If Buyer wishes to sample before delivery, she is obliged to communicate this to Seller at least 3 weeks before planned delivery.

Payment is to take place by a deposit on a bank or giro account provided by Seller. Payment is to take place in the currency used in the Netherlands, including VAT and without settlement. The value date provided on the bank or giro account will be decisive for determining the day of payment.

For out-of-court costs, Buyer owes Seller at least 15% of the principal sum in addition to the already payable interests.
- After establishing the agreement, Seller is entitled to demand payment security, if she has reasonable doubts that Buyer will manage to fulfill its payment obligations to Seller in time or at all.
