NZBN 9429041781784


1. General
  These terms and conditions (“Terms”) plus any implied terms which cannot be excluded are the whole agreement between the applicant named in the Credit Application Form (‘Customer or you/your’) and Urban Products Pty. Ltd. Company number 5716847 NZBN 9429041781784 (‘Urban Products’ or ‘we/us/our’). No other contractual terms of a Customer (such as on a purchase order or otherwise) apply and, if provided, they don’t constitute a counteroffer.  After you have received a copy of these Terms, if you place an order for the supply of all or a portion of goods supplied under these Terms (‘Goods’) you will be deemed to have accepted these Terms and they will apply to the exclusion of all other written agreements with us.
2. Order Requirements
  All orders must be a minimum of $400 for new and existing Customers. Stock items must be ordered in minimum order quantities, as outlined in our catalogue. If you order the outer carton quantities, you will receive the discounted sale price as indicated in our catalogue (if applicable).
 3. Prices 
  3.1 Prices charged will be in New Zealand currency and determined by us by reference to our standard prices in effect at the date of the order.  We reserve the right to increase the prices, however, we will not change any prices for an existing order that has been accepted by us; the prices that apply to the order are the prices that applied at the time you placed the order.
  3.2 You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of all specifications, details, sizes and quantities in your purchase order. We do not accept any responsibility for any errors in such specifications, details, sizes and quantities and shall fulfil the order in conformity with the information supplied by you.
  3.3  Documents requiring signature may be signed in electronic form and are binding from the time a person affixes a signature on your behalf.
  3.4  Prices don’t include (unless specified): (1) any statutory tax, including any GST, duty or impost levied in respect of the Goods and not allowed for by us in calculating the price; or (2) costs and charges in relation to insurance, packing (other than our standard packing), crating, delivery (whether by road, rail, ship or air) and export of the Goods.
  3.5  You shall pay any variations in the invoice or contract price as a consequence of currency fluctuations.
  3.6  These Terms shall not be affected by any impositions or alterations of customs duties or by decisions of the Customs Department with regard to either classification or value of duty or landing charges. Any such impositions shall be payable by you. 
 4. Payment Terms   
  4.1 For all new orders of Goods, you must provide your credit card details and must pay for the Goods in advance. After you have placed your first pre-paid order, you can complete an Credit Application Form to open a credit account with us.
  4.2 Alternatively, at our sole discretion, we can open a temporary seven (7) day account for the first order instead of you providing your credit card details. You will need to complete an Credit Application Form to open this account. If you have opened a seven (7) day account for your first order, payment is due seven (7) days after the date of invoice. 
  4.3  Unless clause 4.2 applies, for our standard credit account holders, payment is due on or prior to twenty eight (28) days from the date of invoice unless we tell you in writing otherwise.
  4.4  If we don’t receive payment on the due date, we may:
    4.4.1 charge interest (as liquidated damages) on the outstanding amount, from the time payment is due to the time you make payment, at the rate of two percent (2%) above the average bank short-term lending rate applicable to Urban Products compounded monthly; and
    4.4.2  place your account on hold until payment is received and/or place your account on a pre-paid basis. 
  4.5 For accounts outside our payment terms, we also reserve the right to charge any credit card held on file and to charge a 4 percent administration fee. 
  4.6  We may revoke our express or implied approval for giving you credit at any time. We can set-off against any money owing to you amounts owed to us by you on any account whatsoever.
  4.7  Any payments received from you on overdue accounts will be applied first to satisfy interest which may have accrued, second to reasonable expenses and legal costs, and then to principal. You are liable for all reasonable expenses (including contingent expenses such as debt collection commission) and legal costs (on a full indemnity basis) incurred by us for enforcement of obligations and recovery of monies due from you to us.
  4.8  All sums outstanding become immediately due and payable by you to us if you make default in paying any sums due to us, you become bankrupt or commit any act of bankruptcy, or have judgment entered against you in any court, notwithstanding the provisions of any other clause in these Terms.
  4.9  We accept cheques, direct deposit (eftpos) and credit cards (Visa or MasterCard). We reserve the right to charge you a surcharge fee for eftpos, MasterCard or Visa payments.
 5. Property   
  5.1 Until full payment has been made for all Goods, and any other sums in any way outstanding from you from time to time:
    5.1.1  Title to the Goods shall not pass to you and you shall hold the Goods as bailee for us (returning the same to us on request). The Goods shall nevertheless be at your risk from the time of delivery/supply and you must insure the Goods from the time of delivery/supply.
    5.1.2  You are only authorised to sell the Goods (or any portion of them) to third parties as our fiduciary agent provided that there shall be no right to bind us to any liability to such third party by contract or otherwise. All payments (direct or indirect) received from such third parties by you for the Goods (or any portion of them) shall be held on trust for us pursuant to the fiduciary relationship.
    5.1.3  If you incorporate or transform the Goods (or any portion of them) into any other goods or products produced by you (or a third party), then you must hold a proportion of any payment (‘relevant proportion’) received by you for such goods or products on trust for us. You expressly acknowledge that the relevant proportion shall be equal to the dollar value of the Goods incorporated or transformed.
    5.1.4  We are irrevocably authorised to enter any premises where the Goods are kept, and to use your name and to act on your behalf, if necessary, to recover possession of the Goods without liability for trespass or any resulting damage.
  5.2 In addition to any lien to which we may, by statute or otherwise, be entitled, we shall in the event of your insolvency, bankruptcy or winding up, be entitled to a general lien over all property or goods belonging to you in our possession (although all or some of such property or goods may have been paid) for the unpaid price of any Goods sold or delivered to you under this or any other contract.
 6. Delivery and Supply
  6.1 We shall not be liable for delay in delivery/supply. If we quote a time for delivery/supply, it’s an estimate only. We can stop supply/delivery if you fail to comply with these Terms. You agree that you will be obliged to and shall pay for the Goods on the due date notwithstanding that delivery is made after the agreed delivery date, and notwithstanding that the Goods may not yet be delivered.
  6.2  We may refuse to supply any order in our absolute discretion and may make acceptance of an order conditional upon receiving a satisfactory credit assessment of the Customer.
  6.3  If you tell us to deliver the Goods over different times or to different addresses from those specified in the Credit Application Form, then you: (1) shall be liable for any additional cost, charge and expense incurred by us in complying with your direction; (2) shall pay for the whole of the invoiced value of the Goods pursuant notwithstanding the staggered deliveries; and (3) such action shall be deemed to be delivery to you.
  6.4  You are deemed to accept delivery of the Goods where they are either delivered to your premises or when we notify you that the Goods are available for collection.
  6.5  If you are unable or fail to accept delivery of the Goods, we may deliver them to a place of storage nominated by you and, failing such nomination, to a place determined by us. Such action shall be deemed to be delivery to you. You shall be liable for all cost, charge and expense incurred by us on account of storage, detention, double cartage/delivery or similar causes.
 7. Personal Property Security Interest    
  7.1 You grant a security interest in the Goods and the proceeds (as defined in the New Zealand Personal Property Securities Act 1999(‘PPSA’)) to secure the obligation to pay the purchase price of the Goods and other of your obligations to us under this agreement (together the “Indebtedness”). You warrant that the Goods are not purchased for personal, domestic or household purposes.
  7.2  Where the Goods and/or proceeds are not readily identifiable and/or traceable or their recoverable value is insufficient to pay the Indebtedness, the security interest shall also extend to all the goods present and after-acquired by the Customer, of which the Goods form part, to the extent required to secure the Indebtedness.
  7.3  You waive any right to receive notice in relation to any registration or amendment to a registration on the New Zealand Personal Property Securities Register (‘PPSR’). At your own expense, you will provide all reasonable assistance and relevant information to enable us to register on the PPSR and generally to obtain, maintain, register and enforce the security interests created by this agreement.
  7.4  Any payments received from you shall be deemed to be made and applied by us in the following order (unless we otherwise determine): (1) to any obligation owed by you which is unsecured, in the order in which the obligations were incurred; (2) to any obligations that are secured, but not by a purchase money security interest (‘PMSI’), in the order in which those obligations were incurred (3) to obligations that are secured by a PMSI, in the order in which those obligations were incurred. 
  7.5  Until you have paid all money owing to us, you must at all times ensure that (1) all Goods, while in your possession, can be readily identified and distinguished, and/or (2) all proceeds (in whatever form) that you receive from the sale of any of the Goods are readily identifiable and traceable.
  7.6  Subject to clause 5.1.2, if the Goods are held by you as inventory (as defined in the PPSA), then you may sell or lease the Goods in the ordinary course of business. Otherwise until you have paid all money owing to us you must not sell or grant a security interest in the Goods without our written consent.
  7.7  Section 107 of the PPSA allows for the contracting out of provisions of the PPSA. Accordingly, the following provisions of the PPSA will not apply and the Customer will not have any rights under them: section 114(1)(a) (to the extent that it requires the secured party to provide notice to the debtor) section 116 (to the extent that it requires the secured party to provide a statement of account to the debtor), section 120(2) (to the extent that it requires the secured party to provide notice to the debtor), section 121 (to the extent that is allows the debtor to object to a secured party’s proposal to retain collateral), section 133 and section 134.
 8. Availability of Stock
  8.1 Any order that cannot be fulfilled on its receipt will automatically be back ordered and processed when stock becomes available unless it is your stated standard policy not to accept back orders or you specifically mark your order, "Do Not Back Order". Deliveries at any time are subject to availability of stock and we will not be liable for any charges due to product unavailability.
  8.2  All goods are packed in "Standard Pack" quantities, which our experience has shown to be the most convenient and suitable. An additional charge may be made for goods to be specifically packed and labelled.
 9. Restrictions
  You acknowledge and accept that we sell our Goods only through persons who have been authorised by us to sell specific product categories at specific locations and who comply with our Terms. Subject to the provisions of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010: (1) under no circumstances may you sell Goods through the internet or the mail without prior written authorisation from us; (2) you are prohibited from selling Goods on the international market (outside New Zealand) without our express written consent; and (3) does not grant to you the exclusive right to sell our Goods. We reserve the right to authorise and/or supply additional retailers in any market area that it deems necessary to adequately cover the market.
10.  Freight   
  Subject to clause 3.4 and unless otherwise agreed, we will ship by the least expensive route and carrier to all points. If you choose a route with a higher charge than the route of our choice for shipment, we will charge the difference to you.
11.  Returns, Cancellations and Claims
  11.1 You must not return any Goods to us without obtaining our prior authorisation. A request to return Goods for change of mind must be made within 7 days of delivery. No returns will be accepted unless a copy of the relevant invoice is enclosed with the returned Goods. A list of the Goods returned including product descriptions, quantity, date of return and your name and address must also be enclosed. Freight charges must be paid by you, and you will bear the risk of the Goods during transportation. All Goods must be returned in the original packaging and you shall be responsible for all damage incurred during return shipment. We will issue a credit note/refund only after Goods returned are either collected by our authorised representative or agent or returned to us as set out above. You must not deduct the amount of any anticipated credit from any payment due to us but must await receipt of a credit note.
  11.2  All Goods returned must be of merchantable and reasonable quality such that the Goods are complete in their original packaging, not shop-soiled, are not price ticketed and are still listed in the current price list.
  11.3  If we accept the return of any Goods that have been ordered, we may charge you fifteen per cent (15%) of the invoice price as a handling fee with freight costs and risk remaining your responsibility.
  11.4  We will not accept cancellations or partial cancellation of an order unless we have first consented in writing to such cancellation or partial cancellation and unless a cancellation charge has been paid which, as determined by us, will indemnify us against all direct loss, without limitation. Cancellation will not be accepted on Goods that are not regular stock which are in the process of manufacture or ready for shipment.
  11.5 All complaints, claims, or notification of lost Goods, incomplete Goods, Goods damaged in transit or Goods that do not comply with your purchase order must be submitted to us in writing within seven (7) business days of the date of the invoice rendered for the supply of the Goods. Otherwise, you are deemed to have accepted the Goods and shall not refuse to pay for the Goods on the basis that they were lost, incomplete, damaged in transit, or do not comply with your purchase order.
