WHOLESALE TERMS AND CONDITIONS

*Note - Scroll down for updated payment terms - July 2016*

 

 

MINIMUM QUANTITIES

Minimum order quantities and minimum order value apply for wholesale orders as well as custom projects. Please refer to our wholesale price list for information on each product, as pack sizes vary.

 

FREIGHT

We ship primarily via Australia Post, Fastways or Couriers Please to get you the best rates. Freight is not included in our product pricing, instead it is calculated and applied to your final invoice based on weight and dimensions to get you the best rate, before payment and dispatch.

For international orders we will send you a freight quote before your order is shipped.

In-stock items usually ship within 3 business days of payment receipt. If you place an order that contains both backorder and in-stock items, the order will be automatically split to ship in-stock items immediately. Products not available will be placed on backorder and dispatched once back in stock. Shipping fees apply to each separate order. 

 

RETURNS & CANCELLATIONS

Return of faulty items must occur within 5 days of receiving them. To report a broken item, please notify us with details and an image to marketing@vinotopia.com.au, and also provide us with your invoice number. 

If your order for some reason does not make it to you, please notify us immediately.

Orders are final and cannot be cancelled once the order has been confirmed and the final invoice has been generated.

We do not accept return of unsold goods, change of mind or preference.

 

ORDER DISPATCH

We try to ship your order out as soon as possible. In-stock items will usually ship within 3 business days (after receipt of 50% deposit).

 

PRICES

Prices shown on order forms are exclusive of GST. We reserve the right to alter our pricing at any time, unless already invoiced.

The RRP for each product is listed on our website (www.vinotopia.com.au) and on our price list.

Stockists are free to set their pricing as they see fit, but we ask that the products do not retail under the RRP unless they are marked as being on sale.

 

DISTRIBUTION

Vinotopia products may not be distributed through any online marketplace, including eBay, Etsy etc. Selling Vinotopia products on these marketplaces breaches our distribution policy and is not allowed.

 

PAYMENT TERMS

Vinotopia is a small business, please be nice and pay your bills on time, as we really don't want to have to chase you for payment! :)

50% deposit is due upon invoice receipt before dispatch, with the remaining 50% due within 10 days of invoice date to avoid late payment fees ($25). 

As an incentive for timely payment, we offer 2.5% off the product value or 4.5% store credit of the product value for your next order if the invoice is paid in full upon invoice receipt.

We accept Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) or Visa/Mastercard. EFT is the preferred method of payment as fees will be added on to credit card orders. We do not accept AmEx for wholesale orders.

Please always state your invoice number as the payment reference when paying via EFT, and send us a remittance advice as a proof of payment so we can dispatch your goods. 

Overdue payments will incur a late payment fee of $25 after 10 business days past invoice date that will automatically be added.

Should a payment be later than 30 days and no successful attempt have been made for amicable solution, the overdue payment will be collected via NSW court order or via a debt collector. The final amount to be covered by the debtor will include late payment fees of $25 per month of outstanding payment plus court order / debt collection fees as well as any other fees associated with the recovery of the outstanding payment.

Different payment terms apply for custom orders, depending on the type of project.
