Registering electronics and devices help show proof of ownership, makes it easy for a person to access after sales services, gives people access to special offers and bonuses, helps in updating owners on new happenings, ensures safety for the user and helps the government earn its revenue. Electronic and device registration normally happens at the point of purchase. However, if a product was not registered during purchase, it may be prudent to register online or visit the dealer that sold it for registration.
One of the reasons why registering electronics and devices is important is that it helps customs authorities monitor revenue collection. Owning unregistered items is both unethical and may affect the economy since it makes it difficult for the authorities to collect due taxes.
Another advantage of registering is that proof of ownership is established. In case the electronic or device is recovered after being stolen, the true owner can easily be traced and given the item.
It is equally easy for a person that registered an item to access after sales services that may include repair or replacement in case of damage. Customers who have registered items are likely to be given preference when it comes to company bonuses and special offers.
