- payment with a credit card;
- payment with Paypal.

The timing for reversing the charge depends exclusively on the banking system. Once the transaction has been cancelled, RANCÉ & C. S.r.l. can no longer be held responsible for any delays and/or damages caused by the banking system.
RANCÉ & C. S.r.l. reserves the right to request additional information from the User or request that the User sends copies of documents proving ownership of the card used. In the event of refusal, RANCÉ & C. S.r.l. reserves the right not to accept the consummation of the contract. At no time during the process of purchasing by credit card will RANCÉ & C.

12.2 Payment with PayPal
By selecting PayPal as the type of payment, the User will be redirected to a page on the PayPal site, and payment is to be made in the manner indicated therein.

S.r.l. shall not be responsible in any manner for any delays and/or damages caused during this phase.
13. PRICE AND PAYMENT
13.1 Product price.
The price of the product (including VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when the User places his/her order. While RANCÉ & C. is duly attentive to ascertaining the accuracy of the communicated price, the User is urged to read Article 13.3 concerning the event of an error in the price of an ordered product. The selling price of the products does not include shipping costs, which shall be indicated separately before the consummation of the purchase contract. RANCÉ & C. reserves the right to modify the selling price of the products at any time. The purchase price billed to the User is represented by the selling price available on the Site at the time of the consummation of the purchase contract.
13.2 Application of changes in VAT rates.
The price of a product is inclusive of VAT (where applicable), at the current rate applicable and chargeable in Italy at the time of purchase. Should the VAT rate change between the order date and the date when the product is supplied, the VAT rate paid by the User will be adjusted accordingly, unless the product has been paid in full before the change in the VAT rate has gone into effect.
13.3 Error in price.
It is always possible that, despite the utmost attentiveness, some of the products on sale on the Site may be priced incorrectly. As a rule, prices will be checked before accepting the order. If the correct price of the product on the order date is lower than the price indicated on the Site on the order date, the lesser amount will be charged. If the correct price of the product on the date of the order is higher than the price indicated on the Site, RANCÉ & C. will contact the User for instructions before accepting the order.
13.4 Timing and means of payment.
13.4.1 Payment for all products must be made using the payment methods available through the Site. Payment for products can only be made using the debit or credit cards indicated on the Site, or by using PayPal. The products must be paid for before shipment is effected.
13.4.2 The charge will be made to the User's credit or debit card, as soon as the User has confirmed the payment on the Site.
13.4.3 If payment is made via PayPal when the User submits the order, the web session is redirected to the PayPal site where the User can complete the payment of the price and delivery costs, using his/her personal account on PayPal or making a transaction without registration, in accordance with the conditions of use of the PayPal service.
13.4.4 Acceptance by RANCÉ & C. of any payment made by the User in relation to any product does not constitute acceptance of the order by RANCÉ & C. and does not constitute consummation of a legally binding contract.
13.5 Incorrect receipt. If the User believes that a receipt contains incorrect information, please send an e-mail to the address firstname.lastname@example.org
or telephone (+39) 02-5810-0855.

or telephone (+39) 02-5810-0855.

15. Delivery times
The delivery times for the goods vary depending on the availability of the purchased product in the warehouse (e.g. if the product is available from the manufacturer) and the delivery methods provided for the same.
The delivery date is purely indicative and is in no way binding for RANCÉ & C. S.r.l.
RANCÉ & C. S.r.l. makes use of couriers/carriers that offer the best quality/price ratio for the destination involved: this allows for offering the Users advantageous prices and quality in the service.
In no case will it be possible to make deliveries by appointment and/or at pre-set times and/or on pre-set days.
Should the goods not be delivered due to an incorrect address provided by the User or due to the expiration of the period when the goods can be held by the courier/carrier in the warehouse and/or due to any reason attributable to the User's conduct, a new shipment will be possible ONLY upon advance payment of the same, according to the processes indicated by RANCÉ & C S.r.l.
16. Delivery of the goods
The ordered product shall be shipped by courier to the delivery address in Italy or an EU country, as indicated by the User. Upon receipt of the products, the courier will request the signature of the User (or that of an adult authorized by the User). There are no deliveries of products to PO boxes. Deliveries are made only on normal business days/times (no deliveries are scheduled during weekends or holidays).
The User can check the status of the order by following the link available in the confirmation e-mail or by going to the MY ORDER section in the CUSTOMER SERVICE area of the Site, which will automatically redirect the User to the courier's website
(see Article 10).
Upon delivery of the goods, the User is responsible for checking that:
- the number of boxes delivered corresponds to that indicated in the transport document;
- the packaging is intact and unaltered, including the tape used for closing the package.
In the event of tampering and/or breakage, the User must immediately contest the shipment and/or delivery using the document received by the courier or another operator and affixing a written statement indicating "RESERVE FOR CONTROL OF THE GOODS FOR ....." (stating the reason).
The User must subsequently report any damage within three days of receipt of the goods in the manner provided by the shipping agent.
