The warranty period begins based on the purchase invoice. If this is unavailable, an order receipt is used. If this cannot be provided, the product activation date or the NIU system record date shall be used. For e-commerce orders, the start time of the warranty period is based on the delivery date of the product to the customer.
Our warranty applies only to NIU products that are sold and distributed through us or our authorized resellers.
It is possible to return a NIU product if you do not approve of the terms of the warranty. Return and refund can be made if the conditions meet those stated in our return policy.

HOW TO OBTAIN WARRANTY SERVICE
NIU Products. As a distributor, we work directly with NIU to distribute their products in Canada and the United States. The voluntary warranty we offer on NIU products (the manufacturer) is only valid if the product is originally purchased from us or a reseller authorized by our company. If you have a problem and have bought your NIU product directly from us, please contact our customer service department. We will be happy to assist you. If the original purchase was made from an reseller, please contact that reseller. They will take care of the warranty claim for you.
Products of Other Brands. Our warrantee applies solely to NIU products and does not cover third-party products even when packaged and sold with NIU products. Contact other manufacturers or distributors for other products.
WHAT DO WE DO IN CASE OF A WARRANTY CLAIM?
A claim submitted to NIU during the warranty period will be evaluated and the customer will be notified which of the following actions will be taken to rectify it.
- repair the product using new or previously used parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability
- replace the product with the same model (or with consent, a product with similar functionality) formed from new and/or previously used parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability
- exchange the product for a refund equivalent to the purchase price
Once a part or product has been replaced or refunded, any replacement product will become the property of the customer, and the refunded or replaced product will belong to NIU.
Any replaced or repaired part or product will continue to be covered by the remaining warranty of the original product, or for a period of 90 days from the date of replacement or repair- whichever is longer.
