PURCHASE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
ProduceShop sincerely suggest every respected customer to read the following regulations carefully before purchase.
If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, you can return the product and get a refund or exchange the product for another one, be it similar or not.
According to the Italian Legislative Decree No. 206/2005, for distance contracts and contract proposals, or those negotiated away from business premises, consumers shall be entitled to a period of ten business days to withdraw from a contract without being liable to any penalty and without giving any reason. You just have to follow these simple steps:
2. ANY PRODUCT YOU RETURN MUST BE IN THE SAME CONDITION YOU RECEIVED IT AND IN THE ORIGINAL PACKAGING. ITEMS MUST BE RETURNED WITH ALLA ORIGINAL TAGS AND OTHER ACCESSORIES (USER MANUALS, CABLES, ETC.). ITEMS MUST BE UNUSED AND UNWASHED;
3. Please note that return shipping charges are the responsibility of the customer. We cannot accept returns or exchanges for items that are worn, used, or items that have been washed, damaged, or otherwise altered. ProduceShop is not responsible for any items that we do not receive or that is not returned for refund or exchange in accordance with the terms of our return policy. If the returned goods are not in fully resalable condition or the packaging of the article is damaged, we reserve the right to refuse reimbursement or deduct up to 25% of the original selling price of the reimbursement.
4. To get a refund, please choose one of the following options:
a) Replacement of returned goods;
b) Refund (subject to deductions).
Due to logistical reasons, products must be returned only by courier. We are ore of the few online companies able to ensure transparency. In fact, we point out any problems that may occur (even if such cases are relatively rare) so as to avoid misunderstandings. We are honest and fair in all aspects of our business, unlike other online resellers. We maintain high standards of excellence to ensure maximum quality in each of the products bearing our name.
When using courier services, a shipping insurance allows you to safely send your parcels abroad. Insuring your parcel is definitely beneficial, regardless of the types of items you are sending. ProduceShop offers you many options for cheap courier insurance, so you will worry less about the safety of your parcels.
Upon goods arrive at their destination and before confirming your compliance, you should always check the state of goods from the outside looking for signs of damage. Any goods damage with visible external signs must be always declared immediately upon arrival. Any damage, or discrepancy in the number of packages or other details must be reported immediately to the courier making the delivery. In these circumstances the goods should be “ACCEPTED WITH RESERVE”, writing a note to this effect on the courier’s shipping documents only (and not on any other document). Examples of such notes are “Accepted with reserve to check the box which has a hole on one side”, “Packaging opened” or “Packaging, tape or strapping damaged”. If the product is clearly damaged or the courier refuses the reserve note on the shipping documents, the customer should refuse the product and write on the document “Package refused because visibly damaged” or “Package refused because the courier will not accept the reserve note”.
Once the courier’s document has been signed, the customer can make no further claims regarding the appearance and condition of the goods delivered. By accepting goods without reserve the customer therefore foregoes the possibility of making any claims, complaints or requests for substitution of the goods delivered.
Shipping rates are calculated based on the zip/postal code of where the order is being shipped to. Such amounts will be notified to customers by our customer service following order confirmation.
Items are usually delivered from Monday to Friday, over the whole day, to street level, unless an additional service has been added to the shipment, which entails delivery at a given time, or according to given specifications.
Customers are responsible for checking their confirmation e-mail at the time of placing their order. If you need to update an address, or change a delivery date please contact us at least 2 business days before the order is set to ship. Customers must give ProduceShop a time to act upon this request. We cannot guarantee change of address or delivery day if the request is made closer to the ship date than this.
A fee is assessed for all types of requests. ProduceShop is not responsible for delays in transit caused by address modification.
N.B. ProduceShop is not responsible for refunds or replacements of orders with incomplete, invalid, or incorrect addresses/telephone numbers. The customer is responsible for checking their address/telephone number in the confirmation e-mail at the time of placing their order. We are not able to reship packages that are returned to us by the carrier. Please take this into consideration when selecting your shipping address/telephone number for an order.
The carrier makes up to three delivery attempts, excluding weekends and holidays. If the third and final delivery attempt has been made, and the driver was unable to leave your package, the courier reserves the right to return the package to the shipper.
If so, ProduceShop will get in touch with the customer to seek a solution as soon as possible.
The carrier will hold your shipment for seven business days. If the customer does not answer our e-mails or phone calls and the shipment is not picked up, it will be returned to the sender. Please note that ProduceShop will not cover return shipping costs.
As for all websites, the size of a product is given by measuring the outer parts of the same.
Patio umbrella size is determined in width “not” height. To find the correct measurements, measure the distance between the top of the rib arm and the bottom of the rib arm. Then simply multiply that by two, which will give you the correct size.
Great product images are an important part of running an online store. That's why all pictures are always taken in a professional photo studio by our extremely talented staff of photographers. Each photo on ProduceShop website is a representation of the actual product. We always display product images as accurately as possible. The colour in the image does not vary for the actual colour of the product. Colour accuracy and consistency are always a priority for ProduceShop.
With a negative feedback or review, an e-mail deemed to be offensive by our customer service or a dispute on PayPal, customers express their willingness to accept the goods received, to permanently finalise any ongoing transaction, and to exempt the company from the resolution of any problem that occurred during sales transaction.
Before leaving a negative feedback or opening a dispute on PayPal, we therefore suggest you to contact us by phone or e-mail to try and solve the problem.
