Wholesale and Trade Terms of Trade

 

MINIMUM QUANTITIES
All wholesale orders must be $300.00 or over. For Online Wholesale customers, we have a $1,500 minimum spend for first time online stockists which is due prior to the dispatch of goods.


FREIGHT
We ship via TOLL or Australia Post, depending on your selection when ordering. Freight is not included in product pricing, instead it is calculated and applied to your final invoice before payment and dispatch. For international orders you will receive a freight quote before your order is shipped. In-stock items usually ship the next day. If you place an order that contains both backorder and in-stock items, the order will be automatically split to ship in-stock items immediately. Products not available will be placed on backorder and dispatched once back in stock. Shipping fees apply to each separate order.


RETURNS & CANCELLATIONS
Return of faulty/broken items should occur within 5 days of receiving them. To report a broken item, please email the details of the damage and an image to shop@blac.design, and quote your invoice number. Non-delivery must be reported immediately.

All orders are final and cannot be cancelled once the order has been confirmed and the final invoice has been generated. We do not accept return of unsold goods, change of mind or preference of natural variation in patterened items like marble.

All BLAC products are handmade, therefore some variation between the same product can occur.  The surface of some products, including concrete and ceramic lines, has been designed to look very natural and unique. This is not considered a fault.
