- The contract for the purchase of the Milola’s articles is concluded upon payment. Payment signifies customers’ recognition of the GTC. When purchasing or ordering Milola’s items using the online shop or in writing, the Customer enters into a legally binding contract by agreeing to these GTC and confirming their order.
- In the event of purchase upon invoice the contract for the purchase of Milola’s articles is concluded upon the order submission, regardless of rendering the payment. By submitting the order the customer has also declared his recognition of the GTC’s.
Ordering and Closing of Sale
- Unless otherwise agreed, all orders must be paid for in full at the time of order.
- If an instalment plan is agreed payments must be made on time as agreed. Milola reserves the right to charge 5% penalties for late payment. No deliveries will be made until the order has been paid for in full.

Characteristic of Goods
- Product specifications and photos are set in accordance with the supplier and are for information purposes only. The photographs on the website and in other advertising by
Milola are as accurate as possible but an exact similarity in terms of size, colour, structure and finish with the product cannot be guaranteed.
Prices and Payment
Prices stated are in Swiss Francs, including VAT. Prices include shipping costs within Switzerland to the kerbside, but do not include the cost of delivery to floor (in the case of an apartment) or assembly. A to-floor delivery service and an assembly and/or recycling of old, dismantled furniture service is offered on request at an additional price.
Prices may be amended at any time without notice, it being understood that the price stated on the website as at the date of the Customer's order will be the relevant price for the Customer's order. Prices listed outside the website (social media, catalogues and other supports) are therefore not contractual and may be subject to change at any time.
- Milola reserves the right not to deliver the goods where the indicated price on the website is found to be incorrect. However, in this case Milola will inform the Customer about the price difference as soon as possible – not later than 3 days from the submission of the order - and will offer the Customer the options to pay the price differential or a receive a full refund.
- Milola offers the customers the following payment methods for purchase of articles: credit card, bank transfer, TWINT and Paypal. Please note that the delivery address and billing address must be the same for the purchase on account payment method. Should this not be the case, the Customer must indicate this and inform Milola prior to the delivery of the ordered items.
Shipping and Delivery
- The geographic coverage of Milola’s shipping and delivery services consist of Switzerland.
- The goods are offered within the limit of available product stock. Milola will inform the Customer as soon as possible after the submission of the order of any availability problems in obtaining stock.
- Milola will put all its efforts into a delivery within the agreed time period and will inform the Customer of any possible delays. It is however agreed and understood that Milola will not be held liable in any respect nor offer any compensation for such delay.
- Milola works with a number of delivery partners, including local parcel services (e.g. La Poste, DHL, Fed-ex or DPD) for small parcels weighing up to 30kg and maximum dimensions of 100x60x60cm. The following delivery terms and conditions (articles 17,18 and 19) apply for those parcels over this size and weight.
- The Customer will be contacted in advance by the Transporter to agree a delivery date and time slot. It is the Customer’s responsibility to ensure they are available for delivery on the agreed date and time. If the Customer – or another recipient - is not available at the agreed time and has not appointed another recipient so the Transporter is unable to make the delivery as initially agreed, the Customer will cover the additional delivery costs and interim storage charge.
- The Customer shall acknowledge receipt of the delivery by signing the delivery slip provided by the transport supplier. The delivered product shall be checked by the Customer to ensure that the delivery corresponds with the delivery slip. In case of discrepancy between the submitted order and the delivered products, the Customer will inform the Transporter and notify Milola immediately.
- If, upon delivery, the package is in bad conditions or shows deterioration, the Customer (or the recipient of the goods) will open the package in the presence of the Transporter to verify the good condition of the goods and will indicate on the delivery slip under ‘reservations’ details of any damage. If the Customer (or the recipient of the goods) notices that the goods have been damaged during the shipping, the Customer has the right to refuse the delivery of the damaged goods and indicate " refused / damaged" on the delivery slip. The Customer shall however, provide a proof of such product damages or failures to Milola, i.e. by sending pictures of the damaged goods and/or packages and inform Milola immediately at the time the delivery is being made by the Transporter.
- If however, the Customer notices any product damage after delivery, it must immediately inform Milola via email (email@example.com) no later than 3 days after the delivery. Milola will not be held responsible for such notices of damage or failure after 3 days and therefore recommends that the Customer thoroughly checks the delivery and inspect the products within the given time window.
- Unless otherwise agreed, the delivery will be made to the entrance (kerbside level) specified by the Customer, provided that reasonable access is possible. If a to-floor service has been agreed, the delivery will be made to the room of the customer’s choice. If ancillary means (e.g. furniture lifts, lifts) are necessary, the Customer must inform Milola in advance and shall cover any additional costs that maybe incurred as a result of such additional services. If an assembly service has been agreed, it will be only carried out if reasonable access is possible.
Order Cancellations and Returns
