3.6 Account Email.
To use the Pik Pak service, the Client must maintain a valid email, that does not have any spam protection to block Pik Pak’s automated notification emails from being received.

To be eligible for our Services, the Client must be at least 18 years old and a resident of the Australia or one of the countries with which the Pik Pak fulfilment service can complete a transaction. This Agreement applies to all Users, regardless of the country in which they reside.

5 Sending merchandise to Pik Pak
5.1 Receiving Requirements – Noncompliance Fees.
Pik Pak has strict receiving requirements. If these requirements are not met, the Client may incur additional fees. Qualified inventory is inventory that is received properly, meaning:
Each shipping label has a properly formatted shipping address, including Advanced Shipping Notification Number (ASN#).
There is one ASN # per freight tracking number.
All ASN numbers are less than 2 weeks (10 business days) old.
For each ASN #, the actual quantities match the reported quantities.
The dimensions and weight are correct.
If the Client sent 10 or more cubic metres to Pik Pak on one ASN #, the Client properly scheduled a delivery window and have written confirmation (from Pik Pak) 48 hours in advance.
New inventory has clear SKU labels corresponding with SKUs in the Clients’ account, and is packaged for handling.
Inventory is received cleanly organised, boxed and/or stacked. SKUs are packaged together, unmixed.
Pik Pak is not liable for any duties, customs or fees related to the inventory.
Inventory that does not meet these criteria will be classified as non compliant inventory. Non compliant inventory is subject to a fee of AUD $80 per ASN number, plus AUD $2.50 per associated item. If dimensions or weight are later discovered to be in error, the penalty will apply retrospectively, as will a surcharge comparable to the under recovered shipping fees. Also additional fees may apply for labour needed to make compliant, label or otherwise reconcile the Clients’ inventory. Finally, the Client agrees that Pik Pak may simply refuse or return any shipment it deems severely non compliant, at the Clients’ cost, and shall not be liable or responsible for any cost, expense, loss, injury, incorrect consignments, or damage of any nature to, or related to, such refused goods. Whether Pik Pak accepts or refuses goods the Client agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Pik Pak from any and all claims for transportation, storage, handling and other charges relating to such goods, including undercharges, all demurrage, intermodal detention and other charges of any nature.
Pik Pak shall not be responsible for segregating inventory by production code date. If this is required, we recommend the Client create a unique SKU for each production.
Receiving Accuracy Disclaimer: Upon receiving, Pik Pak does not audit for accuracy all product weights and measurements or all inventory counts stated in the merchant ASN. Pik Pak will often conduct random “spot check” receipts for accuracy. If the Client would like Pik Pak to audit the Clients inventory levels or product attributes (weight and dimensions) for products in storage or as packaged for shipment the Client must initiate a stock audit. Pik Pak specifically disclaims responsibility for the accuracy of product attributes (weight and dimensions) being entered into the Pik Pak system by customers. The merchant is specifically responsible for product attribute accuracy.
In the case of production of kitting lots, where a unit represents multiple individual units bundled together, Pik Pak does not audit for accuracy that any specific number of individual units are correctly represented, without a special arrangement subject to a charge.
The Client will provide Pik Pak with information concerning the stored inventory which is accurate, complete and sufficient to allow Pik Pak to comply with all laws and regulations concerning the storage, handling and transporting of the stored inventory. The Client will indemnify and hold any Warehouse harmless from all loss, cost, penalty and expense (including reasonable legal fees) which Pik Pak pays or incurs as a result of the Client failing to fully discharge this obligation.
5.2 Monthly fees.
The Clients monthly fee will begin, or will be adjusted accordingly, immediately upon completion of the Receipt Booking Confirmation in the Clients Account. The Receipt Booking Confirmation is what provides the shipping address and ASN # needed to send us merchandise. Storage charges become applicable upon the date that inventory is delivered to Pik Pak, regardless of unloading date or date of warehouse receipt. A full month’s storage charge will apply on all goods received between the first and last day, inclusive, of a billing month, and a full month’s storage charge will apply to all goods in storage on the first day of the next and succeeding billing months. All storage charges are due and payable on the first day of storage for the initial month and thereafter on the first day of the billing month.
5.3 Inventory Must Be Free and Clear
Shipments must be free and clear of all duties and fees prior to arriving at Pik Pak. The Client must be the ultimate consignee, and take responsibility for the Clients merchandise clearing any customs, government or carrier inspections. If merchandise arrives at Pik Pak, and customs, duties or fees are applicable to the shipment, these fees will be billed to the Clients account, along with an AUD $500 administration and recovery fee, and the Clients merchandise held until all applicable fees are paid. If notice of fees is determined at a later date, all fees and charges will be immediate and retrospectively. Pik Pak cannot be the named Importer for the Clients merchandise.
5.4 Packing and Marking Requirements.
The Client must comply with all applicable local, state and federal laws, including those governing packing, marking and labelling for all shipments.
Shipments must be prepared or packed to ensure safe carriage with ordinary care in handling.
Each piece must be legibly and durably labelled with the shipping address and ASN #.
Pieces with floor-bearing weight greater than 45kg per square metre must be provided with a skid or base that will reduce the floor-bearing weight to 45kg or less per square metre. The skid or base will be included in the gross weight of the piece and must be furnished by the Client.
5.5 Defective Product or Packaging; Obsolescence; Disposal.
Prior to sending a large quantity of merchandise to Pik Pak, we strongly recommend the Client
check product and packaging is suited for transit, and
send a small sample to Pik Pak, and ship it back to the Client, to confirm if the item is suited to shipping.
We reserve the right to refuse, dispose of and/or return at the Client cost any product we deem unfit, dangerous, illegal, requiring special attention, or otherwise interfering with our normal operations. The Client are also liable for any additional labour and materials needed to handle defective product or packaging.
If the Client provides pre-packaged product, we may determine the Clients packaging to be insufficient for shipping, and an outside box required. At our discretion, we may offer an outside box and packaging solution for an additional fee, or we may return the product to the Client at the Clients cost.
Disposing of the Clients merchandise is comparable to shipping, only without the shipping fee. In other words, the merchandise will still be handled as a normal outbound order, with respect to the cost of handling. A sufficient monthly plan is needed to cover the cost of disposing, or shipping, all items, and storage fees will be required until all items are disposed of or shipped out.
5.6 Limited Access to Inventory
Once product is received by Pik Pak, it is unavailable for inspection, exchange or pickup. The Client must submit a standard order for shipping if the Client wishes to move the product to another location. Sending a third party to pickup product, or coming to pickup product for the Client, is not an option. Submitting a large order for shipping may require the Client to upgrade the Client plan accordingly. All plans have a limited set of shipping options available.
Pik Pak will store the goods at, and may without notice move the goods within and between Pik Pak warehouses.
Project price quotes are estimates based on information that the Client has provided and may not include all supplies, hours of work or unexpected project costs. Upon approval of a project estimate and completion of work the Client will be billed for all hours and supplies to complete the Clients project. Pik Pak specifically disclaims liability for any project activities conducted at the Client request that results in modification, damages, changes or errors to the Clients product or product packaging. Receiving and shipping delays may result as project work is being completed. The limit of our liability for project related tasks is the hourly charge for the project work. Pik Pak advises that the Client request and pay for a project sample before requesting bulk modifications to your inventory. Pricing is subject to application and available to members only.
Pik Pak reserves the right to assign a project fee for services or use that it deems at its sole discretion to be excessive or abusive.
Pik Pak reserves the right to request a project to any receiving to ensure compliance with Pik Pak standard receiving requirements. In the event that merchant is requested to pay for such a project, the Clients’ exclusive remedy for non-acceptance are cancellation of receiving or account closure of the Clients’ Pik Pak account, subject to section 11 Closing a Client Account..
6 Shipping merchandise from Pik Pak
6.1 Application of Rates and Charges
Rates and service quotations will be based upon the information provided by the Client, but final rates and service may vary based upon the shipment actually tendered. Charges will be assessed at the rates effective the day the shipment is accepted by us. Due to potential delays beyond the control of Pik Pak, in the discovery of errors, Pik Pak reserves the right to retrospectively assess or adjust fees, and to make certain aspects of an account read only at Pik Pak’s discretion in order to avoid further errors.
6.1.2 Chargeable Weight.
Due to capacity restrictions on freight vehicles all shipment charges are subject to the greater of the actual weight or the cubic dimension weight (“Cubic Weight”). Each shipment tendered to Pik Pak is charged according to the actual weight or the Cubic Weight, whichever is greater.
Actual Weight is the weight determined by measuring the shipment on a certified scale.
Cubic weight is calculated by using the following density factors;
250kg/cubic metre for domestic shipments,
160kg/cubic metre for airfreight domestic or international parcel shipments,
Cubic Weight is calculated using the formula (length in metres) x (width in metres) x (height in metres), multiplied by the density factor. Cubic Weight is always rounded up to the next whole kilogram, and calculated on the total external dimensions for all pieces contained in the shipment.
Example: 0.4m x 0.2m x 0.1m, actual weight 1Kg. Cubic Weight = (0.4 x 0.2 x 0.1) x 250 = 2Kg. Therefore the Cubic Weight will apply as the Chargeable Weight
6.1.3 Additional Fees.
Fees related to Customs and security, failed pickup or delivery, labour and waiting time, and amending consignments, may be assessed additional charges and may incur additional transit day(s). Pik Pak further reserves the right to bill additional fees, along with Pik Pak administrative fees, for address corrections and other carrier adjustments that are billed to Pik Pak.
When using a third party carrier in conjunction with Pik Pak services, the Client shall be responsible for any associated fees billed to Pik Pak. Pik Pak shall not be responsible for determining if fees are correct, delivering messages between the carrier and the Client, or otherwise acting as an intermediary. If an invoice arrives at Pik Pak, for fees applicable to the Clients shipment, these fees will be billed to the Clients account, along with an AUD $500 administration and recovery fee, and the Clients merchandise held until all applicable fees are paid. If notice of fees is determined at a later date, all fees and charges will be immediate and retrospectively. Pik Pak shall not refund any fees or charges, and specifically disclaims any liability for third party carrier fees.
6.1.4 Remote Area Charges
A shipment that originates from, or is destined to, a rural location or a location remote from a commercial centre may be assessed additional charges and may incur additional transit day(s).
6.1.5 Fuel Surcharges
Most carriers apply fuel surcharges, you the Client are responsible for any applicable fuel surcharges.
6.1.6 Product Descriptions and Item Master Information
When the Client inputs new products into Pik Pak the Client must give weight and product dimensions. Please ensure these weights and dimensions are accurate, Pik Pak relies on these for shipping cost estimates. If the Clients weight or dimensions are smaller than actual, Pik Pak shipping estimates will be low and when the actual shipping price is incurred by the carrier the Clients account will be back-billed the difference. If the Clients shipping weights and dimensions are too large Pik Pak will overpay the postage and the carrier will not notify Pik Pak or the Client of the overpayment; Pik Pak will not be responsible for refunds for overpayment of carrier fees due to erroneous product weight or dimensions. If the Client does not know the exact product weight and dimensions Pik Pak requires they submit a project request form through the Clients Pik Pak interface and we will provide an estimated hourly cost to audit the Clients inventory for weight and dimensions. Please note also that our shipping costs are estimates until approved/billed by carriers. Pik Pak reserves the right to edit dimensions and weight at its discretion.
6.1.7 Shippable Addresses.
The Client is responsible for the accuracy and deliverability of order shipping addresses. Pik Pak may, at its discretion, occasionally attempt to verify some order shipping addresses, but this is not a replacement for merchant address diligence and verification. If Pik Pak provides an order shipping estimate on the basis of an address later discovered to be inaccurate or incomplete, the merchant may be responsible for any applicable address correction fees, or for any difference in shipping cost due to differences in between the merchant-provided address and the actual address. Examples of discrepancies for which the merchant may be responsible include, but are not limited to, incomplete addresses, commercial/residential address status, and rural address status.
6.1.8 International Shipping
Pik Pak offers International shipping from most warehouses on a best endeavours basis. Pik Pak must offer International shipping as “best endeavours” because we cannot guarantee delivery due to the large number of variable elements beyond our control involved with international shipping and cross border logistics.
Pik Pak offers International shipping from most warehouses on a best endeavours basis. Pik Pak must offer International shipping as “best endeavours” because we cannot guarantee delivery due to the large number of variable elements beyond our control involved with international shipping and cross border logistics.
For this reason Pik Pak offers local warehouses in Australia and New Zealand. Whenever possible, Pik Pak recommend, the Client should locate inventory and ship locally. Pik Pak will not refund or guarantee an international shipment that was lost or returned. Pik Pak advises that all international shipments be tracked and insured.
6.1.9 Quotation Estimates
Quotations as to fees, rates of duty, freight charges, insurance premiums or other charges given by us to the Client are for informational purposes only and are subject to change without notice and shall not under any circumstances be binding upon us unless we in writing specifically undertake the handling or carriage of the shipment at a specific rate.
Quotations accepted through Pik Pak’s online interface are estimates based on the information the Client has supplied. The Clients final shipping charge may differ based on carrier shipping prices, the actual characteristics of the Clients product, the delivery address, and services requested during the normal course of delivery. Pik Pak specifically disclaims liability for any shipping rate errors due to information the Client has supplied, such as dimensions and weights the Client has entered into our system. Pik Pak disclaims liability for any shipping rate errors due to failures in communication with shipping carriers that are outside of Pik Pak’s control.

6.3 Conditions of Transportation.
Except as otherwise provided for herein, Pik Pak assumes no obligation to commence or complete transportation of a shipment within any specific period. Pik Pak will determine the routing of any shipment not routed by the Client, including the mode of transportation used, and may use air transportation, ground transportation, ocean transportation or any combination thereof in providing shipping services. Pik Pak reserves the right to divert any shipment (including use of other carriers) in order to facilitate its delivery. The carriage charges for a shipment will be based on the corresponding rates scale, calculated using the origin to destination, plus the addition of all applicable additional charges. Pik Pak shall not be liable for delays in obtaining and loading cars, trailers or other containers for outbound shipment. Any warehouse shall have a reasonable time to make delivery after inventory is ordered out and shall have a minimum of 10 business days after receipt of a delivery order in which to locate any misplaced inventory.
When goods are ordered out, in the case of acts of God, war, public enemies, seizure under legal process, strikes, lockouts, riots and civil commotions, or any reason beyond Pik Pak’s control, or because of loss or destruction of goods for which Pik Pak is not liable, or because of any other excuse provided by law, Pik Pak shall not be liable for failure to carry out such instructions and goods remaining in storage will continue to be subject to regular storage charges.
If Pik Pak has exercised reasonable care and is unable, due to causes beyond its control, to effect delivery before expiration of the current storage period, the inventory will be subject to storage charges for each succeeding storage period.
All instructions and requests for delivery of inventory or transfer of title are received subject to satisfaction of all charges, liens and security interests of Pik Pak with respect to the inventory whether for accrued charges, unpaid fees, or advances or otherwise.
Pik Pak may require, as a condition precedent to delivery, a statement from the Client holding Pik Pak harmless from claims of others asserting a superior right to the Client to possession of the inventory. Nothing herein shall preclude Pik Pak from exercising any other remedy available to it under the law to resolve conflicting claims to possession of the inventory.
We reserve the right to use alternate carriers or services that provide comparable service levels, as determined by Pik Pak. In these cases, pricing will remain as initially quoted. Pik Pak reserves the right to modify service levels and carrier options at any time.

Merchandise returned directly to Pik Pak without a proper ASN # or RAN #, including undeliverable shipments, will either be refused or discarded.

Further, the Client agrees that the condition of a return is subjective, and that Pik Pak is in no way liable for inspection, or for storing, handling, disposing of, or reshipping returns that appear damaged.

All inbound deliveries of Goods under this Agreement shall be made in accordance with the Receiving Requirements specified in section 5
9.1 Monthly Fees.
Fees are listed on the Pik Pak website, at www.PikPak.com.au Note that items are billed to the month they are actually shipped. For example, if the Client submits an order on Saturday, January 31, the order may not ship until Monday, February 02, and a monthly plan will be needed for the month of January. Pik Pak monthly fee pricing is subject to change. Should the Client change plans during or at the end of any month, the Clients previous pricing plan may no longer be available.
9.2 Shipping Fees.
Pik Pak pays the Clients shipping fees as they occur, as well as any fees for additional services the Client requests. Each of these fees is debited from the Clients Pik Pak account balance on or about the week of activity.
9.3 Additional Item Fees.
NOT APPLICABLE – Intentionally left blank.
9.4 Currency Fluctuations.
While Pik Pak strives to reduce the effects on merchants from currency fluctuations, Pik Pak reserves the right at its discretion to adjust warehouse pricing immediately in response to currency fluctuations.
10 Account Balances.
The Client must maintain a minimum balance to cover estimated shipment cost. The minimum balance is recalculated weekly, based on the Clients inventory during the previous week.
10.2 Waiver of credit card dispute process.
The use of a credit card often includes the ability to dispute payments made with that card pursuant to certain dispute resolution rules and procedures provided in the agreement the Client has with the credit card company. Additionally, Pik Pak’s ability to receive payment of its fees and costs via credit card is pursuant to a form of merchant services agreement which contains its own rules and procedures for dispute resolution, including rules and procedures parallel to those associated with the Clients credit card. By using the Pik Pak service, the Client agrees to waive any and all rights the Client may have to utilise the dispute resolution rules and procedures provided with the Clients credit card and those related to Pik Pak’s merchant services agreement. The Clients submission further confirms that the Client will rely exclusively on the dispute resolution procedures provided in the agreed terms of service with Pik Pak.
10.3 Waiver of PayPal dispute process.
The use of PayPal includes the ability to dispute payments made with PayPal pursuant to certain dispute resolution rules and procedures provided in the agreement the Client has with PayPal. Additionally, Pik Pak’s ability to receive payment of its fees and costs via PayPal is pursuant to a form of merchant services agreement which contains its own rules and procedures for dispute resolution, including rules and procedures parallel to those associated with the Clients PayPal account. By using the Pik Pak service, the Client agree to waive any and all rights the Client may have to utilise the dispute resolution rules and procedures provided by PayPal and those related to Pik Pak’s merchant services agreement.

11 Closing a Client Account.
11.1 How to close a Client Account.
Once the Client depletes all inventories, the Clients monthly fee will automatically turn off. The Clients account will remain available to the Client at no charge, unless the Client requests additional services.
11.2 Limitations on closing a Client Account.
The Clients monthly fee will continue as long as Pik Pak is carrying inventory for the Client. If inventory remains in the Clients Account, and the Client wishes to stop the monthly fee, the Client must ship the inventory to the Client, or elsewhere, in the same manner as shipping inventory to the Clients customers. The Client must submit a standard order, and use one of our standard shipping services only. The Client must have a sufficient plan for shipping the number of items. If the Client does not wish to modify the Clients plan, and the Clients current plan is insufficient for shipping all the Clients inventory in the current month, the Client will need to spread the shipment over several months, and stay within the limits of the Clients current plan.
The Client may not close an Account to evade an investigation. If the Client attempt to close an Account while we are conducting an investigation, we may hold the Clients funds and inventory for up to 180 Days to protect Pik Pak or a third party against the risk of Reversals, Charge backs, Claims, fees, fines, penalties and other liability. The Client will remain liable for all obligations related to the Clients Account even after the Account is closed.
11.3 Insufficient Funds.
It is the Clients responsibility to make sure there are sufficient funds in the Clients account to cover any pending monthly or shipping fees. If the Client have a credit card on file, we will attempt to charge the Clients card as needed. If at any time additional funds are required, and no valid credit card is available, the Clients account will be placed on hold, and a AUD $45 fee will be assessed. Pik Pak will attempt to re-bill the Clients account 24 hours later. If funds remain unavailable, and a valid credit card remains unavailable, the Clients account will be assessed another AUD $45 fee. This process will repeat for 30 days, at which time the account will be reclassified as an Abandoned Account.
11.4 Abandoned Account and Liquidation.
If the Clients fees remain unpaid for a period of 30 days, the Clients account will be reclassified as an Abandoned Account. All rights to ownership of funds and inventory are immediately forfeited by the Client. Inventory will become immediately and irrevocably unavailable, and liquidation proceedings will begin. The Client agrees the inventory will be free and clear of liability, and that the Client will assume any liability therefore. The Client will have no rights to the liquidation proceeds subject to section 15 Lien.
12 Force Majeure
Neither party shall be liable to the other, or be in default under the terms of this Agreement, for failure to observe any provisions of this Agreement (other than obligation to pay money), for any reason or cause which could not with reasonable diligence be controlled or prevented by the party in question including, without limitation, strikes, lock outs, labour disputes, acts of God, acts of nature, acts of governments, fires, floods, storms, riots, power failure, war sabotage or inability to obtain sufficient raw material, fuel utilities, provided that;

There are 3 classes of account closure and limited access, which the Client accepts as pre-conditions to using the Pik Pak Service:
18.3.1 Held Accounts.
Pik Pak reserves the right to place an account on hold for reasons, including but not limited to the following:
A customer complaint about a merchant.
A held account is inaccessible to the merchant, and all activity is held.

18.3.3 Termination with 30 days notice.
Pik Pak reserves the right to terminate an account with 30 days notice, with no cause or reason. Termination with 30 days notice is where we send the Client one email notifying the Client of termination in 30 days, without cause. The Client will receive a second notice 15 days prior. It is the Clients responsibility to make sure Pik Pak has a working email for the Client. The Client may have full or limited use of the Clients account during this time, at our discretion, with the intention of allowing the Client to expire existing inventory without it being shipped back to the Client.
Any inventory that remains on the 30th day will be shipped to the billing address on the Clients account, at the Clients expense. If no address is available, we immediately liquidate the Clients remaining inventory. See section 15 Lien.
18.4 Minimum Balance and Service Levels.
When managing risk for Accounts, we take various steps, such as establishing a minimum balance, changing the speed or method of receiving or shipping, and/or requiring the Client to deposit funds with us as security for the Clients obligations to us or third parties. The following types of events may cause us to increase the minimum balance or decrease the service levels for a specific account, beyond what is standard and customary for other Pik Pak Users:
The Client cease a substantial portion of or the Clients business or adversely alter the Clients business/operations;
There is a material adverse change in the Clients business;
The Clients business becomes insolvent;
We receive a disproportionate number of customer complaints, Reversals, Charge backs, Claims, fees, fines, penalties or other liability related to the Clients Account; or
We reasonably believe that the Client will not be able to perform the Clients obligations under this Agreement, or any other agreement the Client have entered into with Pik Pak.
Pik Pak may immediately increase the minimum balance, and modify the receiving or shipping service levels, if we reasonably believe that it is warranted under this section. Pik Pak will provide the Client with notice specifying these changes. The Client may close the Clients Account if the Client objects to the changes. We may increase or decrease the amount of the Minimum Balance, provided that in our reasonable judgment the amount of the Minimum Balance is related to the risk for which it was created. If the Clients Account is closed for any reason, we have the right to hold the Minimum Balance for up to 180 Days.
18.5 Acceptable Use Policy Violation
If the Client violate Pik Pak Acceptable Use Policy as set forth below in sections (a), (b), or (c) below, then we may fine the Client AUD $1000.00 for each such violation and may take legal action against the Client to recover additional losses we incur. The Client acknowledges and agree that AUD $1000.00 is presently a reasonable minimum estimate of Pik Pak’s damages, considering all currently existing circumstances, including the relationship of the sum to the range of harm to Pik Pak that reasonably could be anticipated and the anticipation that proof of actual damages may be impractical or extremely difficult. Pik Pak may deduct such fines directly from any existing Balance in the offending Account, or any other Pik Pak Account the Clients control. The specific activities that may subject the Client to fines by Pik Pak are:
Using the Service to receive or ship merchandise for any sexually oriented or obscene materials or services;
Using the Service to receive or ship merchandise for any weapons, narcotics, other controlled substances, steroids or prescription drugs in violation of the Prescription Drugs and Illegal Drugs and Drug Paraphernalia elements of the Acceptable Use Policy; or

19 Errors and Unauthorised Transactions.
The Client can inspect the Clients transaction history at any time by logging in to the Clients Account on the Pik Pak website and clicking the “History” tab. It is very important that the Client immediately notify Pik Pak if the Client has reason to believe any of the following activities (“Improper Account Access”) have occurred: (i) there has been an unauthorised transaction from the Clients Account; (ii) there has been an unauthorised access to the Clients Account; (iii) the Clients password has been compromised.
19.2 Notifying Pik Pak of Improper Account Access
If the Client believes there has been or will be an error or unauthorised transaction on the Clients Account, contact us by going to www.PikPak.com.au, clicking the Contact Us link on the bottom of the page, and emailing or calling us without delay.
19.3 Review of Reports
We will advise the Client of the results of our investigation within 10 Business Days after we receive the Clients notice (or 20 Business Days for transactions done at a point of sale terminal or outside Australia). If we have made an error, we will correct it promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 Days to investigate the Clients complaint or question (and 90 Days for transactions made at a point of sale terminal or outside Australia). If we decide that we need more time, we will provisionally re-credit the Clients Account for the amount the Client think is in error within 10 Business Days after we receive the Clients notice; so that the Client will have use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If the Client initially provided information to us via the telephone and we do not receive the Clients complaint or question in writing within 10 Business Days after the Clients oral notice, we are not required to provisionally re-credit the Clients Account.
At the end of our investigation, we will advise the Client of the results within 5 Business Days. If we determine that there was no error, we will send the Client a written explanation and we may debit any provisional credit that we previously credited to the Client in relation to the alleged error.
19.4 Liability for Unauthorised Transactions.
If the Client reports and we verify that there has been an Improper Account Access related to the Clients Account, we will reimburse the Client in full for all unauthorised transactions sent from the Clients Account that occur within 5 Days of the time that the Client knew or should have known about the Improper Account Access. If the Client does not report the Improper Account Access to Pik Pak within 5 Days of the time that the Client knew or should have known about it, we will still reimburse the Client in full for all unauthorised transactions that took place within or before that 5-Day period, but the Client may be liable for all unauthorised transactions resulting from the Improper Account Access that occur on Day 6 and beyond (if we can demonstrate that we could have avoided any losses if the Client had notified us in a timely manner).
If we discover a processing error, we will rectify the error.
If the error resulted in the Clients Account Balance displaying less money than the Client was entitled to, Pik Pak will credit the Clients Account for the difference. If the error resulted in the Clients Account Balance displaying more money than the Client was entitled to, Pik Pak may debit the extra funds from the Clients Pik Pak Account. If the error resulted in our not completing a shipment with the proper quantity, we will reship the additional items at no charge, unless:
through no fault of ours, the Client did not have enough available funds to complete the transaction,
our system was not working properly and the Client knew about the breakdown when the Client submitted the order, or
circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood or loss of Internet connection) prevented the transaction, despite our reasonable precautions.

$0.50 per kilo for said lost, damaged, and/or destroyed inventory. Provided, however that within a reasonable time after receipt of this warehouse receipt, the Client may add inventory insurance on part or all of the inventory in which case an increased charge will be made based upon such increased coverage; further provided that no such coverage shall be valid unless paid for before loss, damage or destruction to any portion of the inventory has occurred.
Pik Pak’s liability referred to in section 20.13 b) shall be the Clients exclusive remedy against Pik Pak for any claim or cause of action whatsoever relating to loss, damage and/or destruction of inventory and shall apply to all claims including inventory shortage and unexplained disappearance claims unless the Client proves by conclusive evidence that Pik Pak converted the goods to its own use. The Client waives any rights to rely upon any presumption of conversion imposed by law.
