Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I purchase your products?
You can place an order directly from our website. We also have products for sale on Amazon, eBay, and Ingram Micro, although product selection and stock availability may vary.
I’ve found your products on Amazon/eBay, are those real?
We only sell brand new products on Amazon and eBay. ConnectPRO products on Amazon and/or eBay that are in used condition are not sold by us. Therefore, we do not provide any warranty or repair services for those used products. Please pay attention to the seller name on the listings, our seller name on the listing is “ConnectPro”.
Do you sell and ship products to customers located outside of the United States?
Yes, we do. The customer is responsible for paying the shipping fees and any VAT/import taxes associated with the purchase. The shipping fee is calculated by the shipping carrier based on the customer’s shipping address.
If I order an item today, how long does it take before the item is shipped and leaves the warehouse?
If an item is in stock, we generally ship out that item within 1-2 business days after the order is placed. We will contact you if it will take more than 2 business days to ship out the product. There is no guaranteed timeframe on any products that are on back order. In that case, we will do our best to ship out the product to you as soon as possible.
When I place an order, do you charge my card immediately, or do you do that when the product ships out?
We collect payment immediately when the order is placed. In the case of some items (including back ordered items), due to the long lead time for some of the electronic components, we have to schedule production accordingly. Your payment will act as a reservation and a guarantee that you will receive the items ordered when we schedule production.
If I order several items, but one or more items are on back order, do you ship what’s available first?
No, the calculated shipping fee is for all items being shipped in one shipment only. We will ship everything in the order when all items are in stock. If you want to receive items separately as they are available, please place separate orders.
Can I request a special time and date for the delivery of the package?
No, we are not able to provide special delivery instructions. We do not have a special relationship with any shipping carriers. We do not have any control over when and how your package arrives. The shipping carriers can provide an estimate of when your package will arrive on their website.

Can you declare the shipment at a lower value, or mark it as a gift?
No. All shipments will be declared as merchandise with the full retail value as required by U.S. and international laws.
Other companies have helped me declare the shipment with lower value before, why can’t you do that?
