Dear Mr McLardie,
Thank you for our phone conversation today.
According to our conversation and the e-mail correspondence that we found, the product that you received, an airwheel X3 with order number #[protected] became defect after a short period of time.
We understand that the shipping costs are an extra disappointing factor in your experience with our company. We have the following suggestion to make;
According to our terms and conditions, the shipping costs for such cases are covered by the customer. This policy if unfortunately non- flexible.
"Regarding the return of a product within the warranty period the customer may return the item for technical service.
Products under warranty cannot be refunded, they can only be repaired or replaced with a new item. The shipment costs for the returned product will belong to the customer and the shipment costs for the repaired/replaced item will belong to Metem."
However, since you are interested in replacing your Airwheel X3 with our new product Ali 5 v2, we can adjust its initial price and send you our product without any additional cost. According to our database, you were charged the amount of €459, 00. The price for the Ali5 is currently €579, 00 so the difference would be €120, 00. Our suggestion is that you send your parcel with your airwheel X3 back to us and you cover the shipping cost as our policy implies. After we receive your parcel, we can send you the airbike Ali5 v2 without charging you the difference, provided that the shipping costs will indeed exceed or be equal to it. However please keep in mind that our company carries no responsibility for duty fees or other charges that are not related to our products. 
If you agree so, here are some instructions for the next steps;
• You can send your parcel back to our office in Amsterdam or in Istanbul. We advise you to check first the shipping costs for each country and then inform us about where you intend to send it.
• Please send us a proof of payment of the shipping costs. It can be a simple picture. 
• Your guarantee covers you for problems related to the construction of the item and not for damages due to misusage. 
• We would like to kindly as you to return the product in its original package if possible. Please do not forget to include a short description of the problem.
Our addresses in Amsterdam and Istanbul
• Metem International B.V., Kabelweg 43, 1014 BA Amsterdam, The NETHERLANDS
• Metem Technology, Necatibey Cad. No: 61 Karaköy / Istanbul / Turkey 
We hope that our suggestion finds you positive. We are looking forward to hearing your decision.
Kind Regards,
