Once the order has been received, Multus will send an order confirmation via email which constitutes an agreement that the prices and order details listed are correct and agreed by the Customer, and confirms in writing the delivery costs, arrangements for delivery, expected delivery time, and any other information relevant to the order.
Payment instructions are set out on the invoice, our standard invoice terms are 30 days. We reserve the right to ask for prepayment for first-time customers or specific countries.

Terms of delivery
The incoterm of delivery for our goods shall be “Delivered At Place” (DAP), according to “INCOTERMS 2020” – International Rules for the Interpretation of Trade Terms (ICC Pub.

The seller delivers when the goods are placed at the disposal of the buyer on the arriving means of transport ready for unloading at the named place of destination. The seller bears all risks involved in bringing the goods to the named place.
Receipt of Products
Customers should inspect products upon receipt and notify us immediately of damage, shortages or defects by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Customer will be deemed to have accepted the received Products unless it notifies Multus in writing of any Nonconforming Products within 5 days of receipt, furnishing evidence or other documentation if required. “Nonconforming Products” means only those delivered Products, or quantity thereof, which are different than identified in the Order Confirmation. If notified of Nonconforming Products, Multus shall, in its sole discretion, (a) replace such Nonconforming Products with conforming Products, or (b) credit the price for such Nonconforming Products or, in the event of partial delivery, adjust the invoice to reflect the actual quantity delivered.
