You should read these terms of business carefully and in full before ordering any Goods from us via the Site. By ordering any of our Goods, you agree to be bound by these terms of business.

Please tick the tick box next to this link to the terms of business if you accept them. If you do not accept these terms of business, you will not be able to order any Goods from our site.

1.  Who we are

Some restrictions are placed on the extent to which we accept orders from specific countries (if at all).

3.  Who you are

By placing an order through the Site, you warrant to us that:

  • you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts;
  • you are at least 18 years old.

4.  Our contract

4.1  Once you have placed your order, we will send you an e-mail acknowledging receipt. Please note that this does not mean that we have accepted your order. Your order constitutes your offer to us to buy Goods from us. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm our acceptance by sending you an e-mail stating that the Goods have been dispatched (the “Dispatch Confirmation”). There will be no contract between us until we send you the Dispatch Confirmation. 

4.2  The contract between us will relate only to the Goods detailed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Goods which may have been part of your order until such time as the dispatch of those Goods has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.

5.  Our relationship with third parties

Where we provide links on the Site to the websites of other organisations, (whether affiliated with us or not), we cannot give any undertaking that any goods you purchase from third party sellers through the Site, or from companies to whose website we have provided a link on the Site, will be of satisfactory quality, and any such warranties are disclaimed by us absolutely. This disclaimer does not affect your statutory rights against the third party seller. If a third party is involved in a transaction, we will let you know. Please note that we may disclose your customer information related to that transaction to the third party seller.

6.  Fulfilment of your order

6.1  Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation. If the Dispatch Confirmation does not specify a delivery date, then your order will be fulfilled within 21 days of the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances

6.2   Please also see the Delivery Info section of the website, which will form part of these Terms and Conditions (though in the case of conflict, these Terms and Conditions take precedence).

7.  Risk and ownership

7.1  The Goods will be at your risk from the time of delivery.

7.2  Ownership of the Goods will not pass to you until we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the Goods (including any applicable delivery charges, etc).

8.  Price and payment

8.1   The price of any Goods will be as quoted on the Site from time to time in US Dollars (USD), except in cases of obvious error. 

8.2  The prices quoted are exclusive of VAT (though purchases from outside of Thailand are not subject to VAT) and delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due as detailed in the Delivery Info section of the Site.  The price will be FOB Bangkok, excluding transportation fees and shipping documents (GSP) – if you want these you will need to inform us.

8.3  We may change our prices at any time without prior notice (e.g. for reasons related to fluctuations in silver prices), but any changes we make will not apply to orders in relation to which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.

8.4   The Site refers to a large number of Goods and it is always possible that, despite our best endeavours, some of the Goods listed may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where the correct price of the Goods is less than our stated price we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Goods to you. If however the correct price of the Goods is higher than the price stated on the Site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Goods, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.

8.5  Please note that we are under no obligation to provide the Goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.

8.6  Goods must be paid for by either a bank transfer or credit card via Merchant iPay (payment method from Bangkok Bank).

8.7  Please also see the Buying and Payments section of the website, which will form part of these Terms and Conditions (though in the case of conflict, these Terms and Conditions take precedence).

9.  Our refunds policy

9.1   If you want to return Goods to us, you must inform us within 7 days of receipt of the defect (the receipt date will be that on the Airway Bill).

9.2   We will only accept returns of Goods should they not be as ordered or if there was a defect in the Goods when they were supplied (no other reasons will be accepted).

9.3  We will only deliver Goods to your address (as registered with us) and will not deliver directly to your customers.

9.4  The Goods must be in perfect condition as delivered (including no indications of use, scratches, marks, etc and be in the original packaging).
