1. Sales General Questions

Do you offer factory tours to prospective distributors?
We research, develop, and manufacture extremely high-tech products, which means that confidentiality is a top priority at MICRODIA, so while we’d love to show off our world-class facilities to you, we, unfortunately, cannot.
I have never heard of MICRODIA before; who are you?
MICRODIA has been a leading mobile data storage innovator since the early 90s. We pioneered storage technology such as floppy disks, CD-ROM, and high-capacity data cards for industrial purposes, and while you may have yet to learn the name, as an OEM manufacturer, you have almost certainly used a product designed and manufactured by us. Now, you can give your customers that same pioneering innovation with a convincing profit motive.
Why do you only have one service center while your competitors have several?
MICRODIA has a defect rate of 0.0001%, which means only one in 100,000 pieces is ever returned. With a low defect rate, we don’t need more than one service center.
Can you reassure me about defective products?
MICRODIA’s dedication to quality and stringent quality control ensure a defect rate of 0.0001%, which means only one in 100,000 pieces is ever returned. We are confident in the quality of our products and, as such, provide the MICRODIA Warranty printed on the packaging. It explains in detail what the end-user should do if they ever need to use the warranty.
How do I return defective products?
After requesting the customer follow the troubleshooting guidelines, which will almost always resolve the issue, if the problem is not resolved, the retailer must gather all information on the product and its reported defect in order to resolve it. If this fails, the customer must contact for technical assistance. If it appears that the item is indeed defective, it must be returned with original packaging, Purchase receipt, Warranty registration (as proof that the warranty was registered in the correct country), and the Signed waiver form that users know and accept that data recovery is not guaranteed at 100%; there will be data loss and corruption.
How do you guarantee timely order fulfilment?
We have over three decades of experience in OEM manufacturing for the biggest technology brands in the world, where complete and timely fulfilment of millions of products was non-negotiable. As such, we are more than equipped to handle the largest orders within the specified turnaround times. With six state-of-the-art factories in four manufacturing and export-geared countries operated by 500+ engineers under strict ISO 9001:2000 controls, we always deliver on time only the best products in the exact specifications and quantities.
Why is MICRODIA better than its competitors?
MICRODIA invests significant amounts of its turnover into R&D, meaning that we are far ahead of our competitors in terms of innovation. We are also key leaders in the industry, having manufactured industrial-quality data storage products for over three decades and being the OEM manufacturer for the world's most well-known data brands. As the leader in our field, we don’t have “competitors” unless we say we do. We have boots on the ground in every market we service, and our expertise becomes your expertise.
Why should I stock MICRODIA?
Stocking MICRODIA products is not only a good decision in terms of profit but also in terms of becoming the market leader in mobile accessories, data storage, and cutting-edge technology in your service area. With our pinpoint accuracy in predicting future market trends, you will always have the right product just in time to fully capitalize on the beginning of a trend as it takes off. We have an all-encompassing product range, so a customer will never leave your store empty-handed. We also provide extensive backend support from an exclusive, dedicated team.

2. Returns and Exchanges

If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase or the product is found to be defective, you may return the item to us in its original condition within 7 days of receipt. Returns made within 7 days of receipt will be refunded to the original form of payment. After 7 days, MICRODIA cannot accept returns for any reason other than defects for items under warranty (please see Warranty page for more details). Items purchased on sale are final sale, and are not eligible for refunds. Only items purchased directly on MICRODIA eSHOP will be accepted. For products purchased from authorized retailers, please get in touch with them directly for returns.

Returned items must be in original packaging, including any accessories, manuals, and documentation. Non-returnable items include items purchased through retailers, incorrect products purchased, and damaged products through customer mishandling.

Returns without receipt may be refused. MICRODIA reserves the right to deny any returns.
