Terms and Conditions
Prices are listed by item number and priced in US dollars. Prices are subject to change without notice.
MINIMUM ORDER REQUIREMENT
Initial Order-$500 Reorders-$350. Orders below minimum are assessed a $25.00 Below-Minimum Fee. Please note: Product(s) cannot be added to previous orders in-house to increase size of order to exceed the minimum.
We accept Visa, Master Card, American Express and Discover cards from the Customer. We will not accept payment by credit cards of third parties.
First orders are accepted on a prepaid or credit card basis. Prepaid orders require a wire transfer (our preferred method) or a check delivered prior to shipping. Credit card orders require the account name, account number, expiration date, card verification code or value (CVC or CVV), and billing address. Credit card is charged at time of shipment.
NET 30 TERMS
The privilege of net 30 terms is available for second and subsequent orders, and is offered to customers who have submitted a satisfactory and approved credit application with references. Net 30, according to our interpretation, means payment is due within 30 days of the invoice date. Any past due balance will be assessed an annual finance charge of 18%. Future in-house orders will not be released for shipment until all past due balances are paid in full, including finance charges. Should it become necessary to refer the account balance to a licensed collection agency or attorney for legal action, all subsequent charges and legal fees shall be paid by the applicant.
INTERNATIONAL & PROFORMA ORDERS
All international orders are sold on ‘Ex-works’ basis. Customers should make all shipping arrangements with their own freight forwarders-we do not ship outside the US, nor do we drop ship to Canada or Mexico in business-to-customer orders. A 50% deposit on the order value (including freight) will reserve product on international orders. Order will be picked, packed and shipped when inventory value on hand reaches the deposit amount. Customer will be notified of remaining balance and, when these funds are received, the balance of the order will begin to be prepared for shipment. To avoid sales tax on international orders, a valid proof of export is necessary and must be received by Global Views within 30 days of invoice date. All goods exported to Mexico through the Border States (TX, NM,AZ and CA) should use the BORDER STATES UNIFORM SALE FOR RESALE CERTIFICATE in lieu of proof of export documents. Proforma orders are considered ‘on hold for confirmation’ until a deposit is received. Payments on international orders can be made by credit card or bank transfer of funds. Orders paid by wire transfer will be charged a $30.00 bank service fee. International orders paid by credit card are not subject to any additional service fees. International Canceled orders that have been packed are subject to a 25% restocking fee.

Custom Orders are quoted at a higher price than the rate for quantity orders.

Once production has started, a Custom Order cannot be canceled.
