BtoB TRADING TERMS  -  (Within Australia)


Welcome ~ What we can do for you ~ Consignment Terms

                          Welcome to the Trade Section of our web site!



Surfsands is run “on the smell of an oily rag” with minimal overheads and, in order to “stay in the game”  these days; minimal profit margins.

BUT; there is nothing “minimal” about the range and depth of stock carried.  In particular when it comes to Sapphires, Rubies and Opals.


As far as most of the other Gemstones that we carry are concerned; we can match current selling prices in Bangkok provided the quantity you require is significant, payment is COD, the quality of the Bangkok goods is comparable with ours and that we have in stock what specifically is required.


We are normally happy to accept the “current Bangkok price” as the price quoted by one company, but if that price seem to be abnormally low (perhaps due to dumping, product discontinuation or business closure), we may require prices quoted by other companies, as well.


Business is ultimately about making a profit… that’s why it is critical to know from where to source whatever a customer may want… or loose a sale!

For that purpose, you may like to print the Contact & Products Details page and keep it handy.


Below is “RECEIPT FOR GOODS ON CONSIGNMENT” which sets out our Terms & Conditions under which we supply goods on approval.


                              What WE can do for you… and YOU for us…



WE do not have a minimum quantity and/or value restriction on orders from our frequent/regular customers.


Our normal credit terms to approved customers is 30 days from date of invoice.

We may extend our terms to regular customers whom, for some reason that is relevant to the sale, would like longer terms.


In cases where we have not received, or approved an Application for Account, we can supply by COD or EFT to our bank account.


Although we do charge interest on overdue accounts; we do allow another 30 days grace period, to our regular customers, before interest is applied. The interest, when then applied, is calculated from the invoice’s Due Date.


We don’t have a fixed deadline for returning goods sent to you on approval.  

We recognise that it may not suit a manufacturer to make an instant decision or, if you are a retailer; that it can take many days for your customer to make it back to the store to inspect and decide on a product.


We normally won’t invoice you for goods sent to you on approval, until you advise us to… or, if the goods are not returned when requested by us.


We pay the postage when shipping to you; and


YOU pay the postage when returning approval goods back to us.


Pay invoices on time, else; phone us!    (Hassle free payments converts into hassle free supply… and the supply of goods is a business’ lifeblood!)


Fill in the Application for Account form and submit, fax or mail it.

To avoid having to wait for an Application to be checked, verified and approved sometime in the future and when goods may suddenly be required and time is of the essence, it may be a good idea to have the application processed beforehand.


And lastly; Please bear us in mind whenever you require any goods that we are likely to have.

For that purpose, you may like to print the Contact & Products Details page and keep it handy.
