When your order is ready to be shipped, you will receive a confirmation of the shipment by email. The email will contain details about the shipment and the tracking number of your parcel.
All offers under the "OFFERS!" link are limited time offers and depend on the availability of the product. Each product with a special offer can be purchased more than once by any customer until it runs out.
The shipping cost of each order is calculated in your cart. For orders within Greece under 25€, the shipping cost is 2,5€. For European destinations the shipping cost is 19,90 €. For international destinations or remote location the shipping cost is 39,90 €.

Delivery time is calculated in:
- 1-3 working days for destinations within Greece

If you order products from the Website for delivery outside the European Union, they may be subject to import duties and taxes that are imposed when the delivery reaches its destination.

The products will be under your responsibility from the moment they are delivered to you. Ownership of the Products will only be transferred to you upon receipt of full payment of all amounts due in connection with the products, including delivery charges.

The prices include VAT but the delivery costs are excluded, which will be added to the total amount due.
Prices may change at any time, but the changes will not affect your existing orders, even if you have not paid for them.
Despite our best efforts, some of the products listed on the website may have incorrect prices. We will normally check prices as part of our shipping process, so that when the correct price of a product is less than our price, we will charge the lowest amount when we ship your product. If the correct price of a product is higher than the price listed on our website, we will either contact you for instructions before sending the product, or we will reject your order and notify you of the rejection.
We have no obligation to provide the product to you at the wrong (lower) price, even after we have confirmed your order or sent you a distribution confirmation if the pricing error is obvious and unquestionable and could reasonably be recognized by you as a wrong pricing.
Payment for the products can be made by bank deposit, use of credit card or via PayPal.
Payment via Viva Payments and Paypal is made immediately and so is the process of your order.
In case of a bank deposit the transfer of money may take up to 2 working days. The process of sending your order will start after confirmation from the cooperating bank.
