    11. Payment conditions

    As a standard procedure, the Seller requires a 100% down payment with a credit card or by wire transfer.

This is not applicable to those purchasing from the public “Outlet”, as no invoice will be issued.

    All invoices are emailed from Seller’s email system to the registered Customer after the respective order is created. Public “Outlet” Customers will receive an emailed receipt. In order to make sure that all invoices reach the correct contact person of the Customer, it is the responsibility of the Customer to inform the Seller immediately of any changes in contact details for emailing invoices in electronic format.
