I have purchased my device from somewhere else other than Amazon. Can I still purchase?
No, Plan is not available for sale on stand-alone on Amazon
The new mobile I purchased on Amazon had some defect and I have returned it to Amazon. I have received a new mobile now as replacement. Do I need to purchase the Plan again or do I get a refund?
The Acko All Protection Plan is a hassle-free way to manage any issues with your phone. So if you have returned the mobile purchased on Amazon for any reason, you may share the new IMEI with Acko. They will confirm the information with Amazon and your Plan benefits shall be transferred to your replaced Mobile
The mobile I received from Amazon was broken at the time of delivery. Can I get the same replaced under the Acko All Round Protection Plan?
No, in case the mobile you received from Amazon already had a defect then you must raise the same with Amazon immediately. Defect or damage raised within 10 (ten) days of delivery of the mobile are not covered under the Plan.
How many repairs are allowed during the Plan term?
Only one repair can be raised within the Plan term. The maximum amount covered is the depreciated value of the device at the time of claim.
What are the documents required for raising a repair request?
Acko All Round Protection Plan is a completely online and paperless process. Hence, no documents are required for raising a repair request on Acko.tech. However, Acko may ask for additional documents on case to case basis if required.
Why is there a depreciation on my Mobile invoice price? When is the depreciated value of the mobile payable to me?
Every electronic device undergoes wear and tear during the course of being used by customer. Due to this, the original invoice price of the mobile gets reduced as the mobile becomes older. In order to arrive at the fair market value of the mobile, Acko uses the following depreciation grid:
Age of the Covered Equipment & Depreciation Applicable
Up-to 90 days from date of delivery of Mobile 15% of Invoice Value
Between 91 days to 180 days from date of delivery of Mobile 30% of Invoice Value
181 days to 270 days from date of delivery of Mobile 40% of Invoice Value
Between 271 days to 365 days from date of delivery of Mobile 50% of Invoice Value
What is Beyond Economic Repair (BER) or Total Loss?
Beyond Economic Repair is when the estimated cost for repair of the device exceeds the depreciated value (or fair market value) of the mobile covered under the Plan. In such cases, it is prudent to refund the Fair Market Value (or depreciated Value) to customer instead of doing the repair. This helps the customer to get a better value for the damaged device instead of repairing the same. Kindly note for any settlement under BER, the damaged handset and Accessories received in the box with the handset will be retained by Acko.
What do I have to pay at the time of Repair?
Acko All Round Protection Plan is a one-time charge product. Hence, at the time of any kind of repair, you do not have to pay anything again.
