“GMA Store” Terms
The GMA Store accepts only the methods of payment offered during the checkout process. The Buyer independently chooses the preferred payment method among those offered on our site. During the payment process the customer may choose between the following payment options:
- Provided that a service against payment via credit card takes place, by submitting their credit card data, the customer grants authorization to charge the respective credit card company with the full price including posted shipping and handling fees on the due date. In this case, the charge is prompted with the order confirmation.
- Provided that a payment takes place via PayPal, the Buyer must have a pre-existing PayPal account and must prove their identity by submitting their access data. After logging in to their PayPal account, Buyer will undergo the PayPal payment process and confirm the payment to Global Meteorite Association.
The Global Meteorite Association may assess payment risks in order to protect the Global Meteorite Association and the Buyer. We reserve the right to contact a Buyer to verify a purchase or to verify an account prior to accepting a payment and/or prior to shipping an item. To minimize the risk that a credit, debit or charge card is being used without the Buyer’s consent, the Global Meteorite Association will validate name, address and other information supplied during the order process against appropriate third-party databases.
