- Product Description and Availability
- Product Descriptions
ZEROKAY commits to providing accurate and detailed descriptions of products on its website. While considerable efforts are made to ensure the accuracy of this information, except for data related to certifications, these descriptions should not be seen as formal guarantees of the product features.
Photographs and visual representations of products are provided for reference only. ZEROKAY cannot guarantee an exact match with the actual product, especially regarding colors. Variations in shades or finishes may occur, particularly due to differences in monitor types and settings. For specific queries, customers are encouraged to contact ZEROKAY for more information.
- Product Availability
ZEROKAY reserves the right to modify its product range at any time. Specific offers may be available for a limited period, clearly indicated for each product or range concerned.
ZEROKAY commits to fulfilling orders placed on the site, subject to stock availability. In exceptional cases, a product initially indicated as available may become unavailable after order validation. In such cases, the customer will be informed via email as soon as possible, the order will be canceled, and the amount paid will be fully refunded.
In the event of a stockout, ZEROKAY cannot be held liable. No cancellation compensation, other than the full refund of the order, may be claimed by the customer.
The prices of products offered by ZEROKAY are in Swiss Francs (CHF). For customers based in Switzerland, these prices include Swiss VAT according to current legislation and are firm and final at the time of the customer’s final confirmation of the order.
For customers accessing the site from abroad or having items delivered outside of Switzerland, the displayed prices in Swiss Francs do not include Swiss VAT, as it is not applicable. In such cases, customers may be subject to VAT, as well as other taxes and customs duties applicable in the delivery country. These additional costs are the responsibility of the customer and will be billed separately, in addition to the price of the products displayed on the site.
It is important to note that the prices displayed on the site do not include delivery charges. These will be clearly notified and added to the total amount at the time of cart validation. The delivery charges are based on current rates and include packaging costs.
ZEROKAY regularly offers special deals, sales, or discounts. These promotions are valid until the indicated date or until stocks are exhausted. ZEROKAY reserves the right to change its prices at any time, but the price displayed on the site at the time of the order is the one that will be applied.
For deliveries outside Switzerland, it is important to note that customs duties and all other applicable taxes are the exclusive responsibility of the customer. These additional charges, which vary depending on the destination country, are not included in the final price and must be considered by the customer when finalizing their order.
ZEROKAY provides customers with a variety of payment options, ensuring both flexibility and security in the payment process.
- Payment by Twint and Credit Card
Customers can pay for their orders using Twint or a credit card. When this option is selected, the total order amount will be charged to the customer’s account at the time of the transaction. Customers must ensure they have the necessary permissions to use their chosen payment method. It is the customer’s responsibility to use the bank card they own personally. ZEROKAY cannot be held responsible for fraudulent use. If the bank refuses the transaction, the order will be automatically canceled, and the customer will be informed by email.
ZEROKAY employs the secure payment system of Worldline Suisse SA. Payment-related confidential data is transmitted in encrypted form directly to Worldline Suisse S.A., ensuring the confidentiality and security of the payment. Only the payment service provider has access to the banking information provided during the transaction. No banking data is stored on ZEROKAY’s servers.
- Payment by Voucher
During payment, customers have the option to use a voucher. To do this, they must enter the voucher code at checkout. The amount of the voucher will then be automatically deducted from the total order amount.
- Delivery and Receipt
- Delivery Policy
After receiving and confirming payment for the order, ZEROKAY strives to process and ship orders within a maximum of 3 business days. However, this period may be extended during periods of high activity or sales.
- Order Shipment
Shipments are made with a tracking number. For deliveries requiring a signature, if the customer is not present, a notice will be left, inviting the customer to pick up their package from the post office. If the package is not collected within the allotted time and is returned to ZEROKAY, the return and reshipping fees will be charged to the customer. Ownership and risks associated with the package are transferred to the customer upon delivery to the carrier, typically Swiss Post. ZEROKAY is not responsible for the delivery once the package is handed over to the carrier but remains available to assist in case of any problems, provided that immediate and complete notification is sent by email.
- Responsibility for the Delivery Address
ZEROKAY uses the information provided by the customer for delivery. Any error or omission in the provided address that compromises delivery is the responsibility of the customer. ZEROKAY is not responsible for delivery failures or lost packages in case of an incorrect or incomplete address.
- Packaging and Protection
ZEROKAY commits to carefully packaging products but is not responsible for damage occurring during delivery, as the responsibility lies with the transport service.

- Non-Defective Items: For items that are not defective, returns and exchanges are available under the following conditions:
- Item Returns: Returns are accepted within 14 days post-delivery, provided the items are in pristine, unused condition with all original tags attached. Customers must email ZEROKAY to express their intent to return an item. For compliant returns, ZEROKAY will refund the price of the item, excluding any shipping costs incurred initially or for the return.
- Item Exchange: Exchanges are permitted within 14 days of delivery, under the condition that the item remains intact, unused, and with all original tags. Customers intending to exchange an item must notify ZEROKAY via email. For customers in Switzerland, ZEROKAY will refund the initial and return shipping costs for compliant exchanges. International customers are not eligible for shipping cost refunds.
- Refund Policy For returns meeting our conditions, ZEROKAY will issue a refund for the full price of the returned item, including initial shipping costs. The customer is responsible for the cost of return shipping. This policy applies uniformly across all items sold on ZEROKAY’s website.
Specific Regional Policies:
- Switzerland: For defective items, ZEROKAY covers the return shipping costs. For all other returns and exchanges, shipping and return costs are the customer’s responsibility, unless the item is defective.
- Europe and UK: ZEROKAY does not offer exchanges for customers in Europe. Return shipping costs for defective items will be covered by ZEROKAY.
To ensure a smooth refund process, customers are advised to use a trackable mail service for returns, as ZEROKAY cannot be held responsible for lost or missing packages. Upon receiving and inspecting the returned item(s), ZEROKAY will process the refund to the original payment method and confirm via email.
Exchanges: ZEROKAY understands the need for exchanges to ensure customer satisfaction. The same conditions as returns apply to exchanges. Swiss customers are allowed one exchange per order within 14 days of purchase, with ZEROKAY covering all related shipping costs. Exchanges are not available for customers in Europe.
