Current Payment Policy: Billing of Purchases. Unless otherwise agreed to by Salty Mermaid in writing, authorization of payment by a consumer (a “Buyer”) who purchases any products (each a “Product”) from Salty Mermaid for all purchases must be received prior to Salty Mermaid’s shipment of any Product. All billing information provided by Buyer must be complete and accurate. Buyer’s confirmation of its purchase during the checkout process constitutes Buyer’s agreement to pay for the Product. Salty Mermaid reserves the right to cancel any order in the event problems are identified with the billing information provided by Buyer.
Credit Card Charges – Salty Mermaid will not charge the credit card of Buyer until the merchandise is shipped.
Split Shipments – If Buyer has a single order which is sent in multiple shipments, the credit card of Buyer will be charged separately for each shipment. Additional shipping charges will not be incurred on subsequent shipments.
When placing its order, Buyer shall use the billing address and contact information as it appears on the credit card statement of Buyer. In the event that such information does not match exactly that of the credit card, Buyer’s order may be held pending verification. In such case, Salty Mermaid may be required to contact Buyer directly. If according to delivery service’s record, the specified shipping address information does match the records on file, Salty Mermaid may be required to contact Buyer to update this information, which may delay delivery of the Product.
Pre-orders are orders for items that are not in stock currently but that are expected to be available for purchase at a later date. If Buyer submits a pre-order, the item will be reserved for Buyer and mailed out to Buyer when available. Salty Mermaid will send Buyer an email when the item ships out. Buyer will not be billed for the item until it ships.
Pre-orders may be cancelled by Buyer by written communication to Salty Mermaid at any time until shipment to Buyer.
STATE & LOCAL SALES TAXES – Salty Mermaid charges sales tax on all orders shipping to Florida. Tax will be displayed during checkout on the site for orders shipping to those locations.
Taxes that appear in your online order confirmation are estimated. Because orders may be fulfilled from multiple locations across the U.S., the actual taxes charged to your credit card will be calculated based on the applicable state and local sales taxes when your order is shipped.
The terms contained herein are subject to change as the taxation of online transactions is continually evolving. Salty Mermaid strives to comply with state and local tax laws as they exist currently, and continues to monitor and update its taxation policies as those laws change. No representation is made as to any sales tax, use tax, or other tax obligations of Buyer. Buyer may have a tax obligation in states where Salty Mermaid does not collect sales tax. Details of how to report these taxes may be obtained from appropriate taxing authorities.
STATES WHERE SALTY MERMAID DOES NOT COLLECT SALES TAXES – Salty Mermaid does not collect sales or use taxes in all states. For states imposing sales or use taxes, your purchase may be subject to use tax unless it is specifically exempt from taxation. Buyer’s purchase is not necessarily exempt because it is made over the Internet or by other remote means. Many states require purchasers to file a sales/use tax return at the end of the year reporting all of the taxable purchases that were not taxed and to pay tax on those purchases.
Buyer is responsible for any non-U.S. taxes and duties (including their collection and payment).
