Option 2: Type
There are certain dependencies on this option of warranty type. The dependencies are demonstrated below.
Type:- No Warranty & Warranty Included
You can choose the type of warranty you would like to offer customers here.
Hint: If you select “No Warranty” the customer will still be able to make a claim under their statutory consumer rights and under our Alpha Zulu Guarantee, so ‘No Warranty’ is not used very often.
Basically, there are three types of warranty to offer for the vendors to their customers. No Warranty, Warranty included and Warranty as Add-On.
The type ‘No Warranty‘ will reveal no new option but selecting ‘Warranty Included’ will add three more options, Length, Length Value and Length Duration as seen below.
Length option is whether you are looking to offer the warranty for a Limited time or lifetime. Length Value is the value to be added for the warranty offered for any product. Lastly, Length Duration is the term of the warranty in the form of Month or Years.
When the length of the warranty is selected to “Lifetime”, the length value and length duration option will be hidden as shown below.
