    • Webbline may in its discretion allocate any payment received from the Customer towards any invoice that Webbline determines and may do so at the time of receipt or at any time afterwards. On any default by the Customer Webbline may re-allocate any payments previously received and allocated. In the absence of any payment allocation by Webbline, payment will be deemed to be allocated in such manner as preserves the maximum value of Webbline’s Purchase Money Security Interest (as defined in the PPSA) in the Goods/Equipment.

The Customer must pay GST, without deduction or set off of any other amounts, at the same time and on the same basis as the Customer pays the Price. In addition, the Customer must pay any other taxes and duties that may be applicable in addition to the Price except where they are expressly included in the Price.
  7. Delivery of Goods/Equipment
    • Delivery (“Delivery”) of the Goods/Equipment is taken to occur at the time that:
      • the Customer or the Customer’s nominated carrier takes possession of the Goods/Equipment at Webbline’s address; or
      • Webbline (or Webbline’s nominated carrier) delivers the Goods/Equipment to the Customer’s nominated address even if the Customer is not present at the address.
    • At Webbline’s sole discretion the cost of delivery is either included in the Price or is in addition to the Price.
    • Webbline may deliver the Goods/Equipment in separate instalments. Each separate instalment shall be invoiced and paid in accordance with the provisions in these terms and conditions.
    • Any time specified by Webbline for Delivery of the Goods/Equipment is an estimate only and Webbline will not be liable for any loss or damage incurred by the Customer as a result of Delivery being late. However both parties agree that they shall make every endeavour to enable the Goods/Equipment to be delivered at the time and place as was arranged between both parties. In the event that Webbline is unable to supply the Goods/Equipment as agreed solely due to any action or inaction of the Customer, then Webbline shall be entitled to charge a reasonable fee for redelivery and/or storage.
  8. Goods On Consignment
    • Where Goods are supplied on consignment the following provisions apply specifically to those Goods:
      • the Goods shall be at the Customer’s risk from the time of delivery and the Customer shall be responsible for insuring the Goods; and

    • If any of the Goods are damaged or destroyed following Delivery but prior to ownership passing to the Customer, Webbline is entitled to receive all insurance proceeds payable for the Goods. The production of these terms and conditions by Webbline is sufficient evidence of Webbline’s rights to receive the insurance proceeds without the need for any person dealing with Webbline to make further enquiries.
    • If the Customer requests Webbline to leave Goods outside Webbline’s premises for collection or to deliver the Goods to an unattended location then such Goods shall be left at the Customer’s sole risk.

    • Webbline shall be entitled to rely on the accuracy of any specifications and other information provided by the Customer. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that in the event that any of this information provided by the Customer is inaccurate, Webbline accepts no responsibility for any loss, damages, or costs however resulting from these inaccurate specifications or other information.
    • The Customer acknowledges and accepts that
      • Goods supplied may exhibit variations in shade, colour, texture, surface and finish, and may fade or change colour over time.

      • Goods supplied by Webbline shall comply with applicable safety and industry standards.
