(1) the purchaser has current account standing, and (2) the merchandise is in stock and has been properly handled for shipment.

VIS reserves the right to hold any shipment for an account that is not in current standing and will release merchandise only when account is current.

- Incorrect Merchandise – (a) The merchandise ordered differs from the merchandise received. (b) The merchandise needed differs from the merchandise ordered. It does not infer the mistake was solely on part of VIS or purchaser; it is up to the discretion of VIS whether a restocking charge will be assessed on merchandise only. VIS and purchaser will agree upon the method in which the return will be resolved prior to processing of the return.
- Customer Did Not Need – This does not infer a mistake on the purchaser’s part. It indicates that the merchandise was not defective and the correct merchandise was received by the purchaser. It indicates that the purchaser no longer needs the merchandise. It is up to the discretion of VIS whether a restocking charge will be assessed on merchandise only. VIS and purchaser will agree upon the method in which the return will be resolved prior to processing of the return.
- Defective Merchandise – The merchandise will be returned as soon as possible and credit will be processed once credit has been received by VIS from necessary Vendor. VIS has the right to refuse defective merchandise if merchandise looks tampered with or destroyed. Credit will only be given for defective merchandise that does not appear used, old, or damaged by the purchaser.
The restocking charge assessed includes, and is not limited to, necessary freight charges for merchandise return and/or cost to return merchandise to a saleable condition into inventory. The charge will be discussed by VIS and purchaser prior to processing of the credit.

VIS reserves the right to refuse any unwarranted debits to invoices or additional charges on credits.
