Ordering & Acceptance of Purchases
Before you submit your order, you will be given the opportunity to review your selection, check the total price of your order and correct any input errors. Akụkọ Sweden AB does not guarantee that all items included in the Online Shop are in stock at the time of your ordering meaning that items in your shopping basket are not reserved and therefore may no longer be available once you place your order. In the event that an item is unavailable, we will contact you as soon as possible by e-mail to the e-mail address that you have provided to us at the time of your placing of the order. After submitting your order in the Online Shop, we will send you an order summary to the e-mail address that you have provided to us at the time of your placing of the order. The order summary contains your order number, details of the item that you have ordered and delivery particulars. Please note that the order summary is not an acceptance of the order but a mere acknowledgement that we have received your order. Once the order has been processed and we see that the items that you have ordered are available and that all other information that you have provided is complete, we will send a confirmation of your purchase to the e-mail address that you have provided to us at the time of your placing of the order. The confirmation of your purchase contains shipping information. We ship your order within 24 hours after the order confirmation. Make sure to submit the correct billing and shipping address to avoid delivery delays. We do not accept delivery to post office boxes, army post office addresses or to any similar addresses.

In such a case we will notify you by email to the email address that you have provided to us at the time of your placing of the order.

If you have been charged the wrong amount in the Online Shop, Akụkọ Sweden AB will give you the option of placing a new order with the correct price or canceling your order.

This means that if you live outside the European Union or on Åland Island, you will not be charged for VAT under Swedish laws, but you can, and probably will, be charged for tax, duty, import, brokerage fees and/or other additional fees (“Additional Fees”) upon receiving the package. Note that you, as a customer, are responsible for payment of the Additional Fees - Akụkọ Sweden AB will not compensate you for the Additional Fees that may be added to deliveries outside of EU.

We recommend that you contact your local customs office before placing your order, for further information on current Additional Fees. UPS will invoice you for these Additional Fees upon delivery of your order, through cash, check or invoice, and needs to be paid in for you to be entitled to collect the package.
