The receipt of an order confirmation or other notification by you does not necessarily constitute acceptance of your order. Furthermore, we may require additional identification or information before accepting your order.
If a typographical or other error leads to a product being offered at an incorrect price, we reserve the right to decline or cancel any orders for that product. Prices are subject to change without notice.
If a payment has already been received for an order that is subsequently varied or declined, we will issue a refund in the amount of the correction. Additional amounts in excess of what you have authorised will not be charged to your account without your express consent.
In the event that you receive faulty or incorrect product, we will make reasonable efforts to rectify the situation to your satisfaction.
PAYMENT POLICY & CONDITIONS
Unless otherwise indicated or arranged, all dollar amounts appearing on the Website are listed and invoiced in United States Dollars (USD). If your native currency is USD then it is unlikely that you will be charged any additional fees. A very small number of banks may charge a foreign merchant fee of 1-2% (approximately), which we do not receive - please check with your credit card issuer for further details. These and any additional bank and other charges associated with any payment to/from us are your responsibility.
Any other currency appearing on the site is for reference only using an approximate of the exchange rate at the time. In the case that your native currency is not USD, you should contact your credit card provider to calculate the exact figure to be charged to your account.
We accept most common credit cards via the Paypal gateway and all forms of PayPal payments. We only recognise the receipt of a payment when the full amount has been cleared and fully credited to our account. Some forms of payment i.e. eChecks, will require a clearance period.
By placing an order through the Website you agree to the submission of limited information to our payment gateways for the purpose of processing your payment. You also agree to adhere to all terms and conditions of use required by PayPal. For more information please visit https://www.paypal.com/.
SHIPPING & INSURANCE
Best Price Pets Pty Ltd ships the majority of orders within one business day of receipt of payment. If a delay in dispatch is experienced of more than 3 business days we will take reasonable steps to notify you and allow you to cancel or modify your order prior to shipment.
The majority of orders are shipped via Australia Post (www.auspost.com.au), which use the services of USPS to deliver within the United States. We reserve the right to use other delivery methods as deemed appropriate. Our Shipping and Returns page provides delivery guidelines for our various shipping options.
Shipping charges are automatically calculated and displayed at checkout, and may be based on total value, weight, and delivery method.
Our shipping includes insurance against loss, but items arriving damaged where a part or whole of the product is unusable will be replaced at our expense. Insurance and tracking information is the property of Best Price Pets Pty Ltd, and will be provided at our discretion.
Best Price Pets Pty Ltd will accept an insurance claim for an order once the order is 7 days past the last day of the delivery estimate provided by us. INSURANCE CLAIMS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED IF THE ORIGINAL SHIPPING ADDRESS INFORMATION WAS INCORRECT OR WE ARE NOT NOTIFIED OF THE ISSUE WITHIN 60 DAYS OF THE ORDER DATE.
We will investigate your order and provide a full refund including shipping charges or replacement subsequent to that investigation if we are unable to locate your order through the tracking information. In the event that your order arrives after an insurance claim has been settled, amounts equal to the original order price less shipping charges will become payable by you.
Where an order is returned to us by the postal service due to an incorrect address or non-collection by the customer, the shipping fee is non-refundable.
You agree to pay any additional import or customs duties incurred on your order as applicable. We are not currently aware of any duty for which a US citizen may be liable, however this may change. If you are concerned about the possibility of any additional charges please check with your local authority before placing an order. Orders will be sent with completed customs documentation attached. To the extent allowable by law you agree to indemnify us from any claim made by you or a third party in relation to the importation of your order.
RETURN & REFUND POLICY
Best Price Pets Pty Ltd offers a 60 day money-back guarantee on all non-clearance products (excluding Heartgard and Revolution due to customs restrictions), provided that the goods are returned in a saleable condition – being unused and in the original, undamaged packaging – and that the return procedure detailed below is followed. We reserve the right to charge a re-stocking fee of up to 10% in addition to the original shipping and insurance costs incurred by us(which may be more than the shipping charged to you). Furthermore, we reserve the right to refuse to accept a returned product if it is received damaged or incomplete, which we can return to you at your expense.
To arrange for the return of any items: you must contact us within the return period to obtain a Return Merchandise Authorisation (RMA) as well as our return shipping address. No responsibility will be taken for items returned without a RMA. We require that all items being returned are sent via Airmail or equivalent, and tracked or insured against loss.
Except in those instances in which we originally shipped damaged or incorrect product, you will be required to pay all shipping and insurance costs incurred in returning items. In the case of damaged products, a replacement for the damaged portion or a pro-rata refund will be issued.
Refunds will be provided in the same currency as originally billed i.e. USD. In the event that your native currency is not USD, we will not be liable for any difference between the refund amount and that originally charged due to movements in the currency exchange rate.
PRICE MATCH POLICY
We may agree to match any genuine competitor's offer on a total cost basis (including shipping, tax and other charges).
