones Program have been professionally inspected and certified by our partners and come with a 12-Month warranty that covers all product defects.
The 12-Month warranty covers all product defects, both hardware and software for the first 30 days. For the next 11 months, the warranty would cover all defects except any consumable parts (e.g. batteries) or software, even if packaged, embedded in, or sold with the phone.
The 12-Month warranty does not cover damage caused by the customer or any other persons or impact. This includes (and is not exhaustive of) damage caused by third party products, force, misuse, abuse, accident, water, or any external factors and ordinary wear and tear such as corrosion, rust or stains, scratches, dents on the casing or paintwork. Certified devices may come with an additional manufacturer warranty.
If the item cannot be repaired or replaced with the same model within the first 30-day warranty period, you can exchange for an electronic device of the same or lower value or top up the difference for a device of a higher value with our partner. If the same model is not available, you can get a refund from our partner.
Carousell offers this warranty only for orders transacted on Carousell with Carousell Protection. To claim a warranty, you need to chat with the seller and go down to their shop within the 12-Month Warranty period. Learn more about warranty and return.
How does the 7-Day Return work?
To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition and packaging as you received it. This is only applicable if you have received an item not as described and/ or damaged.
If you change your mind, you can exchange for a mobile phone of the same or lower value or top up the difference for a device of a higher value. No cash refund will be provided. If it is a functionality issue, it’ll be covered by the 12-Month Warranty.
Carousell offers this return/ exchange only for orders transacted on Carousell with Carousell Protection. If for any other reason you are not satisfied with your device, you can “raise an issue” in the chat with your seller to freeze the payment, chat with the seller, and go down to their shop within the 7-Day Return period. If your return is accepted by the seller, you would get a refund. Learn more about warranty and return.
What is the Carousell Warranty Fee for Certified phones?
Certified phones give you full confidence when you buy second-hand. All phones in this program have undergone a 5-step certification to provide you with trusted quality phones, guaranteed to be in full working condition. Still, it’s good to know that when you purchase a Certified phone, the product comes with a comprehensive 12 months warranty coverage to give you peace of mind.
To be able to provide that, we charge a small warranty fee to buyers at 2.5% of the item and delivery price. On the rare occasion that something happens, rest assured we'll take care of it.
We accept DBS PayLah!, Singapore, and international Visa/Master/American Express debit and credit cards. The Carousell Warranty fee is made visible on the payment summary page before you make your purchase.
