VLP will always try and make sure that all prices, descriptions, sizing and details which appear on this Website are correct however, errors sometimes occur. If we discover an error in the price of any goods which have been ordered you will be informed of this as soon as possible and given the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling the order. If we are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the goods, you will receive a full refund. Delivery costs will be charged in addition; such additional charges are clearly displayed where applicable and included in the 'Total Cost'.

The issuer of your credit or debit card may charge you a fee for currency conversion or any other fees relating to the purchase. You should check with your bank or the company that issues the credit or debit card for details of any such fees.

Where you order goods to the value of 1 dollar;1,000 or more, including where you place multiple orders that are dispatched simultaneously and arrive in Australia at or around the same time, you may be liable for GST.

Even though we may use a local billing agent to invoice and collect payment for the goods you purchase you will be responsible for importing any goods you purchase from us into your country, and any shipping we provide is on your behalf. 

c.     Discount Codes

Discount codes are non-transferable and there is no cash alternative. Furthermore, they cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion code or offers, and must be redeemed by the date published, if provided.

d.     Gift Vouchers

You may purchase gift vouchers and gift cards for use on the Site by you or other Customers. Gift vouchers will be sent by email.

Gift vouchers and gift cards cannot be used to buy further gift vouchers or gift cards. Gift vouchers and gift cards may only be purchased through debit or credit card or Paypal.

The credit of a gift voucher or a gift card does not accrue interest nor does it have a cash value.

If the credit of a gift voucher is insufficient for the Order you wish to make, you may make up the difference through payment by other means (but not by using another promotional voucher or attempting to rely on any other offer). For the avoidance of doubt, gift cards are an acceptable form of payment in these circumstances.

Please note that only one gift voucher can be used per order, and that gift vouchers cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer (including but not limited to, sales and other promotions).

Note that vouchers and gift cards are applied to invoices as a whole. Accordingly, in circumstances where multiple items are purchased using a voucher or gift card, and one or more items is returned, the discount is applied on a pro rata basis to each item for the purpose of establishing refund values. For the avoidance of doubt, gift vouchers, promotional vouchers and gift cards cannot, under any circumstances, be redeemed for cash. 

If you need a refund, this will be made in the same way as the original payment method. For example, if the payment was made from the gift voucher VLP will credit the gift voucher.

e.     Payment

We have a billing agent that will invoice and collect payment for the goods you are purchasing on our behalf, you will see their name on your invoice and on your transaction history if you pay by credit or debit card. Please contact us if you have any questions about invoicing and payment for goods.

When VLP receives your order, our appointed billing agent carries out a standard pre-authorisation check on your credit or debit card to make sure that there are sufficient funds to fulfil the transaction. Goods will not be dispatched until this pre-authorisation check has been completed. Your card will be debited once your payment has been approved.
