We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason or to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any item.

Out-of-Stock Products – Back Orders

We regularly stock every item we carry. However, there may be times when the product you have ordered is out-of-stock which will delay fulfilling your order. In this case, we will mark the product “out of stock” on our website. We will keep you informed of any products that you have ordered that are out-of-stock and unavailable for immediate shipment. You may cancel your order at any time prior to shipping.

Multiple Product Orders

For a multiple product order, we will make every attempt to ship all products contained in the order at the same time. Products that are unavailable at the time of shipping will be shipped as they become available, unless you inform us otherwise. You will only be charged for products contained in a given shipment, plus any applicable shipping charges. You will only be charged for shipping at the rate quoted to you on your purchase receipt. The entirety of this shipping charge may be applied to the first product(s) shipped on a multiple shipment order.

Payment – Credit Cards and Paypal

We accept the following credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. You may also make payment(s) via PayPal. There is no surcharge for using your credit card to make purchases. Please be sure to provide your exact billing address and telephone number (i.e. the address and phone number your credit card bank has on file for you). Incorrect information will cause a delay in processing your order. Your credit card will be billed upon shipment of your order.

Typographical and Computer Errors

We work very hard to eliminate store errors and provide the most updated product information and pricing. With thousands of products and SKUs everything will not be 100% perfect. In the event a product is listed at an incorrect price due to typographical, computer error, or error in pricing information received from our suppliers, we have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for product listed at the incorrect price. We have the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, we will immediately issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the incorrect price. If you feel the pricing is incorrect after you placed an order, please send your order number and contact information to us. We will do our best within reasonable efforts to resolve any site errors. If we can’t resolve the situation, we will request you return the unused & undamaged product in the original packaging to us within 5 business days and we will provide a refund.

Pricing is Subject to Change without Notice

We work with many manufacturers and carry thousands of products. The manufacturers determine when to change prices. Sometimes we have timely notice of pricing changes and sometimes we do not. Price updates are a continual process and products can price at any time. We will always do our best to update product prices to ensure a quality and reliable experience from our company.
