Do your hardware wallets come with a manufacturer warranty?
Because we are authorized retailers of all the hardware wallets we sell and have close partnerships with these companies, all of our products come with the full manufacturer warranty.
What do I do if my device is lost or stolen?
If your device were to fall into the hands of a third party, a PIN number will prevent them from accessing your funds.
As long as you have your 12, 18 or 24 word seed, you can enter it into any compatible software or hardware wallet and recover your assets.
Why is it important to buy from an authorized retailer?
Hardware wallets are known for their improved security for digital assets over software wallets and exchanges that are susceptible to hackers and security lapses.
But the security of hardware wallets is useless if you cannot trust the seller who is selling you a new or used hardware wallet. Recent stories have emerged claiming that unauthorized wallet resellers on platforms like eBay and Amazon can tamper with the wallets and steal assets completely unbeknownst to the consumer.
It is wise to purchase exclusively from exclusive authorized resellers such as The Crypto Merchant, to ensure the safety and authenticity of your hardware wallet.
