You agree that your order from us is an offer to buy, under these Terms, all Products listed in your order. All orders must be accepted by us or we will not be obligated to sell the Products to you. We may choose not to accept any orders in our sole discretion. After having received your order, we will send you a confirmation email with your order number and details of the Products you have ordered.

You have the option to cancel your order by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and so long as we received and acknowledge such email before we have your order and upon subject to the other terms contained herein.
Backordered inventory is inventory currently not in stock that is sold and will be delivered when it becomes available. There may be delays for the backorder Products due to unforeseen circumstances during the shipping process or inadequacies on the manufacturer’s side. If you order a Product that is out of stock, we do not and cannot guarantee an estimated time of shipment, delivery, or availability. We will do our best to make sure you get the Products in a reasonable timeframe. Please note that someone may have allocated inventory prior to you, and your order may not be fulfilled from the next shipment we get in of the Products you ordered. When placing an order that contains Products that are in stock as well as Products that are out of stock, the in-stock Products will ship according to our standard shipping policies.
All prices posted on this Site are subject to change without notice. The price charged for a Product will be the price in effect at the time the order is placed and will be set out in your order confirmation email. Price increases will only apply to orders placed after such changes. Posted prices do not include taxes or charges for shipping and handling. All such taxes and charges will be added to your merchandise total and will be itemized in your shopping cart and in your order confirmation email. We are not responsible for pricing, typographical, or other errors in any offer by us and we reserve the right to cancel any orders arising from such errors.
Terms of payment are within our sole discretion and, unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, payment must be received by us before our acceptance of an order.
a. Credit Cards
- We accept American Express, Discover, Master Card, and VISA for all purchases, except international purchases unless pre-approved. For international purchases, we accept PayPal and wire transfers.
- For first time purchases for an account, we cannot ship to an address that is different than the billing address. The shipping address must match the billing address of the card being used and the Street Address, ZIP Code and the CSC number (also known as the CVC or CVV number) must match the card used for the purchase. After the first purchase is completed and all funds have been received, we will then be able to ship to different addresses for you.
- When paying with credit card, you represent and warrant that (i) the credit card information you supply to us is true, correct, and complete, (ii) you are duly authorized to use such credit card for the purchase, (iii) charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit card company, and (iv) you will pay charges incurred by you at the posted prices, including all applicable taxes, if any.
- When you place an order with us using a credit card, an authorization will be posted to your account. Once the order has been shipped out the amount will then be charged. If your order is shipped out partial, we charge you for what is shipped out. Once the other Products become available and shipped, the remaining balance for those Products will then be charged to your account.
b. Wire Transfers
We accept wire transfers for all purchases. If paying by wire transfer, your order will not be approved and released until the transfer is complete and the funds are in our account. Wire fees are the responsibility of the sender, and may be collected in advance. For wiring information, please contact us.
We accept PayPal for all purchases. You may choose this payment method when you place your order online.
d. Net Term Accounts
- We offer net terms to approved customers. Net term customers must keep their account in good standing or all shipments for the account will automatically cease until it is reconciled. A service charge of 1.5% per month (annual rate of 18%) may be charged on all invoices past due (with a minimum finance charge of $10 USD). For clarity, “in good standing” means that on a term account of net 30 days, we will receive payment in full within 30 days of the invoice date any payments received later than the stated terms would indicate a late payment and any balances on account past the term days are past due and the account is not in good standing. If your account repeatedly goes into bad standing, your account will lose terms and automatically revert to C.O.D.
- An administrative charge in the amount of $50.00 USD may be levied for administration on account processing activities in connection with your account, including as a result of collection efforts due to non-payment, having a balance over your credit limit, returned or rejected payments due to non-sufficient funds (“NSF”), or returned for any other reason.
- If payment is still not received for a further 30 days past the terms due date, the account will be turned over to collection agency for collection. The account holder will be liable for collection and/or incurred legal fees and cost. Any credit cards associated to the account may be used to satisfy any past due amounts without prior agreement.
- All net term customers must agree to the terms of our Master Purchase Agreement. If there is a credit card on file and the account becomes delinquent, we may charge the balance to all cards on file to get the account current. However, in the normal course of business NET TERM ACCOUNTS MAY NOT BE PAID WITH A CREDIT CARD.
