ATLAS Editions may modify its prices during the course of collections according to economic circumstances but such changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you an order confirmation email.
6.2 Our Website contains a large number of products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products listed on our Website may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedure so that where a product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the product to you. If a product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our Website, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
6.3 We are under no obligation to provide the product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an order confirmation email if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.

You only pay after you receive each delivery within your subscription collection. Payment cannot be made online. Payments may be made by debit or credit card (MasterCard, Visa, Delta, Solo, Switch/Maestro Card), and by cheque or postal order.. Payments made by credit or debit card help to ensure prompt delivery of your shipments. If you have registered your card details for your subscription, your card will be charged automatically upon despatch of each delivery. We reserve the right to suspend or cancel future deliveries unless full payment including postage costs are paid within the specified period stated on the invoice.
