dropController Purchase Policy


dropControllers are built is small batches and are normally in stock, however, it may take several days to process an order.

Custom controllers / custom devices are built to order and the development/build time is different for every order. This will be confirmed at the time of enquiry.


Orders that have not shipped can be cancelled for a full refund minus handling fees. Refunds can only be sent to the original form of payment.
Orders for custom controller are not covered by the full refund policy and refunds are based on the amount of work already performed. If work has not started, then a full refund minus handling fees is usual. If work has already started, then a partial refund minus the cost of work already done & materials purchased may be possible.


Payments are through PayPal Business. Payments can be made from PayPal accounts, credit cards, or debit cards. PayPal may offer other payment options depending on your country.

VAT/import tax

International orders may be subject to an import tax/duty on arrival at the destination country, this is payable by the receiver. If tax is applicable the courier will contact you to arrange a payment. If the payment is refused the package will be returned and we will be forced to pay the duty and also the return shipping. In such cases the full costs will be deducted from a refund.
