In certain cases, we may decide to determine whether you will be able to meet your payment obligations and / or whether there are other reasons why we would prefer not to deliver to you.

Can I also pay after delivery?
In short, no. Nothing will be shipped until paid and confirmed by our bank without exception.
Strict adherence to this policy also helps us keep costs low. If we would ship orders that are not paid afterwards, our cost center would be much higher, and the prices in the webshop would also increase.
In fact, ordering and not being heard can mean that we cancel the order prematurely. As soon as something is ordered, the items are reserved for you and are therefore not available to other customers. If we get the impression that someone has ordered something, but has not paid and has not heard from us, then we will also take that action …
For orders of electric and fixed massage tables and orders over 2000 €, it is possible to pay in two installments. An initial payment of 50% is made before the product is ordered from Earthlite. The second payment will then be made just before delivery to the specified delivery address. If for any reason the customer should cancel this order before delivery, the first installment payment will not be refunded or must still be paid.

In addition, the customer is legally obliged to pay a fixed compensation of 10% on the amount concerned, with a minimum of 25 euros per invoice. Without prejudice to the foregoing, Levensstroom reserves the right to take back items that have not been (fully) paid.
5. RESERVATION OF OWNERSHIP
