Terms & Conditions

General Sale Conditions

The current General Sale Conditions determine the contractual relations between the customers of ThePortugalOnlineShop, an e-commerce website dedicated to selling Portuguese products to the International and National market.

The general sale conditions are the only conditions applied and prevail over all other conditions, apart from when a prior express and written agreement is drawn up.
We consider that when the order is validated, the customer automatically accepts our general sale conditions.

Making your Order

Orders are made through our internet e-commerce site, ThePortugalOnlineShop, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Ordering is very easy. You can "add to cart" at any time, even without being on the product description page. When a certain product has additional choices (size, colour, type, etc), adding to the shopping cart or basket will always only be possible through the actual product page. You may change quantities easily if you intend to purchase more than one unit.

The customer shopping basket will always be visible in the right side, describing which and how many products are to order, the total weight and the total cost. Note that shipping cost will only be displayed in the checkout process. You can view you shopping basket in a specific "basket" page or you can proceed to checkout quickly.

The customer will receive confirmation of the order made by email. You can make a custom order by contacting us, either by our contact form, our email or through skype.

The prices shown on the site can be seen both in Euro, US Dollar and British Pound, and already include tax for National Customers. Customers residing in Portugal will be charged with corresponding tax, IVA, at the current legal value.

Please note that if a customer reside outside the European Union, additional taxes may be charged such as customs. The taxes are not ThePortugalOnlineShop responsibility and may vary from country to country. Please inform yourself of your contry legal duties before purchasing.

Delivery expenses are paid by the customer and are charged at the end of the request, and depend on the products selected and the geographical zone they are sent to.

All prices can be reviewed at any given moment, especially on stock rupture, or manufacturer's change on cost.

Reward Points and Coupons

Promotions, coupons and discount codes!

Reward points are not implemented at the moment.

Coupons or Vouchers are discount codes that you can enter on checkout in order to save on all or specific products. There are several times where our customers may benefit from those, such as promotions, holliday times, recurring customers, loyalty points, etc.

The discount codes usually affect only the products in the basket, and do not affect the shipping cost. However there may be coupons that affect shipping, such as FREE shipping codes.

Using the discount codes is very easy. On the checkout process you can insert your code in the Coupon box field and apply it. I will automatically show a new total with the discount.

Availability and Delivery Time

ThePortugalOnlineShop shall comply with the deadlines of an order provided that the products in the order are available. We remind you that our shop sells not our own manufactured products, but rather unique products made by craftsmen, or other items made in production environments not made for mass market/distribution, that may lead to variable availability.

Time to ship any order is usually in the next business day, but can take up to 3 business days. Shipping delivery time may range from 3 to 20+ days depending on the geographical zone and shipping zone.

If a product ordered is not available, ThePortugalOnlineShop will contact the customer by email or telephone within 5 days maximum counting from the date of the order request to inform him/her of the new delivery deadline of the product.

If any product cannot be delivered by Stock rupture, meaning that there will not be a future possible deadline for delivery, ThePortugalOnlineShop will automatically refund the cost amount of those products to the customer.

Delivery Methods

All orders will be delivered through the Portuguese mail courrier, "Correios de Portugal - CTT".

All customers with orders shipping to Portugal can choose from standard or registered shipping. Registered shipping will be much faster and benefit from a tracking code service.

Customers can select two options for all orders weighting above 2kg. Single package with all items or Multiple packages of 2kg maximum. CTT charge very high prices for all packages above 2kg, so sending in multiple packages ensure the cheapest shipping cost.
