b) any verbal order (including telephone order) by the Buyer which is accepted by the Seller and is subsequently confirmed in writing.
Whether the Buyer’s order is initiated by a written quotation by the Seller or a verbal order by the Buyer, it will be converted to a Sales Order by the Seller.

Once the Sales Order contract is entered into by the Buyer and the 50% deposit paid, the Buyer is not entitled to cancel the Sales Order or return the goods due to change of mind, wrong choice of size, colour or design, or change of circumstance. If the Seller agrees to the cancellation of an order (which they are not obligated to do) there will be a minimum 15% cancellation fee.
