INTERNATIONAL TERMS OF SALE
As used in these Terms of Sale “Global-e”, “we”, "our" or "us" means the applicable Global-e Contracting Party (as defined below). Global-e is the sales facilitation and e-commerce partner of the brand or retailer operating this e-commerce web-store (“Store Owner” and “Store”, respectively), where the products or services were made available to you for purchase through the checkout ("Product"). The Store Owner has an agreement with Global-e allowing Global-e to act as the merchant of record, in Global-e’s name and on behalf of the Store Owner.
By placing your order to purchase one or more Products (each, an “Order”) through the checkout, you confirm that you have read and understood these Terms of Sale and the Privacy and Cookies Policy (which is available on the checkout) (together, “Terms”) in their entirety, and you agree to be bound by them. These Terms define your legal relationship regarding the checkout, the placement of Orders, and the purchase of Products underlying such Orders.
If you do not agree to the Terms, please do not complete your Order.
These Terms are entered into force in the English language and governed by it. You agree that any translation, if provided, is available for your convenience only (unless otherwise required by applicable law).
The "Global-e Contracting Party" under these Terms is the entity which will invoice you for the purchase of the Product as listed on your invoice and in the Contact Us page on the checkout. For details and contact information of Global-e Contracting Party please refer to the “Contact Us” page on check out.
1. Placing Your Order
Placing Orders through the checkout is reserved exclusively for individuals purchasing Products for their own personal use (“Consumers”).
By placing an Order, you represent and warrant that (i) the Order and purchase of Products thereunder is strictly and solely for your personal use, and not for resale, distribution or any other commercial activities; and (ii) you are legally capable (in terms of age and mental capability) of entering into binding contracts per the local legal requirements in the place where you reside.
Orders are placed through the checkout by clicking on the “Place Order” button (or similar button). The checkout displays the Products you purchase, the price thereof, international delivery costs and fees (“Delivery Costs"), any applicable import or sales taxes (such as Value Added Tax, Goods and Services Tax, Consumption Tax), and, if available for pre-payment, import duties, tariffs and similar costs and fees that may be imposed by the delivery destination (collectively, "Duties and Taxes"). Please make sure you review your Order carefully, identify and correct any input errors prior to placing your Order.
As we offer you the option to purchase the Products in your local or chosen currency, the price of the Products may change from time to time due to exchange rate fluctuations. However, the price, Delivery Costs and Duties and Taxes (if available for pre-payment) of the Products you purchase, will be those that were displayed to you on the checkout at the time you actually placed your Order.
The checkout page will specify the payment methods available for your Order. The availability of such payment methods is dependent on your geographical location.
You acknowledge and agree that: (i) Global-e will use one of its third party payment processors providers ("Payment Processor") to process your payment (while Global-e is acting as the merchant of record), using the payment method you have selected on checkout and it may use the tools, technology or the services of the Payment Processors to process the transaction on its behalf; and (ii) you will provide valid and current information about yourself.
If the payment method you selected for the Order supports pre-authorization mechanism (e.g. most credit/debit cards), then when you place the Order, the applicable amount will only be authorized, and you will be charged on the earliest of up to 5 days as of date of Order or once the Product has been dispatched to you.
If the payment method you selected does not support pre-authorization mechanism, the charge will be immediate upon placing the Order (noting however that specific payment methods may support a different timing and we may not know or be in control over such timing, if applicable. Please check your selected payment method’s terms of service for more details). Please note that you will be charged the full Order amount even if the Order will be dispatched in parts or if it is a ‘pre-order’ or similar type of order.
The Store displays the characteristics of the Products you order. There could be minor differences between the Products you eventually receive and their visual display on the Store or checkout (e.g. in relation to appearance / color / texture / finish) as all pictures and images of Product displayed are for illustrative purposes only. Where dimensions and measurements are provided in the description of each Product, the dimensions may vary slightly in real life, and it is your responsibility to ensure that the actual size of each Product is suitable for your purpose (including whether there is appropriate and safe access to your delivery address for delivery of the Product), please read the descriptions and details of the Products carefully before placing the Order. This clause does not limit or exclude consumer guarantees or warranties which cannot be excluded under applicable consumer rights legislation explicitly prevailing the governing law hereof.
2. Order Acceptance and Confirmation
The information contained in these Terms, and the data contained on the Store and checkout, constitute only an invitation to contract. Your Order is not accepted (and therefore no commitment is made to sell or provide you with the Products), and no contract for the sale of such Products will come into effect, until you receive an email explicitly stating that the Order has been accepted and confirmed ("Order Confirmation"). The contract is concluded in the dispatch country (where the contract for the sale of the Order is concluded).
The Order is subject to fraud checks and other mandated regulatory checks (such as ‘Denied Parties Screening’). You may also be required to provide additional verifications and information before, and as a condition to, the acceptance of any Order (mainly if there is suspicion that the identity, address, email address and/or payment information were used fraudulently or in an unauthorized manner).
In certain circumstances your Order may be declined or cancelled (in full or in part), whether before, or after an Order Confirmation was received. For example we may, in our sole discretion, decline or cancel (in full or in part), any Orders which did not successfully pass the above mentioned fraud and regulatory checks, any abnormal Orders, any Orders which are suspected to be placed in bad faith, Orders which were not placed by Consumers, Orders in which the payment information you provided cannot be verified, or if a Product included in the Order is unavailable.
We also reserve the right, in our sole discretion to decline or cancel an Order (in full or part) in case of actual or suspicious circumstances (related to us, you or any third party) of a good faith, genuine or honest error, mistake or misunderstanding (an “Error”) where without such Error the Order would not have been accepted or dispatched and a contract to sell the Product(s) underlying the Order would not have been agreed to. An example could be a speciously low price for an item otherwise costing significantly more and not in the context of a ‘sale’ or special promotion. We will be under no obligation to honor an Order in such erroneous circumstances.
In each event described above where an Order was cancelled or declined, you will be refunded in accordance with these Terms (provided your payment was processed successfully).
Quantity limits (per order, per address or otherwise) may apply in relation to certain Products, and exceeding Orders could be declined at any time for that reason, without notice.
We are not required to provide a reason for declining or cancelling any Order, though we may do so in our sole discretion.
3. Duties and Tax
You may be offered to pre-pay Duties and Taxes on checkout. Not all products and not all destinations support pre-payment of Duties and Taxes, and we cannot guarantee that your Order will be eligible for such pre-payment. The Store or checkout will provide details, itemize or indicate if the price paid is inclusive or exclusive of Duties and Taxes before you complete and place the Order.
If Duties and Taxes were not paid when you placed your order, either because you so elected or because pre-payment is not available in the delivery destination (or for any other reason): (a) you are advised that the amount of Duties and Taxes displayed under the pre-payment option on the checkout is only an estimation and may not reflect the amount of Duties and Taxes actually charged to you by the broker, carrier or the relevant authority, which such amount might be higher than the estimation; and (b) you will be fully responsible for paying all applicable Duties and Taxes directly to the relevant authority as determined and assessed by such authorities. Global-e and the Store Owner will have no responsibility or liability in connection with the foregoing. Moreover, if you fail to pay any Duties and Taxes without reasonable reason, causing the liability to fall on us, the carrier or any third party (including the Store Owner), the amount of such Duties and Taxes may be deducted from any refund or other amounts you may claim.
Global-e may contract with customs brokers or use fiscal representatives to act on its or your behalf for the purposes of clearing the Order into the market. We may also act as, or use our intra-group affiliates as, a ‘customs declarant’ to clear the Order into the market in our name but on your behalf. Your agreement to these Terms constitutes a consent and authorization for such customs brokers, fiscal representatives or intra-group affiliates to act on your behalf (as an agent, declarant or as otherwise applicable) to: (a) transact with the applicable authorities, (b) complete, submit and execute related documents on your behalf in connection with the import and clearance of Products, (c) facilitate payment of Duties and Taxes and customs clearance; and (d) if applicable, return such Products (subject to these Terms).
You (and not Global-e or anyone on its behalf) will be fully responsible for claiming back any Duties and Taxes from the applicable authority, no matter what the process of payment was thereof, to the extent possible, in cases of a returns or any other eligible circumstances. Global-e and the Store Owner will have no responsibility or liability in connection with such drawback claim.
If you elected not to pre-pay Duties and Taxes, or failed to pay Duties and Taxes, or refused to accept Product not in accordance with a due cancellation procedure under these Terms, in each case resulting with the Product being returned or need to be returned, then, in addition to the above, you may be liable for the return costs and charges, and may not be reimbursed or refunded for the Delivery Costs paid by you for making the delivery to you. You may also be charged with additional direct or indirect charges resulting from said failure or refusal.
4. Title Risk; Risk; Importer of Record
The title to the Products ordered is transferred from Global-e to you prior to import, provided we are satisfied that a full payment of the Order amount was made or can be made.
Risk of damage or loss is transferred to you upon delivery to the delivery address specified in the Order (in case you have selected not to pre-pay Duties and Taxes, such location will be deemed to be the port of entrance to the import destination).
YOU WILL BE CONSIDERED AS THE ‘IMPORTER OF RECORD’ OF THE PRODUCT, AND WE (OR SOMEONE ON OUR BEHALF) WILL ONLY BE FACILITATING THE IMPORTATION ON YOUR BEHALF, AS YOUR AGENT, AND MAY, IN CERTAIN CASES, ACT AS THE ‘DECLARANT’ FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF FACILITATING THE CUSTOMS CLEARANCE (HOWEVER THIS WILL NOT CHANGE YOUR STATUS AS THE IMPORTER FOR PERSONAL USE PURPOSES).
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ASSURING THAT THE PRODUCT CAN BE LAWFULLY IMPORTED INTO THE DESTINATION, AND YOU THEREFORE NEED TO COMPLY WITH ALL APPLICABLE LAWS, REGULATIONS, CERTIFICATIONS AND RULES OF THE DESTINATION INTO WHICH YOU IMPORT THE PRODUCT. PLEASE NOTE THE STANDARD FOR USING THE PRODUCT IN THE IMPORT DESTINATION BEFORE ORDERING. PRODUCT ORDERED TO A DESTINATION WITH DIFFERENT STANDARDS CANNOT BE RETURNED FOR THIS REASON AND NO LIABILITY WILL BE ASSUMED IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCES WHICH MAY ARISE FROM PURCHASING PRODUCT WITHOUT THE CORRECT STANDARDS FOR YOUR DESTINATION.
Please note that documentation such as packaging, user manuals, product care labels, handling instructions or safety warnings may not be in your language; you may not have available manufacturer’s or other service options for the Product or parts thereof; the Product (and accompanying materials) may not be designed in accordance with the standards, product regulations, specifications of the destination to which you import or labelled in accordance with the requirements applicable in your destination, or in yours or the destination’s language; if the Product is powered, it may not conform to the destination power parameters such as voltage or other electrical standards (for example you may need to use an adapter to charge your Product).
5. Fulfillment, Handling and Delivery of Orders
The delivery and fulfillment of your Order is carried out by various service providers, which will be selected and operated by us or by the Store Owner (a "Fulfillment Provider").
Some Products may not be delivered to certain locations or destinations (due to limitations imposed on the Product itself or by the destination). You will be informed of such limitation, either on the Store or checkout, and the checkout should not permit you to submit your Order if the Product cannot be delivered to your specified address. However, we reserve the right, at any time, to suspend or cancel the delivery of any Product that cannot be legally delivered as such.
Delivery will be completed when the Product is delivered to the address chosen by you as specified when placing your order (in case Duties and Taxes were not paid, that may include the port of entrance to the country destination). Different parts of your order may be delivered on different dates.
Unless otherwise stated, and subject to applicable laws, delivery dates given on checkout (or on the Store) are estimates only. The Order will be delivered by the latest delivery time set out on checkout (based on the delivery method you selected, if such selection was available for your Order) or, if no delivery time is specified, within 30 days following the Order Confirmation date, unless exceptional circumstances exist (pre-order for example). Delivery timeframes are affected by your delivery address and the delivery method selected. Global-e is unable to specify an exact delivery date and time.
Global-e and the Store Owner have no liability for any loss arising from delay in delivery to the extent such delay is due to circumstances beyond reasonable control or where no reasonable steps could have been taken to deal with the delay. For example, delays resulting from customs clearance procedures, lockdowns or other actions of the authorities are outside Global-e’s or the Store Owner’s control, as well as any delay resulting directly from your actions or omissions.
If you receive notification of an attempted delivery, it is your responsibility to use the details provided to contact Fulfillment Provider for re-delivery. Efforts will be made to deliver your Product according to the details in the Order.
6. Special Provisions - Payments
Depending on your location, payment may be made to an intra-group affiliate, and such payment will constitute a payment to us and will discharge you from your payment obligations in connection with the Order and purchase of the underlying Products.
We may not be able to control additional charges, fees (such as foreign transaction fee or cross border fee) or surcharges imposed by your own bank, card issuer or the payment method you selected. We may not have any knowledge in advance of the applicability of such fees or surcharges nor does Global-e have any way to mitigate this, as this is purely up to the relationship and commercial terms between you and your bank, card issuer or payment method and their own policies. Global-e’s sole commitment in this respect is to acquire the amount specified on checkout in your selected currency.
Global-e takes the safeguarding of your payment details seriously, but we may not be able to prevent, and cannot be held liable for loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorized access to your payment details when accessing or ordering from the Store.
The transaction statement (of your chosen payment method) regarding the Order you placed with us will look substantially like this: **Global-e//Store Owner name**.
Payment by Cash on Delivery: If available in your destination, you may be offered Cash on Delivery ("COD") as one of the optional payment methods. If so, please be advised that the maximal amount that can be paid using COD is limited in accordance with applicable local laws in your destination and, may also be limited by the Store Owner in accordance with its policies or the carrier. The Products will only be handed to you subject to and after you have signed the delivery note and paid the Order amount in full.
When using PayPal/PayPal Express as a payment method (if available), the full amount of your purchase may be charged immediately following the placement of the Order.
Pre-Payment shall not affect your legal rights under these Terms (including for example any right to refund). If shipping, delivery or fulfillment obligations cannot be performed (subject to these Terms), you will be notified (notably via email) and a refund of the pre-payment will be made without delay.
7. Returns Policy
THIS RETURNS POLICY APPLIES TO ALL CUSTOMERS, BUT DOES NOT APPLY TO FAULTY PRODUCTS OR TO SUCH OTHER EXCLUDED PRODUCTS AS FURTHER DETAILED IN CHAPTER 8 BELOW (“LIMITATION ON RETURNS POLICY, WITHDRAWAL RIGHTS AND CANCELLATION RIGHTS”).
PLEASE VISIT THE STORE OWNER’S POLICY AVAILABLE ON THE STORE AND CHECK IF ANY ADDITIONAL LIMITATIONS APPLY.
Instructions for Return:
The return request must be made within 30 days from the date the Order was placed (unless otherwise specifically stated in the Store Owner’s policy, or required by applicable specifically prevailing consumer law).
If you wish to return one or more Products your purchased pursuant to these Terms, the following instructions apply:
• You must first inform of your decision to return the Product by a clear statement made through the returns portal and follow the instructions and providing the requested information therein, including providing proof of purchase (your Order identification number and the email address used for the Order), indicating the applicable items to be returned and the quantity thereof and selecting the applicable method of returning the product (if different options are available). If a returns portal link is not available on the Store, or on the Online Support link (if available) in the Order Confirmation, then you must inform of your intent to return your Order through Store Owner’s customer support, which will guide you through the process.
• A return Product authorization ("RMA") number will be provided to you (through the portal (if applicable) and via e-mail) and, if applicable, a return shipment label will be generated.
• Promptly thereafter you will send back the returned items or hand those over as per the instructions provided to you in the return portal. You must act without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your cancellation of the contract. The RMA number must be included in the return package.
• Unless otherwise specifically stated, items must be returned in a new and unused state, in perfect condition, with all protective or other materials in place and tags and stickers attached to them (if applicable), as well as with the original box / container, including all accessories and documents.
• All returns could be subject to strict quality control to ensure that the returned items satisfy these requirements. If the item does not meet such standards, the return and refund could be refused or the Product devaluation will be deducted from the refund amount.
• Upon receipt of the returned item and confirmation that it has been returned in accordance with the applicable requirements, you will be reimbursed for the actual paid price of the returned item and such other fees, if applicable pursuant to these Terms.
Some or all initial Delivery Costs you paid in connection with the Order may be reimbursable or refundable, if applicable based on these Terms and the Store Owner’s Policy. However, any delivery and clearance costs you incur when returning items may not be eligible for reimbursement or refund other than in the event of defective Product, where you will be reimbursed for the delivery costs.
From time to time, in select destinations, the Delivery Costs of returning returned items may be pre-paid on your behalf. Such coverage (or the absence of it), will be indicated clearly on the Store before checkout.
Duties and Taxes are normally non-refundable, for further information please review the Section captioned “Duties and Taxes”.
Title and risk to the returned items will not transfer back or assumed until such items physically arrived back to the returns facility, and therefore you are advised to use a courier service offering tracked service, and to have adequate insurance to cover the cost of the goods in transit.
Unless expressly agreed otherwise, reimbursement will be made using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction.
