In these Terms and Conditions of Sale (“Conditions of Sale”), “we” or “us” means Home Basics Inc. and “you” means the person, organization or entity that purchased the products or related services from us.

Please read through these Conditions of Sale carefully as they form the agreement under which we will supply products and services to you. These Conditions of Sale apply to all sales made by us to consumers whether products and services are purchased online or over the telephone.

  1. Orders

1.1 You may place an order with us over the telephone or by completing and submitting to us an online order form on our website. We may at our discretion accept or reject an order depending on a variety of factors, such as availability of the ordered products or our ability to validate payment for the products. You must not order products or services from us if you are under eighteen (18) years of age. We may, at our discretion, treat any order by a person under eighteen (18) years old as void.

1.2 Please choose your products carefully. Prices can change and so you should check the latest price on our website or confirm the price with our sales team on the phone before placing your order. It is your responsibility to check the order (including all pricing and product information) before you complete the online checkout process or before you place your telephone order.

1.3 We will let you have an “order reference number” via a confirmation email or over the phone once your checkout process or phone order is complete. However, if you are paying by credit card, debit card, EFT or Paypal, we will not complete your order until your payment has passed our internal validation procedures. Once your payment has been validated, we will process your order and let you have an order reference number. Please keep your order reference number safely.

1.4 Once we have given you an order reference number, a binding agreement will come into existence between you and us and only these Conditions of Sale will apply in relation to the supply of the ordered products. Subject to clause 2, no changes to these Conditions of Sale will be effective unless we both agree to the changes in writing. If you wish to cancel your order, we ask that you advise us at least one (1) business day before your planned delivery date and you will receive a full refund subject to these Conditions of Sale.
