Specific Terms and Conditions
6.1 Axiom site E-commerce purchases
The axiom site attempts to display product images shown on the site as accurately as possible. However, we cannot guarantee that the color you see matches the product color, as the display of the color depends, in part, upon the monitor you are using.
Pricing and Selection
Online prices and selection generally follow those in our stores, but may vary. Prices and offers generally are subject to change at any time but will not be changed on any order already placed by you. Prices for products exclude delivery costs, which if applicable will be added to the Customer Invoice in accordance with our current pricing structure (available on request). It is agreed that all prices are inclusive of Value Added Tax (VAT). Where VAT is payable by us the agreed consideration for the supply shall include the amount of VAT payable applicable at the prevailing rate at the time the supply is made as a result of applicable legislation in the United Arab Emirates and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (as applicable).
Errors on Our Site
Mispricing and other errors (such as mistakes in product descriptions, availability or any similar matter) will be corrected where discovered, and the axiom site reserves the right in our complete discretion to cancel any effected orders and refund any amounts paid in full, including after an order has been submitted and whether or not the order has been finally confirmed and your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, Axiom will issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the charge. Individual bank policies will dictate when this amount is credited to your account.
You may pay for your orders with the following methods:
- Credit/Debit card Online (card will be charged when stock is allocated to your order)
- Cash/Credit or Debit card on Delivery (card will be charged immediately on delivery)
When paying for a pre-order with a credit/debit card you will be charged at the time you place your pre-order.
Refunds due to cancellation by Axiom in a retail store or the axiom site for permitted reasons will always follow the same method as the original payment:
- If an order is placed by credit/debit card, the money will be automatically credited back to your bank. This usually takes 10-20 days after Axiom has initiated the refund, depending on your bank.
- For any permitted refunds initiated by you, the refund will follow the same method as the payment and only the value of the item will be refunded and not the shipping charges.
Refund processing is subject to timelines from your bank, and Axiom will not be responsible for any delays once the refund has been issued to the bank from Axiom. Please contact your card issuer for more information.
Using Promotional Codes
Unlike credit or debit cards, Promotional Codes used on Digital Coupons are debited at the time an order is placed. Digital Coupons will automatically be redeemed to purchase totals, up to the total purchase amount. Digital Coupons must be used prior to their noted expiration date and within a single transaction. Digital Coupons cannot be replaced if lost, stolen, deleted, or if you cancel or return your purchase. In the event of a reduction in price below the coupon value, the excess value of the coupon will not be refunded. Digital coupons and vouchers can be used only on the axiom site within the applicable time period as communicated.
Validating Your Order
We reserve the right to reject any order you place with us. After you place an order using our shopping cart, we will check the information you give us for validity, by verifying your method of payment or shipping address. We reserve the right to reject any order you place with us, and/or to limit quantities on any order, without giving any reason. If we reject your order, we will attempt to notify you using the e-mail address you have given us with the order.
Your credit/debit card will normally not be charged if we reject an order, but we will process a refund if the charge has been made against your card.
Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our final acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. The axiom site reserves the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason.
Order Limitations/Limited Quantities
Axiom may, at our own discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by the same axiom site account, the same credit card, and/or that use the same billing and/or shipping address. In the event we make a change to an order, we will attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address provided at the time the order was made. We reserve all rights to limit or prohibit sales if we suspect you are a reseller.
Shipping Costs and Fees
Shipping costs are based on a combination of the following:
- Weight and dimensions of your package;
- Method of shipment (ground, air, sea, rail, etc.);
- Location you are shipping from (city, state, country); and
- Location you are shipping to (the destination country).
We offer free shipping within the UAE, for orders of AED 500 and above. Shipping costs to other countries will be calculated on your shopping cart during checkout.
Costs can be considerably higher for international destinations, and generally do not include additional charges such as duties, taxes, and customs clearance fees. For example, international rates may include pickup and door-to-door delivery. Extended Area Surcharges may apply depending on the international location and are not included in the shipping fees. This should be paid by the customer receiving the items.
Those items for shipment to countries outside of the UAE may be subject to taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of the shipment is the importer of record in the destination country and is responsible for all Import Fees.
Depending on the location, we use our own or third-party courier services.

- Dubai and Sharjah – within 24-48 hours.
- All other Emirates – within 24-72 hours.
- Within the GCC: 5-7 days (depending on clearance times through the relevant authorities).

If we receive a cancellation notice and the order has not been shipped, we shall cancel the order and refund the entire amount. The refund process will take place as noted in the Payments section. We will not be able to cancel orders that have already been shipped. You agree not to dispute our decision and accept this Cancellation Policy.
