Nanolive shall offer payment terms, pursuant to the conditions.
Our standard payment conditions are (i) 50% within 2 weeks after ordering; (ii) 50% immediately prior to the delivery of the products.

Nanolive SA does from time-to-time offer coupons on their products. When placing an order, simply type the coupon code as listed during the checkout process. Once entered, you will instantly see your updated price reflecting your discount. Please note only one coupon code can be used per order.


Time of shipment is based on the order in which Nanolive receives the purchase orders. Accordingly, the expected delivery date is communicated in the purchase order. 

All the products shall be shipped Ex Works within the Schengen Area and Free-Carrier (FCA) for all other international orders (Incoterms 2010).

In such case, Nanolive SA will ship nationally and internationally with their designated shipping partner (DHL) and the terms of the sale shall be adapted to DAP (delivered at place) (Incoterms 2010). For the avoidance of doubt, our prices do not include any brokerage fees, duties or taxes imposed on products imported into the country of destination. All such fees, duties or taxes and any other costs shall be borne exclusively by the customer. All costs incurred in relation to a refused delivery because of high customs or brokerage fees, duties, taxes or restrictions imposed by the country of destination shall be borne exclusively by the customer.

Note: In any case (should Nanolive appoint the carrier or not) there is no liability of Nanolive for late delivery. We cannot be held responsible for shipping delays that may commonly occur with these carriers in their normal course of business


All returned products require a Return Merchandise Authorization (“RMA”) and no return or refund can be processed without an RMA. The RMA number will be given by a customer service representative whom you can contact via support@nanolive.ch or by phone at +41 21 3530600.


You shall promptly inspect all products and any apparent defects, defects relating to transport, incorrect shipments and shortages shall be reported to us in writing immediately and in any event not later than three days after receipt of the products. If a whole consignment of products has not been received, such failure to deliver shall be reported to us in writing as soon as practicable and in any event not later than four weeks after the expected delivery date of the products. In the absence of such report, the products will be deemed accepted upon installation or confirmed delivery if no installation is to be provided. The absence of such report will be deemed a waiver by you of any and all such claims.


The standard warranty period is 12 months from the product delivery and covers all parts of the product. Extended warranty periods of 12 months may be purchased by customer for EUR 1,000.00. Warranty coverage does not include pick-up costs from the customer site. After repair, Nanolive will ship back your product for free.

All technical services are available through our customer service which you can contact at support@nanolive.ch or by phone at +41 21 3530600.


 All products returned for repair require an RMA. If products are not covered by warranty, a minimum fee (in Euro) will be estimated and subsequently charged to assess and repair the product plus the cost of any parts required and shipping.

Typically, repairs will be completed within three weeks of receiving the product although the exact timing will vary according to the complexity of the repairs, any requirement to order spare parts and the volume of repair work in hand at any given time. The customer is responsible for all shipping costs at standard rates quoted to us by our carrier. For any question or information, please contact support@nanolive.ch or by phone at +41 21 3530600.
