Returns and RefundsUpdated 6 months ago


Customers are welcome to return any purchase to us within 30 days of purchase and will be offered a refund to the original payment method, or should they prefer, we can offer a credit note or exchange.

For goods to qualify for a refund within 30 days of purchase, it must meet the following requirements:

  • The items must be returned as sold. Products must be in their original (undamaged) packaging, including any documentation and with any tamper-proof seals intact.
  • The product must be accompanied by the receipt.

If an item has been used or is otherwise in unsaleable condition (damaged or soiled packaging, parts missing) DID reserves the right to refuse a return under this policy.

If a promotional item was included in the original sale, these need to be returned also to avail of the refund. If they are no longer available, their equivalent non-discounted value will be deducted from the refund amount.



We are unable to offer a refund or exchange under this policy on any of the following items:

  • Installed kitchen appliances
  • Special order items
  • DID Vouchers
  • Personal or Hygiene products (e.g., electric blankets, electric toothbrush, etc)
  • Headphones
  • Technology products where the tamper-proof seal has been broken such as Software, laptops, tablets, wearables, mobile phones, and any other device that captures personal data.
  • We do not offer refunds or exchanges on ex-display items.



  • Where an item is returned for a refund, the refund will be made to the original form of payment.
  • Where the original form of payment was a credit or debit card, the same card must be physically present for the refund to be processed.
  • Where the original form of payment was made by cheque or bank draft, a cheque to the value of the original payment will be issued within 10 working days and posted out.
  • Where the original payment was made using a DID voucher or credit note, a new voucher/credit note will be issued for the value of the original payment.
  • If the original form of payment is no longer available (such as a One4All debit card that was discarded after use), a DID voucher will be provided using refund.
  • The maximum cash refund we can reimburse in-store is €300. For refunds exceeding this amount, a cheque to the value of the original payment will be issued within 10 working days and posted.


This policy does not affect your legal rights.




Our products are intended for domestic use only. Please note that the use of these appliances in a commercial environment may void your manufacturer's warranty and any extended warranty purchased. Commercial environments include but are not limited to staff rooms, commercial kitchens, and canteens.

Please ask a member of our sales team if you have a query relating to your purchase.



If any goods delivered to you are damaged, this must be notified to our Customer Support Team within 3 days of the delivery on 01 625 0250 or email [email protected]. Damaged goods must not be used and must be returned in the condition that they were received, with all original packaging, documentation and accessories included.



If any goods you received develop a fault, please contact our bring the item to your nearest DID store, or contact our Customer Support Team on 01 625 0250, or email [email protected]. The item(s) will then be returned to the manufacturer to be assessed and repaired as appropriate. Where the item is a large home appliance, a service call will be scheduled with a repair agent who will assess and/or repair the item in your home. Please do not disconnect and return installed items for repair. For the fault to be established accurately, they need to be assessed as installed.

You will be provided with an indicative timeframe of when your item will be repaired. However, repair times may vary due to reasons beyond the control of DID or the repair agent, such as the availability of parts, or difficulty replicating the reported fault.

If the goods you return for repair contain data, replacement or repair of the product may result in the permanent and irretrievable loss of this data. As such, we strongly recommend that you back up your data frequently to prevent data loss. Sensitive or confidential data may be visible to the party assessing and/or repairing your goods, as such should be removed where possible to preserve confidentiality. DID Electrical accepts no responsibility for any loss of data.
