Sales terms

Prices

We offer wholesale and retail prices. Our wholesale prices are available only to club head instructors (proof is required) or to the person in charge of ordering equipment for the club, after receiving formal written confirmation from the head instructor. Individuals are subject to retail prices. Applicable taxes are not included in the prices. Pricing is in USD for all purchases made outside of Canada.

Shipping and handling

Shipment within 24 hours when our inventory allows, and the payment transaction is finalized. Shipping and handling fees are at the expense of the customer. We ship using regular post. Please specify if another form of shipping method is preferred. Any and all import fees charged by the destination country is the responsibility of the client.

While most Web sites offer a flat shipping rate, our state-of-the-art shopping system calculates automatically in real time the exact shipping charges according to the delivery address, weight and dimensions of the items you choose. You can select from a variety of shipping services that suit your needs.

As shipping is calculated based on the size and weight of all products in the shopping cart, any changes to a confirmed order (items shipped separately or additional items) are subject to modified shipping fees.

Xpresspost International, International Parcel™ (Surface) and International Parcel™ (Air) has a limited coverage (between 100.00$ and 1000.00$), depending on the destination country, for lost or damaged goods. To view your country’s coverage please click here. If the product value of your order exceeds the coverage, attributed by the postal service for your country, only the allotted coverage amount would be considered if a claim is filed due to loss or damage.

Excusable delays can occur with any shipping company. Arawaza shall not be liable for delivery issues that are beyond its control.
