Shipment will be made promptly even if prices have been nominally increased. Price changes will be automatically applied to your invoice. Notwithstanding any price quotation or prices listed by Kemcore, if at any time prior to delivery Kemcore’s costs of materials have increased by 5% or more, then Kemcore may cancel any accepted but undelivered orders or condition the continuance of any order on your agreement to a corresponding increase in price.
We aim to offer competitive prices on all of our chemicals. Doing business with Kemcore.com is very rewarding on a lot of levels. You can relax and enjoy the experience, which isn’t something that can be said of many experiences in importing chemicals from China. Of course, you want to know that you’re getting a good deal. So, with that in mind we’ll generally match any prices that you might find at competitor sites or trader. Rest assured that we’re working in good faith to ensure you’re pleased with your purchase. For a product to be price matched, it must meet the following criteria:
- The product must be the same product, i.e. the same quality and specification.
- The product must be available, i.e. in stock, at the competitor at the time you want to purchase.
- The product must be supplied by a Chinese manufacturing company, i.e. not from a trader or distributor company due to their unreliable quality. Read our case studies here.
- Where we match a competitor's price we will take the competitor’s shipping cost into account to work out the total price incase of CIF.
- We will match only against the formal quotation price offered by the competitor.
- Price matches can be made only at the time of purchase.
To take advantage of our Price Pledge
- By speaking to one of our agents on +852 3478 7314. They will check that the match is valid and complete the transaction for you.
- Simply provide evidence of the lower price. This can be, for example, an official quotation.
