Payment Terms

(a) Payment Processing: [dbddiamonds.com] (“Supplier”) provides international payment processing and order fulfillment through its designated service provider, Calgary Foreign Exchange Ltd. (doing business as PayPal) (“PayPal”) as the Merchant-of-Record. When placing an order through Supplier, your order will be processed using PayPal checkout and payment processing services, and you acknowledge and agree that: (a) your payment transaction will be processed via PayPal, not Supplier, and (b) upon successful verification and authentication by PayPal of payment information provided by you, PayPal will accept the transaction, and purchase the products from Supplier for the sole purpose of reselling such products to you at a price equal to the amounts presented to and agreed-upon by you. PayPal will provide the merchant or Supplier with its own payment information to purchase the products you have ordered, and PayPal will resell such products to you and bill the payment information you have provided. PayPal acquires flash title to the products when the products exit the jurisdiction of Supplier. After PayPal purchases and takes title to products from the the Supplier to fulfill an order you have placed, you take title from PayPal before the products enter the jurisdiction that you have designated as your address for delivery. All items purchased from PayPal are made pursuant to a shipment contract. In the event of any disparity or inconsistency between the terms of any shipment contract or order fulfilment terms, the terms of this agreement shall prevail to the extent required to resolve the disparity or inconsistency. (b) Billing. If you provide a credit card as your tender type, your credit card will be billed by PayPal, and charges to your account will be accompanied by the descriptor “PayPal” (or such other descriptor as PayPal may deploy), which denotes the PayPal system, and that PayPal is the supplier whose products you have purchased through PayPal. If you paid using your PayPal account, charges to your account will be accompanied by the descriptor “MERCHANT VIA PAYPAL” (or such other descriptor as PayPal may deploy). In either case, you will only be billed after your products have been received, processed and dispatched for delivery by PayPal. In the event of the receipt of any parcel from Supplier containing only part of an order, PayPal will process the products received, and will only bill for an amount commensurate with the price of the products therein, pro-rated amounts for shipping and/or handling, plus any duty, taxes, VAT (unless PayPal and Supplier offered, and you accepted, the option of having your order shipped DAP (‘delivered at place’)). Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of an order being fulfilled by Supplier in multiple parcels, unless expressly consented to by you, in no instance will the aggregate amount billed to you by PayPal exceed the total amount presented at the time of order placement by you. If there is a technical error in the PayPal system which processes or accepts a transaction at an exchange rate which is manifestly off-market, that transaction shall be void.
