5. THE PRODUCTS; SHIPPING; RETURN POLICY
Product Availability And Pricing
All products that ShopWorn sells through the Site (the “Products”) are provided by third parties and are not manufactured or supplied by ShopWorn. You acknowledge and agree that while some Products may be new Products, others will be shop-used or pre-owned Products.
If you are interested in a Product that is currently on back order or listed but unavailable, email ShopWorn at firstname.lastname@example.org or call ShopWorn at (201) 399-7339 and ShopWorn can tell you when (if ever) the Product will be back in stock. Sometimes with the volume of orders ShopWorn will receive, a Product may go out of stock before ShopWorn is able to post a notification on the Site. If this happens after you purchased that Product, ShopWorn will contact you directly to discuss possible options.
Product prices may be inaccurately displayed on the Site due to system or typographical errors. While ShopWorn makes every attempt to avoid these errors, they may occur. ShopWorn reserves the right to correct any and all errors when they do occur, and ShopWorn does not honor inaccurate or erroneous prices. If you purchase a Product with a listed price that is lower than its actual price, ShopWorn will, at ShopWorn’s discretion, either contact you to notify you of the correct price before shipping the Product or cancel the order and notify you of such cancellation. If the order has been shipped, you agree to either return the Product or pay the difference between the actual and charged prices. ShopWorn’s prices are also subject to change without notice. ShopWorn apologizes for any inconvenience that this may cause.
ShopWorn makes every attempt to ensure that ShopWorn’s online catalog is as accurate and complete as possible. To give you the opportunity to view the Products in great detail, some Products may appear larger or smaller than their actual size in ShopWorn’s photographs; and since every computer monitor is set differently, color and size may vary slightly.
ShopWorn’s objective is to provide you with as much information and detail about your prospective purchase as possible so you can get the details of a particular item and make an informed purchasing decision. In compliance with industry standards, ShopWorn states that carat total weight on all purchases may vary 0.05 carats from stated weight.
To keep ShopWorn’s prices low, ShopWorn does not allow comparison purchasing. Comparison purchasing is the act of buying several items with the intent of keeping the one you like best and returning the remainder. This causes undue restocking and inventory overhead and can be very costly.
Products purchased by you will be shipped in accordance with ShopWorn’s then current shipping policy, a current version of which can be viewed here: https://www.shopworn.com/shipping.
You may return Products only in accordance with ShopWorn’s then current Return Policy, a current version of which can be viewed here: https://www.shopworn.com/returns.
