Terms & Conditions
For projects over $10,000, we require 50% deposit before proceeding with manufacturing, and balance is due when the goods are ready to be shipped. For smaller projects, full payment is required before dispatch. Our quotes are exclusive of GST and GST is added to the quote as a claimable item. Products manufactured overseas are subject to foreign exchange fluctuations and any negative fluctuations beyond 2% in the A$/US$ will be applied to the unpaid amounts.
Payments can be made via direct deposit (EFT) and credit card. A 2% surcharge applies to Visa, Mastercard and American Express payments. Diners Club is not accepted. You acknowledge and agree that we do not have any responsibility or have any control over any third party merchant facilities. You acknowledge and agree that we will not be liable for any loss or damage arising out of their use of a third party payment gateway. We advise that you should read and understand the terms and conditions of the third party merchant facilities before using them.
You acknowledge and agree that some banks and financial institutions may charge you an additional fee for international transactions
Delivery time depends upon which freight method you choose for your delivery. Depending upon which country the goods are sourced from, it may take 15 to 40 days for sea freight, and from a few days to up to 10 days by air freight.
Our indent quotes are based on full quantity delivered at single location in Australia, unless otherwise specified. We can also arrange national distribution, which needs to be pre-planned and agreed in advance including any charges associated with such delivery. There may be additional charges if a sample is required with your logo for your approval before full production. For a shorter turnaround on delivery, we may require approval based on a mock-up. For stock items, printing and delivery charges may be in addition to the price range indicated.
You acknowledge and agree that products offered for sale on the site are directed solely at Australia residents. We make no representation that any products sold through the site are appropriate or available for use outside Australia. You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the products are destined. Please be advised that some products may not be deliverable overseas due to local law and it shall be your responsibility for any failure to deliver the Items overseas due to local law. We will not be liable for any breach by you of any laws.
As with any business, there may be external factors outside of our control that may delay the production and delivery of goods (weather, natural disasters, war, etc., or delay by freight companies or import procedures). In such cases, if possible, we will work with our clients to find a most suitable solution, which may include moving manufacturing to another factory/facility, or changing delivery method, whichever the case may be.
All products offered for sale are subject to available stock. If a product is out of stock, we will contact you to offer a substitute product of at least equal quality. If you do not accept a substitute product and your credit card has been charged for the product that is out of stock, we will cancel your order and issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount charged.
|As most products are manufactured overseas and then shipped to Australia, there may be charges for bringing-in samples. The cost is based on the product cost and air-freight courier charges and may include our initial efforts to bring that product sample to you. In general, our sample charges generally start at A$100, which is later adjusted against the final invoice.|
While most standard products are covered by their manufacturer's warranty, customised and modified items may be subject to special conditions. Products are supplied based on usual 2-5% defect rate which is as per promotional products industry norm. If the defect rate is higher, we will work with the manufacturer to negotiate a resolution. Final delivery may contain +/- 5% quantity.
If a product supplied is not as described, we may, at our own discretion, choose to offer a replacement product, or offer to remake the product, or choose to offer partial or full refund depending on the situation and product.
As we supply customised promotional products, products cannot simply be returned and refunded, as these cannot be resold to other clients if these have been decorated with client logo/design. APD Promotions will negotiate mutually acceptable solution in such cases by offering either a repair or replacement of the products.
In an unlikely event of a claim, only a written claim is acceptable and must be made within seven days of delivery. All claims and returns will only be found acceptable if a fault is found in the product. Faulty goods must be returned so they can be inspected. Once the goods are inspected a repair, replacement or refund will be issued at our discretion if the claim is found to be justified. Our maximum liability is limited to the total value of the faulty goods and we are not liable for any consequential losses including delay in delivery or breakages during transportation.
The price ranges shown against each item on this site are indicative only and are based on large quantity orders and must not be considered as the final or quoted price. Majority of prices quoted on our website are based on order value of $20,000 or above (unless otherwise specified). There are a number of factors that decide the final landed price of an item, such as quantity ordered, specifications, delivery timeline, time of the year, FX rates etc.
Under no circumstances shall APD Promotions be responsible for any direct or indirect loss incurred to anyone due to the information provided on this site. Product features listed against each item are as per claims from their manufacturers/suppliers. It is buyers responsibility to test product before making a final purchase.
While APD Promotions take every care in finding the right supplier for its client's need, clients should be aware of various risks associated with overseas sourcing as there are numerous external factors that can impact product delivery & timelines. We source products according to client requirements, and these should be clearly specified by client before production samples are supplied. It is therefore the client's responsibility to ensure product compliance according to their needs and their market requirements.
Where client requires certain regulatory standards to be met, or certain compliance to be obtained by APD Promotions, this must be specified before production samples are produced, for which additional charges may need to be paid by the client. These conditions must be accepted by all clients before placing an order with us. When using our service, it shall automatically imply that you accept our Terms & Conditions.
