We will charge your credit account for payment upon receipt of your order unless delivery cannot be fulfilled within 30 days. We accept no liability if a delivery is delayed because you did not give us the correct payment details.

Delivery charges vary according to the type of goods ordered.

10.2 You will be required to pay extra for delivery for some locations and it might not be possible for us to deliver to some locations.
10.3 We will deliver the goods to the address you specify for delivery in your order. It is important that this address is accurate.

Details of how to contact the courier to arrange a more suitable time to deliver will be on the card. After three failed delivery attempts the goods will be returned to us. We cannot accept any liability for any loss or damage to the goods once they have been delivered in accordance with your delivery instructions (unless this is caused by our negligence).

If delivery is delayed due to any cause beyond our reasonable control, the delivery date will be extended by a reasonable period and we will contact you to arrange an alternative time.
10.5 You will become the owner of the goods you have ordered when they have been delivered to you. Once goods have been delivered to you they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss or destruction.
11. Risk and ownership
Risk of damage to or loss of the goods passes to you at the time of delivery to you, or if you fail to take delivery at the agreed time, the time when we tried to deliver. You will only own the goods once they have been successfully delivered and when we have received cleared payment in full. Goods supplied are not for resale.
12. Acknowledgement and acceptance of your order
You will need to provide us with your e-mail address and we will notify you by e-mail as soon as possible to confirm receipt of your order and e-mail you again to confirm details. An acceptance of your order will take place on despatch of the good(s) ordered.
13. Cancellation rights and returns
13.1 Under the Distance Selling Regulations as a public consumer you have the legal right to cancel your order within seven days of receipt of your goods (with the exception of any made to order items or business to business transactions). You do not need to give us any reason for cancelling your contract nor will you have to pay any penalty, other than a 2.5% transaction fee to cover the costs of providing you with a full refund (excluding our delivery costs). However, you will need to notify us if you wish to cancel your contract.
13.2 If you have received the goods before you cancel your contract then you must send the goods back to our contact address at your own cost and risk. If you cancel your contract but we have already processed the goods for delivery you must not unpack the goods when they are received by you and you must send the goods back to us at our contact address at your own cost and risk delivered to us within 7 days of your original receipt.
13.4 Once you have notified us that you are cancelling your contract, any sum debited to us from your credit card will be re-credited to your account as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days of your order, less a 2.5% transaction fee to cover our costs for providing you with a full refund. Your refund will exclude our delivery costs.
13.5 You will be re-credited for the costs, including delivery, incurred in returning faulty or unsatisfactory goods.
13.6 Our business to business transactions returns policy is strictly as follows;
We believe that you will be delighted with your order but there may be occasions where you feel it necessary to return an item. These terms do not affect your statutory rights.
No returns will be accepted or processed without a Return Materials Authorisation (RMA) number being issued by Oneweigh Online Ltd. Goods are not supplied on a trial basis. Customers are responsible for verifying suitability and compatibility of goods BEFORE purchasing.
Your statutory rights under the 'The Sale of Goods Act 1979' (including amendments) are fully supported by Oneweigh Online Ltd. The 'Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000' do not apply to business purchases.
Returned, unwanted Stamped or Trade Approved scales attract a 20% restocking fee to cover the time and administrative costs in having them re-approved for a future customer. Charges relating to Calibration Certificates are not refundable for returns of unwanted goods.
For Unwanted Goods
If you are a business customer, you may return any unopened goods, in original condition, which can be sold again "as new", within 14 days after the day of receipt of the goods. Customers are responsible for the delivery costs of returning the goods. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a return.
You will be refunded in full (except for delivery charges) once the goods have been received and confirmed "as new". You will be liable for all administrative costs associated with the return of the goods, and this may well constitute a restocking fee which you will be advised of when arranging your return. Returns must be adequately packed and the RMA number clearly displayed without marking the original packaging.
We do not accept returns after 14 days from the day of receipt of goods, or on goods which have been opened and cannot be sold again "as new."
For Faulty Goods within 30 days
If there is a fault with your product you may return the product within 30 days of delivery for repair, replacement or refund. Please email our Customer Care department email@example.com to arrange a return.
Goods must be received by Oneweigh Online Ltd within 14 days of the RMA number being issued. Oneweigh will not be held liable for goods lost or damaged in transit. Customers are responsible for the delivery costs of returning goods. Any return found not to be defective or with faults caused by accident, neglect or misuse will incur a return freight charge.
When an item is to be replaced or refunded the goods must be in original packaging, and with all original boxes, packing materials, manuals, blank warranty cards and all other accessories and documentation provided by the manufacturer. Goods must be adequately packed and the RMA number clearly displayed without marking the original packaging.
Our promise to replace products or refund your money does not apply to faulty goods where the fault has been caused by accident, neglect or misuse.
For Faulty Goods more than 30 days
All products carry a twelve-month manufacturer warranty and in some specific cases more. Once your product is more than 30 days old (but within the manufacturer warranty) we will, in conjunction with the manufacturer, repair or replace it free of charge. It is solely at the discretion of Oneweigh Online Ltd as to whether a repair or replacement is provided. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org stating the reason for return, your order number, and request an RMA number. Our warranty is a 'back to base' system and therefore customers are responsible for the cost of returning goods to us.
This does not apply:
To faults caused by accident, neglect or misuse.
If you return the product to us without proof of purchase.
14. Cancellation by us
14.1 We reserve the right to cancel the contract between us if:

If you notify a problem to us under this condition, our only obligation will be, at your option:
15.1.1 To make good any shortage or non-delivery;
