The prices on the catalogue are indicative and are constantly adapted to market conditions. Prices are in Swiss Francs (CHF) and include the mandatory advanced recycling fee. Shipping and packaging costs are charged separately. Generally, payment must be made within 30 days from the invoice date. Any delay in payment shall result in the blocking of the Customer’s account. An administrative fee of 10.00 CHF may be charged starting from the second payment reminder. To make purchases, new customers are required to pay by credit card, advance payment or in cash.
