For each product you order through the Site, you agree to pay the price applicable for the product (including any sales taxes, surcharges and any delivery fees for the delivery service you select) as of the time you submitted the order. Unless we have agreed to an alternate billing arrangement in writing signed by Us, we will automatically bill your credit card or other account submitted, via the Payment Processor, as part of the order process for such price. All prices are non-refundable.

We use a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to process your payments. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor in addition to this Agreement. We are not responsible for error by the Payment Processor.

Payment Processor & Third-Party Services

We partner with PayPal and Westpac Payway to facilitate card payments and other payments by buyers .

For example, PayPal is a third-party service provided by PayPal Holdings Inc. and is subject to the PayPal User Agreement. If we receive notice that a listing or transaction violates a third party’s service agreement, we may have to take action against your account, such as cancelling a transaction,
