Note: We currently sell two products that are not Paul C. Buff™ products: the PocketWizard® PowerMC2 Receivers (MC2-US and MC2-CE). These products are designed and manufactured by LPA Design for use with our Einstein™ flash units. We offer our standard 60-Day Absolute Satisfaction Guarantee on these products, but those products are excluded from this warranty.

The shipping charges (both to and from our offices) are not included. You can ship your unit to us using your choice of shipping method and carrier. We advise using a method where tracking is available. You may wish to purchase insurance as well (we cannot be responsible for items that you ship to us using your preferred shipping method). We will ship your upgraded unit to you using your choice of available UPS shipping methods for your location.

With the upgrade, we will include a new housing or case (you can change housing colors if you like) and any factory warranty service needed. The normal turnaround time for upgrades, color changes and service is 2 to 4 business days from the receipt of your unit and payment arrangement.

Note: Limited edition AlienBees™ B400 and B800 units can be upgraded for the same charge of $25 plus the price difference between the models (plus shipping), but the housing color cannot be changed to another limited edition color. Likewise, standard AlienBees™ units receiving an upgrade can change housing colors, but they cannot be changed to limited edition colors.
