GENERAL

Back to top

Is it safe to order on your site?

Yes! Oui. Si. Ja. Kyllä! We’re owned by Elisa, the largest telecommunications company in Finland. We also use an international standard in payment protection, Braintree and 3D Security, so you’re safe with us.

We take online security extremely seriously and have taken rigorous precautions to make sure that your information is processed with confidentiality and accuracy. Read more about our privacy policy.

We want to ensure your confidence when buying from shop.epictv.com and to get the most security we suggest the following techie precautions:

Install Security Software

Most threats come from malicious software or viruses so you need to ensure they are kept out like the cold. Make sure your computer is installed with antivirus and anti-spyware software and a firewall. Mmmm, fire.

Get Updates

Security Software manufacturers constantly respond to new threats. They do so with updates that iron out any bugs – so make sure and update regularly to keep your security software most effective.

Password Protection

Use strong and smart passwords for log in. “Password” is not a great choice. Use upper and lower case characters (PaSsWoRd?), add numbers (P455w0Rd?) and special characters to your password. This will make it more difficult for others to guess. Regularly change your password and remember – always log out at the end of a session.

Check For The Padlock Icon

It will appear in your internet browser when you start the secure payment process on our site. No padlock? No go.

Don’t Share Personal Information

EpicTV will never e-mail or call you to ask you to disclose or verify your EpicTV.com password, credit card or bank account number. We’re too busy! If you are contacted or receive an unsolicited email asking you for any of this information, disregard the request and report the incident to our Customer Service team. They’ll handle it…

How can I contact shop.epictv.com?

PRICE & PAYMENT

Back to top

What is your pricing policy?

Glad you asked! For orders placed in the EU, prices include VAT (Value Added Tax)* charged at the rate appropriate to the destination country of the order.

VAT does not apply to orders that are shipped outside the EU or to tax-free areas such as the Channel Islands. These areas will be priced and billed with VAT deducted.

Please note that local tax and customs duty may apply. For full details please consult your local customs office. If you select a currency or a delivery country outside the EU, prices will be displayed VAT-free. You can find out how much import duties are with this great free calculator here.

Whilst we do our best to ensure prices are up to date and correct, errors may occur and in this case we'll contact you before your order is shipped. (Still glad you asked?!)

What payment methods can I use at EpicTV Shop?

You can pay by either credit or debit card, Paypal, or via bank transfer. We use Braintree, a Paypal Company and international payment platform used to process payments by both card and Paypal, so your information is completely safe with us.

If you choose to pay via Bank transfer by selecting the payment option “IBAN Payment” during the checkout, you will then receive our bank account details in your order confirmation email. Please note that we must receive the payment to our bank account within 10 banking days after the purchase. Otherwise we will have to cancel your order. Important: To avoid any delay in the management of your order, please use your order number from your confirmation email as reference for your bank transfer.

Your bank may charge a transfer fee for this option. For international transfers, you are always charged a ‘cross border transfer’ fee on top of the "purchase price". Your bank will be able to provide you with more information about this. If we do not receive the full amount of your purchase, your order issuance will be delayed. Once the full amount has been received, your order will be processed. Depending on your bank the transfer could take between 5 to 10 working days before we are actually able to see your payment.

What currency can I use to pay for my order?

We accept €, £, $, CHF, NOK and SEK. Just select your currency of choice below the "My account" button in the top-right corner of our site and shazam!

However, please note we are unable to accept payments in USD for orders outside the USA. If you'd like to pay in USD please make sure you are a US customer and that you provide us with a delivery address in the United States.

Do you charge sales tax on your orders?

Taxes (VAT) are included for orders delivered to countries inside the EU.

For the USA, non-EU countries in Europe, and other international deliveries the VAT is either omitted or automatically subtracted during the checkout depending on the shipping country. But there will be Customs clearance fees and import duties depending on the country and the value of the order. Customs clearance fees are charged by the Customs or Colissimo for processing the importation of your order. Please see our Shipping Fees section for more details for deliveries to the USA and non-EU countries. Or contact us on the LiveChat for other countries.

Do you price match?

You bet we do. See our Price Match Guarantee page, talk to us on LiveChat or visit our Contact us page to find out more.

My PayPal orders don't show on my account, what do I do?

Bummer! Please talk to us on LiveChat or visit our Contact us page so we can help with this issue.

Why has PayPal charged me more than what you stated?

We accept PayPal payments in GBP Sterling, Euro, US Dollar, Norwegian Krone, Swedish Krona and Swiss Francs. For other countries and currencies we show exchange rates based on the Bank of England rate. If you purchase through PayPal they'll apply their own exchange rates and you may see a slight difference in the amount you pay. PayPal exchange rates are fully explained in their terms and conditions.

My gift voucher / coupon code is not working. What do I do?

Oh snap! That’s not normal. Please talk to us on LiveChat or see our Contact Us page for other ways to get in touch with us so that we can help fix the problem.

What is your International Shipping Policy?

EpicTV.com uses Colissimo to ship internationally. Why? Colissimo is safe, your package is insured against theft and loss, and you get tracking information that tells you where your package is and when it will arrive. This way you’re not left wondering when the unreachable and mysterious shipping gods will deliver your goods. For more information on shipping and delivery please visit our Shipping Page.

Why do my purchases sometimes arrive in boxes, sometimes in Jiffys and sometimes in bags?

We always try to pack orders in the best fitting packaging possible. Depending on the item(s) this may mean one of our Jiffy bags, one of our boxes or one of our plastic bags. We do this for three reasons:

  1. The best-fit packaging is usually the most cost-effective and helps us keep our packaging and our courier costs down so we can continue to provide you with the most competitive prices around.
  2. With smaller packages there is a better chance that your order will fit through your letter box, avoiding delayed deliveries and repeated delivery attempts.
  3. Smaller and more compact parcels take up less space on planes, trains and automobiles so it’s better for the environment. Win-win!

Can I change my delivery address after my order has gone through?

We will send you an email when your order has been dispatched. If you'd like to change your delivery address before you receive this email, get in touch with us at support@epictv.com.

If your order has already been dispatched and you'd like to change the delivery address, it's best to contact Colissimo directly. You will need your Colissimo tracking number, which can be found in your dispatch email (check your spam folder if you can't find it).

Check Colissimo Contact page.

I haven't received my order and it's after the scheduled delivery date, what should I do?

First check the status of your delivery on the Colissimo website, as it might just be delayed due to unforeseen reasons. Please note that your Colissimo tracking number can be found in your dispatch confirmation email (check your spam folder if you can't find it):.

WARRANTY

Back to top

How do I know if my product has a warranty?

If your new item has a warranty, basic information can usually be found on the tags or somewhere in the original packaging. However, it’s also important to check the manufacturer’s website for the full details.

How long do warranties last for?

Depending on the manufacturer, warranties can last any time from a few weeks to the lifetime of the product. When you buy a product, make sure you check the individual warranty length, and keep your order confirmation so you know when it’s valid from.

What does a warranty cover?

A warranty covers any unexpected damage or fault that can be put down to manufacturing mistakes, or don’t meet the brand’s advertised standards. This can include anything from seams coming apart to malfunctions in technical equipment.

Does my warranty cover accidental damage?

Warranties do not normally cover accidental damage, loss or damage due to improper care. For more details on this issue view our warranty page, and if you’re still not sure, don’t hesitate to speak to us on LiveChat or check out our Contact Us page. It’s also a good idea to check the manufacturer’s website for their warranty terms and conditions.

How do I start the warranty process?

Send an email to support@epictv.com explaining what the problem is (don’t forget to include some pictures) and we will communicate with the manufacturer on your behalf to verify whether or not your item is valid for warranty. The manufacturer always has the final decision. If your item is approved for warranty, fill out a warranty form and send it back to us so we can provide you with a replacement or refund. Have a look at our warranty terms and conditions for more details.

Is there anything I need to provide?

To start the warranty process, you will always need to provide proof of purchase. This can be your order number or confirmation email. You may also be required to send photos or videos of your faulty item.

How long does it take to warranty an item?

We will sort your warranty as fast as possible, but the whole process can sometimes take around six to eight weeks.

For more information, have a look at our warranty page, and if you have any questions speak to us on LiveChat or check out our Contact Us page
