Sales Terms & Conditions


The following are the terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) for the sale of products (“Products”) by Rapid Manufacturing (“Rapid”) to Rapid’s customers (“Customers”).


All orders are subject to acceptance in writing by Rapid or a duly authorized agent of Rapid. Any written acknowledgement of receipt of an order shall not, in and of itself, constitute such acceptance. All products purchased by Customers shall be deemed Non-Cancellable/Non-Returnable “NC/NR”. Customer requests to reschedule are subject to acceptance by Rapid in its sole discretion. Orders may not be rescheduled after the order has been submitted by Rapid to the shipment carrier.

1a. Returns

Contact a sales representative for a Return Materials Authorization Number and addressing instructions prior to returning product. Claims for defective material shall be made in writing. No product will be accepted for return unless authorized in writing by Rapid. If Rapid agrees to accept a return, return freight charges must be prepaid by customer. Rapid will not accept COD shipments. If it is a reject, Rapid will pay freight charges.


Prices will be as specified by Rapid and will be applicable for the period specified in Rapid’s quote. If no period is specified, quoted prices will be applicable for thirty (30) days. Prices are subject to increase in the event of an increase in Rapid’s costs or other circumstances beyond Rapid’s reasonable control. If Customer does not purchase the quantity upon which quantity prices are based, Customer will pay the non-discounted price for the quantity actually purchased. Prices are exclusive of taxes, impositions and other charges, including sales, use, excise, value-added and similar taxes or charges imposed by any government authority, international shipping charges, forwarding agent’s and broker’s fees, bank fees, consular fees, and document fees.


All payments must be made in the currency billed on the original invoice.


For All Orders

Customer agrees to pay the entire net amount of each invoice from Rapid pursuant to the terms of each such invoice, without offset or deduction. Orders are subject to credit approval by Rapid, which may in its sole discretion at any time change the terms of Customer’s credit, require payment in cash, bank wire transfer/EFT or by official bank check, and/or require payment of any or all amounts due or to become due for Customer’s order before shipment of any or all of the Products. If Rapid reasonably believes that the Customer’s ability to make payments may be impaired or if Customer fails to pay any invoice when due, Rapid may suspend delivery of any order or any remaining balance thereof, until such payment is made or cancel any order or any remaining balance thereof. Customer will remain liable to pay for any Products already shipped and all Products ordered by Customer. Customer agrees to submit such financial information as Product may reasonably require for determination of credit terms and/or continuation of credit terms. Checks are accepted subject to collection and the date of collection will be deemed the date of payment. Any check received from Customer may be applied by Rapid against any obligation owing by Customer to Rapid under this or any other contract, regardless of any statement appearing on or referring to such check, without discharging Customer’s liability for any additional amounts owing by Customer to Rapid. The acceptance by Rapid of such check will not constitute a waiver of Rapid’s right to pursue the collection of any remaining balance. Invoices not paid when due will bear interest to date of payment at the annual rate of eighteen (18%) percent or such lower rate as may be the maximum permitted by law. If Customer fails to make payment when due, Rapid may pursue any legal or equitable remedies, in which event Rapid will be entitled to reimbursement of costs for collection and reasonable attorneys’ fees. There is a $25 (USD) service charge on all returned checks.


US Shipments

When required by law Rapid will collect Federal, State and/or Local sale, use, excise, and other taxes that apply to a Customer’s shipment. These taxes are in addition to the purchase price of the Products subject to an order. Customer will remit the correct tax unless customer is tax exempt and Rapid has a valid signed tax exemption certificate on file.


All applicable VAT, PST, HST, and/or GST charges along with brokerage fees will be the responsibility of the Customer and due at the time of delivery.


All shipments by Rapid are F.O.B. point of shipment from Rapid’s facility and the amount of all transportation charges will be paid to Rapid by the Customer in addition to the purchase price of the Products. Subject to Rapid’s right of stoppage in transit, delivery of the Products to the carrier will constitute delivery to Customer and title and risk of loss will pass to Customer. Rapid will make reasonable efforts to initiate shipment and schedule delivery as close as possible to Customer’s requested delivery date(s). Customer acknowledges that delivery dates provided by Rapid are estimates only and that Rapid will not be liable for failure to deliver on such dates. Selection of the carrier and delivery route will be made by Rapid unless specifically designated by Customer. Rapid reserves the right to make deliveries in installments. Delay in delivery of one installment will not entitle Customer to cancel any other installment(s). Delivery of any installment of Products within thirty (30) days after the date requested will constitute a timely delivery. Delivery of a quantity that varies from the quantity specified shall not relieve Customer of the obligation to accept delivery and pay for the Products delivered.


All supplied items by Rapid are warranted to be free from defects in workmanship under normal use and service for a period of one year. Rapid agrees to transfer to Customer whatever transferable warranties Rapid receives from the manufacturer of Products sold to Customer.

Customer’s recovery from Rapid for any claim shall not exceed the purchase price paid by Customer for the goods, irrespective of the nature of the claim, whether in warrant, contract or otherwise. CUSTOMER SHALL INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD RAPID HARMLESS FROM ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY ANY PARTY REGARDING PRODUCTS SUPPLIED BY MOUSER AND INCORPORATED INTO THE CUSTOMER’S PRODUCT.
