Taxes and Resale
eMotimo is a California based business and is required to collect sales tax for any items shipped to, or delivered within, California. Currently we are only selling direct and do not accept resale certificates to avoid paying this tax.
If our system fails to calculate tax correctly, we reserve the right to hold the order until we can work with the customer to update the cost before shipping.
For any international transaction, duties and tariffs are the customer’s responsibility. We have tried to create the highest value product possible to help pass along the savings to our customers. We will declare the full value of the purchased products without exception. For International warranty claims, the customer will be responsible for round trip shipping costs. Before you return something, please contact eMotimo directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
International Order Verification
eMotimo requires additional verification on international orders over $500. For these orders we require a copy of the front of the credit card used on the order, showing the last 4 digits, as well as a photo of the ID/passport that matches the card. Verification can be sent to email@example.com.
Preorder and presale
We are excited to receive preorders. Please understand, when you checkout and provide payment information for an item on presale and/or preorder, eMotimo considers this action as a firm commitment to buy. Your card will be charged within 48 hours of the purchase. Anticipated ship dates for all presale or preorder items will be displayed in the product description. If you have any questions about our presale, preorder or sales policies please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org before you place any order with us, thanks!
We do not provide refunds for items purchased. We have done our best to represent our product’s capabilities. If you have questions about features or supported platforms, please ask before you purchase. At this time we cannot support buying and returning “renting” equipment for those that want to use it for a one time shoot.If you are dissatisfied, please reach out to us at email@example.com to help us understand why. Our goal is to have ecstatic customers.
eMotimo does not split shipments unless the customer requests it and is willing to pay for the additional shipping costs. If a customer orders a product listed as “backorder” the shipment will be held until that product is back in stock and the entire order can be shipped in full.
Address mistakes and restocking fees
We ship to the address provided by the customer on the order. We do not alter or change this address unless we have written consent to do so. If a package is shipped to the wrong address, the customer is responsible for that shipping cost as well as any new shipping costs associated with the order. If the package is refused and returned to eMotimo we will do our best to contact the customer and make new arrangements. If no contact is made, the customer will receive a refund less round-trip shipping and a restocking fee of 20%.
eMotimo does not guarantee a delivery date for any shipment. eMotimo does its best to set expectations on shipping times but relies on shipping carriers to fulfill the service agreement. eMotimo will not refund shipping due to missed delivery dates by the shipper. eMotimo will not refund shipping due to delays in customs.
