Accepted Payment Methods: You may pay by debit card, credit card or another alternative payment method specified as part of the checkout process. Global E may change the payment methods at any time but this will not affect any existing order. The availability of a certain payment method may depend on your geographical location.
Payment: If you place an order on our Website, then you acknowledge and agree that: (i) Global E will charge you through the payment method you have selected for your order and such other amounts that may accrue in connection with the order; (ii) that you will provide valid and current information for (a) yourself and (b) if applicable, another person, but only if you have first obtained their express consent to do so; (iii) that Global-E may use tools, software or services of payment processors to process transactions on their behalf; and (iv) if your payment is not received by Global-E for any reason from your card issuer, you agree to promptly pay all amounts due upon request and using the method that Global-E reasonably prescribes.
Currency: The price of products is calculated according to the rate of exchange between the base currency on our website and the currency that you select as part of the purchase process at the time you place your order. Global-E reserve the right to update such exchange rates regularly at our sole discretion, and you acknowledge that such updates may affect product pricing on the Website. You will be charged according to the applicable exchange rate at the time you place your order via the Website.
Taxes: For certain shipping destination countries and/or products, you may be offered the option to pre-pay applicable taxes, which will then be calculated and included in the final price when you place an order through the Website. You acknowledge that such taxes are set by the shipping destination country and therefore may vary from country to country.
For clarity, the option to pre-pay taxes may not be available for your shipping destination country and/or your products, in which case: (a) you acknowledge that the amount of taxes displayed under the pre-pay option on the Website is an estimate only, and the actual taxes payable by you may be more or less than such estimate; and (b) you will be fully responsible for paying all applicable taxes directly to the relevant authority (and for reclaiming them in the event of a cancellation of your order or the return of products, to the extent permitted in the these Terms) as determined by the authorities of the shipping destination country, and Global-E shall have no responsibility or liability in connection with the foregoing.

You acknowledge that, in the case of a return of products under the Terms below, if Global E are able to obtain on your behalf reimbursement of taxes paid on orders, any such reimbursement will be paid by the applicable tax authority to the customs broker, and then Global-E will reimburse such amounts directly to you if and to the extent, and only after, we receive such amounts from the customs broker.

5.3. In the event that a cheque or credit card payment is dishonoured by your bank or credit card provider, they (being your bank, credit card provider or any debt collection company that we use to recover the debt) may charge a fee. Where we incur any fee or liability as a result of a dishonoured payment, you will be liable to reimburse us in full for the amount we have incurred.
5.4. All credit and charge card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.

We reserve the right to instruct a third party to complete these checks. By ordering from our website you consent to such checks being made.
