What if the price of the goods changes on your website?
If you start an order today, and the price of that product is lower on our website when you finish your payment plan, we will provide you with a credit for the difference in price. If however the price is higher at the end of the plan than it was when you placed your order, you will still only be charged the initial lower price. Please also note that this credit can only be used on new orders and not on existing orders. We have a minimum cart value of $100 after a credit has been applied and the credit will have an expiry of 28 days from its issue date. It is your responsibility to advise us if your product is lower on our website when your payment plan has finished.
What if what I order isn't available at the time of fulfilment?
From time to time a product that you order may be out of stock or deleted once we go to place that order with the relevant supplier. In this instance we will try and find you a similar product and we will provide you the option of either (a) receiving that similar product, or (b) receiving a refund.
How do the payments work?
Once you have placed your order, an initial payment of the first instalment is required with following payments occurring at the time intervals you have selected. Automatic payments will occur on the chosen day (or next business day if the date is a public holiday). If you wish to skip a payment please let us know before midday on the business day PRIOR to the scheduled payment. As payments are automated we cannot cancel them the day they are due.
What if I want to cancel my order?
If you wish to cancel your order, you may do so by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. As payments are automated we require a minimum of one business day before your next payment is due to cancel any payment. All payments will be refunded minus 20% of the total value of the cancelled order. If you wish to cancel your order within 30 days of the original scheduled final payment date the cancellation fee may be higher than 20% to cover extra costs such as having to clear your stock items at a discounted price. This cancellation fee will be discussed with you at the time of your cancellation request. There will be no charge if you cancel your order before payments have commenced.
What if I want to make changes to my payment schedule?
You can make changes to your payment schedule by emailing us at email@example.com. The maximum period that you can extend a Payment Plan is 28 days from the original final payment date on an order.
What if I pay off my order earlier than the payment schedule?
Please note that an 'Estimated Delivery Date' is set when you initially place your order, and we expect to deliver your order to you on or around that Estimated Delivery Date if you make all your payments successfully when they are due. If you pay your order off early it can take up to 21 days for us to delivery your order from your final payment date.
What if I miss a payment or a payment dishonours?
If a scheduled payment fails we will suspend your order and charge you a failed payment dishonour fee of up to $9.95.
