Conditions of Sale

SERVED COUNTRIES

Artistii services can be used by any user resident in any country in the world, and purchased items can be sourced by artisans residing anywhere as well, but purchased items can currently be delivered only in certain European countries having an harmonized set of regulations, namely: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom.

PRICING

All prices are not inclusive of legally applicable VAT, until a shipping address is provided in Checkout.
Artistii will collect VAT from the customer at UK rates according to EU regulations for distance selling, if and only if both the artisan and the customer reside in the european served countries.
If you are required to pay VAT on one or more items, you will be notified during Checkout before you actually submit the order.
Please note that Artistii cannot collect VAT nor other duties for drop-shipped items sourced from countries out of the UE. Please refer to the Customs paragraph below.

AVAILABILITY

We list as available for purchase products that:

  • the source artisan has declared in stock;
  • are actually stocked at our warehouse;
  • the source artisan has declared to be able to craft on demand in a reasonable time (displayed on the product page).

Artistii will do its best to monitor and foresee the items availability, and give advice to the customer of possible shortage, but you are advised that information regarding the availability of a product comes directly from the artisan and is therefore subject to mismatch.
For this reason, Artistii will just book your money in escrow (see Payment below) when you confirm your order, and will send you two confirmation emails: one for the notification of order receipt, and the following for order acceptance (see Closing the contract below).

PAYMENT

We use a third party provider, PayPal, to provide secure online payment services. We will only book your money for payment until the closing of the contract (see below).
Use of PayPal is subject to PayPal’s own terms and conditions and privacy policy.  You can find out more about PayPal at their website http://www.paypal.co.uk.
We accept payments either in British Pounds (GBP) or Euros (EUR). Any money conversion will be operated by the customer's payment mean (either Paypal or the credit card charged by PayPal). Refer to PayPal information pages to understand how to select the entity that operates the money conversion.

SHIPPING AND HANDLING

Items are delivered to the address you provide: yours or a delivery address of your choice. 
Shipping times quoted are average times recorded and can vary depending on the destination and customs clearance procedures.
Items are delivered to the address you provide: yours or a delivery address of your choice.
Please note that unless otherwise stated on the website, delivery time estimates are just that. They are not guaranteed delivery times and should not be relied upon as such.

You can cancel the order the order is accepted by Artistii (see below).
When you submit the order, and no shipping choice was available at checkout (this may happen if items are sourced from remote countries or for unusual quantities), you will be asked to review your order and accept it as soon as we provide you a shipping quote.

CLOSING THE CONTRACT

Your order is an offer to us to buy the product(s) in your order.  When you place an order to purchase a product from our site, we will send you an email confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order (the "Order Confirmation E-mail").  The Order Confirmation E-mail is acknowledgement that we have received your order, but does not confirm acceptance of your offer to buy the product(s) ordered.  We only accept your offer, and conclude the contract of sale for a product ordered by you, when we obtain explicit or implicit confirmation of either item availability or commitment to production by the source artisan, therefore legally binding him/her to the sale, and then send a further e-mail confirmation to you  (the "Order Acceptance E-mail").   
When you submit an order, you agree to the settlement and delivery thereof as well as all of these Conditions of Sale without reserve, and you are bound to your offer of purchase.

  • Not defective items
    If you are in any way unhappy with your order you can return it within 14 calendar days from the day of delivery
