5. Prices, payments, VAT and invoicing
Prices are stated in EUR.
Prices on the website include VAT or the similar applicable tax in the European Union country in which the Customer receives the product, but they exclude delivery costs, which are calculated automatically during the payment procedure, before orders are finalised, based on the total weight of the order.
All taxes, duties, charges, fees, levies and other fiscal impositions which may at any time be charged or payable outside Spain (excluding Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla) in respect of the goods shall be borne and paid by you.
Due to trade requirements, international orders such as to the ones to USA may be subject to sales tax. Customers are responsible for paying import duties, fees, and taxes on USA and international orders upon delivery.
Unfortunately, due to a number of factors such as currency, country of destination, size and weight of the parcel, we are not able to provide you with an estimation of these additional costs. We suggest that in case of doubt you contact your local customs office to know the current charges before placing your order.
You may pay using Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, Discover, American Express, and Paypal. When you click on “Authorise Payment”, in addition to expressly agreeing to enter into the sales contract you are also confirming that the credit card is yours or that you have authorisation to use it. Credit cards are subject to checks and authorisation by the card issuer and, therefore, if the issuer in question fails to authorise payment we do not assume liability for any delay or failure to deliver, nor shall we be able to enter into any contract with you.
The delivery of items shall be understood to take place in the territory of the country in which you receive the product.
You hereby expressly authorise us to issue an electronic invoice, though you may at any time inform us that you wish to receive a hard copy invoice, in which case we shall send you the invoice in this form.
