How to Place an Order
Our products and services are designed for use by agencies, companies and professionals involved in public safety, healthcare and educational activities and certain other specific industry areas. Our products and services are not generally available to the general public.
Orders may be placed via phone, fax, email, regular mail or through our on-line store. You do not have to set-up an account with us in order to place an order, but we will need the following information when ordering:
Full name of organization/agency/individual/company ordering, as well as the name and contact information for the person placing the order (phone, email)
Full address details for shipping purposes
Full address for invoicing purposes
Method of payment to be made.
Details as to the products and services and quantity of each required as well as pricing
If for shipment to the U.S., the Federal Tax ID Number
Any other specific information you may need us to reference, such as a purchase order number or contract number, or quote details, or attention information
Details regarding any specific tax exempt status
Written orders or order confirmation by fax, email or regular mail may be required prior to any product shipping, at our sole discretion
All prices shown on our website and in our published literature, quotations or advertising will be in either Canadian or U.S. dollars, as specified. Although we strive to ensure that the pricing found on our website and published elsewhere are up to date at all times, we reserve the right to change prices at any time, without notice. If there is a discrepancy between our published price or web store price and the price indicated at the time of order, either by us or by the person placing the order, we will do our best to notify you of any price differences in advance of any shipment. The Purchaser will then have the option to cancel or alter their order.
One copy of the invoice will be sent attached to the outside of the order along with the packing list and other documents as required. An additional copy will be sent via regular mail or electronically when the invoicing address differs from the shipping address.
The Company's (Invitro Sciences Inc.) prices do not include sales, use, value-added excise or similar taxes. Consequently, in addition to the price specified herein, the amount of any present or future sales, use, value-added, excise or other similar tax, applicable to the sale or use of the product sold here under shall be paid by the Purchaser, or in lieu thereof the Purchaser shall provide the Company with a tax-exemption certificate acceptable to the taxing authorities. Since we are based in Canada, we generally do not collect or charge for any taxes on behalf of taxing authorities outside of Canada. Any duty or excise taxes applicable for shipments to destinations outside of Canada are the responsibility of the Purchaser unless stated otherwise.
Shipping & Handling
All orders are packaged and shipped to comply with Canadian regulations and to meet carrier requirements. We generally ship orders via FedEx® or Canada Post, F.O.B. our facility, with related shipping and handling charges pre-paid and invoiced to the Purchaser.
Company will ship on customer’s shipping account when requested; however, we cannot guarantee delivery when using the customer’s shipping account. There may be delays in shipping the orders due to shipping on the customer’s shipping account. Company is not liable for delays or the inability to ship due to the customer’s shipping account being invalid. A processing and handling charge of $10.00 in the appropriate currency will apply to all orders valued under $250.00 in either Canadian or U.S. dollars, when shipping on customer’s shipping account.
Any additional charges incurred by the Company, such as charges for shipping to a home address, or for the shipping of hazardous goods, that are charged to us by any carrier, are the responsibility of the Purchaser, and will be invoiced to the Purchaser.
We strive to ship orders complete whenever possible. However, given the range of products offered from multiple suppliers, we cannot guaranty that all products ordered will be available to ship at the same time. We reserve the right to ship partial orders unless stated otherwise at the time of the original order placement.
All payments must be made in the name of Invitro Sciences Inc. as indicated on the invoice.
For Canadian and U.S. based Purchasers, invoices must be paid in full within 30 days of the invoice date unless stated otherwise. For Purchasers based in other countries, payment in full is required in advance either at the time of order, or just prior to shipment, as specified. Late payments are subject to a 1.5% monthly finance charge. This will be a separate and accumulating charge until the invoice is paid in full.
Depending on the Purchaser and the products and/or services being ordered, partial payment or full payment, either in advance or prior to shipment, or different payment terms may apply at our sole discretion, and will be provided to the Purchaser prior to accepting and processing their purchase order.
