If we are unable to contact you, the order will be treated as cancelled and if you have already paid for the product(s) you will receive a full refund.

We are under no obligation to sell the product(s) to you at the incorrect (lower) price (even after we have sent you a Shipment Confirmation) if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognized by you as such. All prices are exclusive of shipping charges and sales tax (if applicable). The total cost of the order is the price of the product(s) ordered plus the delivery charge and sales tax (if applicable). Prices may change at any time.

Sales tax is charged (if applicable) according to the shipping address of your order as required by applicable regulations.

We will try to contact you via email before then, but in case there is no answer the order will be cancelled.

If you choose to pay with a Purchase Order or Bank Transfer, it is necessary to attach them via e-mail at bulkorders@esaspaceshop.com specifying your name and the Order Number in the Subject, for it to be processed. No order is worked if the PO or Bank Transfer are not validated first.
