Promotions and Discount Pricing
PaintBox Art Supplies offer promotional or discounted pricing on a products’ Recommended Retail Price over specified periods. These pricing advantages are detailed by email to our newsletter subscriber base, online notifications via thepaintbox.com.au and in-store display. The promotional price and valid promotional period are detailed in all email newsletter correspondence and in-store signage. PaintBox Art Supplies reserve the right not to display the valid promotional period on thepaintbox.com.au due to the display limitations of the platform.
It is the responsibility of the customer to be aware of a promotional price or the valid promotional period. Where an online purchase of a product has been made prior to the launch of a promotional price on that product, PaintBox Art Supplies is under no obligation to honour a promotional price outside the stated valid period.
Out of Stock Discrepancies
Products may display as in stock online, however during the period of the order being received to our physical store, the item may have changed to a status of ‘out of stock’ due to sales crossover from in-store purchases. PaintBox Art Supplies is not responsible for this display discrepancy. However, every effort will be made to fulfil the out-of-stock items which may result in a 7 day delay in fulfilment of an online order. Where a back order is out-of-stock at the supplier the delay may be 1 to 3 months, especially when relating to international suppliers. In all cases we will maintain correspondence with the customer regarding availability of the product in question.
Supply of Goods
Whilst PaintBox Art Supplies takes the greatest care in supplying the highest standards of quality in their products, they are not responsible for the useability of the product as supplied by the original manufacturer in an un-opened state. In these cases, we will begin correspondence with the manufacturer and discuss replacement of faulty products as per the Returns Policy detailed information.
Equally it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that the goods purchased are suitable for their own requirements and we are not responsible for climatic, environmental and existing conditional usage of the products. Many of our products are made from natural substances whose behaviour can vary in different environments and applications. Their structure can also vary according to the process used in their assembly and usage. The PaintBox strives to maintain consistency and continuity in these matters and in no circumstances will entertain claims for the value of work alleged to have been adversely affected by use of any of our supplied products, which prove to be unsatisfactory to the user. Our liability is therefore confined to the value of the goods alone.
PaintBox Art Supplies aims to ensure that you receive your purchased goods safely and in good condition. Goods are packed soundly, and the shipping carton is secured carefully. Despite these precautions, occasional there is damage to products during shipping which may cause leakage of the contents. Care must always be taken to open parcels to avoid spillages, further damage to goods and/or damage to other property such as carpets, flooring or clothing.
Damage caused because of ill-considered parcel-opening methods will not be compensated by PaintBox Art Supplies.
