Pricing

All prices stated on the website are Free On Board (F.O.B), Singapore unless otherwise specified. Product dimensions and/or quantities are subject to change.

Acceptance

Any customer purchase order is subject to approval and acceptance by an authorized representative of Shafttech, and subject to the terms set forth herein. Shafttech expressly limits its acceptance to these terms, and additional or different clauses in customer's purchase order shall not be binding on Shafttech, and are hereby expressly rejected. Customer agrees to inspect the products within seventy-two (72) hours after receiving the products, and customer agrees to promptly notify Shafttech of any readily-apparent defects or nonconformities. Customer waives any right to object to such defects or nonconformities later than seventy-two (72) hours after receipt of the products.

Warranties

Shafttech shall not be liable for incidental or consequential damages directly or indirectly arising or resulting from the handling or use of the products sold or services rendered, or the breach of any of the terms hereof or from the sale. Shafttech's liability hereunder, for breach of warranty, negligence or otherwise, is expressly limited at the option of Shafttech Pte Ltd: (a) to the replacement at the agreed point of delivery of any products found to be defective or not confirming to the specifications set forth herein, (b) to the refund or crediting to customer the price of such products or (c) to the repair of such products.

Shafttech is a distributor, and not a manufacturer of products. As such, any warranty on quality, merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose is that of the manufacturer only and not that of Shafttech’s. Shafttech agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to bring about its manufacturers to furnish products that will be free from defects in both material and workmanship. Should the product fail to meet any manufacturer's warranty, then upon notification thereof and substantiation that the product has been stored, installed, maintained and operated in accordance with manufacturer's recommendations and standard industry practice, Shafttech shall assist customer in obtaining suitable repair or replacement, or other remedies, as consulted by the applicable manufacturer's warranty.

Delivery Terms

Delivery dates are approximate and are based upon prompt receipt of all necessary information from customer. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by Shafttech, delivery shall be made and title will be passed on to customer F.O.B. at time of shipment. Expense and risk of loss of transporting the goods shall be passed on to the customer at the point of shipment.

If the customer refuses to receive the products or the products cannot otherwise be sent to the customer's address for reasons attributable to the customer (such as nobody being at the address to receive the products), Shafttech will consider the sales agreement for such products to be terminated automatically. Please be aware that under such circumstances, the customer shall pay an amount equivalent to the price of the products and any damages incurred by Shafttech unless Shafttech believes  that there are special circumstances in light of the nature, type, or quantity of the products, the distribution system used, or any other factors.

Delivery in instalments

Shafttech reserves the right to make delivery in instalments. All such instalments shall be separately invoiced and paid for when due, without regard to subsequent deliveries. Delay in delivery of any instalment shall not relieve customer of the obligations to accept and pay for remaining deliveries.

Payment

For customers under credit terms, payments are due within thirty (30) days from invoice date unless otherwise agreed in writing by an authorized officer of Shafttech. Discounts are not available for payment by credit card or for cash purchases.

Shafttech will set a maximum credit amount that the customer can owe to Shafttech for the total purchase of the products at any given time. If the total price for the products ordered by customer exceeds the maximum amount allowable, Shafttech may, at its own discretion, request customer to pay in advance or pay the outstanding amount owing, refuse the order, or use other methods determined by Shafttech. In such a case, please be aware that it may not be possible to deliver the products by the prescribed delivery date. You may check with Shafttech representatives with regards to the maximum amount.

Should the financial responsibility of customer at any time become unsatisfactory to Shafttech, Shafttech shall have the right to require payment for any shipment hereunder in advance or, with the provision of satisfactory security. If customer fails to make payment in accordance with the terms of this agreement or fail to comply with any provision hereof, Shafttech may at its option, in addition to any other remedies, cancel any unshipped portion of an order and other pending orders. Customer shall remain liable for all unpaid accounts. If customer fails to make payment in accordance with the terms of this agreement, the account shall be deemed to be delinquent and a late charge of two percent (2%) per month will be assessed on the unpaid balance. Customer agrees to pay all associated collection costs and expenses incurred by Shafttech, including reasonable debt collection or attorney fees, in collecting or attempting to collect the remaining amount.

Any difference in the amount of freight from that shown on the invoice as being included, shall be paid for on customer's account. Shafttech reserves the right to designate the origin and intermediate carriers. If a specific freight forwarding agent is required, customer must designate such carrier in writing to Shafttech prior to shipment.

Taxes
