However, if you purchase Products from more than one Seller at once, then you automatically instruct Us to order the delivery on your behalf and sign on your behalf a contract with the Carrier. The prices of the delivery will be notified to you during the purchase, prior to your payment for it. Other terms of the carriage/delivery will be per the then current conditions of carriage/delivery offered by the Carrier (FedEx of similar carriage company).

Delivery (carriage) outside of Armenia will be performed per the timelines ensured by the Carrier, taking into account also the timeline for transferring the Products from the Seller to the Carrier and the customs clearance.

As a result of the foregoing, the cost resulting from providing an incorrect address for delivery on the Platform shall be borne by the Buyer.
If the Buyer is not at the place agreed for delivery within ten (10) minutes from the arrival of the courier, the courier may at his own discretion return the product to the initial collection address or arrange another date and time with the Buyer for delivery within one (1) day starting from the initial delivery date, payable additionally per the applicable delivery rate.
GoldCenter will, as an extra service subject to a separate fee, prior to the delivery of the Products, check the compliance of the external layer of gold products to the declared gold content, as well as check the existence of content hallmarks. Upon such checks We will guarantee the correspondence of the external layer of gold products to the declared gold content.
The payment for the purchase includes the cost of the product, and our agency fee as Sellers’ agent.
