Terms & Conditions
We do not consider a quotation as an obligation to sell, but only an invitation to buy. Therefore, no contractual relationship between the buyer(s)/customer(s) and Absolute exists until Absolute accepts the buyer(s)/customer(s) order in writing and/or accepts a deposit / payment to proceed to supply the products. The delivery fee in the quotation is a reference only and will be confirmed at time of actual order. We do not hold stock for the customer(s) by quotations, thus stock of the items in quotation is guaranteed only when a deposit received.
Written purchase and/or deposit is confirmation of your order and bound to Absolute Terms and Conditions. Payments through Visa, MasterCard, American Express and UnionPay. American Express payments incur a 1.75% surcharge (excl. GST), UnionPay payments incur a 1.76% surcharge (incl. GST). Direct deposit is accepted.
When a deposit received, a contract has been entered and Absolute has the right to retain all or part of the deposit if the buyer(s)/customer(s) cancels the order. Depending on time spent on the transaction and work involved, situation may vary, so as to compensate Absolute for the costs incurred.
Absolute reserves the right to cancel an order, retain the deposit received and resell the items if the buyer(s)/customer(s) breaches the terms and conditions of this agreement. All goods remain the property of Absolute until they are fully paid.
