Acceptance or rejection of an order
In certain circumstances, we may need to reject your order. This may happen where the requested Product is not available or if there is an error in the price or the product description posted on the Site. Each order placed for Products through the Site that we accept results in a separate binding agreement between you and us for the supply of those Products.For each order accepted by us, we will:
- supply the Products in that order to you in accordance with these terms and conditions; and
- provide you with an email confirmation of that order.
At Fat Shack Vintage we aim to only offer products for online sale where the products are readily available to ship. This means that it is either in stock at our Melbourne facility or there is a lead time to transfer the stock from one of our local Australian suppliers to our distribution facility in Melbourne for despatch to customers. If it is already known that an item is not readily available to ship and there is an extended lead time, we will provide lead time information on that items listing for you to view prior to placing your order. We request that you ensure you visit our website to view the item/s listing in question for further up to date lead time information should you require it.
From time to time however, you may pay for an item or items that are unexpectedly not readily available for immediate shipping and there is an extended lead time. This is the nature of supply and demand of fast moving goods. If this happens, our Customer Service Team will notify you as soon as possible to let you know that the item/s are to be placed into our back order system. We will also provide you with an estimated lead time to obtain more stock of the back ordered item/s. All lead times are approximate.
If after receiving advice from our Customer Service Team you opt to wait until the back ordered item/s are available, we request that you ensure you visit our website to view the item/s listing in question for further up to date lead time information should you require it.
Once all items in your order are available, we will ship your order in its entirety.
We also understand that you may not always wish to wait for an item/s where they are not readily available for shipment. If you wish to cancel such an order, you can do so while the order is still in our back order system by contacting us and we will refund the amount that you paid for the product. Alternatively you may choose to split your order into separate shipments. If you wish to separate shipments then a further freight charge will apply. Please contact us for freight calculations.
