Sales and delivery conditions
1. Payment and shipping costs
1.1. Declaration of prescription medicines directly to your insurance company
Prescription drugs can be claimed directly from your insurance company. When supplying prescription drugs, the correct insurance details are required for the declaration. For (additional) payments for prescription medicines that are not or only partially reimbursed, we offer the opportunity to pay by means of iDeal, bank transfer in advance or SEPA direct debit mandate.
1.2. Shipping costs of prescription items
For prescription drugs, no shipping costs are charged when the package is sent within the Netherlands.
1.3. Shipping costs of items without a prescription
The shipping costs are €3.95 within the Netherlands. No shipping costs will be charged for an order value above €29.00. Shipping is done via PostNL, DHL, UPS or courier service.
A standard shipment is a package of up to 10 kg. If your order weighs more than 10 kg, we have to charge additional shipping costs. The height of this depends on the total weight.
1.4. SEPA direct debit
The amount due will be collected from your bank or giro account a few days after you have received the order. Payment by direct debit authorization is only possible if you have been designated as a regular customer with chronic medication.
1.5. Payment term on account
Payment must be made without discount within fourteen days of the invoice date. The date of payment is the date on which the amount is credited to our bank account. If the payment term is exceeded, the debtor is in default from the day on which payment should have been made. A default interest of 1% per month or part of a month is due on the outstanding amount from that day, plus €7.50 administration costs. When eFarma hands over the claim, all additional costs are for the account of the debtor. All this without prejudice to eFarma’s claim to reimbursement of any legal costs incurred for collection.
