Shipping & Delivery

Shipping for all orders over AED 499 is free for customers inside the UAE. Shipping fees for orders under AED 499 to customers inside the UAE vary based on the total weight of the order. Shipping fees to customers outside the UAE vary based on geographical location and total order weight. Customers are notified of the fee amount before the order is processed and shipped. We use a variety of delivery methods depending on what is the best for our customer and the level of speed in which they decide they would like their product shipped.

Privacy & Security

Any information the customer provides in the ordering process is kept strictly confidential and is not shared with any third party. Our databases are protected by the highest in online security to ensure that our customers experience a safe and worry-free transaction.

The3DBee uses cookies (small bits of data cached in a user’s browser) to determine whether or not a customer has visited the site in the past. However, no other user information (other than what is voluntarily provided by the user) is gathered. All credit card details or information will not be stored, sold, shared, rented or leased to any third parties.

Returns & Replacements

Items purchased from The3DBee cannot be returned or refunded unless they are faulty or damaged on arrival. We take great pride in the quality of our products and ensure that they are shipped in optimal condition, but manufacturing defects and shipping accidents do occasionally occur.

In either of these cases, please contact The3DBee immediately upon receiving your delivery either through our online form here or on the phone at +971 4 8878846. This will begin the return merchandise authorization (RMA) process, and we will be in touch to determine the cause of the product defect and arrange for return shipping if necessary. We advise you to inspect your delivery immediately upon receipt. In the case of shipping damage or product defects reported to The3DBee after 48 hours of the product's delivery, The3DBee reserves the right to refuse the return of the product, and cannot issue a refund.

If it is deemed that the product was delivered defective or was damaged in shipping, we’ll send out a replacement of the item(s) in question, and pay for the shipping costs of the replacement as well. This is contingent on the product being returned to us in the condition you received it in, with all product packaging and materials that were originally included in the delivery, and sent back to us postmarked within 14 days from the original date of delivery using the return shipping process we have arranged for you. If any of these conditions are not met, The3DBee reserves the right to refuse the return of the product, and deny a refund.

If the reason for return isn’t a result of our error, we unfortunately cannot accept the return or issue a refund.
