Terms and Conditions

Terms and Conditions

1. Orders

1.1. Payment

We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Delta, Paypal, Google Pay and Shopify Pay - other services may be added in the future.

1.2. Ordering

You will receive an order confirmation email as soon as you have placed an order. If you do not receive this email please contact info@sansho.com so that we may investigate and confirm that your order has been placed successfully. When you place an order to purchase a product from us your order represents an offer to us to purchase a product which is accepted by us by way of a dispatch note included when you receive your order. Any products on the same order which we have not confirmed as accepted in the dispatch note do not form part of the contract.

1.3. Pricing

Prices include VAT and exclude delivery charges and custom duties unless otherwise stated. We reserve the right to alter prices at any time. It may be necessary to change prices either up or down, from time to time, including any alterations to the rate of VAT. VAT will automatically be deducted at checkout for VAT exempt countries.

1.4. Cancellation

If you are ordering from within the UK, you have the right to cancel your purchase from us for whatever reason within 14 days of purchasing (excluding products made to order, please see below).  If you decide to cancel and return your purchases, you will be reimbursed for all relevant charges.

Some of our products are made to order. This includes most of our fabric lampshades. If you are ordering a lampshade which will have to be made for you, it will normally not be possible to reimburse you on cancellation of your order. If the lampshade hasn't shipped to you yet, we will reimburse you 50% of the price paid for the shade. If your shade has been shipped, we normally will not be able to reimburse you.

1.5. Returns

Returns from within the UK are free. Our goal is for you to be completely satisfied with the items you purchase from us. If you are not or if your order was damaged in transit, contact us through the Contact Us form on the website or simply email us at info@sansho.com within 14 days of receiving your order for a full refund or exchange (excluding products made to order for you - please see below). Naturally, you may look at and examine the items. However, please handle them with care and only to establish their nature & characteristics. For guidance, you may handle a product as you would have been allowed to in a store. If you handle a product beyond this, you may be held liable for any diminished value of it. Please return unwanted or incorrect items in resalable condition, preferably in the original packaging, within 28 days of receiving your order. Please notify us by email (including the reason for the return) and we will send you a pre-paid returns label (UK customers only). Package your items carefully (preferably in the original packaging), attach the returns label and drop off at the appropriate location.

Some of our products are made to order. This includes most of our fabric lampshades. If you are ordering a lampshade which will have to be made for you, it will normally not be possible to reimburse you on cancellation of your order. If the lampshade hasn't shipped to you yet, we will reimburse you 50% of the price paid for the shade. If your shade has been shipped, we normally will not be able to reimburse you.

1.6. Refunds

If you cancel the contract and the items are returned to us in resalable condition, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the cost of delivery (Please note the exception for items made to order for you - please see the Cancellation section in our Terms and Conditions). If you withdraw only from a part of the contract, relating to a specific product, we will reimburse you with the value of the product and any costs related specifically to it. However, we will not repay costs relating to the order in general, which would have been charged irrespective of the product subject to withdrawal, such as delivery costs. We will reimburse you without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day your return has been received by us. We will reimburse you using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result. For items returned more than 28 days after you received them, any refund or exchange will be at the complete discretion of Sansho Ltd. This does not affect your statutory rights.

For international deliveries, where the local delivery service has attempted a delivery and the item has been held and then returned back to us as unclaimed, we are very happy to refund the cost of the item(s) but we cannot refund the postage in this circumstance.

2. Content
