You agree that the sole and exclusive maximum liability to Shoplet.com arising from any product sold on the Shoplet.com network of sites shall be the price of the product ordered. In no event shall Shoplet.com, its directors, officers, employees or other representatives be liable for special, indirect, consequential, or punitive damages related to product sold. Except as expressly stated herein, Shoplet.com makes no representations or warranties, either expressed or implied, of any kind with respect to products sold on this site, including but not limited to, merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.

Policies, Price, and Availability
Policies, item availability, and prices are subject to change without notice. The price in effect when we receive your order will be the price that you are charged. Please note that if the terms and conditions stated on your order form differ from those stated on our invoice, and you do not notify us within 15 days, it will signify your acceptance of the terms and conditions stated in our invoice.
We offer free shipping on all office supplies orders over $30 that are shipping to the 48 contiguous U.S. states and can be delivered by UPS or other similar common carriers. At this time, we are unable to offer free shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, and international destinations.
Availability of the 2-Day Delivery benefit depends on inventory availability, order deadlines, and in some cases the shipping address. 2-Day Delivery is a term used to determine your estimated delivery date (and does not reflect product availability or our estimated shipping date). 2-Day Delivery applies to business days. Our delivery carriers usually do not pick-up or deliver packages on weekends or holidays, though Saturday and Sunday delivery may be available in certain locations. We may ship the products by ground or air at our discretion (these terms do not correspond to any carrier-branded shipping services). We do not guarantee delivery of products within the estimated transit time or by the estimated delivery date. Products eligible for 2-Day Delivery will be designated as such on their product pages. Some special product, order, handling fees, and/or taxes may still apply to eligible purchases. If only some items in your order are eligible for 2-Day Delivery, you may be required to pay applicable shipping charges for the ineligible items. Changing or combining orders, or changing your shipping address, speed, or preferences might affect eligibility.
While Shoplet.com has tried very hard to ensure the accuracy of the product information in our online store, we are not responsible for typographical errors or technical inaccuracies.
Shoplet.com disclaims liability for misprints, incomplete, stale or otherwise inaccurate pricing distributed or provided by other parties or web-sites including but not limited to shopping, search or comparison engines or similar entities on web-sites other than www.shoplet.com. In the event that another entity provides inaccurate pricing for any reason, our price listed at www.shoplet.com at the time of order will prevail. Furthermore, Shoplet.com reserves the right to change its prices at any time without notice.
Order Acceptance Policy
We may require further information and verifications before fulfilling any order. All international orders require address verification. All large orders require a signed credit card authorization form, a statement of understanding for your protection as well as ours.
Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. Shoplet.com reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason. Shoplet.com reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order, without prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any item.
