(3) Order process

The advertising of products on our website or via email constitutes an “invitation to treat”; and your order for products constitutes a contractual offer.

(4) Price and payment
(a) Prices for products are quoted via email or on our website. The email offerings / stock updates contains a large number of products and it is always possible that some of the prices in these emails may be incorrect.

(b)Please note, duties and taxes incurred at the point of entry to the destination country are the responsibility of the customer.
(c)Payment must be made upon the submission of your order. We will withhold the products and not issue any contract between us until the full amount due is received from you in full in cleared funds.
