If JIIJ believes you are involved in purchase for resale, JIIJ reserves the right to take any action against you, including, without limitation, to restrict sales to you, cancel your orders, and/or suspend or close your account.
After submitting your order, we will send you an order confirmation e-mail with your order number, details of the product you have ordered from us, your payment details and delivery details. Please note that the confirmation e-mail is an acknowledgement that we have received your order and is not an acceptance of the order.

Please note that all orders placed by you are subject to acceptance by us. We may, at our discretion, choose not to accept your order for any reason whatsoever without any liability to you. Once the order has been processed, a shipping confirmation e-mail will be sent with all relevant information about your order. The shipping confirmation or pick-up notification is our acceptance of your order. Please note that JIIJ does not guarantee that all products presented on the Website are in stock at the time of your order. If a product is unavailable, we will contact you shortly, by phone or by e-mail. If we already have received payment for such product, we will refund you the amount of the purchase. The prices of the products will be as displayed on the Website. Prices may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed in an Order Confirmation.

Fulfilment of all orders on the Website is subject to availability. We explicitly reserve the right not to accept your order for any reason.

JIIJ cannot guarantee that the content of www.ji-ij.com is at all time free of inaccuracies or typographical errors, or up-to-date. JIIJ is allowed to, at anytime, change the site’s content and items available in the product range. Errors may occur, even though JIIJ always strives to display the correct texts, images and pricing on the site and web shop. In case of you being charged the wrong amount when shopping from www.ji-ij.com, we will give you the option of placing a new order with the correct price or by cancelling your order. If we cannot get in touch with you, we will cancel your order automatically. JIIJ cannot be held responsible for any damage caused from using the site or from not being able to use the site. A problem-free, uninterrupted, and secure access to the site cannot be guaranteed by JIIJ.
Any in-stock orders can only be cancelled if the order has not yet been fulfilled. The cancellation policy below lays out how you can change or cancel pre-order purchases.
When you purchase a pre-order, you are buying an out-of-stock or soon-to-be-available product not yet in inventory. We may collect no payment or a partial deposit at checkout, store your payment method, then fulfill and charge the full or remaining payment at a future date.
You can cancel a partially paid pre-order order that has not yet been fulfilled.
Payment can be made by the following credit cards and payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, Discover, Diners Club, Maestro, American Express, Shop Pay, Apple Pay, Google Pay. We do not accept any method of payment other than those listed on the Website. The purchases made with Visa and Mastercard are verified by a secure code. Please note that your card is debited with the purchase amount once JIIJ has sent you the order confirmation email. We do our best to make the Website as secure as possible. All credit/debit card transactions on the Website are processed using Shopify Payments, a secure online payment gateway that encrypts your card details in a secure host environment. Payment will be debited and cleared from your account upon acceptance of your order by JIIJ. You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours or that you have been specifically authorized by the owner of the credit/debit card to use it. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorize payment to JIIJ, your order will be cancelled.
We retain title in any product(s) until we have received full payment for such product(s).
When selecting the PayPal option, you will be directed to the PayPal site to “Log In" and review the amount shown before clicking "Pay Now". Once this transaction is complete, you will then return to the Website.
PRICES AND CURRENCY
The product prices displayed on the Website are inclusive of Value-Added Tax (VAT), as applicable. Shipping rates are applied per order. The exact shipping rates depend on the country where your order is being delivered to.
Prices are quoted in US Dollar. If you change the country of delivery while browsing or during check out, prices from that moment may be quoted in a different currency. Please note that changing the country of delivery may have an influence on the price due to a change in currency or to country specific pricing.
We offer different shipping methods to meet your needs as further specified when you check out. We aim to dispatch all orders within 24 hours during weekdays (except US bank holidays). Please note that delivery times are provided as guidelines only, and commence from the date of dispatch. The delivery times do not take into account possible delays caused by payment authorization and/or stock availability. To avoid delays in receiving your order, please make sure to provide the correct billing and shipping information associated with your credit/debit card when placing an order.
RETURNS AND EXCHANGES
Items purchased on ji-ij.com are eligible for return or exchange within 14 days of delivery.
If you wish to return or exchange an item, you can request a return authorization by contacting us at email@example.com or by logging into your account and requesting to return directly through there. Please make sure to state your order number and the name of the item you wish to return. Once you have received a confirmation from us, you will be sent a free return label for self-return, and or more information on exchanges. Free returns/exchanges are only available for the US orders. Unfortunately, we don't offer returns or exchanges for outside the US orders.
Final sale items cannot be returned.
Important information on returns:
• Items must be returned in perfect and unused condition.
• Items must be returned exactly as received. Items must be returned in their original, undamaged box and dust bag as this is considered part of the product.
• When returning by mail, please make sure to return the item and its corresponding box inside another solid carton box to not damage the original packaging. Preferably the original outer packaging used to ship your order.
• JIIJ reserves the right to reject and dispose any returned items that do not meet above requirements. If your return is disposed, you will be notified via email.
• Please note that JIIJ will not refund taxes, duties, and/or any additional charges that may occur. Shipping costs for uncollected packages will not be refunded.
DISPOSED RETURNS ARE NOT REFUNDED
When the returns are received, they are inspected and determined by the Shopify Fulfillment Network whether they are in sellable condition or not. The following conditions would have to be met for shoes to be deemed unsellable and therefore disposed of:
- Missing dunnage in shoe or shoe box
- Missing dust bags
- Damaged shoe laces, embroidery or appliques
- Dirty shoes
- Missing label
- Damaged shoe box
- Damaged soles
Returns that are received with the type of damage listed above would result in the product being destroyed and would not be eligible for a refund.
Therefore, we highly suggest to try the shoes carefully on a soft surface, such as a rug, a mat or a towel, so that the soles would not get marked.
RECEIVING A REFUND
All returns fulfilling the above criteria that are shipped back within the 14-day time period will be refunded to the original form of payment. Delivery costs will be deducted from your refund. Please note that JIIJ will not refund taxes, duties, and/or any additional charges that may occur. Shipping costs for uncollected packages will not be refunded. Once received, refunds take approximately 3-5 business days to process to your bank account/credit card and up to 7 business days to refund through PayPal. Upon completion, a refund confirmation email will be generated. Please note that return and refund processing may take additional time during peak seasonal times.
If you receive an item classified as faulty and/or damaged, you must contact us within 7 days of receipt. JIIJ’s quality guarantee only covers possible manufacturing defects and cannot be held responsible for defects due to:
• Failure or damage caused by improper use or carelessness.
• Aesthetical changes, defects and/or damages caused by normal wear/tear and aging.
EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL
An Event Outside Our Control means any act or event beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic, pandemic, or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks.
If an Event Outside Our Control takes place that affects the performance of our obligations under these Terms of Sale:
a) We will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you; and
b) Our obligations under these general conditions will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of the Event Outside Our Control.
Where the Event Outside Our Control affects our delivery of a product to you, we will arrange a new delivery date with you after the Event Outside Our Control is over. You may cancel the contract if an Event Outside Our Control takes place and you no longer wish us to provide the products.
