Frequently asked questions
How to place an order?

Select the number of tapes you want to get digitized through ‘quantity’. For output options, select whether you want your tapes transferred to cloud (Google Drive download) or to your Storage Device (e.g. USB Thumbdrive, External Hard Disk).

For those who preferred getting transferred tapes onto your Storage Device: You are responsible for providing a device for us. You may use your own USB Thumbdrive, SD card or External Hard Disk, and ship it along with your tapes.

Where do we ship our tapes? Will my tape returned?

ORDERING: We RECOMMEND you send us a message first to confirm your interest of getting your old tapes digitized. After receiving your orders, we’ll send you our mailing address. Please understand due to online spamming that tend to purchase our services and requesting for cancellation at the same time.

SHIPPING: We also recommend you to provide tracking numbers in order for both parties to monitor when the tapes will have arrived. You are responsible for shipping your tapes to us.

TAPE RETURN: We do return your tapes but you'll be charged for shipping fees. However, if you don't need your tapes back, please proceed to this listing for more details: https://www.etsy.com/listing/792389835/tapes-to-digital-trans

How long does it take?

Orders normally takes two weeks or less from the time tapes are received. Single orders are generally shipped back in less than a week. It may take a bit longer when the shop is busy.

Our listings will always give you a deadline date for completion because some customers take more time to a week or two for them to ship their tapes and by the time we get it in, Etsy already had the order due for completion.

Please prepare all the tapes to be shipped before making orders to avoid delays. For bulk orders, it may take more than two weeks unless we contact you about a problem related to the age or condition of your tapes.

We recommend you to reach out to us first before purchasing.

Can you enhance the tape condition and quality?

Please inspect your tapes to make sure they are not packed with dust, dirt, or mold. That said, the quality of your digitized videos are based on the quality of the original tape you provide. That's why it is recommendable to immortalize your tapes right away before they fade any further. We cannot process these damaged tapes as it may cause problems for our equipment.

At our deals we have, we cannot turn your videos onto HD-ish or 4K-ish quality. A decades-old video that was never designed to be blown up on a big 4K TV. You have to be realistic about your expectations. Check out our 5-star reviews, these people from different parts of the country were very happy to see their immortalized memories. Go see for yourself.

What if my tapes are blank?

We'll let you know and you can send another tape as a replacement. That's because still we have to take time to scan the entire tape to ensure if it's really empty. Here at Haribon, we offer great deals here and there are no discounts for blank tapes, even if it has only 3 seconds footage of it.

How do digital download works?

We upload your videos on Google Drive, and the access link will be good for 1 MONTH to download your videos. This format can be played back on all devices including Smart TVs via USB thumbdrive, and playable on Windows and Mac.

If you want your digital videos to be sent through Google Drive, this is the best option for you because it's more convenient to share your videos or store it to your own storage devices, you may even share it on your social media as well!

I'm worried about my tapes getting damaged during in-transit. What should I do?

Wrap your tapes or place them in a safety plastic baggies properly so that they are not sent loose or could get damaged during in-transit.

What is your cancellation policy?

Cancellations can be requested as long as we haven't sent our mailing address to you. Please be sure that you've decided to get your tapes transferred. Any orders placed but not shipped to us within 30 days are NOT REFUNDABLE but may still be processed as an order credit.

If transfer rates have increased at that time of credit use, you will be responsible for the difference. We'll do everything in our power to reach out to you but PLEASE help us to avoid this by sending your tapes off at least within a week of order. If you won't make it on-time, please don't hesitate to message us.
