5. Price and payment terms
The prices stipulated in the rates and / or price offers or quotes from Achat Cloud are expressed in euros, excluding taxes, from our warehouses. All fees, duties and taxes are the responsibility of the Customer. Any previously granted discount may be changed with each new order. For the Products, the transport costs are fixed at the delivery according to the tariff in force at the time of the order of the Customer.
Invoices are issued for the Products when they are shipped from our warehouse. They are usually already paid by the Customer when placing the order. Exceptionally and for specific deals the invoice may be made payable at thirty (30) days if Achat Cloud gives it’s acceptance. However, with respect to any new Customer, or in case of default or delay of a Customer in the payment of a previous invoice. Achat Cloud reserves the right to demand cash payment. Drafts sent for acceptance must be returned to us within eight weeks of their shipment. The due date of the payment is stipulated in clear on the invoice.
In the case of payment by direct debit to the Customer’s account, the Customer undertakes to change his bank details, expiration or change of credit card, to update his bank details in the space reserved for his Account or by sending them by email to Achat Cloud. Moreover, if the Customer has a credit line granted by Achat Cloud to pay his invoices at a defined term (eg 30 days, …) then any new order increasing the total of the amounts of this new invoice and those due to an amount greater than the credit line granted will automatically lead to the automatic direct debit of old invoices before their due date so that the sum of the amounts of the invoices due and the new order is less than the amount of the granted credit line. If the Customer has not given a direct debit authorization then Achat Cloud may request the payment of old invoices before their due date to accept the order and proceed to delivering it to the Customer.
6. Late payment
Any amount unpaid on its due date will automatically be charged with interests at the rate of one and a half times the rate of legal interest. In addition, any delay or refusal of payment at the due date will lead, automatically, after a formal notice sent by email or by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt and which still remains unsuccessful after eight (8) days after its dispatch, to additional late interest fees at the conventional rate of 1% per month. The late payment interest will be counted from the 1st day following the payment due date.
In addition, in the event of total or partial non-payment, Achat Cloud will retain any down payments, as a lump sum minimum indemnity without prejudice to any additional damages that it may claim. Finally, in case of doubt about the creditworthiness of the Customer established on the basis of internal data such as late payments of previous invoices, or on that of external data such as, for example, the taking of registration of privileges. Achat Cloud reserves the right to terminate and / or resolve by right, immediately, by the mere issue of an email or a registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt, all orders in progress, without compensation.
In case of payment by direct debit, the Customer agrees to update without delay by means of his Account (s) or by email his bank details or references of his credit card in case of change of his bank details , expiration or change of credit card.

Any late payment, even partial, of a single invoice, automatically entails the forfeiture of the term of all the invoices established by Achat Cloud on behalf of the Customer, which become immediately due. If the contract is concluded for a fixed period, in particular in case of Subscription, the Customer will be liable from the date of failure to pay the full amount remaining to the expiry of the contractual period.
