What does “B-stock” mean?
« on: September 15, 2018, 02:46:20 PM »

Importers/Distributors will occasionally sell B-Stock items, often through retailers, which are items that may have been opened and used for demonstration purposes, photo shoots, returned, refurbished and/or repaired etc. and may have minor (if any) cosmetic damage. Packaging is usually complete, with few exceptions. 

Invoices when sold will usually state B-stock and serial numbers would be recorded accordingly.

The item would have been certified by the IMPORTER as in working condition with no known underlying faults.

As B-Stock units may include discontinued models, they have as a rule less than the normal manufacturers warranties (In South Africa, usually limited to 3-6 months/not extendable) as long as they are purchased from an Authorized Dealer.
