International transaction charges
Please be aware that purchases made from the Online Shop with VISA and MasterCard carry an international service charge for cross border transactions (i.e. where you are in a different country to the Green Roots company that you’re buying from, as listed in the introduction above) depending on the card issuer and type of credit card. This is generally between 1-5% of the purchase total, but it may be higher. It is your responsibility to be aware of the international service charges that your credit card issuer may charge. We do not take receipt of these fees so we are unable to refund them in any way.
International sales taxes
Depending on where you are in the world, your order from the Online Shop may be subject to a sales tax that is calculated up-front as part of your purchase and will be notified to you at the time of your purchase.
In addition, please be aware that delivery of products to some regions may incur a customs/sales tax that is payable on delivery of the physical items that you have ordered.

If you aren’t sure, contact us and we’ll do our best to help you. Being aware of your local tax laws is your responsibility, and we are unable to refund any amount charged at the point of delivery as Green Roots does not receive any amount of these additional taxes.
Credit card verification codes
Unless you have a Shop Account, the third party payment gateway will require you to provide your Credit Card Verification Code (or CVC) in order to process your payment. The CVC is a number that appears on your credit card that allows us to verify that the person placing the order has direct access to the credit card being used.

Please contact us within 30 days of receiving your order, and we can arrange the delivery of your revised order upon our receipt of your original purchase. Re-delivery will incur additional postage charges, which we will make you aware of at the time of re-order.
Changing Your Mind – if you live in Pakistan
You have the right, under consumer laws, to a “cooling off” period of 7 days from the date you receive your products, during which time you can change your mind (which depends on the type of product and company policy at the time of claim) and receive a refund (subject to certain deductions – see below).
To change your mind, please let us know within the 7-day cooling off period by contacting us. We will get in touch with you as soon as we can and give you the address to which you need to send your return. You need to make sure you send the products back within 7 days of telling us you want to change your mind. You will need to pay the costs of return postage.
Within 7 days of receiving your returned product, provided it is in a perfect, unused condition, we will refund you the amount you paid by the same method as your original payment, including the initial delivery cost at the least expensive rate. So, for example, if you have paid for express delivery, we cannot refund the additional cost of the express delivery over the cost of the standard rate. For partial returns, refund amounts will be calculated against any discounts claimed at the time of ordering (e.g. 3 for 2, % off, free postage offers, etc). We cannot refund any credit card fees, brokerage fees or import duties, as these amounts go directly to third parties, not us.
If we do not receive your returned product, we cannot refund it, so please ensure you keep your proof of return postage.
