These General Terms and Conditions apply exclusively to the ordering of products in the online shop www.less-n-more.com. Other general terms and conditions, in particular terms and conditions of customers, are not included in the contractual relationship with the customer, even if less'n'more does not expressly object to any inclusion.

d) Goods shall only be handed over in quantities customary in the trade.

3 Offer, order, conclusion of the contract

a) Information in "www.less-n-more.com" does not constitute binding offers in the legal sense.

b) You can view all products in detail on www.less-n-more.com before ordering. You start the ordering process by selecting the desired quantity to the right of the image of the desired product and adding the product to the shopping cart by clicking the "add to cart" button. The product is now in the shopping cart in the desired quantity. By clicking on the "shopping cart" icon at the top right, you can view or change your current selection and number of products at any time. The unit price, the VAT included and the total price are displayed.

c) Click on the button "Checkout" to continue the ordering process. We now need your personal details as well as your billing and delivery address. You will then receive information about the delivery and can select the desired method of payment (see point 4 below).

d) Before completing the order process, the following information will be displayed again as an overview:

  • Links to these T&Cs associated with the request to confirm your agreement. You can save these GTC in reproducible form.
  • Name, delivery address, billing address and desired payment method
  • desired number of products, unit price, shipping costs, included VAT and total price

f) Under the order overview (see above 3. d) there is a button "order subject to payment". By pressing this button, you declare bindingly that you wish to purchase the ordered products at the total price stated and thus submit a binding offer.
