3. Availability

All items are subject to availability. We will inform you as soon as possible if the goods you have ordered are not available. We have a physical store which shares the limited stock so if an item in our physical store is purchased and sold at the same time an order for the item online is processed then the online item will not be available. In this case we will inform you as soon as possible and do our best to fulfil the order, cancel the order or amend your order to substitute the unavailable items with available items at your discretion.
To ensure availability of all our products, customers may be limited to a maximum number of items. Kapiti reserves the right to limit the range of products available.

4. Online Process

We must receive payment of the whole of the price for the goods that you order before your order can be accepted. Once payment has been received by us, we will confirm that your order has been accepted by sending an email to you at the email address you provide in your order form. Items will only be dispatched once payment has been received. For more information regarding delivery times please refer to Section 5 “Shipping”.
