The costs for the development process, the material and possible auxiliary materials for the production of the prototypes will only be charged to you if the order is cancelled during the design phase or after the presentation of the prototypes.
If the presentation is successful, we will prepare a quotation for the final production of the piece(s). You will transfer 50% of the total amount within 14 days after the presentation in advance. The other half is paid when the finished order is handed over.
As soon as the client transfers the 50%, we start the production. The sooner the customer pays the deposit, the easier it is for us to avoid delays in delivery. If the customer does not pay the 50% deposit for the production within 14 days, we are obliged according to our terms and conditions to first issue a reminder, and then an invoice for "sample production contract".
These terms and conditions will be accepted and signed by both the client and the Zermatt Ceramics representative in the form of a "Sample Production Contract" at the initial meeting.
After the presentation of the prototypes, a quotation will be sent to you together with a production contract, on which the discussed details of the final ceramics (colour, clay, size, unit price, possible discounts, production time, collection, shipping) are recorded.
