5. Specific terms relating to product orders and purchases
When a product is offered for sale on the Site, we are not offering to sell that product; we are enabling you to purchase the product from the third party Supplier who is listing that product on our site.
You will either be redirected to the Supplier’s website and any transaction that you enter into with the Supplier will not involve us or you may utilize our services that facilitate the placing of orders with third party Suppliers and the remainder of this clause deals with orders that we facilitate.
All orders placed through the Site are subject to the Supplier’s acceptance of the order together with any additional terms and conditions imposed by the Supplier; and;
When you place an order to purchase a product from the Site, we will send you an e-mail confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order. Your order represents an offer to the Supplier to purchase a product and the email that we send to you confirming receipt of your order simply confirms that your order has been received by us and will be communicated to the Supplier. The email that we send to you confirming receipt of your order is not an acceptance of the order by Us or the Supplier.
If a Supplier wishes to accept your order we will send subsequent e-mail confirmation to you confirming that your Order has been accepted by the Supplier and details of the dispatch of the Goods (the "Dispatch E-mail").
When you place your order and before acceptance of it can occur you will be required to make full payment to the Supplier via the order and payment sections of the Website. Please note that the Site is a marketplace, and as that transactions are between you and Supplier, and not between you and Us.
All postage, customs duty (as applicable), GST and any other taxes associated with the sale will be paid by you and it is the Supplier’s responsibility to determine, collect and remit the applicable sales and any other taxes associated with the sale.
The sale will be subject to any warranties implied under applicable law. The contract between You and the Supplier will be governed by the laws New South Wales and You irrevocably submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of New South Wales.
As some of our Products are sold by Suppliers located internationally, you may be subject to local tax/import duties if the item is being shipped from outside your specified delivery country. We have listed where the item is shipped from within the delivery tab of the product page. We do not assume any responsibility for any applicable local tax/import charges. When receiving products from our Suppliers, you must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods.
Dispatch estimates are not guaranteed dispatch times and should not be relied upon as such. As the Supplier processes your order, it will inform you by e-mail as to the availability of the goods you have ordered.
From time to time, additional shipping charges may apply, specifically for furniture and heavy items. Should additional shipping charges apply, we will contact you to advise you of such at which time you may choose to continue with your order or alternatively cancel your order for a full refund.
We are not the Supplier of the goods you order and as such we have no contractual liability to you in respect of the purchase of a product. If there is a problem with the product or if you require a refund then your contractual remedy will be against the Supplier, not us.
The 10% Off Your First Order Promotional Code can not be used in conjunction with any Sale or other Promotion where a discounted price is offered.
Our 28 days return policy does not apply to furniture purchases and refunds on furniture orders are unable to be offered for change of mind.
