The QVS website contains a large number of products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products listed on the Website may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures prior to acceptance of an order so that, where a product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the product to you. If a product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our Website We may at our discretion reject your order without liability to you and notify you of such rejection
QVS are under no obligation to supply products to you at an incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an order preparation confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
Ownership of the products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the products, including delivery charges.
All transactions are in pounds sterling and paid via PayPal to the email address designated at the time of concluding payment.
One of the most effective ways to protect yourself from identity theft is to keep your personal and financial information as private as possible. A unique benefit of paying with PayPal is that QVS receive your payment without ever needing to see your financial details
All relevant delivery details can be found here.
We endeavour to process and despatch orders within 24 hours of receipt Monday to Friday. No orders are despatched at Weekends and Bank Holidays. Once your order has been despatched we will email to you confirmation of despatch and the relevant carrier/tracking details. Please ensure you use the tracking details on-line to check the status of your order before contacting us for the status, as we can only check the same information that you will already have access to on the carrier's website.
If after checking the status of your order delivery on-line you are experiencing an unsatisfactory delay or you require assistance in resolving a pending delivery problem then by all means contact us on email@example.com with your order number and contact details including a telephone contact number.
If an item is held at the post office or carrier depot awaiting collection and it has not been subsequently collected, or if a delivery is refused and then returned to us then a £6.00 charge will apply for returning the goods to us.
Your right to cancel
Unless the products are subject to Special Terms and Conditions of Sale containing provisions to the contrary in relation to those products you may cancel your order at any stage prior to dispatch and within 7 days after dispatch.
We aim to process your order for despatch to you within 1 working day of receiving it. Consequently, even if you do cancel your order shortly after placing it, it is possible that we may be unable to prevent products you have ordered being dispatched to you and you will need to return them to us at your own cost once the goods arrive with you or opt to refuse the delivery. If you cancel an order after the goods have already been delivered you will be liable to pay the return costs.
To cancel your order before dispatch, you must notify us in by email on firstname.lastname@example.org. To cancel your order after delivery you must notify us in writing within 7 days of receipt of your order by email on email@example.com.
All goods must be returned unused, undamaged, in the original packaging and at your own cost. If returning goods it is your responsibility to insure sufficient insurance against damage/loss in transit. A full refund within 7 days of receipt of the returned goods subject to inspection. Where an order delivery exceeded more than one parcel and the customer has only been charged for one delivery as part of a special delivery offer we are entitled to redeem the cost of sending all parcels if the order is cancelled and goods returned.
Faulty, Incorrectly Supplied and Damaged Items
If the products are faulty, incorrect or damaged on delivery, we will either replace or exchange any such products, or, refund to you the price paid including all delivery charges provided you have not used the goods and notify us of the fault, mistake or damage ASAP. Please inspect all items purchased prior to use and if you notice a fault or damage of any kind then please do not use the items and notify us in writing within 7 days of receipt of goods. If any item is found to be faulty in anyway during inspection and you then go on to use the item this will make any warranty void and regretfully we will not be able to offer a replacement or refund. To resolve a reported fault issue, we may in the first instance ask for pictures of relevant packaging and/or products to be taken and uploaded to us for inspection before determining what action to be taken on our part for reasonable and proper resolution.
If a return is authorised then the faulty, incorrect or damaged products will be collected by a carrier booked by us on a working day mutually agreed between you and us. We can agree a day for the collection but not a specific time in the day. Should the carrier not be able to collect the goods on arrival on the agreed day then any subsequent chargeable attempts to collect will be paid for by you.
