- The User selects the delivery method;
- The User selects the payment method;
- The User enters invoice details (optional);
- The User submits their order by clicking the „Complete order“ button;
After completing the order, the User will receive an email from the Supplier confirming the order and containing the order details.
The order confirmation email shall bear the meaning of acceptance by the Supplier of the submitted order and thus shall form a purchase agreement between the Parties.
As soon as the order is ready for dispatch, the Supplier will send an email confirming the dispatch of the order to the User.
5. Prices and payment method
The prices displayed on the Website are in BGN, VAT included, and are applicable for delivery on the territory of Bulgaria. The Supplier reserves the right to change the prices of the goods at any time, without notice, except for goods already ordered by the User. VAT shall be applied at the statutory rate in force at the time the order is placed. The prices of goods displayed on the Website do not include courier costs.
The user may pay the price for the individual goods at once when ordering the goods or upon their delivery in one of the following ways:
- Cash on delivery at the time of receipt of the goods from a courier;
- By bank transfer;
By accepting these Terms and Conditions, the User undertakes to pay the Supplier in advance, in full, the purchase price of any goods ordered from the Website, except in the case of payment by „cash on delivery“.
In case of payment by „cash on delivery“ upon delivery, the User receives from the courier an invoice/fiscal receipt, which indicates the price due for the goods and the cost of processing and delivery of the order. The user shall pay the courier the total amount due, including the price of the goods and the handling and delivery charges stated in the invoice/receipt. The payment shall be noted in the acceptance document, which serves as a receipt and certifies the delivery of the goods by the courier to the User. By signing the acceptance document, the User authorizes the courier to transfer on his behalf and at his expense to the Supplier the amount specified in the invoice/fiscal receipt.
The user shall have the right to choose whether the goods will be delivered to an address specified by him/her, to an office of a courier, or to one of our stores. Products are delivered only to regular postal addresses in Bulgaria. Goods can also be delivered to the so-called "collective" address (an address that is, for example, in a business building, school, kindergarten, etc.). In this case, the User shall confirm that the delivery had been made upon face-to-face delivery to the collective address indicated in the order, although the goods may be received by a third party. The transfer of risks to the User takes place upon delivery, so it is important that the User shall take all measures to ensure receipt of his/her order at such address.
The delivery time is 30 days from the conclusion of the agreement, unless otherwise agreed by the Parties. The User will be automatically informed of the dispatch of his/her order by e-mail or telephone.
If the Supplier is unable to perform the contract because of not having the ordered goods, he is obliged to notify the User and refund the amounts paid by him.
Delivery shall be made by courier company, and the cost thereof shall be borne by the User, unless otherwise provided in these Terms and Conditions.
A User who is absent at the time of delivery will be contacted again in accordance with the rules of the relevant courier and, if delivery is not made within 10 working days, the product will be returned to the Supplier. The Supplier shall then attempt to contact the User and, in the absence of a response within 7 working days, the User shall be deemed to have exercised their right of withdrawal.
The User must inspect the goods at the time of delivery and transfer and if the goods do not meet the requirements, to notify the Supplier immediately. If the User does not notify the Supplier, the goods shall be deemed to be approved as conforming to the requirements.
In the event of an error, regardless of whose fault, resulting in the User receiving goods other than those ordered, or at a different price from what had been specified at the completion of the order, the User shall immediately return the goods at the Supplier's expense.
7. Right to return the goods
The user has the right to withdraw from the agreement within 14 days from the date of acceptance of the goods by the Supplier, without compensation or penalty and without giving a reason. The User shall notify the Supplier of his/her wish to withdraw from the contract or to replace a good clearly and unambiguously by completing the standard form for withdrawal in one of the following ways:
– by post to , 37 Dragan Tzankov Blvd., 1797 Sofia, Bulgaria
– by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Supplier shall refund all amounts received from the User without undue delay and no later than 14 days from the date on which the goods are accepted by the Supplier. The Supplier shall reimburse the amounts received using the same means of payment used by the User in the original transaction, unless the User has expressly wished to use another method of payment and provided that this is at no cost to the User.
Instead of refunding the amount paid, the User shall have the right to request a replacement with different size or item appearing in his original order.
The cost of returning the goods shall be borne by the User.
The right of withdrawal does not apply to the following agreements:
- for the supply of goods or services whose price depends on fluctuations in the financial market which cannot be controlled by the Supplier and which may occur during the period for exercising the right of withdrawal;
- for the supply of goods made to the User’s order or in accordance with his individual requirements;
- for the delivery of goods which, due to their nature, may deteriorate in quality or have a short shelf life;
- for the delivery of sealed goods which have been unsealed after delivery and cannot be returned for reasons of hygiene or health protection;
- for the delivery of goods which, having been delivered, have by their nature become mixed with other goods from which they cannot be separated;
- for the delivery of alcoholic beverages, the price of which is agreed at the time of conclusion of the contract of sale, where delivery can be made no earlier than 30 days from the conclusion of the contract and whose actual value depends on market fluctuations which cannot be controlled by the Supplier;
- where the User has expressly requested the Supplier to visit him/her at his/her home in order to carry out urgent repair or maintenance work; where, during such a visit, the Supplier provides other services in addition to those requested by the User, or delivers goods other than spare parts necessary to carry out the repair or maintenance, the right of withdrawal shall apply to such additional services or goods;
- for the supply of sealed audio or video recordings or sealed computer software that are unsealed after delivery;
- for the supply of newspapers, periodicals or magazines, excluding subscription contracts for the supply of such publications;
- that are concluded during a public tender;

- for the provision of digital content which is not delivered in a tangible medium, where performance has commenced with the express consent of the User who has acknowledged that he is aware that he will thereby lose his right of withdrawal.
The Supplier and the User shall conclude separate purchase agreements for the goods requested by the User, notwithstanding that they are selected by a single electronic order, and the Supplier shall arrange the delivery of the goods ordered by the separate purchase agreement as a whole. The User's rights in relation to the delivered goods shall be exercised separately for each purchase agreement. The rights in relation to a delivered good shall not affect and shall not be valid in relation to the purchase agreements for the other goods. In the event that the User has the status of a consumer within the meaning of the Consumer Protection Act, the exercise of the right of withdrawal from the purchase agreement for a particular good shall not affect the purchase agreements for the other goods delivered to the User. When exercising the rights under the purchase agreement, the User shall be obliged to indicate accurately and unambiguously the agreement and the goods in respect of which he exercises the rights.
8. Legal and commercial warranty
