2.2. You will be required to pay extra for delivery of goods.  Our delivery charges are set out in our website.

2.3.1. If the correct price is lower than the price displayed on our website, we will charge you the lower price and fulfil the order; or
2.3.2. If the correct price is higher than the price displayed on our website, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the goods, or cancel your order and notify you by email of such cancellation.
