3. Terms of sale

3.1. Placing your order

Purchasing from the site can be done by interacting with the picture gallery of products in the shop by clicking on them to see more. The full-screen zoom functionality is great for seeing the design of garments, embellishments, and fabric up close. Having selected the desired size and color, simply click “Add to Cart”. Please then look to the top left-hand corner of the screen for the shopping cart where you will be able to view and edit your selection and proceed to checkout. In the event prolonged inactivity causes your connection to our site to fail, your selection of items in your cart may be lost. In the case of this happening, you will need to re-select your preferred products. Please note that items placed in your cart will not be reserved for you until you have confirmed and submitted your order request. This means that someone else online may buy a product you had selected for your order if they complete the checkout process before you do. Availability of stock is not guaranteed until the point of warehouse picking of stock.

Before you submit your order, you will be given the opportunity to review an order summary, check the total price of your order and correct any input errors. Once you have made your choice and have placed your order, you will receive an email acknowledging receipt of your order. This is not a confirmation of your order. In an unlikely event of you receiving a confirmation that we cannot fulfill – we will immediately refund any settled payments.
 We will send out a second email confirming dispatch which will confirm your order is on its way. This email includes your personal order reference.
Please note that dispatch estimates are just that. They are not guaranteed dispatch times and should not be relied upon as such. As we process your order, we will make sure we inform you as soon as possible if any products you ordered turn out to be unavailable.

3.2 Prices

Prices shown on the site are stated in Euros. We Are Not Sisters may vary the prices listed on this website at any time and without any notice.

All prices indicated for EU customers on our site are inclusive of Slovak Value Added Tax (DPH), currently set at 20%. Changes in VAT will be taken into account and may alter prices shown online. All prices indicated for customers in the rest of the world on our site are exclusive of Slovak Value Added Tax (DPH). All countries are shipped to on a DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid) basis, meaning the product prices displayed are exclusive of all import duties, customs and local sales tax levied by the delivery destination country. As the recipient, you will be liable for all import duties, customs and local sales taxes imposed on by the country being shipped to, payment on these is necessary in order to release your order from customs on arrival. Import duties, customs, and local sales taxes will be invoiced directly by the courier or an import broker. Be aware that this may delay your delivery time as goods held at customs will be your responsibility to pay. If you are buying from outside the EU, you may also incur duties levied by the jurisdiction to which you have specified delivery. As custom rates tend to fluctuate regularly we will not quote for exact duty to be paid upon reception of goods. The delivery charges for your specific order will be listed at the end of the online checkout process before you submit your order.

3.3 Payment

It is very important that you note that the billing address you state upon checkout is an exact match of the address to which the card you are paying with is registered to. Fraud checks are set to halt any orders that fail to comply with this requirement.
All transactions on this website are processed using PayPal, secure online payment gateways that encrypt your card details in a secure host environment. The card issuer will then perform verification checks and by consequence in the event of card refusal, we will contact you by email or phone advising you of this. We may not accept your order if an item ordered is out of stock, we are unable to obtain authorization for your payment or if we identify a product or pricing error. We also reserve the right to reject any offer to purchase by you at any time and at our sole discretion.

3.3.1. Payment upon dispatch of delivery

We aim to dispatch all orders within 5 working days. Although we do give you an estimation of delivery time, we ask you to, however, allow up to five working days in the event of external factors, stock availability and payment authorisation causing eventual delays.

3.3.2 Cancellations

Customer satisfaction is always our top priority and as such we handle each query on an individual basis to the best of our ability. If you notice that you accidentally made a mistake while placing your order and wish to cancel your order, call our online team on +421 907 292479 for assistance.

3.4 Online Security

To protect you against online card fraud, our payment processor uses password-protected identity-checking CVV entry and 3D secure. To ensure that your personal bank codes and data are kept safe while shopping online we also use PCI DSS compliance. If the issuer of your card refuses to authorize payment we will not accept your order. In this case, we will then contact you. As card fraud is a serious crime, these are security measures that are only in place for your own online safety. We thus hope you understand we’d rather double check the authenticity of the identity provided by our online shoppers than process fake orders.
