Yes, it is! The seller collect credit card payments using popular and trusted services, usually PayPal, or the largest Italian banks. All of them use state-of-the-art SSL technology to encrypt your transaction and made it as safe as possible.
The seller does not collect or store your credit card data.
No, all prices are net. They do NOT include any local taxes, customs duties or shipping fees.
Local taxes and customs duties are so different country by country that no automatic processing is possible. If due, they must cleared by you (usually on behalf of the international courier delivering the goods at your door).
If you have a business in the European Community with a VAT code enabled to trans-national purchases (VIES), you won't be charged any additional tax. If your VAT code is not enabled to trans-national purchases (or you even have no VAT code), the Italian VAT amount will added to your order (and then you will ask for a refund to your local tax office).
In the bottom part of each sub-order you can see the payment method(s) associated with your customer profile (usually credit card or bank transfer). No other payment than those displayed is available.
If you are allowed to pay by bank transfer you can see the bank account data of the seller at the bottom of each sub-order.
Anyway, the payment of an order usually takes places later. Each seller will process your sub-order to find out the best and cheapest shipping fees. Later the seller will send you a message detailing the total order amount (merchandise and shipment). Typically this happens within 24/48 hours from your order during work days.
At that time you will have to pay the total amount to each seller, by credit card (simply clicking a link included in the order summary and in the order email notification) or by bank transfer.
Notice about bank transfer: the order will be processed for shipment ONLY when the funds will be actually received and confirmed by the bank of the seller.
If you are dissatisfied with the products, you purchased from a given seller you are entitled to returning the merchandise (or a part of it), and get a refund or a full product replacement. Such a situation can happen only when you reasonably see an evident difference between the product and its description supplied by the seller into this B2B platform or because there is a real and documented fault.
Please read the following points carefully:
- Before shipping back one, some or all the products you purchased, please contact the seller (and NOT the ItalianModa B2B Mall), detailing as precisely as possible the reason for your decision about returning the products, and sending to the seller clear pictures showing the damage. Generic or unreasonable reasons won't be accepted. This is a "Business-to-Business" transaction involving a wholesale sale.
- You will be able to return the products AFTER getting a written confirmation by the seller only. All the communications from the seller will be by E-Mail.
- The purchase amount will be refunded, not the shipping fees (or any customs duty/tax fee).
- The shipping for returning the merchandise must be paid by you.
- The products must be in perfect condition, not used, and delivered to the seller with their original package and labels/tags. If one of these conditions is not met, the seller won't be able to refund or replace the products.
- The seller will decide whether refunding or replacing the products you returned. In case of replacement, the shipping fees will be paid by the seller. If the replacement products are in stock, the whole process will take about seven (7) days or more. If they aren't available, the seller will let you know the estimated delivery time.
More points to remember:
- The products of the seller are usually packaged in sturdy boxes to prevent any reasonable damage during transportation. The seller is not responsible for any damage due to the shipper negligence or other external factors, though this is an extremely rare occurrence.
- All the products of the seller are carefully inspected before shipping. In the extremely rare case one or more products you received are broken or heavily damaged (not due to transportation issues. This means the original box and package must be intact), please take a few pictures clearly showing the damage and send them to the seller. If the damage is due to his fault, the seller will refund you or replace the products for free, including the shipping fees. The seller will be fully entitled to decide between refunding and replacing.
Orders are always shipped by a reliable international delivery service (for example DHL, UPS, FedEx, or others), trying to get the lowest rates.
The shipping cost is usually calculated AFTER receiving your order, within 24/48 hours, by each seller involved in your order.
In such a way each seller gets the lowest cost, enquiring the best delivery services. Then he will send you an E-Mail message (usually through this platform) with the updated summary of your order including the shipping cost. At that point, you will be able to pay the total amount by credit card (or bank transfer, if offered), following the clear directions sent by email and always available in the list of your orders placed through the Mall.
Shipping is NOT included in the price of products, unless of possible promotions.
After placing the order, you will receive an E-Mail message with the precise cost of the shipping, usually within 24/48 hours. After this, you will be able to pay the whole order amount (merchandise plus shipping) using one of the payment methods offered by the sellers (usually credit card via PayPal).
The shipping cost provided by each seller never includes possible customs duties and any other type of local taxes.
