4. The Order
Before any validation of his or her basket, the Client will be warned that the validation of the order incurs an obligation of payment by clicking on the button “I confirm my order with obligation of payment”
After confirmation of the contents of his or her order, he/she makes a final validation of the transaction by the choice of his/her method of payment and the payment of the sum of the order in its entirety.
If the corresponding field has been correctly filled in, the Client shall then receive an e-mail including a summary of his/her order and its shipping along with the subject of the contract, its contents, price and date. This receipt represents the final step of formalization of the electronic sales contract between Misaki and the Client, until receipt of his/her invoice in the parcel.
Payment for the purchases is carried out exclusively in Euros(€). Misaki expressly requires the Client to observe the payment deadlines that are expressly indicated to him/her at the time of the order. They are mandatory and in the event of failure to pay the outstanding balance by the due date, the debtor Client will be liable, in addition to this balance, for a late penalty based on the rate of interest, at that date, practised by the ECB increased by 10 points and a compensation fee equivalent to 20% of the unpaid balance. This penalty is due automatically, following the formal notice, and due to the fact alone of the failure to observe the expiry date by the debtor; this besides a compensation fee for recovery costs, case fees, and legal fees. Misaki offers two payment solutions:
- Payment by bank card: Misaki only accepts bank cards bearing the logos CB, VISA or MASTERCARD.

It is the responsibility of the Client to keep any evidence of his/her request (e-mail or mail with acknowledgement of receipt.) Any delay in delivery caused by a case of force majeure permits us to suspend or extend the agreed time periods, without this giving rise to any compensation whatsoever for the benefit of the Client. Misaki is responsible for the effective delivery of the products to the Client in the within the limits of the countries where delivery is offered. Transfer of ownership of the products takes place when the Client, or a third party other than the carrier and appointed by the Client, takes physical possession of the goods.
