Dear [Recipients Name],
First of all, I would like to thank you personally for doing business with XYZ Electronics. I am sorry to hear that you are not happy with the universal charger that you purchased three weeks ago. However, you were given the chance to test it before you paid for it, so we are sure that you were able to see the color of the wiring. We regret to inform you that we cannot provide you with a replacement just because the color is not to your liking. Furthermore, the box has already been damaged, so we cannot take it back again. I hope that you understand our reasons for not replacing the item. Thank you very much for your consideration.

Further things to consider when writing response letters to business partners
Response letters are letters written to provide answers or information requested in letters of inquiry. The main purpose of such letters is to satisfy the recipient with an action that fulfills his/her request. A response letter can be used to respond to a query about company's products and services or just to respond to a complaint. It makes the recipient feel valued and helps maintain strong relationships between the parties involved. A response letter also gives you an opportunity to clear up any misunderstandings with the recipient or ask questions. Response letters should be sent promptly, and all issues must be addressed courteously (even those that seem irrelevant).
When writing response letters, it is advisable to keep the message short and to the point, taking into account that the recipient may lack your expertise. Make sure to address the letter to the person who made the inquiry and mention that this is a response to that inquiry. Maintain a positive tone even if the letter contains negative information. Make your response as clear as possible. If you are responding to multiple questions, for instance, consider putting your answers in bullet form. Close by offering to give further assistance.
Letters to Business Partners
Letters to business partners are letters you write to people with whom you have some degree of involvement with their business dealings. A business partnership is a legal relationship formed when two or more people agree to run a business together are co-owners. When you make such a partnership, you need to write a letter to your business partners to convey your message clearly and strongly, and to keep a legal record of the partnership. The letter should be formal and must contain the partnership offer, names of all the business partners, and the terms and conditions of the partnership.
Letters to business partners should be written with a professional tone. They should conform to all the accepted business letters standards. State the purpose of the letter. Give all the necessary details regarding the partnership as outlined in the contract. Include the name and title of the recipient. Employ the appropriate formal salutations and closings. State the date clearly and mention any document that is enclosed with the letter. Close the letter on a positive note and sign it off with your name and title. Letters to business partners should be printed on the company's letterhead.
