A. SHIPPING PRICES
"Transport price or cost" is considered the price of transporting orders and "shipping price or cost" is the sum of the total transport costs and associated expenses (eg customs expenses associated with export).
The shipping price (total sum of all costs associated with transport) is shown to the user in the "shopping cart" during the order and before the checkout process, so the user will always know the shipping cost before to choose the payment option.
Shipping costs are based on the weight of the packaged package, but some shipping companies may consider the volumetric weight, this will be considered whenever the volumetric weight exceeds the real weight. The calculation basis for the volumetric weight depends on the shipping company.
Purchasing some items may include handling and packaging costs. For some destinations the shipping cost also includes Customs charges requested by the shipping company.
Shipping costs include handling costs (if applicable), packaging (if applicable), customs export costs (if applicable) and shipping costs. Handling and packaging costs are fixed while transport costs depend on the weight or volume of the order, dimensions and geographic region of destination. Any export costs depend on the country of destination and are requested by the transport company.
The maximum dimensions allowed for shipments are defined by the transport companies that carry out the shipments, thus, the size of the order may prevent shipments to some destinations. If during the preparation of the order there is no option to choose the transport company, it means that due to its size, it is not possible to send the order to the user's destination through the transport companies used on this website. In this case, at the user's request, we will try to obtain a quote from another transport company. For this, the user must request this request through the contact email of this website.
Free shipping information associated with the shopping cart will only appear when placing the order, if your geographic region of residence/shipping is covered by free shipping from a certain order value. You will also have information on the order value needed to enjoy this free shipping.
B. ORDER AND PAYMENT
During the progress of the purchase process, purchases are made through the "Buy" button associated with each item. The item is automatically transferred to the "Shopping Cart" which is accessed via the respective "Link", here quantities can be changed, new items added or deletion of unwanted products.
The various payment options available are, electronic payment, payment by MB reference (to pay in ATM), payment by bank transfer or payment on delivery. Depending on the geographic area, some of these payment options may not be available. During the ordering process, the user will only see the form, or forms of payment available for his geographic area.
- "Electronic Payments" are processed via Paypal or credit card, the latter also through Paypal (see "Secure Payment").
- Payments by "MB Reference" are made using data from the entity, reference and amount payable sent to the user. In this payment option, the goods are dispatched only after payment verification.

- The "Cash on Delivery" payment is made to the transport company upon delivery (only made in Mainland Portugal, Madeira and the Azores).
Even if the user may have chosen payment on delivery and this form of payment is available for their geographic area, the owner of this domain may, if he so wishes, request full or partial advance payment for the product ordered before shipping the goods and it is up to to the owner of this domain and only this one, the decision to request one of the prepayment options before sending the order to a particular customer.
