The price of any Products will be as quoted on our Website in Australian dollars from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
These prices include GST.
Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent a Dispatch Confirmation.
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products that we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our despatch procedures so that, where the Products' correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Products to you. If the Products' correct price is higher than the price stated on our Website, we will either contact you for your instructions before shipping the Product or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
