Limited Edition & Pre-Order Products
SocietyA offers the option of pre-ordering from time to time.

If a piece does not receive enough pre-orders within thirty (30) days after offering it on the SocietyA Website, we will notify you, cancel your order and refund any paid charges. Please note the delivery time for Pre-Order items is longer than for regular items as they are produced only after you order them and they meet the designer’s target order number. We regret that Pre-Order products are not returnable as they are produced to order, unless they are damaged before shipment.
Acceptance of Order
Once you have made your selection and your order has been placed using our Website or our Services, you will receive an email acknowledging the details of your order. This email is not an acceptance of your order but a confirmation that we have received it.
We reserve the right not to accept your order in the event, for example, that we are unable to obtain authorization for payment, that shipping restrictions apply to a particular item, that the item ordered is out of stock or does not satisfy our quality control standards and is withdrawn, or that you do not meet the eligibility criteria set out within the TOS.

Acceptance shall take place when we expressly accept your order by email to you, in the form of a document called a "Confirmation of Order" stating that we are accepting your order. Our Confirmation of Order shall be deemed to come into effect when we have dispatched it. Without affecting your obligation to pay us earlier, we may send an invoice to you at any time after we have accepted your order. Until the time when we accept your order, we reserve the right to refuse to process your order and you reserve the right to cancel your order. If we or you have cancelled your order before we have accepted it, then we will promptly refund any payment already made by you or your credit or debit card company to us for the order of the item / good / product
You shall take all reasonable measures to ensure that you give your correct delivery address when you place orders for items. We request you provide your name and full address including postal code and country. We do not deliver to post office boxes. We are unable to change the address once the items have left our warehouse. If the courier is unable to deliver the shipment after 3 attempts, it will be returned to us. Once a shipment has been signed for by anyone at the shipping address (including security guards, reception and employees), it is deemed ‘delivered’.
We carefully select our designers and review their products, however we cannot and shall not be liable in the event that your SocietyA transactions result in any prohibited products being delivered to your shipping address. We encourage you to check with your local Customs Authority to ensure your shipment can be imported. This is especially relevant for products manufactured with animal skins.
Prices shown on the SocietyA Website are in Singapore Dollars. To view prices in other currency, you may convert pricing using the Currency Convertor that is available on the SocietyA website.
The product prices you see on the SocietyA Website exclude the cost of shipping and tax duties. Depending on your shipment address, different taxation rules may apply. These costs are clearly stated in the “check out” page. Singapore deliveries attract Goods and Service Tax (GST) that is added at time of check out.
Product prices are set at the beginning of each season using existing currency exchange rates. These prices are subject to change if the applicable currency exchange rate changes before your order is accepted or the items are subject to markdowns at any time during the selling period.
We cannot confirm the prices indicated on the SocietyA Website until your order is submitted to us. In any case, we do not charge any transactions to your credit card until your order has been actually confirmed by us, according to the following clause (PAYMENT).
Payment shall be made by PayPal and any other methods prescribed by the SocietyA Website.

Upon receiving your order, PayPal will carry out a standard pre-authorization check on your payment card to ensure that there are sufficient funds to fulfill the transaction. Items will not be dispatched until this pre-authorization check has been completed. Your card will be debited once the order has been accepted.
You acknowledge that we have no control of or responsibility over PayPal or any other payment method, and cannot guarantee the service level of the payment method. To ensure proper payment, you are solely responsible for providing and maintaining accurate contact and payment information associated with your account with us. You agree to pay all applicable taxes or charges imposed by any government entity in connection with the purchase of goods and/or products. If taxes are required to be paid, SocietyA is entitled to invoice you for such charges and all costs incurred by SocietyA.

If SocietyA is advised that payment has not been authorized at the time of purchase or at a later time, we reserve the right to cancel the order.
