Terms and Conditions
Prices are listed by item number and priced in US dollars. Prices are subject to change without notice.
MINIMUM ORDER REQUIREMENT
$500 Initial Order, no exceptions -. $350 – Reorders. Any order below minimum will be assessed a $25.00 Below Minimum Fee. Please note orders/product cannot be added to previous orders in house.
We accept Visa, Master Card, American Express and Discover.
First orders are accepted on a prepaid or credit card basis only. Prepaid orders require a check or wire transfer prior to shipment. Credit card orders must have the account name, account number, billing address and expiration date. Credit card is charged at time of shipment.
INTERNATIONAL & PROFORMA ORDERS
All international orders are sold on "Ex-works" basis. Customers must make all shipping arrangements with their own freight forwarders. International orders require a minimum 50% deposits including freight on the order to start reserving product. When inventory is accumulated to equal this amount, the order will be picked, packed and shipped. At that time, the customer will be notified of the remaining dollar amount of the order. Those funds will need to be wired to Global Views. Once these funds have been received, Global Views will then begin to hold merchandise until the order is complete or until the customer requests that the goods go ahead and ship. On international orders, a valid proof of export is required to be received by Global Views within 30 days of invoice, or you will be charged sales tax on the merchandise. All goods exported to Mexico through the Border States (TX, NM, AZ and CA) must use the BORDER STATES UNIFORM FOR RESALE CERTIFICATE in lieu of proof of export documents. Proforma orders are considered to be on "hold for confirmation" until a deposit is received. Payments on international orders can be made by credit card or bank transfer of funds. International orders paid by credit card are not subject to any additional service fees. International orders paid by wire transfer will be charged a $30.00 bank service fee. Canceled orders that have already been packed are subject to a 25% restocking fee.
Global Views is registered in multiple states to collect and remit sales tax. Global Views requires customers to have valid and up to date resale certificates on file at the time of invoice on purchases. Global Views reserves the right to charge any customer found to have an invalid resale certificate all applicable state taxes.
NET 30 TERMS
The privilege of net 30 terms is offered to customers who have submitted a satisfactory credit application with references - available only for second and subsequent orders. Net 30, according to our interpretation, means payment is due within 30 days of the invoice date. Any past due balance will be assessed an annual finance charge of 18%. Future in-house orders will not be released for shipment until all past due balances are paid in full, including finance charges. Should it become necessary to refer the account balance to a licensed collection agency or attorney for legal action, all subsequent charges and legal fees shall be paid by the applicant.

Every effort is made to ship product as quickly as possible, but occasionally items are backordered. As soon as the items become available, they are shipped without notice. Backorders less than $50.00 or older than 6 months will be canceled. If you have any instructions regarding backorders, please indicate when the order is placed.
Most orders ship via UPS (our preferred Carrier) or FedEx. Larger items and volume orders will be shipped via common carrier. We reserve the right to select the carrier of our choice, and if customer elects to use their own carrier they agree to assume responsibility for any and all transportation charges. All LTL shipping and handling charges from our dock are prepaid, FOB – Dallas TX. All shipments are packed very carefully using standard approved packing methods. Residential delivery and commercial non dock and/or special handling by an LTL carrier will incur additional charges.
RECONSIGNED OR REFUSED SHIPMENTS
The customer is responsible for all additional shipping and handling charges on reconsigned shipments. All refused shipments are subject to a 25% restocking fee and shipping charges both ways.
Upon receipt of your shipment, please count the number of pieces (skids/crates) and cartons against the quantity on the delivery receipt. The shrink wrap should be intact, but if not, this may be sign of shortage in your shipment. If a shipment arrives intact with no visible damage, the shipment should be received. The carrier will NOT allow inspection of a shipment received with no visible damage. If a shipment arrives with any obvious damage, you are entitled to refuse the damaged shipment. Please note on the DR the type of damage, shortage or if the shrink wrap is not intact, to facilitate claims. Please report all concealed damages within 48 hours of signing the DR to avoid denial of claim. Please submit a complete claim form to firstname.lastname@example.org with images of the damage to the item and of the shipping box. If you are not refusing the shipment, please keep the damaged item with all original packaging until the claim is resolved. Remember if not signed for short or damaged with description Global Views reserves the right to refuse responsibility. Please make sure your receiving facility is aware of the above guidelines and they should follow them.
No returns or damaged merchandise will be accepted without a Return Authorization (RMA) issued by our Customer Service Department first. All returns for reasons other than shipping damage or manufacturer defect are subject to a 25% restocking fee plus shipping and handling charges both ways. All merchandise must be returned in original condition for credit.
