3.4 In comparison, the Direct Dispatch option is targeted towards online retailers who are looking for assistance when it comes to the fulfillment of their orders. This option allows individuals and entities (“Direct Dispatch Users”) to market all of the products listed on our Site using their own platform/market place. However, instead of purchasing the stock in bulk, like a Wholesale User, the Direct Dispatch User will only order the products that have been ordered by their customers (“Direct Dispatch Customers”). Taylors Merchandise will fulfill the orders and ship the items directly to the Direct Dispatch Customer on behalf of the Direct Dispatch User using the postal address provided at the time the order is placed.
3.5 These Terms and Conditions also contain important information regarding returns and refunds for orders that are placed on behalf of Direct Dispatch Customers, as well as delivery. For this reason, it is important that all Direct Dispatch Users ensure that they have their own set of terms and conditions that cover such points and that all Direct Dispatch Customers are made aware of such terms upon purchase.
3.6 Please note that Taylors Merchandise will not be liable for any discrepancies between these Terms and Conditions and the terms and conditions provided to the Direct Dispatch Customer upon purchase, as referred to in section 3.5 above.
