Espaço S is dedicated to the sale of food supplements and other products in the areas of health, wellness, beauty and personal development, and operates as an online store through its website www.espaco-s.com/multi and as a physical store at the address given below. Here are the main Terms and Conditions by which we rule.
1. Pricing and availability
The prices at this online store (www.espaco-s.com/lojaonline/) are all presented in euros (€).
All prices include VAT at the prevailing rate and will be considered valid at the payment of the order, even if they are shipped or picked-up later by the customer.
Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalogue may be mispriced. If there is a mispriced item, the customer will always be informed. If an item’s correct price is higher than the price on our online store, the customer is given the choice to choose whether he wants to keep the order and buy the item at the correct price, or if he prefers to cancel the order. If an item’s correct price is lower than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount and, in the event that the customer has already paid the order, the difference will be refunded.
All the promotions and special campaigns are exclusive to this online store and cannot be combined with existing campaigns on other sales channels.
The prices shown for each item in this online store don’t include shipping and handling service.
The shipping and handling service will be calculated upon order checkout. (See information in paragraph 2.)
All items shown at this online store are subject to stock availability, but the customer will always be contacted in the event of unavailability. To avoid the need for refunds, we ask customers to pay only once they receive stock confirmation.
2. Shipping service and orders pick-up
2a) Shipping method
All orders are sent by CTT (our national postal service).
When delivering to Portugal (mainland and islands), we ship the orders by priority mail (prepaid orders) or registered mail (cash on delivery orders).
